Tournaments / Maverick Disc Golf 2017 Series Driven by INNOVA
« on: December 17, 2016, 04:07:51 PM »
ADDED FREE STATE FLING at Bloomington Park, Clinton Lake, KS.

Super excited to announce a more cohesive tournament set-up for 2017. Besides normal player packs, trophies, and payouts for each individual tournament, there will also be year-end bonus payout and prizes worth $1800!

A total of $570 merchandise credit will be given away based on accumulated points for finishes at Series events. The merchandise credit will be available to both Pro and Amateur divisions and will be redeemed at INNOVA’S Pro shop ( ). The points structure will be similar to the PDGA NT Event points and listed below.

Additionally, there will be six large ticket items that will include an INNOVA DISCatcher Pro 28, the new mid-grade INNOVA basket (not yet released), an INNOVA DISCatcher Sport and a Traveler or Skillshot. There will also be two bags given, a ProtoBag (not yet released) and a HeroPack. These items will be rewarded at the end of the season via a drawing. Each tournament you play in, regardless of division, will get you one entry. The more tournaments you play, the more entries you will have.

In total, this amounts to over $1800 worth of product given by INNOVA directly to you for participating (and excelling in case of the point finishes) in tournaments that are a part of the Maverick DG Series Driven by INNOVA.


Points are awarded based on place for each division. If you play in more than one division throughout the year, your points will be added up by division and the division where you accumulated the most points will be the division available for payout. So if you mostly play Intermediate, but occasionally play Advanced Master, you retain all of your points for both divisions but are placed in the division you played in the most – Intermediate. There are no Pro or Am points, just points, as payout for all divisions is merchandise credit at the Innova Pro Shop. If you DNF – Do Not Finish a tournament, no points will be rewarded.

This was based on approximately $1 per person for select events in 2016 that at the time would carry over to the Series in 2017. Slight adjustments have already been made as to what tournaments were selected to be in the Series and what wasn’t.

Most divisions will have their own payout structure. For some divisions that have historically lower turnout, multiple divisions will be combined for the additional payout. For example, Pro Women and all Pro Divisions outside of Open are in one BONUS payout division. Each are rewarded their own points, (First place in their own division gets 100 points, Second place gets 95, etc.) however all players for those divisions will be combined and the top point winner will get the First Place payout, second point winner will get the Second Place payout, etc. This would also apply to all Groupings as described below.

Each tournament you play, regardless of division, gets you one entry into the year-end drawing. Simple as that. Plan on picking up the large ticket items in Lawrence, KS. A case by case compromise can be made on alternate plans for delivery for those that cannot pick up in Lawrence, KS. We can work that out when the time comes.  If you live in the Kansas City metro, I work in Overland Park and we can work out a way to get the item to you.

Barter Town / Lots of homebrew equipment
« on: December 10, 2016, 10:54:30 PM »
I homebrewed my own beer for 25 years from 1990 - 2015.  I've finally decided to give it up.  I have a ton of stuff for sale, primarily centered around brewing 10-12 gallon batches.  If you are interested, I have it listed on Lawrence Brewers' Guild facebook page.


Two rounds of 18 holes at Centennial Park in Lawrence, KS.  Grip Equipment is the presenting sponsor providing bags for the Ace Fund.  The revenue generated from this ace fund is being used to pay for a portable restroom, park fees and an added item that all (Pro and Am) will receive.  Please consider participating in the Ace Fund.

INNOVA Champion Discs is the disc sponsor. 

Yankee Tank Brewing is providing Qty 3, 1/6 Barrels of beer for free to players of legal drinking age after the second round is completed. 

Non-PDGA fee for those that are not current - $10
DAY OF Registration fee - $3.  (This is waived if you pre-register)

Registration is open and the tournament is already 40% full.  Because day of registration is becoming problematic, a $3 Day Of fee is being implemented for the purpose to encourage people to pre-register online prior to the closing of registration which is usually 5:30 - 6pm the night before.


Innova Discs that were ordered:

Player Pack Discs:
Champion Wraith
Champion Roc3
Black Champion Thunderbird
Champion Metal Flake Ape
Champion Metal Flake Colossus
Champion Metal Flake Leopard
Champion Metal Flake Teedevil
Champion Metal Flake Teebird
Shimmer Star Rhyno

Other discs available for purchase:
Champion Glow Destroyer (stiffer, not gummy this time)
Champion Glow Gazelle
Champion Glow Roc3
Champion Glow Valkyrie
Champion Colored Glow Gator
Champion Colored Glow Tern
Champion colored Glow Whale

There will be a Win Your Card, Win a Prize for the second round.  Undecided what it is yet, but probably something like a Sportsack or similar value.

Tournaments / Raymore Rumble Presented by INNOVA 10/1/16
« on: August 25, 2016, 09:14:16 AM »

This will be the first PDGA Sanctioned tournament at Recreation Park in Raymore, MO. 

Registration is open:

PDGA C PRO / B AM TIER Tournament.

Pro is 100% payout after PDGA fees.

Am Player Pack for those that sign up prior to September 18 will be:

- Innova Premium Disc (last two tournaments were the Mystere and the Savant. Rumor is this one will be the Gargoyle)
 - Innova cotton t-shirt
 - Innova mesh hat
 - mini, sticker, pencil

You also have the option of foregoing the player pack for a $15 discount if you sign up before 9/18.

After 9/18, the 'No Player Pack' option will not be available, and the above player pack will not be available as I have to order them two weeks prior.  Instead, the PP will be an Innova disc of some sort (not determined yet but not the exclusive tournament disc above) and a shirt from current stock (i.e. size not guaranteed).

Leagues / Clean up events from front page
« on: July 26, 2016, 01:12:49 PM »
Maybe it's time to clean up events from front page.  For example - Wandering Wednesdays is no longer running.

Limestone Classic in Cottonwood Falls, KS.  CF, KS is about 15 miles west of Emporia.  This course was designed by Eric McCabe and will be the first PDGA sanctioned tournament at the 'other' Swope Park.



Dynamic Discs
Walnut River Brewing Company
Chase Disc Golf

Lunch will be available for purchase on site by Southfork Smokeshack.

Free beer will be provided after last round by Walnut River to those of legal age.  Bring an ID.

While this doesn't solve all of the problems with the various World Championship invitation process, it does take steps towards a better process.

Tournaments / Atchison Aviatrix, 6/18/16 C/B-Tier, Atchison, KS
« on: May 29, 2016, 08:47:50 PM »

Next Maverick DG tournament is the Atchison Aviatrix on June 18.

For early registrants that register before June 6 at 6 AM, (One week away) the Am player pack will be:
Innova Champion Savant - only released via tournaments (or you can swop for one of the discs listed below)
Innova cotton t-shirt
Innova mesh baseball cap
Mini, stickers, etc.

For all other Amateur players that register after 6 am June 6 or the day of, the player pack will be
Innova Pro plastic disc (R-Pro Boss, Pro Destroyer, Pro JK Aviar)

Registration link:

Same ranger that installed the Longview Course at Perry Lake is installing a new course at Bloomington Park on the west side of Clinton Lake west of Lawrence.  Technically, this is Clinton, KS.  Kent Bryan helped lay out the course itself.

Should be open mid-summer?

Tee pads have been poured. Some clearing has been done. This course is more open and less maintenance then Longview is. Very nice tee pads. From what I could tell, some wooded holes, some wide open holes, good use of elevation. Easily accessible to other park features like camping, etc., so I think it will be used more by people just getting into the game.

From what I can tell, several holes will be in this area.  I'm certain the grass will be mowed down. 

Carolyn's Dirty Water Open at Rose Park in McLouth, KS on May 28, 2016.

The work crews out at Rose Park have done quite a bit of work on the back holes around the pond.  It will be noticeably better than it was last year when it was only 6 weeks old at tournament time.

This will be a ratings based tournament similiar to the Big Blue Monster last fall.

Registration is open.  Tournament flyer will be posted soon.

All divisions are $25. 

Gold division is Pro - Open and will pay as Cash or Merchandise credit for those that want to retain Am status.

Rest of divisions pays as merchandise.
All ams will receive a Gateway disc (various molds will be available).

Purle division (<800 Rating) will receive a bonus pack item with no additional payout.

In the registration process, if there is not a division open that you would like to see open, let me know, and I'll open it.  However, if a minimum of 4 participants are not in the division, there is a 90% likelihood it will be condensed down to the next appropriate division.

$5 - Dynamic Discs Ace / CTP fund:
Instead of a cash payout, a DD Ranger Bag will be given for the Ace Fund. If no ace is hit, a CTP will be done after second round to determine winner. If more than 1 ace, then only those players will do CTP.  When 41 players opt for Fund, a second bag will be given.

More information will be provided later regarding player pack, any modified layouts, etc.  As we did last year, the tee boxes will be expanded to allow players to use the small triangle concrete markers, or the grass to the side.

Player Pack for all Ams. Disc selections will be announced later after Innova order confirmation.

There will be a CTP or Win your Card, Win a Prize. Prize item yet to be determined.

There used to be 2 very 'meh' 9 hole courses at Clinton Lake State Park Lawrence KS.  They were pulled due to baskets being stolen.  A new 11-hole course with defined fairways that combine the best of the previous 2 has been reinstalled.  The flow is a lot different and I was very glad to see it put back.  It is a ton better.  I would recommend giving it a try this winter.  it does cost to get into Kansas State Parks.
