Call for Disc Golf Course Designers
« on: November 19, 2009, 06:50:24 AM »
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 as possible. I need to have things semi-finalized for our proposal to the Park Board sometime in early January.

So you're sitting there going am I pretty enough...do people like me?

How ever could a person like me ever design a disc golf course...


The answer is simple...

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

1. Have the ability to play nice with others.

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.

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.

CORRECTION- They are offering 4 chucks of land that fit our criteria.

They have even mentioned that maybe, one day, we could have multiple courses at Smithville...each with their own uniqueness and personality.

How freakin' cool would that be?

Can these maps be provided in either AutoCad (.dwg format) or Microstation (.dgn format) ?
As a civil/structural designer with 28 years experience and over 20 years of disc golf experience I believe I can do a good job designing a course, but would prefer to work with CAD files for ease in scaleability and coordinates.

Sorry for the delay in making maps available.

I am almost done but need to send them back to the Park to make sure I’ve interpreted the available land correctly.....

Stand by ladies and gents...we are almost there.

OK Ladies and Gents,

After reviewing the 4 pieces of land and the ag leases that accompany each one, we have decided to pull the other 3 off the table for the time being.

85 Acres on the South side of the lake...WOW!!!

Paradise Point we can call it! (18-36-54-72 Baskets in Paradise)

The Map can be downloaded by going here- http://www.danweinert.com/downloads/Proposed%20Smithville%20DG%20Maps_Rev1.pdf

A Google Earth Map coordinate link can be downloaded by going here- http://www.danweinert.com/downloads/Paradise_Point_Disc_Golf_Entrance.zip

Coordinates for the entrance are-  Lat-  39°25'8.92"N, Long-  94°33'18.52"W (RED dot on Map)

This area has all the goodies we asked for...parking, water, trees, open, terrain changes, mowed frequently, etc...

Be sure to stay out of the Beach Area and the Harbor View Neighborhood areas when laying out this course!!

All designers who want to meet me at the land, be sure to check back here for dates when we can get together to do that. I will try to have a couple of times so if you miss one you might be able to make the second one.

Disc Golf in Smithville...you can bet your sweet arse it's gonna happen!!

BIG TIME!!!

Here is a map showing more of the surrounding area- right next to the silly "ball" golf complex.

http://www.danweinert.com/downloads/Proposed_Smithville_DG_Map.jpg

This is prime land folks...we are lucky to say the least in getting a crack at this...best foot forward everyone!

REMEMBER-

1. Have the ability to play nice with others. (Dick Parker)  ;D

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.

That land is perfect! Good hills, some woods, everything you need for a couple of good courses! we along those roads at least once a week for cross country practice. I can't wait to be able to bring my discs and just play a quick round after practice  ;D    I'd love to come out and volunteer to help build the new course when that begins! Keep us posted Dan and Thanks for all the hard work!
Discs returned: 4

1st Official Walk through of Paradise!!!

Sunday, Dec 13th, 10:00 am SHARP!!!

Meet at the Toll Booth. If you arrive late and want to find us...call my cell at 816-812-6265 and I will tell you where we are at.

Directions are super easy...

Take 169N out of downtown (Broadway Bridge) to Smithville. Stay on 169N to 180th Street. Turn right and follow the signs to the Paradise Point Silly Ball Golf Course!

Come on into the Park (NOT the Ball Golf Course) and wait by the Toll Booth. (I'll be in the black truck)

Not sure what all we will get accomplished but it would be awesome to start thinking of our land...a couple of guys already have several hours of recon under their belt!

Hope to see you all there. If you miss Sunday...we will have 1 more official Walk through later in the week.
