Kansas City Disc Golf Events Calendar
June – September 2013
Announcing the second Kansas City Team Challenge
Hosting rights will flip flop from East to West each year. The “Host” team gets 2 rounds (24 points worth of matches) on the course of their captains choice. The other round (8 points worth of matches) is played on the opposing teams turf. 2012 version was slightly different, but allowed a first Host to be determined for this year. By virtue of their win in 2012, the East side will be the host team for 2013.
June 1st and 2nd
Teams of 16 (+2 alternate) players from KS. and MO. each to compete in match play of three formats (alternate shot doubles, best shot doubles and singles). Each match will be worth one point. East Side can retain the Eagle trophy with 16 points or more. The West side has to get 16.5 points or more to win the trophy.
Wyco on KS side- afternoon of Saturday the 1st. exact time TBD, for the alternate shot doubles matches.
Cliff Drive on MO side, Sunday the 2nd for the remaining matches.
MO – East Side – Ryan Keck
KS – West Side – Tracy Walker
To be determined! Possibly a combination of spots obtained via qualifying or captains picks. I’m leaving it up to the Captain of each side to determine how to build their team. I think we should stick with the 2 Women, 4 Masters (min.) and 10 Open players as required composition of each team.
$25. Unless you already have an official team jersey for your side, in which case it is just $10. $10 to support tree planting at KC area courses.
I’ll provide more details as Ryan and I determine how we’re going to form our teams.

Pictured: David Feldberg & Valarie Jenkins, the 30th Wide Open Champions, both of who have also won World Championships. These were the second WO titles for both of them. However, only four people in the Wide Open’s top divisions have successfully defended their championship titles: Juliana Korver won five years in a
row, Lyn Warren four years, Ken Climo three years, & Dan Ginnelly two years. Will David and Valarie join this group this year?
