Cliff Drive / Re: League 8/18 (Chappy & Rick's Bday!!)

not wanting to give in......but it is easier to get to off the highway.....but Cliff Drive is still closer to downtown.......KCMO...

Cliff Drive to 1200 main is 2.24
Rosedale to 1200 main is 4.39

Cliff Drive to 7th and Minnesota (Downtown KCK) is 4.57
Rosedale to 7th and Minnesoat (see above) is 4.88

So now that I did some research it is closer to both KC and KCMO downtown, so I stand by my stance!

Cliff is definitely closer to downtown than Rosedale, however, the term "centralized" could also have meant the geographical center of the Greater Kansas City metropolitan area disc golf playing population base.

12 out for some fun before the Lions Den is opened!
In a SHOCKING happening, Arturo beat everyone....I know you are all in awe.....
Jack-58 (With a SUHWEET putt to beat Danger in a playoff from the road, he missed, I didn't!!!)
Hart Donation-59
Morales-63 (Lateness will no longer be allowed, daylight is to scarce....)
Bill N-66
Lexi-83 (I mis added your mis added....)

Saturday is on, and then back to league on Monday.  See what happens as you too can be a part of the most centralized disc golf league in Kansas City!!!

I would argue that Rosedale is the most centralized league.

I'm still awaiting the final word, but indications are we will not be moving any holes into the land to the west in the near future, nor in time for worlds.

The P & R is still contemplating their options on the potential safety issues with the new walk trail on holes 14 and 15. I'll let eveyone know as soon as they tell me.

I forgot to post my ACE.

I ACED hole #12 at the Olathe Open on August 2, 2008. I threw a green 174g ESP Buzz, with anhyzer into the short placement. Cecil C. saw it the entire way. First ACE in 3 years or so for me. It made for my 4th ACE ever, and my first tourney ACE.

Good times!

I would think the parks dept has insurance for stolen park equipment.

Pete Cashen ACED hole #4 at Rosey last night in league. He threw a Roc, I believe. It flew clean down the fairway with hyzer and crashed right into the sweet spot of the chains. Witnesses were myself, J.J., and Gary. Good times!

Maybe we should have a reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of basket theives.

If it was lost at Wyco, it can be best searched for and found in the dark.

 If you want to check out another new course, I've heard the course that went in in Atchinson is pretty good.
 On a side note, Atchinson is known as the most haunted town in Kansas.

the headline should read..... OLATHE POSSE TAKES NO PRISONERS.

Other than the brutal heat, I thought it was a fun, smoothly ran tourney. Good job to Rick and all the posse that helped with the prep and the tourney day work. I'd also like to thank all the players that came out and made the day.

I'd be in favor of not having any OB on 13 and 14.

Entrys are coming in. The long ranger is calling for sunny, 92, and winds around 9. This is classic Olathe tourney weather. Pre-reg is probably a good idea if you are thinking about playing. Let's fill er up!

A productive day of course enhancement occured on Saturday, July 26 at Prairie Center Park in Olathe.

Approximately 4 cubic yards of shredded wood chips were placed around tees 1, 4, and 8, as well as the 2 basket on the island. These locations were some of the more heavily eroded on the course.

The fabulous DR mower made yet another appearence and with Andy and Adam guiding it around made many of the back holes far easier to navigate. If anybody hasn't seen one of these, it's basically a walk behind, self propelled brush hog. This is the most signifigant task that got done. Anybody that plays Olathe owes Andy and Adam a big thanks for the DR.   

Low hanging dead limbs were removed on hole 14 left.

Dead fall and some dead branches were removed on holes 12 and 13.

Hole 15 tee box had been partially obstructed by branches on a willow growing beside the pond. This was taken care of with some selective pruning and the denting of Andy's truck.

Hole 8 tee had also been partially obstructed by low hanging branches. Some selelective pruning occured here.

Some of the barbed wire fence line was repaired (Andy again).

Bryan G. hit multiple areas with his weed eater.

I probably missed some of the tasks, but most were included above.

A crew of 7 humans and one small canine worked most of the morning. Andy was there early, but I would say most everyone worked between 4 and 5 hours. After the work we enjoyed a picnic with Oklahoma Joes and drink, and most went to the Redneck Yacht Club for a relaxing afternoon on the Lake of Gardner.


Andy Lewis (get r done)
Adam (I had his last name but...?)it's his DR we get to use.
Tom Butler
Cindy Butler (runner, provider of refresments, and shoveling dudette)
Bryan Guthrie
Dean Uhlman
Wes Lubberts (when your young you can shovel huge amounts of stuff)


Mr. (it's my park) Gus

Thanks to all that came out. Baskets are for the most part in round 1 settings, so come out Monday and give it a whirl.
