General Banter / DG spam?
« on: April 30, 2006, 01:02:05 AM »
anyone else get junkmail/spam about a "free DG offer"?  Someone's been harvesting from PDGA.  If we all take him up on it, maybe he won't be able to fulfill, we sue for breach of contract, and his butt is gone.

i'm going to Tulsa this weekend, I'll have most of the afternoon Friday and as long as I want Saturday...what courses are highly recommended?

I know, a look at the Worlds page would give info, but they were talking about new courses/layouts, and since I know nothing about the city to start with, who can advise?

Swope / The Swope evaluation is posted!
« on: March 15, 2006, 10:28:58 PM »
http://www.pdga.com/course/eval/course_eval_infotoptable.php?id=525

it came out higher than I was afraid it would!!  but, that's a real good thing.
With tee signs and some well placed plantings, it may not rank much higher in the world overall, but the scores would go up in some areas.

Next up:  WYCO, then Water Works.  Tedz is in process, but won't be posted anywhere except here and the Topica list.

first blush, hunch, doing them in my head, both WYCO and WW will be higher than Swope.  Ted's, the evaluation will look low because lack of amenities, the rough nature of the course (which to me is a PLUS, but the evaluation criteria doesn't necessarily reflect what seems logical to many), and the pads.  BUT, as far as design, it will be as high as anything out there.   Both #3 and #14 will get 9 scores for hole design.  Add in SSA, it'll be an amazing thing to see, but the ranking would be lowered because of non-design things  and lack of the "pretty" details in design, like trees.  don't make much sense, but that's the way it is.

I'll use a mix of long and short pins on both.

General Banter / Be careful with butts
« on: February 15, 2006, 05:47:12 PM »
It's almost past the point where this needs to be mentioned, with weather coming on, but please be aware of where you drop various lit butts.  It's been pretty dry for quite a while and there have been lots of grass fires all around the area at large.

And, with all the dryness, the trampling of grass at basket can cause more damage to the grass too, so moving baskets more frequently should be considered, so that come spring we won't have a bunch of dead grass.

General Banter / Designer Info
« on: February 09, 2006, 10:23:18 PM »
I need information on who designed each course here in KC area.

I know WyCo  Mike  Wesley, Jake Carmack, and Kevin Montgomery  Rosie--Ace Mason   Down Under--Jay (right??)   Cliff--Jack L mostly  Olathe--Ned Smethers et al   BV Jim K and Dan...but, who should be credited with Swope?  Water Works (Ace?  Hal??)  

If this info isn't right as it stands, please correct!

WYCO / P&R's been busy
« on: February 09, 2006, 06:32:02 PM »
There's been some cuttin' and clearin', and a bit of burnin', goin' on at WYCO.
Trees on 13, 3, 4, and 17 among others, the area to the north of 9 tee, along 17 fairway where the big pile of crap used to be, is pretty much cleared out and was smoldering when I left today.  Also a fire to the south of 3 pins, just east of 4 tee.  It's looking good!

KanUWyco will be fun...

Tournaments / If you're driving to the Ice Bowl
« on: January 27, 2006, 10:22:02 PM »
be alert, at least if you're coming from the North or East, I670 Westbound is CLOSED through downtown (the south side of the Loop) all the way through Sunday night.  If you're coming east on 70, or south on 35/29, you'll have to go around the north side of the Loop to get to 35 South.

Rosedale / conditions down under
« on: November 18, 2005, 06:09:46 PM »
It's GREAT!  

#17 especially seems to be a lot more open right now, than it has in the past.  Is that my imagination, or has some woodchopping been done?  I've not been down there since May, but the whole course seems to be in great shape.

Thanks, Jay, for whatever you've done (and whoever else has worked on it)

General Banter / KCFDC membership
« on: September 16, 2005, 06:03:20 PM »
The Kansas City Flying Disc Club is the primary source of local coordination of disc golf activities.  No, it's not FEMA or the military, but the Club has played an important role in the Kansas City area.

Since the Club assumed responsitility for the Swope Park course, and worked with various city governmental agencies to put in the other courses, many things have gone well.  The parks are safer--crime in many forms is down thanks to the many clean up activities, as well as more people actively using the parks.  The city of KCMO has actually requested that we try to put courses in a few places, to help stabilize the park areas.  Parks are cleaner.    The cities are grateful for our presence, and they have been glad to help us in many ways.

Leagues, tournaments,  work days, "KC Cash", the Club Championship, the spring meeting--the KCFDC does a lot for disc golfers in Kansas City.
The Club maintains the courses (aside from Ted's Dread and California Trail).  We do community events, like booths at local festivals, special events like the Community of Christ Youth Festival and Camp Win, and have even received an award for our work in helping clean the parks and eradicating honeysuckle.
We have a contract with the KCMO Parks and Rec dept that gives us a lot of privileges in KCMO parks which most people don't have.

Right now, the Club has roughly 200 members.  Considering the number of people at Rosedale alone in one week, that's a fairly small percentage of the disc golfers in the KC area.    

Sure, you gotta pay the dues.  And you'll be asked to do some work.  But, it's worth it.  

Without the KCFDC, this website wouldn't be here.  Think about THAT.

If you REALLY want to be part of the disc golf scene in Kansas City, join us in the KCFDC.  Contact any of the officers listed on the website (www.kcfdc.org) or stop in and see Rick at Disc Golf World (currently, the secretary of the Club.)  It's getting to be time for the Club Championship tournament, and you NEED to play it!!  Your involvement will make it better for everyone!

General Banter / Middle School Course, Olathe
« on: July 20, 2005, 05:42:15 PM »
The school course at 135th and Pflumm (California Trail??)  certainly isn't a gem among gems, but it's nice for those times when it's convenient and time is a consideration.  (I'm spending a lot of time in Olathe ;)

The #8 basket has been missing for quite a while, at least the 6 months that I've been hanging out here.  And, lately, #2 and #6 need work, the basket is on the ground, although #2 has been engineered so it's in place, barely.

I'm planning to talk to the school sometime in the next couple of weeks, to see what can be done to make that course a bit more complete, and maybe better.  Would anyone be interested in contributing toward buying a basket for them, on behalf of the KCFDC?  I'd also like to see a couple of the baskets relocated, and maybe a couple  tee boxes, such as they are, moved as well.  

Just an idea.  Lemme know, here or on Topica, if you think this is worth it.

steve
