Is KC going to have an Ice Bowl in 2012?  Haven't seen anything yet.

Champion plastic, Juliana Korver stamp , Orange and Yellow tie dye. left at PHill about 2 years ago.  Worth a shot. Maybe some loser who walked off with it then, lost it too.

In order to change peoples perspective on three of our parks. I propose a name change.
Swope Park will be named Martin Luther King Park.
Kessler/Cliff Drive Park will be named Martin Luther King Drive Park
Blue Valley Park will be called Martin Luther King Valley Park

According to Chris Rock ""You know what's sad? Martin Luther King stood for non violence. And I don't care where you are in America, if you're on Martin Luther King Boulevard, there's some violence going down."

Its blind draw.
That means you won't know who your partner is till its drawn.

You could make sure they are on the same card though.

Jack, thanks for what you do.  I don't want you to think that just because I don't like how you do everything in a tournament, that I don't appreciate what it takes to run a tournament.  It's tough being in charge.  And there will always be complainers, but I'm also of the mindset that if you don't say something then those that put on events won't know how you feel.  These are just my thoughts and what I felt about the 2011 KCWO.  Take them for what they are worth. 

As far as 3 discs and 2 shirts go, I would say that it is a pretty good deal.  But right now, I'm not looking for a good deal.  I have lots of discs and lots of t-shirts.  I would prefer better quality and better selection.  If I only got 1 great disc (that I picked out) and 1 good shirt that I wore often for $40, then I would be happy. 

For the PDGA membership, it was a factor in my decision.  I know not everyone is in the same situation as I am.  I am very involved in my kids sports (coaching, etc.) and I don't have time to play in every tournament.  The KCWO actually falls on a weekend that I don't have any other commitments and it's the largest KC tournament so I definitely want to play in it.  I wasn't forced to play in the KCWO, but if I wanted to play in it I was forced to have a PDGA membership.  I personally know others that were planning on playing in the tournament until they found it was going to cost them $100 to play.  To say that it wasn't a factor, is false. 

If the trophy only issue wasn't why Ams didn't participate, then why were the numbers down in 2011?

Jack kept saying wait until you get your player's pack and you will see. "player's packs will be stocked with items that will make everyone glad that they came to the event."  Well I got it, and I frankly was underwhelmed.  I'm not sorry I played this year, but next if next year's event is the same way, then I likely won't.  It's about value for my money.  Looking forward (before the tournament) it seemed reasonable, after getting my hands on the player's pack, it didn't. 

I like some of Rick's ideas, that's a good compromise.   

To answer your questions Timko, why should Ams have to play for prizes?  Why can't they just play for a title?  You should offer prizes to Ams so that more players will come play in the tournament.  You can't argue that the number of participants was down in 2011 because it was a trophy only event.

Explain to me why trophy only is the only way to go.  I think it sucks.  Because it's easier to run?  Maybe the pros should be play for trophys only.

I know alot of ams didn't play in the KCWO because it was trophy only for the ams.   I was very disappointed in how many people showed up for the tournament on the am side.  More AMs showed up for the KCWO in 2010 as B tier vs. the 2011 A tier.  Personally, I liked the tournament better in 2010 than this year. 

If "the notion of Trophy only is fast approaching the standard on the am side", then I probably won't play many events.  And I don't think I'm alone.  These types of tournaments are going to draw fewer ams. The larger player's pack was okay, but I don't think it was enough to offset the difference especially since it was A tier had to shell out another $50 for the PDGA membership.  And looking back now, I don't think it was worth it.  Please eliminate the trophy only for KCWO 2012. 

Here's what I liked about the 29th KCWO vs. the 28th.  I liked that the Sunday was only one round so I could go watch the pros play.  I liked the courses chosen, but I would have liked to play Swope Gold.  For 30th KCWO, I would like to see Water works, Swope Gold, and Rosie.  I liked the "heavy-weight dri-fit" shirt from 2010.  It was better than the shirts I got in 2011 player's pack.  I also liked the player's party at Rosie in 2010 and would like to see something similar return, possibly on Friday night.

I have never enjoyed #16 at p-hill.  Short dog leg right that I never get a legitimate birdie chance at.  Very aggravating.

I agree, it is aggrevating.  But I have started throwing a roller there.  I've seen a fair number of biridies there, it just takes a great shot.

I hate hole #7 at PHill.  No obstacles but wind and the OB on the right.  Boring shot and frustrating.  As a lefty, I don't like #2 at Cliff Drive, but I can appreciate it. 


now that's more like it.  I was afraid the hot weather was scaring people off.

I have a Star Monarch that I got as a CFR from 2009 Worlds in KC.

That was a lot of fun.  The course was in great shape and the weather actually broke and about perfect at the end of the round.  I wish we could have capitalized with a few more putts.

I took a 6 foot long pole and reaped it over the grass over quite a large space, including fairly shorter distances.   I did find a disc from a guy from Tulsa who played in the open division, but it will take a while to get back to him as it didn't have a number, just his PDGA #. 

Sorry Dan, I'm taking the family canoeing this weekend. Eric
