I've been getting a lot of questions about the Saturday vs. Sunday Wrangle in the Woods.

They are two separate tournaments.

You don't have to play in one in order to play in the other.  Play only Saturday or only Sunday or both.

Saturday is 2 rounds set to medium length.  It is a B-Tier.  Higher costs, larger player pack, higher payouts.

Sunday is 1 round set to maximum length.  Lower costs, lower payouts.  Player 'pack' is for Rec and Jrs. only in the form of a voucher for you to choose what you want.  All other divisions are payouts based on 100% of net.

Sunday will have common PDGA divisions, such as Open, Advanced, Intermediate, Recreational.  These four divisions will be open no matter what.  Juniors and Women divisions will open up for 1 or more players.  All other divisions (Pro Masters, Advanced Masters, Advanced GM) will need a minimum of 3 to open the division.  In the registration process, all divisions are currently open, but if not enough are open they may be collapsed to a least common denominator division (which is the same for all tournaments really).

$17 Pro divisions
$16 Am divisions

You do not need to pre-register, but it is always appreciated and will make the morning go smoother.  Pre-registration is here:

Player registration at 9:30 AM.  Player meeting at 10 AM.  Meet at Hog Holler Saloon. 

Pre-registration is half full. 

Registration is picking up for Wrangle in the Woods presented by Hyzerbomb Discs . Had 13 players register in last 30 hours.  Approaching half full quickly. 

Weather is going to be fantastic.  Great course, great lunch special available, larger than normal Am player pack due to B-Tier, $500 added cash to pro divisions.

And if you can't get enough disc golf, spend the night in the campground and play another C-tier one rounder set long the next morning.

To save time. Not an all day event. Thornfield does the same format, one rd in the morning and done by noon.

It never was going to be flex. Hopefully I didn't lead you to believe that it would be.

Family Promise Fling will be a one rounder somewhat casual tournament to raise money and awareness for Family Promise of Lawrence.  Family Promise is an organization that specifically helps homeless families (i.e. at least one child with one adult) to find safe housing, food, assistance and recovery back into more permanent housing. 

Mission Statement:

Our mission is to transform the lives of homeless children and their families by providing safe shelter, food, counseling, and training in partnership with local communities of faith through hospitality and daily living support in a compassionate setting.  The program is designed to address the needs of families and equip them to move into permanent housing as quickly as possible.

Cost is $20 for three available divisions: Experienced, Intermediate, Beginner.  Player pack will be one Innova DX disc, plus beer for those of legal age donated by Yankee Tank Brewing based in Lawrence, KS.  There will be other small payouts, and raffles for a basket, bags, etc.

Pre-registration is not required by greatly appreciated:

Oh, there will be more than 90 players.  Last year I was on a card of 6 first round, and 5 second round.


I had a question this morning about added cash. After communicating with the PDGA Tour Manager, found out it is HIGHLY discouraged to limit added cash to just the MPO and FPO divisions. So, I will align with how they strongly encourage added cash to be split.

The $500 added cash will be made regardless of how many Pros enter. In other words, if only 1 pro enters, they will receive the full $500 added cash.

In order to have a Pro division created beyond MPO, there will need to be a minimum of 4 for the division with the exception of FPO.  FPO field will open with 1 or 2 players.  After MPO and FPO, if a minimum of four players are not in a division, they will be collapsed to the next closest division.

The added $500 cash is after Net Entry. Of the $53 pro entry, $3 goes to the PDGA (for B-Tiers), leaving $50 towards payout per player + $500 added cash divided by per player per division.

It's more of an issue of the baskets being in the direct path of the longer placement...

I will probably pull the blue baskets in the way early in the morning and put them back in the evening.

To save your back, you could just put black garbage bags over the ones not being used.

Added flyer to above posting.

There will be a $2 to $3 Ace Fund.  The Junior course does have ace opportunities.  James Thompson hit one during PDGA league this year with a putter.  If no ace is hit, the fund will be split up by division and will have a throw off per division.  All payouts for ace fund / ctp will be merchandise credit for Pro or Am.

This Saturday, 9/26, entrance to Kansas State Parks is free. Good time to go to Eisenhower and get some practice rounds in.

For each tournament I send one email to previous players that have provided an email. If you wish to be on that mailing list send me a Private Message with your email address and I'll add you to the list. I do keep separate lists for KS/MO based tournaments and northern (SD/NE/IA) based tournaments.

This one was sent last night as an example:


(If you are new to this email that I do, I will only send one email per tournament that is coming up next. If you wish to not receive these, please let me know and I'll remove you from my list.)

First fall tournament - Atchison Aviatrix - down. Five more to go.

The next one up is on October 3, 2015 titled I Like Sp'Ike at Eisenhower State Park. The state park is located on Melvern Lake which is 16 miles SE of Osage City, KS; 33 miles NE of Emporia, KS or 42 miles straight south of Topeka, KS.

This is a C-Tier playing two rounds of 18 holes. If you are not familiar with Eisenhower SP DGC this website will give you lots of information about it:

Registration ranges from $15 for juniors to $42 for Pro Open. You can register here:

The Ace / CTP fund will be a Innova Sports and/or Traverl basket. Multiple baskets will be given away if there are enough entries in the fund. Complete rules can be found here:…/I_Like_SpIke_2015/comments

Please be aware, as Eisenhower is a Kansas State Park, they do have daily use fees. There are also camping opportunities for tents, RVs, cabins and even YURTS. Since this is after October 1st, the "Off-Season" fee schedule applies. Tent camping is as low as $7. Three-utility RV camping is $19. More detailed information for this is found here:


I'll be staying the night at the park Friday night and I really like playing glow golf. So - we're doing a Friday Night Glow on October 2nd. Check in for glow will start about 6:30 and we'll start playing about 7:30 or so. Cost will be $6. One dollar will go towards expenses (lights for baskets), the remaining will got towards payouts; cash for pro, credit for amateurs.

Since we are having a glow round, all glow discs will be on sale Friday night only. As an example of sale prices:
•Colored glow Innova Champion - normally $20, on sale for $15.
•Standard glow Innova Champion and Discraft Z Glow- normally $18-$19, on sale for $14. This will include the I Like Sp'Ike glow discs.
•All other glow discs (KC Rocs, KC Aviars, X-outs) will be $2 off.

This sale on glow discs will be Friday night only, October 2nd, at Eisenhower State Park only.

It has been at least three years since a PDGA sanctioned event has been held at Eisenhower State Park. I hope you can make it out.
