Jack, it's 3 rounds over 2 days.  Could've been 1 on Saturday, 2 on Sunday. 

Kevin, it's all on the website.  I think Ams are $55 and $50, Pros $65 (don't quote me, I'm the TD, not a memory bank...).  $25 of pro entry goes to global payout, $15 of am entry to the players pack.  I hope it's as good an event as it should be, I had offered to HELP run it, but suddenly I'm the TD.  um...yeah....

Endicott is sort of Rosedale, with a lot of Cliff Drive 1-6 thrown in.  Some pretty tight shots, a few wide open, lots of trees, somewhat crowded in places.  If you want to head there sometime, holler to me eupher61(at)hotmail.com  It's a decent hot weather course, plenty of shade most of the way through.  When it's cooler, you gotta hit Sioux Passage---not as long as BV but the hills more than make up for it.  I'm not sure if the BAC is going to happen this year, but 3 rounds at Sioux Passage, playing the B then A then C placements....yikes!

Do you live in the South County area?  I'm in Arnold, basically.   If you have any interest, get involved in the club, we need people with GOOD ideas about how things can be done.  Encouraging fun would be a huge help...

And, now that Am Worlds is over and faulty email addresses have been corrected,
[b]REGISTRATION IS OPEN for the Endicott Open/Global Disc Golf Tournament[/b]
register at

http://www.pdgasignup.com/Qstore/Qstore.cgi?CMD=011&PROD=1311694613

or you can get there through the PDGA website,  http://www.pdga.com/tour_schedule

Field is limited to 72 overall players, regardless of divisions.  Only the divisions listed elsewhere in
this thread will be opened, but anyone can play in any division for which they qualify (meaning, age restrictions and/or pro/am)  3 players required to open an eligible division.

Let's get this puppy FILLED!

I'm still working on prizes for CTP, Putting, etc competitions. 
$5 Ace Fund for the WHOLE tournament, 100% payout among all aces.  If you prefer, you can pay for the Ace Fund at sign in on the Saturday morning.

I'm hoping to have a new challenge side event on Sunday only, but no guarantees on that.  More if it develops. 
Let's have fun, and get some Kansas City names into the GLOBAL pay lists!  There are USDGC spots up for grabs, not many and they won't be easy to get.
Quote
The top 30 players among all divisions, who exceed their rating by the most in the global competition and have not yet qualified, will receive invites to compete in the 2011 USDGC.
All of that information is available at
 http://www.pdga.com/pdga-global-disc-golf-tournament

This is a first-time event of its kind, hard to say what it will become in the future.  There are talks about a similar thing for other AM catagories later, and for other variations on this theme in the future. 

Be a part of  disc golf HISTORY!

General Banter / Re: KC's Worst Hole
« on: July 26, 2011, 10:37:07 PM »
The problem with PC12 is that the city won't let the clean up and clearing happen.  It's a weak hole no matter where, mainly because luck is such a big part of getting that birdie shot.  But, with good control of the right disc, a birdie attempt is not out of the question for almost anyone.  'course, a double bogey is also not out of the question for almost anyone.  That doesn't make it a truly good hole, just one with a wide score range.  It would be interesting to see what stats come from a season of leagues, in each pin, on 12.

General Banter / Wisconsin Dells/Madison/Milwaukee
« on: July 18, 2011, 11:40:27 AM »
I'll be in The Dells area next weekend, playing gigs Sat and Sun, and spending at least Sunday night if not Monday night in the Milwaukee area.  What courses are recommended?  I haven't explored the Worlds' courses from a few years back yet, and I know of one in Baraboo.  Any suggestions/shouldn't miss/shouldn't play courses?

"it's just a turnover roc shot".

I shure didn't find that shot in my bag.  Or most others at IH.  I'd been there 3 weeks before, had a much better round.  But the crap was a lot worse Saturday than it was before.  sheesh...

August 20-21, the B-Tier Endicott Open will be part of the PDGA's Global DG Tournament. 

So far there are 15 events, including in New Zealand, Japan, and England.  There's a global payout in addition to the local payout, so you can win twice.  There's also a healthy pool of USDGC spots up for grabs.

More to come soon, but

http://www.pdga.com/pdga-global-disc-golf-tournament

has more details about how it all works.

John, and everyone else...
just to say I was glad to see only 1 beer can on the course last Friday...lots of QT cups though.  Still, that's a huge improvement!

I was hoping for the same thing...my transport will be elsewhere during the day Saturday.  A ride to Indian Hills, and possibly the chance to stash food and clothes in your car during the rounds???

I just registered, and got a campsite at Finger Lakes SP.  Playing GMasters, if anyone else signs up. 

Last time I was at AO, I got thoroughly disgusted with the courses.  Signage (my pet peeve!) did not match what was in the ground at all.  I hope it's been adjusted in the past couple of months.

Looking forward to seeing the KC crew there.  Seems like not too many from StL are going, from what I can tell so far.

OK...the newbie and CD both convinced me that Yates would be friendlier this weekend.  Dagnabit...so, we'll be at Yates at Noon.  One disc for me.   See y'all there...

I'm planning to play BV starting about noon Friday.  CD has heartily committed to playing, but something tells me we may not play the full 18.  I'll have a newbie with me, and I'd peg her for throwing about 74.  Through 3.  I'll have plenty of water...c'mon out and sweat it all off before the party weekend.

General Banter / Re: Visiting STL

I really can't believe people recommend West City in Festus so often.  It basically sucks...3 really long holes, 5 somewhat Cliff Drive like, 2 in woods over a hill, and the rest open field.  And, the Cliff Drive-like holes and the open field ones are flooded a lot of the time.  Don't waste your time on it...JB Endicott and Sioux Passage are all solid, CC is flat and long and boring as Jack said, but will challenge your straight and long game, and yes, the view across the street is amazing.  Sioux is sort of Water Works on steriods, longer with more open hills.  It plays somewhere between WW and BV.  Endicott is, as was said, a lot like Rosedale in that it's busy, but it's a more difficult course than it seems at first.  Lots of trees and tight shots, with a couple really nice open holes as well.  Nothing too long, but challenging.  It's basically Nikko's home course, since he has family just a few doors down. 
Quail Ridge is just of 64/40, just east of the 70 merge.  It's a wonderful course, they now have 3 tees marked on most holes.  The short tees are fun, but the longers are fun and a PITA.  It's so far from South County that I don't get there often, except when driving to or from KC.

Anyone who comes this way, give a holler to me.  I'm trying to play more, and succeeding for the most part.  The only 18 hole course I really don't care to play often is Creve Coeur.  JB has nooner on Sunday, Creve Coeur an open league Wednesdays, Endicott open league on Mondays, and most of the others are true leagues, not just minis.  That sort of sucks.
