Young Park - Blue Springs / Re: where exactly
« on: June 23, 2010, 01:04:54 pm »
When you get to AA road and Adams Dairy look to your left.  The park is on the left hand side(East).  When you see a big school on your left you need to turn left.  Then take you next immediate left (25 feet after you have just turned off of Adams Dairy) and go past the Bball court, past Vball courts, past shelter and continue behind the softball fields.  Look for the wood chip trail  on your left.  there are a couple signs that will tell you where to start.

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. 
creed@bluespringsgov.com

Thanks,
John

Young park is eating me up.   I lost my favorite approach disc, a yellow Classic Pro ROC and a great flippy White Wraith-167.

i have lost four discs between the two ponds in a couple weeks.

i lost a red DISC GOLF DAY putter on that hole.  looks like you pulled out every type of possible disc but puttters.  i believe the star mako is Rand's. 

You interested in doing some diving work on the other pond?  I have lost two out there already going for it.  i bet that is another jack pot.

Legacy Park - Lee's Summit / Re: Legacy League 5/28

I think you'd be surprised how many golfers live in the suburbs on the eastern side of the city.

one of the biggest, if not the biggest arm in KC, Jake Bowen lives in the LS burbs.  he needs to come out of retirement.

Give BS a few years.  Young is right next to a high school.  i have already seen a ton of high school kids playing.  they will be using the course next year during PE. They have an hour and a half for pe so they will get plenty of practice.   once that happens, you will see an explosion of youth to our sport.  i am anticipating the number of course rounds per week to increase greatly next year and eventually be close to Rosie in 3-4 years.

My dad was the fixing the sign.  he loves fixing stuff.  he is the guy that pulls stuff out of the trash and takes it home and fixes it. drives my mom crazy.   he is always giving away lawn mowers, weed eaters, vacuum cleaners, microwaves etc.  i destroyed my chainsaw putting the course in and he completely took it apart and replaced darn near everything.

those two trees mentioned are some of the best hard wood trees in missouri.   you try not to build holes around trees that could die in the next decade. If you got a tree that makes a hole, but then dies, now the hole has completely changed.  For example hole 2 ROsie and so many at swope.   you design around hardwood trees becuase they can take a beating over and over and over when they are not as mature.    it does stink when you hit one and a thorn goes into your disc.

Thanks for  the nice comments folks, however it was a team effort like Caleb said.  i have a group of folks that i know that i can count on. They do more than just post, they work.  They were dependable, unselfish, and happy to give back.  That is what makes the KCFDC so valuable.  We can organize quickly and accomplish great things.  i do not care about the attention, i care about tax dollars not being wasted. Mike was absolutely correct when he said this course will be here forever. I was concerned by a local P&R who were not as willing to listen and be as patient as the BSPR.  And as a result, i feel that the way this course was routed, was negligent of the best land features.  I do not walk around proclaiming to be a pro course desinger,i certainly have a great deal more to learn,  but i have learned a great deal on several different projects and i consulted with many folks from the club.  The routing for Young was discussed with several folks, and the KCFDC was extremely helpful and valuable in this whole process.

Caleb is correct about thanking everyone.  I have thanked all the those that have helped in other threads and am very appreciative of their volunteerism.   This course looked fantastic on opening weekend because of their hard work.  I would have been nice to have thanked some other folks that posts here so often, but they were not available to help.  There will be more work days in the future, so if you missed out, there will be more chances for you to give back.  BSPR mentioned they wanted to open the course up in some areas so  there will be opportunities to give back.  Our courses are great in KC becuase of  generous volunteerism of the KCFDC and local golfers, so once again thanks to the best disc golf club in the US.

i suggested something similiar at the EC meeting.   i would like to see all the juniors courses, whether 18 or 9 be listed together.

like i have said many times, BSPR do it right.  i would like to see them bring in a truck with tank sprayers and just spray the whole park down.  I remember them mentioning that it was too wet at one point to bring in trucks.  Bring in hydromulch is an impressive move, especially since we already had the grand opening and they could turn their attention else where.

They are committed and they will get this course looking fantastic.  Grant it, they do not have 270 parks to maintain,but Young will continue to look better and better as time goes on.  They really are a model parks dept.
