Got any special rules to level it out for advanced players?  I'd love to play also but there is no way I can even think about keeping up with Arturo, Bobby or Pete....especially if it costs $25.

Do you know an advanced player that wants to play, Andy, or an intermediate? hahaha

Wyco Sunday morning? Does one need a special invitation to participate, or just cash? I would possibly like to try a round.....

A pro disc golf course designer is not applicable in every situation.  For example, Lake Lenexa is not ready for a pro disc golf designer.  The park is going to add features in stages over the next 2-4 years.  Hiring a pro designer right now wouldn't make any sense.  Any course going in to this new park will be inevitably altered/tweaked/changed many times over the next few years.  It will be more ideal to hire a pro designer when the entire park is complete, and the flow of foot traffic in the park is finally determined.  The best use of a pro designer is where you have an entire park completely devoted to disc golf, with little or no conflict anticipated with joggers, dog-walkers, soccer moms, etc.  You want your final layout to be determined by a pro designer.  Otherwise I believe money would be wasted in hiring one.  Now if a pro designer would come out and design a course for free, then bring one in immediately.

What I am talking about isn't hiring a "professional course designer". I'm saying a course should be designed by a pro level disc golf player with a lot of tournament experience. This is what Hosfeld was writing about, and I tend to agree that someone that has played in a lot of tournaments at a variety of courses will most probably be able to provide a better design than a lower rated player that has not played many different courses.

And if the city elects to install a dg course, consult a qualified dg course designer. I agree with Greg Hosfeld's article in the latest Disc Golf World. DG course design should be done by a pro level player with at least ten years tournament experience.

I must have left it there during some putting practice. Warren, if you can call me at 913-928-7154(work) or at 913-829-5912(home) I can come pick it up or we could meet at the course some time.

Hey Kev, who are you calling loco?

Cliff Drive / T-pads
« on: May 22, 2006, 12:08:48 pm »
I was wondering if any T-pads had been built at Cliff Drive yet? If not, is there a plan to do so?

I'll be over there for some leagues this summer when I am fully recovered.

Blue Valley / Tearing Up The Course!!!

Perhaps some "severe tire damage spikes" could be installed in their favorite acceleration lanes, or, of course, a 50 cal sniper rifle is very effective at ranges up to 1000 yards.

I think another reason there isn't a league on Saturday or Sunday during the warm weather months is the fact that there are tournaments on a lot of the weekends that are within easy driving distance of KC, so a lot of the potential league players would be out of town.

I was in the horsepistol April 17 to April 21. I the was off work from April 24 to today, May 3. I am still not well, but am improving. The doctors say I should be 100% by the first of July. Thanks for the thoughts and prayers everyone. Hope to see you on the courses before long.

General Banter / summer leagues
« on: April 03, 2006, 12:08:02 pm »
I was curious as to why Cliff Drive league is on Monday, when there is already a league on Monday in Olathe, and one at Rosedale for new players? It seems to me that Friday would have been a better day of the week for the Cliff Drive league.

Another question I had too; is the Cliff Drive league $5 with $1.50 going to the club just as the other KCFDC leagues are? I plan on attending some this summer and wondered about the format and payout.  

Come out to olathe tonight to kick off the summer league season. According to Bob the ACE fund is well over $500.
