Some more information on the event....

Looks to be Doubles Scramble style with a flex start.  Will probably use a Hybrid Lion's Den configuration, playing very similar practice 1, 2 from road, through exisiting-7, then play as the LDO did last year, where after throwing to #14, we play from the road to #15 under the tree, and then to regular #16 short, then from #17 pad to #18 basket.  So it will be LDO 2012 style for those in the "know"


Deleted old information, read below for more accurate information from the event managers!!

More information as it evolves, but this is where things are moving right now.  A more controlled event at Cliff Drive that will be a Lion's Den feel in some respects.

Lots of fun planned, this is a beginner friendly event for certain, infact if you bring a friend, you get $5, and so do they for attending the event.

I will be working on having a short configuration for the course, ala Lion's Den, there will be a few bands, a Farmers Market, mini golf, and other activities beyond Disc Golf at this event.

It is really just about getting them known to the area and the community, and a lot of the residents play disc golf, and love Cliff drive, so working towards making it another great day in the park at Cliff Drive!

Hey this is a wonderful worthy group to raise funds for. These young people work in the urban core helping repair and upgrade low income family homes. I know a few of the folks involved. Good, dedicated and living on the cheap. Let's help them make a difference in the lives of families who are struggling.

Plus, they like disc golf and Chipotle . . .

Sadly, there is another fundraiser tournament in the KC area on the same day for a very similar organization. My company is going to sponsor my four person team there, so I won't make it to this event. I will surely send some love and $$ that way.

We will miss you at the event.  It should be a lot of fun though for those of you who are able to make it.  We have bands lined up, food donated by Chipotle (for those who participate in the tournament), cool raffle prizes and other fun activities.

If you are able, be sure to pre-register on our website:

We're excited to have two musical groups from Kansas City at Community Harvest in the Park: Rob Foster and Dudes (http://robmusicianfoster.com/ (http://robmusicianfoster.com/)), a jam band, and the bluegrass/folk group The Burnt Ends! They'll both be playing during the afternoon on Saturday, October 5 at Kessler Park/Cliff Drive.  Don't need to play in the tournament to enjoy the free music.

Just got back from moving the front 9 baskets. It is NOT MUDDY like you might think! Just damp is all! Looks like a very cool setup out there for this tourney, and with the flex start, there's still time for you to make this event a part of your weekend. The course is set short so should be a smooth and laid-back time for all. 8)
