Why doesn't the club organize committees to handle certain jurisdictions? That way people are responsible for their backyard.
You are the CLUB, why aren't you organizing this? There are over 300 active paid members, and yet only a handful actually do the work. This is the problem as I see it, and I for one am tired of asking for help only to have my friends and myself work the land. You wanna know how many club members actually came out to help clean up........less than 1/2 were active members, some were expired members, and many were just friends of mine because they know how I love the course so.
So the issue stands why should I engage my friends to help at disc golf courses, when club members don't show the support for the courses that they should. Every club member should be spending at least 10 hours a year in a park helping to clean it. Dedicated time, not playing and picking up trash (though you who do that are awesome, please don't stop).
I am at this point tired of reading about New courses when we can't maintain existing ones.
Here is the deal. We agree as an organization to help clean and maintain the parks we have courses in. Rob's mentality is completely false in "
I'm willing to work at Cliff when Kansas City, MO actually proactively does something to prevent it from being a sh!t hole for the local population.
That is problem one. Not accepting that we agreed to help, and guess what, this isn't a suburban landscape. It is A THOUSAND times better than when we started. It is MAINTENANCE in keeping it looking better, and yes ILLEGAL dumping happens out here and we have to pick up from the tweakers, the hookers, the hispanics, the white red neck arses, the idiot disc golfers that break bottles, the irresponsible immigrant that doesn't know any better.
Ultimately though it is but a few that step up. So when I post a note asking if anyone is interested in helping EXPAND cliff......crickets. So %$#@ it, I am telling the city to pull it. I am also going to be telling the city to move to a pay to play disc golf environment, because though you pay dues to be a club member, the time has come that you must do more because our sport has grown, and the courses are in crappy shape and nothing is being done.
Start to pay to play and maybe we can replace trees easier than having events with 43 people coming out to "I love that course" how can I help....
It is quite simple, we aren't engaged as we should be as an organization and as stewards to the land. We don't deserve Cliff Drive, its not the city that doesn't deserve it is the disc golfers that ignore the work it takes to make it better that don't deserve it.
