General Banter / Re: Official PDGA Magazine for 2009

i got the latest issue and thought there was some cool stuff in there.  there is another sport out there that many of the true athletes in disc play and that is ultimate.  For my birthday my mom told me she was getting me a subscription and i was looking forward to it up until all the haters denounced it. :D

i do agree that their coverage was lacking but i still enjoyed reading it.

Prairie Center / Re: Trees! Trees! and more trees!
« on: February 25, 2009, 12:08:59 pm »
i like the white pine.  it is a native tree to missouri and has been heavily logged in many parts of the US.  it grows fast and can get up to 75-80 feet.  i have 9 of them in my back yard at least 40 feet tall and my house is only 16 years old.  when planted i bet they very least 10-15 foot trees, but they grow fast and do rather well in various soils and temps.  i believe that blister rust and one condition affects them, however, they are rather hearty and a really nice looking tree. 

On Sunday mornings we like to drive around and take  scenic roads and we somehow ended up near Legacy.  i am excited to get out there when it opens.   the course looks so much different now that the eight foot tall praire grass has been taken out.  I wonder if they have found any plastic becuase one of those days when we were helping we must of lost 5-10 discs in just a few minutes.  i am very impressed with all the small bridges, benches, and other improvements they have made.

The sad thing is that only a handful of folks out of the thousands of local players visit this website.   And the idiots responsible probably do not take the time to get on the message board.   it would be nice to be able to stop vandals, however, Rosie get more action than a drag queen in the joint.  Yet action/players equal less crime, less vandalism, and less inappropriate activity the used to scare the common folk away from the park.

i just got a message from the parks and rec.  The design and production of the pads is being provided by an industrial arts class  in Blue Springs.  Here is the latest info i received. 

" Our plan is to have some pins in one end that slip into a slot or holes in the opposite end.  There is a concept of placing conduits thru them, then a cable or rod that can be tighten placing tension on the pads"

Sounds interesting and i am anxious to see the design and how it functions.
The pads are for the new course going in at Young Park in Blue Springs.  We are scheduled to start brushogging March 9-13th.  After we get the land somewhat cleared, i will be posting more information about the course and give updates. The parks and rec are fully behind the project and have the funds for the course.  There is a rough timeline in place and they have predicted the course will open this Fall and a pushing forward to make it happen. The course will have two tee pads per hole and two pin placements.

i have some questions for you those of you that are knowledgeable in concrete work.  The process that is being used for the tee pad construction might be somewhat unorothdox, but that sounds like the way it is going to be.  the tee pads are going to be poured into five by five sections off site.  then brought to the site and assemble there.  i am envisioning the pads seperating and tilting.   I am  curious if having a male and female end on each slab might work by keeping them locked together.  I was envisioning four to five heavy duty gage pipes that extended out of one slab and could be pushed into a female slab.  Anyone got an ideas besides sexual innuendos?

Those wood holes are crazy hard.  I really like the hole next to the lake.  i am calling it Lakeside Drive.  You are literally walking the edge of a good size hill lakeside.   it is a hairy hole and is going to be a amazing test for guts.  one bad kick off a tree and you are in the drink.  You can play it safe or go for a  hyzer.  Oh man, those holes are looking great.  I would like to go back out this weekend and haul brush.  Not sure what Lance has going on, but it is going to be a nice weekend. 

Lance i am busy Sat morning.    I could meet you out there around 2:30 on Sat or Sunday morning.  Let me know if you can make it out.   I will try to wrestle up a couple of folks.

Lance give me a call.  i thought you said you were busy.  if plans change let me know.

i believe that the Central New York club has had or has a women president.  It is probably very common for women to be club leaders becuase of their innate organizational skills.   Getting women on the executive board and in leadership roles where they feel some sort of ownership is very powerful.

Man oh man, i lost that disc last winter.  I definately remembering losing that red orc.  it is rather new and i lost it during a snow round.  There was probably 6"to 12" of snow on the ground.  I played jefferson and then went to snow creek to board.  the next time you come to kc for a tourney or to play, please leave that disc either at the tourney or at Disc Golf World.

   I've been pretty busy, classes are over on the 9th of December, after that I will get with Scott George and Dan.  Hopefully during Christmas break we can get started on something. How's the Blue Springs project panning out?

Lance, i have not heard anything yet.  i am not sure if Rick or John have heard anything either.  The gentlemen that wrote the grant is a principal at the freshman center in BS.  He keeps me updated and i have not heard anything in awhile.  I have plenty of time off over xmas break to help out.  I am interested and please keep me informed. 

Legacy Park - Lee's Summit / Re: Course Update - 11/20/08
« on: November 25, 2008, 12:37:51 pm »
It sounds like they are starting to figure some things out, which is great news.  These things take time, and we know that Lee's Summit is fully committed to this project.  Folks just need to continue to be patient and let this course work its way out.  Brian Plamer is the right man for this job and we can trust  his suggestions and judgement.  He has the right vision for this course and he has good experience as a player seening and playing numerous courses.  And the good thing is, if he makes a bad choice, we can trust that his better half will correct him.

Dan, what is the story on carvering out a wood hole?  Have you heard anything from Lance, or is there even anything being planned?
