« on: April 05, 2012, 12:14:21 AM »

New player league is simply a league for new/newer players to play with more experienced players.  This way, whether through active "coaching" or just watching the more experienced players, the newer player can get tips on throwing, rules, and play in general.  As Ben mentioned, he tries to get local pros to give clinics a few times during the season (usually meet at Swope for the clinics).  As of right now, we are starting at 5:30 so we can fininsh before dark.  Hope to see you there.

Andrew actually talked to them on Sunday at the tourney about it.  Andrew PM'd Smitty on Monday after he (Smitty) had posted here and we saw the incorrect score on the PDGA site not catching that he wasnt the TD.  I posted here since the score was still incorrect. Andrew will email Scott since he now knows Smitty wasnt the TD.

Andrew Walters score is still incorrect.  He shot a 63 (round rating of 792) the first round, not a 67.  Please correct.

The Brass Rail at 152 and Brighton is a pretty cool place.  Tons of TVs, pool tables and the food is pretty good although slightly overpriced.


What about a good sports bar and grill, maybe somewhere in the North KC area, to watch the Jayhawk game?

If you can only get in one course, I would recommend Blackthorn.  I love Beaver Creek, but the 'Thorn is a little more rounded course, longer, has all the pads (Beaver is still missing a couple due to changes to the layout) and they just finished hole 15 I hear.  If you can get in two, I'd suggest adding Beaver.  Woodhenge is a killer course by itself and when I played the Henge and Blackthorn together, my arm was spaghetti by the end.   

Wanting to do the Smithville complex maybe Saturday morning, more likely Friday evening.  Which courses should we play if we only have time for 2?  Which if we can do only 1?

NP...I hit Renny long and Charlotte's Web.  Talk about a noodle arm after that....throwing almost 4 miles in one day (18k feet straight line let alone fade/errant shots - lost my blizzard wraith on Renny).  I hope to make it back there to try a couple more courses if I have any time off while im here in NC.  I'll give that Speed shop a try if I do make it back.

How long will you be there, Van?  I'm actually headed that direction and will be there next weekend (to Ft Bragg) and will be there for a while.  Might get to hit one of the courses together.

Maybe...doing Ice Bowl this weekend with the family.  It might be next weekend (depending on the weather) before we get a chance to do it.

After looking at the map, here is an option I came up with.  It eliminates the walking to the starting hole but would still require a shuttle system (dont see a way around that, unfortunately).

Hole #      Course hole                                Hole #      Course hole                       Hole #      Course hole

1                Beaver 8 (to 10's basket )          10             Beaver 4                             19           Blackthorn 13
2                Beaver 11                                   11             Blackthorn 1                        20          Blackthorn 9
3                Beaver 13                                   12             Blackthorn 15                      21          Woodhenge 11
4                Beaver 15                                   13             Blackthorn 16                      22          Woodhenge 12
5                Beaver 17                                   14             Blackthorn 17                      23          Woodhenge 13
6                Beaver 18                                   15             Blackthorn 18                      24          Woodhenge 15
7                Beaver 1                                     16             Beaver 5                              25          Woodhenge 16
8                Beaver 2                                     17             Beaver 6                              26          Woodhenge 17
9                Beaver 3                                     18             Beaver 7                              27          Woodhenge 18

You could also take out Beaver 6&7 and insert Blackthorn 10 (after #9) and Woodhenge 14 (after #13) instead.  That would be a longer walk between Beaver 5/Blackthorn 13 without playing, but would give more balance on the courses (13/7/7 vs. 11/8/8).  Just a thought.  I gotta get out and attempt Shoreline!!!!

My first timer chili will be there along with my home made salsa to add some zing :D

Chili it is, then. 

In all fairness a judge should never be in the contest.

I agree...that is why I said I would do either/or....not both.

Which do you need more....chili or judges?  I can do either.  Was planning on bringing chili, but if you need a judge more, I'll help out with that instead.

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.

As a new clubmember (and new to competitive disc golf) I find it difficult to bridge the knowledge gap between participating in a tournament and what it actually takes to run a tourney.  I DO know that there is infinately more than just showing up and blowing a horn to start.  Is there any kind of checklist or is it up to each TD to "reinvent the wheel"?  A possibility to facilitate the transfer of knowledge would to be a club requirement of assisting at a tourney during the year to maintain your "good" standing.  That way, the members WITH the knowledge could tutor those that dont have it yet and ensure the same people arent being tagged to run events by themselves.  Also, if it were a club requirement, more people would inclined to actually participate in thier club.  I see/hear about the same core people doing things....what about the other 150+ members?  This could be tied in with the Club Championships at the end of the year similiar to the other requirements: being paid up, playing all four rounds, etc.  In order for this concept to be successful, however, there would need to be more tourneys scheduled by the club to enable a wide variety of dates and locations for everyone to help at.

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.  :)

What are the levels of sponsorship (and what do you get for them) is my first question on this.  Personally, I have been considering this for my DJ/Karaoke/Photography business that has been on hold for a while (but I am looking at getting it back up and running), but have not seen any info before this.  Secondly, if that info is available in a printed and professional format, it would make it much easier to approach a business owner/manager and make a presentation for sponsorship.  It may be too late for some companies to commit for this year, but there is always next year for them and those that still have advertising/sponsorship funds available would need to see something soon I would imagine.
