Bag Tags / Re: 2008- What number ya got?
« on: February 14, 2008, 09:29:16 AM »
Rick,
How about we have quite a few bag tag tourneys throughout the year. Maybe different formats like everyone putting their tag in a box shake it up and redraw in the order of your previous # before you play or draw in order of where you placed overall at the end. Or Of course the usual, play what you have amongst the group. I think shaking things up by redrawing gives people #'s they are not used to having more often. The tourney where you end up drawing at the end would not have divisions.

Hey Steve,

That would definitely mix things up Steve, but it does introduce the element of luck of the draw again. Ideally, people end up with the bag tag they deserve through their play on the course.

Here's a twist I've suggest before: that every once in a while (with advanced notice ideally) a league would put players out, regardless of division, by bag tag order. I know last year, the #1 tag was hanging around the masters division, with the best open players never getting a shot at it.

BTW, does anyone have any clue,who ended up with the top 10 tags last yea?

I'm not a winter warrior, but as soon as the temps moderate a bit on a weekend, I hoping to defend my #1 tag. As noted below, a few have challenged. Anyone else?

Rigging of the bag tag selection process...hum...sounds like maybe a guilty conscious or something there mister. (WOW...comments like that won't get me invited to the show down anytime soon huh?)

Dan  :o

PS- I request a reservation sir! You name the time and place...any course...any time...any temperature!!

Kind sir, which tag are you carrying now?

Rick, are you still holding on to #1, or did someone take it from you?

Still #1 unless someone broke into my van and snatched it from bag. I'm intending to invite a few deserving* players to take a shot at it...but only when the weather warms enough to allow at least a modicum of muscle warming and expansion, which takes a little longer with each passing decade. Anyone want to make a tentative reservation.

*deserving means having the experience, skill, and rating to be KC's#1 player through performance on the field (as opposed to blind luck or the rigging of the bag tag selection process.)

General Banter / Re: Any new ideas for Monday night league?
« on: February 10, 2008, 01:38:58 PM »
As long as we're theorizing out here while waiting for the weather to warm, let me bring up this idea that was first suggest in a DGWN article by Dan "Stork" Roddick in 1997. http://www.pdga.com/club_affiliate/club_af_teamstork.php  It's a longish article. You'll need to scroll down a bit to get to his concept, which is fielding two teams of 36 players that would include people of both genders and all abilities. To localize it, let's imagine that we have a Kansas team and a Missouri team. The tournament would be two rounds (home and away for each team). Match play would be the ideal. When I last suggested this idea, it got trashed pretty quickly, but it still intrigues me. For now, I just want to throw it out here. I think the way it might ever come to fruition is if the lower divisions: novice, rec, intermediate were decided first. If we have get our two (one on each team) rec women, two intermediate women, two rec, 2 intermediate men first, the other players shouldn't be too hard to find. Anywy, just more food for thought while waiting for the thaw.

Glad to see people thinking about art and design. Creating designs that are original and speak of the event is not an easy process. Please keep in mind that there will likely be more than one design and that they will be used in different media. For example, there will be hotstamped discs for sure, and likely full color discs as well. Please visit http://www.innovadiscs.com/discs/customdiscs.html and http://discraft.com/art.html to learn more about art specs. Discs will be used both for player packages and in small runs for fundraising. (While at the Innova and Discraft sites, check out their fund-raising opportunities.) In addition to discs, there will be tee shirts (full color disc designs can be duplicated here) and probably embroidered golf shirts and caps. Embroidery design is slightly different again. Another slightly different design would be what I'll call more of a corporate logo that would be used on letterhead, sponsorship proposals, etc.

As to the design itself, please note that the use of the globe, while enticing, has kind of become almost a cliche because of over-use. My take on the 2009 Worlds is that is not just the PDGA Worlds, but it's the KANSAS CITY Worlds. So, I'm partial to designs that incorporate elements that reflect life in KC or its heritage. For example, the Iowa Worlds (both of them) used agricultural motifs among their logos. Nashville used music as a theme.

Please note that Jack Lowe and John Chapman are the head guys for the pro-am worlds, and no doubt have a time-table to get moving. Emails or phone calls directly to them about the worlds is a superior method of communciating that talking to them out here. I know I often don't have time to respond out here in a timely manner, but do try to keep my email box clean.

Oh Rick...where can we find you Saturday or Sunday...got to take a crack at #1.

Since I've not played a single round since November 5 (the longest I've ever gone since I got into this disc golf thing) I am reserving the right to play one rust-removing round before I inevitably lose the #1 tag. Of course, Dan, if it is versus you that I were to defend first, the inevitability might be delayed a bit! Perhaps Water Works on Saturday will be my first outing in 2008.

Tournaments / Re: Ice Bowl - 2008
« on: January 29, 2008, 04:22:46 PM »
Here are the people of the 2008 Kansas City Ice Bowl. Those with no scores either played (and didn't turn in scorecards), helped, stopped by and bought a package, or bought a package ahead of time. If your name is not on the list, and you would like it to be, there's still time to buy a package. If you did buy a package and your name is not on the list, let me know. I'll be back with a fuller report soon. Oh yeah, while not yet official, it looks like our charities, Bishop Sullivan and the Faith, Love, Hope, Win Foundation, will be enriched by $4,000. Let's give ourselves collective pats on the back. We did well...and had a bunch of fun doing it. Congrats to Bryan Guthrie, the Ice Bowl champion.

Please go here— http://icebowlhq.com/docs/kcice08registration.pdf —to download a registration form for the 21st Annual KC Ice Bowl on January 27. As the Ice Bowl is KC's largest annual event, we're not changing it up much—play with your own group the first round (when you can use all the mulligans you care to buy) and then a break for the chili feed (please bring chili) and the CTP contest. (Please bring prizes to donate or hit your favorite restaurant or store up for a gift certificate. Best prizes so far are a DISCatcher Traveler (retails for $125)  and a $50 DGW gift certificate.) There will be a second nine holes for those who want to have a chance at winning a disc and of course, to get their name engraved on the Ice Bowl perpetual trophy. No mulligans allowed during the second round.

We've added a new charity this year. Besides the Bishop Sullivan Center (http://bishopsullivan.org), which has been our only charity for several years, we welcome club member Dave Emerson's FLHW Foundation (http://www.flhw.org/). After discovering that he had a very bad case of prostate cancer, he formed FLHW to help find a cure. Our goal this year is to raise $3300, with FLHW getting 1/3 of the total.

A word about which charities are most appropriate for our Ice Bowl is that we really want to choose causes that are local, which allows us to better integrate ourselves within the community at large. This can have benefits beyond just doing good things. For example, we had the Bishop Sullivan Center on our side when we went ofter PIAC money, which led to both Cliff Drive and Blue Valley.

Although I don't view our Ice Bowl as a competition with the other Ice Bowls who are raising more money than we, I am entirely open to the idea of raising more money. Steve Glover, if you know of a person or company who might be willing to match our donations, please let me know whom to contact. I'll follow up on that right away. I know that St Cloud, which raised an incredible $21K last year, got a nice matching grant, but they work on Ice Bowl all year long as well. As others have mentioned, some Ice Bowls run fund-raising events prior to Ice Bowl to buoy their total. Other Ice Bowls work the business community and generous disc golfer for cash donations. I'll be glad to work with anyone who wants to pursue more sponsorship, but we need to hit the streets soon.

While raising more dough is a laudable goal, I'm remain quite proud of the KC disc golf community for what we've done with Ice Bowl. We have a whole bunch of fun as we play some golf, eat and party, and don't whine. Also, we've managed to get some very nice publicity for the event and our sport as well. Let's do it again! Oh yeah, if it remains icy, we will not go Downunder for the second round. (This might been sixsomes, but no more broken bones!)

As always, the success of this event has to do with lots of people pitching in. Right now we need things such as a generator, more tables, more chili and other dishes (beer?), donations (cash or prizes), judges for the chili contest, a prize for the chili contest, and so on. If you want to donate some time in the running of the event, please give me a call at 816.471.3742. Looking forward to catching up with everyone on January 27. My prediction for the weather is no snow and 48° as a high. (Anyone want to run a weather prediction pool—half going to the winner and the other half to charity?)

Beginners / Re: Disc shapes and weights
« on: December 24, 2007, 11:57:28 AM »
What would be good disc shapes and weights for low strength beginners? The promise of "long straight drivers" by the manufacturers is anything but for a novice. Any suggestions?

First of all, please take any advice you receive in disc golf, especially on line, with skepticism, including my answer here. We offer advice at Disc Golf World to people new to the game, and there are more new people all the time.  Before making any recommendations, we first ask about what discs the person is throwing and how they fly. We also determine which hand the player uses to throw and if they are throwing predominately backhands or forehands. The physique and gender of a new player also influences the advice we offer. Sooo, Crickey, let us know what discs you have tried and how you throw them. Generally speaking, it is better to learn to throw with a putt and approach or midrange discs. As to the shape of a disc, keep it round.

The 21st Kansas City Ice Bowl is, indeed, January 27 at Rosedale.  I'll try to have registration forms and pledge sheets available next week. We are open to the idea of supporting more than one charity this year. Also, there will be a limited number of Ice Bowl hot-stamped Champion Destroyers available for fundraising purposes only. They'll be in the 30 buck range.

Who's bringing chili this year?

More later.

Hey club guys........any idea when the Ice Bowl will be?


Yep, gotta pretty good idea:
