If anybody has time and would want to do some volunteering today, just call me at 913-732-2184.

Otherwise, we'll start at hole 4 Lakeside tomorrow around 10:30.

The tourney position for hole 1 at Bird will be the long pin. (where it's been since opening).

If I have time and am able to, I will be installing a super short 4, a long 6, and a long 18, and if in, chances are those will be used for the OSO.

Hi Tom:

A couple of questions:

1)  Will the short placement at Lakeside Hills Hole #1 be in place by tournament time? Possibly  Will it be used?Possibly
2)  Are we accepting more than 90 to utilize both courses simultaneously?Yes

PC will be set in medium/easy difficulty, Bird will be as easy as always...  ;)

General Banter / PC and Birdland workdays
« on: August 15, 2013, 06:57:36 AM »
This coming Sunday (8-18-13) we will be doing some volunteer work at Birdand, and possibly at PC as well.

If you have a weedeater, machete, chainsaw, loppers, or some napalm, bring em. Gloves are a good idea as well as large amounts of deet and agent orange.

I'll be working on hole 4 at Bird, starting around 10:30. I want to get the trail redefined on the right. Depending on the crew size and weaponry, we may tackle another task or two while there. We'll play it by ear, but I'd like to migrate to hole 15 at PC after an hour or two at Bird and spend and hour or two getting the pond all mowed and trimmed up.

I met with the City last night and toured both courses. As usual, they were receptive to helping out with more fine tuning of the mow. The extreme rough between fairways on the back nine will be mowed down to 1' prior to Old Settlers. We should also have wood chips delivered to hole 4 at Bird and hole 15 at PC, which we will spread. Depending on the weather, the City will try to re-chip all the tees at PC as well.

Watch this thread for updates, and announced plans for semi-organized work sessions over the next two weeks.  8)

If you have some free time over the next two weeks, and want to go out on your own, just call me, message me on here, or email me, and I can aim you in the direction of greatest need.

Jeff O.... If you are wantin to do some PC karma building and have a weedeater, go to the pond placement, and starting just to the southeast of the basket commence mowing in and among the trees. The dead tree on 2, hold off on. The City likely will take it out.

I am starting a new thread related to PC and Birdland work days.

After working out there mowing Sunday, my legs from the knees down were completely covered with cling tights-beggars lice-hitchhikers-burrs, whatever they are called.

But then Monday, during league, I never strayed off the fairways all round, and only found 2 burrs. So, the moral of the story is, if you stay in the short stuff, your socks don't get ruined.

Speaking of work.....Sunday around 11:00 there will be some guys and girls with weedeaters, loppers, mowers, out at Birdland doing a little grooming. We'll prolly be starting on 10, then 11, then 14, 15, 16, 17. Bring your weedeaters, mowers, chain saws and be ready to work a bit ( couple hours?), and then maybe play a round.

I'm not attending tonight, but the weather is fine for play.

Summer Leagues / Re: What's going on with the lack of information?

I used the think it might be nice to get paid entry into the league, for running league. The more I've thought about it though, I don't thnk ANY incentives should be made available to the league directors. In my opinion, the folks that volunteer and do things for the Club and for the greater Disc Golf good aren't doing it for stuff.
I also think making the work seem more attractive by offering perks won't draw "better" volunteers, only greedier ones.  :)

Just go to Wyco Friday league. It is a really cool KCFDC league. There is also the Legacy league, which is also cool. Both are KCFDC leagues with established ACE funds and volunteer league directors.

Fourteen out on a SUPER humid evening with temps in the 80s, which also featured a new course singles record being set by Tank, and the worlds largest collection of cling tights. No ticks reported however.

To prevent the elusive sub-50 round being shot, look for newer, more difficult pin settings in the next week or two.... ;D

No ACE was hit, so with all in the fund increases to $130.

OPEN (fourteen)

Ken "Tank" Franks          50 for $15
Kevin Zane                      55 for $10
Andy Lewis                      56 for $8
Matt Jenkins                    57 for $4.50
Bryce Williams                 57 for $4.50
Bryan Guthrie                  59
Peter Bures                     59
Bryan Taylor                    59
John Benedict                  59
Tom Butler                       61
Brian Corneilius               61
Shannan Carson             63
Chris Eggers                   66
Mark Albers                     68

Next week, WE TEE OFF AT 5:30. Please be signed up by 5:20. Come on out and get familar with this tract if you are playin the Old Settlers, cause you don't want to come into Birdland blind.  ;D

Yes, we migrate to Birdland tomorrow. With the daylight decreasing we need to be on tee at 6:00 sharp, so please get signed up no later than 5:45.

Next Monday (8-12-13), we will roll back tee time to 5:30.

Birdland has pads!  Be there next week!

No ACE was hit so with all 4 in the fund grows to $388.

As of now, there is only 1 spot remaining in the Adv Mens (MA1) and 2 spots in the Recreational Men (MA3).  All the other divisions are full.  If you want to get on the waiting list, please let me know.  I will be posting and emailing a detailed agenda for this weekend so everyone is ready for Saturday.

As a side note, Rosedale has two other events going on on Saturday so parking will be extremely limited.  I highly recommend car-pooling if possible.

Meanwhile, Wyco will be totally empty of people and have virtually unlimited parking, as will, Cliff, SMP, PC, and Birdland.  ::)
