Prairie Center / Highly recommended driver
« on: May 10, 2006, 10:02:01 PM »
I'm certainly no expert, but I've been having really good luck with a pro starfire.  It's overstable but easy to control, has a good glide.  I have a z-flash.  I've thrown some good drives with it, it's in really good shape.  Let me know if you want to buy it.  Later-Bob Hayett

General Banter / Wakarusa & disc golf
« on: May 10, 2006, 09:57:08 PM »
If I'm not mistaken, I believe there's a disc golf course in Clinton State Park.  If the Wakarusa festival is there you might be camping on a disc golf fairway, literally.  There's also quite a few good courses within an hour drive from there.  Centenial Park in Lawrence, Prairie Center Park in Olathe, Wyco Disc Golf Course in Bonner Springs, even the courses in Kansas City are not that far from the festival.  We have some of the favorite courses of top touring pros (Water Works for sure), you'll want to check out some of our courses.  I run the Monday league at Prairie Center Park in Olathe.  I'm sure you'll have a great time out here.  Later-Bob Hayett

General Banter / doubles league on weekends
« on: May 07, 2006, 11:15:13 PM »
I offered to run a doubles league and got very little response in favor of it.  Evrybody seemed to want a different format, and then it's true there's a lot of tournaments that will take players away from a potential doubles league on the weekend.  If I could could get a commitment from at least sixteen different people who would regularly show up, I think it might work.  Also, I would like for someone else to help me run the league, as I am also busy on weekends doing different things.  Anybody have any ideas?  Later-Bob Hayett

General Banter / park plan comments
« on: April 23, 2006, 11:40:34 AM »
I assume you're talking about Monticello Rd that is going to have a circle.  Lenexa Parks & Rec expects there to be a high usage for the new park, therefore they have to improve the roads.  The real purpose of this particular park is flood control.  Since this area of land is being utilized as flood control they may as well make a park out of it.  Disc golf was viewed as a favorable activity in the new park.  They didn't want soccer fileds, tennis courts, basketball courts, a swimming pool, etc.  It was a stroke of luck really that I found out about a Lenexa municipal meeting a number of years ago, where they were going to talk about a smaller proposed park right near my house.  At the meeting I found out about this new park.  We (Jake Carmack and myself) told the people attending the meeting about the advantages of disc golf.  I didn't hear anything about it until a few months ago.  Anyway, a new park with a disc golf course is MUCH BETTER than any strip mall or row of expensive homes.

General Banter / park plan disc golf course
« on: April 20, 2006, 12:05:06 AM »
The Lake Lenexa park plan certainly does not show the exact location of the future disc golf course, just an approximate location.  I anticipate the final course design to utilize the open field in the middle of the park, as well as a few holes just to the west of the main lake largest cove.  There could possibly be one or two tee shots over water, as well as many holes in the trees.  The elevation changes, a few longer open holes, and some very tight, technical wooded holes should make this a very fun, challenging and scenic course.  Lenexa Parks and Rec has plenty of money for the course.  Expect excellent tee pads, tee signs, the best baskets, benches, etc. to be utilized.  They want to make this a truly outstanding course, one that hopefully will attract experienced players and beginners alike.  We should be presenting a preliminary design within the next few weeks.   I'm looking forward to the next course in Johnson County.  Who knows, after this is in the ground, maybe other municipalities in Johnson County (Overland Park, Leawood,etc.) may contact us to put other courses in.

Tom's pneumonia apparently was brought on by legionaire's disease, an extremely rare bacterial infection that was first discovered in the 1970's.  Back then this was very often fatal, fortuneately Tom was diagnosed in time to get effective treatment.  It sounds like he will be out of the hospital by the end of the weekend.  I hope to have some time to visit him soon.  Later-Bob Hayett

I'm seeing all kinds of new faces at Prairie Center.  If you see new people, tell them about the KCFDC.  Tell them about the great tournaments coming up, especially the Wide Open.  Tell them about the leagues we have.  Hand out membership applications, if you don't have them call or visit disc golf world to get them.  Hand them out like candy.  We need new members, especially the younger players I'm seeing out there.   A lot of them don't even know there is a club.  The KCFDC in my opinion should have 500 members, not 200.  Look at all the great courses we have in town.  Who is chiefly responsible for these courses? The KCFDC.  Tell these new players this.  Tell them their membership helps us improve the courses.  Tell them the more members there are, the more volunteers there are, the more we can do to improve the courses.  Visit a busy course on a weekend and hand out applications, even an hour every month or every other month.  Later-Bob Hayett

General Banter / lake lenexa report
« on: April 14, 2006, 11:35:05 PM »
People can visit the park evenings and on weekends.  The dam is complete and the lake will slowly fill over the next eighteen months.  The new disc golf course will be one of the first things in the ground.  Dirk Hacker and I started marking a possible course layout last week, hopefully to be completed this weekend.  This is all very preliminary.  We have to work with a master plan map, and we don't know exactly where all the parking lots, trails, shelters, and other activities are going to exactly be.  I'm sure there's going to be a lot of tweaking towards a final course design.  Lenexa Parks & Rec is also going to bring in a pro course designer, and he might change everything around, who knows.  I like what I see so far.  Most of the holes will be like the Rosedale Down Under course, with five or six out in the open.  Although this won't be a long course, the final design should prove to be challenging and quite fun to play, as well as some holes being very scenic.  There's going to be some good elevation changes, and quite possibly a few shots over water, one of those in the woods!  This is all very exciting, since it will be the first course in Johnson County, other than Prairie Center.  I can see a K-7 tournament sometime in the near future (Prairie Center, Lake Lenexa, Wyco), as all three courses are very close to K-7.  I'm hoping by the end of the Summer to be playing this new course.  Later-Bob Hayett

General Banter / Lake Lenexa progress report
« on: March 30, 2006, 10:17:14 PM »
Dirk Hacker has come up with several interesting designs for courses.  We still have to check certain areas of the park to see where the property lines are and if there's enough land available for us around the dam.  There's a lot of construction going on in the park, so it's not a good idea to visit the park during the week (evenings and weekends are OK).  I believe we're going to end up with a short but challenging course with lots of wooded holes (like Rosedale Down Under) with lots of elevation changes.  Some of the sight lines are going to be wonderful.  The course should be in the ground by the end of the Summer.  We'll keep you informed of any further progress.

Prairie Center / league starts this Monday
« on: March 30, 2006, 10:09:12 PM »
Yet another season starts this Monday.  Ace fund is presently above $500.  As always we will have an open and am division, and masters if enough masters are present.  Yes, I will run the ams with handicaps as usual.  If you have not done so, come check out the new holes 12-16.  These are still a work in progress, more pin placements and tee pads will happen this year hopefully.  Hopefully we'll have the amazing run of no rain-outs on Monday night (just one in seven years!!!).  I'm looking forward to another great year, let's have FUN!!!   :D  :D  :D
