Blue Valley / Blue Valley Round Saturday?
« on: April 05, 2011, 04:22:30 PM »
Going to be  a nice weekend to get out and play BV.

Will not be too hot like the last time Jay Cram and myself tried to play in upper 90's  with high humidity.  Jay thought he was going to tough it out and walk around without a shirt and no hat.  Pretty soon he was all delusional suffering probably from heat exhausting.   he started babbling and  i knew we needed to get to some shade. 

Danger, you in?  Who is in?

Young Park - Blue Springs / Basket Height adjustment
« on: April 02, 2011, 09:22:53 PM »
We are here to please the complainers ;D and Eric and myself worked hard today adjusting 13 baskets to the PDGA 82cm + or - 6cm standards.  We moved the baskets to both pin positions in order to find the most appropriate adjustment.  So after measuring the basket on the high and low side we pulled the basket, then carried the basket to the alternative pin and measured it, and then for most baskets we moved them back to the first placement.  So after 20+ trips we had enough and called it a day.

The other 5 baskets will be completed by league this Wednesday.  Now there should be no complaints about putting on low baskets and you have no one to blame but yourself for you poor putting ;D


Also, thanks to Jay Cram for emptying trash cans with out liners, drilling holes in the trash cans, putting plastic  bags in them and pulling trash bags out.  

Hope to see you at league this Wednesday.

Pleasant Hill / p hill work day in near future
« on: March 24, 2011, 10:36:41 AM »
Lance has a wish list for P Hill and some it has been delivered.  There is much work to be done.  There are several big things in the works  including wood holes, tee work, and pin installation.  Since he does not post often, i am letting folks know to be looking out for the future work days.  He is hoping to get a work day going in the next couple weeks. 

Lance will get the info out as soon as he knows more.

Since the KCFDC is becoming a 501-3C, it is imperative to increase our community involvement and we need additional volunteer work besides manual labor for work days.  We have a great opportunity to promote awareness to our sport and to our club on Jan 22nd and Jan 29th.  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.  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 asked by both cities to have a booth at their youth sports expos.  We need some folks to volunteer.  This is a really simple chance to give back.  This the second time for us in Blue Springs and i believe this will be the first at the expo in Independence.  Independence would be an ideal location for a course, especially since their rival cities/parks depts BS and LS currently have courses.  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 (man i sound like Jack ;D).

The first youth sports expo  will be held in Independence.
Saturday January 22, 1-4 pm
Truman Memorial Building
 416 West Maple, Independence

The second event will be held in Blue Springs.
Saturday January 29th, 9am-1pm
Adams Point Conference Center
1500 NE Coronado Drive


In addition, we would like to have the kids take part in a disc activity like putting.  Last year we had some discs to give away to our various age division winners.  Plus BS donated frisbees and we handed them out as folks stopped by our booth.  If you have any plastic that you were thinking about trading, or it is collecting dust, or is too light, we would love to have it.   Last year we also tried to set up a tv and wii so if anyone has any cool ideas let's hear em!

PM if you are able to help us out. 

Thanks,
John

Found and Lost / TImko green DD disc
« on: December 29, 2010, 01:11:38 PM »
Timko, i hope that you appreciate my daring rescue of your disc at Young park.   I carefully/foolishly went out onto the ice and rescued your disc.  It was partly frozen into the ice but i managed to get it out.  Having the ponds frozen over sure makes you go for it on 7 and 10, especially 10.  I love throwing that hole with the ice becuase you can go wide left or straight at it over the ice.

Young Park - Blue Springs / Shelter
« on: November 11, 2010, 10:32:19 AM »
Young park disc golf course will soon have a new shelter built near hole one.   The pad was poured this past week and it appears that they will have the roof done pretty soon.  In addition, the parks dept has reseeded empty spots on the course.  Plus they continued to mow in tighter in some wooded areas and are opening up some areas nicely for their last mow of the season.

Tournaments / ACE RACE Pay Pal removed-27 holes of golf
« on: October 19, 2010, 09:19:41 PM »
The Pay Pal button has been removed because we are close to being full with 65 players.  You might still be able to get in if you contact Eric and get him your money quickly.

We are gearing up for Saturday.  We have decided to add extra holes and have 26-27 total holes of golf.  There is  a nice mix of easy short shots and really fun shots that are Aceable for all skills.  We also wanted to make sure folks did not have to leave between rounds for lunch so  I am grilling up food and putting together a lunch with burger or brat, chips, fruit snack and  soda pop.  We are asking for a $5 donation for lunch, which will go to cover the costs of the adult beverages BL  on site for your pleasure.  All proceeds raised from the tournament are going to be given back to the course for future improvements like benches. 

54 holes of golf, sweet players pack, fun activities between rounds, food and beverages, all happening this weekend at Young Park!

General Banter / Disc Golf Intramural BSSHS
« on: September 29, 2010, 01:13:53 PM »
Disc Golf will soon be an official school club at Blue Springs South HS.  The AD has given permission to move forward.  We will soon be working on our mission statement and getting our paper work finalized.  I will be the club's school sponsor and we will meet at Young Park.

This is a big moment for disc golf in EJC.  We have infiltrated that elementary schools, but now we are treading new waters. 

I can see at Blue Valley vs Blue Springs intramural tournament in the future.  The MO-KAN Disc Shoot Out.
Blue Valley has a course near their school and i would imagine that a club will form at some point.

Young Park - Blue Springs / Young mowed
« on: July 14, 2010, 03:35:58 PM »
Young was just mowed.  They try to mow it once a week, usually on Tuesday so it is looking good for league.

I met up with the P&R yesterday and they took care of some mowing concerns on 6 and 10 on the dam.  Top notch service at BS.  I called and the supervisor came out that day with his crew and took care of the concerns.   :)
