Tournaments / Re: 2015 Ice Bowl

The only big changes that many may wonder about.

Flex START should be from 9-1, ideally we want all cards turned in by no later than 4.

Lunch provided is only at the Chili Sunday the 25th.

You can play in as many locations as you would like, we only ask that you donate an additional $10 for scoring purposes (all goes to charity).

If you play a Satellite Event, and you want another type of disc, PLEASE take the disc that you want initially, DON'T USE IT, and you can exchange it at the 25th event at Rosedale.

Mulligans are not only allowed, but encouraged and should be bought by the dozen.

If you use a Mulligan you must USE the mulligan shot, or.......take a Mulligan and try again.....this is why you should buy a dozen.

Mulligans are only allowed for the first round.

Your score from any course you play will be your score for the first 18 and you will be playing the final 9 based on that you play with someone that shot 54 at Blue Springs, Lees Summit, P-Hill, Shawnee Mission Park, hey how is that fair you ask.......well, we have allowed over the past few years people to play Down Under and use that it really any different?

we have asked that the courses be set in optimal "Ice Bowl" setting (READ-as short as they can, if a temp pad is needed, so be it!  :-) )

We need help, yes, we do.  PM me if you can help, or show up at the Satellite and offer, the biggest day of help is still on the 25th.

Brock did a lot of "help" with the down under, construction is a loose term, but he did workdays etc....  down there over the years for certain.  It was clearly his favorite course and he showed it as much love as a player can.

Many have given over the years to the Down Under, it has gone from I think 24 holes to the current 18, re-visioned by many and worked by thousands.  It takes a community to get it to be where it is, and there are more plans in place to help further its existence!

Working on an "official" sign up, but this is the link to the basic information to help answer many questions.

"lunch provided" will be based on the Rosedale event on the 25th only, and of course we need more and more Chili, so bring it, and win it!  Chili contest is on again!

If I don't have your e-mail please PM me for it so I can send you information.  This is for those that have volunteered to date.  Hope to have it all available for people tomorrow, and we can start to sign up then as well.

Just getting caught up on work things this morning.  Been out of the office since the 23rd.  As most of you know about me, when I am away from work, I typically try to stay "offline"

More to follow, but we are looking nice to start off the Ice Bowl this weekend!

DAMN!  Spot on Joe.  Good job on putting it out here!

absolutely hate the notion of the Thu/Fri/Sat deal, thanks.

My thought process really is trying to decide if I want to take time off to pay a city and join for an event that only gives me 3 rounds that they basically are requiring me to be at for 4 days.

I am waning on attending as are many others.

This isn't the model to replicate in my mind.

As a person that has ran a Wide Open 5x, I may not have decision making powers but I will give and list my opine regardless!   ;D

3 days
Fri-Shotgun -2 rounds 1 course-WW
Sat-Swope Tee Times
Sun-Swope Tee Times/Final 9 top 7

3 days
Fri-Swope Gold Tee Times
Sat-Rosey/WW-flip afternoon round
Sunday-Irwin M Fletcher-Cliff/Little Blue, KCFDC Championship Blue? (figure 2 pools)

2 Days 3 rounds
Sat-Sunday courses for Am's

My thoughts....

If you go to a 2 day event, I would say WW x2 for pros on Sat, and Swope Sun, Am's go Swope/Rosey Sat, Cliff/WW Sun, and B-Tier would have to be like Cliff/BV (short) Sat and Rosey Sun, but that is a lot of staff.

blah blah blah blah blah....Ohhhh!  SNAP!
Also, I am nominating myself for East Side captain.  As a graduate of THE University of Missouri, I have the bona fides to lead the East side.

Let the games begin.  We need a Mocking Jay

well.......the rousing response makes it appear we need a leader, and you want those reins, grab them and organize!

I am confirming the dates for the events, here is what I am trying to get confirmed.  As of right now I have SMP, Kearney, P-Hill (pending park approval), Kearney, and Olathe confirmed.  Brian Palmer is confirming the LS date.

Saturday January 10:
Blue Springs-Jose/Bill Shinoski-Jose Confirmed-Amy
Olathe-Andy Lewis/Harold-Andy confirmed, and so did Harold!

Sunday January 11:
Kearney-Mike Lockwood-Lockwood confirmed-Mantis
P-Hill-Aaron/Nate Zier-Confirmed by Aaron/Nate

Saturday January 17:
SMP-Brad Berve-Soup-Kruger
Liberty:Kujo-Confirmed by Kujo! and Ted Keith!

Sunday January 18:

Lees Summit-Brian Palmer/Frank M/Jason McEwen-Brian is confirming with the Mrs./Frank says "will Do"

We will allow you to play and Ice Bowl rules apply, you will be able to get Mulligans, that way you can take your score from your "local course" and apply it for the final 9 round in the afternoon.  Where we may have 8-somes as such that will play for the vaunted disc for winning your card as well.  More information to follow, but we are about 1/2 way there with confirmations and I wanted to thank and let people know.

Can one really improve upon basket design?

Yes, yes they can.  Actually I-Q-Ball has a design that he is working on that I think will be better.  Personally the Titan is the best basket that I have seen in many respects to date.

There needs to be an ability to improve the design for certain.  Just as disc designs evolve, so have the baskets.  Think about those coneheads, tone poles, single chain baskets of the 70's and where we are today.

There are many efforts to improve the quality of our sport, including disc technology as well as basket technology, pad, shoes, clothing, bags...etc......
