This little town loves us. 

Total of 61 players came out.  Soggy conditions but no rain.  Results are here:

There will be a $5 lunch available to buy - pulled pork sandwich, chips, potato salad and bottle water.

Less than 2 weeks to Carolyn's Dirty Water Open.  This is one of my most reasonably priced events of the year.  Great way to get some tournament action.

Besides the normal trophy plaques I give away, Carolyn's Natural Soap also provided these two trophies for the top Man and Women finishers, regardless of division.  They are about 12" tall.



There will be lunch available for purchase in between rounds so you don't have to go to far to get it.

74 played in this years event including 5 juniors ages 7-13 in the junior event and 5 Senior Grandmasters (60+).

We had two aces by Greg Curtin in Recreational and Jerry Schwilling in Senior Grandmasters!

We also had a new course record set (for tournament action) by Garret Glass.  He had a 45 even with everything (but one) set long (long tee pad on 5, long normal teepad on 8, 10 was short, 12 long, 17 long.

There was also a family picnic celebrating a girl who's cancer was cured.  The park was rocking for awhile.

We had six juniors total played in this tournament, five of which played in the side event. Ages ranged from 7 to 13. 

I really appreciate the parents supporting the tournament that is trying to make something specific for the kids.  At the $12 entry fee to get two discs, along with other expenses, hopefully it was apparent I was doing this to get kids to play and not make a profit.

In conjunction with the KC Diva Spring Feeva, any female competitor that is preregistered for that event can get 50% off for the Carolyn's Dirty Water Open event if you pre-register by Wednesday May 17th.  Over is only available for players that have never played in a Maverick DG event before.  Sorry ladies, if you played in a Maverick DG event, this offer is not available.  I'm giving the offer to help the Spring Feeva (which is sold out already) and to encourage more women to play Maverick DG events and increase the women's pools.

Best way to register for the 50% off is to contact me and I can take your information personally.  Otherwise if you pre-register online, I could also refund 50% of the fee. 

Thanks,

Besides my normal plaque trophies I provide for Divisional Winners, Carolyn's Natural Soap is providing two over top score winners.  One each for men and women regardless of division.

This is the beginning of those trophies.  A base and tag will also be added.  They are about 12" tall and valued at over $40 each.

Centennial Park - Lawrence, KS / Re: signs?
« on: April 17, 2017, 10:21:20 AM »
Does anyone know why there are no signs on this course?

It's in planning stages.  Probably will be end of summer before it happens.  Meanwhile, here's a map:



The distances are so far off, it's laughable.

Some very cool things are happening in Lawrence for disc golf.

Last Saturday, 20+ people showed up to help move the old Mach IIIs from Centennial out to the Riverfront course and move the newer Mach V's to Centennial.  Our goal is within the next year to raise money for brand new baskets for the Centennial, move the Mach V's back to the river, and find a new use for the Mach IIIs.

After moving the baskets on Saturday and playing a random doubles round, a handful of people went out to Clinton State Park (on the east side of lake) to begin maping out 7 more holes to make that 11-hole course a full 18-hole course.

The Tuesday night league handled forever by Hans Coleman is on a rotating schedule between Centennial, Riverfront, Clinton Lake State Park and Poke & Hope (a private course on west side of  town) with formats of singles, doubles, Wolf, etc.

Meeting last week with the Lawrence P&R, they are finally open to making Riverfront a legit full 18-hole course.  Very, very freaking cool.  Part of their requirement for working with the players (sharing keys to locks, planting trees at Centennial, working at expanding Riverfront) is that they want an organized group.

Therefore, the league (club) will be having an election for a 7-person board on April 25.

We have our first Junior player sign up for the side junior event.  It would be great if we could get a few more kids from the KC area to join him.

Juniors Disc Golf / Atchison Aviatrix junior side event, May 6, 2017
« on: April 12, 2017, 02:19:31 PM »


Besides the regular 2 rounds of 18 hole event for the Atchison Aviatrix, there will also be a Junior II (15 & Under), III, IV and V (8 & Under) side event where they will be playing 2 rounds of 9 holes (probably back to back).

It is a PDGA B-Tier for Ams, so the juniors will get a rated round and points if that is something you are interested in.  Regarding a player pack, the juniors at the side event will get a tournament stamped DX Leopard, DX Shark or Black DX Aviar.  Additionally, the first 95 players for any division (Pro, Am, Junior big course or Junior small course) will also get an XT Atlas as part of Innova's sponsorship. 

Organized junior event, PDGA sanctioning, 1-2 discs, for $12.  I'm actually losing money on this.

To be aware, the junior 9 hole course is shorter than the normal course, but it is not 'easy'.  There is still significant elevation, some holes actually have some distance (one is 420') and OB roads surround the park.  There can also be wind depending on weather.  However, compared to the Jackson Park 18-hole course it is easier.

Think of Blue Valley in KCMO.  The junior 9 is easier, but it's not easy.  It too has significant elevation, OB sidewalks, one hole is 400', can also be very windy...pretty much like Jackson Park 9.

Here is the dgscene page for the Jackson Park 9.

Junior I (18 & Under) are invited to play in the longer 2 rounds of 18 main event.

Here is the map for the tournament.  We modify the layout for safety and flow reasons.  Original Hole 4 is skipped.  Hole 5 has a longer teepad placed farther back, and the makeup hole is 7b inbetween holes 7 and 8.  It's my understanding this hole 7b is going to become a permanent hole this summer, possibly in time for the tournament.

The 2017 Atchison Aviatrix is a EDGE Tournament Partner this year. I've committed to donate at least $120 to the EDGE program from the tournament.  Last year, the Longview Open was an EDGE Tournament Partner donating $280 to the EDGE program and some of that money came back to Kansas to help start a kids disc golf instruction club in Topeka.

You can find out more about EDGE here:

Regular PDGA C/B Tier for most divisions consisting of two rounds of 18 holes on regular course.

We are running a juniors/novice event this year. Two rounds of 9 holes on the Jackson Park 9-hole course. Very inexpensive entry of $12 for this side event.

http://dgscene.com/AtchisonAviatrix2017

Player Packs:

First 95 players to sign up (Pro, Am and Juniors) will receive an XT Atlas.

In addition, All Ams and Juniors that play the full 2 rounds 36 hole main event will also get on Innova Champion koozie and to choose one of these choices:

Champion Mamba
Champion Mako3
Champion Metal Flake Ape
Champ MF Destroyer
Champ MF Super Stingray
Pro Thunderbird
Glow champion Cobra (with Innova stamp, not tournie stamp)
Shimmer Star Rhyno
Yeti Pro Aviar

or 2 DX discs:
DX Leopard
DX Shark
Black DX Aviar

All juniors in the 1 round, 18 hole side event can choose 1 of the following:
DX Leopard
DX Shark
Black DX Aviar

Reiterate:
Pros - XT Atlas (if one of first 95)
Ams/Juniors - XT Atlas (if one of first 95) + Tournament disc (or 2 DX discs) + koozie
Juniors in side event - XT Atlas (if one of first 95) + Tournament DX disc

While the signup page shows 117 spots available, only 90 are for the main event (2 rounds of 18) and 27 are for the side event (1 round of 18 on the 9 hole course).
