Old Pike / Re: Hours?
« on: April 24, 2012, 10:58:26 AM »
Tom, Tom Tom.  No secret society.  The secret old men's league is a Rosedale thing; not Old Pike.  And that stops once the vernal equinox hits. 

Regarding Old Pike, every Tuesday is doubles open to the public.  Last week:  24 players including Katrina and Ulibari; so, you never know who will show up.  Prior week, Tank brought the putting champ, Jay Reading.  And, there are typically Dynamic Disc giveaways and sometimes other contests. 

You know most of the disc members (mostly old KCFDC members.  We would love to have you for a member.  You are also welcome to try out the course if you haven't played it.  Just let me know when you plan to play and your vehicle information.    I typically don't check the message board and can't get personal e-mails during the day.  But, if you send me your information off line, I can let the General Manager know when you plan to play and it will all be good. 

Come out tonight if you can.  Mike T.

Old Pike / Old Pike Membership Drive
« on: March 12, 2012, 09:51:20 PM »
With the additional hour of daylight, we are keeping the 6:00 start for Tuesday Old Pike Doubles.  And, we are also starting up the membership drive to get some funds in to get the course in shape for summer play and for the first annual Sharks in the Water Tournament.  Please renew your membership or start a new one, sponsor a hole, or adopt a hole.   $50 a year and payment plans are available if that is an isssue. 

To this point, 100% of all league funds and membership dues have gone to course improvements, and we were finally able to get all 18 + tee pads.  We have more benches and tee signs on the way.

My hope is that we can have a great turnout for the Sharks in the Water Tournament to provide some funds to the KCFDC and some to Old Pike Country Club, who has graciously let us turn the vanilla 9 hole course in to a fun and challenging 18 hole course.

Thanks for your support. And, thanks to our sponsors, contributors and members who are largely comprised of KCFC members.

Fantastic Logo!  I had a blast last at the Cookie Cutter Classic last year even though it rained most of the time and we had to cancel the cannonball contest due to lightning!  This is going to be a great event!   

At Old Pike, I hope to have benches, tee signs, a couple new pin settings and have the course in tip top shape for the camp out. 

We will need to have work days at both courses.

Sam,  Welcome to KC!  You will find no shortage of players at Rosedale.  And, virtually anyone will be willing to show you the courses.  Rosedale is the most heavily played and the most social course in Kansas City! 

If you are looking for a competitive round, Saturday at 12:30 Rosedale down under doubles league.  Dr. Jay, the league master, is out of town; but, I am sure he will find someone to run league.

Smithville / New Course Record
« on: January 23, 2012, 08:58:56 AM »
Come on Ted! Now is not the time to let your golf bag gather dust!    You can regain your pride at Old Pike tomorrow night! 

If it makes you feel any better, I shot an 84 yesterday and that is my personal  worst.  But, it also must be some sort of new course record since Dan said it was the first time anyone every played the 27 hole shoreline drive layout!  What a fun mix of all the courses! 

You are going to have league next week during the ice bowl?

How long can we procratinate?  Are the tourney dates listed on the KCFDC message board or on the DD website?  I know its likely on the PDGA website; but, that seems to be the slowest website known to man.

General Banter / Friday Nite Lites
« on: December 16, 2011, 12:00:03 PM »
Friday nite lites 6:00 random draw doubles at Old Pike.  Same as the league format:  $6 entry and $2 optional ace/CTP.  Should be a good group.  We have East siders, north siders, and possible south siders representing.  There might even be Beckett and Booger sightings.  We also have some West side representation; but, that side is a little thin given the holidays and Mike D's kwansa celebration, which we all have to respect.  Come on out and warm your cockels by the fire! 

What do you mean what is a cockel?  It is either a clam like mollusk or a chamber of your heart.  Either way I am not sure it makes a lot of sense.

Finally, the launch pads are poured at Old Pike!  Thanks, so much for all who helped!   Special thanks to:  Dan Cashen , Mike D, Dog Fila, Amanda Jackson, Teddy K., Bill and Matt Neenon, Billy Nelson, Bobby V., Caleb Walker, Kelly Warren, and Dave Z.    Sorry if I missed anyone. 

Of course, there is still more work to be done:  additional pin settings, signs, a few more benches etc.  And, Ted is still planning his custom hand crafted tee pad for the cookie cutter.  More progress on the way . . .   and that doesn't even count Jami Danger and his tennis ball disc basket.  Come out Tuesday nite and play the new pads!

Old Pike / Tee Pads
« on: October 20, 2011, 06:52:58 AM »
The plan is on for pouring tee the rest of the pads this Saturday.  I hope we can pour ten pads.  Early Saturday morning, Dan Cashen will be working a bobcat to level the playing surface and we will need to get the pad frames level so we can pour at 12:30.   

We will also be using the bobcat to clear dead trees; so, Friends of Old Pike, we can use your help in a variety of ways. 

Come on out and help for a little before during or after Saturday Rosdedale down under league.  Jay R. turned 50 yesterday; so, if you play down under on Saturday, he will insist that you refer to him as Grand Master Jay!

Bring the carts if you want.  Should not be an issue as long as you don't flip it over or run it into the pond.

Two micro burst type events within a few weeks has left a lot of limbs in the fairways.  We need to pick up sticks/limbs to make the course more presentable for the tournament.  Let's shoot for a mini work day on Monday at 10:00.  The weather should be cool.  Let's work for a couple of hours and get the fire wood ready for the camp out!   

Might also spend some time working on Sunday afternoon if that works better for some folks.

Yesterday's storm was devastating to the course and there is a lot of work to be done to make it reasonable to play by Tuesday.  There are large trees/major branches down on 10, 13, 14, and 15.  Ted, Kevin, P3, and tried to play through the debris; but, there is major tree obstruction.  We could use help getting the limbs out of the way.   The grill is bent with a tree sitting on it still, the knotty tree was ripped in half and now is just plain knotty and no tree, and it is in the cookie cutter fairway. . .

General Banter / Re: 2011 Weekly League Schedule
« on: July 11, 2011, 09:23:59 AM »
Our informal Tuesday night hot dog doubles at Old Pike is not an official league and we do not want to detract from the club leagues.  But, this week (July 12th), we plan to have Tuesday night random draw doubles at Water Works since there is a swim meet at Old Pike.  Like last time, we will give the KCFDC any funds not paid out to the players.  Not sure whether Kevin will be cooking a victory dinner for the winners; but, it almost seems too hot.

Old Pike / Re: Hot dog doubles tonight at old pike.
« on: June 01, 2011, 07:05:41 PM »

June 7th, there will be no hot dog doubles.  They had to re-schedule a swim meet and will be parking in some of the fairways.  This should be the only conflict of the year and we may get a round going another day if there is interest.
