Ill bet they make something that attaches to the end of a drill.

That's what I'm looking for

2 rounds
If you had a 3 round one I'd take it as well.

Can anyone provide a file or link for the player cards used in the tri-fold leader boards?

Yeah, but it would need to be the diameter of the post hole already in the ground.  Post being the metal collar that accepts the disc golf basket's pole.

Ouch.

OK, so the Centennial course has several pin placements that are filled in with dirt, pea gravel, etc not making them able to be used.  Any suggestions on how to clean them out?  It seems as though one would need a relatively close to diameter auger to clean them.

When I play more than one hour away from my house I take a duffel bag with a full change of clothes. At a minimum clean socks and shoes

Pretty excited to play in this.

This will be my first tournament.  Since I started playing this summer and haven't played the past two weeks, I haven't played in temps below 60. 

Any tips on things to know for tournaments (fairly familiar with rules and watch tons of tournament videos) and also tips for cold weather disc golf (gloves? handwarmers? how best to balance range of motion and layers for warmth)

36 and sunny doesn't sound too bad though after recent days!

Just know the basic rules like no falling puts within 10M, approx 33 feet, foot fault issues such as keeping your feet behind your disc or mini, not to the side, when throwing.  Generally the higher in the divisions the more particular the rules will be enforced.  Also, since it is a PDGA sanctioned tournament, no alcohol or drugs from the 2 minute warning before the round until after your card is turned in, for both rounds.  Lunch breaks do not apply.  Defiance beer will be provided after the second round as cards are turned in.

For weather, it kind of depends on how warm blooded you are.  I consider myself fairly typical male in that I tend to be warm.  For me, I prefer shorts to about 60, windbreaker pants to about 45, jeans below 45.  For my torso, I prefer layers with the base layer being a dri-fit wicking shirt, either short sleeve or long sleeve depending.  Second layer may also be dri-fit, then a zip hoodie and a windbreaker layer.  I would stay away from bulky winter coats.  Some where a base layer long john under their pants.  If it is cold enough to need those, I wouldn't play (unless it was a tournament I already signed up for...Frostbreaker 2014).

I keep my hair short, so I always have a cap of some sort.  Mesh baseball in summer, woolish baseball down to 40, stocking cap under 40. For gloves, I use cheap brown jersey gloves to keep my hands warm, but always remove my throwing glove when I throw.  For shoes, I wear a light Keen until 50's, warmer Keens under.  If it is snowing, then I wear an above the ankle hiking boot.

Does that cover it?

I have some ideas on the beer.  I would like to take the conversation off line with whomever is in charge.

So far, no rain or snow.

Am I understanding correctly that the historical one large Rosedale Ice Bowl is not happening?

http://kcfdc.org/forum/index.php?topic=10988.0

Or, is this dicussion in addition to the main Rosedale Ice Bowl event?

Dang weather.  Typically it still is in the 50's this time of year.

As far as basket settings go I moved a couple last weekend.  Intend to move a few more this weekend, hoping to have it 'set' by Sunday afternoon.  The problem can be though that several people move baskets at the course and they may get moved after I set them.  I have asked a couple of the players I know that do move them to not do so after Sunday and to spread the word to other players.

After this post, I'll update the placement post above with some new information.

Once the coordinator(s) are decided or volunteers, I would like to discuss the commercial beverage sponsor.

« on: November 15, 2014, 08:33:49 AM »
The problem with the old format match is that when you lose you're done. So some players are over after 10 holes.

This alternate format ensures you get to play 2 full rounds and even the third group of foursomes are still in the hunt for cash. Also this can be done in one day.

44
Yeah, it makes sense. If you get stuck playing with me you won't be mad that I drop you from first to last cash!
Yahoo! Nate gets it!

I was thinking of something not related to anything currently running like the team challenge.  Thinking of solo stuff.

I'm just throwing ideas around right now.

At first I was thinking $10 buy-in, Am's only, pay out in merch to top 24.

Then I thought of 2 groups of 32, one Ams, one Pros.  Pay out to 12 of each group, merch for Am, cash for Pros.  Maybe increasing buy in to $15 with a meager player pack, like a towel or something.

I was kind of gauging general interest.

I was also thinking of a course off the beaten path instead of the general KC Metro staples.
