The Series Raffle Numbers and Points have been updated. Three pages total. On top of each page is a brief explanation.

Wow, what a windy day.  Monday morning and my face still feels weather worn. 

Results are here:

Nova wrote a blurb on her public page about the event.  Here is part of it.

The wind was HOWLING, 20-25 MPH steady with gusts to over 30 and even 40 by the end of the second round. Putts from outside the circle were simply out of the question, and any disc which showed its underside to the wind would promptly blow away, often traveling further to the side than it had forward.

Honestly, I could have left almost all of my discs at home, as every hole was played with a sequence of either a bonkers overstable driver for headwinds or a paper-plate flippy driver for tailwinds, followed by a Harp, and then a putter. (And more often than not, the putter was for dropping or tapping into the basket, as putts from outside the circle were simply out of the question.)

After the first round, there was a three-way tie for the lead among myself, Cynthia Ricciotti, and Kim Giannola. In the second round the wind was blowing even harder than the first round. Still, I used what I had learned about the wind and went for some longer putts at the fringes of the circle, sometimes with success, and in any case always making the come-backer if I did not. I think I tried this about 9-10 times, and converted 3-4, which happened to be the margin of victory.

Every exposed part of my body is parched from being in the grip of gale-force and bone-dry winds all day long. My hands, face, and even my legs from ankles to knees are dry like tissue paper.

Good times!


In all cases, the creek running through the course is OB with the exception of hole 6, 8, 10 where you throw across the creek. Then it is casual.

In all cases the sidewalk is OB, even when you are teeing off of the sidewalk. What this means is, if your disc never crosses the vertical plane to make it in bounds, the last place you were in bounds is the tee area. So, you are reteeing as a 3 (or 5, 7, etc.)

There is a mando on holes 14 & 16. They will be marked with a drop zone next to them. In both cases you must be to the left of the mando. If you go to the right, proceed to the drop zone for missing the mando with a one stroke penalty. On hole 14, since the creek left is OB, and the tree right is mando, it does make for a fairly narrow gap. Of course you can go over the OB line as long as you come back inbounds.

Rob can correct me, but I believe the I Like Sp'Ike tournament is not happening, but on the same day Rob will be hosting the Free State Fling at the new course at Clinton Lake, Bloomington Park.

Yep, it's true

Tournament is full.  A wait list has started.  There are two wait lists specific to each Pool.

Registration for the next tournament, Longview Open, is open.

Saturday (Intermediate, Recreational, Junior):

Sunday: (Pro, Advanced):

24 spots left.  18 spots for the Long Pad Pool, 6 spots for the Short Pad Pool.

The cutoff for Early Registration that will receive the larger player pack has been moved up to Wednesday, Feb. 15.

ADDED FREE STATE FLING at Bloomington Park, Clinton Lake, KS.

It probably would be ok, but if the other day is full, then you wouldn't be able too?


This year for the Longview Open, we are moving the divisions around a bit.  Intermediate, Rec and Juniors will play on Saturday with a medium layout, Pro and Advanced divisions will play on Sunday with a longer layout.

Registration opens up February 3rd at 4pm.

Saturday registration:

Sunday registration:

This event is a part of the Maverick Disc Golf 2017 Series Driven by INNOVA.  There will be a total of $1800 worth of additional vouchers and merchandise at the end of the season.  Some of it is awarded on performance and some of it will be awarded as a free random drawing for those that participate.  Either way, the more you play, the better your chances at the extra stuff.  More information can be found here:

Few updates:

First, Maverick DG is renting a portable toilet for this event. Kanza Park does not have a toilet on site until Memorial Day, so we are renting one for the day.

Second, the tournament is 1/3 full. Reminder - this event does have different tee pads for different divisions. To ensure you get an appropriate tee pad pool, sign up earlier vs. later. Plus, if you sign up before Feb. 19 Ams will get a larger player pack and Pros can choose to get the player pack if they want.

For all events in 2017, there will be a $3 late registration fee to register after on-line registrations closes (presuming there are still spots open).


updated flyer


Registration opens up for the Kanza Krush '17 Presented by Innova Discs Wednesday morning, Jan. 4th.

We will be using two sets of tees. Long tees will be used for all Pro divisions, All Advanced divisions (except Adv. Master Women if there are enough), and Intermediate men. Short tees will be used for Adv. Master Women, Intermediate Women, all Recreational divisions and all Junior divisions.

For those that register early (by Feb. 19), there will be a bonus player pack consisting of an Innova premimum disc, Innova beanie, 2017 disc golf calendar, DewFly towel, sticker sheet and pencil. This is available for all amateurs, and for pros as well (for an extra $20) if you register early. Additionally, if you want to, you can add a long sleeve shirt for an additional $7.50 OR a hoodie for an additional $20. This is also available to pros that opt to purchase a player pack (but not to pros that don't opt to purchase a player pack).

The large player pack is only available for paid early registrations.  After early registration closes, the player pack will be a premium disc and some other item not yet determined.

Finally, because registering after on-line registration closes is so problematic, for all tournaments going forward there will be a $3 additional charge to register after online closes including day of walk ups (if there is room).

(hey, doesn't that guy on the right look like Waldron?)
