No cost.  This event is a way for kids to sign up for different team and individual sports in Eastern Jackson County.  Plus there are non traditional groups like us out there promoting our activities.  Usually some fun demos to watch as well.  In the past different mascots ie Chiefs, T-Bones, Mavericks make it out as well.  If you are free, bring out the ringer and he can compete in some putting contests against kids his age for discs.  Every kid that comes by our booth leaves with a magazine  and hopefully had some fun throwing some plastic at the basket.

Adams Pointe Conference Center
1400 Northeast Coronado Drive, Blue Springs, MO 64014

The KCFDC invites folks of all ages to the Blue Springs Youth Sports and Rec Expo, on January 25th from 9am to 1:00pm in Blue Springs at the Adams Point Conference Center.  The KCFDC will be represented by having a booth.  Joe Hammontree, myself and others will be out representing the KCFDC.  Our  booth is in the hallway that everyone must pass through to enter the Expo so we have prime real estate. This is a great spot for  our putting contests, demos, baskets, disc games etc.  Thanks to the club and DD for donating  some discs and a bag as prizes for putting contests.  Thanks to the  PDGA  as well for donating magazines.

This is late notice, however if you would like to come out and support disc golf and the KCFDC, please come by.


..and all this bs prior to ice bowl at rosie, I will gladly play a different course, if not just to reduce the massive damage to the course from high traffic.

Despite all this fantastic discussion taking place, this is the most important disc golf related statement.  rosie needs a big long break from golfers.

Recently Eric Eastwood has made some traction out in LS  after contacting some other folks.  we sometimes forget how lucky we are to have the support of so many parks departments in KC so when a department is not as accessible as others, we see that as being difficult.

and Recreational is a battle between Danny Troop and Johnny Dinardo. 

Johnny D is the man.  Glad he found the game.  We used to run all over this city playing pick bball any where we could find a game.  I bet he will quickly be moving up.

I was thinking about this over the weekend.  We have a great disc community(ultimate, disc dawgs, disc golf, disc stores) in KC.  There are really solid disc groups that do so many great things.  It is all about the selfless people that make these groups so amazing and we are blessed with so many dedicated folks that give back. 

The issues that we stress over or complain about, really seem to be minor issues compared to what is happening in Detroit.

Big thanks to our sponsors KCFDC, DD, Innova, PDGA and for the super demo from KC Disc Dawgs. 
 Also thanks to Jack Lowe for the tic tac throw baskets and mini course baskets, along with Crazy John Brooks for some signed  custom stamped Frisbees, and Laron Harris for signed MO-Kan posters. 

I saw countless smiles throughout the day from not only kids but their parents as well.  The weather was perfect and i think things ran smoothly for the most part.  We had 40 entries and plenty of things for folks to do. 

Congrats to Ben "Ace Daddy" Dresser who got an ace.  Ben was expecting his dad to pay him the $100 offer that has been on  the table but was throwing from the short pads so it nullified the deal. 

I was hoping for a larger turnout, however, with only 40 entries, everyone that stuck around for the raffle won something and everyone who entered the ROF left with goodies as well.  Thanks again everybody for the donations.

Things are shaping up nicely for this weekend.  Course is getting prepped this week, CTP and Ring of Fire prizes are coming in from our sponsors, and the weather is looking very pleasant with low 70s. 

Big thanks to our sponsors so far... KCFDC, Innnova, PDGA,  Crazy John Brooks, and DD.  It appears that folks will be leaving with really good items for the raffle and other contests. 

Come on out and enjoy a frisbee day while listening to music playing throughout the course, disc golf, disc dawgs, and mini golf.

We have lots of interests from our north land schools and blue springs schools, but hoping to see some familiar faces from our beloved disc golf community.

great to see Steve win it.  DGTV did a great job and it was really fun to watch.  Steve is solid guy and great representative for our sport.  Shout out to Crazy as well.  He was fantastic.

tough to say. Coach Bill has sold 400+ discs at his school.  He started out with Upshot 2s, and on the next couple orders had some drivers added to his order. Several of the local schools buy super light discs from Lightning.  The owner has made some for my school in the 115gram+ which is awesome for kids.  It is really awesome watching kids for the first time out throwing that super light plastic.  really makes a huge difference.

Here is a little history of Fox Hill disc golf and the doubles event.  Fox Hill's first PE teacher was Coach Duane Hall.  He started up a disc golf double tournament 22 years, back in 1991.  Coach Hall brought the event to Fox Hill from his former school, so the exact number of years is not known at this point.  Every year the event has raised funds for United Way.  The event has always cost $10 with all proceeds going to United Way.  It is believed that this event has raised between $5,000-$8,000 dollars over the last 22 years.  Coach Hall used the resources that he had available in supply closet, like so many PE teachers.  He made targets using cones, hula hoops, and homemade PVC flagsticks. 

Enter Coach Bill Lentz in  1995.  Bill picked up the tradition and continued to promote disc sports, disc golf, and ran the doubles event.  Folks have attended this event over the years to spend quality family time together, get some exercise, and raise funds for United Way.  Players did not complain about the types of baskets, the players pack, or the course set up.  They were simply out to have fun and huck some plastic.

Bill and I have been friends since we met at the Missouri Cupstacking Championship 11 years ago and he contacted me several years back about getting a disc golf course.  When we walked the land for the first time, I did not want to tell him how expensive it was going to be to clear all that land, grade it, seed it, spray it etc, but he remained optimistic.  Several years later, much to my amazement, Bill made Fox Hill a reality.  With thousand of dollars donated, thousands in machinery hours donated, thousand in time given by Messengers lawn care workers, Eagle Scout projects planned and finished, KCFDC work days,  Steve Dresser  running his skid, we now have  a real course to continue the legacy of Coach Duane Hall's doubles event.

Fox Hill Doubles will now be held for the 23rd year and Kansas City will be getting a quality Juniors event that will coincide with the longest running doubles event in Kansas City.  Don't miss out....... come out and join us for a fun filled family day of disc sports at the Kansas City Juniors Open on Oct 12th.
