There have been cyclocross races at Wyco a few times in the past several years.  The only thing that could be considered damage from those events was the matted down grass from all the riders doing multiple laps of the riding course they defined.  Nothing that didn't just repair itself.  :)

Almost any combination of courses that doesn't include Swope would get a thumbs up here.

Are we doing shotgun starts or tee times?  I can't seem to find that anywhere.  Thanks.
Greg I am pretty sire it is all tee times all weekend long.

yes, it is tee times every round. With the first card going out at 8:00am each day.  Although scheduling might get dicey if there are combined rain delays greater than 3 hours any particular day.  Hopefully any storms that hit blow through quickly.

I have one ticket for Go Ape Treetop Adventures ($62.77 value, not redeemable for merch, food or cash) from the players pack of the KCWO perf flight.  My wife and son aren't the thrill seeking type, so I won't be using it.

First to request the ticket can have it.

But yeah, Joe has a good understanding of all the players involved and makes solid match-up decisions based on the situation.

Also, Joe has been captain for 2 years now. That's it. Tracy was the captain before that.

West Side Captains:
2012 - Cooper
2013 - Tracy
2014 - Initially Dick. Joe took over the last few weeks because Dick was overwhelmed with KCWO. But the three of us worked together formulating a plan leading up to the match-up process. However, Joe is listed as (C) on the trophy
2015 - Joe
2016 - Joe

We need to play more tournaments.

That is an astute observation that goes for all of KC, actually.  I think we tend to stay close to home too much; play events locally on courses we're comfortable on.  Personal experience showed me that traveling, even if just 3-4 hours from home, improved my game and competitive resolve.  i.e. motivation to actually practice, not just attend leagues here and there.  It's always been perplexing to me that the KC area doesn't regularly have top card players at big tourneys.  I think the volume of tournaments available here now is helping to raise the overall quality of players in KC. But I believe road tripping is necessary to push our best players to the next level.

Statistically, west side seems to have an edge winning four consecutive times.I'll do my research to support my theory next.

No need to dig.  I think Jose's point is that west side has a greater number of quality players than east side.  But that's the entire basis of this competition; Which side is better.  Then which side can bring their best game on Challenge weekend.  Jose appears to get bitter in defeat because he is a passionate competitor.   

Despite our differences in opinion around the Team Challenge, I personal enjoy seeing Jose's name consistently high up in tourney results against the best in country. And now with the Challenge over, I can go back to rooting for him again. 

West Side would love nothing more than to have East Side bring their "Be All End All" team. 

It won't matter.

Looks like lightning and rain this evening -- hopefully not.

It looks like the storm will push on through by 6:00.  Maybe a slightly delayed start, but get out and battle for a spot on the Best Side.

Must be a sworn to secrecy KCWO SECRET then. ;)

- a KCWO embroidered wind/rain performance pullover jacket.
- a $68 voucher for Go Ape (apparently good for 4 hours of zip line adventure there in Swope Park)
- a DD Evidence
- a Gateway Warlock
- a Makani (new super class disc)
- a wide open bag tag (doubled as entry into raffle prize drawings)
- an individually personalized leather tag
- a New Belgium beer bottle opener
- a sock like beer bottle koozie
- a rubber beer bottle koozie
- a half dozen stickers from various vendors
- a tube of lip balm
- additionally, a long sleeve KCWO shirt

So, if you enter events for the stuff, and didn't enter this one, you missed out, imo.
