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.

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

Young Park - Blue Springs / Re: Hole 17 - barricade wood pile
« on: November 30, 2014, 01:52:48 pm »
I like the idea but the barricade would make more sense to be a rock or wood terrace wall ie the wall at Swope #1 (if it is still there?).

With a slanted green that slopes with water at the bottom, that hole is an ace run and when you go long you have the possibility of missing and rolling down the hill into the water  on your putt.  So... building a barricade up that stops those rollers/hard fly bys just does not seem like the best type of wall.  I like the idea of preventing skip ups and rock or wood wall would stop the discs or even cause them to ricochet  and maybe go into the water.  So... good effort  in building the wall, but the concept is flawed.  Plus a rock or RR tie wall would look so much cooler.

Young Park - Blue Springs / Hole 17 - barricade wood pile
« on: November 28, 2014, 08:47:37 pm »
Out to play some golf this weekend and there was a recent addition on hole 17.  There is a stack of logs/limbs/brush in front of basket about 25ft away, 4 feet wide, and 40 ft long.  Just curious who had the energy to build this or if anyone knows of the folks that did?

Thanks,

John

General Banter / Re: Disc Vending Machine
« on: November 22, 2014, 05:37:27 pm »
I suggested a Teeboxx for Bad Rock Creek.  The idea is great and I do not see it interfering with profits at local stores as a major issue.  In multi-use parks, folks have immediate access to try out something  new.  Plus in talking with Aaron, the machines will likely be retrofitted for other activities....so BRC could put bike tubes in there for the riders that blow out a tire, CO2 for tires, and dog toys for the dog park users.

If you drive new players to the sport, you are going to have them eventually purchasing plastic from the local retail stores.  So essentially these machines could help grow the game at the right parks that have lots of traffic like Stocksdale. 

The folks on this site likely will not purchase a disc from a vending machine, but in a jam you might need to if you forget a disc and you are playing league or an event.    I hope we can get one at BRC and give park users the opportunity to play with a real disc.

Thank you Doug, Steve Dresser and others for your service. 

I love the quote that says

"If you can read English thank a teacher.  If you can speak English, thank a Veteran. "

What other disc golfers can we add to this list?

Ted does a lot of behind the scenes work.  There are so many folks not even on this forum that do the little things like picking up trash and it is nice to hear of folks taking ownership of parks.  Ladell Thomason picked up a whole bag of trash during a round.  Good deeds can be  contagious.

Thanks Teddy.
