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.

Club Archives / Support the Worlds and Have A Chance to Win Nine Mach IIIs
« on: February 19, 2009, 04:56:15 pm »
This just in from the DGA:

Short version: Buy a new Sparkle After Shock mid-range for $25 and you are entered into a drawing to be held at the Worlds for two nine-hole Mach III courses (baskets only). Only 1500 discs will be sold. I'd love to see the baskets won by people close to KC. Who's in?

Rick

Two 9-Hole Course Giveaway & Worlds Fundraiser
Presented to the 2009 PDGA Pro/Am World Championships

DGA is excited to announce the return of our highly successful fundraiser disc and disc golf course giveaway program that has been offered to the 2009 Pro/Am World Championships being held in Kansas City, Missouri.   This is the third year this program has been offered to the PDGA Worlds and has proven to be a very successful fundraiser for the Championships.

This year’s fundraising disc will be our brand new midrange disc, the Aftershock. This midrange is a controllable, stable disc with great glide that will surely find its way into many golfers’ bags.  DGA is excited to be offering this new disc in our Limited Edition Sparkle plastic blend for this fundraiser.  Once again, DGA has created a very unique and stylish piece of color artwork for this disc that will surely increase the collector value. 

A total of 1500 of these special run discs will be produced.  Like years past, each disc purchased will come with one raffle ticket.  Each raffle ticket will be added to a drawing that will take place during the week of the Pro/Am Worlds in Kansas City (July 27th-August 1st, 2009).  There will be two winners of this drawing and those winners will each receive a 9 hole custom Mach III course. 

The winner will have their very own course to do with as they wish.  This is a great opportunity for individuals as well as clubs across the country to get a chance at winning the course you’ve always wanted without having to come up with the funds to purchase a whole course. You can install your own private course and keep it to yourself or you can donate the full course to a park department and be a hero in your local disc golf community.

This year’s prized Mach III Deluxe Disc Pole Holes will be powder coated in a limited edition color (yet to be determined).  DGA rarely powder coats the Mach III Pole Holes, making the courses truly unique.  We feel that because of this fact, the limited fundraiser discs will be sold very quickly.  We expect disc golf clubs will pool their resources to purchase as many of these discs as possible in order to increase their chances of winning. 

The discs will be sold through four exclusive partners. Disc Golf World (www.discgolfworld.com), Disc Nation (www.discnation.com), Gotta Go Gotta Throw (www.gottagogottathrow.com), and Sun King Discs (www.sunkingdiscs.com) have joined forces with 2009 Worlds and DGA to promote and sell these discs.   We will begin selling in early March and continue up until the week of Worlds or until all have been sold. We will also make a limited number of these discs available to authorized tournaments that work closely with DGA.

Visit the Disc Golf Association’s website at www.discgolfassoc.com for more details and updated information. Please take advantage of this great opportunity to support the 2009 Professional and Amateur World Championships, receive a great collector’s disc, and have a chance to win an amazing course.

Here's the deal: tomorrow morning on either KMBC-9 or KMBC's sister station KCWE-29 will have an interview with Pete Cashen and perhaps, me, as we celebrate the birthday of the Frisbee. I'm not familiar enough with that  morning news show to know at what time it goes from Channel 9 to Channel 29. Pete has brought out some of his old and valuable Frisbee for show and tell. Not sure what else may come up, but Ice Bowl and Worlds will not doubt get mentioned.

When I talked with the reporter, Brenda Washington, about Ice Bowl, she proposed that they come out to Rosedale on the Friday before Ice Bowl Sunday. I hope that we can firm this up tomorrow. If so, we will be looking for volunteers for early Friday morning, January 23, at the first tee of Rosedale.

Also, it would be nice if someone could record tomorrow's telecast.

« on: November 13, 2008, 03:40:21 pm »
I put this in the wrong thread this morning...so here it is again.


We received the following email the other day. We are preparing a package of goodies from both the KCFDC and DGW to help out. Brett is the son of Alan, who beside supporting the sport though his heavy involvement with Disc Golf TV, is a really great guy. Both have attended the Wide Open. In fact, Brett was 5th in the intermediate in 2006. If anyone wants to donate any new item)s), please let me know or drop it by the store before next Wednesday. The Hansen Beggs are from Minnesota.


 Good morning! My name is Kelli Fredericksen and I am
coordinating a benefit for Brett Hansen Begg, a 16 year old pro disc
golfer who was in a terrible car accident in August. Brett is at the
Gillette Children‚s Hospital in Minneapolis. We are hosting a benefit for
him on Saturday, December 6th in Saint Cloud. We will have live music and
a silent auction. I am reaching out to the disc golf community in search
of items for our silent auction. Would your company be willing to donate
any items for this benefit? This family is unbelievable and is desperate
need. Please let me know if you can help. Thank you very much!!

General Banter / A New Course on the Distant Horizon...Maybe!
« on: October 29, 2008, 09:43:07 pm »
I admit I've been spending way too much time on the Web, but I did discover the good news that the Johnson County Board of Park and Recreation Commissioners approved the master plan for a park at Rieke Lake located west of De Soto and north of K-10 Highway. Of course, the plan does include an 18-hole disc golf course. Check the article here: http://jcprd.com/pages/rieke.cfm. Of course, "implementation of a master plan for the Rieke Lake property is subject to fund availability and board approval."

Beginners / Climo on Grips
« on: October 29, 2008, 07:56:36 pm »
Maybe we should change the name of this section to Instructions or Improving Your Game. There's always more to learn, no matter how long one's been throwing.

Pete Cashen mentioned this video to me this morning, and showed me the grip that Climo touts. I've not tried it yet, but it it creates a very tight grip without forcing it.

« on: October 08, 2008, 03:38:40 pm »
All bosses ain't bad. But we've heard some of the new super fast Bosses from Innova are flippier than others.

We've ordered 50 first-run Bosses with the first KC Worlds stamp. They are expected as early as a week from Friday. They are $20 each and are the first fund-raisers for next July's big event.

You can place your order here: http://tinyurl.com/thekcboss
or give us a call at DGW to reserve yours. They are only available in the 173-175 gram range. I expect them all to be 175.

We're also going to stamp a few other CFR discs. Please let me know if you might be interested in one or more of these.

Rosedale / Rosey League 9-24
« on: September 25, 2008, 10:45:17 am »
A pleasant enough evening for the 29 players, but there's seem to be a problem with not enough light. As a remedy to this, we'll be out there at 4:45 next weekend, and will send out groups of 3 or 4 on holes #1 and hole #10 as they are formed (yes, you can form your own groups.) No group will go off later than 5:15. The course will be shorter next Wednesday, based on the second round of the RAC. Please alert any non-message board readers of this plan.
