Water Works / Workday at Water Works May 29 at 9 am
« on: May 19, 2011, 02:09:54 PM »
It's that time again to get the crown jewel of Kansas City courses ready for the Wide Open. Tasks include getting chips down, deadwood and trash collection, cutting back honeysuckle, and some other trimming. We might have to clean the drain again on #9. We will have some tools there, but feel free to bring your own and gloves as well.

In addition, Bill Neenan will have trash bags for hole adopters. Please feel free to begin the clean up of deadwood and trash prior to the workday. Actually, it's good karma to always leave the course cleaner than you found it and its double-good karma to have helped get the course ready when you play the Wide Open!

We're still looking for people to adopt holes. Here's what I think has been claimed:

#6: Dustin Hudson
#8: Rick Rothstein
#11: Mark Mills
#12: Jamie Barry
#14: Jason Poole
#15: Ian Stone

For the most part, the work involved is emptying the trash and bringing the bags to designated areas, removing deadwood and trash, and some trimming. Please contact me if you can lend an hand.

Water Works / Be Part of the Solution—Adopt a Hole
« on: April 07, 2011, 07:54:04 PM »
   
Adopt a Hole at Water Works
Water Works Disc Golf Course is one of the most beautiful disc golf courses in the World. Its care is entrusted to the Kansas City Flying Disc Club and the Kansas City Parks and Recreation Department. The newly recreated Water Works Course Care Committee is looking for volunteers to adopt a hole. Here are the responsibilities:

1. Monitor the trash can on a weekly basis. When the trash can gets over half full, replace the bag (which will be supplied) and bring the bag to the curb for Parks Department pickup.
2. Keep the hole clean of dead wood and trash.
3. Chip bare areas as needed.
4. Suggest other improvements for the holes. Funding requests must be approved by the KCFDC Board of Directors.

Bill Neenan and Rick Rothstein are heading up the committee and will be announcing work days for bigger projects. Please contact Rick at 816.914.0094 or rick@discgolfworld.com or Bill at 816.868.1977 and let them know what hole(s) you want to adopt.

2011 Maintenance and Improvement Goals

Please let us know what projects—short term or long term—that you would like to undertake. The KCFDC has funds for course improvements. Below are some projects we would like to finish this year.

1. Build a bigger marquee. Maybe not as big as the one at Rosedale, but we need at least twice the surface area than  the current marquee.
2. Build stairs from 5 to 6.
3. Trim the hedges back on the right side of hole 4.
4. Plant grass seed where the temp tees were during the water main construction and other areas as needed.
5. Remove the deadwood (tree trunk)  from 18 fairway.
6. Remove the old tee signs.
7. Eradicate honeysuckle.
8. Plant flowers and perhaps bushes.
9. Plant trees. Hole 4 especially needs some help.
10. Keep the slough clean on hole 9.
11. Count carefully all volunteer hours because:
    a. It's important that the Parks Depart ment knows how much free labor we provide. This helps us bargain with them in getting support for our projects.
    b. Rick wants to beta test some kind of rewards program at Disc Golf World where discounts would be given to volunteers who put in “X” amount of volunteer hours. The committee would help determine what the "X" amount should be.
   c. Relatedly, we'd like to come up with some article of clothing—probably a shirt—that would go to those people who put in a large number of hours. What this large amount would have to be determined. The design for the shirt would have to be  determined as well, but we'd want to acknowledge that the wearer was indeed a Friend of Water Works Disc Golf.

We've tweaked the divisions just a little bit again this year. However, the only age based division remains the 100-Year Division, where the sum of the partner's age at tee off must be at least 100 years. We have added a women's division and a parent-child division (with no age restrictions).

A registration form can be downloaded here:  http://icebowlhq.com/docs/ssr11.pdf.

Tournaments / Looking for High-Res Photos from the 2010 Wide Open
« on: January 19, 2011, 12:22:24 PM »
The Wide Open will be included in the new NT Guide that is being produced as we speak. The art director is looking for high-res action photos, ideally of the winning players, from the 2010 Wide Open. Can anyone help?

Mark Ehlert from the Columbia Disc Golf Club asked me to let people know about this event:

Please pass the word in KC about our Huckin' Against Hunger event in Columbia. We have made arrangements with Columbia Country Club (off old Highway 63, between Business Loop and Broadway) to play 18 holes on their ball golf course.  We get to have registration starting at 10 in a nice heated club house with TVs and a cash bar and the course is fun to play.  We'll do a shotgun start as close to noon as possible.
 
Registration is $50 and cart rental is an additional $10 per player.  The registration covers the fee we pay to CCC and all proceeds above that fee goes to the local food bank.  Players play for donated prizes and the chance to play on a ball golfl course.  We raised over $800 for the food bank last year and hope to top $1000 this year.
 
Thanks for helping to spread the word.  If you know of a group planning to come and play, please have them get in touch with Tony Hulen, tonydesignsolutions@gmail.com so he has an idea of how many players may show up.
 
Mark

General Banter / Baskets for Sale, Good Bye Ted's Dread
« on: October 05, 2010, 02:37:15 PM »
Ted Kubicki has 18 portable DISCatchers for sale. They were purchased new in August 2009 and have had probably fewer than 250 rounds on them. You can contact Ted at 913.530.3312. He has sold his house and property and will be out there the last week of this month.

23
I'm trying something a little different this year with the RAC. We've beefed up the player's package so that its value is slightly more than the entry fee and will be awarding trophies only as prizes, at least for those who pay the base entry fee of $27.

For those who prefer to go for more winnings, we're offering an optional $10 prize pool entry, that will be paid out in prizes. All players who opt to play for the prizes will be in the same pool, regardless of which division they are in.

If you have any questions after reading the flyer, please let me know.

Found and Lost / Lost and Found at Disc Golf World
« on: July 27, 2010, 12:35:18 PM »
Below is a list of discs that have been returned to DGW in the last several months. We have now called the numbers on all the discs for a second time. Our new policy on returning found discs is that we will hold them for 30 days before they get moved into for sale box. The proceeds of these discs will be used to enhance the 2011 Wide Open.

Here's how we envision how this system works.

1. Return found discs with contact information to DGW.
2. DGW will immediately contact the disc's owner, letting them know that we'll hold it for 30 days.
3. We will enter this information in a spreadsheet.
4. About once a week or so, we'll list the found discs in this thread.
5. If the disc has not been claimed in 3 weeks, we'll attempt to contact the owner again.
6. At 30 days, the disc will be put on sale. Of course, if the owner shows up after that and the disc is still here, they can recover it..

As a point of information, several people do make contact with the found disc's owner, telling them that they intend to bring the disc to DGW. Sometimes they do not do this right away. Thus, until you hear from us, it's likely that your disc has not been returned to us yet.

We thank everyone who attempts to get discs back to their owners. Just remember that the good karma you're earning sometimes takes a while to come around. One of the strengths of our disc golf community is that we have way more people of good will, who try to do the right thing, than mean-spirited people.

As we've received several inquiries, I wanted the viewing audience out here to know that Z-Nukes have just arrived at Disc Golf World. They range in weight at 170-74 and are regularly priced.

As many of you know, Disc Golf World has encouraged people to return lost discs to us to facilitate their return. When we get a found disc, we immediately call or email the owner. Sometimes, we make a second call. Although many discs have been reunited with their owners, we are now sitting on nearly 200 discs that have not been claimed in at least six months. We need to get rid of them.

Starting June 1, we are going to offer these discs for sale with the proceeds going towards the Kansas City Wide Open. We will be open this weekend and encourage you to stop by if you remember us calling you about a disc a long time ago, and you never came for it. Of course, if you find your disc in the for-sale boxes after the sale begins, you may claim it. We have a separate stack of about 40 discs that we have called recently. (Within 6 months.)

Moving forward, we're going to start marking on the found discs the day we make the call to its owner, and will hold those discs for 60 days. After that time, they will become for-sale discs.

I know a lot of people contact the found disc's owner and tell them that they will take it to Disc Golf World. While you're always welcome to come to the store, unless you get a call from Disc Golf World, the disc probably hasn't been delivered to us yet. We strive to contact disc owners as soon as they are returned to us.

Thanks to everyone who keep the community spirit alive by trying to get discs back to their owners.

Tournaments / 28th Annual Wide Open - Countdown to 30
« on: January 12, 2010, 02:10:50 PM »
The 28th Annual Kansas City Wide Open is scheduled as a PDGA B-Tier for June 19-20. Registration information will be forthcoming in the next couple of weeks. This Wide Open is being co-produced this year by Disc Golf World (Rick Rothstein) of Kansas City and Dynamic Discs (Jeremy Rusco) of Emporia, KS.

Jeremy and I will be making some decisions soon about formats, but wanted to use this forum to get some feedback from people who play PDGA events. We're pretty locked in that everyone will play 4 18-hole rounds, but we're not certain about how many courses each division should play.

Which of the scenarios to you prefer and why?

1. To play 4 courses. One round on each course.

2. To play 2 courses: Two rounds on each course.

3. To play 3 courses. Two rounds on one course and one round on each of the other two courses.

An argument for playing a course a second time is that it gives the player another shot at the course. This could be making amends after a less-than-stellar first round. Or it could be showing one's mastery by shredding the courses a second time. For travelers new to KC, trying to practice fewer courses takes less time.

An argument for more courses is variety. KC is famous for its courses, so it's a good thing to let people sample more tracks.

Anyway, any and all feedback is appreciated.

Also, if you are interested in volunteering for the Wide Open, let me know.

Thanks for the input.

Rick
