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 Robís 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 doesnít work out and people donít 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. ITíS THE PEOPLE that make the difference anywhere and everywhere you go. Letís not beat down Rob for being on-the-ball.

Leagues / Re: 2014 KCFDC PDGA League
« on: March 04, 2014, 02:20:58 PM »
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?

The East side wants to play a Kansas course as their choice? That's odd. I say this because I did not choose WYCO.

 but you did for the KCWO! Uuuggggghhh!

Gonna be more of that. #kcwideopen  ;D

WYCO it is, so go get it east of state line. Looking forward to this one again.

156? I lost mine from last year. Maybe that was the number. Doesn't matter I guess since the season's over.

BTW, the BoD has advised to not collect a dollar for the youth league and Rick has been in contact with Doug about some considerations and support for this endeavor.
Thanks Doug!

Thanks to Eric and Ben Crosby. Eric and Ben have worked with the city to shore up our relationship and by doing some good faith work on the course we hope to continue this positive momentum in Lee's Summit.

Yep, I keep some penetrating oil in the clubhouse at Swope. It works every time with some force. Wd-40 is what not to use. It just attracts dirt and gums up the works.

General Banter / KCFDC Elections and Swap Meet
« on: November 11, 2013, 08:36:44 PM »
<repost>

So, I must admit I have a vested interest in promoting this event. This lies on two fronts; I like to collect collectable and great throwing discs, and I hope the swap meet brings out more members, possibly new members, for the elections.

So dig deep in your closets and golf bags/bins and show up at 6:00 in the back room of the Westport Flea Market to buy, sell, or trade discs and disc related items.

Elections and BoD report starts at 6:45. This yearís KCFDC Bag Tags will be available too.
