You have been misinformed. And thanks to Nate Zier we have current agreements with PHill and Liberty. KCMO is on a three year cycle and will be renewed in September. BTW, we pay a percentage of all income recvd on KCMO courses annually. Thanks to mostly Jack the KCFDC has a pretty good relationship with KCMO P&R.

I would ask someone before just assuming what someone told you is true. Believe it or not, our partners read our board.

mjohnson : Actually the KCFDC has a record number of current members 408-ish (though many will expire at the end of the month). And yes, some older members don't renew since they dont like the new leadership or things aren't done the old way or someone's ego wasn't stroked enough. That's cool. No big deal. 

I just hear arguments, but no solutions here. I have an idea: run your own events folks. Start planning now because the schedule starts filling at the January meeting.

Per all the "complaining", It costs us nothing to be polite folks. I am guilty of being short with people when I am exhausted, but really just say please and it goes so much further. I suggest Aaron, Derek, and Anthony play a round of golf. I think you all see you are all awesome and genuinely nice folks. The feedback is important as it is how we improve.  I was thinking a rope group at the tee and one at the basket for next year. As much as I want to play in the WO again, I think I will continue to volunteer.

Great weekend, thank you Dick and everyone else. Just more conflicting thoughts for you, I have heard several grand master age people "b%tching", well maybe "complaining" , well maybe just "metioning it", about playing Swope Gold and another course on the same day. I thought that was the best part, that was a awesome day. Thanks again.

I know this is not your complaint Justin. Here's my response. There's a reason everyone got a tag that said athlete. If a player can't handle two tournament rounds in one day, then that is the point. It is a physical and mental game especially when it 90 plus degrees with mid west humidity. Some players did worse the first than second. Some did the opposite. It makes it a better event. 

Given the type of courses we have, if we all just played one round a day for a tournament, I wouldn't see it as a challenge.

A million thanks to the players and volunteers.

One little suggestion with doubles at Swope. What about Pro/Am doubles? We used to do this at Rosedale. Sing up either Pro or Am and then have two sets of cards. Pro pull from one and Am from the other. Must match number and suit. Just an idea. Balances the field. Less of a gamble on having CD and Shannon doubled together:)

Thanks for all you do Van!

We can always do better, but this was freaking awesome. A million thanks to all who gave time and energy to this event. It takes a village! I saw our old leader boards today in storage. I think I can use a dry erase to remove the permanent marker and the other one is clean. So remember those for next year.

Just a quick note to thank all the volunteers out there this weekend. In two days at WW we have had Josh O., John Theiss, Nova P., Marty and Ruth Ann, Soup and Rebecca, Bobby Deitzel (sp), Doug Kheeler, Adam Abernathy, and a bit from GI Dave, Van Spratford, and Ben Crosby:). My point is this was at one course and the event isn't over yet. Q:How awesome is our community? A:1000%. Thank you to all. We are shining right now folks. Let's keep it up!

So beyond this banter, today was phenomenal at Water Works. Everyone of you should stand up straighter knowing how well this town represents. Lots of compliments today folks. Lots. Thanks to the volunteers who came out at all the courses. See you all tomorrow up north. The Wide Open has some great energy rocking. Let's keep it going! Final 9 Sunday afternoon.

^^^^ Depends on your division. Int&Rec no. Am1 yes. Open no.

So what's the source here? 

My experience has shown me this guy is an ego maniac with a radio show based on general ignorance and strong opinions with the occasional capitulation to appear to be more likeable.

This stereotype is not about our sport. It is about a wide spread social stereotype among working and middle class folks in the US and the idea of Frisbee. This is why I always correct anyone who says Frisbee. It is a disc. It goes fast. You don't want to play catch with it, and it does things a Frisbee cannot. The people who play professionally are athletes! That usually gets the other person to start asking questions. Educate some folks!

So the KCFDC community is, as always, incredible! Thanks to Mark No Sleep Mills, Beast Kujo (kickin ass in general), Nova Pick Up some mulch, Nick Chainsaw Wink, Dan Mulch Rake Howard, and VP Nate Zier. Plus me that is 21 hours of great work at WW. Everyone showed up to get something done. Followed it up with lunch,drinks, and a few holes of WW.

There's still a bit more to do but most of it is done.

Thank you!
