Found and Lost / Found: Grey hoodie at Swope

Water Works / Lights going in
« on: February 26, 2008, 09:20:23 PM »
Stopped by WW to post Leap Daze tourney for this Sunday at Rosy

They are installing 5 new lights, 4 at the main turn in to the roundabout and one at the playground.
This should be excellent for the picnic table checkin area and illuminating gay sex.. I always thought this would be a better park for lesbians, but maybe that is just me.

Progress but slow it is still progress. Next. PeePee/Poopoo. Take out what you bring in.

Swope report 3/30/07

Ah the sweet smell of growing grass, budding leaves and flowers.
Swope has finally blossomed. It appears the plantings done last fall survived the winter and are growing.
Next will be when the work and play begins.
The parks will be berming the far hillside for hole 7. This is to use the old dirt hills on the back road and to elevate that area for a new pin placement. This is also underway for hole 12.
The Pro Shop will be touched up with paint, some which did not take
from the overhaul last year.
The P&R storage area has been cleaned up thanks to Dan Cashen, now we can see what we have.
I have been getting in peoples faces about joining and/or helping with upcoming events. The response has been favorable.
League has had good attendance. Kevin Corbett will be working in Branson the next three months.
Conversations will soon be underway about the standing water on the back road. Restrooms are another issue.
Trash is under control with the help of the Swope Love Society.
We are pulling the stuff together for the remaining tee signs.

Swope / Swope course report 1/3/07

January 3, 2007

I missed the Chain Mail issue release. So I am right on schedule.
A new year dawns on Swope Park Disc Golf Course. In the ground pushing 30 years it has undergone major transformations over the duration.
I think it is in the best condition ever. I would know, this is my 27th year.
Thanks to Dan Cashen for having the vision and werewithal to move dirt, plant grass, upgrade the facilities and closely work with the Parks & Rec crew for the past umpteen years.
I will try to continue the tradition.
The Pro Shop was painted last summer, many thanks to Patrick Smith and his crew.
There are new plantings around the Pro Shop and  10. The leaves were mulched recently.
Many trees were cut down last year. I will be working with P&R on new plantings. I trimmed many low branches this fall.
Some of the multitude of pin placements have been reduced and will follow a color coded order in regards to distance.
I have also developed a readable map that will be in the magazine rack. The goal is to have the color indicator for the daily basket location on each tee sign. Sweet.
Look out for the Swope Love Society (SLS) crew that we have formed to take care of the mundane tasks of moving baskets, trash duty and general maintenance.
They are Mark and James Arnold, Shaun Eller, Nathan Fishback, Dan Coffman and myself. Anybody else who wants to join, just give me call. Thanks to Dan Coffman for posting pin movements already.
I have been out of commission for the last month, recovering from a Swope Park stunt in the early December snow. Mating trees is hard on the pelvis of an old man, especially on a reluctant elm, but it did'nt stop me from trying. But I am ready to get out and blast some plastic. I hope to kill the tree that almost killed me.
There is a new lock on the Pro Shop. If you need in let me know and a representative of the SLS will coordinate. Currently there is no sales product there.
I have not confirmed League Runner, but will advise. Come on out and play where you can hear seals barking in the distance, or maybe a good band. Remember daylight savings time start early this year, March 11 and ends in early November.

The course has been recently mowed and is gorgeous for late August.
Time to move the baskets.

Swope / Swope damage
« on: May 09, 2005, 12:25:01 PM »
Anybody that knows me , knows that I am a doer not a whiner....however....
The damage done by careless mowing to the grounds and trees this week at Swope has to be addressed.
What I saw was: 40+ trees with major and minor damage to the bases and even upper trunks.
This will cause the trees to get bugs and diseases, (Duh)
I saw hundreds of  ground ruts due to carelessness of the driver due to excessive speed and inattention, and poor training of equipment of equipment usage. It actually looked like the place was plowed.
In the past I have seen the mowers race through the course with reckless abandon. The supervisory staff of Swopes mowing department must understand it is their domain to treat our little corner at the same level as they do the rest of the park.
