Young Park - Blue Springs / 6-22-11 league
« on: June 23, 2011, 08:25:30 AM »
12 open players
11 adv

New players to league last night:
Peirson-high school kid BS
Matt Fox
Anothy Brusnberg
Tom Butler
Casey Fluty-from Wichita
Kevin Corbet

Perfect night for golf.  Course is set tough in most of  the tournament designed placements. Most scores reflected the par 58.  However, there were some super hot rounds.  Slim tour it up with a 51, Hefner a 56, and Gary Lewis playing great with a 57 (had two boogies) hanging in there with the young overhand guns.   Tom V took adv with  64, BP  a 66, Bill The TD Shinoski 68. 

James Cram flicked hole 10 in the straight gap and water skipped it across-killer!  Casey Flutey nailed a 90 footer in the thick  rough on 18 to end the round.  Didn't hear of any great shots but with thumber boys, but you know there were some sick shots to shot under par.  Birdie holes for us mortal throwers-# 3L, 5L, 6Hill, 8, 11Straight,14straight, 16l,  17S.  Birdie holes for the thumber players-(most of the previous holes listed plus)  #2 long, 7 L, 9to the R, 12 L.

Tournaments / Eastern Front- June 25th Young Park and Pleasant Hill
« on: June 08, 2011, 03:20:15 PM »
The Eastern Front is expanding to two courses and will be using not only Young Park, but also Pleasant Hill.  Both courses are located just off 7 Hwy and only 20 minutes apart.  If you have never played in an event, this will be a great opportunity to start.  The Eastern Front is focused on getting new players out,  having fun, casual but competitive golf, affordability, sweet players packs with dinner provided after the second round,unofficial glow round, and camping.  The players pack will include a dri-fit event shirt, dinner after the second round, and three glow lights for a random draw dubs glow later in the evening. The Glow Round will kick off after dinner  once cash and prizes have been redeemed.

Young Park will be utilizing its various tee pads for different divisions.  The course will be set long and Pros will be teeing  off on all long pads testing their pro's skills, the Advanced divisions will use a few shorter pads, and the Recretional division will use more short pads.  Pleasant Hill will have some OB string lines, an island hole, and some longer pads for the pro's.  Advanced players will use some of the alterations while the Rec Division will play the normal course without the changes.  
The is the second year of  the Eastern Front.  I wanted to expand to Pleasant Hill to offer folks the opportunity to stick around after the players party meal, play some glow, and even camp out.  Pleasant Hill is a beautiful spot to play and camp.  Players will get a balanced day of golf being tested at Young on accuracy, risk reward holes, miracle shots and saves, and then get to open it up at Pleasant Hill throwing bombs, being tested by the wind, and throwing many ace runs.

First Round Starts at 10:00am at Young Park
Second Round starts around 2:30-3:00 at Pleasant Hil

Tournament fees

Pro          $40-receive dinner only-cash prizes    
Adv         $25-full players pack-KCFDC funny money or disc for prizes
Rec          $20- full players pack and trophy only for winners  
*(players pack has a value of more than the rec fee thus trophy only for 1st,2nd,3rd)              

Registration will be online using Pay Pal as the only way to register.  You do not need a Pay Pal account, only some sort of debit or credit card.     The event flyer should be up some time this week.  If you have any questions email me at  or reply online.  Camping fees are not included in enty fee-$5 cash to camp. TD has the right to make any necessary changes to format, divisions, players pack, and payouts as needed to ensure a successful event.

Tournaments / Scores-BACA Hitting the Chains, June 4th Young Park
« on: June 04, 2011, 06:22:38 PM »
In case you did not hear about the event, you got to hear how well this tournament was run. 
-First of all, i believe every hole was sponsored.  That in itself is a feat to go out find that many sponsors and hats off to Tom Henderson for the leg work there. 
-Second, the players pack was spectacular: shirt, disc, mini, bbq lunch(top shelf with great sides, fruit, deserts, soda), and a coozie.     
-Third, there were CTP during the round for a disc which is always fun. 
-Fourth, there were raffle prizes(everyone entered for free) including 2 Race tickets for tomorrows race at Kansas Speedway valued at over $400,  discs, disc shirts, disc hats, etc. 
-Fifth, there were trophies for each division-1st, 2nd, and 3rd which is sweet!   
-Sixth, there were travel baskets for each division as a ctp prize.  And the overall closest winner got  a metal innova sport basket.  Redonkulous!  Are you kidding me? 

This event was sick.  Top notch all the way.  Tom and his wife  have never ran an event, but  you would have never ever known becuase it was flawless.  They also had some great help from their friends from South Carolina who came up and assited, along with family members, and members of their bbq competition team.   Fantastic job everyone and thanks for a really fun day. They raised money for a great cause and they went first class all the way.  We kept telling one another how cool this event was and how great it was organized.  It is nice to see some new faces stepping up and running events and getting involved in such a great disc golf scene.

We played some casual doubles due to low numbers.  I do not have the other score card so can't post scores.  Gary Lewis and Sean Chancellor won with a 52.   Myself and Tommy V blew the tie on hole 18 carding a 5 and ended up at 54.  Tom almost aced hole 6 to the left and hit bounced out. 

Couple new players came out to Young despite the poor weather.   Zack Salazar and Kevin Weiss were first timers to league.  I do not know the other scores.

Found and Lost / lost discs at young are being rescued
« on: June 01, 2011, 12:05:24 PM »
If you lose a disc at Young you might be able to get it back.  There is a younger guy named Jake that gets them out of the pond.  He asks for a couple bucks i believe if your name is on them or he is sells them for $5 a piece if you are looking for some used plastic.  Come out to league tonight and look through his stash.  He is pulling out handfuls at a time and has some good stuff.  He plays league every once in awhile or hangs out after league.

  I told him that i was unofficially naming his new business enterprise  "BS Discs".  Does the name and story sound  similar to another local group ? ;D

League is canceled tonight.  80% chance of thunderstorms and some severe.  No need to play in lightning. 

Pleasant Hill / posion ivy spraying party after league
« on: May 23, 2011, 09:41:19 PM »
posion ivy needs to be addressed at p hill.  We need to get ivy spraying parties like i had at young last year.  Maybe after league we can get folks to  give up one hour of their time.  if we get five people you could have it all sprayed down in no time and even all of the wood holes.  those wood holes need to be sprayed first and then mowed for best long term results.

Young Park - Blue Springs / spraying for ivy-may 21 10 am
« on: May 21, 2011, 08:59:20 AM »
last minute notice, however for some reason i just realized that i finally have a free and open day.   Young needs to be sprayed badly.  

i will be there from 10am on to about 2pm

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.

Young Park - Blue Springs / No offical KCFDC league tonight-3-30-11

Shaka Smart next MU coach?   unbelievable win and what a great story for all the nay sayers thinking that CU got the shaft. 

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.
