I made 12 for $125. So more like $11 each. Although if you use better chain it will cost you about $25.

This made me have an idea. What about an "In the Bag" paragraph, song, sentence (for those who carry 5 discs)? The goal or challenge is to tell a story, write a sentence or make/remake a song using the discs in your bag.

Ok, it's kind of stupid but let's see if anyone does it. :)

Free beer? I totally found it for you. You're welcome.

This thread makes me embarrased to be a part of the KCFDC.  Anyone else?

No, The club is not responsible for what people say online. The Club allows us to be able to argue like school children. Please go look around at other clubs and what they talk about in their forums. We are not that bad. Just a debate that I think is one big spinning wheel. You may however be embarrassed to be a human. I know I am occasionally.

So you're saying there is a spot for me? Doh!

I know you're referring to the east west thing.  Yes I wanted to know why women were excluded but that's because the kcfdc approved the event with women playing and then changed the format excluding women without going to the board.  But you have never asked my motivation.  You might want to read all the threads about how women were excluded, which was kind of backhanded and then Tracy just said that's the way it is.  Still not sure why the board didn't approve the change in format since it's a kcfdc sanctioned event.

No one is excluded from the East vs. West Challenge. Everyone has the same opportunity to qualify and play. It's OPEN for anyone and everyone.

As for the Leader Board. Yes, everyone is right and I totally screwed the pooch there. I checked them all out the Saturday before the event and realized I couldn't get the crap off. Instead of doing my due diligence of finding someone to help me fix it I went on to the next fire and started putting out those flames and failed to go back and fix the problem. I'm sorry and I know that totally was a bone head move. I should have put that higher on my priority list. Lesson learned for sure. I felt like an idiot during the final 9, trust me.

The lunch/hospitality tent was a HUGE success. I thought there would be more push back by not having a party but my staff and I agree that being able to go to sleep on Saturday night was a gift to us. And we also were able to feed every person (most at least) that played the event, a quality meal 2 days in a row for the same cost as the party. I was so happy that worked out. Now I want to improve on that experience.

Nova mentioned me yelling at the crowds instead of a PA system. I did have one. Sunday was a crappy day for me. I came under an abrupt illness that shut me down for most of the morning/day. I worked through it slowly. At the moment we should have been setting up the PA, it was beginning to rain and I was just coming around to life again. I could barely see straight and I had not eaten since the morning breakfast that did me in. I didn't get my crew assembled and I didn't even know what to do with the rain coming down. I didn't know if it would last and I wasn't going to risk borrowed equipment that I had no room in my budget to replace. Things happen and that day everything seemed to happen at once. Sorry about that too.

As for the courses, I think they were set exactly the way I wanted them. The flow was perfect and everything seemed to go to plan. BV was the only course I was unhappy about. In hind sight I would have scratched that and went with a more manicured and easy to practice/follow course. Lesson learned.

On the outside the event went wonderfully. I saw more happy faces than frowns (other than peoples golf games) and I had more compliments than complaints. <- That is a SHOCKER!!

On the inside the event was one mistake after another. I was unhappy with many things that I planned to shine on. It still bothers me. The stress of running an event like this is something many of you will never understand. I don't expect you too.

I hope that most people saw the good and ignored the bad because what we did do good, we did great. Decisions I made as far as my vision of the event were a bigger success than I could ever of imagined. I'm so glad that everyone walked away feeling as if they were at a Top Tier event that other events should look to as a standard. (Others comments not mine)

Mostly, I have to thank each person that helped. I know I can't do this on my own. At some point in the coming days I will acknowledge everyone of you but for now I have to clean up the mess I have lying on my floor. Hopefully, my lowe message is not to loweish and you read to the end because I have to say this one last thing.

THANK YOU KANSAS CITY! You my friends are the best community in disc golf. You are the reason we are great. You made this happen and you continue to make it happen. If I decide to do this again, I will be better suited but I will still screw it up.

Sorry if someone answered this already, but where can I pick up my voucher from the tournament?

I think you are Shane Diersen. If so, I did try to contact you this evening. Feel free to call me back and I can tell you how to redeem your voucher. Thanks.

Please be patient as I had to work today bright and early and I haven't even unloaded my car. I plan on going through everything over the next day or two and contacting everyone who has something still in limbo with information on what/when/and where. If you do not hear from me by Friday feel free to contact me directly.
