Right John, and I get that, I just wish we didn't "cannibalize" ourselves, and I wish we had more notice on it.

Why do we schedule events locally on top of each other?  This is silly.  The cause may be good, but can't we find a weekend where an event that already moved to accommodate the Club Championship doesn't have to fight with another?

I call severely bad timing on this. 4 weeks out, no flyer and NOW announcing?

right, great idea!

many reasons can come to mind.  As he hasn't won a World title, that may be on his list.  He doesn't have the mental capacity to play at the pro level could be another thought.

As for me a life long AM with a BLIP in the pro side, my decision is easier (as a 911 rated player MUCH easier), I want to be able to pick and choose events I want to play.  Next year I am VERY excited about going back to Kalamazoo, albeit as a player this time to play.  Much more excited about that than the Pittsburgh worlds for the pro side.  Same with worlds last year, I would rather have played in Emporia than Lemon Lake for the worlds.  Now in 2011, Santa Cruz as the "pro" worlds was obviously a better choice in my mind over New York.

As an Am I typically have better choice selections on where I can play and I love options.  As a Pro, I limit my own personal choices.

You can ALWAYS play open, ALWAYS, there is never a time when you can't sign up for open.  You can't though sign up as an AM unless you have that status.

That's my take, plus I love hearing people tell me I am silly for not playing pro.....the reason, as many could attest to last night, I just don't want to be that serious all the time on the course.  As an AM I also get that luxury more so than on the pro side.....

Tournaments / Re: KC Wide Open 2015 NOT to be a NT???
« on: September 23, 2014, 11:54:14 AM »
Perry is a stand up guy for certain! 

Thanks Perry, the Wide Open hasn't always been an NT over the years as well though, and this is a chance for someone to win the title as Wide Open Champion that may not have to battle some tougher names.....however, just because it is an "A" Tier (or possibly, depends on who is the TD, they will decide) doesn't mean that we have a sub standard event.  We can still have everything as we have grown accustomed to in order to minimize the impact of the title.

Just as Kansas City has hosted 3 world championships, we are a great place to play disc golf, we are blessed by some of the best courses on shared parklands, and have wonderful relationships with our parks partners.  I am sure that whomever is the TD can start to plan and make this venue just as exciting as any other Wide Open.

I for one though and personally excited to see concerns this early.  Usually it is just me chiming in on the BoD as to what is being done for next year's Wide Open.  I have always felt as though we are missing opportunities to market the Wide Open earlier....so the important thing could be to have an AWESOME logo and then start to develop a team....of course we need a TD first......

This was the model that was adopted and was to be the norm moving forward.  The fact that the Wide Open remained an "NT" was only due to many other factors for the area in terms of dates, TD's and event history within the region.

We were to really only be an NT about every 3-4 years initially possibly at the time sharing with Des Moines Challenge (a GREAT EVENT, a MUST play) the Minnesota Majestic (At the time no issues with in-fighting between clubs and businesses), possibly St. Louis (wonderful courses, but tournament management concerns), and then Tulsa as well in the mix for our area.

That way everyone got to have their "NT" status.

It didn't work out as they envisioned, and in the time since the GBO has proved itself worthy with their continued community support, development of DD as a major player in the sport, and determination to showcase how driving sponsorship in a small market town can impact our sport.

It doesn't mean that the Wide Open is only an "A" Tier per se, as the event has only been an "NT" for the Pro Men and Women, as all other divisions were playing in an "A" Tier.  It actually does give us a chance to direct an event that will still be of high quality and now the start to look at dates.  I would guess that the date of the 19th-21st of June will be the Wide Open dates, wedging it in between the coastal dates of the NT's also still allows KC to be a place to stop.

The history of the Kansas City Wide Open carries itself as a premier event in Disc Golf, this is only a blip on the big scale of what we do for the country and the world in terms of the competition.

Now though is the time to start to identify who will be helping, who will be able to support and draw sponsors, who has the artwork we need (selling WO discs for Christmas would be pretty cool.....) and working with the parks and recreation at getting the event and venues ready.

It takes much planning to make the event work, and we always need more people than we have, so let us all ask ourselves,

"How can I help make people upset that the Wide Open wasn't an NT this year?"

Cliff Drive / Re: Final leaguefor the Northeast Results
« on: September 23, 2014, 08:25:53 AM »
On what can be described as simply a B-E-A-utiful night out we finished up the season of Monday night league play at Cliff Drive.  We had a great time with the 4-some playing tonight, and though many of you weren't there, don't worry we weren't thinking of ya!

Unfortunately there was no Ace hit, as hard as we tried to make it happen, we just couldn't get the biscuit in the basket.  That means that over the winter you will have a wonderful chance to think about all those missed opportunities on hitting the chains at Cliff or Blue Valley to the tune of $565.

Results, yeah we all won, because we got out there and played, so everyone was a winner on the night!

Jack-55
Beckett-56
Danny R-58
Bill S-59

With no ace hit Ace fund is at $565 next league will be in 2015-we are taking applications for those interested in running league next year.  Also the idea of that whole PDGA LEAGUE thing is probably a good one if you are interested please let your BoD know.

Utilizing some of the other course makes for more interesting terrain and gives a chance to use the park and the water as well which is alwasy something that I have enjoyed doing.  I pitched it to Dick this way as well to see if we could get it in the mix.

To be fair Doug, over the years there are probably about 200 holes out there that we have played that aren't there, and so we want to try to use the land and the Exec Course to create a fun challenge that won't make people feel like they were "blue Valleyed".  The club championship has many play that aren't tourney players, and this is a chance to show off all of the courses there not just the one that people may be scared of....

I can walk with you about the layout sometime this week, let me know when.

Cliff Drive / Final leaguefor the Northeast Results
« on: September 22, 2014, 09:20:12 AM »
Well after the HUGE turnout for league last Monday on Doubles BagTag night, tonight we will decide to play.......whatever the group that shows up to play decides.  We want to be throwing by 5:35, last time on a very similar configuration we were done by 7:08   Please be signed up by 5:25.

I wanted to do a BYOP doubles alternate shot format, but hey I am not sure how many people will do that.  So we will probably play in the "shorter" configuration of the course to have an 18 hole course set up ala "ace friendly" to see if anyone wants to grab a piece of the $561 ace fund out here.  Probably play in this configurations tonight:
1-to original short basket
2-from the road to #1 (ala LDO)
3-new hole in woods
4-other new hole in the woods
5-hole #2
6-Hole #3
7-Hole #4
8-Hole #5
9-Hole #6
10-Hole #7
11-Hole #8 (Hangar)
12-Hole #9
13-from the road by #18 pin to Blue Practice Basket

14-Hole #11 short Red practice basket
15-Hole #12
16-Hole #16
17-Hole #17
18-Hole #10

Please note that this allows us to flow quite nicely from #9 pin to the road, and gives less total walking by making #10 as the "last hole".  Since it is in the "long position" anyway, it will be a tough shot to begin with.
