DAMN!  Spot on Joe.  Good job on putting it out here!

absolutely hate the notion of the Thu/Fri/Sat deal, thanks.

My thought process really is trying to decide if I want to take time off to pay a city and join for an event that only gives me 3 rounds that they basically are requiring me to be at for 4 days.

I am waning on attending as are many others.

This isn't the model to replicate in my mind.

As a person that has ran a Wide Open 5x, I may not have decision making powers but I will give and list my opine regardless!   ;D

Pros-
3 days
Fri-Shotgun -2 rounds 1 course-WW
Sat-Swope Tee Times
Sun-Swope Tee Times/Final 9 top 7

Ams-
3 days
Fri-Swope Gold Tee Times
Sat-Rosey/WW-flip afternoon round
Sunday-Irwin M Fletcher-Cliff/Little Blue, KCFDC Championship Blue? (figure 2 pools)

BTier?-
2 Days 3 rounds
Sat-Sunday courses for Am's
Sun-WW

My thoughts....

If you go to a 2 day event, I would say WW x2 for pros on Sat, and Swope Sun, Am's go Swope/Rosey Sat, Cliff/WW Sun, and B-Tier would have to be like Cliff/BV (short) Sat and Rosey Sun, but that is a lot of staff.

blah blah blah blah blah....Ohhhh!  SNAP!
Also, I am nominating myself for East Side captain.  As a graduate of THE University of Missouri, I have the bona fides to lead the East side.

Let the games begin.  We need a Mocking Jay

I am confirming the dates for the events, here is what I am trying to get confirmed.  As of right now I have SMP, Kearney, P-Hill (pending park approval), Kearney, and Olathe confirmed.  Brian Palmer is confirming the LS date.


Saturday January 10:
Blue Springs-Jose/Bill Shinoski-Jose Confirmed
Olathe-Andy Lewis/Harold-Andy confirmed, and so did Harold!

Sunday January 11:
Kearney-Mike Lockwood-Lockwood confirmed
P-Hill-Aaron/Nate Zier-Confirmed by Aaron/Nate

Saturday January 17:
SMP-Brad Berve-Soup
Liberty:Kujo-Confirmed by Kujo!

Sunday January 18:
Smithville-Ted Keith/Dan Weinert
Lees Summit-Brian Palmer/Frank M/Jason McEwen-Brian is confirming with the Mrs./Frank says "will Do"


We will allow you to play and ICe Bowl rules apply, you will be able to get Mulligans, etc....so that way you can take your score from your "local course" and apply it for the final 9 round in the afternoon.  Where we may have 8-somes as such that will play for the vaunted disc for winning your card as well.  More information to follow, but we are about 1/2 way there with confirmations and I wanted to thank and let people know.

Can one really improve upon basket design?

Yes, yes they can.  Actually I-Q-Ball has a design that he is working on that I think will be better.  Personally the Titan is the best basket that I have seen in many respects to date.

There needs to be an ability to improve the design for certain.  Just as disc designs evolve, so have the baskets.  Think about those coneheads, tone poles, single chain baskets of the 70's and where we are today.

There are many efforts to improve the quality of our sport, including disc technology as well as basket technology, pad, shoes, clothing, bags...etc......

Yeah.....Don't put up anything.  There is a whole master plan, and it has taken about 15 years to get this "9" done.  We had a much more robust and ambitious 18 hole design out there courtesy of Buckle, however the land across the street has some environmental issues (limited natural resources that could impact a species), and the area around the east of the course has plans as well.

The course wasn't exactly what I had wanted, and the parks department planner and I went round and round on erosion issues out there, etc.....

So making alternate pads with flags, etc....yeah no biggie, but beyond that, this will be a slow project to make to 18, but we should be able to get there!

Personally, I signed up for Rec because it had both of my favorite Emporia courses - Peter Pan and Country Club.

It's "ours" too. ;)
Course Schedule *Subject to change  :-X

Yep, it will probably change a few times.  If they went away with the tee times, and did shotgun gun starts and made it 4 or 5 rounds you could do a shuffle, but the way it is set up, spot on with the need to change the field.  What may change though is the tee time versus shotgun notion, which could lead to course changes as we have already seen.  It is 5 months out, until it is "full" it will be floating with the EXACT courses/pools.  But I bet they have it close if they only need a few hundred people at this point.

I will circle back with P&R on this, and get keys to it.  I need to talk about the next 9 holes as well.  The signs were "done" ala swope style but they used the contractor and not our normal operations, so this is why it isn't completed yet, but looks to be done.

I have an UnderDOG disc from Wide Open 1992, XD.  Thanks for the note, I remembered it being a back it out something and rolling something.  I had some fun playing it for certain, couldn't remember the exact plan.  Otto was the last to attempt it I believe.  Hence my reference to him.  Nice to know not only the history of that, but also the Spiced Rum tradition!
