OK, we're just going to finalize this now because I'm thinking Doug is probably sleeping as he's a 3rd shifter.

Harmon Park at 9:30 AM
Blue Valley KCMO at 1pm.  Big Boy course.

$1/Ace.  Ace pool at $212 I think.  2015 Tags all in.  2016 tags optional.

I was actually thinking Harmon Park in the AM, BV in the afternoon.  BRC is a bit of a stretch for me on Friday.

Harold is working and Jeff is sick (?).

I offered to run it this week.

Considering Blue Valley MO with showmeDoug's new settings.  Once it is confirmed where the settings are and playability, I'll make the final call.  Hopefully by Thursday mid-afternoon.

It may just be one afternoon round.  Or, we may actually travel between rounds. 

I'll post more later.

DK, not the Dead Kennedys, but Doug Keehler, will you confirm settings in the Big Blue Pin Placements thread?

Thanks,

The Belgians did surprise me a bit, but really, this category is super vague.

I am doing this for a little research with my ongoing Yankee Tank affiliation.  However, I'm sure this information would be helpful to all TD's that get beer sponsors, such as KCWO, Disc Golf Day, Ice Bowl, etc.

With these numbers (which I'm not surprised with at all), I have some useful information to share with my brewer.  However, I think the results are also skewed by the people that read this type of thing.

Such as, posts on here about 'carry in, carry out', are fine and all, but the actual person that litters, probably isn't going to read a forum on KC disc golf.  The typical one-disc hucker that is out for a nice stroll in the park, probably doesn't care what kind of beer it is, as long as it's drinkable.

But, I'm not planning on one disc huckers coming to a tournament either.

This  poll can be interpreted however way you want.  During the round, after the round, inbetween the rounds, free, not free, whatever.

Just curious what disc golfers prefer to drink.

I think that maybe my view on beer may skew what I think other disc golfers drink, so I'm curious on what you actually prefer.  This could be good information not only for the events I run, but also for those that help with Disc Golf Day, Ice Bowl, KCWO, etc.

Prost!

Long time ago, in a state far, far away... I used to run road races.  10K, 1/2 Marathons, etc.  My beer gut may not suggest it but I actually went to Iowa State Championship in cross country.  Wow, that was more than a half life ago.  Anyway, the 'player pack' for non-school events was a t-shirt.  Really good ones were a pair of running shorts.  That's it.

However, the Am Payout is so ingrained into our current DG tournament scene, that it isn't going to change.  Just because it doesn't happen in other Am sports doesn't mean that it is a bad thing for this sport.  The PP and payout was one of the significant reasons why I started to play tournaments.  Now that I have more plastic than I can use, I now would enter a $10 tournament with no PP, no payouts, just awards.  As a TD, if I tried that now, I would get maybe 5 people to come.  If anyone is so willing to try it, I'm specifically talking about a PDGA sanctioned event.  Not a mini/league where I pay $10 and don't get anything tangible, not even a rated round.

I get what Dick is saying.  I actually agree with it to a point.  It's just not going to happen within the next 5 years.
