--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The KCFDC invites folks of all ages to the Blue Springs Youth Sports and Rec Expo, on January 26th from 9am to 1:00pm in Blue Springs.  The KCFDC will be represented by having a booth.  Dave Valdiviez, myself and others will be out representing the KCFDC.  Our  booth is in the hallway that everyone must pass through to enter the Expo so we have prime real estate. This is a great spot for  our putting contests, demos, baskets, disc games etc.  If anyone would like to donate some olders discs that are too light or ones you just do not like or want, that would be great. 

This is late notice, however if you would like to come out and support disc golf and the KCFDC, please come by.

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

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. 

Brandon Elkins 55

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.
