Hey Rizbee,

From what I could determine from talking with the Ocean of Funs rep at the Missouri Parks and Rec trade show about 5 years ago was that the baskets were most likely trashed. Ouch!

Please do try to make it for the KC Worlds. It will be a very good one!

Trivia: KC folks should know that Rizbee put together the first Course Directory back in 1985 or 1986 or one of those years.


I know there was a course in Oceans of Fun or Worlds of Fun at one point.  I'm assuming it's gone, since it isn't listed on the forum.  Any info on when it went away, why, where the baskets went?


PDGA #1752
San Marcos, CA

BTW...Rizbee Jr. and I played Waterworks on our drive to Milwaukee this past summer - one of my all time favorites.  Hope to be back next year for Worlds!!

Here's what is known. The 99 women's team will play Saturday, May 3, with the first group going off at 10 a.m., followed by groups at 8 minute intervals. The 152 men's teams will start at 7 a.m. on Sunday. The scheduling was done by the other disc golf captain Kyle Piedimonte (Chappy and I are the other captain) with the Division A teams going off first. They were paired in alphabetical order. Thus,  Cerner, an A-division team, tees at 7:08 (men) and 10:08 (women). The men play with the City of Kansas City and the women are paired with Children's Mercy Hospital. I believe that all this information will be sent you to the team reps soon, perhaps as early as today. If anyone else wants to know their company's tee time, let us know.

The course configuration was selected by Chappy and me, and measures just over 5800 feet (see below). All the short tees will be used, the rocked off areas will not be OB, and #1 and #10 will have mando's in effect. The KCFDC is hosting this event, and Jim Neal, Dan Cashen, Nathan Fishback, Dan Coffman, and Tavish Sanders, have all offered to help. If you want to help (spotting, making sure there's water on the course, making the course clean before the event, etc.), let us know.

Here is the course we're using. The course will go to these positions for the last round of the Swope Spring Renewal, which means the exact course that will be used will be available for practice nearly a full week prior to the event. Oh yeah, DGW is offering a special $30 starter kit (leopard, shark, putter, starter bag, and mini) to CC competitors.

If there are questions, please ask away.


I'm going to try to get some info soon, but the KCCC people are not exactly the most forthcoming about information.  I tried to email them to get some info at the end of last month, and got no response.  Maybe Rick will have better luck.

The divisions tee time will all be dependent upon how may teams signed up.  I was out Sunday with a friend of mine who was playing with her company, and I saw 2 other company's out there.  So it looks like we've generated some good buzz, and will have quite a few participants.

Dean Uhlman Hole #8 at Rosedale in the stump during the Ice Bowl 1-27-08

Dan Coffman Hole #12 at Pleasant Hill on 2/3/08

Cooper Arnold Hole #2 at Prairie Center on 3/1/08

Justin Starks Hole #2 at Rosedale on 3/19/08

Cool. I wanted to start including all aces in Chain Mail. To make the report fuller, we could include the disc thrown (model and weight), the hole length, and witnesses.

Yes, I was curious about this too.  Are advanced men $27 or $32?  And what is the difference between Pro Women ($37) and Pro Women ($32)? 

Anyone have knowledge of which tee pads are on tap for Sunday?

I think it's spozed to be $32 for advanced.

It's definately going to be a three round event again?

If you count the doubles, which is its own entity, that would be 3 rounds.  However the main draw is two rounds on Saturday. I don't recall it ever being three rounds.

Ted is expected back in town shortly. I talked with him last Friday, and it's a go. Once he agrees to the information on the flier I made, then we'll make it official. The same schedule will likely be used: Friday, April 11...camping set-up begin in the early PM with glow doubles in the evening: Saturday-two rounds of golf with Ted's BBQ between rounds and after the last round; Sunday, golf to TBD.

Stay tuned.


Tournaments / DUI, PI Doubles, Swope Spring Renewal Entry Forms
« on: March 21, 2008, 12:38:03 pm »
Entry forms for the DUI, the Cancer Benefit Doubles at PI, and the Swope Spring Renewal can now be downloaded from the homepage of this site.


just to clarify.. do you have to be in the corporate challenge to play in this or is this a mixed tourney with the corporate challenge players. kinda like when they have the regular golfers playing with movie and other sport personalities on tv??
the corporate challenge scores and our scores would be seperate most likely if so.

There are Corporate Challenge divisions for those who will be playing in that event the next weekend. The other divisions are open to those who qualify for them.

Hey, it is officially half-way to John and Rick's next birthday, so let's celebrate with a beer! Still not sure if I can make it tonight...

Hey Uly ready to join us for that birthday beer?


Rosedale / 2008 Rosedale League--Everyone is Welcome!
« on: March 10, 2008, 09:49:03 pm »
John Chapman and I are running league at Rosedale this year. It looks like Wednesday is the pick weather day of the week. Come on out and say goodbye to winter.

We are teeing off promptly at 5:30. Please register by 5:15 or give me a call at 816.914.0094 if you want on a  card. Amateurs—be they advanced, intermediate, rec, or novice—are encouraged to play. We intend to be very liberal in creating divisions. Three players are preferred, but we're flexible. KC Kash will be given as prizes, and there will be discs there to redeem any winnings. Cash divisions this week are open and masters (40 or turn 40 in 2008) and/or grandmasters (50 or turn 50 in 2008).

Entry fee: $5.00 (KCFDC members get a $1 discount). Ace Pool is $1 and optional. The current ace pool is around $400. 

More will be posted later here, but we're going to try some new formats this year at Rosedale. Stay tuned.

If you tee right at 5:30, I think there's enough light to get it a round in, especially on a short course. It might give a few more folks a chance to get there on time. Count me in.

                Sunrise:               Set:
Actual Time:    7:35 AM CDT    7:22 PM CDT
Civil Twilight:   7:09 AM CDT      7:48 PM CDT

While we're at it.. what's the possibility of moving the DUI to Saturday, March 22nd, instead of Easter Sunday?

Just talked with Pete Cashen, who opted for Sunday, March 30.

I am correct that only 4 people from each company can compete (2 men, 2 women), right?

Chris is correct. Companies have one team of two men and one team of two women.

With more companies than ever (173 at last count) signed up for the Corporate Challenge, it's most likely that there will be tee times rather than a shotgun start. This will be not finalized until after 5 p.m. on March 19, which is the deadline for teams to get their rosters for disc golf turned in.

John Chapman and I will be sharing what they call the Games Captain duties, along with another Captain, Kyle Piedemonte (a disc golfing golf pro) who has worked previously with the KCCC in golf. The Game Director for disc golf is a long-time KCCC official (and ball golfer) Bob McMillan.

Here's a link to the list of companies in the KCCC.
If you work for one of these companies, make DG happen there. This is really a great opportunity to promote our sport.

Rick - any idea what time the rounds will start each day? Is it one round Sat one on Sunday>
I'm trying to find a partner and he's church going guy and needs to know before he commits.

The KCCC disc golf is one round on Saturday. Sunday would be if we were rained out on Saturday. Whether a shotgun start or tee times are used will be decided once registration closes.
