Prizes only.......unless they decide to do like last year, where you can receive 1/2 cash for the prize value, and relinquish your amateur status....Highbridge was the BOMB last year, why I am heading up there again this year for the Pro Worlds, cuz my game ain't the was also a long ways away for most, and followed a holiday weekend last year.  St. Louis is closer, and easier to get to, so it should have plenty of people this year.  Is a division based ratings event only.....

As we get information about the next meeting, please post here.  I think that they expected more people at the last meeting.  I was just doing more introduction than anything else.  We can garner support I know that I have heard requests for this area since I moved here in 1998, soo.......keep us posted as things move forward.

Nick Arbeitman had #1, with a sore shoulder, did not play.......gave it back to Mike D, who had it for the Brock Barrett Benefit.......Dave Z tried to hustle it home, but alas Jay Rivard the wiley Down Under veteran walked away with it, as Dave Z who was up by 2 strokes with 4 holes to go blew it like a candle in the wind.......then Mike D took #49 to league in Olathe, where he beat Crappy Fred who had #2, brought to league where the mysterious #4 who was in the possession of one Jamie Barry lost at Cliff ME!!!   well then Kevin Corbett hits the 6 holes with birdies to take #2, Mike D shot solidly, but not enough to hold Corbett back and took #4....which left me with #51 from Corbett.......then an off card challenge to Tom Mollenkamp had me leaving with I blew my chance at #1, Sunday, to take #1, got to #4 on Monday, then Tuesday lose the job, and lose the single digits and head to triple digits......141, and not playing in a league the rest of the week......heading to Columbia with it though, any off card challengers?

The recently unemployed Mr. Jack Lowe will be in attendance.......anyone need a good HR person to handle their needs?  Over 15 years experience.  I will not be able to work until after the Worlds though, possibly the Pro Worlds as well.....not that I am unemployed, Highbridge is the BOMB!

For trhose that dont like to click links.....

A loss to the Ultimate Frisbee Community

Our prayers are extended to Mike "Bear" Barrett, he has touched many of our lives and has suffered a great loss.

His son Brock Barrett past away July 3rd in a fireworks accident at his home. Brock was a friend to both the ultimate frisbee community, as well as the disc golf community.

Kansas City Ultimate, has set up a Memorial Fund to assist with costs associated with the wake, funeral and medical costs.

Memorial Fund Checks can be made out to:
Mike Barrett

Thanks Mark for the post.

Saturday memorial services are 3-5pm at I believe....I am awaiting to see the Obit on the paper and post for sure.  I would like to have us do something for the family and related expenses at the Sunburn Open this weekend, a general donation of $10/person would go a long way.  I am sure that Brock would have been playing in the event, so it saddens me even more.

Found and Lost / Keys found at Blue Valley
« on: July 04, 2007, 04:36:21 PM »
I was given a key ring with over 11-12 keys this
afternoon as i believe the grass contractors said were
found at Hole 7 tee pad.

They have the grass looking good for the upcoming
Sunburn Open this Saturday.

There are Ford, GMC, Nissan, Haworth, Schlage, and
Magnum keys and i would like to get them out of my
possession soon.

Any one claiming these call me at 816-231-2009.

yes it is.  I think that I heard that it is $20 to play first roud, and $10 each additional round, your lowest score counts....

If you see me, I'll take your you can pre-register by finding me.  Here is the layout that we will be using at Blue Valley:
Hole #2 Big course plays to original basket
Hole #3-will play shorter there is a No Parking sign in the location, just E of shelter and downhill, I am not sure if you can see the No Parking sign from the pad, but I could see the players there while setting it, and you will be able to see basket from pad during event.
Hole #4-same (original)
Hole #5-same (Original)
Hole #6-Short placement
Hole #7-short placement
Hole #8-tee from #8 pad to #9 basket, then walk up towards playground
Hole #9-temp tee from just S of playground (flags placed today) to the trees just NE of Shelter, there is a No Parking sign there as of today as well, on or across the sidewalk to playground will be OB, and the road and across will be OB
Hole #XX(If Needed)-just to the West of temp basket, we will be teeing off to the center island practice area in front of the big shelter all road is OB, and you must be on the grass, or RE TEE
Hole #10-hole #1 Executive course
Hole #11-hole #2 Executive course
Hole #12-hole #3.....see the pattern

Hole XX may be used if we have over 90 players, if we really end up with over 100, then I have another option to bring in a slightly different layout with the temp holes, also then using #1 on the big course in the short setting, and adding another hole or 2 depending on headcount.  I trulyh expect ~60 people, so hopefully that is not going to be an issue though.........

Set up Swope last night in the configuration:
Rocks OB-using painted lines from Wide Open (Best guess in group, but outer edge is the markings, even the Bridges are OB in this event, on the back side)
All Long PADS, EXCEPT #13, will use short pad
Mando's on #1, #14,thinking about a double Mando on #10 but not sure yet about time decision.

Aceable holes at Swope-
(OK 6 if you are A BIG STUD)
(8 see 6)
(11 see 8 or 6)
16(sort of)

@ BV
All The Exec Course, except 9
temp holes should have a shot
#6 is possible
as is #5 (though TOUGH, TOUGH TOUGH)
7 is I guess some people have parked there from conversations around the water cooler....

SO there are plenty O-Aces to look at.

I will be out at BV ~8 to start doing things, and checking people in.  Can use some help from folks if you have time.  It will be fun, hot and though PDGA requires a shirt, with the Sunburn open be sure to have your shuolders showing!!

Thanks Mark, I was just getting ready to send something here as well.

Brock, was the tall lanky bleach blond side arm thrower that was always giving it back as much as he took it.  He generally had a great attitude for disc golf, and was always someone that you could find to play a round with dang near everyday.

This is once again a sad day, as he was with his family and suffered a fireworks accident that eventually took him from us.  I understand in some conversations that he will be creamated and part of his ashes are to be given to Rosedale.  We will do what we can to make this event a great one for Brock, and his family.

My sincere thanks for getting to know him, getting to watch him grow, and my heartfelt sympathies go to his family and friends.  Life is too short, and Brock was too young to leave us all.  I hope and pray that he is in a better place and will be missed by many in the disc golf community.

Sad day for KC Disc Golf,
