General question for the weekend of the event. This would be two rounds each on Saturday and Sunday? One in the morning and one in the afternoon?

Just trying to plan ahead for my work schedule, as I likely won't be able to take off the whole weekend.

Just one round on Saturday (alternate shot dubs).  It'll be up to Joe to decide what time of day.  Then two rounds on Sunday  (best shot dubs in the morning and then singles matches in the afternoon)

Steve Dresser has accepted captaining East side.  Now I am on the hook for info.  However, all guidelines and rules will be the same as last year with the exception of practice putting once a holes outcome is determined; doing so will be allowed.  I'll attempt to get all the details posted by this weekend.

West side has their player selection process posted.  East side, Steve, I suggest you do the same as soon as possible.  Also Steve, on Sunday, June 7, you'll be hosting the best shot doubles and singles matches at a MO. KCFDC course of your choice.

It would be nice, not to mention respectful to the course and those that play it regularly, to remove temp tee marking flags after you've held an event at a course.  Two months later and the flags set out for this FTL are still there. Please remove the flags, Harold. There is going to be a PDGA event at Wyco in just over two weeks.  We don't need random flags confusing people, because, well... they will.

It's not final. I was just asking.   East side still needs to make their Captain announcement official.  or something.

Has Dresser's nomination been seconded, approved by 2/3rds of the voting party, baptized in the Nile or whatever east side has in their by-laws to get this rolling?

Kidding aside, all I need, at this point, is Steve saying "I got it!"

I am running the Midwest Doubles Championship and sorry to bother everyone.  I moved it to that date without realizing the conflict and just have not had time to move it from this thread until now.  I put it back to its original date in April.  I would never try to intentionally conflict with a club event.

I have updated the main page with most of the events i noticed in this thread

Thanks Scott.

It is the Kansas City Team Challenge. 

The event has already been scheduled. It was put on the BoD calendar on Jan. 5th.  I went to the board meeting in Jan. to determine the event date. Other dates were considered and discussed, but it was agreed by the BoD that this is the best date, in the local schedule, for the event. Consulting with the BoD is what you're supposed to do when adding an event to the local calendar. In addition, working with the board on the date makes it such that my actions can't be taken as, Mrs. Walker unilateral shenanigans.

I don't think all weeknights is a better solution.  It may work for some, but I am pretty sure, it won't work for most.  It would also open a can of worms about which weeknights should be used to work around availability of players on each side... nightmare.

I made a proposal to temporarily solve the issue but also countered with why that wouldn't be great. Previously, I was inferring that the MDC change their date.  It is better if this event remains on the same weekend every year, so that it can be planned around.  I have offered Friday night Alt shot doubles as a possibility in the past. Was met with some resistance, as some have to work. But it is a possible solution to having both the challenge and the MDC on the same weekend. Lee, I like the idea that we celebrate together, as Kansas City disc golfers, Friday night, after the first round. Alt round host throws the party? As long as MDC is Saturday only, we could run the KCTC on Friday evening and Sunday.

After discussion with Steve Dresser yesterday......I have removed my objection for him to run as the team captain....:sigh:
:-D

Let's roll with it baby!

I haven't heard any further objections to Steve Dresser being Captain for Mo. side.  Are you guys good with this choice? 

going once...

Oh, sorry about the event details/rules/guidelines/codification/documentation being late.  just me lazy :)  I'll do my best to pull it together and post this weekend.

going twice...

That seems to be the consensus so I'll bow out.....this year....

I am pretty sure, no matter which weekend is selected, that there would be personal conflict.  It's unfortunate that the scheduled date happens to be your weekend for conflict, Hinck and Eastwood.  However, the schedule is packed and gets more so each year.  Attempting to schedule the Team Challenge weekend around individuals personal needs would be absurd.

As far as it being a KCWO workday weekend; I'll make two points.  First, any substantial heavy lifting, course altering, permanent or semi-permanent course work should be completed before the first of June.  Second, any temporary detail work like OB lines or final cleanup is best left until the weekend prior to WO week.  So, two weeks out is actually a perfect weekend for players to play and not be working on courses.

Agree, I think the Midwest Doubles Championship could really pull away talent from the team challenge.  I know I would choose Kansas first, but some people really love their doubles.

Joe, were you still considering using Lakeside Hills for the Saturday, alt shot round?  If so, perhaps we could work with the MDC organizer to have them start early (like 8:00 am tee). Then take a 3 hour or so lunch to allow the Team Challenge to use the course.  When the Team Challenge is done, then they start their afternoon round. Plenty of daylight early June to pull it off. Doing this makes it so neither event has to change dates, in addition to allowing players to participate in both, if they choose. 

It's a fine solution for one year, but Team Challenge has foothold on claim for first weekend in June.  I don't think the Team Challenge should have to accommodate the new event every year.  So making an exception this year may only set precedence for continued conflict on this weekend.

June 6th - Midwest Doubles Championship - B Tier - (Lakeside Hills, Olathe, KS)

That doubles event is in conflict, locally, with the Club's Team Challenge Event.  It wasn't on the BoD's calendar when I attended the board meeting, in January, to finalize the date for the Team Challenge.  I don't think it is fair to make locals choose between the two events.  As such, one of them should be rescheduled.  Who is organizing the Midwest doubles event?

Hey James.  First time tourney experience can be intimidating.  And it sucks she ran into some PoS players.  Prior to her next tourney, help her get a really good grip on the rules and code of conduct. Have her carry a copy of it with her.  If she has confidence in knowing them (at least know they are they to look up), she'll have the power to stand up for herself.  Beyond that, if there is any question or doubt about what is happening on a card, she has to get a TD involved as soon as possible.

Hey Tracy

Did we figure out a good weekend to run the Team Challenge?  Does June 6 & 7 work again?

I figured I'd let this weekends festivities pass before beginning the push for Team Challenge. But yes, the BoD put the Team Challenge on their event calendar for June 6/7.   That's when it will be held.

I will get a set of the rules posted by Feb 1.  That will be coupled with a final call for East Side Captain.
