Sorry, no personal experience there, but I saw some pros do it on TV once, because I had a car once I was thinking about doing it with. It's a serious pain in the arse to do, and do it right.

I would say the vast majority of us don't play in CC simply because their company isn't involved. It's a lot of money for a company to join, and not all feel it's the best use of their funds.
Chris, this is really sad. When the entry runs $1300-4000, depending on the size of your company. The A divisions companies waste $4000 in the blink of an eye. Just short sided management that does not understand the team building and morale.
Do I sound bitter, I am Sprint/UT&T was one of the inaugural companies competing and now through numerous spin-offs and mergers the current local-telephone company (which will remain nameless) has refused to participate.
Thanks man, couldnt find anything saying for sure but based on last years results i'llbe in division C. See ya there Tom.
Maybe if you came to a BoD meeting, you could see what our agenda is, each and every meeting, and what we talk about, COMPLETELY open to any and all members... Dynamic Discs are running events, they give per/person money like any other vender, vending an event to the club. They are adding 500$ to a C tier event, they're running in March, that's not even required by the pdga. They want to run 10 more events here in the KC area. This opens up a ton more events for our members to participate in...!
Which is our focus, be the voice of our members...
This is a great thing for our Club members.
The Worlds and the Wide Open are not the same thing, please don't confuse them.
Yeah, I understood all the up-in-the-airness around some courses for the last worlds here. I didn't state it directly, but I think we should know right now which courses we're going to use next year if not even two years down the road. Even mention of Wyco for this year has me thinking "Oh sh..! So much to do!" But if called on, we'll get it done out there.
I don't know the WO course schedule this year or usage. I would much rather see Wyco used before Rosey though. I do think SMP should be used too, mostly because of the historical implications.
Why not? The Memorial does it. USDGC does it (unless they change it to make the course tougher), Hambrick, Des Moines, AM NATS, Steady Ed, Beaver State, The Majestic, Almost all of the NT stops are the same course each year, with pin placements in the same place. So why not us?
Certainly there is flexibility, but for the most part the courses on the NT stay the same with a tweak here and there from time to time, which is usually always done to make the course harder, so why not? What do we lose by stream lining what we have? If we really want to make the Wide Open the biggest and baddest, why not make it a three or four day tournament and include all the PRO level courses in the area? (WW, Swope, Rose, BV, Cliff, and maybe one or two of the Smithville courses) What would the pros think if they saw the size and scope of this tournament as a monster each and every year? Why not be the toughest yearly tournament to win? A marathon of disc golf on awesome courses. I think that would set us apart.
Allow me to interrupt this oh-so-brilliant discussion about Texan beans
Folks, in the years that we have ran the chili contest we have not had a judge be a participant and this year will be no different.
I will work with Eric on this as we have had some solid judges in the past.
County Legislator Scott Burnett has been a big advocate for disc golf locally, and regionally, with support of us on several NPR shows has been a judge for 6 years running now.
Wayne St. Vincent has been doing the judging as well for the last 4 years, and wayne is a business owner in the area that has helped as well with reaching out to other businesses to help ensure our voice is heard.
We have a few others that have sprinkled the scenery, including the Director of our Charity, Tom Turner, other chef's have hit it as well....
It should be consolation that your favorite non-revenue team bested my favorite non-revenue team at the Maui.
