Is there a minimum number who must enter in an intermediate or advanced division to trigger a merch payout?

I am already paying out 100% of entry up front.  After my costs are covered, I'll be able to go over 100% of entry.  You can count on at least a 100% payout.  Sorry, I'm not divulging what my costs are, hope you understand.

In reality, I already do this.  Kanza for example - your entry was $22.  You received a disc with retail value of $15 - $17, plus a Innova Mini Driver, retails for $4.  Don't recall what your payout was.  $10 - $12?  What you didn't see is the PDGA registration fee, PDGA per-player fee, etc., that I pay for.

So, if there is only 1 Intermediate Rec Women - it will be $20 payout.  If more than 'X', it may be more than $20 per person.  'X' has not been fully decided upon. 

Sorry if I lead on too much.  This is the first tournament where I'm not providing an upfront player pack and forwarding all of it to payouts.  Trying something different, including an across-the-board $20 Amateur entrance fee.

Less than 2 weeks away.  Inexpensive tournament, only $20 for Ams, $32 for Pros.  Juniors under 19 - $17, Juniors under 14 - $15.

McLouth has 9 new holes making a total of 18.  Varies from tight tunnels, low ceilings, right, left and wide open.  Designed by Scott Reek.

For player packs - all players will receive a bottle of all-natural, non-DEET Carolyn's Dirty Water Bug Repellent.

Juniors and Rec will receive a voucher at least equal to their entry fee to get whatever they choose.  Possibly higher vouchers if attendance is good and PDGA registration fees are covered.

Intermediate and Advance will have no player pack with 100% (or more depending on turn out) going to payouts (merchandise credit).

Pro's pay cash.

Pre-registration -

Day of registration is fine, but pre-registration really helps to get the tournament set up.

Went very well, thanks. The tournament action is not nearly as big as it is down here, but still pulled in people as far away as Fargo, ND and Sanborn, IA. Had lots of compliments and several that came back the second day.

55 on Saturday, 52 on Sunday. Had a 72 year old come out so I opened a Advanced Legends division just for him. By comparison, a C-tier was run on same course last fall and had 25 players.

Weather was great, a bit cool in the mornings, but hey, it was 350 north of here.

Another helpful tool. Use the Matrix. Find the discs you've been throwing. Slowly move up and to the left. A Valkyrie can be very useful. Held world distance record for 10 years.

I would slowly start increasing speed and stability but stay in the high 160's.


We dodged a bullet with the rain today.  It misted just a tiny little bit during second round but mostly stayed away.  I was in the park 20-25 minutes after the last player left taking care of some things.  As I drove out of the parking lot, the rain came down.

62 players total.  Thank you to everyone that came.

Congratulations to Derrick Holt with his first PDGA win, and it was in the Open Division.

It was great to see all of the juniors that came out, very cool.

Ratings are up.

Gr8 tourney; gr8 pl8, ignore the h8, m8, I r8 it 8 out of 8!

Had to read this 3 times but finally understood.

On a standard SSA course, yes 10 points typically equates to 1 stroke.

On e higher SSA course, say Blue Valley Long, 10 points is more like 1.2 to 1.4 strokes.  On an easy course, say Rosedale set short, or Swope set short on short pads, 10 point is more like 0.7 strokes.

For most courses in our area it would be about 1 stroke.

45 players have pre-registered.

Total of 7 Junior players have pre-registered which I think is super cool.


Kanza Krush Tees and OB Rules

Unless stated otherwise, all OB is OB line and beyond

Tees – Everybody uses the same designated tee box except when noted Short or Long.

Pool A – Plays all Longs. Everybody not in Pool B

Pool B – Plays all Shorts. Intermediate Women, Rec Men and Women, all Junior divisions, Adv. Sr. Grand Masters

HOLE 1 – OB sidewalk right, parking lot left.
 HOLE 2 – OB Sidewalk right.
 HOLE 3 – OB Sidewalk right
 HOLE 4 – OB Creek right, long and left.
 HOLE 5 – Creek right, sidewalk beyond basket

HOLE 6 – Short tee is where they have moved the actual triangle tee to near the tree. Long tee will be from sidewalk near where the triangle tee used to be. OB sidewalk left. Creek is casual.

HOLE 7 – OB sidewalk right, creek left.

HOLE 8 – Short is normal tee. Long is behind normal tee up hill on sidewalk near park bench. Creek is casual. Sidewalk is OB.

HOLE 9 – Playground left is OB. Hopefully will have OB line painted. Sidewalk long is OB.

HOLE 10 – Creek is casual. Sidewalk right and long is OB.
 HOLE 11 – Creek is OB left. Sidewalk right is OB
 HOLE 12 - Creek is OB left. Sidewalk right is OB
 HOLE 13 - Creek is OB left. Sidewalk right and long is OB

HOLE 14 – Long Tee is normal tee box. Short tee is Drop Zone. Creek is OB left. Sidewalk right is OB. Mando left (must be left) of tree half-way down fairway. If you miss mando on any throw, take one penalty throw and go to drop zone.

HOLE 15 – Sidewalk left is OB.

HOLE 16 – Sidewalk left is OB. Mando left (will be same mando tree as hole 14)

HOLE 17 – Long tee is normal tee. Short tee will be moved up 200-300 feet not yet designated. Sidewalk left and right is OB.

HOLE 18 – Tee for both Pools will be moved directly across sidewalk to the inside of the loop. Regular tee box will not be used. Sidewalk right and long is OB.

Basic idea behind OB and tees -

If you run along side of a sidewalk, parking lot, or creek it is OB.

If a sidewalk or parking lot is behind the basket, it is OB.

If you cross a creek, the water is casual.

The two longest holes have a shorter than normal tee for lower divisions.

Two of the shorter holes (except 1) have a temporary longer tee to make it harder.

Playground is OB for safety reasons.
