Found and Lost / Mike Edstedt
« on: April 25, 2016, 07:13:01 PM »
Some of the older Throlathens remember Mike "Mikey" Edstedt. I've not see him for years and the number in the database has been disconnected. I've found his PDGA membership mini #5978 and would like to get it back to him. His last listed address was in Fort Scott, but he hasn't been active with the club since 1993.

General Banter / Distance Record Smashed...Again!
« on: March 28, 2016, 01:46:11 PM »
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.

For some perspective on this, here's a good read. One of the many cool things about Flying Disc Sports is that it is so young that many of the people who created them are still alive. Here is the origin of flying disc distance competition from Dan "Stork" Roddick, the man who epitomizes all things frisbee, as his selection in the Frisbee, Ultimate, Freestyle, and Disc Golf Hall of Fames attest:

No contact information for these discs:

Red DX Beast: there is a name on it.

Z-Buzzz: No name or contact info.  Can be IDed easily

Also a Silver Pain with Remsen written on it along with a phone number that has no voice mail set up.

We have them here at DGW.

General Banter / Great Article
« on: June 09, 2015, 04:46:35 PM »
This is probably the best article about a disc golf community I've ever read, and it's about us!

I wanted to share this with the forum public. As a member of the PDGA Board, reveiwing and voting for the Innovation Grants twice a year is one of the more pleasant tasks for me. If you have a good idea to help grow the sport, consider making application.

Attention Kansas City area disc golfers: Mark your calendars for the 10th Annual Kansas City Disc Golf Day on Saturday, May 31 at Swope Park from 10am to 3pm. Disc Golf Day is about celebrating disc golf in Kansas City with new and old friends by enjoying food and drink and playing golf and other games. Once again, DGD will be a fundraiser for the Kansas City Wide Open. Disc Golf Day is also a wonderful opportunity to introduce new people to the joys of disc golf.

For $20, players receive a commemorative disc and tee shirt, lunch, and a chance to win an Innova Sport Model DISCatcher or other prizes. The Kansas City Flying Disc Club will be providing the barbecue, some sides, and beverages. Everyone is invited to bring other sides, chips, and desserts to share.

The main prizes—the  Sport Model and an Innova Mini Target—will be given away in a drawing at the end of the day. To be eligible for prizes, a player must be a Disc Golf Day participant and play a round of disc golf at Swope that day. In addition to golfing and eating and celebrating, there will be Mini Golf, KC Hole 'Em, and a disc dog demo for further entertainment.

The Schedule
All Day: Pick up your individual scorecard, form your group, and play a round. Turn in your scorecard by 2:55 pm for a chance to win an Innova Traveler and other prizes.
Noon–2pm: BBQ Lunch. Feel free to bring sides, chips, desserts, etc. Beverages provided by the KCFDC.
1pm-3pm: KC Hold ‘Em, Mini Golf
2:15 pm: Frisbee Dog Demo with Joe Hesting and Tony Burnett
3pm: Drawing for Prizes.

Here's a link to download a entry form: You can pre-register at either Dynamic Discs or Disc Golf World…or just show up the day of the event.

Tournaments / 17th Rosedale Amateur Championships - October 6
« on: September 13, 2013, 04:51:03 PM »
It's the time of the year for the 17th Annual Rosedale Amateur Championships, which will be played on the top course at Rosedale Park on October 6. This event has evolved through the years to become a fairly laid-back event with an emphasis on welcoming newer players to the world of competitive disc golf though extra attention to explaining the rules and procedures of disc golf. In addition, we will have several pros in attendance to share their knowledge as well. You can download an entry form here.

To further enhance each player's experience, we're still looking for additional sponsors. Sponsorship can be money, gift certificates, discs, shirts, beer, etc. We hope to have a nice selection of prizes to give away via throw-offs and/or CTPs. If interested, please download a sponsorship form here.

And finally, here's a fun look at the results from all the RACs from 2000-2012. Regrettably, we haven't yet found the data from the first four events, but the other 12 are in here. This was the first event for many of the players listed, including some who have kept playing events, often with much success. The file is an Excel spread sheet.

If you have any questions about playing or sponsorship or anything else, please call 816.471.3472 or write to

Tournaments / Kansas City Ice Bowl 2012- 25th Annual
« on: December 14, 2011, 04:17:09 PM »
Registration for Kansas City's 25th Annual Ice Bowl is now open at Disc Golf World. You can download an entry form and a pledge sheet here: Pre-registering is always a good thing and most appreciated.

The Pledge Sheet is something new for this year. Hopefully, many Ice Bowl participants will ask their friends and family to help out by pledging money for each hole they play at Ice Bowl. In addition to supporting our long-time charity, Bishop Sullivan Center, we are also raising funds for Harvesters—the Community Food Network. Our goal for 2012 is $4000, which is about $1000 more from 2011.

As always, Ice Bowl is more about fun and charity than competition. However, the overall winner gets to keep the Ice Bowl traveling trophy for one year. Our current Ice Bowl champ is Leo DaPrato. Also for those who play the final nine, the winner of each card with the best 27-hole score will win a DX disc.

Similar to the way it was run last year, we'll have two shotgun starts on Saturday, January 28—at 10 am and 1:30 pm on the top course. We'll run a maximum of 108 (18 groups of 6) each round. We'll strive to accommodate all "I-want-to-play-with-someone-specific" requests. This year you can purchase and use mulligans on Saturday as well as Sunday. If there are fewer than 108 players for the afternoon round, people who played in the morning may play a second round for a $5 donation and use the better score for final-nine placement.

Sunday, January 29 will be the traditional Ice Bowl Celebration featuring pick-your-time-with-your-own-group rounds on either course teeing off from 8-10. The closest-to-the-hole contest will conclude around 2 pm. Lunch, which is provided by players bringing chili for the Chili Contest and other munchables to share begins at noon. The final nine hole round tees off around 2:30. To play the final round for a prize, you must have played one round on Saturday or Sunday morning.

We're looking for a person or a team of people who will work with me but will take responsibility for the lunch and the chili contest. This includes finding a generator or generators to power 30-40 crocks of chili, securing bowls and utensils, securing soft drinks, and suggesting or securing a cool prize for the Chili Contest winner. The KCFDC is producing this event and will pay for the what needs to be paid for.

Please consider donating a prize for the Closest-To-The-Pin Contest. This might be a gift certificate from your favorite restaurant or watering hole or some other business; disc golf goodies; movie or sporting event tickets; etc. It's a great place to re-gift those less-than-satisfying Christmas gifts!

If you want to help staff the event on either or both days, donate a prize, bring some chili or other food, please give me a call at 816.471.3472 or 816.914.0094 or shoot an email to Look for updates out here.

One more thing: here is link to a full-color KC Ice Bowl flier: Please post this wherever disc golfers or potential disc golfers gather.

The contact number was no longer valid for a found Pro Katana with CWB and a swoosh prominently dyed on it. Any clues as to its owner?
