As a famous Kansas City disc golfer recently said "I'm lazy and didn't want to read a essay", so can you just sum it up for us. What's in the player pack.  ;D ;D
Good stuff-in the players pack that is......disc golf stuff on top of that.... ;D

Sum it up... have you read my posts? ???

;D. Well for one thing Jack..Last year I Volunteered for working one day., But ended up working every single day....And when I was looking at playing this year, I notice it was only 80 bucks to register.
I believe that I should have a right to know what the players pack is.

I didn't mean to probably come off as harsh as it sounded, this internot doesn't always promote the best tone inflections.

That being said, the gist of what I was saying or attempting to would be that it is still probably being decided.  At times you don't know what all you are getting as a TD until a few weeks out from sponsors, last minute agreements, etc....  The history of the Wide Open is one that has almost always been a very generous players pack.  To a point where the players pack gets bashed because the AM PAYOUT wasn't as strong as people would have liked because they got more in value on the players pack than they paid.  This has happened and hence my own undertones of OMG the players pack question, seriously?  History has jaded me in this respect and I fully admit it.

We need help, we always need more help.  That is typical my response, when people ask how, I say go do and let us know what you can give to help make it better.

So since again things are just moving along now on the planning part suffice it to say it will be a cool players pack for certain that will as the last few years have indicated, exceed the value I took a little quip on it.

I am sorry if it cam across harsh, it wasn't my intent to single it out, but ultimately I am a big bully and as such I tend to tower and throw all this abusive speak on the internet that some take as personal, when in fact it is just attempting to create dialogue about other endeavors to make this event even better.

I personally thank you as well for helping out last year.  I barely remember the event but I am all to cognizant of the efforts of many to give a little time and how impactful it is even if someone can only help for an hour, hell 30 minutes, trust me it helps. For that to take one day to give, and spend 3 AWESOMENESS is yours, and please accept my apology as it wasn't directed towards you as such, but rather trying to get our local scene to a better realization of just how much energy is needed to make this event.  It is a tough hill to climb when dealing with an all volunteer group to make it happen.

Apologies to those that it offended, now get volunteering!   ;D

What does the Am. Players pack consist of ?

Seriously.......?  Can we get the courses done and help in the event before we worry about "what do I get?"  Here is the deal, GBO is all ran by a DG company where you get their stuff.

The Wide Open is ran by volunteers that scrape to get you what we can on the time we have.

Let's help why not ask, "Hey how can I help in getting the players pack more awesome?" instead.....

I'm not a big Missouri fan, so I don't care.  The big Viii should return to the fold, then only 1 team would have been left out this year....

Wait you guys read?  Man I didn't know that.  Can you read a scorecard though with numbers?  Kinda like KU?  I mean they read the scoreboard at Sprint last weekend right?

Ultimately to get round ratings and points, and get courses all over moving for folks was the plan during normal league.  It is quite simple at this point, you pay an extra $3 on top of league and I'll cover the rest.

Sorry I know that there has been a lot of confusing information on all this, but this way we can also start to look at local ratings even stronger at our leagues which I think will help all levels of players.

Always fun time in the "Loo".

Looks like the Open is the week before the Wide open.

Updated today.

Saw a lot of Iowa Staters this weekend out on the courses!  Looking forward to Des Moines and yes Tasty Tacos was also discussed.  I will be sponsoring some holes again this year.  Support our closest club with great courses if you can.

Ok then I think that this is going to be the plan moving forward.

The PDGA ADD ON will be $3, $1 to the PDGA fees, and $2 to the payout.  I will pay only the top 25%, with the winner getting 50%, the remaining will be split amongst the folks in a simple format, so if there were 10 people, 3 would be paid, winner gets $10, 2nd place gets $6, 3rd place gets $3, basically a 50% model after the winner is paid.  In that case the additional $1 will go the Tree Fund.

I will work on getting a list of dates and locations this week.

Basket #13 was stolen, I have moved one of the practice baskets in its place.

If you let us know in here to fix these things it would be great.

I am also going to be heading out there tomorrow morning to clean up hole #1 off the pad (gulley) and move some more pins.  If interested in helping, show up.  If not, come play it if you aren't playing in the event!

The top OPEN finishers.

Scores based, not division based as long as the format (configuration) is the same.  It goes by score.

They are aware of the programming possibilities with JoCo for certain.  We (KCFDC) have a long historical effort of working on development and plans for the courses there as well as success in their parks.  I know initially I believe myself and Jake were at the initial planning meetings for the 2020 plan-2002- (Heritage Park disc golf development to be included on the Master Plan-The course Scott is working on) and the current scenario of the disc golf course on SMP makes them very aware of the continued year round support the course receives.  They are aware of the growth we bring, and yesterday there was a clear indication of the acknowledgement that disc was high on the radar.  Many noticed as myself and Dirk were out throwing my discs on the golf course for certain.

Bottom line be positive in your communication with the goals.  Realization that the land available may not be enough to have a "championship length", but that is ok.  A well designed course that encourages participation at all levels is just as needed as the continuation of these "long" courses that deter the newer player from enjoying.

Not everyone wants to play on holes that average 350'-500'.  So the balance act of the land truly available for the use (if approved) plays a much more pivotal role in the size of the course, and ultimate the needs of the community.  I would venture to say that a smaller, challenging, well designed course can be just as advantageous in the neighborhood as a bomber course.
