Rosedale / Re: Workday Sunday 11-23-08
« on: November 24, 2008, 10:49:50 AM »
This weekend we worked really hard on building some stairs for hole 11 DU.  We stated by moving a giant boulder that most folks probably just walked around on their descent from hole 11.  After we moved the monster, we continued in our quest for  large flat rocks.  We found some beasters and we built some stairs that should last for many years.  I believe Steve (Hostleter?) had moved a bunch of rock and made some stairs and we used many of those stairs and added some larger rocks.  Steve layed out a nice set of smaller rock stairs that we used as platforms for many of the bigger beaster rocks.  Steve has been working very hard DU and is really transforming some holes.  A big thanks must go out to Steve,  Mike Keizer and Eric Kolkmeiyer who did some back breaking work to get those stairs looking so good. 

William Yates Elementary / School rules and expectations
« on: November 21, 2008, 11:13:54 AM »
William Yates Elementary is open to the public after school hours and it has gotten a great deal of play since its insallation.  This course was funded by a $5,000 grant from Sprint to battle obesity. Yates is a great course to take new players of all ages.  The course is a pitch and putt type of course, but it offers great elevation, wooded shots, tunnel shots, mandos, and some alternate pads.  Players need to remember that the 18 hole course is on school grounds and responsible behavior is a must.  All Blue Springs Schools are Alcohol, Tobacco, and Drug free. In addition, the course has several holes that abut houses.  Some neighbors have expressed concerns about the course, but many have openly welcomed the course.  The course has opened up some of the over grown woody areas that were once breeding grounds for illicit behaviors.  However, the school district will not tolerate innappropriate activities and Yates could be pulled if negative issues arise.

If you go out and and play Yates, please help me out and make appropriate choices.  Yates has already introduced many new faces to our sport.  And one of those new faces, Mike Keizer is now a course coordinator at Cliff.  Grab two discs and come out and throw Yates.

Rosedale / Re: Bridges Down Under at Rosie-and steps and erosion control
« on: November 12, 2008, 12:42:07 PM »
In talking with Dick and a couple other fellas last night at our club meeting, we have agreed on a work day DU for Sunday, Nov 23.  Do not let that date stop you if you were planning on working this weekend. 

Dick wants to get the bride on hole 8, and i would like to address some other issues like making some nice rock stairs on holes 10 and 11, and moving some fallen trees for erosion control.

General Banter / Re: Railroad ties (FREE)

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.   


General Banter / Re: Anyone know someone in Buffalo, New York?

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.

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.
