Leagues / Summer League 2015 at SMP
« on: February 25, 2015, 10:04:17 pm »
The days are getting longer and we will soon be back to non-glow league play five nights a week.

We have a couple of opportunities to help with 2015 league. While Peter Bures is staying on as Course Coordinator, he has stepped down from running SMP league and we are looking to fill that spot he held for many years. Thank you Peter.

League Coordinator has a few primary responsibilities. Be there on time, communicate with the people who need to know, run a fair league, fill out paper and on-line doc for each week, and make timely deposits or get them to someone who will.

Leagues officially start April 1st

A little respect to a local legend.

Hell of a shot!

SSS Wizards!!! Preferably black or pink (eraser pink). That is all I throw from Gateway.

The softness of the Super stupid Soft is unreliable though. I have to touch any disc before I buy it.

I am running the Midwest Doubles Championship and sorry to bother everyone.  I moved it to that date without realizing the conflict and just have not had time to move it from this thread until now.  I put it back to its original date in April.  I would never try to intentionally conflict with a club event.

I have updated the main page with most of the events i noticed in this thread

Thank you.

Tournaments / Re: Newcomer's first PDGA experience gone wrong.....

That sucks James. I know you were both so excited for this first tournament experience and then some d. bags ruin it. I can almost guarantee that wouldn't happen here, and I bet you'd agree. :) :) I have played in some out-of-town events and had some less than helpful folks on my card. Never to this extent, but when that happens, I don't return to that town or the event. Pretty simple. It leaves a bad taste in your mouth. Sorry to hear that bro.

BTW, this was so much better than any of Jack's rants  ;D

Old Pike / Re: course navigation
« on: January 31, 2015, 08:27:19 pm »
I play there a lot and see your point. However, Old Pike is a private club, so take it up with them. The KCFDC cannot make improvements there. Maybe the annual 50 bucks could go towards tee signs.

Having said that, there have been many problems with vandalism and theft after dark. There is foot traffic that goes through there other than disc golfers. Mike T. made aware of the lights that were stolen and just random destruction. It sucks.

DD and Old Pike worked together on the bridge and the donation box though. And since they are made of steel, I think they will stay put :)

"You can do as you see fit, but for me the knowledge that mountain bikers took the initiative to do what is right says more to me than the fact that gunfire happened again in the city......"

Agreed. My exact thoughts. Someone took the initiative.

A million thanks to all who made it out today. We'll get it posted but I think about 15 made it out all come to work.
Again, thanks to everyone for making KC golf the best around.

BTW, if anyone ended up w/ an extra Craftsman shovel, it's mine.  ;)

I'll be there and bringing some help! If you play Down Under league and can get away, come out and help. We can get this done in an hour and half - two hours. Congratulate ourselves for a job well done, get some lunch (on the club), and then play our favorite league at 12:30.

Water Works / Water Works Trash and Baskets
« on: January 12, 2015, 01:17:25 pm »
Thanks to Mark Mills, Kujo, Jamie Barry, Mike Fenton, Danny Rodriguez, and Ryan Keck for their help with WW this weekend and today. Mark and Kujo are moving some baskets today and all the trash cans have been emptied and bags carried to the street.

If you are out there playing, any help is appreciated and if you pack it out, pack it in. Also, we carried a lot of bottles out yesterday. Please no bottles, or take em with you.

Pete Cashen is working on signage, and we will spread the word.

The club provides utensils, bowls, crackers, cheese, etc.

Tournaments / Re: East Vs. West 2015
« on: December 24, 2014, 12:09:03 am »
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.

Why would a casual golfer be playing in it? Other than qualifying at an event or being picked by a captain to help the team win?

Because there are not 32 professional disc golfers in Kansas City. There are some good casual players in the mix as well. Maybe I am wrong, but I can only think of a few pro's in town.

My other point was a good captain recognizes opportunities and threats by knowing the players. Who can do that for the East? Meanwhile, Joe has shown us he is the best pick for the West.
