Or 527 feet. That's what just happened in the desert in the hands of Simon Lizote. Damn you! I thought I was cool with my 300 footer. :(

Bag Tags / 2015 Bag Tags
« on: October 16, 2014, 02:20:55 pm »
Ok, so I have finally caught up with the Club Championships and am ready to let you know what tag you will likely be starting 2015 off with. I say likely because from now until the November 15th Club Elections, I am hoping that most of you will take the time out to make sure you are on the list if you paid. Now, I will say that if you are not on this list and you think you paid, you probably are wrong. But you will need to contact me so we can figure out why you aren't on the list. If there are any questions, please let me know so we can get it figured out.

As for distribution goes, you may pick up your bag tag at the 2014 Club Election, Nov. 15. 2014. If you are in a tie with another person, it is a first come first serve basis. I know a few of you have had a "play-off" for the tag in a tie situation and that is fine. But I don't know or care what the turn out was. You just need to make sure you worked it out with the other player before picking up your tag.

2014 Kansas City Flying Disc Club Championships - October 11-12

This event is FREE for all current KCFDC members. If you are not current, you can always sign up at either DDKC, DGW, or the day of the event. Please bring Cash or Check (made out to "KCFDC"). Also having the current form printed off and filled out helps.

Here we are again. Time to find out who is the best of the best in Kansas City. Due to the amount of people who showed up for the 1st round last year, I have decided to start us out at Rosedale Park. This way we can use both courses to facilitate an abundance of golfers. So both rounds on Saturday will be at Rosedale. You will either play Up-Top or Down-Under in your first round. Then you will play the other course during your second round.

Then on Sunday we will play at Waterworks and Blue Valley. This is where it gets tricky. You will need to check here, Facebook, or your email to find out where you will need to go to play in the morning. Then we will switch courses in the afternoon. If you are unsure or miss all of out attempts to communicate with you, please get to one of the courses early in the morning so you can find out if you chose correctly. Hopefully you will be able to figure it out. I will do my best to make sure you know. Water Works will be the finishing course for the top cards. Hopefully that will help you figure out where to go.

Remember folks, you DO NOT need to play every round. You can come out for 1 round, 2 rounds, 3 rounds or all 4. But if you intend to only play 1 or 2 rounds here an there, please let me or whoever is running your course know. It will make everything go so much easier.

Now, obviously this is a new format this year. I just want to see how it works being the fact that our club is getting so much bigger. I need to find a way to keep 140+ players off one course at a time. While we somehow made it work last year, I don't want to go through that again.


Check in for Saturday and Sunday morning will be 8:00-9 AM. If you are playing an afternoon round only, please be at the course early to get checked in. I will try to post afternoon start times here and on the KCFDC Facebook page.

Saturday 10-11:
Round 1 - Rosedale Park - 9:30 am
Round 2 - Rosedale Park - TBA

Sunday 10-12:
Round 3 - A-POOL Blue Valley - 9:30 am / B-POOL Water Works - 9:30 am
Round 4 - A-POOL Water Works - TBA / B-POOL Blue Valley - TBA

We will also be taking payment for your 2015 Bag Tag. You must PREPAY for the bag tag to be included in the initial distribution of tags. Winning the event will NOT get you an exemption. You must pay to play. I will reveal next years tag at the event and they will be distributed at the KCFDC Elections. Date TBD.

If you have any further questions you may call me at DGW 816-471-3472. Or email me at

Lastly, I want to apologize for not having a flyer created for this event. I will have something up for the courses soon, although I have been a little too busy to make anything pretty.

32nd Annual Kansas City Wide Open - June 20-22, 2014

Once again, we are part of the PDGA National Tour Elite Series. We will be seeing some of the best players in our game, shredding OUR courses that we know like the back of our hands. BUT, in order to do that, we need all the help and support we can get. This can be done two different way.
  • Volunteer
  • Sponsorship

I need YOU... to do something. I'll have a way for you to sign up soon at At that point you can let me know what days you are available and what times you can work when I need you to. What you can do for now is help me get as much sponsorship money as we can so we can give the best and most professional event possible.

Which leads to...

Download the Tri-Fold Sponsorship Form here. You can also pick a nicely printed version from me at Disc Golf World. I will try to get a more web-friendly version up soon.

I know everyone wants more details about the event and I will get to that soon. First things, first. Sponsors. Help me, help Kansas City.

Thank you!

-Dick Parker, 2014 KC Wide Open Tournament Director

Tournaments / KCWO Artwork
« on: February 19, 2014, 12:03:47 pm »
Hey everyone. I am looking for ideas for 2014 KCWO artwork. This will be featured on the Teeshirt and disc. I have an artist who I trust will do a great job and do it in a timely manner. I am just looking for ideas or concepts for me to get started.

Please take a minute and tell me what you think might look cool for this year's design. Thanks in advance!

Today is the Hott Shott Championships at Disc Golf World. We are an official Hott Shott location. You have from 9am-6pm to come down and get your official round in to compete as a State and National Champion, in your gender/age group, in this fun indoor putting game.

What is Hott Shott?
Hott Shott is a new, fun, and challenging disc golf game of skill. From five stations ranging in length from 5 to 25 feet, players throw five easy-to-throw"Frisbee-like" disc (light weight Innova Sonics), trying to make as many as possible into a disc golf basket. Each game consists of two runs or innings for a total of 50 throws. Points are awarded for each throw with 1050 being the highest possible score.

All the score of the day will be sent in to the Hott Shott headquarters, where they will determine who is the State and National Champions! All Champions will receive a printable certificate declaring you dominance. They are also giving out prizes to National Winners.

Is there a Fee?
Yes, we are running this as a fund raiser for the Kansas City Ice Bowl. It is $3 for one try or $5 for two. Kids under 12 play for free up to 2 times.

So, Hott Shott, what are you waiting for? Come gives us your best shott!

Bag Tags / Sneak Peak of the 2013 Bag Tag
« on: October 22, 2012, 05:33:45 pm »
For those of you who have been around the past few years, you know that I try my best to make the tags as interesting as possible. I don't want to do the same tag every year.

We have seen our fair share of Mad Cows, Floating Space courses, Actual non floating real life courses, and cool metal tags with old tournament logos... Sooo, what to do to make this year stand out?  Leather... Who doesn't like a nice piece of hide? So I really hope everyone likes what I have come up with... If not?  Well there is always 2014. I was told we will have the tags for the Club Elections and I am going to go ahead and say they will. BUT, until then here is a taste of what they look like.
