General Banter / Range Finder anyone???

I've actually heard those can be more accutrate than a range finder if you do it right. I don't have access to one though.

Check with Rick and John. Soemone has one. I used it last year at WyCo. I think it may be the club's. Maybe someone can get it to you tonight at the meeting.

I want to shoot the distances of some holes at WyCo this wekeend but I think Mark Arnold is going to bring his range finder out and do it.

WYCO / WyCo Workday - this Saturday - 2/25
« on: February 20, 2006, 11:39:18 AM »
We'll be having a workday this Saturday, 2/25. I plan to be there by 9:30 to get started. This will be to get the course ready for the Kan-U-WyCo that will be happening the Following Saturday, 3/4.

Items I'd like to accomplish:

 :arrow: Clear out area on #7 for short pin and get it planted.
 :arrow: Repair or replace some of the old rotten benches Mike and I made.
 :arrow: Replace the pin on #4 original that got knocked out by a mower.
 :arrow: Remove the funky tee-signs, not the signs themselves but the printed diagrams that I made and don't all look right.
 :arrow: Hopefully replace those signs with better ones.
 :arrow: Get the range finder and shoot the distances of the pins I don't have yet, only a few.
 :arrow: Repair #17 long placement that got knocked loose.
 :arrow: And finally, move the course all long for the first round of the tourney.  :twisted:

If you can make it out please do. I can use the help. I'll have my truck to haul things around and I should have most of the tools we'll need to do what's listed but if you have tools you want to bring that would be helpful. If you have questions just let me know here or call me - 816-830-0974

I know KC is considered a cow town but that's ridiculous.....  It might be kinda fun but shouldn't it have at least a little cool factor?

I like the stainless steel one best but I defer to the at large board for input.

WYCO / P&R's been busy

I just got off the phone with the new guy at Wyandotte County Park, John Bower. He is the one directing the cleanup effort going on and he is Disc Golf Friendly!

He says they have some new equipment for mowing and intends to keep the park manicured at all times from now on with a seven to ten day mowing cycle (depending on weather as always). He is mindful of the obstacles we like to have in place having come from another parks department with a disc golf course. What they are doing right now is going to benefit the course in the long run for sure.

 Work day February 25th and possbly the 26th as well. Depends up the weather a little bit. Whichever proves to be the best day is when the bulk of the work will get done. More info to come including a list of proposed tasks to be completed in a formal workday post here and on Topica.

There are two schools of thought on this. On the one hand it will make a couple of the holes a little easier. On the other hand it will clean up some nasty underbrush, poison ivy and piles of rotting logs and limbs that were unsafe to land in. It's a give and take but I think in the long run it will make for better golfing all the way around. The main thing is that they left all of the trees in the areas they are cleaning up and just took the nasty growth beneath, unlike what they did to the pond a few years back, which really did change the hole for the worse.

Yes, yes!  I saw this yesterday too. The mess in #17 fairway is now gone! I'm considering a short pin placement in the woods there now. Also, the tress off the pad on #4 that had the jungle growing around them are now just trees. They also trimmed a lot of the shaggier looking trees around the course. Looking good....

Yes, indeed. 1994 was the first year PC was used in the Wide Open. My first year on staff, spotting and assistant TD with Ned Smethers.

Thanks to Tom Butler for making up a cool flyer for the Kan-U-WyCo

Print some out and give them to your friends or post them at your local course.

General Banter / New Course coming to Ottawa
« on: February 01, 2006, 09:11:59 AM »
Have you posted anything on the KDGA board yet?

Maybe you could have an event later in the season to introduce the course.

I'll plan to make a day of it this spring to play Pomona and then Ottawa. That should make for a nice day trip.

Make sure you post directions to the course.

Tournaments / Kudos!

Kudos to Rick Rothstein, Jack Lowe, Dan Cashen, John Chapman and all of the other volunteers (there were lots of you I know) that made yesterday's HUGE Ice Bowl a truly enjoyable experience.

Of course, the weather was a big bonus and kept the list of wimps and whiners to nearly zero I expect.

233 participants was the count reported and even though I don't know the exact number it looked like at least half of that number played both rounds. All 36 holes at Rosedale were populated for the nine hole second round. At four per hole that's 144 die hard disc golfers.

A big congratulations to the new Ice Bowl Champion - Brad Merys!! Brad's name will now forever grace the traveling ice bucket trophy.

Also, what would the Ice Bowl be without the chili? There were no less than 17 entries in the chili cook-off. While my chili scored a solid 15, dead center of the scoring along with many others, the winner was Chris (someone get his last name?) with a score of 24. The scoring was done by blind taste testing by three judges. The chili was rated on a scale of 1-10  and the scores totaled. That means Chris's chili averaged an impressive 8. Nicely done. I wish I would have gotten a taste.

We shattered our goal of 200 players and I'll bet we easily surpassed our goal for donations to Bishop Sullivan Center. I expect the final totals will be posted by those with the numbers when they get a chance.

Bravo to the KC crew for a record setting Ice Bowl!!!!!

Scroll down until you see the number 15 on the left then hover your cursor over it. You will see Disc golf course on the list. This is apparently in the "master plan" for Heritage Park.
