 OLD PIKE, best payouts in KC, BaaaaaaLeeeeedat!

Who invited this guy?  :)

I used to say the same thing last year when Swope was moved to Monday, and we had Tuesday league anyway.

Cool! I'll get the Kraut, Chips and other condiments.

Should be a blast tonight folks, come on out!

Since Utz wants to promote Old Pike on the Swope thread, I will just remind you that the oldest course in KC has a club league every Tuesday as well. No brats  :) , just good sexy golf.  Next week is random draw doubles if Van does as he has been.

SMP is also every Tuesday for those on the west side of town. Club member Peter Bures stepped up to run that league this year.

Three leagues on Tuesday in this little ol' town. Welcome St. Mary's!
woot woot

This forum could use some more Neckbeard. As usual, your review and rebuttal was just what I needed for a Sunday smile. 

Congrats Mina!! Most of us (everyone except SD apparently) are very proud of your achievements and respect/envy your dedication. Keep killin' it

Word! More Neckbeard and less hate. Way to go Minna and Loomis.

Adam Morrison and Sarah Hokom rocked it to the top as well.

It's good to see Hyzer back with his usual rants, and he brings up an excellent point. It is 3 to 5 guys/gals who generally do all the work at any given course. They do this on their time and sometimes dime. To some degree it's just a fact of organizations; a small number of people, say 20%, cause the vast majority of problems, and similarly, a small number of people do the vast majority of work. The name for this slips my mind on this Friday night. Regardless of what it's called, Mike has a valid point. Maybe the timing for this watering event was poor for the vast majority, yet we can all still be involved.


Many may not know it but the KCFDC is one of the largest disc golf clubs in the country, and hence the world. I hear lots of gripes about the club, the board, the courses, the tournaments, and so on. Well, you want it, so let's work together to change it. The KCFDC BoD has worked hard to create a culture of greater transparency  which is moving away from the old model of two or three individuals doing all the work  and delegating responsibilities to general membership, BoD members (all nine), and course coordinators in an effort to be  more proactive in our behavior. We invite more participation from general membership in all aspects of the organization and disc golf in general.

All of us have a course, a cause, or community we love for whatever reason. What can you do to make it better? Help benefit others? Educate others about your passion? The KCFDC wants to help make that happen. Even if Mike does bad mouth us every chance he gets, it's because he loves the game and the community.

Next Board meeting second week of August.

Swope League tonight! The course is still pretty short and looking better after the Fourth of July bonanza. I'll be out there early pulling and collecting trash. If you are out on the course and see a full bag of trash, please pull or carry it to the road, so our friends at P&R will pick it up.

I'll also move a couple of pins tonight, but still keeping it a little shorter then WO setting  :D

Hope to see you out there! The weather is finally great.

It hasn't been moved because it is the more challenging shot. Without the guardian trees on the left position, it is either a 2 or a 3, while the right position is a 2,3, or 4. But, yeah, I'll move it and thanks for the request. Just FYI as to why it hasn't been moved. Otherwise, I have set the course pretty short for now. 
I'll be out there tomorrow to prep for league and get the trash.
Swope League tomorrow btw

I'll be moving some of Swope shorter tomorrow for Tuesday's league. I'm leaving 15 in the peninsula and 1 long, but moving most of the rest. See you Tuesday for league.

I was also thinking that since Old Pike Mike brought his league to Swope; we should return the favor sometime this summer. Wachou tink?

We really can look back on the last weekend and raise our heads a little higher. The KCWO Committee blew us all away with the fruits of their labors. Rick, Crazy, Jack, Tavish and Dan stepped up and gave their passion for the sport right back to their hometown. All of the volunteers, course TDs, Beer League, KCFDC BOD, sponsors big and small, Kansas Citians, and club members just set the standard for the KCWO. I heard accolades in all directions. Everybody was really impressed with the courses, the challenge, and the player experience. What a pleasure being part of this community is.

I talked to Dave Hemmeline before the awards ceremony, and he summed up his feelings about KC, the courses, and the community in two words, "Big heart."
