General Banter / injury riddled for quite awhile
« on: July 26, 2008, 11:54:33 am »
man i've had some crap happening alot this past year or so.
first i think my rotator cuff has been messed up for awhile so i lay off disc golf alot when  its bugging me. then my foot got a really bad planters wart on it, more disc golf layoff time. then when  i was off work and not playing due to that i decided to go out to branson w/ my girlfriend. bad idea. i saw a segway track where they allow you to ride a segway and purchase them. they looked fun  till the darn thing started going backwards on me a few times and eventually it causes you to lose your balance trying to right it if you adjust incorrectly. yep, you guessed it. another freakin injury. this time i broke the radial head in my elbow on  my non throwing arm, possibly cracked the sternum area and possible slight concussion. so here i was already off work for the foot cause i could not put my steel toed boots on unless i used crutches or a wheelchair and then this happens.
i can't help trying to make up for all the stuff i missed out on as a kid!! thats what happens when you grow up in a large family!!
the ER doc said i had serious problems!! wondering why i would be trying something slightly risky just after my foot being cut on and barely able to walk on it.
i guess i'm a hazard to my own health
might be till the winter before i play now. that really sucks.

Rosedale / huge sinkhole
« on: June 05, 2008, 11:02:35 pm »
i reported the large sinkhole that is about 53 yards west/ southwest of the gazebo to the wyandotte county parks maintanance department. its directly south of the trees for the long 9 basket placement. i got a call back thursday about 4pm that there will be somebody there from the department at the park friday morning to assess the unsafe condition. its big enough that one of the tractors they cut grass with can fall in. so everyone be careful out there.
i noticed it saturday but have been sidetracked getting it reported.

This challenge is for anyone who I consider in my competitive range. Bag tags are up for grabs along with the cash.
I'm sporting #103!! Come get some if you can!!
See ya there

Winter Leagues / BRING BACK HOMIE!!!!!!
« on: May 14, 2008, 12:15:23 am »
I am starting a posse to search for and locate the Homer Simpson doll being held hostage.
Anyone interested in joining my posse please leave a message here.
Maybe if the cuplrit sees enough interest in bringing back Homey that Homey will  again be in play!!!
If you need to just resign the doll do so. Just bring him to the picnic w/$25 or play the $1 $kin$ on either the top or bottom on Rosedale.
If you resign the doll I will play down under for Homey for the $1 $kin$ or the group can vote on which course.
Plus i am having a bagtag challenge along with it.
BTW its 20 holes -plus $5 best score overall!!
So if you don't win anything it will cost you an additional $25 to play this...
Bring some dollar bills people!!!

Shawnee Mission / Day of Caring project June 7th
« on: April 21, 2008, 05:15:33 pm »
I have information pertaining to a clean-up day  at the park. It will be June 7th. i am guessing fairly early start time.
This is a community wide organized effort that several companies such as mine are involved in along with non profit organizations.
The exact project consists of clean-up of trash and debris that comes from external sources into the stream and lake at Shawnee Mission Park. Project may not last all day; volunteers work as long as they want. Not sure of the exact location of the park getting the attention but i think a show of enthusiastic disc golfers would be awesome.
I was told all volunteers are invited to a community picnic.
Call if you are interested or just show up.

« on: March 25, 2008, 05:25:13 pm »
I was informed to let people know on this site that John Buckle is doing some tee pad work on Saturday morning March 29th on the Down Under course. We need volunteers with shovels, rakes, 5 or 10 lb. buckets and a couple Gator type ATV's with the bed. Call John Buckle @ 913-485-5289 to inform what you can help with.

General Banter / Weekend summer leagues

Another thing we used to have was weekend summer leagues.

Bag Tags / 2008 Bag Tags
« on: December 08, 2007, 02:04:46 pm »
What are the new tags going to be made of ?
The 2007 tags I saw that were actually in play more than others had become chipped or broken. Either they were dropped hard or stepped on accidently???
I'm not sure if we can beef the material up or come up with a different type tag.  Any ideas anyone?
I read last years post and found the leather patches intriguing since we were known as a cow town plus for better wear and tear.

Winter Leagues / Winter League on Saturday????
« on: September 16, 2007, 07:46:55 pm »
I was curious when the Down Under doubles starts. My schedule keeps me from playing league during the week.

I am employed for Kelloggs Snacks division. Recently the company was given expense money for a company picnic. I proposed sponsoring a putting and CTP competion at the picnic and won the bid to put it on. Jack Lowe and Mark Morales has agreed to help me with this endeavor to promote disc golf and The Kansas City Flying Disc Club. I hope to be handing out info about the sport and the club to the employees and relatives. I think that this is one of several great opportunities to promote our sport and club. The picnic is being held on Oct 13 at the EH Young park by Argosy Casino and is running from 11am till 5pm. Employees of the company and their guests are invited to attend. The company is also inviting the KCK mayor and KCMO mayor plus the surrounding police departments and fire departments so this is a huge way to spread the word about our efforts to bring the family back to the parks.

Winter Leagues / Homie league
« on: November 12, 2006, 08:54:24 am »
Due to extenuating circumstances I have been unable to host homie for a couple weeks. To those who have shown up to play, I apologize for my absence. Next Sunday at Rosedale Down Under I will host the next league. That will be Nov. 19th @ 9am Sunday morning. I hope to have a big enough turnout that it will be a doubles league so this is a call to arms for those willing to share a piece of the pot with someone thay have never played with before. So to those too scared to play because the pros have been there, fear not so we can have a good turnout. I hope to see at least 10 players.
Thanks for anyone interested showing up.

General Banter / New park in Lees Summit in planning stages for disc golf
« on: September 10, 2006, 04:03:38 pm »
I read in the paper earlier this week about a memorial park for a firefighter that will include a disc golf course and am curious if there are any people on this site that live near that area. I would like us to get involved in the planning of the layout. My guess is get in touch with parks and rec and go to the city council meetings to find out where the park is being planned and if we can get involved in some way.
