Tournaments / Re: 30th Kansas City Wide Open
« on: January 07, 2012, 01:47:44 PM »
Played new BV set up today with 7 others. Most of us shot 59 and 60 with Nick Wink shooting a respectable 55. It's a great new set up. In fact, I want to play it again tomorrow. It is so much more fun. I was not exhausted at all after playing it either. I think the BV and BS combo adds the fatigue factor and those who are more physically fit and can play 6 hours a day of consistent golf will make some positive moves. Great work to all involved. BV is moving up on my list very quickly.

General Banter / Re: Impending Invasions by Outsiders?

Great thread and great discussion many good points made by many.


On the initial discussion of DD coming to town, the 2011 Ace Race was sponsored by the KCFDC, DGW, and  DD as well as a host of others (Tall Grass, Fore Twenty, P.E.) and without everyone's participation, it would not have been a good event for the players, which we were able to include an additional 50 players with DD's help.

Yes, having DD or other vendors run some events in cooperation with the KCFDC has been discussed in meetings and the conclusion has largely been the club would prefer to have club members run events or even the club run events, but as Jack mentioned, we just do not get enough volunteers from our membership to run as many events as we would like. And if it makes the experience better for the players, then yeah. Personally, as a player not a BoD member, I am happiest with whoever can provide a great event for the players (merch., games, food, beverages, etc.) and give some money back to the club.

Rick has mentioned his interest in working with Jeremy not against him. If it can benefit the club and its members, then why not? There is a big difference here though, the KCFDC is a club. All the others, as Loomis noted, are separate entities with one primary goal: to make money. There is nothing wrong with that but thw two are not comparable in that way.


About the WO, if we as members really want to bring the "magnitude" up on this event, we need to find sponsors, or just be sponsors. Not big ones, just small ones, 25.00, 50.00, 100.00 multiplied by 20,30 or 50 goes a long way towards providing more for the players. I am really happy to see the discussion go back to this event and players saying more of what they want and after reading the initial plans for the WO, it also seems our voices have been heard.  :)

Yeah, I haven't played out there much lately but Loomis pointed out all the dead and, as of today, many more cut down. A few holes are less challenging as of today.

I did play the new hole 13 for the first time and it is a great hole. I took a five on it and, while I know it is not that hard, felt okay with it. Nice work and thanks!

General Banter / Re: New years eve round?
« on: December 29, 2011, 01:40:19 AM »
So the question about a NYE round. Saturday DU is happening per usual, no? Seems like place with the highest percentage possible for getting an ace in 2011 before time runs out.  :) And with the unseasonably awesome weather we are having, I think I will try to make it.

 Ryan Oldham got number 8  DU last NYE. On the tee pad he said and I quote, "I'm gonna make this hole my b%tch." And with a lofty anny route, he did. Just sayin', something to the last day of the year (same as the first). ;)

Prospero Ano Nuevo y'all!

I agree, Jay should have birthdays more often...
At least once a year, and hey, what were the top three scores? 60,61,62?

Jack, Thanks for the reminder to tap people in construction. I may have found a solution to the generator issue. Will post again when I know something.

Tournaments / KAN U WYCO - Saturday, March 17th
« on: December 19, 2011, 09:06:27 PM »
All,
The KCFDC is accepting proposals for the 2012 KAN U WYCO. A number of individuals have expressed interest in running the event, while the usual suspects have not.

The KCFDC would very much like to be the sponsor of the event. The tournament will be March 17th. Yes, it is St. Patrick's Day. Interested in running the first local PDGA event of the year to kick start the season? 

Interested? Send a proposal with details concerning how much money you will need if any, what the return to the club will be, player's packs for Am and Pro players, any other perks for players and any additional info to any current BoD member and we will, hopefully, make a decision at the January 11th meeting, which all are invited to attend per usual.

Thanks!

That's the spirit. I can't do it all, but I'd love to help.

Matt, A generator is a huge expense for something we would rarely use except for Ice Bowl or Lion's Den. A good idea just probably not the best use of club funds.

Matt has always been willing to help and has given lots of merchandise in the past. Anyone else want to help?

All right KCFDC community! 56 views and not one response? No ideas out there? No volunteers?

So you see as a community this is how we put on great events. I can think of five people who always want to be part of something great, but the thing is we do not want those same  five people always doing everything as that leads to more of the same and no change. I know there are lots of new players and up and coming members of our community who have ideas and passion. Bring it on!

We consistently have the largest Ice Bowl in the country and the world, so let's show some appreciation for a great cause and the great players who come out and make this happen.

Share your ideas and thoughts! Furthermore, if you have a great idea, how can you/we make it happen with the help of your local club?

Tournaments / Ice Bowl Chili Contest- Organizer and Volunteers Needed!
« on: December 16, 2011, 05:25:16 PM »
The KCFDC is looking for a volunteer to run the food portion of the Ice Bowl on Sunday Jan 29th.

Your responsibilities would include running the chili contest: labeling crocks and pots for judges, organizing the judges/judging, making sure all entries have power (generator- if you have one great, or you know someone- the generator should be large as in industrial), and helping to put out condiments, drinks, plasticware, plates, bowls and napkins all of which is provided by the club. Additionally, anyone who can conjure up some form of sponsorship would be great, either in merchandise, of any type, or gift certificates, etc.

We are also looking for a beer sponsor if you have an in with any local or national brewers.

If interested, please contact me via this board, and I will coordinate with Rick and the club.

Thank you KCFDC community!
