Independence Disc Golf Day - 10/25
« on: September 16, 2014, 02:08:22 PM »
Attention Kansas City Disc Golfers!

Independence Parks and Recreation is going to be hosting a disc golf day on the 25th of October.  It will take place at William Yates Elementary School at the Sprint Disc Golf Course in Independence.  This is an effort made in part to show support for another disc golf course in Independence and also in part just to have fun on a fall afternoon!  The event will take place from 10 AM to 4 PM and will consist of more than just disc golf.  The school has several playground areas for young children to play and there may be a surprise appearance by the Independence Fire Department as well (yet to be confirmed).  The city plans to have other activities for families; rest assured it will be a good time!

We have encouraged the Park Board Commission members to come out and witness for themselves the kind of support for disc golf that we have in the Kansas City Metro.  John Theiss and I will work together to see if we want to put together some sort of mini tournament/ace race/casual round(s) for the day.  Details on that yet to come.  Basically what we are looking for is for as many people as possible to come out and show your love for the sport.  I know it's not the longest course in town and it may not challenge your disc golf ability as much.  However, we will have the course in tip top shape and hope that you can come out for an hour or two to enjoy the day!

If you have any questions, please PM me.  I'm not entirely sure who to contact, but if someone from the board reads this, please have the date and details posted on the club's website as we have included it on the flyer for viewing.  The flyer will soon be posted at some of the area courses.  Thank you so much!  Hope to see you all there!

BUUUUUUMP!!!!!

The Independence Disc Golf Day is this coming Saturday.  I know that the Paradise 54 is also going on, but if you are not playing that and would like to support our cause, please try and attend.  We need to get as many people out as possible so please invite your family, friends and anyone else you can think of!  I'll be out there all day and we will have some extra discs along for those do not have any.  Please see my original post for more details.  We hope to see you there!

Thank you!

I do not have a Facebook, so I can't really help out with that.  Can you guys post them here?

Good job guys! Will the City have loaner discs? New discs for sale? Will the KCFDC have handouts? Scorecards?

I will be there most of the day to show off, err, lead beginners around the course  :D

...maybe I can match my younger days at Swope with four or five rounds in one day  :o

 8)From what I've heard,  and seen on TV...a lot of drama is on this Facebook thing that you speak of. Not something I care to be apart of. ..

There will be loaner discs but no vending. As for the scorecards, etc....we are just asking people to get out and play.  We don't want to make this a tournament atmosphere and turn people away.  No winners or losers, just disc golf!!!
