Come out to WYCO this Saturday morning at 10 am to help install benches.  It would be great to see a group out there knocking it out.  Bring shovels, wheelbarrows, long levels, water jugs for transporting water for concrete , tools etc.


Let's get WYCO looking good!

General Banter / New course-Young Park Blue Springs
« on: November 07, 2007, 12:09:35 PM »
It looks as if things are rollilng in EJC with Yates in the ground and now Pleasant Hill.  It was just announced in the Examiner that Young park has been approved for funding for a future site.  Brandon Martin, a fellow Blue Springs School District empolyee is bucking up and writing a very large grant.  He is very motivated about this project and is looking forward to getting all those interested in helping.  The great thing about this spot is the proximity of the course to the high school.  We will now be able to have elementary and high students  to have direct access to the sport. 

I have been working with Bradon and have met with board members and the site is nice.  There are going to be two small ponds, hopefully some cool water shots.   

Thanks to all that came out to Yates.  We had 105 players.  It was really cool to see that many newbies out playing.  We plan on having another one in the spring if you missed out.

We are having our first juniors tournament at William Yates Elementary, November 3rd.  The tournament is open for all ages.  KCFDC  has thrown in a couple discs for prizes.  I have been in contact with numeruos disc companies seeking donations.  We are asking for donations of any sort... coupons to restaurants, gift cetificates, shirts etc.  The tournament is geared for beginners and families.  For FIVE DOLLARS you get a disc, a lunch, and chances to win raffle prizes. If we can get enough donations then the top cards will prize.  As of now, certificates will be given to the top cards.  Kids love any type of recognition, but prizes would make it that much better.  I realize that this is the same weekend as our club championship, but those of you who are not playing and have younger children, a niece or nephew, you should come out and introduce the game to someone new.  As a physical educator,  I understand how important success correlates to equipment and environment.  Take a new player to course that does not destroy their confidence.  There are alternative pads for the more experienced player.  Yates is 18 holes with tee pads, tee signs, tunnel shots, turnover, uphill, downhill, a creek, and some mandos.  We are sending out registration forms throughout elementary schools in Blue Springs.  We are not allowing walk ups.  If you want to play, you need to fill out a registration form and send it in by Oct 30th.  We do not want to order extra discs and be stuck with them.  We are not trying to line our pockets here folks.  FIVE DOLLARS for a disc, lunch, and raffle prizes.  Spread the word!!!

To get a registation form email me at

jtheiss@bssd.net 

ps Just put in for holes at my school John Nowlin Elementary.  I would like to thank the Cashens for once again stepping up and donating the sleeves, and to Rick who supplied the baskets, and lastly to the Blue Springs maintanence department for digging out the pads and holes, saving me the wear and tear on my body.

General Banter / Blue Springs Work Day Sunday-10:00 AM
« on: September 20, 2006, 10:10:54 AM »
I just got the go ahead for some materials from Home Depot this week.  This  Sunday at 10:00 am, we are going to be installing the steel sleeves and tee sign posts,  moving rail road ties, forming the ties into tee boxes, laying down weed mat  inside the boxes,  and moving rail road crossing ties into place as bridges.  Materials/tools needed: heavy duty staple gun and staples to install the weed mat,  heavy duty scissors to cut the weed mat,  1/2 inch   one foot installer bit and cordless drill/heavy duty drill to completely drill through whole fromt the spikes,  mini/sledge hammers to pound the rebar through the ties into the ground, chainsaw to cut the ties, tools to remove stumps left over form the brushog,  buckets to carry water to the holes for mixing concrete.  My father is bringing his heavy duty gas generator to run the drills so if you have a 1/2 wide one foot long installer bit and drill please bring it.

If anyone has a dual axle trailor and truck I have more ties and limestone that I need to pick up this week.  Please let me know if you can help with the truck/trailor this week.  IF I get these extra materials, there are some spots that we could lay more ties to prevent erosoin like in the DU.  The limestone would be thrown in a water shed creek/run off and  hopeful preserve the efforts that were made earlier this summer when we ran the bobcat through that area.  

If we have another big turn out, we could get this course up and running by the first of October.   The Chiefs are off this Sunday so it is a great chance for you to come out and support your sport.

Call me if you have any questions, 816 739-9361

Thanks, John Theiss

General Banter / New course in Blue Springs-work day this weekend!!!
« on: July 12, 2006, 09:47:08 PM »
My name is John Theiss.  I teach elementary pe and recently wrote a grant and was awarded grant money from SPRINT.  I am building a juniors disc golf course.  We are going to have a work day this Saturday and Sunday, the 14 and 15th.  Dan Cashen is going to be running one of the bobcats that I rented with grant money.  I will have a second bobcat helping on Sunday.  Eleven of the holes are similar to the DU or Cliff.  We need help clearing and cleaning.  We might be building some stairs this weekend.  This is a juniors course but it is still going to be really cool.  Come out and give us a hand.  Writing the grant was the hard part, building the course is the fun part.  We will be there at 9:00 AM Saturday and Sunday.  Once again the Cashen brothers are willing to go out of their way and promote a game we all love.   I would also like to thank Rick Rothstein for helping with the baskets.

Thanks,
John Theiss
