First off I would like to thank everyone for voting. After thinking about it I have decided the A Tier will be Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The format is still to be decided but It will likely be 4 rounds w/ a final 9. Each Pool will play at least 2 courses. And I will use a minimum of 3 courses at this point. Possibly a 4th. I'm really playing with the idea of only 3 courses so that I can staff each course well to give players the best experience.

I would sincerely appreciate help from anyone and everyone who would like to be involved. After the new year I will start to reach out to a lot of you whom I know have helped in the past to do so again. If you haven't helped but want to help please feel free to PM me, email me dick@discgolfworld.com or simply call me (if you have my #). I hope to make this the best damn A Tier event of the year and to do that I need a lot of help.

I don't want the fact that we are not an NT this year to take away from this event. We are one of the longest and strongest ran events in the history of Disc Golf and we should all be proud to call it ours. I hope most of you feel the same way and whether or not you play in this event this year or not I still can use your help. So please do not be shy to reach out to me. I'm waiting to hear from you... hello?

I will likely follow the 6-6-4 qualifying format as well, with 6 spots selected at the Rosedale Open.

As for course selection, we should be playing at a course that plays to the EAST SIDE's strengths, and I have a few ideas on that front.  However, that discussion should take place in a more private setting.  :-X

First of all, keep your Qualifiers in your own state.

Secondly, Heritage and Lakeside are bluff moves to get you to go practice them.  Meanwhile, we will be practicing on our own private temp course, that will only be revealed to Least-siders on tee-time.  ;D


Last.....what strengths?

Bwahaha! They are strong at losing...

Joe for President.. or at least captain, 2015!

I think you already have the job.

Nor is Jack deciding what courses will be used. 
Nor will any of the courses on the outskirts of the city be used good as they may be.
Nor will any of it matter UNLESS YOU WANT TO RUN THE EVENT YOURSELF.

Just vote on the poll folks, that's all he has asked for.

At this point Water Works will be used. That I can say for certain. I'm probably going to use Swope as well. As for any other courses, that is still up in the air. Starting in January I will be calling on anyone who would like to be involved again or for the first time to meet with us and help decide the future. We had great meetings last year that seemed to help make for a strong event. We will continue that practice.

We are not even talking about courses here, we are not DD, and this is not the GBO. Nor is their model the reason they have 900 people. You are brainwashed to think that they poop gold.

But thank you for your input.

No i didn't like mine. And i had 2 identical answers.

Ok, so I'm trying to figure out what to do with the 2015 KC Wide Open. Please submit... or resubmit your vote for what you think would be the best way to go. The poll is not going to dictate what I will eventually decide but it will help me understand the local favorite.

Yes I will use Water Works this year so... vote!

is the rosedale cup a qualifier for team challenge, and replacing kan-u-wyco? I still nominate dresser as captain and would like to see junior and women involved


What do you do when one side can not fill a junior or woman spot? Now that Amanda is in OK, you actually have even less women who want  to play. And Juniors? Ok, so Ben and who against who and who? Why not the best 16 (that qualify) vs. the best 16? Now I do think that if they want to go to qualifiers and qualify then they should, without a doubt, play.

To expand on the woman issue as to not get pegged sexist. Do women really want to play in this event? Has there been women begging to play? No. Not to this point. It is us the captains who are begging them to play. Even though they would rather have social gatherings where it isn't focused as much on competition. Now, I'm not trying to speak for women here, this is just the feeling I get from our local scene.

Again, if they or anyone of any age or sex wants to play, and there is a push on both sides of the state line then let's do it. Let's include everyone, I just don't see it personally.

Also, East side got rid of the women not West side. BOOM!

And Juniors? No one really likes kids, do they? (just kidding... kind of  ;D )

I was asked to do them but just have not heard back about it. So I would think they will be done. I'll talk with Jack about it again. I have some new stuff that could be a cool option. Though, I think he was going to do some Swope-like signs.

The biggest problem with the back it out portion at Rosedale is that ... it's at Rosedale. The park is very busy and it can get a little dicey. I guess if you rid of blind holes like 10-9 it would be ok.

The last year we did the back it out roll it over event, Otto, myself, and a few others were practicing it with little to no one at the park and while practicing 10-9, supposedly, I hit a young lady who was standing next to the basket with her boyfriend... who I found out later was Tom Mollencamp. We thought we heard someone yell but never saw anyone and went about our business. A couple years later I was at a club meeting and Tom was there and we were chatting and I brought up the event and how I thought I hit someon and that we thought we had heard someone yelling at us and he said. "That was you?? I was so pissed off at whoever threw that disc. We had to leave..." and blah blah blah. Suffice to say, I apologized and vowed to never throw that hole again.

Great story, I know.
