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.   :)

Young Park - Blue Springs / FOX 4 tomorrow at Young
« on: June 15, 2010, 03:17:01 pm »
FOX 4 is doing a story about the course.  The Blue Springs P&R asked if could see if some folks would be out playing tomorrow at 9:30 in the morning.   I know that it is late notice, but the story would go much better if folks were throwing. 

There is a chance that you could be on TV throwing your disc right smack into a tree.  So if you do not mind a chance at being teased incessantly for your errant throw, show up before 9:30 at Young Park.  ;D

Young Park - Blue Springs / Email Blue Springs Park and Rec
« on: June 10, 2010, 01:07:16 pm »
The Parks dept is doing a fantastic job mowing and trimming.  With each mow, they reclaim more and more space.  There is also talk of bringing in a boom sprayer and doing some more much needed broad leaf spray.  They continue to show great effort in keeping the park looking great and making improvements. 

I wanted to give folks the email if they wanted to make some comments. I tell them how great it looks all the time, but they do not need to keep hearing it from me.  If you are interested, please send them a quick email about how appreciative you are for a parks department that mows and takes care of their park.  Please let them know where you live, and if you are a KCFDC member, please include that info as well. They would probably like to know how far some folks are traveling to play their course-Leo ;D

Here is the email.

Thanks,

Tournaments / Eastern Front is FULL.
« on: May 22, 2010, 02:12:57 pm »
We are full.   We will not take any walk ups.  72 is the max. 

There is always next year.  We will expand next year to two courses and use another course in Eastern Jackson County.

If you are unable to make it out for the Eastern Front tourney on May 23rd, here is the opportunity to show some appreciation to a tremendous parks and rec dept.  The Blue Springs Parks and Rec will have an official ribbon cutting event at 10 am on Saturday, May 22nd.   The parks and rec will be handing out free commemorative Buzzzes.  I have nothing but praise for their efforts and once again, they are going above and beyond by having some free plastic for those that come out. One DGA representative responded to me "I have never ever had a parks superintendant that has been so involved and interested in a project.  Roscoe has shown great interests and was extrememly thorough." 

 We hope to have a strong showing of support for a parks dept that has been an advocate for professional course installation.  We want to continue to build upon the great alliances that we have with several surrounding parks departments.   The KCFDC is proud to have an ally like the Blue Springs Parks and Rec, who value and listen to those with experience and knowledge of disc golf.  Please join us in a celebrating the grand opening of one more course, being added to the plethora of great courses in KC. 

The parks dept has mentioned that after the opening weekend, depending on the maturation of the new seed, that there is a possibility for the baskets to be pulled.  They want to ensure that new growth is strong enough to withstand foot traffic.  So.... this is your chance to SHOW YOUR SUPPORT TO A TREMENDOUS PARKS DEPT, GET A  FREE DISC, PLAY A NEW COURSE, AND INTERACT WITH SOME NEW PLAYERS.


Hope to see a  huge group of golfers May 22nd at 10 am.

  The school board has been notified and the assistant superintendant has notified the principal of the school about several problems at Yates.  Neighbors have called the police about these issues.  There has been some talk about pulling the baskets as punishment.  the course will not be pulled at this point, but baskets being pulled is the next step.  I do not care if i piss anyone off with what i have to say. This is my course.  I built it, i raised the funds, i seeked the donations, and i broke my back out there.  If i see you doing these things(drinking, drugs, being loud and obscent) on my course i will call the police on you.  No one is above the rules and laws and i will do everything in my power to protect my baby.  This course was built for kids.  the money was awarded under intentions that kids would be using this course.  all are welcome to play the course when school is out.  I have had  enough of the dumb sh$% out there.  Quit acting like trash and be respectful of your surroundings.  For those of 99.9% of you that are respectable golfers i thank you.

General Banter / Fox Hill-NKC WORK DAY, 6-16-12!!!!
« on: April 10, 2010, 05:47:57 pm »
So the disc golf juniors courses are poping up out East, South, and eventually North.  The track of land at Fox Hill  looks good from an aerial image, but it has some serious water shed trenches.  unfortunately, the main runoff trench runs right down the middle of the land.   And that trench has some very dangerous parts.  After walking and walking and walking this past week, i think i figured out the best route and have 15 holes nailed down. The other three will be part of the shorter holes that the students will loop while playing in class.  The pe teacher wants to have six holes that his students could "loop" and can keep playing and are all visible.   

The grant writing process is under way and i am pushing for the use of the DEFORESTER!   So we are hoping to get that finacial  angle figured out becuase we want to work smarter, not harder.  We are going to need some type of bad boy machinery to go in and clean house because it is very similar to Young park(overgrown forest). 

As we get things on track I will post a work day.  There is no parks dept to depend on,so we will need some help.  This will be another  really fun woods course(two holes are open) with lots of trees.
