Tournaments / Re: 30th Kansas City Wide Open
« on: June 04, 2012, 03:56:31 PM »
Last year the crowd was spread between 3-4 cards including the men's and women's leaders.

I thought the scene was much better this year with the entire gallery concentrated on the one group.

I think this idea should be considered again for finals in the future. When they were playing the modified hole 16, i saw quite a few people drive by very slowly with looks on their faces wondering what the hell was going on.

I totally agree with having the top 7 men & women play together.  I thought it was very cool.  The large gallery was great.  Having the ladies play with the men showed other people how good they really are.

Morning rounds:
Player meetings at 8:10, tee off at 8:30

PM rounds:
Player meetings at 1 pm; tee off at 1:30

Sunday final 9 at 1:30

So the NT are playing 5 rounds, last one at Swope, plus top (whatever) play an additional 9 at Swope for a total of 27 Swope holes on Sunday?

NT, A, and B signup so far: 205
NT and A from last year: 172

205 - 34 B's = 171.

We are only 1 off from last year with a week to go yet.  I'm excited to play....

I've been actually thinking along these lines as well, but wasn't going to post.  Now the cat's out of the bag...

One thing may possibly be the Pro Purse.  GBO tends to be larger.  DD also seems to have a pretty big draw from TX and OK, KC is another 1.5 hr farther north.

I was surprised on how strong the Intermediate turnout was for GBO.  It may have to do that it is early in the year and people have cabin fever and want to get out and compete.

2011 DD players playing in the KCWO:

Nikko
McCabe
Uli
McBeth

and more.

The Open signup will fill I believe.  It's an NT event, they want the NT points.  The B - tiers, I'm kind of wondering.

As a Novice signee, I would be up for having the Rec and Novice all put into a Novice pool.

General Banter / Wiggins New World Distance Record
« on: April 17, 2012, 12:17:05 PM »
Otter made reference of this in different thread, but surprised there isn'y much discussion about this:

http://www.innovadiscs.com/home/492-david-wiggins-jr-sets-new-distance-record-with-blizzard-champion-boss.html

"On Friday, April 13th, 16 year old David Wiggins Jr. launched a 134-gram Blizzard Champion Boss high into the desert sky. When it returned to earth, spotters confirmed the disc had traveled 836' (255m) and had broken the world distance record. A record that stood untouched for nearly a decade. David was competing in the the High Desert Distance Challenge III in Primm, NV (elevation 2618'). David's throw bested Christian Sandström's record of 820' that was set way back on April 26, 2002 with an Innova DX Valkyrie. "

Rumor has it some kid threw a 150 blizzard boss at WYCO from 3's tee to 17's fairway.  Clearly it was a piss-poor shot and ended in a 5 on the hole, but quite the chuck nonetheless...darn Kansas wind...

I watched him do it.  He was driving in that direction on purpose to have extra room while waiting for the tournie results.  Proly didn't hurt that EMac was sitting around watching.

Finished playing a solo round at Lawrence Centennial tonight at about 7:15.  While walking past the tee for hole 1 back to my car, Nate Doss, Valerie Jenkins and a third guy (I'm  pretty sure it was Justin Atwater-Taylor) were getting ready to tee off.  Pretty cool to see 2 World Champions playing your home course, but I was a little surprised they weren't down in Emporia playing practice rounds.

Swope / Re: R.I.P. Swope Disc Golf Course Bathroom
« on: April 11, 2012, 12:13:30 PM »
The basket on 15 was apparently hit by a large something. The basket is a little bent up but will catch a disc. I will move it away from the mud pit tomorrow.
I moved a few baskets that were sitting in mud or water yesterday. 18's tee pad is broken in a number of spots too  >:(

Is 15's basket going to be replaced?

DD Facebook page provides a link, but they do say they are tentative times meaning they can change.

Went down to do a practice round at Jones Gold today.  Threw my Wahoo into a pond (hole 4).  Tried to get it out by throwing rocks over it and causing waves to bring it to shore, but it wasn't working.  Wasn't too upset because I really don't care for it.  Then another golfer came by, so I asked him if he had a Golden Retriever.  Sure enough he did, so I tried to get my Wahoo.....except that I wasn't holding onto the rope nearly as tight as I thought I did.    So it went into the water, rope and all.

This whole time, there is a girl sitting in the shelter watching me make a fool of myself.  I can't strip down to my grundies, because she's watching.  (Yeah, I know some of you would have, but...)  Now, I have to get wet, so I can get this stranger's GR out.  He didn't ask, I just did it as that would be what I would expect. So, after 1 hr 40 min drive from Lawrence, I played 30 minutes and am absolutely wet.  Tried to play 1 more hole, but it's 50 deg, my jeans are clinging to me like my son's skinny (tight) jeans do, and I am no longer having a remote amount of fun. 

3+ hr round trip drive, 30 minutes of golf.

Monday, 6pm?
No entry fee?
What is a New Player?  My Kan-U-Wyco rating would have been a 836.
