General Banter / **GENERAL MEETING** Reminder
« on: January 28, 2008, 06:53:51 pm »
Just a reminder about the General Club Meeting and Elections on Tuesday evening:

Tuesday, January 29, 7 p.m. Westin Crown Center - Shawnee Room

This is an open meeting for all Kansas City Flying Disc Club Members (who must be active to run for
office and vote), as well as any other interested disc golfers. You can sign up for the club or renew
your membership at the meeting. The Westin is located at 1 East Pershing Rd. There is some free
parking on the Crown Center side of the complex. The Shawnee Room is on the Ballroom level. The
Brasserie Bar is the lobby level. The primary purpose of the meeting is to elect officers. (See minutes
on next page to see who is running so far.) Another call for nominations will precede the elections.
Other topics will include how to improve leagues, the 2009 Worlds, and the Wide Open.

I didn't really have a plan for it but Steve mentioned it would be something he'd like to see.  I just can't see how we'd be able to do that for all the multiple pin placements we are blessed with at Rosie.  But if there is a will I'm sure there is a way.

Another thing I thought of after my first post was Recycling containers.  I am not sure if it is feasible or not but if the club took the responsibility of recycling can's that money can re-used to offset the cost of printing scorecards/maps etc.

Several of those are must do's this spring especially repairing the stairs.  It was mentioned to me if we do replace the stairs with wood that we also apply some type of anti-slip treatment to the tops.

With painting of the sleeves I think we need to get more organized on pin placement configurations and developing some way for people to know how the course is set up whether that be at #1 or on a hole by hole  system.  I think with how some of the holes have more placement than others it may be easier to have some colored wood signs that we hang at each tee indicating colored location for the day.

I heard this weekend someone mention a way to permanently mark the 10 meter circle.  Any ideas if this is being done anywhere else in the country?

More workdays, with better communication.  Use the on course bulletin board.

More love for Rosie she been abused the last couple years.  ;D

Word is going around 3:30pm on Saturday there will be workers getting the course into good shape for the Ice Bowl.  If you have a shovel, rake, two arms anything to help spread the mulch we'd all appreciate your help.

Now I know this is very last minute like under 24 hours last minute, but if you're not doing anything tomorrow and want to pitch in it would be great.  Plus Chris maybe by 3:30 the tees won't need shoveling because it may melt  ;).

We do not have a key for the glow gathering on Monday nights.  But if you vote for me as Course Coordinator I will be sure they get changed more frequently and updated on this here website.

Are you sure Andy?  It says on the Ice Bowl registration that they will be available there.  That leads me to think they are already finished or close to being finished  ???

As far as I know we still need help  ??? so if you are a designer and would like to throw out an idea for a Tag design that would be great.

Beginners / Re: New Players League - Monday's

This is currently on hold until the Spring.  But most of the guys who have played in the New Players League for the last year or so are still showing up at Rosedale on Mondays to play Glow golf.  We tee off at 6pm Snow, Ice, or whatever.

Theis, I am sorry but I do not know who this guy is.  Is there any chance you'd be able to ask him and see if has any ideas?

What we are looking for right now is someone who could design us something cool, and functional.  From what I've heard we got a sweet deal on last years tags and could acquire the same deal for '08.  The only thing really lacking is a creative and interesting design.

So Bradley if your buddy can produce some cool design the club and everyone else would certainly like to take a look at it.  See if he'll put something out there for and post a pic of it here.

I believe we are talking about increasing the number to 200 this year.

Some other cities use smaller winter tournaments to build up the donations as well.  Like having a Winter tournament series or something playing on Saturday's at different courses around the city.  Everyone would pay a entry fee like normal except all of the winnings or a portion of them goes into a giant fund that keeps getting rolled over for the Ice Bowl.

Now I understand it might be too late to do something like that this year but it's an idea we could use for next year.

Winter Leagues / Re: Mondays Rosedale GLOW
« on: November 13, 2007, 04:21:12 pm »
You guys should probably note that in an obvious manner or you re liable to get people showing up that think that it's a regular league.

Here is the biggest difference we don't call it a LEAGUE!!!!!!   There are no stat's, prizes, winners, losers.  So maybe this needs to be moved to Rosedale forum and out of Winter leagues.  It's simply a Gathering at Rosedale on Monday nights and I've invited anyone and everyone that wants to show to come.  It's no big deal really guys.  We did not set out with the purpose of competing with Olathe.  In fact we even tried to send Olathe Mark Martin last night when he figured out he wasn't going to win any money from us.

So I hope there is no hard feelings, we're just a bunch of hack golfers that like to throw discs in the dark.

The club certainly needs a secretary in a bad way. I can't even remember the last news letter. There hasn't been many of those in the last 3 or so years.

What's does being secretary involve?  That may be a position I'd be interested in.

The Secretary is responsible for taking meeting minutes (either he or she does it and finds someone do it--thanks Kevin!!). After that, the minutes are written up and sent to the rest of the EC for approval. Once the minutes are approved, the Secretary posts them out here, perhaps through Topica (although that will likely be phased out  next year), and if they are really, really good, to get them posted on course boards.

The Secretary is also the lead person in getting newsletters out, ideally at least four times a year, and perhaps up to 6 mailings a year. Important information to convey includes announcements about elections, general meetings, events, work days, picnics, parties, hangings, etc. To foster better communication, the Secretary needs to be in almost constant communication with the other members of the EC to get them to share in the communication process. Having good writing skills is a big asset for anyone who is Secretary. A Secretary with some internet skills is plus as we'll want to send electronic newsletters when possible to save money and time. Once the NL is laid out, it must be printed, folded, addressed, stamped, and delivered to the post office. Extra copies should be delivered to league directors and DGW. A conscientious Secretary will likely be spending 20-30 hours per month.

I think I've got all of those qualifications.  Does someone have to nominate you for these positions?

I nominate Chris for secretary.
