Oh, there will be more than 90 players.  Last year I was on a card of 6 first round, and 5 second round.

Why we are looking to do 2 courses at Swope to prevent this.  As for using the "extra holes" very doubtful.  Many of you weren't here back in 2001 when we first started talking about the disc golf course, and looking to use the land over there.  Wasn't only not offered, but with the shelter, they said nay altogether.  So needless to say we won't be seeing any additional holes of the extra variety with the exception of an entirely new "swope" layout for the weekend to accommodate close to 150 people at once.  So that we aren't on 6-somes.

no worries, provided the surgery goes well for Dylan, I hope to be out there at it again on Saturday this weekend as well.

^^^ what he said  >:(

Next time you wanna pick the 4 courses 2 in MO and 2 in KS, you run it ok?  SMP isn't a bad little track at all...they do more work than most to keep it pretty out there, so why dis on a relatively good course the has probably more traffic in it than all other parks combined?  You may be needling a new person that loves to play because they saw it there....

Big thanks to Drew Neitzel, Bob Hartness, and Tom Mollenkamp for coming out and making a difference at Cliff Drive.  There is plenty more to do, but hole #4 looks way better, still need to move a lot of logs from the downed trees, and #8 has a new window again for those "S" shots.

Don't answer that Scott.  If you want a spot, pre-register.  If you wait until the day of, you're lazy.

You shouldn't call another "lazy" bag tag #8.  ;)

I don't think your lazy if you never had the tag, it wasn't like he was hiding it from everyone......he didn't have it either....... :o

Primarily around hole #4, probably walk up from Chestnut by hole #5.  9ish-1ish.

Chainsaws, weedwackers, etc if you got it bring it.

Would like to clear out a little on #3 hillside as well.

Since there wasn't an LDO it is a little hairy in there and we want to clean it up for the Mighty Mo coming up.

All those in attendance to help will receive "good course karma".

My best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with the girl who saw Pete throw at Hays said he missed many putts while attempting to play.... I guess it's pretty serious.

I think they ordered a few that may be at Disc Golf World.

They aren't part of the membership, they are an extra $5 currently.

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" :-)
