I've no proof for this assertion, but I believe that there is incredible skill to be able to project the disc high enough to take advantage of the wind, and of course, angling the disc optimally for massive distance. I would hazard a guess that the same guys and gals who are setting records would hold the records in an indoor setting, if and when we can find a venue for this. While I believe that Tracy's "hurricane" scenario makes some sense, I will continue to argue that just not anyone can throw a disc far in high winds.
The official word now is the wind was closer to 40MPH, and disc weighed in at 154.
Apparently, Simon Lizotte's distance record of 903 feet, set on Saturday, has been pulverized today by David Wiggins, who reportedly threw a 150-gram R Pro Boss 1,109 feet. WTF? As the wind may have been howling at close to 60 MPH (on the ground), the naysayers will be back in force.
This tournament is out in the middle of damned nowhere, so if you don't pack a lunch, it's a seriously good idea to eat the Hog Holler BBQ lunch.
To simplify matters, it turns out I qualify with no exceptions needed. The rule was to be a KCFDC member and to live within a 50-mile radius from the confluence of the Missouri and Kansas Rivers, right? I'm in there.
Just for the record, this event did not start as "the best of the best". It has become an elitist event. Having to play in PDGA rounds to qualify for a local club event is ridiculous IMO. We should have spots for over 50 players and over 60 players. Without them, we wouldn't have the KCFDC. On the shoulders of giants, standing we are. Let's act like it.
