This just in.  The Players Pack for all the Amateur Divisions will be a custom Hoodie.  If you pre-register prior to March 1st, i can get you the size you request, after that the selection will be whats left over.

I'll get a picture of the design up soon so you can see it.

The Kan-U-Wyco has had about 10 registrations in the last couple days giving us 12 confirmed players.  Don't forget those who register prior to March 1st will get there requested Hoodie Size as part of your Amateur Players Package.

If you would like a Hoodie or an extra Hoodie, let me know your size and I will add it to the order.  The Hoodie cost will be $18.

We are up to 33 confirmed players for the Kan-U-Wyco event.  I have taken several entries in the last few days so I do expect this event to fill as fast as the Frostbreaker did.

As of now we are at 62 confirmed entries for the Kan-U-Wyco.  That is 23 entries in the last couple days and several players from the frostbreaker said they would be registering soon.  This is shaping up to be another fun filled event.

The Kan-U-Wyco is shaping up.  We have a full field, the Hoodies have been ordered and we will be adding two extra holes to make 2 rounds of 20 holes.  Hopefully the snow melts a little but either way be prepared for wet feet and bring extra clothes with you that day.

My guess would be yes, just like taped on lights are illegal.

Hopefully the snow will melt enough we won't need ribbons.

http://www.pdga.com/glowin-in-the-winter (http://www.pdga.com/glowin-in-the-winter) :

Question: Can only PDGA Approved glow discs be used for sanctioned play in the dusk and dark?

Answer: The PDGA office has approved a blanket waiver so any PDGA Approved disc may be used with glow stick or LED light attached, preferably to the underside of transparent discs, after sunset in your time zone. In addition, LED lights taped to PDGA Approved discs can be used during daylight specifically when there is sufficient snow cover on the course and the LED might make the disc easier to locate. Non-PDGA Approved discs such as those with built-in LED lights cannot be used at any time during sanctioned play.

I don't think ribbons are legal, but LED's are legal if it gets dark, or if there is enough snow cover to help locate them.

What does that mean?  I am not removing any existing holes from the layout.  Wycos 18 will each be played.

Grass tee boxes will be painted and flagged for identification of the temporary tees. Because of all the snow still on the ground, but hopefully melted soon, the course is going to be a bit sloppy all over. 

Funny thing is, people are moaning about added holes. However, come lunch time next Saturday, all the moaning will be about and how tough 10 and 13 are.   "gotta an bleepin' Snowman," "stupid OB," "bleeping fence", etc etc.      Warms my devilish heart.
How about the groaning about the wind

Nope, the mando is your disc must pass to left of the marker to prevent throwing over the trees directly at 7's teepad.

Its tournament week and things are going well.  If you are playing either day, you can come and check in at the DDKC store Friday or you can wait until the morning of the event.

As of now we are looking at pretty nice weather this week so hopefully most of the snow is gone, however, I am sure it will be sloppy so be prepared for wet feet.

We should have the two additional holes decided by Friday, if not before.

I think that was pretty much taken care of in the 19th century.

Yeh, but due to a bunch of wack, liberal minded eco-nuts, we are getting back nice critters like mountain lions, wolves, elk, and wild turkeys. We can co-exist with mountain lions and wolves. They are cuddly. Once all the law abiding folks are forced to relinquish their forearms, we'll have a great time with the mountain lions and wolves. Oh yes.

What an intelligent, open minded statement Tom. I don't know which is more wack; your idea of a liberal, or the idea that it would take an AR15 or a similar semi-automatic assault rifle to kill a wolf or mountain lion. Those are the only "forearms" that intelligent Americans would would like to see banned.
They won't be of course, thanks to the NRA and all the pockets they stuff in Congress.

Tracy, do you anticipate existing snow will change your plans for paint? I wouldn't think it would be possible to paint on the snow. When it melts or gets down-trodden it would make an ambiguous line, at best.

Post by: five2loves42 on March 07, 2013, 10:47:28 AM
Readjusted to Scotts latest plan; no added holes, one ghost card. 3, 11, 14 and 18 are all possible ghost card starts. But in my opinion, 14 will be the best hole to ghost card from. Once the start card gets around the pond, the ghost card can tee off.  The card on 13 shouldn't finish before the ghost on 14 starts.  Even if a little backup eventually forms on 14's tee, they can provide spotter help for shots onto the fenced in green behind them.

#1  - Long Left (534') -> Short right (401') 2nd round.
#2  - Long (~625' - from google earth ruler tool) (OB added on left)
#3  - Left (555')  -> Right (519') for 2nd round.
#4  - Right (480') (Mando just off the tee)
#5  - Short (246')
#6  - Short (296')
#7  - Long right (549')
#8  - Short (286')
#9  - Left (445') -> Straight (462') (OB island fairway same as last few years)
#10 - Extra Long (680') (OB add on right)
#11 - Short (410') (Mando 2nd tree)
#12 - Short. (291')
#13 - Long (789') (OB and guarded island green added)
#14 - Dam (525')
#15 - Normal (330')
#16 - Left (465')
#17 - Middle (610') -> short (453') for 2nd round.
#18 - Straight (381')


So are these set for both rounds now?

That's why I don't play the Kan-U-Wyco anymore....the weather is always crappy.  :-D

That's why I asked about the placements being finalized. I did not see many "shorties" for the second round. Yes, it will be a loooooonggggg day :)

definitely learned some things today. What an event. I used casual relief 5 times. I'd say that's more than I used it in the entire 2012 DG season!

I certainly wish we could of finished...I had more towels ô¿ô

Great layout Tracy. Thanks for the work.

Did anyone else really dig the Snow-Fog?

See all your crazy people again tomorrow!

Damn wolves...

Had to delay a couple of times because of lightning, just eventually got to the point where we wouldn't have been able to finish by dark.

I think we could have finished. Last lightning call out was the last lightning I saw until 9pm. We only had 6 holes left at 5. No complaints though, I wasn't going to change my position in division anyway. I might have improved my rating some though. I heard there were a few dropping out anyway.

The Kan-U-Wyco was an interesting day.  I was forced to cut the second round short and as per PDGA rules, finish the tournament based on the first round scores only.  It was a difficult decision and one I have never had to make in the 16 years I have been running events.  I made the call, because I do not believe we had even close to enough time to finish.  The last strike was at 5:20 which would have meant assuming at that time there were no more strikes, the players could go back plus another 10-15 minutes to allow players to get to their holes and acclimated.  Most groups had anywhere from 5-9 holes left with less than 30 minutes of possible lighted play.

I have always said i was pretty blessed with the weather I have had with my events over the years but this was the one that reminded how sucky the playing conditions could get.  Otherwise I think the event was going well and things seemed to be operating as they should.

Here are the results for the 1 Rounder Kan-U-Wyco

Again if you have any concerns, comments or complaints, please message me and I would be happy to talk to you more about it.

Thanks

Scott

We had close to the same conditions at the Fore Fathers Fling yesterday.  It was one sloppy, muddy, rain-soaking mess!  It took us just over 4 hours, and a half hour stoppage, to complete the first round.  They called it after that, as they didn't feel we could get the second round in before dark.  Most everyone was definitely good with that.  The one round felt like we played 2.  I think I gained ten pounds in excess water soakage....lol

Yeah was having a blast. So much for my rebound in the second round which would have saved my rating. But with 6 holes to go I got screwed. And yes we could've finished. So any statement otherwise would not be true. And the fact I would've placed but didn't  because only the first round scores counted and not the 12 I had thrown the second round. Can anyone else taste the bile?

I dont think you would have finished, but it was not about just your card finishing.  All of the cards would have had to finish including the groups with 9 more holes to go with very little daylight left.

Scott made the correct decision. 
It does stink you did not get to improve St. Joe KC, but I agree with everything Tracy said.

Tracy, well done on the layout.  I do not play WYCO very much, mainly because it is too far on the wrong side of the state line, but I think it is a very good challenge in its normal set-up.  I thought your use of OB provided the right amount of pucker factor and made the non-flagged difficult holes seem like a walk in the park.

Perhaps instead of soccer and ball fields, we can convince Cerner to build an inflatable dome over the entire course.

Water Works will have to be first for that. It's in Ace Mason's master plan for WW.

There was no way we would have finished. My card had 6 holes left when we got to hole 10 and there was one card waiting to throw and mine made for 2. That was at 5:15.  I actually quit and was walking back when I heard the horn blow.  Scott called it right.  Sorry about your ratings dudes, but wait for a month and we will all be in shorts and tshirts and then we can talk about ratings.

@Scott, hope you understand, I was NOT complaining. You did what you thought was right and with your knowledge of the speed and placement of all cards, you were the one to make the call.

On the other hand, if someone did get struck by lightning, since it is a KCFDC event, insurance would have covered any damages . . .

 . . . and just think of the national/international publicity disc golf, Kansas City and WyCo park could have gotten. (Who cares about the shmuck that got struck)  ;) ;D

What?  How do you think that insurance would cover negligent TD by putting people at risk?  The insurance coverage is for items that are negligent that should be controlled by the members of the club.  It doesn't cover things along these lines.  The notion of putting people out there in harms way would make the TD negligent, not the KCFDC or the P&R, and thus would have Scott in trouble.

He made the right choice clearly.  Kevin, suck it up bud, it is a one tourney C tier in KS in March.....be glad you made it home safely as did everyone else and there were no issues on the course.  We have had to call events short due to weather in the past, and it will happen in the future........the weather changes quickly, it is way better to be safe than to be the one who witnessed a person dying on the course because "we should finish don't you think" mentality took control over the event.

It's a B-Tier.

Just being devils advocate here, but if we all have this notion of getting hurt why don't we just stay home, and never go outside in the first place? Why dont we just live our lives in a bubble?? Also, if the show went on you dont have to keep playing. :D

Alas, I agree though. I was ready to go home anyway.

I once was playing Belmont DGC in Dayton, OH and a storm was rolling in.  I was there for business and it was the only chance I was going to get to play.  It was in the summer and I decided I didn't care if I was going to wet so I headed out and got started.  I made it to hole 12 or 13, and then all hell broke lose.  The wind was so bad and it was raining so hard that I couldn't even tell which direction to head back to my car.  Since I had never played this course and couldn't see a thing, it took me probably 15 minutes to find my way back to my car.  There were several lightning strikes very close and I wouldn't have been surprised if it started hailing (it didn't).  I thought to myself "well that was dumb" and was thankful I made it back to my car in one piece. Weather is very unpredictable and I personally think it was the right call.  I don't think there was enough daylight to complete the round.  Especially if it was stopped due to lightning and then wait a half hour and restarted again.  Now I know several of us were on the far side and couldn't hear the horn and kept playing through and didn't wait the half hour.  We might have been able to finish the round, but I know we still had 6 holes to play at 5:15/5:30 pm (when we finally stopped).  The first round took us a lilttle over 3.5 hours to play in much easier conditions, which means if we played the final 1/3 of the course at the same rate it would have taken an hour and 15 minutes.  I'm guessing in those conditions it would have taken us at least an hour and half if not 2 hours and I'm pretty sure would have been very, very dark.

had some friends at an ultimate tourney back in the nineties in nashville or memphis. play had been suspended to let the weather pass. the all clear was given by the director, play resumed and the storm came back so fast most of the players didn't have time to run for cover. one guy had a "ball of fire come out of him"; killed him where he stood. another girl spent the better part of six months in a coma, pregnant at first. eventually she was moved to assisted living.
the lucky many were only blown off their feet with a newfound appreciation for lightning. made me a believer as well. don't get me started on wolves.
