Cliff Drive / Re: Tee Pads
« on: May 30, 2008, 03:29:07 PM »
I found that pickaxes work very well when digging out pads.    Of course shovels are great, but you can really level them off and tear through compacted  soil with the pickaxe.  let me know when the fun begins and i will bring mine.  I am looking for some projects this summer to keep me busy.  A couple of those heavy duty pickaxes can make a job much easier.

Dirk, i would be glad to help you eradicate some the ivy at SMP.  There is so much out there.  i played it on Sunday and was becoming very frustrated.  It is freaking everywhere.  By the end of the summer if nothing gets done, it is going to be very mature.  If you can get some spray, i will start hitting it up this summer when i am off.   i will be glad to do it, especially since it is the closest course to where i live know.  If anyone lives near there and is interested, we can hit up together.

« on: May 17, 2008, 06:49:11 PM »
To all of those that volunteered today or helped get things ready, i would like to say thanks for making it the best disc golf day yet.  The extra discs activities were  a lot of fun and the food and adult beverages were excellent.  This is such a  great event.  I am glad i did not miss it.

Tournaments / Re: JUNIORS TOURNAMENT at William Yates on MAY 10th
« on: May 05, 2008, 01:06:31 PM »
I would like to thank Mike Keizer and his friends Jeremy and Dave, for volunteering their time and energy to William Yates this weekend.  We dropped in another small bridge and picked up some debris and the course is looking good for this weekends GRIP and RIP Juniors Event. 

Come on out this Saturday, May 10th and introduce someone new the game, young or old. Pair up and play doubles and teach the game to someone new.  Yates is the perfect place for beginners of all ages.  The cost is only five dollars and you get the appropriate weighted 120 gram disc for begginers.  Certificates for top 10 in each division and all junior players will walk away with a raffle prize.

A disc golf event that focuses on "Whoever has the most fun wins!".

General Banter / Re: New Disc Golf Course in Blue Springs? Young Park
« on: April 16, 2008, 12:08:08 PM »
I work with Brandon (Blue Springs School District)  and have consulted with him on the project. I have met with others on the project to give them some insight about the sport.  We have walked the land and put together some basic hole designs.  Nothing permanent, just something to show that we have a plan.  I would plan on playing other new courses like Lee's Summit or William Yates before you get your hopes up any time soon.  Young park is a long way away from installation.

General Banter / Benches at WYCO
« on: March 25, 2008, 12:31:08 PM »
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!

Thanks,
John Theiss

Let me know Jack, I am in.  Keizer, since you are offering your truck maybe sometime I can get you to help me grab a set of grouped RR ties in Blue Springs and pick it up.   Then we would have to drop it at Yates for hole # 13.  I rebuilt the stairs last weekend when i saw you and that is one of the last major things that i need help with.

I like the idea of using Yates, but  it would have to be okayed by the district.  You can lenghten some of the holes by playing alternative pads and on a couple holes we could move the baskets further. 

We had 102 players (plus extra parents walking) on the course for our first tourney and it worked out okay.

Bag Tags / Re: 2008- What number ya got?
« on: February 14, 2008, 04:38:25 PM »
I second that discglover.  I hear people saying that they do not care about tags and it makes sense.  After awhile the same numbers just keep getting passed amonst players and then the folks become less interested.  It is a great fundraiser for the club but we need to keeps the tags circulating in and out of certain groups.
