It just dawned on me that this is the Shunga weekend....sux, I will probably not play in either of these now....sad that we didn't look at the schedule on this one for certain.

Yeah Jack we all realized the Shunga was that weekend, bu with the schedule being so full, this was the best we, DD and KCFDC, could do. I know KC has enough players to fill both local events and have some people at the Shunga.

Sounds really cool, hope to play in this event. I suppose since there are one of each disc in the players pack, there could be some trading going on. I'd happily trade the Roc to someone for their Buzzz. ;D

You may want to keep both discs as the art on each disc complements the other. Will post as soon as the proofs have been approved.

Really looking forward to it!

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. Playerís 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 teamís 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.

What? You've never been to Horse Shoe Canyon?

Wow, Loomis. That's a ton of golf, and it's no wonder you play well every where you go. Thanks again.

Overheard at LDO X, "Hey did you guy's see the touring PROs?"

I was out there today for some trash cleanup and pin movement. After the trash, I was zonked by the heat, so only moved 1,2,and 4. Little hot for me so I will not be out for doubles tonight. Good luck. Shoot from long pads.

i was using wd-40, is krill oil better for you?

WD-40 only attracts dirt.

Wish I could have made it Saturday. It looks like it was a great day for golf at WW.

Well if it's not about the money, why don't we lower the entry fee to $3 and make it winner take all?

I'm lost. ?

Wow I get to post another ace! Arturo hit 18 short at WW last night with a Star Destroyer. It was a beautiful shot, and we stood there in disbelief that he  got that super tight hyzer line to work. Once it had missed the first tree on the right, we all knew it had a chance.  Nice one Arturo!
Heck of a week for league aces!

That would be Mr. Fred Fortsen.  Easy hyzer, dead on line the whole way.  Well worth the $5 to witness it.  Good shot Fred!

Thanks Palmer.

Well Van made it even easier and we played the short pads. Fred Fornsten (SP?) got the only ace on hole 11. Couldn't happen to a better guy.
