Tournaments / Roc vs Buzzz - Swope Park - 9-22-12
« on: August 29, 2012, 11:16:13 PM »
I thought of running this event years ago and wondered why I had never played in one. Well, I may not play in this one, but I am going to do my best at putting on a great event for all the players.

Roc vs Buzzz

September 22, 2012

Swope Park Disc Golf Course

Presented by The Kansas City Flying Disc Club, West Plaza Tomato Company, Disc Golf World, and Dynamic Discs.

Entry fee: $25.00

Check in from 8:00 to 8:30. Players meeting at 8:50. Tee off at 9:00.
Ace Fund is optional at $5.00 and payable cash only on the day of the event. In the event of no aces, a CTP will determine top three pay out spots at 50%, 25%, and 25%.

Players Pack: One custom KC Pro Roc (Rancho) and one custom Z Buzzz, lunch, beverages and a great time. There will be many opportunities for schwag (discs, clothing, and a basket) between CTPs and Ring of Fire competitions.

Tournament will run as follows:

You must throw a Rancho Roc (Rancho Cucamonga mold) or a Buzz (no SS), depending on your team affiliation, from the tee on each hole. You are only allowed to throw your teams disc and only one putter of your choice. You may not throw your putter from the tee. Layout will be long and short with lots of OB and mandos on a twenty-seven hole course.

The idea is simple. Many of us have thrown both discs over the years but have grown to favor one over the other. Players register as Team Roc or Team Buzz and then all fifty-four players on each team play against each other for the right to be called champions. The winning team will be determined by stroke play and point play, and that team will receive a Roc vs Buzzz custom color mini.

First round cards will be two Roc players and two Buzzz players. Second round cards will be stacked with two Roc and two Buzzz players by first round score. However, in addition to strokes, players will also play for points on each card. If you win the card, you win four points for your team. If you are second on the card, then three points. Third, two. And one, one. The point system makes the first and the last card equally competitive for each team, and may also help to break the many anticipated ties.
The top two players on each team will play a final nine holes for a cash payout to the top four players.

I hope to create a fun sense of rivalry and camaraderie for everyone involved. Thanks to the KCFDC, DGW, DD, and West Plaza Tomato, as well the many volunteers who keep Swope and the KCFDC looking good.

Tournaments / KAN U WYCO - Saturday, March 17th
« on: December 19, 2011, 09:06:27 PM »
The KCFDC is accepting proposals for the 2012 KAN U WYCO. A number of individuals have expressed interest in running the event, while the usual suspects have not.

The KCFDC would very much like to be the sponsor of the event. The tournament will be March 17th. Yes, it is St. Patrick's Day. Interested in running the first local PDGA event of the year to kick start the season? 

Interested? Send a proposal with details concerning how much money you will need if any, what the return to the club will be, player's packs for Am and Pro players, any other perks for players and any additional info to any current BoD member and we will, hopefully, make a decision at the January 11th meeting, which all are invited to attend per usual.


Tournaments / Ice Bowl Chili Contest- Organizer and Volunteers Needed!
« on: December 16, 2011, 05:25:16 PM »
The KCFDC is looking for a volunteer to run the food portion of the Ice Bowl on Sunday Jan 29th.

Your responsibilities would include running the chili contest: labeling crocks and pots for judges, organizing the judges/judging, making sure all entries have power (generator- if you have one great, or you know someone- the generator should be large as in industrial), and helping to put out condiments, drinks, plasticware, plates, bowls and napkins all of which is provided by the club. Additionally, anyone who can conjure up some form of sponsorship would be great, either in merchandise, of any type, or gift certificates, etc.

We are also looking for a beer sponsor if you have an in with any local or national brewers.

If interested, please contact me via this board, and I will coordinate with Rick and the club.

Thank you KCFDC community!

General Banter / Glow tonight

I went out to Rosedale after work today to practice a little and after talking to some fellow golfers, Bert, Steve Hostetler and crew, I teed off on number one. Big surprise when I see two people off on the right side near the basket. I hit someone. Crap! My first thought was where the hell did they come from. They were looking for a disc that had gone down the hill on the right. It was a couple. The guy was pissed (for good reason). I went up to them and profusely apologized  and explained I did not see them at all and wouldn't have thrown had I known they were there. They were cool about it after that. She even said it was a "frisbee course" and it happens. I explained that no it shouldn't happen.
My point? Don't know that I have one, but I have always been very aware of the dangers of a flying disc. I felt so bad for hitting someone. Of course, it was an accident. But maybe next time on the tee pad, I'll look and look again.

Barter Town / New, barely used and used discs for sale/trade

I am interested in trading or selling these discs. If you are looking to trade, I am very interested in all Flex plastic, Buzzes, Pro Wraiths, Surge SS, Nuke SS, and old Evolution and $$$ Wizards. If you would like to buy, make an offer. Good deals for multiple discs. Know an organization that can use used discs? I will donate. 816 510 0510.

General Banter / Discgolf in Budapest
« on: December 24, 2009, 05:29:28 AM »
Hey KC golfers!
I am super happy to report there is permanent DG in Hungary now. Actually the sport is growing like mad in Central Europe. the last time I was here there was only one temp course on an island in the Danube. Now they have a club, tourneys, they are on the Austro Hungarian tour and it seems to be taking off  :D
I don't recommend coming here in the winter but a summer trip and you would not be disaappointed. There is a lot more to do than just golf, but hey we have to play golf too, right?
Here is the  their page in  English

Check it out. It is the beginnings of the sport in Eastern Europe, gotta love it!

Report from abroad, over and out!

General Banter / Stolen Mach Lite portable Sep. 19 at Swope
« on: September 21, 2009, 05:33:31 PM »
Reposting this from another board hoping to hear something through the grapevine.

Someone stole my blue and white Mach Lite portable from the picnic table shot shortly after the Ace Race. Pretty much a only a total DB would do this, so if you hear of anything or see one posted somewhere for sale w/o carrying case and flag, please let me know. I have had some luck recovering stolen items before. Karma can be instant, or it can take some time.
