Next Meeting November 18th, 2009
« on: November 15, 2009, 07:21:38 PM »
I meet with the Deputy Park Director Mike on Wednesday, Nov 18, at 10:30 am, to discuss ideas on finalizing a budget request to the County.

I will report back here the results of this meeting.

Meet with the park people today and recieved some good news. They are offering 3 chunks of land that fit our criteria as possible locations for the big boy course...decisions, decisions, decisions!

I brought up the idea that any designers from the club want might want to take a stab at designing the could look at the photos of the land when they are available, visit the land with me as your tour guide, then submit design proposals based on that. They liked the concept and understand that we must use a designer and not try to go at this alone.

The winning designer would be compensated and would work with me and the Clay Co Park people in bringing this course into fruition.
Some of the land I wanted is in crop lease until 2011 and 2012 but they think they can do some trading with the farmers...take this 40 acres here and give them another 40 somewhere else.

Interested parties should PM me and we will set up a time to meet at the land, go over the photos and turn you loose on your proposals.

Timelime for your initial proposal would need to be close to Dec 15th to Dec 31, 2009. I need to have things semi-finalized for our proposal to the Park Board sometime in early January.

Another interesting concept came out of this meeting- They asked if it was possible to build t-boxes out as asphalt?

Anyone?


Also- Does the club have any type of liability insurance?

Everyone at the park department seems stoked on making this happen and the park board people are starting to ask all kinds of questions leading us to believe were getting closer folks...real close!

Frontier Park in Hays used to have asphalt tee pads. Not as good as concrete IMO, but they work. Asphalt will probably cost less, but concrete should last longer.

Thanks for the feedback. I've heard similiar grumblings about the asphalt.

It's an easy process sir...here are the 3 steps I would recommend-

1. Don't be a Dick! (Dick!)

2. Look and fully understand the maps and provided materials when available. Would help if you or any applicant, had a complete understanding of current design standards, saftey standards, land utilizing concepts, insurance risks and policies, etc...

3. Be willing and prepared to "shock & awe" the disc golf world as we know it kind sir.

What could be any more easy or more fun sir?

PS- No one is going to retire from this but you again...shall be compensated Terms of that to become avalable once they become available.
