Ive posted about these two discs to no avail already. IM NOW OFFERING A REWARD AND DISC SWAP.  Unfortunately both have my old telephone number inked on them. Both are champion teebirds, one  light blue, the other red, with the superman symbol dye in center.  New telephone # is 816 520 1048. Sentimental discs not only because of the dye but my daughter and nephew play with them when we go out. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks

advanced? So we CAN slow down play? Plus its not very enjoyable getting your &%$ handed to you and finishing at the very bottom of the leader board.  Of course it would pad their pockets as well.

"I agree that one day makes everyone in the C tier feel pushed aside and it stops feeling like anything special"
My sediments exactly Chris. other rec players ive talked to echo our opinion. thank you.

I dont recall hearing anyone complain about 2days/3 rounds being too much. If anything its the contrary. Plus, if thats the case they can register to any of the myriad of other tournaments offered all throughout the year. We, just like you, enjoy and eagerly anticipate the opportunity to play in a special, unique, big tourney that strays from the norm.

"As for the C-Tier, the third one day event is for Non-PDGA members the chance to play on courses used for the Wide Open and not being "forced" to join the PDGA, but pay the daily fee.  It is really for Intermediate/Jr/Rec players.....  This should enable locals or guests traveling a chance to play here in KC and enjoy the event albeit for one day, and still participate accordingly."

I would like to voice the opinion of myself and some of the newer players. To clarify, novice, rec, and intermediate will only be playing two rounds/one day this year? If so thats kind of a bummer. Im a newer player and have only played four tournies. My first being the wide open last year. In retrospect the allure and the fond memories are from experiencing the 'big tournement feel'. This being the events leading up and during rounds, the amount of people, pros present, AND most importantly the chance to play a tourny in excess of two rounds/one day. Two rounds/one day drastically takes away from the appeal and unique format that comprise a big tourny. How would the pros/advanced etc players feel if the kcwo was suddenly changed to a two round/one day event?
Is this really being done due to speed of play? I played novice last year and honestly dont recall anyone waiting on us to finish holes to tee off. If i remember correctly novice, rec and intermediate were grouped together and played separate courses on separate days/times than everyone else.....
I was really looking forward to playing in the wide open this year untill i saw some of the posts regarding the revised format. Its been condensed into a 'regular' tournament for us newer/less skilled players to accomidate the better players and perhaps make arranging a tournament easier..... I personally dont have the resources to travel hours to play in another big event to replicate the feeling of a big tourny.
correct me if im wrong but we try to introduce as many people to our sport and give them incentive to stay with the sport to watch it grow. this change in format only makes us/them feel slighted.

could you put me down for the wyco and rosedale tournaments before its too late? if you remember i called last week about the frostbreaker after registration was closed. my work schedule varies and its hard to commit. my boss assures me that i can have off for these two event. i can make it into the DD store this weekend to pay for the two entries into the recreational divison.
