waiting for the PDGA online site to kick has been over a week since I sent in the required.  Thanks I will call them on the runaround.  I will try to get it done today.



Chappy marshal he was in BG.

I fortunately have Marley this weekend.  so no camping or playing for me in the cold weather.  i will prefer to camp in Vichy I guess where i will have no chance of backing out......

6 people throwing does not speed things up.  You then have 6 people having to retrieve their discs, getting back to the spot that they agree to throw from, arguments as to whose shot is better.....6somes take longer than a standard 5 some in singles.  For that matter a 4 some in doubles takes longer than a 5 some in singles.  Think about it, you have to go to your disc, then go to your partners.  I know that you think that you are saving time, but it actually takes longer.

Take what is said hear with a grain of Salt, Ocean Salt if you wanna.  This is more badgering than anything else.  I tried to get this on the KCCC when I designed the course at Sprint back in 2003, so I personally am happy that it is on the menu.  The list of entrants only shows the support and enthusiasm that our sport has across multiple businesses.

We are all very appreciative of the fact that this is a KCCC sport, and with the World Champinoships here next year, my own hope is that we are able to leverage some of this enthusiasm towards the goal of bettering the event next year!!!

I only wish that T-Mobile was an entrant in the KCCC, I tried to get us in, but was not successful, so I will be there to help out the weary people that will be helping supporting the efforts.  If there is anyone that should be whining, it is Rick and John, this many people is like a Wide Open going through Swope in 2 days, with nothing but "newbies" and rookies, like Brian, and Timko, I mean they don't know how to play the sport.......

Kyle thanks again, we are very excited to be helping in this first year of disc golf being offered, and look forward to many more years of helping keep the KCCC a fun and challenging event for people of all types of background!!



And for those of you that refuse to click and look down a few posts......

From I-70 East or West get on I-435 North. Get off at Leavenworth Road headed West. Take a right and head North again at the first stoplight, 110th street. Go about two mile North and turn right on Hollingsworth Road. Ted's Dread as about a half a mile East after going up and down a couple hills on the South side of the road, your right. All distances are educated guesses.

Thanks K-Mont!!


Try SEARCHING first instead of crying out!

U knew that was coming didntcha?

Are you going to the Little league scorekeeping event to feel big?

Man I couldn't resist.

CD I can teach ya how to keep score.

It is pay-to-play, and playing it before hand generally requires letting Ted know that you wanna.  A little difficult at times, but with the event this weekend, I would expect that it should be relatively easy to go out and look around, and chances are he is working on it.

Cliff Drive / Tee Pads

Give me a call. We need to schedule when you want to build your tee pads i
have purchase order #'s for rock and concrete.

Lou Cummings
Northland Region

So we need to build boxes for the pads and get them level.  When is a good time for people to help, Sat/Sun, M-F, what can you do to help build this?  Once the pads are in I will get the signs in almost as fast.  They are already here, we need to develop a template for them, but should be good.

Im john, but only to a certain few, and I am not John Theiss, but I can tell you that I made an error in the date, and yes this event will run up against the WYE event.  I called and apologized to John about the mixup, I was only looking at the PDGA event log, and since mothers day was the next day......welll......DANGIT, I messed up.  Here is the Breakdown:
Must have 30 days from PDGA to get it approved......thus the shortest time, and still within the timeframe that I like (typically last weekend in April or so)

So we have the following:
4/26-Emporia, and SSR (Swope)

5/3-KCCC which we need help from people, please call Rick or John @ DGWN

5/10-WYE, and Mighty Mo now

5/17-KC Disc Golf Day, Tulsa (Where I will be marshal at)

5/24-Des Moines Challenge (Mom's B-day she lives in Des Moines)

5/31-Minnesota Majestic (Travel plans......)

6/6-Something called a Wide Open

And then I need to worry about the Sun Burn Open again at Swope and BV, this year BV will be Short and Swope will be a mix (does that make any sense?)

Solstice Doubles

Big O

Shawnee Mission wants an event

Lions Den

Cliff Drive Doubles needs to be back this year

City of Fountains


All before Sept 1.........

Time is an erosion, and we need to work on the Worlds.  Again I do apologize for this, as I wanted to play with Marley in the WYE, or at least watch her and her cousins play, but timing wise this was about the only weekend that I could muster and still get it done before the Wide Open.

Now if we could get a few more people to step up and help run events aroud here (Certified Officials from the PDGA) we might be better served to orchestrate some more events. 

One of the goals this year is to have more pDGA events locally so that we are able to have people from the area qualify, and have those that want to play in the Worlds get some time on the courses that will be in use.

I felt like crap after I realized the date error, but I had already sent out money, and posted the information when I realized the error.

My sincere apologies to John Theiss.

Im not rick, but.....13 long left is a bad idea with that many people playing that are not familiar with the sport.  Trying to tackle that many people and then the time looking for errant shots would be astronomical.

I think that the White pin on 14 is the one that is closest to 15's pad.  Again it would be hard pressed to have OB markings in an area that people may not understand the intricicies of the game.  At 5800 you still have plenty to throw at Chris! :o

WYE is jr only, and I messed up, was looking only at the PDGA calendar.  I do apologize.  I actually wanted to play the WYE with Marley so I am slightly mad at myself even more so.
