Never played a 'real' tourney.  I am a bogey to par type player.  I have been playing super causal rounds for a few years......
Since i made this post i started writing down my score on every hole, every round.  It seems i am/was a bit disillusion.   Lets just go ahead and take Par out of that sentence. 

Nothing wrong with that...just means lots of room to improve ;D  And playing in a tourney will get you hooked fast.

I like it to be a little stiff with just a bit of give and nice grip/feel.

Whoa, keep it PG.  Are we still talking about Wizards?!?  Or are we now on to Magic....Mike.

Kansas!!

Want to get some dates set-up early, so there is not so much last minute hustling.

The Team Challenge will be the weekend of June 6/7.  So if you can't play that weekend, don't worry about reading anything else.

16 players + 4 alternates on the team.

First 6 spots will be given to the Lowest 6 scores at the Rosedale Cup, March 14th/15th.

Next 6 spots will be given to Lowest scores at one chosen Kansas league in April

Last 4 spots given at a last chance Qualifier, open to all west side participants.  But will be played in Match-play format.  Names drawn from hat and put into Bracket.  9-hole Matches.  Winners move on until there remain only 4.  Course TBD.  I would like to do this in May, but most of the weekends are taken up. 

So I need some feedback....We can either do this match-play qualifier on Sunday the 17th of May, a day after Paradise Diamond.  Or, I think we could pull it off on a weeknight.  As long as everybody that wanted in got signed up early, I could have the bracket made up, and we could tee off at 6 and finish before dark.

Last 4 Spots are Captain's picks, including myself if I do not qualify beforehand.  And yes Lee, I do believe some delicious lunch just may buy your way in  ;)  But play your way in first!

If anyone on this great side of the border has any ideas or comments on anything, please speak up!  The rest of you LEast-siders,  p!ss off.

Let us get this 3-peat Championship Train rolling!!!

I don't want any more excuses from the losing side, and I believe we need to try our best to have the best players possible competing.

Here is an idea?

What if we had the Alternate shot round around 5 pm during the mid week (Wed,Thurs, Fri), and then we would only require players to have to commit to one weekend day?

Thoughts?

Or we could have all 3 rounds on consecutive weekday nights and not even use a weekend.

Agree, I think the Midwest Doubles Championship could really pull away talent from the team challenge.  I know I would choose Kansas first, but some people really love their doubles.

Joe, were you still considering using Lakeside Hills for the Saturday, alt shot round?  If so, perhaps we could work with the MDC organizer to have them start early (like 8:00 am tee). Then take a 3 hour or so lunch to allow the Team Challenge to use the course.  When the Team Challenge is done, then they start their afternoon round. Plenty of daylight early June to pull it off. Doing this makes it so neither event has to change dates, in addition to allowing players to participate in both, if they choose. 

It's a fine solution for one year, but Team Challenge has foothold on claim for first weekend in June.  I don't think the Team Challenge should have to accommodate the new event every year.  So making an exception this year may only set precedence for continued conflict on this weekend.

Lakeside was #1 on my list for Alternate-shot Saturday.  I think the team challenge is turning into a pretty awesome event for KC, and I would really like to see the first weekend in June locked down for years to come...with the exception of KCWO needing that weekend.  DDKC? Chime in, and let us know what we can work out.

I think there could be a lot of people from surrounding areas that would be interested in playing the Midwest Doubles Championships...

How about the Midwest Team Championships!?!?!

Could be an idea for the future.

Not listed on the PDGA site.

Completely agree with Tracy on this, especially since the MO KAN BEAT KANSAS event is something that we all want to see.....

June 6th - Midwest Doubles Championship - B Tier - (Lakeside Hills, Olathe, KS)

That doubles event is in conflict, locally, with the Club's Team Challenge Event.  It wasn't on the BoD's calendar when I attended the board meeting, in January, to finalize the date for the Team Challenge.  I don't think it is fair to make locals choose between the two events.  As such, one of them should be rescheduled.  Who is organizing the Midwest doubles event?

Can't we just give Texas back to Mexico already?  What a shame.  These people need to be banned from tourneys all together.

Hey Tracy

Did we figure out a good weekend to run the Team Challenge?  Does June 6 & 7 work again?

Fun and Money for the Charity, yes yes it is.  It can't all be about the money though that helps.  It is about helping others who need it, so planning the event/venues was something that I worked with hard.  Just didn't want people to feel as "rushed" as they may have in the past, so this year I was hopeful that not only would this enable us to raise more money, but also allow for a better experience on the 25th for all to enjoy, and little more camaraderie time for us all.

We need more Chug Rum Balls to enjoy don't we, and less waiting in line to throw? ;D 

Agreed, this is way better.  And the money will still be there, and perhaps more with people playing more than 1 round.

Don't throw in the water.

If I lose one in the water and I am not willing to go in and get it or find something to pull it out, that means I gave up, therefore it is lost.  It is free game to someone else in my opinion.  I lost one in the pond at PC on Sunday.  Didn't feel like swimming, so whoever finds it, throw it well.

If it goes in the water, it was most likely a bad shot that you didn't commit to, therefore you didn't trust the disc anyway, so you need to be rid of it.

Also if someone is there at the time when you throw your shot in the water swimming for discs or raking, and gets your disc out for you....give them a couple $'s at least.  Because they saved you from having to go swimming.

Now discs in the woods or left in the fairways....that's a different story.  RETURN them to their owner.

So who's running this now? Not team captains, but the big picture. Serious question. Tracy?

Tracy started this thing, and if he is willing, I think he should always be the main man behind the scenes.  Besides, he has the 2-time defending champs trophy, and we will need it back to fill in that 4th side with West Side names.

Joe, great idea to hold a mini match play event for the remaining qualifying spots on  the West Side.  That'll be interesting and exciting. I'm glad you're calling out the qualifying process now. It will give people a chance to start preparing.

This is an elitist event.  We have plenty of come one, come all and/or first come, first served tournaments.  I pushed format changes the past two years to make the event as simple as possible to manage and for others to understand. I believe the event is in good shape now. I want the 16 playing spots on each team to be coveted, highly sought after.  Expanding the rosters will only serve to diminish the value of qualifying for this event.  As such, let's not do anything to change the actual event format and let some tradition establish itself.

Tracy, I agree with everything you are saying.  One should definitely have to work hard and earn their spot on one of these elite teams.  This is not for the casual golfer.  This is a team event built for the best vs. the best.  The only reason I want it raised to 20 people is if, and only if, we are going to add a women's and junior's division.  I don't want to take away 4 of the 16 coveted spots for women and children. 

BUT, I don't believe we should just add Women and children divisions because there is 2 women and 1 kid that wants to play.  They should have to earn their spot on a team just as the men do.  Which means there needs to be more competitive women and juniors.  Just because 1 side has 2 women that want to play, doesn't mean the other team should have to go out and find 2 women "that don't necessarily want to play" to fill their spots.

If ladies and juniors want on the teams, I suggest they start recruiting some friends that they can compete against.  And we could hold a Women's and/or Juniors ONLY Qualifier.

But until there is enough interest from numbers of women and kids...I suggest we just leave it to 16.  And if 1 lady/kid really wants to play....they can QUALIFY, like the rest of us.

Start working on your game east side....

Kansas has had a couple new and old ringers move to town   ;D

I will likely follow the 6-6-4 qualifying format as well, with 6 spots selected at the Rosedale Open.

As for course selection, we should be playing at a course that plays to the EAST SIDE's strengths, and I have a few ideas on that front.  However, that discussion should take place in a more private setting.  :-X

First of all, keep your Qualifiers in your own state.

Secondly, Heritage and Lakeside are bluff moves to get you to go practice them.  Meanwhile, we will be practicing on our own private temp course, that will only be revealed to Least-siders on tee-time.  ;D


Last.....what strengths?
