Tournaments / Family Promise Fling benefit tournament Sunday 10/25/15
« on: October 04, 2015, 02:07:13 PM »

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.

Hole Settings for Atchison Aviatrix

The definite hole settings is still in flux, but this is what it is shapping up to be:

Hole 1 - Normal tee with new shortened pin, 230 ' May use longer regular pin for one round and short pin for other round. Road right is OB
 Hole 2 - Normal. Road all around is OB
 Hole 3 - Normal. Road is OB
 Hole 4 - Probably will skip it to help flow and safety
 Hole 5 - Normal. Road is OB
 Hole 6 - Normal with no mandos.
 Hole 7 - Normal. Road right is OB. After this hole you walk the path in front of you instead of to the right that would normally go to hole 8
 Hole 7b - 85% sure we are going to use this. This will be an island hole with some sort of drop zone if you do not make the island. After this hole, you walk the path/road to the right down to Hole 8.

 Hole 8 - Normal. Road is safe.
 Hole 9 - Normal. Road is a river. Both sides are safe. When you get down towards the basket and go over the road long past where it T's or Y's, over that road is OB.
 Hole 10 - Will have a shortened pin - 321'. Road OB. May use longer pin for other round.
 Hole 11 - Normal. Any road OB. Will have a Mando marked that you must stay left off to keep you off of Hole 12's fairway. DZ will be marked for missed mando.
 Hole 12 - Shortened pin that will be elevated on a tree stump. 225'. Any road OB. Same tree as Hole 11 will be a mando, must stay left of mando, DZ marked.
 Hole 13 - Alternate new pin that is more straight then right. 245'. Any road OB. Probably will have a mando right to stay off of Hole 14 fairway.
 Hole 14 - Normal Any road OB.
 Hole 15 - Normal Any road OB.
 Hole 16 - Normal Any road OB.
 Hole 17 - New pin that is longer - 354'. May use normal short pin in different round. Any road OB.
 Hole 18 - Normal, Any road OB.

All roads that are OB are 'On and Beyond' meaning if you are on the road you are OB, if you go over the road, even to grass, you are OB as you went 'beyond' the road.

In this setting - Par 55.  This layout is noticeably easier than Jackson Park Open last March.  It uses the more traditional layout of Jackson Park with the exception of removing hole 4 and adding Hole 7b for flow and safety reasons.
