If I had to go with just one per category it would be this.  Otherwise, besides my putter, I carry an understable, stable, and overstable for each category and they are usually different molds.

Putter - Innova Yeti Aviar 175
Mid - Dynamic Discs Truth 175
Fairway - Innova Echo Star Teebird 170
Driver - Innova extra gummy Glow Champion Destroyer 168

The (Topeka) club will be having a workday April 16th for the Clinton lake course in the Bloomington Park area. We Will meet at the Lake Shawnee disc golf parking lot at 8:30 so we can be at the course around 9:00 to work. We will need chainsaws, rakes and if anybody has a pole saw, work gloves and boots. We will be cleaning up holes that are close to being done and removing trees from holes that need cleared. I would love to see the number of workers to be many so we can get this course completed and in the ground so we can enjoy our work. Any questions can be directed to me Kent Bryan at 785-249-0803 or post on this page and I will try to address issues. If you don't have the tools come any way we need the man power or directions if you can't make it at 9:00. Thanks Kent dawn to dusk disc club pres.

As info, the dates listed do not conform to 6 week minimum, or 10 week maximum for sanctioned leagues.  The last two sections of this page link provides the parameters.

If this is anywhere near as good as Longview I can't wait.

I think it may be a bit tamer than Longview from what I could tell. Although it is vey very early in process.

I was told the baskets will be powder coated Mach IIIs

Same ranger that installed the Longview Course at Perry Lake is installing a new course at Bloomington Park on the west side of Clinton Lake west of Lawrence.  Technically, this is Clinton, KS.  Kent Bryan helped lay out the course itself.

Should be open mid-summer?

Tee pads have been poured. Some clearing has been done. This course is more open and less maintenance then Longview is. Very nice tee pads. From what I could tell, some wooded holes, some wide open holes, good use of elevation. Easily accessible to other park features like camping, etc., so I think it will be used more by people just getting into the game.





From what I can tell, several holes will be in this area.  I'm certain the grass will be mowed down.

I'm super stoked that Selinske Masters and AM Worlds are so close for 2017.

I do find it very interesting pick for AM Worlds though.  I do think Chase Roberts and crew will do a wonderful job hosting.  I am surprised though with 2016 in Madison, WI, the next location of Davenport/Moline IA/IL is very close.  If I was a west, east or south coast player, I would be disappointed that it seems like it is stuck in the midwest.

2013 - Emporia, KS
2014 - St. Paul, MN
2015 - Kalamazoo, MI
2016 - Madison, WI
2017 - Quad Cities IA/IL.

Last time it was anywhere close to the west coast was 2005 in Flagstaff, AZ and then before that 1994 in Sacramento, CA.

But, I'm not disappointed.  :)

Tournaments / Re: 1 rounder at Olpe City Lake on March 19

Capital City Classic in Topeka, KS same day.

And?

Parks always been there. Tourney hasn't though of lately.

Be @OLPE or be afraid...

Well Doug, I wasn't afraid to play Olpe.  But then DD decided to change the schedule and let the Adv. Masters only play courses that have 'always been there'.  At least for Capital City Classic the Shunga course - a temporary course only open 2-3 weeks per year - will be available to all players.

So, play a sanctioned tournament on 2 special courses - Crestview Gold and Shunga temporary course - or play a course that will be there next month and not available to Pool F? 

Thanks for the invitation, but I'll head to Topeka.  I do appreciate it though.

I ordered Yeti Aviars for vending. Not part of player pack.

There are some photos here:

You could play Adv. on Sat, Open on Sunday.

Although your rating says you can play FA3.  Then playing FPO would simply be, 'I'm playing open because I feel like donating my money to another player in exchange for two rounds of disc golf eductation'

Which reminds me, the Longview Open is a partner of the E.D.G.E. - Educational Disc Golf Experience.  $1 of all entry fees is being matched by Maverick Disc Golf and donated to the EDGE program.

Innova released the Makani.  This was the free disc that all players, Pro and Am received at the Kanza Krush.  This ad sent to dealers is the first public notice I've seen about it.  I'm fairly certain we were the first ones to get it (although not 100% positive of that).  I requested a disc to give away that was different than the normal golf disc and this is what they provided.

As a reminder / plug, the Longview Open presented by Innova Discs will also have a "Event Exclusive Premium Golf Disc" with the player pack. Pro players do have an option of purchasing a player pack during check out.
