I also heard that today was April 1st and only fools fall for fake news. And of course, republicans...

As we were decorating the xmas tree this year I realized how the old lights we had were very similar to the Dems that voted for Osama....half were'nt very bright, and the other half didn't work.  ;D

This guy.  ???

Happy 2015 everyone...I know I am a bit late!!

I am excited to start my 4th year running Swope League...league is going to kick off on April 7 directly at 6pm.  I will be at the Club House as usual, so please come find me and get signed in as quickly as possible, so we can start on time.

I am going to play short pads and short pins with no OB (Mandos will be in play...that will not change this year).  Thanks to Patick who will move everything short by opening day!!  I hope to have a big group for the opening night!  Come on out and lets have a fun. 

816-665-1906 (please call or text if you are running late, if you need to get ahold of me, or if you just want to play a round sometime  ;D )

P.S.  I want to change up some league nights through out the summer...suggestions are always welcome.  I am thinking of some of the normal ones (All-In KCFDC Bag Tag nights, some BYOP and Random Dubs, etc.), but would like to hear from you and see what piques your interest.

I just might volunteer again. It was very fun an rewarding in many ways. I got to meet all the top pro's..and see first hand how they attacked certain holes.
    Learned about my game, and some of their game.
Got to work with a great group of people.And meet the guys,and gals who some had donated their time and efforts preparing the course's  used for this event.
   ...well you just had to be there
The whole weekend was a Kodak moment.
I Thank those involve for everything they did.

That is awesome. Can we quote you on " The whole weekend was a Kodak moment" ? It reminds me of two years ago Dave Hemmeline said KC = "Big Heart". That's the vibe out there for the whole weekend. We do a  great job at welcoming folks and they return the kindness.

Here people are getting all frothy over what?  Options?  We should be thankful to have so many options.  Personally I feel Rob is a great guy and ANYONE who runs any league is to be commended for their time and commitment. 

I don't understand why there has to be so much beef about this.  If you want to play in a league do so.  If you want to play in another league do so.  If you don't, then go play with yourself.

Monday: Rosedale (Ladies and New Players), Olathe, Cliff Drive = 4
Tuesday: Swope, SMP, (Old Pike) =3
Wednesday: Rosedale, PDGA Wandering = 2
Thursday: Water Works = 1
Friday: WyCo, (FTL) = 2

So why the changes? Because that's what the people who run them can do. Our members don't want to be told what to do, do they? I know I don't. I have always been in favor of bottom up engagement by members. The schedule we are working on now it a result of who can do what and when. For example, there was no one to run New Players at Rosedale, but Aaron could do it at PHill. Rob started PDGA league last year, but now can only do it on Monday. Other folks have volunteered to help out even if the location isn't super convenient for them i.e Van Spratford moved up north but will continue at Swope.

Nate, Pete, and I put our feelers out and found out who could do what. Rob contacted me about PDGA league and he can only do Monday. Do our members want that? If so, thank you Rob.  And thank you to everyone involved Jack, Tom, Rhonda, Van, Mike T, Jay Rivard, Jason Pennington, Greg Utz, Harold, Mark Hogins, Aaron and anyone I missed.  If the membership doesn't want it. Let it be known. So far, I see only a couple of detractors and I think it is mostly personal and, frankly, it just pisses me off.

Obviously, this has become a mountain out of a mole hill and now I suppose we will need a formalized process of setting up the league schedule. OH JOY! I think this kind of behavior is what pushes people away from the club.

If I read this thread as a non-member, I likely would not join. Just saying.

So do we need a process beginning in February to determine the schedule? Will that make everyone happy? I think not. The sense I get is that the "almighty Board of Directors" has made some arbitrary decisions. Well being the head of the board, that has not been the case, I have simply communicated what I know.  Funny me.

I have tried to give members the opportunity to communicate and engage in planning. It's working. I guess.

I can't wait to play golf tonight.

You know no matter what you try, it's never good enough.

Does everyone see that this is a conversation about when we should have leagues? What I posted are what was proposed. Now instead of talking about it, folks are pointing fingers and blaming others.

Nothing is set in stone folks. How about some discussion on this forum. That is why we have it. Next board meeting is next Monday the 9th where among other things the league schedule will be discussed/approved/etc.

Not being snarky  ;) but that's where the most people live.  ;D

And conversely, according to the map, that is not the truth in Europe. There I would guess it is a matter of money and local government cooperation. But I really don't know.
