Tournaments / Re: 33rd Annual Kansas City Wide Open - June 19-21, 2015
« on: March 17, 2015, 08:10:53 pm »
What does the Am. Players pack consist of ?

Seriously.......?  Can we get the courses done and help in the event before we worry about "what do I get?"  Here is the deal, GBO is all ran by a DG company where you get their stuff.

The Wide Open is ran by volunteers that scrape to get you what we can on the time we have.

Let's help why not ask, "Hey how can I help in getting the players pack more awesome?" instead.....

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!

I will be there to spot.  I scheduled my family vacation around it along with  another hip surgery.  However, folks should have the right to volunteer, play, watch, not give a shat about the event,give a shat about the event,  and ask lots of questions without being called out.  Folks should not be worried about someone guilting them for not volunteering.  I do not understand this thinking.  It just turns folks away from not wanting anything to do with the club.  It is such a great event and keeping things positive  and fun should be our focus as a club.

Thanks for stepping Matt. 

I would hate to compete with WW.  But you do what makes most sense for you.  I think Monday makes better sense.

Park workers knocked a bunch of the list as far as cleaning up brush this week.  We have a couple pins to be installed in near future- 10 to the left in tree line and 16 to the right in tree line.

thanks for the input.   i compiled everyone's emails and sent them over to the park department.  Disc Demon had a very detailed list as well that he PM'd me.  He also mentioned that he had thought he found a park workers disc so maybe Disc Demon can post the name.  I know that a couple of the park guys periodically check the website.

thanks to Nick and Tom and the other park workers for working so hard out there.

I could use some type of disc retriever but the deck seems like a poor idea since park is supposed to be dry.  Hard to sit on a deck and party with out adult beverages.


Funny stuff though about the wooded holes.  You must love some open hole golf?  That Ted guy is one wild and crazy guy.  Is he a temp/seasonal worker?  Or are you talking about Tom who loves to throw old beat up dog chewed on discs? 
.
Hole #1- There needs to be a fence or wall to keep discs from rolling into the pond.
Hole #2-  A large deck needs to be built on the pond, for parties and to save discs

Hole #7- All trees need to be cut down in the fairway
Hole #9-  See hole 7
Hole #12- See hole 7
Hole #15-  Large tubes need to be assembled on each line that will take the disc to the basket. The fork in the road could add to the excitement.
Hole #16- same as 15, but just one easy to assemble tube.

Next time I run into Ted with Liberty parks I will hit him up with a few of these issues.   Ted is a player, I ran into him at Jesse James a month or so back, i think he plays regularly.

Hole 14 you are correct about the wooded overgrowth on left of the tee.  They really do need to be cleaned up some and get some of the overgrowth out to open up some sight lines.  It is a little hard to see if someone is bombing through there.  That is a great point.  Thanks Ben. 

Disc Demon,  i think i met you the other day.  You really a funny guy and that was a fun round.... no matter how many times you threw into the ponds.  I hope we can get out and throw some more holes soon.

Liberty, MO - Stocksdale Park / list of areas/things that need work
« on: March 08, 2015, 08:19:41 pm »
I am making a list to send over to the parks department tomorrow morning.  I would like to get a list of things that folks see that need to be worked on.  I know folks want benches and more trash cans... but i am thinking items for workdays ie  cleaning up brush here or there, pushing back woods in this area etc.

What do you  want to see improved? 

The parks would like a punch list and I have several things, but i want to know what others are seeing that i might be missing.

thanks,

John

We got the reroute done today.  #17 can play in the woods now. 

also lost an yellow eagle(red and gold stamp) on hole 2.  been awhile since i have done an honest days work and trying to snap a disc after manual labor was tough on the forearms.  thought it might skip across.....but no.

what a cool idea.  i would say that you end up at p hill and finish with some glow and camping.  oh my.... how much fun would that be on/near  summer solstice? 

I think you got to finish at P Hill. That would just make for an excellent party and it is a short and easy course to wind down from.  You could play Wilbur before P Hill.  Wilbur has some decent (and sillly short) short pads for an event like this since most folks are going to be dragging by round 4 & 5.

Clay was able to move the date up for trail building to today and we should likely have that sucker knocked out in  a few hours.  we will start at 11 and will meet up in the circle parking lot.  I am excited to learn the official ways to building a trail from the ERTA experts.  Come on out if interested.

super late notice but....it took a little time finalizing details yesterday.

Liberty parks and rec, ERTA and  myself are communicating/working on rerouting the trail near basket #17 basket in the woods  at BRC.  It will be staying in the left pin unfortunately until the trail  gets rerouted further down into the woods.  There was some confusion on the trail usage and it was believed to be a closed trail.  There has been ongoing discussions for rerouting with myself and Clay Lozer, who is the trail steward and member of ERTA.  We hope to get the trail rerouted soon and their is a scheduled work day in near future.  I will post the date when i am notified. 

There are several trails crossings out there, but hole #17 pin in the woods does not give riders or golfers enough sight lines.  Thanks for being patient.  The course is still only a few months old and we are working out some kinks.

Liberty, MO - Stocksdale Park / Re: Who's Playing - When?
« on: December 26, 2014, 01:54:11 pm »
if you are willing to help and volunteer on any course....thank you.

There is plenty to do at Stocksdale.  Find a wooded hole or hole with trees nearby and then gather up debris and pull it deep into the woods where it will never be in the way.  So....you could clean up about every hole out there if you want. 

thanks,
John

Liberty parks and rec texted me today that some crazy dude was swimming yesterday in the pond and today there was "some hippie" on  a large piece of Styrofoam.  Why Stryofoam....well cause carrying a boat that far is way too much work when disc hunting.

Young Park - Blue Springs / Re: New practice basket
« on: December 03, 2014, 04:14:47 pm »
i forgot to add that to my list.  i just contacted parks and rec recently and there is a new guy that i contact now.  my former contact, Bobby Williams passed away last year.  he was a really great man and i had taught both his kids.  he was a man that got things done and you could count on.  the new guy seems very pleasantl and is from lee's summit p&r and seems to be a big proponent of disc and even plays a little. 

There is a list of things they want to get working on over the winter.  i will send him another email about the basket.  they are aware of it. 

thanks,
john
