Tournaments / Re: East Vs. West 2016--June 18th and 19th Location TBD

MO. side contains approximately 4800 square miles, or 61% of the 50 mile radius circle around the metro area.  KS side occupies approximately 3054 square miles, or 39% of the circle.  Gathering as much recent estimates of population as I could, I found that MO side has 832,000 residents plus outlying small towns.  KS side has 767,400 residents plus outlying small towns.  Since MO has over 1 and half times the square mileage, I am sure the total population of outlying towns in MO would easily outpace the numbers in KS.

Given this, my guess is that if the address records for the KCFDC membership were public, one could reveal that more club members reside in MO than KS.

During our last Club Elections there was a map that showed the disc golfer population in our city and it showed beyond a doubt that there are more disc golfers on the West side.  I know someone from the club can produce this map for us here. 

My main objection is having Lawrence participate.  No offense to the Lawrentians, I love you guys.

Statistically, west side seems to have an edge winning four consecutive times.I'll do my research to support my theory next.

No need to dig.  I think Jose's point is that west side has a greater number of quality players than east side.  But that's the entire basis of this competition; Which side is better.  Then which side can bring their best game on Challenge weekend.  Jose appears to get bitter in defeat because he is a passionate competitor.   

Despite our differences in opinion around the Team Challenge, I personal enjoy seeing Jose's name consistently high up in tourney results against the best in country. And now with the Challenge over, I can go back to rooting for him again.

Tracy, my opinions on this subject in no way shape my personal opinions of you, which are that you are an ambassador to the sport and someone our community should have more of, I want you to know that.  Thank you for your words.

What difference does it make?

Okay, you don't care.  We get it.

"your" trophy guy.  Have him change it.  You give it to me and I'll make your plaques have asterisks on them.

But for real, move our plaque back to the front of the trophy.  That's a sheisty move.

Well, congratulations to Twin Cities on their "Kansas City" Challenge victory.  You played very well and overcame a deficit after two rounds to clinch a win by slaughtering our geographically and disc golfer population statistically inferior team.  We gave your Samsonite squad all we could muster but in the end you outperformed our very capable and highly skilled team.  Kudos.

After four losses in a row I especially agree that our First Place plaque should have been moved off to the side of the trophy.  Why tarnish such a beauty with that blemish. 

Sarcasm aside, I love all you guys that were out there today.  I play with each and every one of you, on both sides, all year and you push me to be better.  I'm very happy for all your effort and for the heart you put into each and every shot.  It's an honor to compete with you and against you.  Until next year! 

EAST SIDE!!!!

We always show up to play, Dick.  Even against two cities.

Why in the world is the round at 1:00?

Jesus Christ, why in the world is it at 1:00?  And why are we catering to the West?  They already have two cities in this sh1t.

Sad to say I won't be defending my title this year.  Good luck, team Roc!

Boulevard will never give money to an event. ever. (maybe one day but not in the next 5 years)


Never.  Not ever.  Not in your life or your wildest dreams.

But maybe.

Ask them to back up.  I do this all the time, especially if the peripheral distraction is on my right side, I don't know why the left side doesn't bother me as much.  Ask them every single time if they continue to do it and back off from your lie until they do.  If you go ahead and putt knowing full and well they are bugging you then it's your fault, not theirs.

This is a pet peeve of mine and I've seen so many players do this, and sadly it is sometimes players who should know better.  We all do it from time to time being distracted, but it's on you to let the person know.
