Got my first witnessed Ace at Swope league last night.  It was hole #17 in the right side placement with my pink Wraith.

Way to go.  What was the payout, something around $290?

Centennial Park - Lawrence, KS / Re: work?

Harold and I went to Lawrence League last night.  Had a record 37 people show up.  First time I played league in Lawrence in over 2 years.  Asked the coordinator about payouts and he did actually have a payout table.

Also asked about all the work being done around the course.  Apparently is was requested by the police to the city so they can have better sight lines into the park and the skate area.  Apparently there has been two violent crimes with weapons in the recent past.  I have heard nothing about it.  I guess it was related to a skate tournament of some sort.

As of 9:00 AM Friday, 4/11/14, there were 2 trash cans on the whole course.  A permanent metal one on hole 3.  And a white plastic 55-gal one on hole 5. 

I think larger than life signs would help.  The tiny little 8.5 x 11" signs I saw on Cliff Drive proper when I was tooling around at 8:30 AM hardly brought attention.  I think 2' x 3' signs every 100' along Reservoir Drive would bring some attention. 

Harold gave us trash bags to clean as went Friday.  Picking up a bottle here and there doesn't make a dent when there are 5-6 BAG FULLS of trash dumped at one location. 

I'll pick up bottles when I see steps being made to stop people from dumping.  This is my question: What is being done to stop people from dumping BAG FULLS of trash in the park?

Let's work smarter, not harder. 

Why did I start this thread?  I'm not sure.  I really do like Cliff Drive DGC.  It's one of my favorit in KC metro.  It makes me pissed when I see parks trashed that way.  It also make me pissed when I see a call to arms for work days when people are dumping trash faster then we can pick it up.  We are trying to stop a torrent overflow with a bunch of toothpicks.

So, what's going to be done about it?

First solution seems to be a simpe one by replacing the cans that are no longer there.

Second solution seems to be feasible.  Asking the city to post signs about ordinances should not be that difficult.  If it is, why would the club even bother having any clean up days if the city isn't willing to post signs.

Third solution is a bit of a stretch, and could possibly encourge people to bring their trash to the park.  But the dumping is way the @#$ out of hand.

Cliff Drive / Trash abatement
« on: April 14, 2014, 10:26:08 PM »
At Cliff Dr last weekend I saw two trash cans. One on hole 3, other on hole 5. I know I'm asking a huge request when I expect people to actually put their trash in a can, but when the course doesn't even have cans, where will an irresponsible person put their trash? Carry in carry out won't work when local residents carry in bag fulls of trash to dump along the road.

Seriously, what can be done to curb the trash at Cliff? It's disgusting. And no I'm not interested in cleaning a park 45 miles from me when residents 4,500 feet from the park use it as a landfill.

I don't like to b%tch unless I have some suggestions, so here it goes:

Put cans on every hole. Lot easier to put bottles in a can when there is a can.

Put signs along the road (bigger then the 8x11 signs on Cliff Dr) that inform of the illegal dumping consequences. I'm serious. Ask the city to have metal signs that are 2 feet by 3 feet with huge letters that say illegal dumping will cost you $X fine. Make it abnoxiously visible. I'd rather see the signs then another bag of household trash dumped along the road.

OK - here's the controversial suggestion. If locals are going to dump......let's provide them a dumpster. We provide clean needles to addicts. Let's provide an empty dumpster to dumpers.

Am I crazy?

If the divisions potentially play different courses, how will that affect the point series?

Anybody else notice all the work being done at Centennial lately?  Who's been doing it, the city or volunteers?
