http://pvpost.com/2013/06/21/local-disc-golfers-welcome-news-of-proposed-new-course-at-santa-fe-trail-park-19278

Somebody obviously did a sh$%tty job of researching.  "Only 2 courses on the Kansas side of the metro area, and zero in Johnson County"  Whaaa?  I guess whatever they have to do to convince these PV mom's to put a course in is okay by me:)

I did walk over to the park(about 3/4 of a mile from my house), and checked it out last night.  I am even more excited!  It will make a super fun little 9-holer!  Perfect winter course when the days are short and I get off work with only an hour to spare.

Can't wait!

I like that the picture they used was fron Dave's last putt on the final nine from last years wide open but the text, posted June 21, 2013, reads:

"Hundreds of spectators gathered at Swope Park’s disc golf course LAST WEEKEND for the “Kansas City Wide Open” Professional Disc Golf Association tournament. (Photo via Kansas City Wide Open)."

But reguardless of the misinformed press, I am higly excited for this course as my mother lives across the street from SM East. One more round of congratulations to Mike and Ben for getting this approved!!!

I have a plan for Super-class this Sunday the 13th.  I would like to play the proposed course at Austin Harmon Park in Prairie Village.  Was out there walking my dogs and throwing the frisbee this last weekend, and decided I don't want to wait til it's built to play it. 

We will play the proposed 9 hole layout, and I would like to add 3 killer holes to go along with it.  2 rounds for 24 holes. I need some help with some more portable baskets though(I have 2), and I need some up-front commitments, so we can make this happen.  A good 5-6 more baskets and I can make it work.

I haven't heard any more news on this course anyway, so you never know if they are changing their plans on building it.  So maybe we can get a good showing out there and get some good photos as proof of the actual Interest in a disc golf course.

Please respond if you can bring a basket and/or you are interested in playing. 

Sunday at 8:30, Austin Harmon Park, 79th & Delmar, PV-KS  Superclass discs only - but I will try to bring some extras out as well.  Probably play dubs.

I walked off some holes to check distances.  Not precise but pretty close.
1-230ft
2-300ft
3-288ft
4-207ft
5-219ft
6-216ft
7-270ft
8-180ft
9-182ft
10-162ft(Island)
11-102ft
12-282ft

Invitation to Hawk Ridge Park workshop Oct. 15th
We are happy to report that many citizens of Raymore have been offering their opinions about how to improve Hawk Ridge Park.  The online comments and the community dialogue has been great.  Let’s keep the conversation going!

You are invited to a Vision Workshop for Hawk Ridge Park on Tuesday, October 15th at 7:00 PM.  It will be held at the Community Bank of Raymore (801 W. Foxwood Drive) and is open to the public.  The masterplanning team will report what they are hearing from citizens, share ideas from other communities, and help lead the group toward a shared vision for Hawk Ridge Park.

Please help us spread the word. If you can, display the poster included below at your place of work.  We'll see you on October 15th!

 (A second workshop will be held on November 5th at the Community Bank of Raymore at 7:00 PM.)

Sorry Steve. Going to cancel this weekend.  Too many people with other commitments.  When I get enough people interested in for sure playing a certain date, I will post when and where we will play.

We used to wait until the season actually was over to play Homie to get a better turnout. But the seasons have gotten longer with events since then.
