I'm pleased to announce the 13th Rosedale Amateur Championships. Through the years, many players have been introduced to competitive disc golf at this event and have gone on to play many more events, and in some cases, have become disc golf community activists as well. So, once again, we'll take a bit of time  before we begin to review the rules and perhaps, provide a tidbit or two of other relevant knowledge that might make you a better golfer. We shooting for a full field of 72 golfers. See you there.

Wow, what a great group of hard-working volunteers we had last night at DGW, getting player's package assembled, which included putting names on each one. We got entirely through the amateurs, and will be taking up the pros this morning.

There might be some rumors out there about the players' packages, and if phat and/or fat have been modifiers, then it's true. Here's a rundown of what the ams are getting: a commemorative Discraft Super Color Crystal Z-Stalker (affixed to the bottom of 100 of these is a coupon to redeem at the Fly Mart for a free Ringer), a commemorative After Shock from the DGA, a Ching Genesis and a commemorative Ching standard bag in hot orange, a commemorative GDS disc and mini set, a Lightning Disc, a commemorative tournament performance shirt and towel, a performance shirt (different worlds logo) from Innova, a commemorative Wham-O mini from Discovering the World, a coozie from Disc Unlimited, a coupon for free pizza at Pizza Shoppe, a coupon redeemable at the Fly Mart for a commemorative Star San Marino Roc from Innova,  a nice looking full-color program, and a course rules booklet. Also, the juniors receive an additional shirt from Scientificdiscgolf.com and a commemorative bottle cap from Becky Zallek. Women will also get the bottle cap. In addition, the Innova shirt for females is styled for women.

Pros will get all of the above except no golf disc from DGA and GDS, and no coozie. They will get an ESP version of the Stalker (no ringer coupons). In addition, they will get a Frisbee.

Thanks goes to these folks, who joined the growing list of volunteers who have been getting our courses ready for the last month: Ed Gonzales, Becky Stebbins, David Valdiviez, Dusty Dewitt, Anthony Puryear, Linda Harwood, Cortney Weaver, Kristie Svejda, Cheryl Riley, Jack Lowe, Trav (Jack's buddy), Leslie Palmer, Brian Palmer, Coach Dave Pennington, Brad Berve, Steve Hoog, Billy Nelson, John Chapman, CJ Johnson, Walker Johnson, and Rick Rothstein.

For all these people, the Worlds has begun. Come join us. The next nine days will continue to be incredible.

I'll be carrying around some unclaimed or unreturnable lost and found discs that have been gathering dust in a corner for nearly 2 years now. There's a variety of models in all plastics in varying conditions, but priced to sell in the $2 to $9 range. The proceeds will go to the Worlds. I'll be at Rosedale tomorrow prior to league.

Tournaments / Fort Scott Tournament on June 6
« on: June 01, 2009, 11:28:17 AM »
Just ran across this:

http://www.fstribune.com/story/1543224.html

This is what i says:

The 2009 Good Ol' Days Festival will host a disc golf tournament for the first time.

The tournament will be held at 1 p.m., June 6, at Gunn Park with on site registration beginning at noon. There will be a registration fee of $5 per entry.

Participants will play 18 holes of disc golf in competition to win a portion of the cash purse. According to the event organizer Tom Robertson, the participants will be broken into two pools based on their scores. The advanced, or top, pool winner will receive a portion of the pot and the novice, or bottom, pool winner will receive also receive a portion.

Although this is the first time the tournament has been held during Good Ol' Days, it is not the first time one has been held in Fort Scott. Robertson said the Buck Run Community Center has sponsored a disc golf tournament as part of Freedom Fest in the past.

"I know the popularity of disc golf has really picked up in the last few years," Robertson said. "Most of the time on a nice day, you go out there and there is somebody playing disc golf."

Robertson is not sure what to expect for a turn out because of the wide range of events being held along with the festival, however he is confident the tournament will be a success.

"I think we will have enough to make it an annual event," Robertson said.

Robertson added he hopes to get feedback from the participants on how to make the event better.

On Saturday, June 6, the Friends of the Mounted Patrol is holding a fundraising event at the Thornfield Disc Golf Course in Stillwell, Kansas. So far, the organization has been very successful in raising money for their cause from sponsors who are not fielding teams. As a result, there are several sponsored positions for those who want to play this event. If playing this event and the challenging Thornfield track on June 6 is of interest, please contact Dan Cashen at 913.638.6399 or dcashen@tmsmech.com to see if you qualify.

It's time for Disc Golf Day on May 16. Here's a link to a registration form: http://www.kcfdc.org/docs/dgd09registration.pdf

We're once again at Rosedale, but we have the shelter reserved this year. Come out and play a round, eat some food, drink some drinks, and plays some games. It's about fun and disc golf camaraderie and also a fundraiser for the Worlds. It's a great time to bring a new person out and teach them about this wonderful game.

Hope to see everyone there. If you can't attend, you can still support the event and get the commemorative disc and tee shirt.

General Banter / 2009 USGDC Champion Rocs Now On Sale
« on: April 10, 2009, 12:16:25 PM »
If interested in the collector's version of the 2009 USDGC Champion Rocs, download this file that shows the 5 designs and a list of the colors. www.icebowlhq.com/docs/2009_usdgc_rocs.pdf

These are the Rocs that come in plastic bags with headers, and will sell for $40 on up. If you're interested in buying one of these Rocs prior to our order going in next Tuesday, the pre-sell price is $30 real money (no KC Kash or prize vouchers) plus sales tax. Give us a call at 816.471.3472 or email at info@discgolfworld if interested. We'll definitely should be able to get the design, the type of Roc (Rancho, Ontario, or San Marino) and weight, and hopefully, the color as well.

There will be a few factory seconds available as well. Once the Collectors Rocs are sold, the Thrower Rocs will be released (for those who just want a disc to throw--no packaging) that will sell in $20 and up range. They will likely have different stamps than the Collectors Rocs.
