The other big issue from the KCFDC view is we already have excellent partnerships with disc retailers here in KC. I didn't make a lot of sense with all the other ways to go out and buy discs in KC. But hey, if the membership wants to explore it again, then a volunteer should take a look at the ups/downs/strengths, and so on of it.

One other thing, in KCMO the KCFDC pays a percentage of "in park" income to the city of KCMO per our agreement with P&R.

I'm going to say this as somebody who has worked in social services for quite some time: Food is not as much the issue as toiletries. If we wanted to do a drive on top of the standard Ice Bowl event we should focus on things that you can't buy with food assistance. Toilet paper, tooth brushes, tooth paste, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, wash rags, feminine hygiene products, razors, laundry detergent, dryer sheets, coffee filters (you can buy coffee, just not filters), deoderant, and other things of that nature.

I'm not recommending we change anything, just letting you know what frustrations I've seen when helping individuals access food pantries. These are the extras that people ask for and only occasionally receive. I'm sure there are others that I haven't mentioned.

Yeah, so all i have to do is click "Support" and give the relative info and you get donations from Verizon. Pretty simple...and Free. Do it people! (and i would do it for an MU team as well, as long as it was Disc Golf....)

First off, apologies to all for the confusion around drawing cards for teams last week. Won't happen again.

Meet by #9 Down Under 12:30-12:45. $10/per person. We will draw cards for teams at 12:50. Tee 1:00.

Once cards are drawn, entry is officially closed. I hate to turn people away ($10 is well.... $10), but have had to several times the last couple years. 1st and best option is to be there on time. 2nd option is to get in touch with me prior to cards being drawn and we will draw for you. 3rd option is to refer back to the 1st option.

Alrighty then, Kevin Corbett aced #8 last week for $145 which will be paid in full today. That shot (with Dave Z as his partner) broke a tie with Joe H and Das Loomis who took 2nd in a tightly bunched field. Today will be a different layout with some alternate pads. Weather looks to be damp but rain holding off until tonight and tomorrow.

$240 (24x10) = $192 payout = $90/$50/$30/$22
                          $24 Ace fund +$266 carried=$290/2=$145 to Kevin
                          $24 Club

$1 feeds 4 people while a can a food barely feeds 1 person. Also, it takes man hours to deal with the food when it comes in and that costs money. So we have decided to only donate money as it is more useful when feeding the hungry. I'm sure others can elaborate more on the subject but this is what most food pantries will tell you when you talk to them about it.
