You could play Adv. on Sat, Open on Sunday.

Although your rating says you can play FA3.  Then playing FPO would simply be, 'I'm playing open because I feel like donating my money to another player in exchange for two rounds of disc golf eductation'

Which reminds me, the Longview Open is a partner of the E.D.G.E. - Educational Disc Golf Experience.  $1 of all entry fees is being matched by Maverick Disc Golf and donated to the EDGE program.

Innova released the Makani.  This was the free disc that all players, Pro and Am received at the Kanza Krush.  This ad sent to dealers is the first public notice I've seen about it.  I'm fairly certain we were the first ones to get it (although not 100% positive of that).  I requested a disc to give away that was different than the normal golf disc and this is what they provided.

As a reminder / plug, the Longview Open presented by Innova Discs will also have a "Event Exclusive Premium Golf Disc" with the player pack. Pro players do have an option of purchasing a player pack during check out.

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.

Registration is here:

First four tournaments in our area have fillled this year (Frostbreaker, Kanza Krush, Rosedale Cup, Kan-U-Wyco). 

You may want to consider signing up earlier than later for this one.

If you want to be guaranteed your shirt size, you need to register prior (i.e. not on the day itself) to Monday, March 28th.  I will be placing my order for exact shirt sizes early that morning.

129
Tournament is full.  You can sign up via registration to be placed on the waiting list.  If you don't get in, you will receive a full refund less a $1.34 fee that dgscene charges.  If anyone cancels, I will back fill from paid waiting list first.

First one to sign up  ;D

14 signed up in last 24 hours. 23 spots available. Currently that breaks down to 13 left in 'Long Tees' pool and 10 left in 'Short Tees' pool.

9 days until Kanza Krush.  I'll have the temporary tee areas painted Friday, 3/4.

Sign up by Thursday, March 3rd to get the bonus catch disc - available to both Pros and Ams.

Good to know! Disc Golf Course review just says Blue Valley KS so I never knew, ha.

The sign at the course calls it Blue Valley.  It's in Kansas.

Oswego Overlook is no way near a B+.  Nope.  I've played it. I've also played 144 courses in 17 states and it's not even a B-.  C+ is pushing it.

The layout will be the same as last year.  I'll get the flags and alternate tee areas painted Friday afternoon before so the flags don't get pulled up by kids, etc.

Regarding how the set up will be:

In all cases, the creek running through the course is OB with the exception of hole 6, 8, 10 where you throw across the creek.  Then it is casual.

In all cases the sidewalk is OB, even when you are teeing off of the sidewalk.  What this means is, if your disc never crosses the vertical plane to make it in bounds, the last place you were in bounds is the tee area.  So, you are reteeing as a 3 (or 5, 7, etc.)

There is a mando on holes 14 & 16.  They will be marked with a drop zone next to them.  In both cases you must be to the left of the mando.  If you go to the right, proceed to the drop zone for missing the mando with a one stroke penalty.  On hole 14, since the creek left is OB, and the tree right is mando, it does make for a fairly narrow gap.  Of course you can go over the OB line as long as you come back inbounds.


1 - 5 Both use regular pad
6 - Regular pad is the short pad.  Long pad is the sidewalk currently marked with a green line.
7 - Both use regular pad
8 - Regular pad is the short pad.  Long pad is the sidewalk currently marked with a green line.
9 - 10 Both use regular pad
11 - Both will use green line painted on sidewalk.  It's a safer tee area and only 15' difference.
12 - 13 Both use regular pad
14 - Long pad is the regular tee area (989').  Short pad is the Drop Zone which is up by the pair of trees (379')
15 - Basket is broken.  I've asked the P&R to fix it.  If it is not fixed by Friday before, we will bag it and use a temporary basket about 30' farther and a tad to the left of the original basket.
16 - Both use regular pad
17 - Long pad is the regular tee area.  Short pad is the bicycle / walking path to the right of the fairway.  It was marked with green paint.  This is the sidewalk towards the industrial buidlings, not the walking path that winds through the park. 
18 - Both will tee off sidewalk immediately to the left of the normal tee area - marked with green paint.  It is a safer tee area.
