Agree, I think the Midwest Doubles Championship could really pull away talent from the team challenge.  I know I would choose Kansas first, but some people really love their doubles.

Joe, were you still considering using Lakeside Hills for the Saturday, alt shot round?  If so, perhaps we could work with the MDC organizer to have them start early (like 8:00 am tee). Then take a 3 hour or so lunch to allow the Team Challenge to use the course.  When the Team Challenge is done, then they start their afternoon round. Plenty of daylight early June to pull it off. Doing this makes it so neither event has to change dates, in addition to allowing players to participate in both, if they choose. 

It's a fine solution for one year, but Team Challenge has foothold on claim for first weekend in June.  I don't think the Team Challenge should have to accommodate the new event every year.  So making an exception this year may only set precedence for continued conflict on this weekend.

June 6th - Midwest Doubles Championship - B Tier - (Lakeside Hills, Olathe, KS)

That doubles event is in conflict, locally, with the Club's Team Challenge Event.  It wasn't on the BoD's calendar when I attended the board meeting, in January, to finalize the date for the Team Challenge.  I don't think it is fair to make locals choose between the two events.  As such, one of them should be rescheduled.  Who is organizing the Midwest doubles event?

Hey James.  First time tourney experience can be intimidating.  And it sucks she ran into some PoS players.  Prior to her next tourney, help her get a really good grip on the rules and code of conduct. Have her carry a copy of it with her.  If she has confidence in knowing them (at least know they are they to look up), she'll have the power to stand up for herself.  Beyond that, if there is any question or doubt about what is happening on a card, she has to get a TD involved as soon as possible.

Hey Tracy

Did we figure out a good weekend to run the Team Challenge?  Does June 6 & 7 work again?

I figured I'd let this weekends festivities pass before beginning the push for Team Challenge. But yes, the BoD put the Team Challenge on their event calendar for June 6/7.   That's when it will be held.

I will get a set of the rules posted by Feb 1.  That will be coupled with a final call for East Side Captain.

1. It sounds very sinister and world-dominate-y that Dick keeps talking about fitting everything in with "my plan."

Most definitely, the decisions made around this event will determine the future of the world and how Dick will rise to power as the ultimate ruler!?!

no wait... that's completely absurd.

As TD, it's Dick's job to make many decisions. He doesn't actually have to ask for anyone's input. The fact that he does, shows he cares.  In the end, it's not about what each individual wants, but how all the parts fit together to make the best event possible, in its entirety, given the resources, Dick, the TD, has to work with.

less waiting in line to throw? ;D

Yes, far far less of this.  I am personally glad to be back participating in this event, specifically because of the format change.  No more coming up on a mob of players, and having that sinking feeling of "hello 5 hour round"

Also, I signed up for pm round at Rosie on the 24th. If I wanna play am round first and then pm round as I signed up for, I assume I can just show up in the am and pay the $10? And purchase more mullies if I want?

Yes, "first" round actually means any non-final 9 round.

So in this thread people speak of giving up spots to women.  As I read the posts about the first east v west there were women playing and it was part of tracy's original vision.  What happened?  Lack of interest from women and so all the spots went to men?  Just curious.   I haven't read the threads from later years so perhaps it is explained there.


http://kcfdc.org/forum/index.php?topic=10940.msg89901#msg89901

I believe there is significant misunderstanding of the situation. I will explain it all at the board meeting in January.  Please attend, if you wish to hear the full and correct history from the horses mouth, so to speak.

So it's now allowed to recycle old captains?  It seems like the West is just rolling with this.

Personally, I'd like to see captaining done by different players each year. Following the completion of the 1st Team Challenge, I suggested we attempt to rotate captains and make it a one time deal for any individual. That suggestion was immediately met with resistance and good reasoning not to enforce such limitation. It is not my intention, nor was it ever my intention to enforce my opinion on this matter. As such, I stated last year that each side is in full control of how they select their captain, no restrictions, other than determining who the captain will be has to be done before the qualifying process for their side begins. Because, the captain on each side defines their teams player selection process.

By the way, being captain grants you an automatic spot on your team. You are the 1st qualified. Also, as captain, it is your choice, which rounds, if any, you will play in; all, none or some. No player is required or guaranteed to play any certain number of rounds.  Any restrictions or guarantees in this regard are strictly up to the captains for their team. Each team captain is free to create (or not) restrictions and/or guarantees independent of what the other team captain does.

So who's running this now? Not team captains, but the big picture. Serious question. Tracy? I'd love to see juniors and women added to the format. Great suggestion Joe! 20 player teams. I think this town can support that.

Eric, yes, I am the big picture guy for this still. I'll be glad to give you full history and explanation why the event has mutated into what is today. I intend to attend the next KCFDC board meeting to determine the best weekend for the event in 2015.  Hoping for early June, just as it has been for the past two years.  I'll be glad to talk more about the event then.
