Tournaments / Re: KC's FIRST EVER ACE RACE!!!!
« on: September 18, 2009, 09:54:16 PM »
The course is awesome! We played some of it tonight while flagging and marking the holes. I hit chains once and stuck one from about 180 feet out (Timko said something about it being one of the harder shots  ;)). The disc is faster than the Wizard, not as stable, but flies very true. Just took a couple throws to get the feel for it. We overthrew a couple without trying to hard, so I think everyone has a chance at hitting an ace.

So if we get there at 9, will we be able to warm up with the focus'? Get used to them and stuff?

Sure you can get warmed up. This is a rolling start though. So once you have got 4,5,6 players on a card, we'll send you out. Just would like to get players out by 10ish to ensure lots of time for games and such between and get in the second round by 1:30 -2ish. Looking forward to it!

Doh! Did I ever mention random doubles afterwards. Five bucks a man, playing tee pads to numbered flags. Ace Race will finish early, so if you can stay, play!

Andy, you can pick up you player's pack starting at 9:00. As far as choice goes, it's one ESP and one D first come, first serve.
Glover, Glad to hear you can make it out even of for just suds and plastic, next time for sure. Get that knee back in shape!
everyone else, I am flippin' stoked about this! I am working on your maps right now. Thanks Dick and Timco. Big thanks to Tim Becks for doing the leg work while I have been working like a dog (the life of adjunct faculty...). Tyrone showing up to spin the wheels o steel too.
So show up, get a group together, and run 'em. Two reminders: we will have a big boy ace fund of ten greenbacks to be split by the number of aces, and while we will provide beverages, (thanks to Gomers and  VitaminWater) we will not have any food (no budget for it), so you might wanna bring a snack  :P
A shout out to Jim Neal as well, high fives all around, but no singing  ;D

Tim, Timko, and I laid out the Ace Race course today, and it is flippin fun. There are a couple of holes at 200, most about 140 -110, a few even shorter but all with some challenge. It's a Safari Ace Race for sure. I think we settled on 21 holes, so you get three extra shots at points and/or cash (for those in the optional ace pool). Can't wait, gonna be fun 8)  Oh yeah,the lay out includes some stacked baskets, a hanging basket, and surprises to come ::)

Chappy had  a great question for me today...If someone was interested in getting a player's pack but can't make it to the Ace Race what could they do? Just sign up with Tim Becks or Eric Kolkmeier or online reg. and we will get it to you.  E

Lion's Den 7 was awesome! Thanks to everyone involved! Mini Golf was as much fun as the regular course. Doubles was great. Hell it was all great, except for losing to MAtt "Bagger" Parker for the second year in a row by one stroke!  >:( :o I can only blame myself in the end 8)
I brought out three new players and one, Thomas, went home with booty. They all loved it and I expect to see them at more events supporting KC Disc Golf. Thanks again,
 Eric

Lars, Thanks for the input. We have heard a lot of the same on distances and changing up the shots. All the feedback we can get is great! Thinking about some really fun shots for this event. Can't wait to throw the Discraft Wiz, and yes that is the same description I have heard about it. Waiting on player packs now. :o

Hey y'all,
   Thanks so much for the input from everyone. Tim and I have talked at length about the who, what, when, where, how and feel pretty good about this event. We will definitely pull from Slim, Timco, and Dan Cashen for their ideas on setting up an Ace Race course. Additionally, there will be field events between the two rounds i.e. Putting comp, Maximum Time Aloft, Longest/most accurate drive, etc. Tim and I want to make this fun, with lots of good ace runs, music, friends, and lots of prizes.
   
  I am stoked to see this much interest in this already. The past Ace race prototype discs have been awesome. Perhaps you throw a Zone? It was proto two years ago. Last year's was killer before I lost it Down Under (I called it Buzz Jr.)For everyone with ideas on how to do this, we appreciate the positive. :) Details to come on Reg. and course layout. Remember, Most Fun Wins!

In short, the new tee signs are awesome. I played at WW tonight and really like the design and read-ability. Good work Dick and Tracy, we all appreciate it, even if some have different ways of showing it  :P
  Again, Thanks, E

No, YOU guys are cracking me up. Love it. Yes I had some issues with the slayer at first (first round at the hills). In fact had all kinds of issues, sh1tty course, poor spotters, rain, and a  poor attitude, but got over it and fell into the groove of playing golf...and that is why we hit the course time and time again.
   An excellent time all in all and what a showing from KC. Congrats to all. Thanks for the props Palmer. See you all in OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOlathe, then the Lion's Den. E

KC disc golfers,
    Thank you. I received a  from Joe E. saying that a player at Swope found my sunglasses, said player gave them to Joe, and will be returned to me later today. Thanks to everyone who kept their eyeballs peeled. Our community is is why we rock!!
