Smithville is a true multi course park in the KC area.  ::)

Smithville is NOT a current KCFDC course though....

WOW, that is freaking hilarious.  I haven't laughed like that in some time!

we play for fun.  The lost disc was an addition to losing 3 discs in the week out in Olathe, and that combined with the fact I should have been spending more time with the family made me less than enjoyable.....The missed putt on 8, UGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH, like Lucy pulling the ball from Charlie Brown....(See we are old, we make references many others don't get, that is part of the fun of playing with old age protected, division protected, gender protected people.  We leave others out! )

Old Settlers lost it....Has my name and stamps from Japan Open, would love to have it back. 

Lost 2 in the water at Olathe on #15 (Pond) red CCC Katana, and Star Lite Valk (Also Japan Open stamps)

If found, and returned, something cool can transpire for being cool and returning things....

........And Jack is correct. 1.5 hours minimum inbetween rounds please. We were rushed.  Ty.

I am not saying we need 1 1/2 hours between but at least enough drive time to get where we are eating and back to the courses.  In this event, 1:20 would have been perfect.  In cases where you know the drive time between places, say WW and Swope, you add 25 minutes, but that drive offers plenty to eat in between so it makes sense.

Playing Top and Bottom of Rosie for example, 1:10 would make sense, as you should be able to get somewhere within 5-10 minute drive, then an hour to eat.  I think you can see where we are going with this.  Having solely an hour in between rounds just isn't enough time to eat unless you go all fast food, and many of us don't want to do that.

As for trash cans....well that is a City thing, not an event Doug is on his own for that.

Most fun I've had at a tourney.
thats cause you played Am Masters.

It is because he played both rounds with me and got to watch me get a 2 on the pond shot instead of me watching him get it!   ;D

couple of spotters at Birdland (though I realize it is a volunteer thing), otherwise the event was pretty good.  The biggest thing that seems to be of issue lately isn't as much the courses, and the staff (though see above), but the notion that you only get one hour between rounds.  I get that they are close, but it still takes 10-20 minutes to drive to eat and get to the course, so I would ask that as you look at the future, keep in mind that rushing to eat doesn't ever sit well.  I think we had about 8 in the place we ate, and we all pretty much felt rushed (Fred P Otts) even though we were 5 minutes from the park.  I would think that having at least 20 minutes of driving time + hour to eat is better.  Now gving when you travel, normally it is 30 minutes travel time plus 60 to eat.  When playing at the same course, kind of on your own, but still would add to the event for certain for most of us.

Still though the event has grown nicely over the years, and it is from the work and efforts you drive Tom and thank you from all of us.

Even though I was whiny and b%tchy, lack of sleep, lots of family thoughts, I did have an ok time, and enjoyed my card, just sorry I was kind of b%tchy and "ho-ish" :-)

spray a little on a what happens....I suggest irreplaceable discs that you can'
t buy for less than $50 for starters....

Ben is WRONG....sorry bud...
For Advanced (Amateurs) you can be a 1000 rated player and plan in any division in Advanced (Masters, Grand Masters, etc.....)

The Rec/Int/Novice though do have "Limits"  You must be an 849 rated or lower to play Novice, you must be a 899 or lower player to play Recreational, and you must be a 934 or lower rated player to play Intermediate.

It gets dicier as Pro's playing as Ams (with MAC many pros played in an "AM" tourney as would be allowed by their ratings).  There are CUTS as well though to the AGE protected divisions that a "pro" can play in....See the bottom of the chart "Pros Playing Am" for more reference.  They CAN NOT play in MAJORS as Am's though regardless of their rating.

The cut off on the registration is 2 weeks, a ratings update may have altered his rating.... 2.2 A. #2

Hope this clears it up some for ya.

For those of you asking about the ratings....and not wanting to review the page 1 part of this thread here it is again....  I am sure that Scott will notify and correct the individual according to the rules of the game.

Jack Lowly             64

I was told it was a 63....still felt like a 72.....UGH! :-\ :'(

DZ? I'm going to clear the lake on 15 at PC and put it close for a duece. I hope Jack is on my card so I can make dropping duece jokes afterwards. Aka Soup Waffles.

Since we will be at "BIRDLAND" is this some type of new duck I haven't heard of?  I am intrigued by what sound this type of animal makes.... or is it French?  Based on the spelling I think it may be.....or is it a chicken for chicken and waffles?

It has to be farther than 261' as well, correct?

On Google Earth it's 290' to clear the water and 315' to the pin.

Odd....I was putting it at 315' in my mind as well....

Approximately where would the DZ be at on #15 at PC?
It is on the east bank, about 110' from the basket. There is a mowed in path to it from the walk trail. I will have it painted Thursday night and flagged for Saturday.

It has to be farther than 261' as well, correct?

Sorry all you heathens, but I'm going to say it, so cover your eyes, is anyone else praying that Steeler Doug and Jack Lowe will be on the same card both rounds.

No big deal, we both like the Steelers....I don't mind flightless birds most of the time either that skate on ice.....
