Rob can correct me, but I believe the I Like Sp'Ike tournament is not happening, but on the same day Rob will be hosting the Free State Fling at the new course at Clinton Lake, Bloomington Park.

Yep, it's true

It probably would be ok, but if the other day is full, then you wouldn't be able too?

This year for the Longview Open, we are moving the divisions around a bit.  Intermediate, Rec and Juniors will play on Saturday with a medium layout, Pro and Advanced divisions will play on Sunday with a longer layout.

Registration opens up February 3rd at 4pm.

This event is a part of the Maverick Disc Golf 2017 Series Driven by INNOVA.  There will be a total of $1800 worth of additional vouchers and merchandise at the end of the season.  Some of it is awarded on performance and some of it will be awarded as a free random drawing for those that participate.  Either way, the more you play, the better your chances at the extra stuff.  More information can be found here:

Few updates:

First, Maverick DG is renting a portable toilet for this event. Kanza Park does not have a toilet on site until Memorial Day, so we are renting one for the day.

Second, the tournament is 1/3 full. Reminder - this event does have different tee pads for different divisions. To ensure you get an appropriate tee pad pool, sign up earlier vs. later. Plus, if you sign up before Feb. 19 Ams will get a larger player pack and Pros can choose to get the player pack if they want.

For all events in 2017, there will be a $3 late registration fee to register after on-line registrations closes (presuming there are still spots open).

Registration opens up for the Kanza Krush '17 Presented by Innova Discs Wednesday morning, Jan. 4th.

We will be using two sets of tees. Long tees will be used for all Pro divisions, All Advanced divisions (except Adv. Master Women if there are enough), and Intermediate men. Short tees will be used for Adv. Master Women, Intermediate Women, all Recreational divisions and all Junior divisions.

For those that register early (by Feb. 19), there will be a bonus player pack consisting of an Innova premimum disc, Innova beanie, 2017 disc golf calendar, DewFly towel, sticker sheet and pencil. This is available for all amateurs, and for pros as well (for an extra $20) if you register early. Additionally, if you want to, you can add a long sleeve shirt for an additional $7.50 OR a hoodie for an additional $20. This is also available to pros that opt to purchase a player pack (but not to pros that don't opt to purchase a player pack).

The large player pack is only available for paid early registrations.  After early registration closes, the player pack will be a premium disc and some other item not yet determined.

Finally, because registering after on-line registration closes is so problematic, for all tournaments going forward there will be a $3 additional charge to register after online closes including day of walk ups (if there is room).

(hey, doesn't that guy on the right look like Waldron?)

I've played both halves, but not on same day.  Back 9 is playable, but a little rough.  Not too bad.  Front 9 about a month ago had 2 unplayable holes in my opinion, but I know there are local Lawrence guys that play the whole course on a regular basis.  There are no signs installed yet, so you have to feel your way around. 

This is going to be a really nice course.  The quality of baskets, number of pins, tee boxes, benches, etc is going to be on par with Longview but not quite as extreme terrain.  Definitely requires some very good shots though.  Access to bathrooms at 2, possibly 3 locations while playing.

Carolyn's Dirty Water Open is May 20th.  Sorry for the error.  There is also a possibility that Big Blue Monster will be moved.

IMPRESSIVE Rob, especially committing to dates in advance.  Thank you for sharing here.

Thanks.

Really want to thank Innova for working with me on the Series and donating $1800 worth of stuff beyond normal perks I receive using their plastic for player packs.  The year-end payout will be cool because winners will receive a validation code and be able to pick out items directly from their pro shop and pick out new, different, and out of print items.   Plus, a drawing for items like a Pro 28 basket?!  Wow.

UPDATED FLYER WITH CORRECTED DATE FOR CAROLYN'S DIRTY WATER OPEN
and
ADDED FREE STATE FLING at Bloomington Park, Clinton Lake, KS.




Super excited to announce a more cohesive tournament set-up for 2017. Besides normal player packs, trophies, and payouts for each individual tournament, there will also be year-end bonus payout and prizes worth $1800!

A total of $570 merchandise credit will be given away based on accumulated points for finishes at Series events. The merchandise credit will be available to both Pro and Amateur divisions and will be redeemed at INNOVA’S Pro shop (https://proshop.innovadiscs.com ). The points structure will be similar to the PDGA NT Event points and listed below.

Additionally, there will be six large ticket items that will include an INNOVA DISCatcher Pro 28, the new mid-grade INNOVA basket (not yet released), an INNOVA DISCatcher Sport and a Traveler or Skillshot. There will also be two bags given, a ProtoBag (not yet released) and a HeroPack. These items will be rewarded at the end of the season via a drawing. Each tournament you play in, regardless of division, will get you one entry. The more tournaments you play, the more entries you will have.

In total, this amounts to over $1800 worth of product given by INNOVA directly to you for participating (and excelling in case of the point finishes) in tournaments that are a part of the Maverick DG Series Driven by INNOVA.

POINTS DISTRIBUTION:



Points are awarded based on place for each division. If you play in more than one division throughout the year, your points will be added up by division and the division where you accumulated the most points will be the division available for payout. So if you mostly play Intermediate, but occasionally play Advanced Master, you retain all of your points for both divisions but are placed in the division you played in the most – Intermediate. There are no Pro or Am points, just points, as payout for all divisions is merchandise credit at the Innova Pro Shop. If you DNF – Do Not Finish a tournament, no points will be rewarded.

PROJECTED PAYOUT:
This was based on approximately $1 per person for select events in 2016 that at the time would carry over to the Series in 2017. Slight adjustments have already been made as to what tournaments were selected to be in the Series and what wasn’t.

Most divisions will have their own payout structure. For some divisions that have historically lower turnout, multiple divisions will be combined for the additional payout. For example, Pro Women and all Pro Divisions outside of Open are in one BONUS payout division. Each are rewarded their own points, (First place in their own division gets 100 points, Second place gets 95, etc.) however all players for those divisions will be combined and the top point winner will get the First Place payout, second point winner will get the Second Place payout, etc. This would also apply to all Groupings as described below.

BONUS LARGE TICKET ITEMS:
Each tournament you play, regardless of division, gets you one entry into the year-end drawing. Simple as that. Plan on picking up the large ticket items in Lawrence, KS. A case by case compromise can be made on alternate plans for delivery for those that cannot pick up in Lawrence, KS. We can work that out when the time comes.  If you live in the Kansas City metro, I work in Overland Park and we can work out a way to get the item to you.

Barter Town / Lots of homebrew equipment
« on: December 10, 2016, 10:54:30 PM »
I homebrewed my own beer for 25 years from 1990 - 2015.  I've finally decided to give it up.  I have a ton of stuff for sale, primarily centered around brewing 10-12 gallon batches.  If you are interested, I have it listed on Lawrence Brewers' Guild facebook page.
