If you are unable to make it out for the Eastern Front tourney on May 23rd, here is the opportunity to show some appreciation to a tremendous parks and rec dept.  The Blue Springs Parks and Rec will have an official ribbon cutting event at 10 am on Saturday, May 22nd.   The parks and rec will be handing out free commemorative Buzzzes.  I have nothing but praise for their efforts and once again, they are going above and beyond by having some free plastic for those that come out. One DGA representative responded to me "I have never ever had a parks superintendant that has been so involved and interested in a project.  Roscoe has shown great interests and was extrememly thorough." 

 We hope to have a strong showing of support for a parks dept that has been an advocate for professional course installation.  We want to continue to build upon the great alliances that we have with several surrounding parks departments.   The KCFDC is proud to have an ally like the Blue Springs Parks and Rec, who value and listen to those with experience and knowledge of disc golf.  Please join us in a celebrating the grand opening of one more course, being added to the plethora of great courses in KC. 

The parks dept has mentioned that after the opening weekend, depending on the maturation of the new seed, that there is a possibility for the baskets to be pulled.  They want to ensure that new growth is strong enough to withstand foot traffic.  So.... this is your chance to SHOW YOUR SUPPORT TO A TREMENDOUS PARKS DEPT, GET A  FREE DISC, PLAY A NEW COURSE, AND INTERACT WITH SOME NEW PLAYERS.


Hope to see a  huge group of golfers May 22nd at 10 am.

John

John -

I am definetely going to try to get the day off from work for this event.  I am looking forward to seeing this beautiful course.  I have heard nothing but great things, and the times that I have driven by to walk it, I have been impressed.  Thanks for all your hard work on this course (as well as Yates)...I know it is going to be great.

Thanks to all who brought another quality course to the East side of KC.  I can't wait to play it on the 22nd!

In order to promote the Grand Opening Event on May 22nd, those who wish not to drive to DGW or pay online, i will be taking registrations on Saturday May 22nd.  I will also have an updated listed of participants.  The Grand Opening starts at 10 am on Saturday.  I would get there a little early, becuase we are anticipating a fairly large crowd.  There are  100 Buzzz and they will go to those that get there first.  If you come out for both days, you will get two commemorative discs, a shirt, a lunch, one raffle ticket (must be a KCFDC member) prizes include  XBOX, Zune, a couple baskets, and disc swag($3 for one ticket or $5 for two tickets). 

Hope to see a lot of familiar faces and a ton of new faces.

John

Not sure yet.  My folks are going to be in town that weekend, and am not sure I'll be able to break free yet.  Want to, but, gotta see how things go.   :)

I am planning to be there for both events (and bringing a couple of newbies). This will be their first tournament.
Even a bad day on the disc-golf course beats ANY day at work! -
