Like I said I'm not too worried about it. I'm happy to have a 1 by my name for that tourney.

09 city of fountains. I payed 23$ got a nice shirt for the players pack. I think there were 6 or 7 in am1. I won, got 8 kckash and no trophy. I'm comparing that to 2010 kalamazoo championship. I payed 25$ including ace fund and got a nice disc. Although I didn't win, Larry Labond paid first place 60 and second place 40 and only 5 played. I'm sure there is a whole bunch of factors thrown in there to set apart TD's that I don't know, so that's why I don't really care, because there is probably a bigger picture that I'm missing. I'll definitely be coming back for the wide open when I don't play usadgc or if they're on different weekends. I wish I could afford to play wide open pro field, but donating 160$ to feldberg and nikko just doesn't sound that fun or reasonable to me after travel money and junk. And like I said I'm sure there are different factors that seperate TD's and maybe those 2 tourneys aren't the best to compare each other to but that's the kind of stuff that stands out to players over time. And of course my experience is way worse than others I'm sure. Cause I bet at the wide open the trophy's are already made and ordered and sitting at the scorers table and you don't have to wait on em.

I don't want to come off as bitter because I really don't care now about that past tourney. Everyone has different reasons for playing and not playing certain tourneys and you can't make everyone happy at every tourney. I prefer non trophy tourneys.

I won a jack lowe tourney in am1 once and got 8 kc kash, and was supposed to get a "trophy" disc. That was oct 09 and still haven't gotten a trophy disc. I don't care about it now. But why would I play a jack lowe trophy only tourney now. I'm sure I'll play another one of jacks tourneys, but now I won't expect anything from it. I think other than the KC wide open that kansas city disc golf caters more to the recreation side of disc golfing and not as much to the sanctioning side. Which is ok, but people like certain TD's more than others and certain tourneys more than others. I like jack lowe tourneys, but I'll just have to keep in mind the am payout will be crappy :) thoughts and opinions... And michigan clubs are just as alive as KC... even more so in the winter. These guys are crazy up here.

Well said Chappy! That about sums it all up. I guess all the ams do stay up here for usadgc. You wanna talk about a bagger state, geez michigan. Everyone up here stays am because they wanna win usadgc! With this tourney being in our back yard. And you always see the same pros winning because not a lot of pros leave michigan. It is nice having a tournament 1.5 hrs away from me EVERY weekend. And haterade, if you ask around about jack lowe tourneys I'm sure you'll hear all about em.

I know about 20 ams up here in michigan that did not wanna play wide open due to trophy only. I'm not sure what's going on in KC but Larry Labond (08 world's TD) tourney's in michigan have been far better in one year than KC tourneys were in 3 yrs I played there, except for Loomis' olathe open. I know you probably don't care if 20 michiganders come down there, but that's just what I can add in this convo. I along with a lot of ams aren't set on trophy only. And I know I've said this before but I "won" a trophy at 09 city of fountains that I have yet to receive. So what would make me ever wanna play a "trophy only" tourney again? I heard horrible things about Jack Lowe tourney's but still gave em a shot. Poorly ran tourneys news will spread throughout the USA!! Loomis and Larry Labond for President!!! Come play Michigan, you won't be disappointed!!! Well, at the right TD tourneys! :)

Somebody help me out. the champion bosses that were fundraisers for the 09 worlds and have the worlds stamp on em. Are those first run champ bosses, or just regular champ bosses?

that's true. it can be very helpful if you study. i do a lot of studying top players forms. but different people learn different ways. some beginners probably dont even know what they would be looking for in form. footwork, what's your non throwing hand doing, x step, release angle, etc etc etc. but i think that would be a good way to keep growing the sport. i know there's plenty of good players in KC that can teach well. i'll be here in michigan cheering you guys on.  ;D
