My hunger for donuts is insatiable.  I prefer to call them lugnuts as they are round and help keep the spare tire on.

Project Blue River Rescue
Date: March 28, 2015
Time: 8:00 am - 12:00 pm
Volunteers of all ages and abilities are needed to clean up the Blue River. Dedicated sites are available for groups. T-shirts, work gloves, tools, and trash bags will be provided. Donuts and coffee will be available at sign-in and volunteers will meet back at Lakeside Nature Center for lunch at noon.

This volunteer event will be held Sat., March 28, 8 a.m. – 12 p.m. at the Lakeside Nature Center, 4701 E. Gregory Blvd., Kansas City, MO. Register at or by calling 816-513-8960.

Is this the Nature Center south of Swope?
Should I register early?

I was particularly wanting to work at Blue Valley.  So, a group of people will meet at the N.C. and then go over to BV?

Not a resident Rob just a concerned disc golfer who lives in the area.

I appreciate your sincere concern. Kudos

Ah, it is Steve Stansberry! Sorry, I didn't recognize your handle. The different tees really are utilized at various tournaments, even at worlds. As long as there are 3 Propogators it's all good. Hope you can make more of Maverick's DG tournaments. My goal is cheap tournaments on new courses. Payouts might be lower, but I'm not a huge company.

Hope you understand.  It's about the game, right?!


Hey Dan Howard, here is your contact:

Let me know what Doug has to say.

Let me know what they say. I'm curious. Thanks Dan

If you need their email address, let me know. I'll share it with you.

Steve, et al,

This is a great discussion on ratings. I actually have spent quite a bit of time researching on how they work. You could say I'm a rating geek.

For more information, I would recommend reading this:

For further clarification, if you email Chuck Kennedy with the PDGA, he is really good at explaining things and replying pretty quickly. After emailing him personally and reading various commentaries he has written, he strikes me as being very intelligent on the subject matter.

Steve Stransberry or Strawberry? 

Both the PDGA Am Worlds and the PDGA Pro Worlds used long and short tee pads both in 2013 and 2014. It does work. It will be ok.


Nice to meet you Steve. As long as there are a minimum of three Propogators, the PDGA ratings will be rated correctly per Chuck Kennedy, the main creator of the PDGA rating system. For greater detail on how the work, I would recommend contacting the PDGA rating committee. As far as the flow goes, for this course, having different tee pads will help the flow of play, give higher divisions greater challenges, while encouraging lower divisions with a more realistic experience for their playing level.  Thanks for asking.

Yes Dan, please contact the City of Ottawa. By the way, are you a resident?  Just asking because I have two Ottawa residents plus an employee of the Franklin County Convention and Visitors Bureau that is working with me on the tournament.

Steve the Quiz Berry - have we met?  What's your real name?  Mine is Rob Martin.

My apologies, is it not OK for me to post an A-tier here? If it's not, I'll happily delete the post. Thanks.

No, perfectly fine in all honesty.  Don't let me stop you.  I lived in Chi-Town for years, and always had to drive down there to see Gary to play.  Love the area, but the drive is a killer, and the notion that there is an A-Tier closer (PDGA's fault not yours) is always something strikes me odd. 

There are plenty of people who may opt for this, so this is WAY more than appropriate to post it in here.

As Kevin indicated it is better to post it here than to delete it.

I hope the event is a big success I really do.  I just wish it wasn't on a weekend that has always been Des Moines weekend.  I am looking for an excuse to get back up there to visit and play, and I don't wanna go over to IN and Lemon Lake to play.

I haven't played this Canyon's course yet, maybe plan on playing it on my way to K-Zoo this summer, so it is very informative, regardless of this smart-ass comment! 


No disrespect meant, but sarcasm is often lost on me in the rooms, in person not so much!

Keeping for reference.
