It was a tough hot night to play, but a very cool setup. What was Par for the course btw? I forgot to ask or look. Thanks MK for keeping the league fresh each week, you are an outstanding LD.

It's not "way out there" Steve, compared to P-Hill. It's off of the biggest highway in Kansas or Missouri, I-70.

Anyway... since negative train seems to keep choo-choo'ing along these forums, let me tell you why I cannot make it.

I have two kids under 6 and Friday for me is time to spend with the family. I too am married and tend to only make one league night a week, and this year Tuesdays seem to work best for me and the wife, so I've been going to SMPark. I do agree that Friday seems to be a more family outing sort of night, so maybe your demographic should cater more to the "Masters/Grandmasters" who's kids are older and are out doing their own thing on Friday Nights, or the "Young Gun's" who have yet to, or are not looking to start a family sometime soon.

For those who have never played Wy-Co, it really is a great layout. It has a few picturesque shots, a few tight holes, and some wide open bombs. It's a good mix of distance and terrain, but still forgiving to the "Am" player. Is it Cliff or WW? No, but it's definitely a disc course you should play more than once and I think you would enjoy it. Best of luck in recruiting more folks to come out and play, and if I ever get a free Friday evening I will make the "Oregon Trail" journey about 9 minutes down K-7 to visit from Olathe.

Hey Chucked my 2013 COF World on #15 PC (pin is short right) and have no clue where it went (left in the tall grass somewhere?).

If you find it I would appreciate it's return, If you have one and don't use it, I might want to purchase it off of you. It had the multi color, silver dollar size stamp on the top near the edge. Let me know. I do like the white although i think there were different colors given out that day.

Where you playing at this week Harold? I'm not a facebooker so if it's posted there im out of the loop.

Thanks for another great league night! Got done just in time before the sky dumped on us! I left an orange mini out there somewhere if anyone finds it let me know. I seem to be losing more mini's than disc's lately...i guess that's a good thing?

I agree Jack. The news just did a segment on how the amount of trees and green space there is in a neighborhood is directly correlated with the amount of violence or lack there of. The woman speaking was a Buddhist, and probably completely forgets the Heian period and Warring States period over in Japan (both filled with green space and violent Buddhists), but yes today most Buddhists are very friendly and non-violent.

People can call them "hood" courses all they want. This bratty JO-CO residing Olathean loves both of them, and plays them as often as he can. Thanks for all that you do Jack!

It was a great ace to witness Brad. Congrats!

Maybe you need to work on "over the water" more Nailer and let the other stuff alone for now.  ;)

He gets over the water fine in the winter....

They are aware of the programming possibilities with JoCo for certain.  We (KCFDC) have a long historical effort of working on development and plans for the courses there as well as success in their parks.  I know initially I believe myself and Jake were at the initial planning meetings for the 2020 plan-2002- (Heritage Park disc golf development to be included on the Master Plan-The course Scott is working on) and the current scenario of the disc golf course on SMP makes them very aware of the continued year round support the course receives.  They are aware of the growth we bring, and yesterday there was a clear indication of the acknowledgement that disc was high on the radar.  Many noticed as myself and Dirk were out throwing my discs on the golf course for certain.

Bottom line be positive in your communication with the goals.  Realization that the land available may not be enough to have a "championship length", but that is ok.  A well designed course that encourages participation at all levels is just as needed as the continuation of these "long" courses that deter the newer player from enjoying.

Not everyone wants to play on holes that average 350'-500'.  So the balance act of the land truly available for the use (if approved) plays a much more pivotal role in the size of the course, and ultimate the needs of the community.  I would venture to say that a smaller, challenging, well designed course can be just as advantageous in the neighborhood as a bomber course.

I agree Jack, I work for OP and live in south Johnson County, selfishly I just want a course close to work. Growing the game is more important for sure.

Although... since I am graduating with my BA in Business in May, anyone feel free to offer me a new career path that has an office next to WW or in Downtown so I can play Cliff at lunch. Might be open to Sporting offering me a Turf job as well near WyCo... balls in your court people!

Bad thing about it though Andy... We still do not have a "Championship Length" Disc Golf Course in OP. There will be 3 in Olathe once Scott is done at Heritage Park, and one in Lenexa. I hope the meetings went well, I wish I could attend as well, but JOCO P&R always has my support!

On a similar side note. For those who may like other forms of the game of golf, there might be a Foot Golf course going in around the OP area in 2016. I will give details when I know more.

The Frostbreaker will be meeting at Shelter #1 which is across from the parking lot near Hole #7 and #8.  You must checkin in between 8am and 8:45am.  Please spread the word to your friends who might not see this.

Also based on previous years, there is a good chance that we will have less than a 1 hour lunch so be prepared for a shorter lunch time.

For those who do not know, take a right when entering the main entrance off of Renner Blvd., as opposed to a left that you would normally take to get to the first hole. You will run into it no problem.

General Banter / Re: New "frisbie golf" course in south Johnson County
« on: January 06, 2015, 08:37:15 PM »
According to the City Manager, this is supposed to be the biggest development ever for OP. So much so, they have already projected jobs for planners, public works people, parks people ect. They just call it "Frisbee golf" because they don't understand our sport, but see the increase in popularity. Much like the "Ultimate" player walking by us in PC the other day saying "It's a great day to throw the Frisbee" looking at the disc's in our hands. Since OP put into it's CIP that they would build a Disc Golf Course, this might be the compromise since they seem to not want to find the land and space to do it anywhere else. Having access to all the parks maps, I see so much potential, but because of the precious bike/hike trail they so desperately do not want to intrude on, it would make sense that they build one out there.  Although I imagine it will be a flat, open disappointment. I guess we will see.

Hey Utz... It's very evident that you want to pursue a side bar dialogue in every post, and frankly it's not very impressive or becoming of someone who is supposed to represent our Disc community. In fact it's very childish. I do not know why you feel the need to continue to stir the pot, and all you are doing is trying to get back at someone who did absolutely nothing to you. Furthermore you are taking away from an important conversation, and insinuating that you do not care that the parks that you play at are being vandalized. If you are truly this angry and upset, it cannot be because of one comment or one post. You might need to rethink how you are acting and find a way past what is truly troubling you within your life. Though I am sure my words will be completely wasted, ignored, or threatened I will say the very few times I have met you, you NEVER acted this way until recently.

Furthermore, these forums are supposed to be about helping each other, finding information, and connecting as a community. Sarcasm is very hard to read over the internet, and sometimes words can be misunderstood. The bottom line is that we are all people and deserve respect, at least until we become disrespectful to others. We play Disc together for fun, to meet new people, for competition, and to enjoy the outdoors. Lets continue to focus on that moving forward.
