It is the Kansas City Team Challenge.
The event has already been scheduled. It was put on the BoD calendar on Jan. 5th. I went to the board meeting in Jan. to determine the event date. Other dates were considered and discussed, but it was agreed by the BoD that this is the best date, in the local schedule, for the event. Consulting with the BoD is what you're supposed to do when adding an event to the local calendar. In addition, working with the board on the date makes it such that my actions can't be taken as, Mrs. Walker unilateral shenanigans.
I don't think all weeknights is a better solution. It may work for some, but I am pretty sure, it won't work for most. It would also open a can of worms about which weeknights should be used to work around availability of players on each side... nightmare.
I made a proposal to temporarily solve the issue but also countered with why that wouldn't be great. Previously, I was inferring that the MDC change their date. It is better if this event remains on the same weekend every year, so that it can be planned around. I have offered Friday night Alt shot doubles as a possibility in the past. Was met with some resistance, as some have to work. But it is a possible solution to having both the challenge and the MDC on the same weekend. Lee, I like the idea that we celebrate together, as Kansas City disc golfers, Friday night, after the first round. Alt round host throws the party? As long as MDC is Saturday only, we could run the KCTC on Friday evening and Sunday.
