Aug 21 league, 20 hole extravaganza
« on: August 20, 2011, 08:05:26 PM »
With the air show going on tomorrow, i'd rather not mess with the yokals.  I plan on doing 20 holes tomorrow, front 10 holes twice, playing 1 short and long and also 8 short and long.  One of my theories as to why turn out is so weak is you guys are afraid of CD normal layout.  Maybe this will help by doing the "fun" holes twice?  5pm folks, I get there round 430 for sign ups. Hope to see you there

Well 3 of us this week for a modified LDO round.

Ryan 49
Adam 51
Jack 51 with a circle 3 from the drop zone on 12

Sundays 5pm people, not sure what I can do to get a respectable turnout.  Any suggestions would be great.... are kc disc golfers afraid of cliff?

No, they're afraid of spending Sunday evening away from family or away from whatever lazy, relaxing environment they like to wind down in before beginning the work week.

None of these leagues should have been shuffled from where they were last year. Seems one season of lower numbers was enough to deem the system broken. Just because Swope had low numbers, and someone decided to attribute those low numbers to a private course's Tuesday league, it was seen fit to shuffle Swope and Cliff leagues to different days in order to accomodate this private course. Now, I like Old Pike as much as the next guy, but it was stupid to change the league schedules because of them. I say if certain elitist disc golfers want to abandon Swope to have their own little circle jerk league at a private course, they should have been able to do so without the KCFDC rearranging league nights and fixing things that weren't broken.

you missed the point of that post by Ryan...... ::)  the highlight was that I took a circle 3 from the Drop Zone (also means I owe Ryan a $1 for the OB, though I may want to change that rule, in that if you hit the next shot to save par, you don't owe the money.....

I am all for moving leagues back to Mon @ Cliff and Tues @ Swope for next year.  In fact would prefer it personally.

On Sunday, beer league at swope is bringing in 20-30. Pleasant hill doubles is bringing in 15-20 people. Sunday drive has always had a tough time.

I agree that it should go back to swope on tuesdays, and cliff on mondays. Monday's at swope have been underwhelming most of the year, not that cliff was packed when it was on monday, but last year swope had 30-40 people a week early in the year.

my suggestion to the board next year is to ensure that those that run the leagues will input the date.  I know that this year Drew wanted to try Sunday, he ran it, I wasnt stopping him.  Personally Sunday's are tough with kids to make by 5 if I have them to get out there, Monday's are better for me overall......

Cliff may not have been packed on Mondays, but at the very least it was a consistent crowd of the regular 6-8 guys. It was also a nice alternative to traveling to Olathe for those north and east of town.

Isn't Swope now that alternative?
