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. 


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!
