Tournaments / Re: East Vs. West 2015

Thanks Tracy. It'll be good for new members to get an idea of what this event is.

IMO, a good team captain can create match ups so that even a good casual player can help his/her team.

So who's running this now? Not team captains, but the big picture. Serious question. Tracy? I'd love to see juniors and women added to the format. Great suggestion Joe! 20 player teams. I think this town can support that.

One bit of advice, don't follow the other guy's lead. Your strategy is up to you East Side.

Opinion, the year I played in this event I qualified at a club league. Not a sanctioned event. I had no chance last year as I didn't want to or couldn't play in the qualifiers. There's a lot to be said for having so many leagues at so many great courses.

I love the random draw match play format too! It adds just enough randomness in the context of  the event format. This will bring the wild card players. Very nice addition there.

Sounds like TheViolator is ready to join the Tech Team. Just saying.

Come out to Old Pike this Tuesday for DG Nomad glow round. We will "light up" all 18 baskets with the DG Nomad chains and lights.

Winter Leagues / Remaining Glow Dates
« on: November 28, 2014, 07:01:21 pm »
We are looking for someone to run the remaining KCFDC glow dates;
DEC 20   Rosedale
JAN 24   Swope
FEB 21   Liberty
MAR 21   SMP

Ben Crosby has other responsibilities to take care of and we'd appreciate anyone who would like to help. I am unable to, otherwise, I would.
This would mean coordinating the set up and return of all the chains and lights. I am guessing a three to six man team can get this fairly quickly if planned in advance. We will provide a payout sheet and all that jazz. Interested in helping out? Contact me or just respond here.

I am planning on running a couple of glow leagues soon; one at Old Pike and the other at WW. Details to follow.

Good point Nate. It could be something to consider for this year.

The other big issue from the KCFDC view is we already have excellent partnerships with disc retailers here in KC. I didn't make a lot of sense with all the other ways to go out and buy discs in KC. But hey, if the membership wants to explore it again, then a volunteer should take a look at the ups/downs/strengths, and so on of it.

One other thing, in KCMO the KCFDC pays a percentage of "in park" income to the city of KCMO per our agreement with P&R.

Like Timko acing WW 17 on the peninsula with a skip off the green. That is obviously so ace-able.

I think clean politics, or honest politics, or transparent politics would be oxymoron-ish.

I have played a bit of this course, and ridden all the trails. Cool set up out there. I think I'll try to play this one.

General Banter / November 15th Club Elections/ Voting Item

KCFDC Club Elections
[/b]

November 15th Westport Flea Market Banquet Room 4:00-8:00
[/b][/size]

Once again, the KCFDC hopes a free meal will bring a large turnout for this year’s elections. “Drinks” are on you. The KCFDC has got the rest.

Current club members attend for free. Not current? Re-up or pay 10 bucks for dinner.

The Chiefs and Royals baskets will be raffled that night. Yes, the baskets are going that night. Bag tags are also available that evening.

4:00 -5:00 Disc Swap Meet - Bring what you want to sell or trade. Bring what you think someone will want or throw, not your junk. This will last from 4:00-5:00 and can reconvene after club business and elections.

5:00 -6:00 Dinner- Flea Market burgers, chicken breasts, roasted potatoes, salad, ice, tea and coffee. Alcoholic drinks not included.

6:00 -8:00 Club Business, Nominations, Elections, Basket Raffle, and Results. Disc Swap Meet continues.

There are five positions to fill this year.

Nominees do not to be present. A proxy member will stand in and speak for him/her. Anyone interested in self-nominating can email: ekolkmeier@hotmail.com

IMPORTANT

There is a motion to amend our Bylaws, and this must go to general membership and members will vote on this at our meeting.

Article V covers Officers.
Sections 6 through 9 cover the duties of the President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer.
It was amended last year (2013) to include: "This office must be held by a board member who attributes less than 51% of their income to disc golf related industries."

The proposal is to eliminate this clause and allow anyone who is elected by the membership to serve in any Board position.

A bit of background is in order. When Jack and Tavish worked with our current attorney to file for a 501 C 3. I believe it was the attorney's suggestion to include the original clause that forbade anyone who made most of their living from disc golf to be elected to the Board.

Last year's (2013) Board softened this by allowing such people to at least serve on the Board, but only as At-large Members.

The motion is to amend the bylaws to eliminate the clause that reads "This office must be held by a board member who attributes less than 51% of their income to disc golf related industries." from sections 6, 7, 8 and 9 in Article V.

Cliff Drive / Re: Shared Use- MTBs and Disc Golf
« on: October 10, 2014, 09:34:13 pm »
I just didn't like the idea of losing DG holes over it. Even if the MTB dudes ride right down the fairway on 7 or 8 at Cliff, it ain't like there's going to be a steady stream of them all day long. Let them ride through and then play the hole, not complicated at all.

Agreed.

Cliff Drive / Shared Use- MTBs and Disc Golf
« on: October 07, 2014, 01:49:49 pm »
This is just a heads up on avoiding some issues at Cliff Drive and Stocksdale as we play the courses and use the parks.

I have been in contact with the shareholders in these parks and everyone agrees we just need to raise awareness and inform and educate. So, there will be some new signs in both parks/courses/trails and as you play/ride be courteous and respectful of each other.

There will certainly be some feathers ruffled but the last thing we want is an injury or bad press for our sport and stewardship in the parks.

You know, a PM would do the trick. You know who ran this event. Publicly calling out on two forums. I have got zero respect for that.
