Rosedale / Re: Rosedale Park closing this summer

I also heard that today was April 1st and only fools fall for fake news. And of course, republicans...

So question:
I currently live in Missouri, but moving to Kansas prior to tournament. Born in Lawrence so I guess that makes me more of a Kansas guy historically. Technically tied for Kansas qualification at Rosedale and will do best to qualify for MO. But are there any rules/precedents on this?

The whole historical,  where your heart is, thing was shot down last year.   You  can only play for the team on the side which you live.

So what's the residency cut-off? It could be set as the date of the event.  But I think the fairest thing to do, for the captains, is to put the cut-off at 2 weeks prior to the event.  That is when tentative rosters are supposed to be set each year.  Where you reside, on that date, ultimately determines which side you're eligible for. This year that date is May 24th.   

I think it logical that if you qualify for one side, then move to the other side of the line, your spot on the moved-from team doesn't travel with you. 

Babbit, Joe would have to determine what he'll do about the tied for spot. But begs the question; do you have to live on the side when you qualify for that side?


If we are drafting players to Kansas, we will take Kelly Babbit and give you Dick Parker. I kid, I kid...

I'd rather not...

It's a par 3... just not a good one.

I believe that I should have a right to know what the players pack is.

Thank you for your volunteerism last year. Please provide me your phone # and I'll make sure you are the first person I call when it has been decided.

Currently, it is only online. I may work up a form in the coming days that I can accept some registrations at the two stores. The problem is that I don't want registration coming from too many places where it gets hard to control the different divisions. I'll let everyone know if and when that becomes an option.

I'm still trying to fill some positions. So whomever may be in charge of one pool right now may be somewhere else in a month. But currently Drew Nitzel is the D Pool director. I am the tournament director for everything though as well as the A Pool director. Scott Reek is also a Pool director. There are many people make this happen.

Do you think it is appropriate or even fair for a Tournament Director to only use Facebook in order to let player know that they are going to lose their spot because they haven't passed their test yet?

No, the TD should call them, I have done that in the past, I have gone as far as informing them that there will be a "written version" available for them to take prior to the event, and it will be waiting for you at course X.

Facebook is one method, but clearly not the main method a TD should contact their folks.

Well, I won't call the guy out and it wasn't me, rather a friend, but...He said that he didn't have time to contact everyone who broke the rules". I was like, well I'm sure that they didn't know they were "breaking the rules" and could use a phone call or email to let them know...but you have time to get on Facebook?? dude.

If your scared, just say your scared. You don't have to play games. Or I guess you do since you haven't won in the last two tries.

Namely, Tournaments.

I think if you are going to run an event you should call or email participants directly if you are going to take their spot away and not assume they are addicted to facebook like you are. Just an opinion.

Sorry, I'm riled up about this right now and had to ask.

I will also have a qualifier at swope to keep the west side team on their heels in not knowing exactly which course we will use until the official announcement is made on the Sunday course for the challenge.

Are you saying you will not announce the course we are playing until that day? I don't really think you can do that. We should be able to plan where we have to go on Sunday. While I'm all for gamesmanship, we should know where the F we are playing. Don't be that guy.

Online registration is now open at Disc Golf Scene. Please remember that we will adjust caps on divisions as those begin to fill as we see fit. Hopefully everyone reading this is either helping or playing. If not, please remember to get out there and show your support by watching a little disc golf in Kansas City.

A Tier Registration!

B Tier Registration!

I'm curious, John, why would you add excessive drive time when not necessary. Knocking out courses on the same property just helps with driving and running low on time. I think the golf is the part that actually wears one out.

A lot of the problem is the bathrooms aren't heated. So the water lines can freeze.
