I can't believe I read this whole thread! Pretty funny stuff. I loved talking trash when I played hoops. This game is any given day fellas (includes the commish), and anyone can come out on Sunday and whoop it or suck it. It's happened to all of us.

I'm with Tom on this one. Tracy is coming off that ace at WYCO and has got to be super confident. If attitude indicates performance (something I have said many times), I should see all of you trash talkers on the top card second round.  ;)

OUT with my money on mind and my mind on Spencer's neckbeard, E

Thanks for the shout out Eric.  I hit #1 Prairie Center today, so... 2 aces in 2 days.  Pretty sweet.  Ryan O was there to sign my disc.

Hell yeahs! You go JoNathan! They usually come in 3's for me. Another tomorrow3?

Jon Robertson threw a Pro Wraith into the chains on 17 at Rosedale this evening. It was pure-ific! Nice one Jon.

Tournaments / 2010 YOUNG PARK ACE RACE - October 23rd at Young Park
« on: August 22, 2010, 11:32:13 AM »
hopefully a mid-range this year.  i thought having a putter sucked last year.  Timko's course was sweet, but several of the holes were unreachable to players who dont throw putters long (like me).
First, good shooting at LDO! Second, I agree. Though as we, Tim Becks, C. Timko, and EKolk, set up the course, Timko called one of those shots as unace-able, and I proceeded to smash it. I am a little biased towards Ace races as I can't seem to lay up.Hence, my crazy tournament play. :) However, I agree a midrange, similar to 2008's Nebula, levels the field for more players. And it seems Discraft has gone back to something like the Nebula by the looks of the rim. I call mine Buzz Jr. as it is a smaller diameter and slightly faster.

Eric, Thanks for putting this on! It's on my calendar. I imagine Theiss is gonna help out too, eh? That will rock, John's da man!

This is one of the best disc golf events in KC hands down. I have played this event for the past 3 years and it gets better and better. I can't believe I am going to write these words, but Dick, Jack and Kate  :) put on a great event.  :P Jack should recognize sarcasm  :o.
Looking forward to it very much and I am bringing the same new players I brought last year. One of which, Thomas (aka the black guy), now regularly kicks my ass.
Come on out and show support for Dick, Jack, and all the other Leos in the mix.

Okay, This is Eric Kolkmeier. A little confusion on which E is being addressed. Tim is out on the Ace Race this year, and it looks like I am too. I was thinking about doing one the  second weekend in September, but I will be out of town so much I really don't think I can put on one to better last year's. And if I don;t have the time/energy to better it, I am not doing it.

A few words of advice. If you want to put one on, it doesn't have to be a Discraft event. Last year was great, but so many people wanted to throw whatever they wanted, and I agree. You can provide a disc or a tee or lunch or beverages for a lesser entry and give back more to the players. That is a if it is designed to be a player's event. I had a blast being creative on the course design and got lots of feedback for it. The point is to make the format creative. So many people have told me Ace Races are mediocre because of a lack of creativity and fun. Both Discraft and Innova have competitive sponsor packages.Rick has always been super helpful as well. I am also willing to help out if I can. Email me if needed.

I played Old Pike on Saturday for the first time in about 9 months, and it was great. Thanks to all who have put in the labor and creativity.  It is sweet. The wooded holes, 11 -14, remind me of Down Under years ago.  I really enjoyed the tee signs, seriously I laughed, and holes 4 and 5 are such sweet ace runs. Ching!
So yeah a big thumbs up to all! I did see Mike working on Saturday (man it was hot).;)

There where way to many aces at worlds this year.
And, yet the spelling error remains. D'oh! I gotta disagree with the statement as well.
Desmond Tutu Too many aces? I have never heard of such a thing.

Go Peter and Adam!!! Worlds Ace!!! We're all jealous.

Yeah a lot of wackiness this weekend. A big shout to all the great people I had the pleasure of playing with. That includes three rounds with Slim, who helped me keep my cool as I continued to suck it up royally. Also, Joe from IA, Tom from St.L, Matt Shively, and oh yeah thanks to Tim Becks for Caddy action Sunday morning! The upside to this was playing with many equal or better players way down on the low end of MA1. We all have bad weekends and I was on the losing end this time around.

Thank you Rick, Jeremy, Kevin, Ed, and all the rest. Wide Open was great.

I beat Hummel.  ;)

Furthermore, thinking before typing is always a better idea.  It's just a thought. Punctuation also really helps.
 Calling your peers morons doesn't make a good first impression either. A very confusing message all in all. ???

But let's not forget all the super awesome people who gave time, energy, and money to make the event happen. They are the ones that really matter not opinions about coulda, shoulda, woulda.

Congrats again to Dave for back to back aces on the same hole in two days!!! You deserve to bask in the disc golf sun a little more!!!
;D ;D ;D

We could call it "Fully Unaware of the Contact until they Kick your ass during Incredible Nite Guts Golf for the Neurotic -- a Unique Triple Scramble"

Love this! Big SMILE across my face!

Wow! I'm stoked this is a topic. When I moved to KC, I had played ultimate the previous four years and immediately went back to disc golf and ran the course to get some more exercise. I carried three discs and, depending on the heat, a bottle of water. Think Biathlon, x country skiing and shooting a rifle extremely well while your heart wants to jump out of you chest, it is great! I love the concentration.
Since then I have have started carrying more 12oz beverages and taking much longer with friends that I've made on the course. It goes without saying: disc is awesome because of the people.

So as much fun as running is, how to make a competitive event and keep the peeps involved? Multiple challenge event? Speed, Putting, and Relay wrapped into a time competition? Ultimate and disc in the same event? Thoughts?

Thanks to Dick, Kevin, Billy, Tracy, Drew, Rick, and everyone else who helped make Kan U Wyco happen. It was another windy, cold Kansas day out on the plain, but we made the best of it and had a great tournament. I had the pleasure of playing with two great groups. While we didn't shoot the best, we did have great time playing golf.

Hell Yeah! Kudos Pete. And KC's Joe Engelman threw a 55 (976 rated) today after putting two in the water and one OB. Not bad for anyone I'd say.  We'll see how his old man does tomorrow (along with the other KC ams)
