That was a fantastic ICE BOWL and it seems that the two day event was a big success.  Thanks to everyone that volunteered.

i liked the name flying saucer brew but it is a restaurant chain.  or something like Pluto Oldam has a cool ring and you tie in your name and the pluto platter disc golf element.


now we get some sort of royalties for our creativity right?  Like unlimited beer when you go big!

Judging from last years family and youth attendance at the expo, we could probably use a couple other folks at our KCFDC booth.  I have to leave one hour early to go coach so i want to make sure we have enough help.

It is a good chance to get new folks out and this people are at least willing to listen.  Not like trying to convince your  friend to play that thinks your hobby/addiction sounds crazy.

We a had a great time and thanks to those that came out.

CD
Doug Kroll
Tom Verstrate
Anothy Brunsberg
Bill Shinoski
Vince Como

We had a great spot and we definately had/were the most fun.  Drew also hooked us up with his basket and flat screen which was playing  World Championships DVDs.

Next Saturday  we will be in Blue Springs from 9-1.

I appreciate the offer and you are more than welcome to bring your basket Doug.   I think Tom V is bringing a fold up, i am bringing one of Drew's Mach something, and i will have a fold up in my car.

 Wrongfuleag, We could always use help.  We have around 3 for sure volunteers so if you want to come please do. 

Please bring extra putters for the putting contest. 

Thanks,
John

Not going to turn down a  good volunteer. I just called the P&R and yes it is still on.

Great quotes from CD Steiner in corresponding about the Indep Sports Expo.

#1  "I didn't know what sort of setup you garnered for us? We'll be kicking the basketball freethrow contest's collective butt!! Thanks for jumping on this!"

#2 "Can we sell or raffle ... to raise money for Indep P&R or KCFDC? Or my retirement?"

#3  "I have bunches of t-shirts in my closet that need a new home - many are like-new. Size doesn't   matter, but most will fit the regular-sized kids"

Which one is best?

Those attending Ice Bowl have likely already contributed to the charity by purchasing a package. I see nothing wrong with trading plastic at Ice Bowl, and doubt anyone is going to be excited about getting used discs as a CTP prize.

Not arguing about trading plastic at the ice bowl, just wanting to have some swag to give away to some kids.  Nothing different than what so many of us do already when we take out your beginner friends to play the first time.

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. 

Thanks,
John

That is a great idea Sean.  I would like to take that idea and go a little further.  The KCFDC has a booth at two youth sports expos Jan 22 and 29.  How about  donating some plastic to that for giveaways for putting contests?   I know people have stuff they do not want.  Even if it is to heavy it would be cool for kids to walk out and have something in their hands.

Someone either fished it out or it miraculously floated up when the ice was freezing. 

Isn't it great when you get a lost and forgotten friend back?

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.

We choked.

But the same thing will happen to KU in bball.  They will be favored and have a high seed tourney time and they will have a similar result during March Madness.

I agree with you Dick and it might be a bad risk with the weather.  However, it has been a mild winter so far. 

Smithville and the future Blue Valley are looking to be great future sites.   ;D   Three courses  would make this so much easier for you Jack  ; :D 

Regardless of my dicey ideas,i will be there to help you Jack
