No problem on the timing. This is one of the best events all year simply because of the cause. KC metro area can support two events the same day/weekend and especially events like this.
I just checked in w/ my partner and looking forward to this event again.

Word on the street is that David Wiggins tossed a light weight BOSS and a KATANA over 800 feet.

He threw two discs at the same time and they went 800 feet?! Awesome is that even legal?  :)

Joking aside, I picked up one of these blizzard plastiques today and look forward to finessing it into distances yet unknown to me.

Here is a list of everyone who brought Chili. We thank you all. You can tell form the points is was a tight competition. As noted the tie was broken between 16 and 21.

I believe that 21 and 16 were the tying chili's, which was Lee's, and the winner Nick Davis in an official test tasting, where it was determined, that "the flavor, and the aftertaste have that of a thouroughbread Champ, it's your winner, it has a Champion's breed taste."

I believe that the names of the people that supplied the chili will be posted soon.  Remember folks it takes all of the great people in our community to take the time out of their life to make it more enjoyable for us to play.  Seeing 97 non-playing helpers, awesome.  Seeing the people helping, and really supporting the event, and following directions for the chili wait, even better.

My personal favorite though was #18 "Bar Chili" !!  One of the best stories of the Chili contest in Ice Bowl history if I had to say so myself.  Beats any of the concoctions that I have created.......what a hoot!

Okay, I couldn't resist and had to weigh in on this.

First and foremost, Arthur's, Gate's, and LC's blow Okey Joe's away. But I'll eat a Carolina or a Z-man in a heart beat.   :)

I gotta agree with Kevin and Cooper, and as a result, I have to agree with Mike and Loomis. Yes, it is capitalism at work. There is a market which I think can support more than one DG store, and so does DD and investors.
Mike and Loomis are correct that any for profit business has a primary goal. Now, I do not agree with the tone of some of the comments (my opinion) as both DG retailers in town are and have been generous and supportive because it just makes sense to perpetuate the business they are involved in. Ultimately, this makes KC even better for disc golfers and the sport over all. True, we may not all agree on how profiteering is done, yet it is a result of the system which makes disc golf possible.

Even with my rational understanding of the system, I do think there is some merit to concerns of a "take over" which we have seen manifested as a shared perception of competition. This competition is not on the retail level but the club level.
Chappy has a point of making sure club events are not crowded out by DGW or DD events, while both support, they do not serve the same purposes, and members would see the difference over time.

Agree? Disagree? All the more reason to weigh in on the club mission statement.

Volunteers have mentioned they will bring extra cords and power strips but , if have your own, it couldn't hurt. :)

Kelly,
I missed your post earlier, but to answer the club provides cheese, crackers, and usually Fritos as well. However, any food items you would like to contribute are always welcome. Our IceBowl doesn't collect food for a pantry, but instead gives cash to pantries. However, we do collect food to feed hungry disc golfers on what may be a cold day after all. Who knows around here though.

CHILI! CHILI! CHILI! CHILE! CHILLY! CHILI!

I wish Drew had an original design he had drawn. Then it would be the one you drew Drew. Or maybe in random draw doubles one could say they drew Drew. Surely an old joke, I know poorly drawn conclusion.

Back to the topic, Tree Love artwork.

"We're looking for a person or a team of people who will work with me but will take responsibility for the lunch and the chili contest. This includes finding a generator or generators to power 30-40 crocks of chili, securing bowls and utensils, securing soft drinks, and suggesting or securing a cool prize for the Chili Contest winner. The KCFDC is producing this event and will pay for the what needs to be paid for."

We are two weeks away from the 25th KC Ice Bowl, and we have a generator thanks to Glover. We have bowls, utensils, and napkins thanks to Hal. The club is taking care of drinks and the miscellaneous. Yours truly is going to head up the food portion of the event, but we still need somethings. First, crocks of chili! In the past years I have tasted quite the variety of chili from smoked everything to a green curry chicken chili. Bring out your chili, and we will have the rest. I am also looking for some judges with discerning palates  :D ;D Send me a message if you would like to volunteer your taste buds and subjectivity to chili and a good cause.

Again great job! Can we get a round of applause over here for BV? I can't wait to play this course again tomorrow. Really fun. Some great tweener shots and some real deuce possibilities even for an Am like me  :) The bushes and trees are going to make such a difference as well. Again, bravo!

Played new BV set up today with 7 others. Most of us shot 59 and 60 with Nick Wink shooting a respectable 55. It's a great new set up. In fact, I want to play it again tomorrow. It is so much more fun. I was not exhausted at all after playing it either. I think the BV and BS combo adds the fatigue factor and those who are more physically fit and can play 6 hours a day of consistent golf will make some positive moves. Great work to all involved. BV is moving up on my list very quickly.

Great thread and great discussion many good points made by many.


On the initial discussion of DD coming to town, the 2011 Ace Race was sponsored by the KCFDC, DGW, and  DD as well as a host of others (Tall Grass, Fore Twenty, P.E.) and without everyone's participation, it would not have been a good event for the players, which we were able to include an additional 50 players with DD's help.

Yes, having DD or other vendors run some events in cooperation with the KCFDC has been discussed in meetings and the conclusion has largely been the club would prefer to have club members run events or even the club run events, but as Jack mentioned, we just do not get enough volunteers from our membership to run as many events as we would like. And if it makes the experience better for the players, then yeah. Personally, as a player not a BoD member, I am happiest with whoever can provide a great event for the players (merch., games, food, beverages, etc.) and give some money back to the club.

Rick has mentioned his interest in working with Jeremy not against him. If it can benefit the club and its members, then why not? There is a big difference here though, the KCFDC is a club. All the others, as Loomis noted, are separate entities with one primary goal: to make money. There is nothing wrong with that but thw two are not comparable in that way.


About the WO, if we as members really want to bring the "magnitude" up on this event, we need to find sponsors, or just be sponsors. Not big ones, just small ones, 25.00, 50.00, 100.00 multiplied by 20,30 or 50 goes a long way towards providing more for the players. I am really happy to see the discussion go back to this event and players saying more of what they want and after reading the initial plans for the WO, it also seems our voices have been heard.  :)

Yeah, I haven't played out there much lately but Loomis pointed out all the dead and, as of today, many more cut down. A few holes are less challenging as of today.

I did play the new hole 13 for the first time and it is a great hole. I took a five on it and, while I know it is not that hard, felt okay with it. Nice work and thanks!
