Some very cool things are happening in Lawrence for disc golf.

Last Saturday, 20+ people showed up to help move the old Mach IIIs from Centennial out to the Riverfront course and move the newer Mach V's to Centennial.  Our goal is within the next year to raise money for brand new baskets for the Centennial, move the Mach V's back to the river, and find a new use for the Mach IIIs.

After moving the baskets on Saturday and playing a random doubles round, a handful of people went out to Clinton State Park (on the east side of lake) to begin maping out 7 more holes to make that 11-hole course a full 18-hole course.

The Tuesday night league handled forever by Hans Coleman is on a rotating schedule between Centennial, Riverfront, Clinton Lake State Park and Poke & Hope (a private course on west side of  town) with formats of singles, doubles, Wolf, etc.

Meeting last week with the Lawrence P&R, they are finally open to making Riverfront a legit full 18-hole course.  Very, very freaking cool.  Part of their requirement for working with the players (sharing keys to locks, planting trees at Centennial, working at expanding Riverfront) is that they want an organized group.

Therefore, the league (club) will be having an election for a 7-person board on April 25.

Juniors Disc Golf / Atchison Aviatrix junior side event, May 6, 2017
« on: April 12, 2017, 02:19:31 PM »


Besides the regular 2 rounds of 18 hole event for the Atchison Aviatrix, there will also be a Junior II (15 & Under), III, IV and V (8 & Under) side event where they will be playing 2 rounds of 9 holes (probably back to back).

It is a PDGA B-Tier for Ams, so the juniors will get a rated round and points if that is something you are interested in.  Regarding a player pack, the juniors at the side event will get a tournament stamped DX Leopard, DX Shark or Black DX Aviar.  Additionally, the first 95 players for any division (Pro, Am, Junior big course or Junior small course) will also get an XT Atlas as part of Innova's sponsorship. 

Organized junior event, PDGA sanctioning, 1-2 discs, for $12.  I'm actually losing money on this.

To be aware, the junior 9 hole course is shorter than the normal course, but it is not 'easy'.  There is still significant elevation, some holes actually have some distance (one is 420') and OB roads surround the park.  There can also be wind depending on weather.  However, compared to the Jackson Park 18-hole course it is easier.

Think of Blue Valley in KCMO.  The junior 9 is easier, but it's not easy.  It too has significant elevation, OB sidewalks, one hole is 400', can also be very windy...pretty much like Jackson Park 9.

Here is the dgscene page for the Jackson Park 9.

Junior I (18 & Under) are invited to play in the longer 2 rounds of 18 main event.

Regular PDGA C/B Tier for most divisions consisting of two rounds of 18 holes on regular course.

We are running a juniors/novice event this year. Two rounds of 9 holes on the Jackson Park 9-hole course. Very inexpensive entry of $12 for this side event.

http://dgscene.com/AtchisonAviatrix2017

Player Packs:

First 95 players to sign up (Pro, Am and Juniors) will receive an XT Atlas.

In addition, All Ams and Juniors that play the full 2 rounds 36 hole main event will also get on Innova Champion koozie and to choose one of these choices:

Champion Mamba
Champion Mako3
Champion Metal Flake Ape
Champ MF Destroyer
Champ MF Super Stingray
Pro Thunderbird
Glow champion Cobra (with Innova stamp, not tournie stamp)
Shimmer Star Rhyno
Yeti Pro Aviar

or 2 DX discs:
DX Leopard
DX Shark
Black DX Aviar

All juniors in the 1 round, 18 hole side event can choose 1 of the following:
DX Leopard
DX Shark
Black DX Aviar

Reiterate:
Pros - XT Atlas (if one of first 95)
Ams/Juniors - XT Atlas (if one of first 95) + Tournament disc (or 2 DX discs) + koozie
Juniors in side event - XT Atlas (if one of first 95) + Tournament DX disc

While the signup page shows 117 spots available, only 90 are for the main event (2 rounds of 18) and 27 are for the side event (1 round of 18 on the 9 hole course).

This event is a part of the Maverick Disc Golf 2017 Series Driven by INNOVA.  There will be a total of $1800 worth of additional vouchers and merchandise at the end of the season.  Some of it is awarded on performance and some of it will be awarded as a free random drawing for those that participate.  Either way, the more you play, the better your chances at the extra stuff.  More information can be found here:

Registration opens up for the Kanza Krush '17 Presented by Innova Discs Wednesday morning, Jan. 4th.

We will be using two sets of tees. Long tees will be used for all Pro divisions, All Advanced divisions (except Adv. Master Women if there are enough), and Intermediate men. Short tees will be used for Adv. Master Women, Intermediate Women, all Recreational divisions and all Junior divisions.

For those that register early (by Feb. 19), there will be a bonus player pack consisting of an Innova premimum disc, Innova beanie, 2017 disc golf calendar, DewFly towel, sticker sheet and pencil. This is available for all amateurs, and for pros as well (for an extra $20) if you register early. Additionally, if you want to, you can add a long sleeve shirt for an additional $7.50 OR a hoodie for an additional $20. This is also available to pros that opt to purchase a player pack (but not to pros that don't opt to purchase a player pack).

The large player pack is only available for paid early registrations.  After early registration closes, the player pack will be a premium disc and some other item not yet determined.

Finally, because registering after on-line registration closes is so problematic, for all tournaments going forward there will be a $3 additional charge to register after online closes including day of walk ups (if there is room).

Tournaments / Maverick Disc Golf 2017 Series Driven by INNOVA
« on: December 17, 2016, 04:07:51 PM »
UPDATED FLYER WITH CORRECTED DATE FOR CAROLYN'S DIRTY WATER OPEN
and
ADDED FREE STATE FLING at Bloomington Park, Clinton Lake, KS.




Super excited to announce a more cohesive tournament set-up for 2017. Besides normal player packs, trophies, and payouts for each individual tournament, there will also be year-end bonus payout and prizes worth $1800!

A total of $570 merchandise credit will be given away based on accumulated points for finishes at Series events. The merchandise credit will be available to both Pro and Amateur divisions and will be redeemed at INNOVA’S Pro shop (https://proshop.innovadiscs.com ). The points structure will be similar to the PDGA NT Event points and listed below.

Additionally, there will be six large ticket items that will include an INNOVA DISCatcher Pro 28, the new mid-grade INNOVA basket (not yet released), an INNOVA DISCatcher Sport and a Traveler or Skillshot. There will also be two bags given, a ProtoBag (not yet released) and a HeroPack. These items will be rewarded at the end of the season via a drawing. Each tournament you play in, regardless of division, will get you one entry. The more tournaments you play, the more entries you will have.

In total, this amounts to over $1800 worth of product given by INNOVA directly to you for participating (and excelling in case of the point finishes) in tournaments that are a part of the Maverick DG Series Driven by INNOVA.

POINTS DISTRIBUTION:



Points are awarded based on place for each division. If you play in more than one division throughout the year, your points will be added up by division and the division where you accumulated the most points will be the division available for payout. So if you mostly play Intermediate, but occasionally play Advanced Master, you retain all of your points for both divisions but are placed in the division you played in the most – Intermediate. There are no Pro or Am points, just points, as payout for all divisions is merchandise credit at the Innova Pro Shop. If you DNF – Do Not Finish a tournament, no points will be rewarded.

PROJECTED PAYOUT:
This was based on approximately $1 per person for select events in 2016 that at the time would carry over to the Series in 2017. Slight adjustments have already been made as to what tournaments were selected to be in the Series and what wasn’t.

Most divisions will have their own payout structure. For some divisions that have historically lower turnout, multiple divisions will be combined for the additional payout. For example, Pro Women and all Pro Divisions outside of Open are in one BONUS payout division. Each are rewarded their own points, (First place in their own division gets 100 points, Second place gets 95, etc.) however all players for those divisions will be combined and the top point winner will get the First Place payout, second point winner will get the Second Place payout, etc. This would also apply to all Groupings as described below.

BONUS LARGE TICKET ITEMS:
Each tournament you play, regardless of division, gets you one entry into the year-end drawing. Simple as that. Plan on picking up the large ticket items in Lawrence, KS. A case by case compromise can be made on alternate plans for delivery for those that cannot pick up in Lawrence, KS. We can work that out when the time comes.  If you live in the Kansas City metro, I work in Overland Park and we can work out a way to get the item to you.

Barter Town / Lots of homebrew equipment
« on: December 10, 2016, 10:54:30 PM »
I homebrewed my own beer for 25 years from 1990 - 2015.  I've finally decided to give it up.  I have a ton of stuff for sale, primarily centered around brewing 10-12 gallon batches.  If you are interested, I have it listed on Lawrence Brewers' Guild facebook page.

PLEASE, PRE-REGISTER.
