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

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.
