So 3echo9, are you a collector, a player, or both?

the RR ties were mostly junk and had already been promised to someone else.  If you want RR ties you can either purchase them, and they have two types, or get a permit from the railroad.  I got 70 ties donated from the railroad and it took forever to dig through them and find good ones.  I have also purcahsed several from Sutherlands and they deliver.  Going throught Sutherlands is the way to go.

Wow, i can not believe that Yates is in the middle of the pack and beating some great courses.  That makes me very excited to see my baby getting some props.

Michigan Jeff, i was recently in upstate New York and i saw another Michigan Jeff on CNY website and was wondering if it was you.  When you came to KC i played a round with you at Rosedale.   I thought that would be a crazy thing if i bumped into you some where upstate.

Nice work guys.  It is good to hear that some folks are taking the initative to do some projects on their own.  I know that I can count on you two whenever i need some help at Yates.

There are plenty of places to play in KC.  We need to focusing on branching out into the suburbs.  We should be looking for areas that are more to the North and East.  It seems that the South is loaded with WYCO, Olathe, SM, Rosedale, and  possibly courses in Lenexa and Quivira.  I would really like to see the Jackson County P&R get on board and get a proposal for a course out at Lake Jacoma/Blue Springs Lake.  That land is really sweet and the possibilities are endless.  I know a women named Michelle Newman, one of the directors of Jackson County P&R.  She was very responsive when we sat down and talked about disc golf last year, but her major concern was a shrinking budget.  I mentioned to her that our club would be there to assist in any way possible and she liked the idea.  I told here that our club could do the same thing done at Landyle Park in Independence, where local mountain bikers came in and designed really nice mountain bike trails with varying degrees of difficulty, green, blues and blacks.   The mountain bikers came in and impelmented their design and she agreed that the P&R would appreciate our input and design ideas.   I think after World's in 09, once we have built up our club's funds we need to stronly examine what are the possibilities in Lake Jacoma.  If there are no possibilities, then as a club we need to be patient but persistent, just like with the process of SMP.  Michelle was open to the idea of us presenting at a meeting, and next year after World's, we should have plenty of good information to make an outsanding presentation.

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.

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!".
