I've been getting a lot of questions about the Saturday vs. Sunday Wrangle in the Woods.

They are two separate tournaments.

You don't have to play in one in order to play in the other.  Play only Saturday or only Sunday or both.

Saturday is 2 rounds set to medium length.  It is a B-Tier.  Higher costs, larger player pack, higher payouts.

Sunday is 1 round set to maximum length.  Lower costs, lower payouts.  Player 'pack' is for Rec and Jrs. only in the form of a voucher for you to choose what you want.  All other divisions are payouts based on 100% of net.

Sunday will have common PDGA divisions, such as Open, Advanced, Intermediate, Recreational.  These four divisions will be open no matter what.  Juniors and Women divisions will open up for 1 or more players.  All other divisions (Pro Masters, Advanced Masters, Advanced GM) will need a minimum of 3 to open the division.  In the registration process, all divisions are currently open, but if not enough are open they may be collapsed to a least common denominator division (which is the same for all tournaments really).

$17 Pro divisions
$16 Am divisions

You do not need to pre-register, but it is always appreciated and will make the morning go smoother.  Pre-registration is here:

Player registration at 9:30 AM.  Player meeting at 10 AM.  Meet at Hog Holler Saloon. 

Tournaments / Family Promise Fling benefit tournament Sunday 10/25/15
« on: October 04, 2015, 02:07:13 pm »

Family Promise Fling will be a one rounder somewhat casual tournament to raise money and awareness for Family Promise of Lawrence.  Family Promise is an organization that specifically helps homeless families (i.e. at least one child with one adult) to find safe housing, food, assistance and recovery back into more permanent housing. 

Mission Statement:

Our mission is to transform the lives of homeless children and their families by providing safe shelter, food, counseling, and training in partnership with local communities of faith through hospitality and daily living support in a compassionate setting.  The program is designed to address the needs of families and equip them to move into permanent housing as quickly as possible.

Cost is $20 for three available divisions: Experienced, Intermediate, Beginner.  Player pack will be one Innova DX disc, plus beer for those of legal age donated by Yankee Tank Brewing based in Lawrence, KS.  There will be other small payouts, and raffles for a basket, bags, etc.

Pre-registration is not required by greatly appreciated:

Found and Lost / Found: Star Vulcan at Liberty
« on: September 06, 2015, 03:20:58 pm »
Found Star Vulcan at Liberty Bad Rock over a month ago.  (Forgot about it)

There was a name and number on the back at one time.  All but first name crossed out. 

Provide the first name and color...

Maverick Disc Golf's first B-Tier:

This is actually two events on the same weekend, same course.

Saturday, 10/10/15 is a B-Tier.  Course will be set with various pin locations and average a 'medium' seting.

Saturday Registration:

Sunday, 10/11/15 is a C-Tier.  This will be a one rounder with every pin set long. 

Sunday Registraion:

Saturday will have $500 added cash to the PRO divisions.  MPO and FPO divisions are open even if one person registers.  In order to open up a second division, at least four players need to be in the requested division.  If less than four players are in a division at tee time, the divisions will collapse to the next closest division.

Saturday's Am Player's Pack will be one stock stamped Hyzerbomb disc, Maverick dri-fit tee shirt, nice reusable plastic pint cup, and one free drink at Hog Holler (good for one tap beer, well drink, or pop).

Player packs for all Amateurs. Advanced and Intermediate divisions will have added merchandise payouts beyond player packs. Recreational and Junior divisions are Player Pack only.

Sunday: Pro divisions will pay 100% of net entries.  Rec and Junior ams will receive a $17 voucher.  Advanced and Intermediate will have no player packs and 100% of net entries paid as merchandise credit.  (Net entry fee = Entry fee - PDGA fee which is $2 per person for C-Tiers).

Optional Saturday Meal:
For Saturday, Hog Holler is running a special of pulled pork sandwich, beans, potatoe salad and drink for $8.  Normally, just a sandwich and fries is $8.  So, the potatoe salad is substituted for fries (for quicker serving) + beans and drink for free with the special.  You can preorder your meal during registration to pay for it all at once.

Sunday meal?  Probably not due to the start time. (See Below)

Saturday check in: 8 - 8:45am.  Player meeting at 8:45.  Tee time will be set at player meeting.

Sunday check in: 9:30 -  10am.  Player meeting at 10 am.  Tee time will be set at player meeting.  While not confirmed yet, I'm presumming the kitchen will be open after the round if you want to order some food.

Camping - Longview campground closes 10/1/15.  However, Slough Creek campground, a Corp of Engineers facility will be open until 10/15/15.  Camping is $12 - $18 depending on what hook ups you need.  I did check the place out - the tent area is pretty cool and overlooks the lake.

Saturday: Instead of $ payout, a Hyzerbomb Flak Bag will be given for the Ace Fund. If no ace is hit, a CTP will be done after 2nd rnd to determine winner. If more than 1 ace, then only those players will do CTP. When 41 players opt for Fund, a 2nd bag will be given.
No ace fund for Sunday - it will all be set extra long.

The first tournament at Longview - the Longview Open - was my tournament that sold out the fastest.
While I don't want to hype it up, with the extra cash, nicer player pack, probably nicer weather, ability to camp and play a third round on Sunday, you may want to consider signing up early for this one.

Eisenhower State Park, aka Melvern Lake

Two rounds of 18 holes.




Eisenhower / Melvern is more open than wooded, but there are some definite wood holes and one particular hole (15) where you drive off a hill (cliff) over water to reach the other side.  There is some landing area if you want to set up first.

This is a Kansas state park, park entrance fee is required.  There is also quite a bit of camping available from tent areas to RV's, to cabins and yurts.  They even have facilities for horse camping.  Yes, you can bring your horse to camp with you.

Park Fee schedule:

$7-19?/night camping based on how many utilities you want and that 10/3/15 is two days after the 'Off Season' rates kick in.

I will be camping at Maime's Cabin near hole 15 for sure Friday night and maybe Saturday night too.  Check in will be there at the cabin 8:30 - 9:00 am Saturday morning.


I'm going.

Looking for a room mate.  I'll be there Friday and Saturday nights staying at the TownePlace Suites.  Really need someone who does not snore.  Prefer non-smoker, but if you smoke outside I'm ok with it.  Actually, the entire hotel is smoke free from what I see.  I do drink beer, etc. in my room but generally don't get stupid about it. 




Two rounds  of 18 holes. 

Players pack for Ams will include a tournament stamped Innova disc and an Innova sticker.

Following are the disc choices.

Aviar - Champion Metal Flake

Innova patch
(Innova) Air Force patch
Innova Lapel pin
Innova License plate frame

$5 - Dynamic Discs Ace / CTP fund:
Instead of $ payout, a DD Ranger Bag will be given for the Ace Fund. If no ace is hit, a CTP will be done after 2nd rnd to determine winner. If more than 1 ace, then only those players will do CTP. When 41 players opt for Fund, a 2nd bag will be given.

Pleasant Hill / Water for PDGA Monday league 7/13/15
« on: July 12, 2015, 03:07:21 pm »
I think we should have some extra water available for Monday night due to the extreme heat.  I do have a 5 gallon water cooler.  I can get ice for it.  Are there working water spigots at the park? Thinking probably over by the camp ground area?

If someone is willing to take care of it all, bring a cooler, ice and water, I'll let you.
