9 folks that don't let a little chilly weather or darkness stop them from playing some DG were out for a round last night. It was frosty, but the wind was non-existent. In fact, I can not remember a calmer round at Prairie Center.
 We even had some added excitement when some idiot decided to go four wheelin out in the middle of the well manicured soccer fields. Deano called the police while the fool was doing it, and I attempted to get his tag number as he sped out of the park, but he got away. At least he didn't run over any baskets.

Dan Coffman and Andy Lewis shooting 50 for $15 (won playoff)
Arturro Villareal and John Raich shooting 50
Bob Hayett and Dan Forster shooting 53
Dean Uhlman and Cali Deano shooting 58

We have 7 more Monday night GLOW rounds left. I have lights for sale ($2) each, and our ACE fund is up to $126, so come on out and have some fun.

I agree there are a lot of players and new players out there that might want to play some local, non-sanctioned tourneys where you don't get kicked out for drinking beer and partying during the round. It's too bad though that most of the top rated players in the area won't be at these "local" tourneys to demonstrate quality, competitive golf as they will be out of town on weekends attending sanctioned events in other citys.

My vote would be for 3 to 5 sanctioned events in KC between March and October and maybe 1 or 2 non-sanctioned events. Perhaps if I ever stop playing long enough I'll try to run a tourney to help with these numbers, but I'm having too much fun just showing up and playing right now. I would like to say a big THANK YOU to all the TD's and voluteers around our great DG metro.    

Let's just agree to disagree on this. Different strokes for different folks. We all support and contribute to the game in our own way.

55-60 degrees this afternoon! Let's play!

We have local events every night of the week during the summer season, which is awesome. Why have non-PDGA tournaments on the weekends just to play against the same bunch of players that you play against all week in leagues?

Prairie Center / Groundhog Day

The Olathe crew, or at least I, am heading out this evening for a round of dg.... maybe skins or best score or both. Come on out and join in the fun. Should be around 55 and South winds at 5 mph. I are planning on starting around 5:15-5:45.

And, since it's Ground Hog Day, I thought I would post a few words of reflection....

"When Chekhov saw the long winter, he saw a winter bleak and dark and bereft of hope. Yet we know that winter is just another step in the cycle of life. But standing here among the people of Punxsutawney, or WW GLOW, Olathe GLOW, either of our Saturday Leagues, or the masses at the Ice bowl, and basking in the of warmth of their hearths and hearts, I couldn't imagine a better fate than a long and lustrous winter."

8 out for a beeeeauuutiful evening of DG on the Prarie. Temps around 39 and light winds out of the NW at 7 mph allowed John Raich and Arturro Villareal to tear it up.

OK, so far it's me and Andy and Bryan, and maybe Deano. We are starting as close to 5:45 as we can, depending on when Bryan gets there. Come on out if anybody thinks they can take some coin from the Olathe crew. I'll have some lights if ya need em.

Are you the TD for this event? If you are, are you going to make it a PDGA sanctioned event?

Would you rather play PDGA sanctioned tourneys, or non-PDGA tourneys?

 I agree that the additional fees suck. I would suggest though that if our goal is to make tournaments less expensive and "easier for the casual player", then we will be hosting tournaments, for the most part, for our local disc golfers only.  I don't think very many out of towners are going to be traveling to KC to play in non-sanctioned events. Any local players that want to earn points and ratings, and advance their game, can simply go out of town to play sanctioned tournaments.
 I don't run any tournaments, so I suppose I should keep my opinions on this matter to myself.
