Tournaments / Re: 2015 KC Corporate Challenge

Everyone forgets about the long pad on 16.   ;)

Yeah, I don't forget about it, but it just isn't in play generally except for the Gold layout.  As such.....I failed to mention it accordingly....

Soo...good catch! ;D

I love the 16 long layout with the pin set up by the road.

I'm going with John to meet with the parks department today at 4:00. I'll bring it up to him.

I'll either be there, or at Pleasant Hill helping Aaron install tee signs.

This will be a sacrifice : KU plays at 11am.

Current format:Jones West at 9am, Peter Pan at 1pm.
Then beers on Steeler. (I won't cheer for KU till I get home to watch the recording of KU's win.).

Anybody notice that Steeler didn't show up for beers?

Jack, this is definitely one of the things I like about you. You sure are opinionated and passionate, but you're also not afraid to admit when you may have stepped too far. That takes a good attitude. I don't think anybody would ever question that you have the disc golf community's best interests in your mind.

Saturday May 30 Wyco park will be closed for a 5k. Black light run. Tickets $20 and VIP $45 until March 25 after that $40 and VIP $75.

Thumbs up for advanced notice!

What time are you hoping to start next week Kujo, 5 or 5:30?

Read as: I'm going to raise hell because I don't want a tournament at a course by my house? I don't know why this is turning to gripe on Rob. He's trying to address concerns and has done his best at past tournaments to work with locals to improve course flow for safety *SEE: Atchison/Damon Morgan*. Instead of complaining to the parks department and taking a quote totally out of context, why don't you offer to help with course flow to have a great tournament near your house. You wrote two sentences, all negative, and provided zero corrective feedback to improve the situation. I'm sure you do a lot for disc golf out there Dan, and I'm really not meaning this as a negative post. I just am tired of seeing posts turn into dog on Rob for trying to incorporate little used courses in tournament play.

You missed my point completely Rob. It's not about how the Kanza DGC will affect your tournament but how your tournament is going to affect Kanza DGC, the closest course to my house.

It doesn't seem like you gave much thought to my concerns so I'll take them up with the Ottawa Parks Dept, they may take them a little more seriously. I'm sure they are going to love your "not central park" quote.

Yes, I cleared it with the city.  That is always my first step.

Most courses have limited parking that cannot accomodate a full tourney.  Centennial Lawrence, Longview Perry, Blue Valley KCMO for example.  We'll deal with it.

Tee pads are taking care of by utilizing flags and allowing people to tee from grass besides the tee pad or behind tee pad.  Personally, I think the pads are no big deal when you look at the size comparred to the amount of space you have when you are driving from a lye in a fairway (directly behind your disc / marker, 11", etc.)  If it is really bothersome, you can use the marked natural pad.

We will have alternate tee pads.  Short for Junior, Rec, Rec Women, Int. Women and maybe Adv. Grandmaster.  Long for others.  Some of the long tees will be the walking trail.  It is Ottawa, not Central Park.  It isn't that busy.

Players and pedestrians will need to be careful regarding each other as with any tournament.  Both can manage.  It will be OK.

Tournaments I intend to run will not be 'normal' tournaments on normal courses using the same ol', same ol'.  Grow the sport by providing alternate options to the same old thing.  Some will like it, others won't.  Vanilla and chocolate options.

Defiance Beer returns as a sponsor.  Yum.

Thank you.

Young Park - Blue Springs / Re: League?

Wilbur needs a league.. I cant do wednesdays
Anyone interested in thursdays?
What about monday? Cliff is on haitus

matty, if you want to run a league it's mostly up to what night works well for you. While it's certainly hard to compete with Water Works or Swope on Tuesday or Thursday, it's really a different demographic. I don't recall seeing many of the names from the Wilbur Young league out at Water Works on Thursday's. I think the leagues you're likely to pull from would be Liberty (Wednesday) and Lee's Summit (Friday). I'm sending you a message now about a meeting for potential league coordinators this Wednesday if you can make it.

The top OPEN finishers.

Why would it matter what division they played if they shot a lower score on the same day in the same pin settings?

Can you move the pin into the woods to the left of middle 8 or that part of the area where the trail will be?  Just thinking out loud...believe that is still part of the park.

Now that would be an idea, of course that might be where the trail is coming from.

I've recently been hired to a new job. Golf took a back seat there for a sec. I'm just going to have to come out Monday real soon. I'll PM you when I know my schedule. I'm still holding them!

Where'd you get a new job at? Going to the home opener tomorrow night I assume?

I might be doing some league at Raymore on Friday nights.  But first I have to get our course finished first.  Half done...  YESSSS!!!  Actually more than half done.  I hope to have a ribbon cutting ceremony this spring.  I have a Facebook group started, if you want to be added let me know.

Half done is more done than it was last time I was out there. I'll have to come check it out. Sounds fun.

Thank you Crispian.

I got into this sport to have fun. Anyone else?

I got in this sport because I'm a massochist.

I could run a Tuesday league at SMP.  Someone would have to fill me on the payouts and such, since i've not done it before.

Did anybody follow up with you on this Mike? I think you would be great as a league coordinator. I just hadn't seen this mentioned.
