Cliff Drive / Re: Trash abatement
« on: April 15, 2014, 10:48:24 AM »
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

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?

when I travel I use this:

you can list it by state and edit search, etc.

then read various reviews

Played both the 18 and 9 last Saturday.  Courses were in great shape from the last time I was there 3 years ago.

Glad to see they have concrete tee boxes.  A bit short, but better than grass.

I dont' see this on PDGA's website as being registered.  Am I missing something?

Got a vote for cliff as prep for city of fountains tournament

Joe's Colt45's would fit in well there.

^^^  ;)  Yes, there will be Colt45's, OE 800's, and Fried Catfish for all!

have you had that fried catfish from the gas station on the BLVD immediately south of Cliff and 1-2 blocks west near the college?  I love it.

Whatever you do though, don't bring one of these:

stupid, epic fail on Vibram's part

Just got done playing Atchinson Jackson Park Saturday.  This is the time of year you want to play that park before grass is an issue.

Same for Riverfront Park in Lawrence, Perry Lake, and Pomona Lake.

1. Rob, have you gotten any feedback from the guys who run Wednesday league at Rosedale on if we could co-mingle with them one week?

It seems like there would be enough room for 15 extra players out there.  I just think if we are going to wander around the courses on the KS side, Rosedale should be included.

2. Another thought is playing down under, but I don't know how everyone else feels about having DU rounds count towards their rating, OR if RDU is even PDGA-recognized.

I know there is still one date that is TBD, and it would be fun!  I am looking forward to making it out this Wednesday, and for the official rated rounds to start the next week.

3. One other question: To play in the Open division AND collect $$$ would I have to have a Professional PDGA membership?

Thanks for your questions. For ease of reply -
1. Not yet.  We got 8 weeks or so before the TBD, but it will be set on where plenty early.
2. Yes, Rose Down Under could be used for a PDGA league. 
3. You don't have to be  PDGA member to play open or amateur for the league.  The $1 charged as the add-on over normal KCFDC league fees are charged from everyone regardless of PDGA membership.

~210 ft hole 9, Arboretum Course, Parsons, KS
Steep Hyzer with an Elite-X Wasp
Will Schusterick called it in Mid-flight.

Nice.  I love me some Wasp.

Set it LONG and brutal... Each week we will plant a new tree as well.
Hey dude, how much longer and more brutal can you get? Actually I do like 4 in the long pin.
