2014 Kansas City Flying Disc Club Championships – October 11-12
This event is FREE for all current KCFDC members. If you are not current, you can always sign up at either DDKC, DGW, or the day of the event. Please bring Cash or Check (made out to “KCFDC”).
Here we are again. Time to find out who is the best of the best in Kansas City. Due to the amount of people who showed up for the 1st round last year, I have decided to start us out at Rosedale Park. This way we can use both courses to facilitate an abundance of golfers. So both rounds on Saturday will be at Rosedale. You will either play Up-Top or Down-Under in your first round. Then you will play the other course during your second round.
Then on Sunday we will play at Waterworks and Blue Valley. This is where it gets tricky. You will need to check here, Facebook, or your email to find out where you will need to go to play in the morning. Then we will switch courses in the afternoon. If you are unsure or miss all of out attempts to communicate with you, please get to one of the courses early in the morning so you can find out if you chose correctly. Hopefully you will be able to figure it out. I will do my best to make sure you know. Water Works will be the finishing course for the top cards. Hopefully that will help you figure out where to go.
Remember folks, you DO NOT need to play every round. You can come out for 1 round, 2 rounds, 3 rounds or all 4. But if you intend to only play 1 or 2 rounds here an there, please let me or whoever is running your course know. It will make everything go so much easier.
Now, obviously this is a new format this year. I just want to see how it works being the fact that our club is getting so much bigger. I need to find a way to keep 140+ players off one course at a time. While we somehow made it work last year, I don’t want to go through that again.
Check in for Saturday and Sunday morning will be 8:00-9 AM. If you are playing an afternoon round only, please be at the course early to get checked in. I will try to post afternoon start times here and on the KCFDC Facebook page.
Round 1 – Rosedale Park – 9:30 am
Round 2 – Rosedale Park – TBA
Round 3 – A-POOL Blue Valley – 9:30 am / B-POOL Water Works – 9:30 am
Round 4 – A-POOL Water Works – TBA / B-POOL Blue Valley – TBA
We will also be taking payment for your 2015 Bag Tag. You must PREPAY for the bag tag to be included in the initial distribution of tags. Winning the event will NOT get you an exemption. You must pay to play. I will reveal next years tag at the event and they will be distributed at the KCFDC Elections. Date TBD.
If you have any further questions you may call me at DGW 816-471-3472. Or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
