It hasn't been posted yet. We are using Swope Gold for sure. We are finalizing our 2nd location.

The biggest thing is that we now have these awesome websites that do registration for us. In that we can set them up with limited fields in each division. Since we limit the total field of players, we need to guess what divisions will likely be there. In the past it was all done on a spreadsheet and we were responsible. Technology has made things much easier in a way. That being said if something isn't "offered" it's because of the past registrants.  If you say you want to play, then we just have to adjust our numbers from other divisions to make it work feasibly. Hopefully that makes the process a little easier to understand. Or not.

Divisions that will not be offered at first will be things like Legends and Female Pro Grand Masters, as those are not something we typically get. Those will be offered if someone requests the division though.

Most every division will be offered in the registration process. There will be some not offered initially due to history of registrants. If you are in that camp, you may contact us and let us know you are interested in said division and it will be added. As we get closer to the event, if the division has not received enough people, you will be asked whether or not you want to go to another division that you qualify for or if you want a refund.

2016 Kansas City Wide Open - May 6-8, 2016

The 2016 Kansas City Wide Open is returning to the PDGA National Tour lineup. Registration will open 1/4/16. Per the PDGA National Tour guidelines, registration will be tiered, beginning with the TOP-rated players and then working its way down until any active PDGA member may register. The KC Wide Open National Tour event includes only the Pro Men (MPO) and Pro Women (FPO) divisions, with a field limit of 72 players.
As usual, there will also be a concurrent A-Tier going on with all the aged-based Pro divisions and field limit of 72 players.
We are also excited to announce a significant change in this year's KCWO. In lieu of an Amateur event, we are adding a Performance Flight to the mix. The KCWO Performance Flight will be identical to the USDGC Performance Flight that was introduced a few years ago in Rock Hill, South Carolina except that you will not need to qualify for the Wide Open. However, you will need to be a current PDGA member with an established rating. Since using a ratings-based formula is used to calculate projected scores, there is a minimum rating allowed of 875. If you are rated below 875 and want to play, you will have to play the event with an 875 calculated score. If you do not have an established rating, you will have to play the event with a 1000-rated projected score.
The Performance side will be a trophy-only event. However, each player will receive an extremely well thought out players' package unlike anything the KCWO has ever offered before. Our hope is that you will leave here feeling that we provided you with an elite tournament experience.
Like for the NT, registration will be tiered...except from the bottom up. This will allow players of lower-skill levels the opportunity to sign up first. The Peformance Flight will be limited to 144 players. Look for updated information on our Facebook page and at

Business model? Ok. I was just being real. Sorry it doesn't fit in to the "Paid Amateur" model people want. I'm an event planner. I would rather give back to every player with a massive event then give a few amateurs a payday. But what do I know?

I have a better suggestion. No more payouts for Ams. Sorry not sorry, I know it isn't a popular opinion but we are one of the few if not only Am sporting events with a payout.

I understand that in this day in age we want information and we want it now. If you could just allow the pieces to fall into place, we will surely get that information out asap. Thanks for your understanding.

You would need to contact them. We typically don't let companies advertise here on the forum.

Ok. I will get them down to DD this weekend.

If the key is a gray Honda key and the pill case has what looks like a golf flag painted on it, they may be mine. I lost them out at SMP over the summer. Then again, most likely not as they were only my spare keys.

The pill case has nothing on it but if you lost it over the summer it may have washed off. It is a Honda key and there are multiple coupon key ring things on it like hy-vee and what not. If you would like I can hold them for you or drop them off somewhere for you to pick up.

As much as I do not think the Chiefs bye week should come into play and the championships should simply be set every year to a specific week, like the 1st weekend in Nov.  With so many football games being played on Thursday's and Monday's perhaps those should be also considered if the Chiefs have one scheduled next year during the time frame considered.

I agree with Duane.  As a club, a date should be picked and set.  Not all disc golfers are NFL watchers.

No, not all DGrs watch NFL but over the years it has weighed in on many club members decision to play or not play. So it is a consideration. We have been doing the club championships for many years now and with some success. I'm not going to change the way we pick it as the Bye Schedule has historically been a favorable weekend within the large majority of players. Had the conversation been continued last year when it was first brought up earlier in the year it would have not been an issue like it was this year. We are a volunteer organization and people get busy and let things slip. This happened and hopefully next year it will be scheduled in a more timely manner.

I was cleaning out my car and found a set of keys that someone handed to me during the Club Championships. I personally don't think it was anyone from the event but if anyone knows of someone who lost their keys out there, I may have them.

They have a lot of keychain scan cards on it and also a silver pill case. With what looks like "ibuprofen". Anyone, if this is yours let me know and I'll figure out how to get it back to you.
