As many of you know, Disc Golf World has encouraged people to return lost discs to us to facilitate their return. When we get a found disc, we immediately call or email the owner. Sometimes, we make a second call. Although many discs have been reunited with their owners, we are now sitting on nearly 200 discs that have not been claimed in at least six months. We need to get rid of them.

Starting June 1, we are going to offer these discs for sale with the proceeds going towards the Kansas City Wide Open. We will be open this weekend and encourage you to stop by if you remember us calling you about a disc a long time ago, and you never came for it. Of course, if you find your disc in the for-sale boxes after the sale begins, you may claim it. We have a separate stack of about 40 discs that we have called recently. (Within 6 months.)

Moving forward, we're going to start marking on the found discs the day we make the call to its owner, and will hold those discs for 60 days. After that time, they will become for-sale discs.

I know a lot of people contact the found disc's owner and tell them that they will take it to Disc Golf World. While you're always welcome to come to the store, unless you get a call from Disc Golf World, the disc probably hasn't been delivered to us yet. We strive to contact disc owners as soon as they are returned to us.

Thanks to everyone who keep the community spirit alive by trying to get discs back to their owners.

Tournaments / 28th Annual Wide Open - Countdown to 30
« on: January 12, 2010, 02:10:50 pm »
The 28th Annual Kansas City Wide Open is scheduled as a PDGA B-Tier for June 19-20. Registration information will be forthcoming in the next couple of weeks. This Wide Open is being co-produced this year by Disc Golf World (Rick Rothstein) of Kansas City and Dynamic Discs (Jeremy Rusco) of Emporia, KS.

Jeremy and I will be making some decisions soon about formats, but wanted to use this forum to get some feedback from people who play PDGA events. We're pretty locked in that everyone will play 4 18-hole rounds, but we're not certain about how many courses each division should play.

Which of the scenarios to you prefer and why?

1. To play 4 courses. One round on each course.

2. To play 2 courses: Two rounds on each course.

3. To play 3 courses. Two rounds on one course and one round on each of the other two courses.

An argument for playing a course a second time is that it gives the player another shot at the course. This could be making amends after a less-than-stellar first round. Or it could be showing one's mastery by shredding the courses a second time. For travelers new to KC, trying to practice fewer courses takes less time.

An argument for more courses is variety. KC is famous for its courses, so it's a good thing to let people sample more tracks.

Anyway, any and all feedback is appreciated.

Also, if you are interested in volunteering for the Wide Open, let me know.

Thanks for the input.

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.
