WYCO / Wide Open Prep workdays for Wyco
« on: May 04, 2014, 09:39:52 PM »
With the Wide Open coming to the fabulous course at Wyandotte county park, we're looking to hold a workday to get a few items of course work done.  Mainly the following:

1) Clear dead wood from the course and woods, where in play.
2) Re-stain the tee signs.
3) Spray Poison Ivy throughout the course.
4) Fill to grade. the front of several tee pads
5) other ideas?

The above are basically in order of priority.  The more we have out helping to get Wyco ready to shine for the Wide Open, then better. Saturday the 24th is looking best for my schedule.  What about all the Wyco supporters? 

We will for certain be working on the weekend of June 14/15, prior to the KCWO to paint street OBs, place temporary OB flags and install new Flags/poles. In addition to final course tuning.  I will also be looking for help each evening during the week prior to the WO to put out the event OB rope and string.

But let me know what you all think about May 24th for the general prep workday.

Tournaments / 2013 Kansas City Team Challenge - June 1-2, 2013
« on: October 23, 2012, 04:34:35 PM »
Announcing the second annual Kansas City Team Challenge

Hosting rights will flip flop from East to West each year.  The "Host" team gets 2 rounds (24 points worth of matches) on the course of their captains choice. The other round (8 points worth of matches) is played on the opposing teams turf.  2012 version was slightly different, but allowed a first Host to be determined for this year.  By virtue of their win in 2012, the East side will be the host team for 2013. Host team will alternate each year.  2014 will be West hosted.  2015 will be East hosted etc. 

Date:
June 1st and 2nd

Format:
Teams of 16 players (plus alternates) from KS. and MO. each to compete in match play of three formats (alternate shot doubles, best shot doubles and singles). Each match will be worth one point. East Side can retain the Eagle trophy with 16 points or more. The West side has to get 16.5 points or more to win the trophy.

Where:
Wyco - afternoon of Saturday the June 1st, for 8 alternate shot doubles matches.
Cliff Drive, on Sunday, June 2nd for the 8 best shot doubles matches in the morning and 16 singles matches after lunch.

Who:
Captains:
MO - East Side - Ryan Keck
KS - West Side - Tracy Walker
Players:
To be determined!  Possibly a combination of spots obtained via qualifying or captains picks.  I'm leaving it up to the Captain of each side to determine how to build their team. I think we should stick with the 2 Women, 3 Masters (min.) and 11 Open players as required composition of each team.

Cost:
$25. Unless you already have an official team jersey for your side, in which case it is just $10. $10 to support tree planting at KC area courses.

I'll provide more details as Ryan and I determine how we're going to form our teams.  June will get here sooner than you think.

Tournaments / East vs West Team Championship
« on: December 27, 2011, 12:49:41 PM »
move discussion here to stop thread drift on KCFDC board topic

Some basic thoughts on the event:

It will be a fund raiser.  All proceeds, less awards, will go to a beneficiary to be determined.

This is a club member only event.  However, in addition to being a club member, participants will have to compete in a certain number of summer leagues prior to a predetermined date (probably something like 2 weeks before the Team Championship event). This is to deter "ringers." 

Each team will have 16 players. The teams will be comprised of 10 players from qualifying event(s), 4 Captains picks and 2 lottery winners.  Each team will carry 10 Open, 4 Masters(minimum) and 2 Women.

The team Captains will be the club VP of each state. Currently John Theiss for MO. and Jim Sherwood for KS.  If they can't or don't want to be a Captain, they should be responsible to find someone to take their place.

The competition will be a two day, 3 round event, with 2 rounds of doubles matches on Saturday and 1 round of singles matches on Sunday.  Each match is worth 1 point (1 for a Win, 0 for a loss or .5 for a halve) for a total of 32 points. 16.5 needed to claim the Championship.

I'll present this with more detail to the BoD.  Basically, I'll be looking for their event support, some funding to secure a perpetual trophy and advice on a good charity to support.
