Tournaments / Re: 2015 Ice Bowl

$5 for mulligans which won't really help my game...or $5 for beer that is really freakin' good.

Let me think about that for awhile.

OK - I'll take the beer for $5.  Actually I'll take two of them for $5.  I'll probably even take four of them for $10.


In all seriousness guys, this is my perspective.  While I haven't been an Ice Bowl diehard since the 90's, I have attended three previous ones.  Three years ago (2012), we ran out of free beer.  Two years ago (2013), we ran out of free beer before the lunch was even over.  Last year, we ran out of free beer.  Last year (2014) when I staffed the tap the entire time, I'm quite certain there were people getting free beer that didn't even pay to play...i.e. they didn't even buy an Ice Bowl package.

I like free stuff, but as Jack pointed out, the purpose of this event is not to have our fill of free beer, it is to raise money for charity.  As we, the club collectively decide to raise the bar higher and higher for the amount raised, creative ways will come forward to do so. 

And yes, I do know that their was underage drinking.  NOBODY wants to be the one to speak with the police when it becomes an issue if we as a club do not at least attempt to control it.

Come out, have fun, bring a $5 bill with you. 

If you really feel that strongly about it, you are able to bring your own.  For the last three years, free beer has been a bonus and not a promise.

The Titan is a great basket.

The new Discmania Lite looks interesting.

Regarding their clothing I've noticed some items they do one production run, then wait awhile, then do another production run.

as info, unless you have keys (only people I know to have keys is the Topeka club as it is a Topeka course), the baskets are static.

They can't split one divsion into more pools without significantly adding more work.  As in having Intermediate span more than 1 pool.  In order to do so, they would then have to do a shuffle, but that becomes a cluster for a 3-day tournament and usually reserved for Worlds, etc.

Most players who sign up for Intermediate could probably sign up for another, albeit not preferred, division such as Rec, Adv., Adv Master, etc.

Personally, I signed up for Rec because it had both of my favorite Emporia courses - Peter Pan and Country Club.

Current registration is at 712.  That is about 150 more than last year, and it is 5 months away.  Tulsa Masters was 1 week before GBO last year.

It fills at 900.  I would not wait if you want to play.

In case readers didn't notice, players pools were recently adjusted. Please sign up in your wanted divisions before they fill again.

Just in case it wasn't noticed, GBO's women divisions have been expanded. Please sign up before they fill again.

I am actually looking forward to them.

I'm also looking forward to when they have strollers a la Go Cart.

Seriously, DD is like the Borg with personality.  They will assimiliate everything and anything.

I'm not jabbing - it's just kind of a weird awesome thing going on.

Clothing - check
Discs - check
Bags - check
Shoes - check
Shorts - check
Coolers - check
Baskets - check

Beer - WHAT!  No Dynamic Discs beer yet? 

OMG - I got to get on this and make some DD beer.
