Here is a small tribute I wrote as part of a club piece to honor our friend Matt Fox.

"Short" ... lol

415 average per hole.  Just a light fairway, or hard mid, right Dick?


"Short" ... lol

Thank you to everyone who came out this weekend and played in the 2017 Kansas City Flying Disc Club Championships! We had a total of 130 KCFDC members who played at least 1 round this weekend. Of those 130 players, 73 of them stuck it out for the entire 4 round event. Thank you for all the volunteers who helped out this weekend, from registration/check-in to course preparation.
Congratulations Arturo Villarreal for winning the 2017 Kansas City Flying Disc Club Championships! Your final score of 201 bested the field to win your 3rd title!
Also, congratulations to all the Trophy Winners in their respective flight! You’re personalized trophy disc will be available to pick up at the club elections, Nov. 4, 2017 @ Old Pike Country Club. Your bag tags will also be available at that time! Remember to RSVP and let us know you intend one attending. It’s FREE for all current club members.

Can one pay their '18 dues online?

If you pay your dues online and you are already current, I will simply add an additional year to your membership.

As long as you are current through the rest of 2017, you are more than welcome to play by just checking in at Rosedale. If you want to play for your 2018 bag tag, you'll need to sign up for the following year prior to showing up that Saturday. All members who join/renew as of Oct. 1, will be current until Dec 31, 2018.

You love that thing so much....I've never seen anyone dislike their bag so much as you do with this one.  I can attest it is EXTREMELY lightly used...I think that 10x may be about 5x too much in all honesty

I've played at least 10 rounds with him while he b1tcht (used) the bag.

I will be posting pin positions by next weekend. You can find them here, on the FB Group page as well as

Current KCFDC Membership List

This year, in honor of Swope Park and it's final year as a Kansas City staple for disc golf, we are going to play the "classic" KCFDC courses. We are going to start out at Rosedale Park on Saturday morning, playing both the Up Top course and the Down Under course. On Sunday, we will cross the border to Missouri, where we will play Water Works park, finishing off our weekend with a pseudo Swope gold for what we believe may be the final time. While the course won't be filled with all that gold rope we will make sure to plant our foot on every inch of Swope Park to make sure you as a KCFDC member will get a chance to be a part of history. We will have a small gathering after the final round to say goodbye to Swope as a club for the final time. If you happen to finish your round at Water Works, we hope you make the trip over to Swope to join us.

Here is the schedule (subject to change):

Saturday Oct. 21, 2017
Round 1
 Rosedale Park (Up & Down)
Check In: 8 AM - 9 AM (no late arrivals will be allow)
Tee (shotgun) 9:30 AM
Round 2 - Rosedale Park (Up & Down)
Tee (shotgun) TBA *will allow at least 1 hour from last card turned in for lunch.

After the first two rounds, the field will be flighted by scores, with the winner of each flight, after playing all four rounds, receiving a trophy. We will post pool assignments for the second round on Saturday night. You can also find them at the club Facebook page and on the forum. Club members who cannot play all four rounds are encouraged to play any or as many of the rounds as they can. The afternoon rounds will tee off no earlier than one hour after the final card is turned in from the previous round.

KCFDC Individual memberships now includes a bag tag, and for new members only, a KCFDC mini disc. Individual Memberships are $25 and Family memberships are now $40 and include two bag tags. The cost of additional tags for family members listed as club members is $5. This means that everyone who renews their membership for the 2018 year will automatically be playing for a bag tag position. If you do not play any rounds then you will be on a first come, first serve. Tags will be available at the Club Elections/Dinner. The final place to pick them up after that is TBD.
