We need to stand up and voice our concerns to protect Wilbur due to a possible road through the middle of the course.  Any road through the course will destroy the integrity of the design.  We are utilizing around 14 acres of land when you remove the big pond and land south of pond up the hill. There is no room for any road or new entrance off AA road.  Young is so tight and crammed already that any road coming from AA would significantly alter the course and  effects holes 4 and 5  , cut through hole 13 (where is that hole gonna go?) lose lots of 18, likely pushing 17 tee forward, cutting into hole 16 basket placements, and the road would likely alter 12's tee,  and 11's fairway.

Tomorrow the park workers are brush hogging several areas of limbs that i dropped and will be cleaning up  some overgrown areas as well.

Plus they will be installing obstacles in place of the trees lost on hole 3, 9, and 12.

Love these guys.   

Park looks great now but  will be show case ready by Tuesday.

Met with the park workers last week.  we plan on replacing the lost tree on #3 and lost trees on #9.  Hoping to bring those shorter holes back to the integrity of the original design.

Where will the old baskets be stored for us to pick up?

Is there a certain day and time to make it easier for those who are watching over the baskets to make it easier?

Tournaments / Re: 2019 Ice Bowl
« on: January 28, 2019, 12:11:36 PM »
Thanks to all those volunteers and the KCFDC board that made the Ice Bowl a success.  I loved the course that i got to play.  Lots of work i am sure for the layout configuration and temp baskets.  So much fun to play BV and we had great score deviation on all the holes.  Such an amazing piece of  property and I am thankful that we have such a great resource at our disposal.  We are very lucky here in KC. 

I was not sure i was going to get to play because my wife is 9 months pregnant and due any moment but I asked any way risking the possible wraith of a pregnant woman .   So i didn't sign up in case we had the baby,  but baby boy wasn't ready and i was excited to get out and donate (so i was that "annoying guy" breaking all the rules wanting to play and jumping on a card...sorry and thanks for bearing with me ).

Thanks KCFDC,


Fox Hill Elementary / concrete tees coming soon
« on: October 16, 2018, 03:58:24 PM »
Bill Lentz, Fox Hill pe teacher secured the funds for concrete tees. He is still hoping to replace the baskets in the future as well but concrete tees are a more pressing issue and happening very soon.  He secured the concrete for 65 a yard which is unheard of so we need to make these pours as easy as possible on the drivers and company. Many folks know that LaRon Harris has taken great interest and assembled a strong group of volunteers to help maintain the course and take some of the load off Coach Lentz.  With these new improvements Fox Hill needs some more energy.  We need...

-someone to donate their skid loader to dig out tee pads
-Plus a couple folks that could help frame up boxes
-and a couple finishers

or just more strong backs that would like help and possibly help move concrete in wheelbarrows when needed

For more info, contact LaRon Harris.

Look here for updates.

Liberty, MO - Stocksdale Park / Parker workers tragic accident
« on: September 30, 2018, 04:35:20 PM »
Liberty parks and rec suffered a terrible loss this past week. Two workers were involved in a horrific train accident.

One worker was killed.  I did not have a relationship with Cameron but knew of him. The other worker is Tom Shadid and he is a great worker and friend to the disc golf community. Tom is cat like and survived a massive heart attack a couple years ago and now survived a terrible accident.  I am thankful Tom was able to survive but very saddened by the news of Cameron dying so early in life.

General Banter / Ice Bowl and Swope send off
« on: January 29, 2018, 10:32:17 AM »
What a fantastic day of golf.  Tough pill to swallow losing Swope but it was a great way to say good bye.  Glad I was able to be at the last event.  Thanks to everyone that made it enjoyable.  So much energy and love invested on that land.

I was thinking of all the younger golfers that i saw out.  One day they will be the ones telling the  stories of  old Swope while many of us may no longer be around/able to share that history.

Is there any news on Fox?  I have heard different things and I am not on Facebook.   Please post details if there is any way to help him if he is  still alive-food, donations etc

Juniors Disc Golf / July 5th kids clinic KCPAL- near Blue Valley
« on: June 28, 2017, 08:08:11 PM »
Kansas City Police Athletic League is a community  center 2 blocks from  Blue Valley.   I will be hosting a disc golf youth clinic on July 5th.  One of their board members is responsible for all the donations that made Fox Hill happen. A lot of big things have been happening there and it is a great place for kids.

As of now it is a one day clinic. We split it up into 2 groups.  It might turn into another day if there is enough interest.  I believe we will have around 50 kids in each session.  So that is more than i am used to in my classroom setting and could use some help.

PM if you would like more details.  DD is supporting the event as well.
