Leagues / Re: 2016 Regular league Season
« on: January 04, 2016, 03:22:42 pm »
I didn't tie people's names to the leagues for now, figured Eric would get on that.  I really just wanted to get people thinking about it now and give an overview of what I have seen! ;D

Basically yes to the Cliff Drive question, once a month for it and Blue Valley.  If it swells and we need to look at going to every week again I will adjust, but historically my belief is that by making it a destination spot for league once a month it should increase attendance to mirror having it monthly.  Also with Monday's and Holidays impacting it, those Monday's wont be affected.

And in all honesty I don't have the time to give every week, and to date haven't seen a lot of people willing to step up and alternate it.  Those that were, have kids and make it hard.  This way should enable the league to return, keep people engaged, and give options on Mondays for all to enjoy is my own personal hope.  As well as get Blue Valley back in the mix since it affected leagues out there last year as well by no Monday night NE League night.

Right now there are a few glitches with the site for registration.

We are aware of them, and working to fix them.  Please be mindful of the ratings level to sign up.  You don't want to sign up and then not be eligible.

As for the performance flight and the NT, this much is more than certain.....

Everyone will be playing the same courses:

Swope Gold configuration

Blue Valley-TBD configuration or another KCMO Park if parks approve (really though 90% positive probably moving to BV just easier on everyone involved with the 8 week move up on the event this year....)

Rounds will be based on Tee Times for the first 2 days (Friday and Saurday) will be only 1 round a day.  Sunday is still being discussed and we will have EXACT information before the end of the week.

Performance flight is giving you a rating on the course based off your rating (think like handicaps here) so even though you shot a 99 your adjusted score may only be a 79.  You need to have a PDGA rating, and once registered we put it together you will know what you are looking at for "par for you" on the course.  Based off your PDGA rating.

I hope that helps!

Blue Valley / 2016 League Plan
« on: January 04, 2016, 09:59:54 am »
Planning on returning the 2016 Northeast League in a different format (well slightly)

Will move this to the 1st Monday of the month at Blue Valley and then the 3rd Monday of the month at Cliff Drive.  This year not a big deal but we may move June's month to align with the Wide Open closest date to the course that may be in use that year.

I believe the Ace Fund is a little over $500 and will continue to be used at both parks.  With Doug and Jim working continually here at Blue Valley we will see shorter courses to align with the possible aces at both now.

Look for more information as we get closer, but right now April 4th looks to be the return to disc golf at Blue Valley for leagues.

Leagues / 2016 Regular league Season
« on: January 04, 2016, 09:49:16 am »
Typically we have leagues run from April-September here in KC.

I am going to put in historically what we have been looking at for leagues in the KC area.  As we start the new year, please be mindful that there are current leagues running around in town during the "off season"  they include:

Monday-Glow Olathe PC

Wednesday-Glow Harmon Park

Thursday-Glow Water Works

Saturday-Down Under @ 12:30

There are a few other "leagues for fun" you can read about or find on courses out there as well.

Most of those leagues start at 6, you can find more information in each of the appropriate parks thread. 

The regular league season constitutes typically paying $5 for the league and an additional $1 for the ace fund.  Those individuals that are current KCFDC members do receive a $1 discount to play.

Mondays--

Olathe's Prairie Center and Lake Olathe's courses (aka Birdland) they alternate months check site to see information.

Rosedale-New Players League Night (Free to play)

Rosedale-Ladies Night Out (Free to play)

Cliff Drive and Blue Valley (2016 will alternate between the 2 courses with the 1st Monday being at Blue Valley and the 3rd Monday at Cliff in the last few years this has been a PDGA League, and will be again this year) Northeast League Night

Tuesdays--

Swope Park

Shawnee Mission Park (Mike has held PDGA Leagues here, I expect he will again at some point this year)

Old Pike (NON-KCFDC league, but still fun place to play)

Wednesdays--

Rosedale

Liberty Bad Rock Creek

Blue Springs?????--Sorta fell apart last year, looking for help to support it again this year

Thursdays--

Water Works--You know it, be there!

Pleasant Hill-Beginners League-Low entry or none

Fridays--

WyCo--Looking for help running it this year again, Beckett has stated he will do quite a bit, but looking for those that will help when he can't

Legacy Park--Mixed formats


If I missed anything or anyone (Rob??? uncertain your plans this year with Wandering) please put it in here.  I believe that Eric Kolkmeier will be the actual director of leagues so you if you prefer to PM him about your plans that is ok as well.

Looking forward to another great year of disc golf in Kansas City!

Registration is now OPEN for the 34th Kansas City Wide Open. This is a PDGA NT event. The registration is Tiered based on your rating. So currently the NT side which features the MPO and FPO dvisions is open to the top rated players. Each Monday it will open up to more ratings based on the table set by the PDGA. You can find that link here:
 http://www.discgolfunited.com/…/tournament-da…/tourn_id/3611

The A-Tier portion of the event, which features the Age-Based Pro Men and Women is open to anyone that qualifies for those divisions. You can sign up here: http://www.discgolfunited.com/…/tournament-da…/tourn_id/3612

The Performance Flight, which is our new format for this year's Kansas City Wide Open, registration is also open. Like the NT it is tiered registration. Although, the lower rated players (0-900) are allowed to register first. The higher rated players will get their opportunity over the next few weeks. That registration can be found here: http://www.discgolfunited.com/…/tournament-da…/tourn_id/3613

All divisions are limited so when your opportunity to register opens up, we suggest you get signed up at that time.

Good Luck and we can't wait to see you in May!

So now once again back to the awesomeness of the event.

Jack/Dick, can you create a one person division for me, that way I can finally win something and you can give me a trophy. Thanks, let
me know when I can sign up for that.  :)

We call that the TD award......all your buddy!  All yours!   ;D

I guess that this falls on me as it always has been my own assumption that all divisions are offered (At least when I run events I have NEVER NOT OFFERED a division), so I apologize for my assumption on that part.  I just have never had an event in the over 100 I have ran not offer a division.....  I don't pay attention to how others do their registration, and since I am not an age protected female, it never crossed my mind. ....solely based on the knowledge that to me, we offer every division....so again entirely on me!

Sorry!
How does someone sign up for a division that is not offered in the registration process?
I think that what Jack's implied is that all of the the divisions will be offered in the registration process. 
 
. . . right?

This is correct!  (at least I thought it would be!!)

It is awesome...from my perspective. I'm helping others ask the right questions.

Yep I think that Rob caught the disconnect that I was having.  Thanks Rob.--And of course thanks to Mr. Parker for seeing the question the right way as well with his response!

Now you got me thinking......

So last year there weren't any FPM, a lot that had to do with the Women's event in Colorado the same weekend (won't be the case this year since we are 8 weeks earlier).

2015-0-(see above)
2014-3 of them
2013-4 of them
2012-4 of them
2011-0-(14 in FPO of all ages)
2010-0-(only 3 in FPO--Japan Open the weekend before, and this was a B-Tier, as the 2009 Worlds Hangover was in place, Rick kept it alive though)


So there is a possibility of there not being a FPM, again it will be based on #'s, but as you can tell from the #'s this decade, it has missed 50% of the time to having the required #'s.  Also as you can see it BARELY makes it to the minimum required 3.

Thanks for making me look that up as I started to think about it all.  Many times the "age protected" players choose to play FPO instead so they are all together.  If that is the case, then FPM may not go out in the field.

The best remedy for that is to get signed up when you can (eligible timelines) and try to make sure you have at least 2 other ladies over 40 this year that want to play in that division.

Edit--I do love to look up historical information on the event.  I have only been involved for about 16 years now in it, there is always something to learn about this great event!

Mistake?  It boils down to #'s.  If there are 3 FPM that sign up and want to play in the division, then it is there.  If there aren't 3 then there won't be.  I am not opening divisions for 1-2 people.  It isn't required and as such if there are only 1-2 in FPM, 1-2 in FPS, then the choices will be to go with FPO for those that choose.

As stated, if there are 3 then I will open the divisions, pretty easy to understand, and it isn't a mistake if I decide not to have it based on #'s.  It is the reality that there aren't people to support it.

Hope that makes sense.

As usual, there will also be a concurrent A-Tier going on with all the aged-based Pro divisions and field limit of 72 players.
 
 
FPM, pretty please.

?????

Believe that was answered.....

......

.......

So there ya go!  I guess the only thing that would prevent it is if there weren't 3 to form a division.  Historically though there has always been some Female Pro Masters in the Wide Open field.  Just have to beat the rush on registration.

Blue Valley / Re: Earn your Green Frees.
« on: December 27, 2015, 10:27:28 am »
Most people will never know how much work Jim has put into the courses.  Jim has been standing beside the role of Blue Valley YEARS before I invited him to a meeting back in 2001 to talk about putting a course in there.  He came equipped with a map already at that meeting, but sat back and listened to everyone.

We are a fortunate community to have Jim and people like Doug that make our city great.  There are many others, but when Doug calls him out and many of you are aware of what Doug does/has done, remember Jim has been out there over the past decade making it better for us all.

Kudos to you Doug and of course Jim will never read this, but Thanks to you r Kreeger as well!
