Are we doing shotgun starts or tee times?  I can't seem to find that anywhere.  Thanks.
Greg I am pretty sire it is all tee times all weekend long.

yes, it is tee times every round. With the first card going out at 8:00am each day.  Although scheduling might get dicey if there are combined rain delays greater than 3 hours any particular day.  Hopefully any storms that hit blow through quickly.

Barter Town / Go Ape Gift Certificate

I have one ticket for Go Ape Treetop Adventures ($62.77 value, not redeemable for merch, food or cash) from the players pack of the KCWO perf flight.  My wife and son aren't the thrill seeking type, so I won't be using it.

First to request the ticket can have it.

Shawnee Mission / Re: Baskets moved, 7.19. 16 league

Correct.  This is a PDGA league, so it costs an extra dollar.  50 cents goes to the PDGA, and 50 cents is being donated to the KC Disc Golf Divas.
Ah, I didn't realize SMP was doing PDGA league.  thanks.

$5 for kcfdc members, $6 for non-members.  Add a buck for the ace fund.

It's $4 to play league, $5 if you are not a current KCFDC member.  Ace pool is optional $1 on top of member/non-member league entry.

WYCO / Re: 2016 Wyco League Fridays
« on: July 16, 2016, 11:21:55 am »
20 out yesterday evening; 14 in Open, 6 in Masters.  Pete C. has the detail sheet. The course was set quite long (par 62). Unfortunately, it was as shaggy as I have ever played it. Many searches for middle of the fairway drives.  But it looked like the P&R had just started the mowing cycle with first cut around pins and trees.  In all likelihood, Wyco should be fully mowed by next Friday.  Come on out and enjoy the expected heat wave.

There are several courses listed, in my opinion, that are better disc golf courses than Water Works.  However, WW would make my top 3 favorite courses in the area.  I guess it all depends on the criteria for how "best" is defined.

No thanks to this forum for eating my post that I worked on for 20 minutes.  I mean FT.  Whatev yo.

I've had the forum black hole long posts too. Quite infuriating! It's just a guess, but there may be some sort of built in time out. Anyway, if you're working on a post for a while, copy the entire work in progress and save it off to a text editor for backup that way you don't have to start from scratch.

Swope / Re: SWOPE Changes DISCussion

You would think the Zoo and a pet shelter would go hand in hand (i.e. put it on in their space).  But what do I know?

My thoughts exactly.  But then Swope gold is gone, not a big loss. 

What about the woods south of #14?  Could some solid technical holes be carved out in there?

But yeah, Joe has a good understanding of all the players involved and makes solid match-up decisions based on the situation.

Also, Joe has been captain for 2 years now. That's it. Tracy was the captain before that.

West Side Captains:
2012 - Cooper
2013 - Tracy
2014 - Initially Dick. Joe took over the last few weeks because Dick was overwhelmed with KCWO. But the three of us worked together formulating a plan leading up to the match-up process. However, Joe is listed as (C) on the trophy
2015 - Joe
2016 - Joe

We need to play more tournaments.

That is an astute observation that goes for all of KC, actually.  I think we tend to stay close to home too much; play events locally on courses we're comfortable on.  Personal experience showed me that traveling, even if just 3-4 hours from home, improved my game and competitive resolve.  i.e. motivation to actually practice, not just attend leagues here and there.  It's always been perplexing to me that the KC area doesn't regularly have top card players at big tourneys.  I think the volume of tournaments available here now is helping to raise the overall quality of players in KC. But I believe road tripping is necessary to push our best players to the next level.

During our last Club Elections there was a map that showed the disc golfer population in our city and it showed beyond a doubt that there are more disc golfers on the West side.  I know someone from the club can produce this map for us here. 

Hmmm, I would be interested in seeing that data.   If the above is true, I would find it somewhat surprising given more courses and greater population base on MO Side. But if there is a disproportionately larger club membership on KS side, there is actually a bigger problem to solve within the club.

Statistically, west side seems to have an edge winning four consecutive times.I'll do my research to support my theory next.

No need to dig.  I think Jose's point is that west side has a greater number of quality players than east side.  But that's the entire basis of this competition; Which side is better.  Then which side can bring their best game on Challenge weekend.  Jose appears to get bitter in defeat because he is a passionate competitor.   

Despite our differences in opinion around the Team Challenge, I personal enjoy seeing Jose's name consistently high up in tourney results against the best in country. And now with the Challenge over, I can go back to rooting for him again.
