I put together a list of all the leagues, calendar events / logistics, directors, forum info, etc.

Here are the files if you want to use those:

Nice Rob!

Looks great.....now just need a tally just to the right of all these leagues with Ace Fund totals(rising and falling)  :)   

jk, that might be pretty hard with rate at which weekly information gets transported to the club.

The course is set except #1 and #12 need to move to long.

Round 1.
Holes #1-#9 Best Shot
Holes #10-#18 Worst Shot

Round 2.
Holes #1-#9 Best Disc
Holes #10-#18 Alternate Shot

Best Shot: Both players throw and select the best shot.

Worst Shot. The other teams on the card will pick which shot is the worst. Both players must hole out for the hole to be complete.

Best Disc: each player plays the hole as singles and take the best score between the two players.

Alternate Shot: team decides who starts. Players never throw 2 times in a row.

So question:
I currently live in Missouri, but moving to Kansas prior to tournament. Born in Lawrence so I guess that makes me more of a Kansas guy historically. Technically tied for Kansas qualification at Rosedale and will do best to qualify for MO. But are there any rules/precedents on this?

The whole historical,  where your heart is, thing was shot down last year.   You  can only play for the team on the side which you live.

So what's the residency cut-off? It could be set as the date of the event.  But I think the fairest thing to do, for the captains, is to put the cut-off at 2 weeks prior to the event.  That is when tentative rosters are supposed to be set each year.  Where you reside, on that date, ultimately determines which side you're eligible for. This year that date is May 24th.   

I think it logical that if you qualify for one side, then move to the other side of the line, your spot on the moved-from team doesn't travel with you. 

Babbit, Joe would have to determine what he'll do about the tied for spot. But begs the question; do you have to live on the side when you qualify for that side? 

Yeah, we tried keeping Shanan in Kansas last year.  No such luck.  So if Babbit is moving to Kansas, he is ours!  And we will let you have Shanan.




Ties count.  So if you will be living on this side of the line before May 24th,  you are on the Kansas team (And we will be happy to have you, even with your Silly Babbit remarks earlier this year  :o -
Any team leader for the East that gets Tanya Harding (played by Jack) to bash the knee caps of Nancy Kerrigan (played by Joe) with a bat I will vote for.


But I do need to know before the next qualifier (April 13th), because that will drop the 6 spots available to 5.

Tracy??

Only rule I see is "The one and only hard and fast rule here is that you must reside in the state of the side you’re to play for."

I'd say that if you will living on Kansas side before tourney, then you belong to us ;D  But I don't make the rules.

I think those official ratings are dropping a lot more because the pools are being combined when they become official.  SMP Frostbreaker for example:  The pro/adv pool is being lumped in with the Int/rec pool, that played on 2 different days; one being 50 degrees and the other 0 degree wind chill.  I believe that is why ratings dropped 20 points.  Wyco and Rosie will do the same.  Happened last year the same way.

If all the 970-990 rated players from KC, rented a bus and went on tour together with the big boys, we would all be 1000 rated players.  And not because we would get better, but because we would be playing with higher rated players.  Stupid system. 

If you go to one of Rob's or Jack's PDGA leagues and you are the highest rated player by 20 points, you better beat everybody there by 2 strokes just to match your rating.  Doesn't even matter is everyone in league shot better than normal.

                                              I had posted a few weeks ago the schedule for olathe league....pc in April all month with a 5:30 start.

Ok.
Please show me where you posted this schedule at, because I have looked in all the obvious places...outside of your pocketbook.

Maybe I'm blind though.

OK, so now that everyone has talked smack, do we know what Olathe league night will be a qualifier? It would be awesome for the hubs to try to qualify and he is a boss at his job, so I wanna be sure he can compete. Thanks.

As soon as Olathe (Bom Tutler) posts which course they will be playing league on which Mondays, I will be able to set a date.  But I had the same problem last year, trying to get a hold of that guy.  He used to be the fastest poster in the West.  Really slacking lately Tom  :'(


So I guess Tom is in Jamaica for a bit.   So I will go ahead and set a date, and hopefully he can coordinate with me.

How bout we keep this forum for West Side information, and you fools take your KU/MU BS to the tournament forum.  http://kcfdc.org/forum/index.php?topic=10940.75

Personally, I like to leave the schools out of this, and consider this more like Hicks vs. Hillbillies, where the Hicks kick out a few more of your teeth again this year. :-X

Isn't Isaac from Lawrence?  I may not have read the rules so forgive my ignorance if it isn't in there, but is there a radius to pull players from?  Just curious....just want to clarify before eMac shows up at the team challenge or something.

Rules:

If you live in the designated area and are a KCFDC club member, you are eligible for the Kansas City Team Championship.
   -- The one and only hard and fast rule here is that you must reside in the state of the side you’re to play for. The rest of these rules are purely to prevent “ringers” from being brought in from other parts of the state for either team.
   -- I’ll call the first the Amanda line and its KevMo exception.  The line within which you must reside is a circle of 50 mile radius drawn with its center at the confluence of the Kansas and Missouri rivers.  It was originally drawn at 50 miles to include Amanda Jackson in the event, who at the time lived in St Joseph, MO. The exception; it is possible someone resides outside that 50 mile radius circle but has been and is a very active volunteer of the KCFDC.  Kevin Montgomery comes to mind as one who fits this exception.
   -- The second is KCFDC membership. You must belong to the club or are heavily involved both historically and currently with the Kansas City area disc golf community.
   -- Exceptions to the eligibility rules can be decided on by the captains and the event coordinator.  Again, the rules here are not meant to exclude valued members of the KC disc golf community,  but rather to prevent either side from bringing in ringers from outside of our local community. 



We have always had Lawrence players on our team.  Cooper, JAtwater, Nick Alteri.  As long as they are part of the club, they are in the 50 mile radius that was originally designated.
