Tournaments / Re: 30th KCWO Think Tank
« on: September 15, 2011, 03:04:29 pm »
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

Found and Lost / Lost pro destroyer at Blue Valley

Lost a white pro destroyer on hole #13 at Blue Valley during doubles last Friday.  Off the fairway on the right side in the tall grass.  My guess was about 5-10 feet in, but couldn't find it.

I was wondering the same thing about the doubles at BV on friday.  Is it still on?  I saw something initially about it, but nothing lately. 

Found and Lost / Few items found at Swope

Found a pair of glasses on hole 3 of Swope.  I also found a Star Aviar.  No name or number.  Describe the disc and location.

He is an out of towner.  He was here for Worlds and the Wide Open

PDGA website said Tulsa which is how i got his number.  He didn't have his area code on the disc and when we called it the first time we used 816 and 913 area codes and clearly wasn't the right number.   When I used 918 with the number his voice mail said it was Taylor so I'm pretty sure it's the right number.  He might have lost it during one of those tournaments and somebody found it and then they lost it.  Who knows.

Is it Miles?

Nope, Taylor Sears.  Called and texted him.  No response yet.
