I just talked with Patrick. We are planning on league barring any lightening. Ace beer next week when we have a higher turnout. I doubt we will have many out tonight, but I've been wrong before.  :)

Just gauging interest in league tonight. Patrick Smith will be there in place of Van tonight, and I'll be helping out too.
So with the rain, I am wondering on how many will come out to play tonight, and if I should wait to bring Ace beer till next week with presumably higher attendance.
I'll check back when we get closer and see what the weather is doing.

If you haven' played this course, it is well worth the drive. I haven't been there in a couple years, but the front 18 are pretty nice. Another Tuesday night option.

I've grown tired of doing things for people who don't otherwise give a f*ck.

I LOVE this guy!

Do you want wood only? I have a concrete bird bath pillar that is round, 2' long and 7" diameter.

You get it there, and we'll put it somewhere. ;D

The last couple weeks I have put in a couple hours pulling logs and sticks along fairways 3 and 6 to help stop the dirt from flowing down the hill in the rain.

Any help is appreciated and it only takes a couple minutes to place a few sticks or logs along the edges of the fairways.

WYCO remains on Friday night and Mark Hogins has volunteered to run it.

Yes.  Thank you!  Not to mention they dodged discs all day and worked it so they always had eyes on those coming off the box on a very busy day.  Not to mention those new players out today saw how much some hard workers would do to ensure a safe means to cross the ditch. 

Thanks guys.  This is one thing of what makes disc golf in KC  top notch.

A million thanks. Another fine example of personal leadership, putting together a plan, and following through.

In response to the apparent upheaval, I will address what I have read here. First and foremost, Rob Martin took the initiative, gauged interest, created a poll, researched what he needed to do, and brought it to the meeting for approval. (Applause all around for proactive and involved membership!)

It seems odd to me that once the decision was made there was suddenly all of this interest. Where was it before? Quality organizations do not spend their time and energy reacting. Instead, they are proactive and look towards the future. Again, Rob has demonstrated this in every way.  In addition to Rob’s efforts, Chris Timko searched as did Mike Petrin (VP of Kansas), Ben Crosby (VP of MO), and Rick Rothstein (at-large board member and salty staple of the KCFDC). There was no positive response. So, just to be clear there was a lot of behind the scenes work on this well before this meeting.

Changing the league date is not at all about competing with another WYCO league (WYCO Park is 18 miles from Rosedale). We have precedence for this as well. The KCFDC already runs two leagues on Tuesday night (SMP is 21 miles from Swope). Wednesday is the night Rob can run the league and that is the park he prefers.

The commitment to running a league is more than just being there. It also doing the paperwork, reporting, and depositing. For the league coordinator, this is key to running successful leagues on the club side. If we do not accurately report, we cannot pay out aces in a timely fashion (remember Young Park last year?), nor can we report income accurately which has negative consequences across the board for the clubs status and makes headaches for our treasure and lawyer. I would also add the improvements the KCFDC has funded in the last years are from that income as well tournaments. 

Lastly, WYCO is a Wide Open course this year. I am sure many players, local and out-of-towners, will appreciate the opportunity to play rated rounds leading up to the event. The bottom line is Rob took the initiative, and if in the end this doesn’t work out and people don’t like it, we will make changes. Change is hard to do. I get it. People may choose to play WYCO Friday still and that is awesome. No one is saying otherwise. It is true Swope went back to Tuesday, and we have had Van at the reigns all that time as well. IT’S THE PEOPLE that make the difference anywhere and everywhere you go. Let’s not beat down Rob for being on-the-ball.

So the thread title is KCFDC PDGA league, but FTL is not a KCFDC league. Just FYI. What about the league with the most attendance? WW? or Rosedale? I don't know if Greg or Scott would be interested, but a thought. We have a league for every week night, so I am not so sure adding another would attendance or participation all around.

Rob, Thanks for volunteering. What would work best for you?
