Anywhere else the shirts may be available?  DGW, anywhere?

What's this thread about?

While I'm not a PDGA member, I pay attention to people I play with and would guess I'm would have a rating right at I'm not that good.  While I have a competitive spirit and hate losing, I just don't have the skills.  However, I really, really enjoy traveling to play different courses within 90 minutes of Lawrence.  When I do travel, I make it a point to go to dg stores (spend some money I don't need to spend), and enjoyed both DGW and DD store fronts.

Having another quality dg store in KC would be beneficial for the sport and continue to create momentum.  I enjoy craft beer and have been brewing my own for 20 years.  As more people become interested in beer and/or brewing, and more brew pubs and homebrew shops open, it continues to build moment.  The supply needs to run with the demand and vice versa.  Having another dg store that is considerably away from the other but still in the metro area, could actually help both of them in the long run.  And would provide an opportunity to have more B and C tier events at the lesser used courses.

First post ever for me on KCFDC....

Maybe you're interested in a Newb's point of view, maybe not.  WO was the second only tournament I went to watch.  The first being 2011 Glass Blown Open.  I specifically went to watch the top players, Jenkins, Locastro, etc.  First, I was really surprised about how few spectators there were.  I was expecting 1000+, was there 300?, 400?  I would not believe there was 500 if you told me.  I'm not sure.  I make this point, because if you are looking for sponsors, 500 people really isn't that much, really.  Sponsorship is advertisement, need spectator #'s up.  However, I was totally stoked that I got a free Vibram putter (I use it almost every round I play), after another spectator told me about it.  Now well publicized.

As far as Fat Tire, Boulevard, etc.  I've brewed my own beer for over 20 years.  Blvd is good beer.  However, Tall Grass is also VERY GOOD BEER.  I think Jeff (main brewer at TG), would be interested in events such as this.

Cost?  I've only played KS Sunflower Games, Topeka Ace Race so far.  Cost vs. benefit is HUGE for me as a family of 4.  I signed up today for the Rosedale Am Champ because cost was below $35 and I new exactly what I was going to get as a player's pack.  Ideally, I want more back than what I paid (discs, shirts, etc.).  I also want more back of useful stuff than what I paid.  Vouchers are totally cool.  Give me a choice of a disc or two, or $X towards disc (because I actually like DX plastic) and I would be really happy.  I want to play WO next year, but if cost is over $65 (besides PDGA membership), probably won't happen.
