like I said, I played one roud out at WyCo I think 2 years ago that was close, but when I got home, I did not hear on that day about trucks being blown over.....The Wind was NUTS.

I am NOT RUNNING THIS.  Do what you want, I just threw it out there, and I do NOT plan on playing in it, though my PDGA would support it, my local would not, hence why shoudl I play in something that is trying to drive new competition, when I can't eevn beat old competition.....see DUI results, and how many old guys beat me.....

You CAN'T make it so you only take certain courses in this format.....Blue Valley scores are going to be HIGHER than have to make every event, or you don't get prizes overall, now if you want to give plastic at each event, then you can play when you can.....

I think the above post puts it correctly.   And yeas Rick, I am on the 50 year plan......notive my rounds aer better than any ride at the Carnival or the what-ever-it-will-be-called Worlds of Fun.

I do speak for myself when posting in here typically, but I also have been playing around a lot of the local and traveling scene for the last few years, and though I share some of the frustrations, I am also of the mind set that you have to play well to win, and you can at times move toa division that will allow you to win that confidence, hence why I play open, and advanced at varying times.  Also the reason that I still sign up as an AM in the PDGA.....

Bottom line, if you want to have $10 tourney's every other w/e, I would love to see it, but it should be all plastic payout, and then no one with a rating in the PDGA or local scene of over 935, and it hits EVERY course, then crown an overall winner at the end of the 26 weeks:
Down Under
Water Works
Cliff Drive
Blue Valley
Shawnee Mission
Black Hoof
Lees Summit
Blue springs/Yates take your pick

There are 13 courses.....1 roud, each course, total lowest strokes wins something, like a trophy, the worst score should get a basket.....

With a calm evening, where 7 trucks were overturned on I-70, we had 8 brave souls show up to play in some of the windiest conditions that I have seen.  I can remember one night at WyCo close to this, but I did not hear about Semi's being blown over on the news that night.....winds gusting up to 50 mph, made for an interesting round.

Arturo-59 (8-4's)
Bobby-61 (5-4's, and a 6 on the Island)
Jack-69 (5-4's, 4-5's, and a 6 on the Island)
Pete-69 (3-4's, 6-5's)
Matt Hummel-70 (7-4's, 3-5's, and a 7 on 16...that Wind up there was FIERCE)
Chappy-74 (well.....4's, 5's, 6's, and an 8)
Matt Hays-78 (4's, 5's, 7, 8)
Dan Truax-84 (4's, 5's, 6, 8'ss....)

So all you fair weathered are all weak, we are all strong.

Come on out next Monday and see if you get to play in one of the most fun leagues in town

SO this is a new KCFDC league, and the City is still gonna do the Monday thing?

I think that it makes sense to host it on Friday, since it competes with WyCo on the other side of the city, kinda why I went to Mondays agains Olathe, its 40 minutes away from each other

You are beating up your partner instead of calling him the great player that he I need to look for another partner.

I have paid over $300 this year in tourney fees, and won nothing, received nothing, and don't care.  I have met some great people, and will continue to meet good people and play hopefully better as I throw money away.

Dick and I tied this year, I missed countless putts, but overall playing disc golf with friends frmo 9-4 equates to about $3/hr, and who knows who you'll meet.  You are also going to get better, and be in a position to help others play the game. 

If $25 is that important to you right now, then this is probably mot the best venue to spend it on, go ahead go on out and play in the park with your friends.  If you want to get better, you have to play with better people.  If you want to get something for your money, then play in the Disc Golf Day coming up in May, and get your friends to play as well, but overall most events are a pay to play, and the winners get the prizes, the loser, get condolences and the chance to meet great people that you may end up knowing the rest of your life, but hey, I understand, $25 may be too much to meet a lifetime friend....I'm still looking for the $10 friend...... ;D

Hope this fuels the flame,
