Just got word from the Photo Editor at DiscGolfer magazine that they will hold the press for the Wide Open to see if we can come up with a riveting action or emotion-laden photo of the eventual open and/or open women's champions. We have to deliver to the photo by Monday morning. Think cover...vertical orientation. If it makes the cover by itself, they'll pay up to $100. If you're interested and have the equipment to produce a very high-resolution photo, please call me.

It a typo, but may want to clarify via email that the final round Sunday is at 8:10 am and not pm

Typo's been fixed. Also have added that B-Tier check in is at Rosedale.

As I'm officially an "Out-of-Towner" now, completely stoked to be making the trip up there for this!  8)

Question though, and I'm pretty sure I know the answer but, I'll be traveling up there either Thursday evening or EARLY Friday morning and wanted to make sure that check-in for me to get the players pack and what not would be possible before/at the first round?....giggity...

James,

We intend to have players package at the course for those unable to check in on Thursday. If you get there earlier enough (30 minutes or so before the meeting), we should be able to get it to you before the round. After the round, for sure.

Question:

I was under the impression that round 5 for the NT would be on tee times. Is that not the case? (I saw the approximate time for the top cards but other than that it was unclear.)

Cooper,

Tee times were never a consideration after we decided to go with a LOT of golf AND a final 9.

Here's the official schedule. It's part of a letter that has been sent to registered players. Please note that we are now limiting the NT to 72 players, the A-Tier to 144 players, and the B-Tier to 72 players. The registration list at pdga.com is updated as of 4:00 on May 26.

Scheduling Information
There are actually two schedules below: the first includes all events and times and the second shows the disc golfing schedule only, broken down by PDGA Tournament classification and pools and times. Look at the second schedule for which courses you will be playing. Please note and share this information to people who are still considering whether to play or not, that we are now limiting the NT to 72 players, the A-Tier to 144, and the B-Tier to 72. Current registration for each is: NT—54 in, holding spots for 5 players—13 left; A-Tier—125 in, holding a spot of one player—14 left. B-Tier—42 in—30 left.

As you review the playing schedule, A-Tier players please take note that as we move towards our 144 capacity, that we might have to switch up some divisions to make sure that each pool has roughly the same number of players in it.

Let me add another reason to join the KC Wide Open...come several days earlier and play some of the many excellent courses that are NOT going to be used in the Wide Open.

Scheduling information will be posted online as well as emailed directly to all pre-registrants quite soon, but first wanted to address the less than robust B-Tier registration.

So yes, I'm kind of surprised that the B-Tier Wide Open for intermediate, recreational, and novice players has not, so far, drawn more players. We hope this will change in the next 48 hours. The shirt order has to be placed by noon on Friday, which means if you think you want to play, let me know your  division and shirt size BEFORE NOON ON FRIDAY!
 
Here are some reasons why lesser-rated players should be part of this historical event:
The cost is only $55 (add $10 more if not PDGA) and here's what you get:

 1. Play three of the courses that the pros will be playing: Swope Gold, Water Works, and Blue Valley.
 2. A very cool SuperColor ESP Buzzz
 3. Pigment Dyed Performance Shirt
 4. Dynamic Disc Dirt Bag
 5. Saturday Night Soiree featuring a full Italian dinner. Check out frankiejscatering.com. Also a DJ, Triple X competition, and more will be happening
 6. 30th Annual KCWO Commemorative Program - 32 page magazine tracks each of the previous 29 Wide Open
 7. Vintage issue of Disc Golf World News--a large glossy, well-written magazine from years gone by.
 8. Prizes based on finished, and some CTPS too.(but you’ll have to earn these!)
 
Besides what a player gets, there are even more opportunities.
1.  Meet and greet Ken Climo at Disc Golf World on Friday night
2.  Dynamic Disc Team Clinic on the DD KC Store on Friday night
3.  That's right: TWO disc golf stores in one town to check out!
4.   Triple X games - $20 includes your Passport Disc. Field is limited to participate in some wild and wacky Frisbee   games.  Fun and prizes.
5.   Low cost camping at Swope Park - $10 a night
6.   Final 9 at Swope featuring top 4 men and top 3 women
7.    Sunday's free Concert in the Park after the Final 9
8.   DD Doubles on Friday at Rosedale
9.   Watching the top pros at Blue Valley and/or Wilbur Young on Friday
10. Becoming part of a 30-year tradition.

Looking for high-res photos of 2010 open division champion Eric McCabe and women's open champ Jennifer Allen from the event. Awards photos are fine as are any they show faces.

Also, if anyone has historical Wide Open photos from 1983 to 1993, I'm very interested. We'd scan them and get them back to you.

Thanks

Here's the breakdown of entrants so far. It's picking up. If you are intending to play, it would be great if you registered sooner than later as it helps in our planning. As to the age-based pro divisions, there will be a minimum of $1800 added, which would mean a $3100 purse for the 13 men who have signed up so far.   

Open   25
Open Women   6
Adv Women Master   1
Adv Women   3
Advanced Men   32
Advance GM   11
Adv Masters   8
Adv SGM   2
Pro Masters   8

Pro SGM   2
Int Women   1
Int men   3
Rec Men   4
Nov Men   2
   111

The Parks Department did all the work. Moving forward, it would good to have some locals interested in partnering with Parks Dept on maintenance and improvement issues. Dannie Stamper is the Parks and Rec Director. He's a nice guy and very good to work with.

Hell yes! Wish I would've known there was a course going in, I definitely would've volunteered some time.

The grand opening of this short and fun nine-hole track, designed by Jack Lowe, will be Saturday, April 28 at 11 am. There will be hot dogs and some giveaways. The City is planning an additional nine holes down the road.

It was kind of nippy in the morning as the first competitors found their way to Swope. But the sun was shining brightly and the course, sporting a fresh mow, looked fantastic. All told, there were 48 teams of avid, high-spirited disc golfers, who enjoyed the 36 holes of disc golf and a taste of the Triple X Games. I want to thank everyone who played and helped.
