General Banter / one of the best soccer games ever-USA women vs Canada!
« on: August 06, 2012, 04:20:54 PM »
this had to be one of the best games ever in women's soccer.  if you missed it and are a soccer fan, you must find a way to watch this game.  Sinclair with the hat trick, back and forth goals being scored, double  extra time, Rapinoe was as good as ever, and Morgan comes up big at the end.

Young Park - Blue Springs / spraying for ivy tonight 5-10-12
« on: May 10, 2012, 01:37:56 PM »
I will be out at the park spraying tonight at 5.  Come on out and let's get down on some ivy eradication.  We got 12 hours in already this year and this should be the last big ivy bomb drop before the KCWO. 

Future work projects will be  spreading mulch and weed wacking.  I will post those as we get closer.  I would like to see what the P&R accomplish first and then take it from there.

Young Park - Blue Springs / 5-9-12
« on: May 09, 2012, 09:42:01 AM »
I need someone to step and run league tonight.  Matt was going to run it but has been asked to attend the board meeting to go over CC duties at WW.

Anyone interested?

So this is a heads up for those of you that have AC units with leaks.  My cousin is in Heating and Air and came over to recharge my house  AC.  Freon recently doubled in price and will triple in price in a few weeks.  So if you have an older unit, now might be the time to get it recharged before it costs you more.  Supposedly the EPA is trying to get Americans to switch over to newer units that use a different type of freon.  This freon can't be used in older units so millions of folks will have to face the unexpected higher costs of freon or paying thousands for a new unit, lines, a coil etc. 

When  he told me the cost for the freon (his costs) i was shocked.  So i hope this saves a couple of you all some dineros if you were planning on recharging your AC units.

Young Park - Blue Springs / 4-18-78 League
« on: April 19, 2012, 12:35:38 PM »
14 players out for league with great weather and  minimal wind.  We had a first timer, Tony Burnett come out to league and shoot pretty well.  After the round, Jake Daddy/Riley (Tony Hawk, Tony Montanna ) went into the pond and pulled out several discs and returned them to the owners.  Slim won the ctp on hole 3 being about 5 feet away. 

Ossa and Theiss tied and went to a 3 hole playoff with Jose taking it on Short Tee 9 to Basket 11 on mound.   Nice to see ole Teddy Keith out.  Josa mentioned that he hit several 40+ jump putts and has spent the last couple weeks practicing hard for KCWO.

Young Park - Blue Springs / League 4-4- 2012
« on: April 05, 2012, 12:12:35 PM »
Rain, rain, stay away!  We were able to get the entire round in with no rain or lightning issues.   Some ominous clouds to the North last night.  Wind was minimal which is usually is at Young.

Eleven players out for league.  Dan Coffman won the Masters and his protege Brandon, took Open.  Brandon and myself were tied after 18  we played hole 11 and tied and then played safari due to low light.  Played short pad 1 to 11's basket on the mound.  I was pin high and missed a shorty while Brandon was 30+ short.   We both missed and i had a long role out.  Brandon hit the come backer for the win about 30+ out.  Timko put a nice string of bridie runs together (5)  but had a couple typical "YP -you got served" holes that kept him out.  Paul and Tommy V cash again.

Young Park - Blue Springs / spreading straw bales this Saturday
« on: February 23, 2012, 12:45:52 PM »
I am working on securing a trailor load of straw for this Sat, Feb 25 at 10 am.  The course needs straw spread throughout to protect the seed that was put into the ground with a seed drill.  The parks department seeded the course thoroughly and we need to help protect the new growth. 

In addition, having a mild winter has led to more foot traffic on the grass versus foot traffic on snow or ice.  Getting this straw down now will help ensure better grow later.  Plus, being  a tighter course with less pin placements, the same areas get used more consistenly and wear down faster.     We are hoping to have Young Park looking fabulous for the KCWO this summer. 

Poison ivy spraying parties will be occuring later this year.  Stay tuned...

Found and Lost / Darin Bolyard-Thanks for returning my disc
« on: January 27, 2012, 12:43:48 PM »
I wanted to give a big thanks to Darin Bolyard for retrieving discs from young park's big pond and calling all these folks back.   I met up with him yesterday and he returned my disc as well as Neil Roth's.  If you do not go in for  them then you are giving up on the disc and it is fair game in my opinion.  I would even pay to get most of the plastic back.   There was no hustle or fee, just a good dude returning plastic.  He showed me his stack and asked if i knew of any of the folks.  I saw some familiar names.  I asked him who he has met and returned discs to and the list of players was really long.  I was thinking that he has found a great way to meet players since he is somewhat of a newer player.  Most newer players stay away from leagues but he had met so many of the local hard core group of players this way.  You either have to play every day or hit leagues to get to the point where you see a bunch of familiar faces.  And for so many of us, i think it is the social aspect and cool folks you meet that make disc so great. Anyway, that was super cool of him.

Since the KCFDC is working towards being a 501-3C, it is a priority  to increase our community involvement.  We have a great opportunity to meet and introduce new folks to disc golf on Saturday, Jan 21st in Independence .  This is a great way to generate interest for our sport, promote the ICE BOWL(our best fund-raising event), promote our courses, leagues, and possibly meet future sponsors for our events, and to encourage folks to come and check out the KCWO this summer.  These are the type of grass roots efforts that are necessary in the attempt to make disc golf more mainstream and build our base. Generating interest will not only bring in new blood to our club, but it will bring us a youth movement. 

The club has been granted a free booth at the Youth Sports Expo.  We need some folks to volunteer and hang out at the booth, throw some discs at the basket, do a putting contest etc.   This is a really simple and easy way to give back to the sport and club.   Independence would be an ideal location for a course, especially since their rival cities/parks depts BS and LS currently have courses, and Raytown is possibly in the works.  It often times takes years to get the parks depts on board, but us making a strong presence will only aid us in the future


Saturday January 21st, 1-3 pm
Truman Memorial Building
 416 West Maple, Independence

The Blue Springs Youth Expo is the following weekend, Jan 28th from 9-1.  If anyone is interested in volunteering please let me know.  We were also given a free booth and  I am not sure i can swing both events due to a coaching conflict.  I can be at BS by 9:45 so i would need someone to set up.

Water Works / Course Coordinator at WW
« on: November 29, 2011, 12:19:15 PM »
The KCFDC is looking for someone to take over as the Course Coordinator for Water Works.  This person would have to be able to get along and work well with Bill Neenan.  I believe Bill is still interested in volunteering his help and giving back to WW.  So if you think you can handle Bill's super relaxed personality, and you would like to step up and make disc golf better, throw your name out.

The job requires work but no one is supposed to do all of the work.  The CC is a leader that is visible on the course, talks to new players and is an ambassador for the game and club, organizes works days when needed, organizes trash removal, and reports any concerns/wishes to the KCFDC Board.

For the last couple years funding for a school course in NKC school district has been under way at 106 and N Antioch. This  is a 35-40k project with all the construction required and the 8K raised could of never funded what we have accomplished thus far.  I have not posted much about the progress of this course but i have to give a shout out to Messengers Lawn Care.   They have been involved from the beginning and have donated heavy machinery countless times along with skilled drivers whenever we rent a deforester or whenever we need dirt work.  A couple months ago they brought out a battalion of workers with chain saws, a skid, and a chipper.  Today, Messengers donated even more mass labor.  There were  25 workers out today with 5 dedicated professional chainsaw workers,   a tractor and brush hog, a stump grinder, a dumb truck, a skid, a chipper, and 18 laborers who were pulling debris to the mulcher and stacking wood.  Messengers has donated thousands of dollars to this project and their crew worked really hard today.  This crew came in today and cleaned house and put us  much closer to getting the deforester back in to concentrate on grinding out stumps instead of cleaning and clearing anymore.  So if you live in Kansas/Missouri(near Kansas border) and have a lawn care provider, please consider Messengers for your lawn care needs.   Please support Messengers, Gail the owner, will not disappoint.  Messengers is responsible for making disc golf better in KC and  Fox Hill will not disappoint. 

Projected opening date will be May 2012.

Discs Unlimited for discounted DB5 baskets
