Every hole at Blue Valley now has a long and a short setting. 4, 10, and 15 were set today and will be playable on Friday. There are some really cool places to put additional settings, a par 4 on hole 3 - way up on the hill that overlooks the lake. Maybe shorter settings for both 17 and 18? I would like to put a few more pin placements out there - maybe 5 total, and then get some new maps/signs made. Does anybody have any ideas?

Yes. Set the course up short enough, within reason, it takes to play other courses (BRC, WW and RD, for example) and maybe it'll get played more often.

DK, not the Dead Kennedys, but Doug Keehler, will you confirm settings in the Big Blue Pin Placements thread?

Thanks,

Put two more pins in today, the first is a par 4 on hole #3 and second is also a par 4 on #6 - they will be playable Friday or Saturday. I'm going out this Saturday morning and intend to put the last 5 pins in. If anybody would like to help I will be at the parking lot  #1 @ 9 a.m.

I wanted to say thanks to Jim Kreeger. He does more (volunteer) work on a disc golf course than probably anyone in town and maybe as much as anyone in the world. If you see him, out at BV working by his turquoise truck, you should say hi (he loves to talk about DG). We put in another 4 placements this morning, which makes a total of 9 over the last week or so. The new settings are at 1 (par 4), 11 (par 3), 17 (par 3), and 18 (par 4). Also, Jim cleaned out a ton of honeysuckle last week - so that the new placement on 3 will be even more enjoyable to play.

Most people will never know how much work Jim has put into the courses.  Jim has been standing beside the role of Blue Valley YEARS before I invited him to a meeting back in 2001 to talk about putting a course in there.  He came equipped with a map already at that meeting, but sat back and listened to everyone.

We are a fortunate community to have Jim and people like Doug that make our city great.  There are many others, but when Doug calls him out and many of you are aware of what Doug does/has done, remember Jim has been out there over the past decade making it better for us all.

Kudos to you Doug and of course Jim will never read this, but Thanks to you r Kreeger as well!

We put some new pin placements out this week. We started out with a par 5 on #4, then put a tough par 4 on #7, a short par 3 on #8, and also a par 4 on #11. I think we are done with the new pin placements so now we can get some new maps made. Also Dan Cashen wrangled up six really nice benches for Blue Valley and even brought them out and helped install them. The park looks great -come on out!

Thanks Doug for everything you're doing out there. It's a great course where my Fidos luv it and run free.  I'll be glad to join you a time to help out too.   Let me know when maps are available.I kinda get lost out there with all the changes.

I hope Jack has a league out there too or maybe a floating pdga league?

Thank you Doug.

As often as you read/post do you comprehend or is it the whole birds that can't fly has eroded your brain?

Typically we have leagues run from April-September here in KC..............
Cliff Drive and Blue Valley (2016 will alternate between the 2 courses with the 1st Monday being at Blue Valley and the 3rd Monday at Cliff in the last few years this has been a PDGA League, and will be again this year) Northeast League Night
