I'd be willing to wager that team Kiewit (in division C) will post the lowest score in the CC next weekend.

Tom, who's your partner?

It really doesn't matter. hahaha

It's a co-worker of mine named Rand, or as his disc golf mentor (some guy named Laron) used to call him, Iran. He's rusty, but do I really need a partner to dominate the cc?

I think the Federal Reserve Bank might have a shot....if Mike Thomas is playing...you've got competition!
Missouri....our state animal is sterile, our state rock is lead, and we elected a dead guy to the U.S. Senate.  Of course, he was the best candidate.

That's what I said, then I got a partner who can throw sidearm.  Sweet!

Yep. That's what I get for talkin smack. It was a great day to be in the park, and we had no bogies and lotsa fun though.

Deuce or die course layout keeps things interesting.

I did put in my opinion for a longer course, and got vetoed.  This is due to the fact that less than 10% of teams have a league player on their teams, and wouldn't have near as much fun on a longer, more technical layout.

But if someone gets hot next week, double digits down (12 or 13) could be hit.  #12 is moving shorter, so that's one more 300ish hole to add to the mix.

Will bag tags be in play during the corporate challenge?

For what is is worth- I think they should be but of course, only for full teams that both have tags.

Interested in hearing the official ruling from KCFDC honchos?

Since it's doubles, all parties would have to agree ahead of time.

I agree with Chap - but I'll bet the chances of all four players having tags is pretty slim.
Farmers Insurance Team - you got tags?

Low men's for the day:
EMBARQ and Kiewit both at -10

Low ladies on Saturday:
Children's Mercy at +12

It was an awesome weekend for disc golf in Kansas City.  We were there at the beginning on Saturday and until about 10:30 on Sunday.  The park was full, the discs were flying.  Overall, there were hundreds on newbies and casual disc golfers playing, certainly a good thing for the sport!!!!

Damn you Tom.  Looks like we switched places from the weekend before :).

Who played for Henderson Engineering?  They shot a 45, and that's no easy score either (put us in 4th overall for the men!).

Congratulations to everyone that played, both men and women.  I hope this event will generate some new avenues for the KCFDC and disc golf in general to grow over the coming years, and generate some interested (and sponsorship) for Worlds '09.

My partner did real good. We had a fun day. We got to -9 at hole 15, but didn't birdie 16 or 17. Shoulda been, coulda been. Luckily my partner parked 18 for a drop in bird. We are already looking forward to a repeat next year.

Rick, John, Jack, and the KCFDC did a great job with this event. The KCCC folks had to be impressed with the organization of the event, and with the huge turnout.

I (rich smith) played for Henderson Engineers along with Eric Taylor.  I am 45 and havent played much serious disc golf since the 80's but its kinda like riding a bike.  Eric just graduated from KSU and obviously has youth and a young arm on his side.  All in all it was a great day and a very well run event.  Not nearly as chaotic as some of the other large KCCC events.  I hope it will be back next year!
