Same ranger that installed the Longview Course at Perry Lake is installing a new course at Bloomington Park on the west side of Clinton Lake west of Lawrence.  Technically, this is Clinton, KS.  Kent Bryan helped lay out the course itself.

Should be open mid-summer?

Tee pads have been poured. Some clearing has been done. This course is more open and less maintenance then Longview is. Very nice tee pads. From what I could tell, some wooded holes, some wide open holes, good use of elevation. Easily accessible to other park features like camping, etc., so I think it will be used more by people just getting into the game.





From what I can tell, several holes will be in this area.  I'm certain the grass will be mowed down.

Carolyn's Dirty Water Open at Rose Park in McLouth, KS on May 28, 2016.

The work crews out at Rose Park have done quite a bit of work on the back holes around the pond.  It will be noticeably better than it was last year when it was only 6 weeks old at tournament time.

This will be a ratings based tournament similiar to the Big Blue Monster last fall.

Registration is open.  Tournament flyer will be posted soon.

All divisions are $25. 

Gold division is Pro - Open and will pay as Cash or Merchandise credit for those that want to retain Am status.

Rest of divisions pays as merchandise.
All ams will receive a Gateway disc (various molds will be available).

Purle division (<800 Rating) will receive a bonus pack item with no additional payout.

Registration is here:

KANZA KRUSH presented by INNOVA CHAMPION DISCS

First Maverick DG tournament in 2016. 

Registration opens 1/1/16 at 12 Noon.

http://dgscene.com/KanzaKrush2016

Two rounds of 18 holes at Kanza Park.  Long and Short Tees will be utilized. Rec Men, Rec Women, Intermediate Women, all Juniors and Advanced Senior Grandmaster will use short tees.

PDGA Sanctioned C/B-Tier Tournament. PDGA Membership is not required, but a $10 fee will apply for non-members. PDGA membership / fee does not apply to Junior divisions.

$47 - Open
$42 - Pro Women, Master, Grandmaster
$32 - All Advanced Divisions
$27 - All Intermediate Divisions
$21 - All Recreational Divisions
$17 - Junior 1 & 3, Boys and Girls

In the registration process, if there is not a division open that you would like to see open, let me know, and I'll open it.  However, if a minimum of 4 participants are not in the division, there is a 90% likelihood it will be condensed down to the next appropriate division.

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

More information will be provided later regarding player pack, any modified layouts, etc.  As we did last year, the tee boxes will be expanded to allow players to use the small triangle concrete markers, or the grass to the side.

Player Pack for all Ams. Disc selections will be announced later after Innova order confirmation.

There will be a CTP or Win your Card, Win a Prize. Prize item yet to be determined.

There used to be 2 very 'meh' 9 hole courses at Clinton Lake State Park Lawrence KS.  They were pulled due to baskets being stolen.  A new 11-hole course with defined fairways that combine the best of the previous 2 has been reinstalled.  The flow is a lot different and I was very glad to see it put back.  It is a ton better.  I would recommend giving it a try this winter.  it does cost to get into Kansas State Parks.

Found and Lost / BB5098

Who marks their discs BB5098?

Harold is working and Jeff is sick (?).

I offered to run it this week.

Considering Blue Valley MO with showmeDoug's new settings.  Once it is confirmed where the settings are and playability, I'll make the final call.  Hopefully by Thursday mid-afternoon.

It may just be one afternoon round.  Or, we may actually travel between rounds. 

I'll post more later.

General Banter / What types of beer do disc golfers like?
« on: December 06, 2015, 06:40:23 pm »
I think that maybe my view on beer may skew what I think other disc golfers drink, so I'm curious on what you actually prefer.  This could be good information not only for the events I run, but also for those that help with Disc Golf Day, Ice Bowl, KCWO, etc.

Prost!

Tournaments / Ratings Based Tournaments
« on: December 02, 2015, 01:17:40 pm »
What are your thoughts on Ratings Based Tournaments (vs. Division Based Tournaments).  Big Blue Monster was a ratings based tournie.

I have my opinions on them but I'm interested in hearing yours.

« on: November 25, 2015, 10:03:20 am »
Could I please get some clarrification whether the KCWO 2016 will be split or not?  I thought I read that it was, then it wasn't, but am not sure.  If it is going to be split, when will the second installment be?  Thanks.

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.
