I will not have the complete CC set up until the week before. Most holes will be set in the CC placements, but not at all. Some holes have the red practice pin in the CC placment and the flags are longer for a longer option. I am sure CC players can handle that since PDGA players only expect the course set the week before NT or A tier events.

I know I'm probably being wildly optimistic here....but are you planning on setting the course for the CC by this weekend? 


It's seems to be a trend to play as slow a round as possible in tournaments.  Pick up the pace folks.  It has far less to do with pre-throw routine than it does with so many people walking the course like they are helping their 105 year old grandma around.  This isn't casual rounds people.  Slow play, which includes moving from shot to shot and green to tee, is a violation of the rules.  Refer to the competition manual, which you got in your PDGA packet.:

I completely agree Tracy.  I like to play a round in 70-90 minutes, so playing a tournament round that's 3+ hours (and sometimes 4+ hours) can be absolutely brutal.  While I understand there's going to be slower play in tournaments, especially  in full tournaments with a variety of skill levels, the duration of many rounds seems to border on the extreme. 

Given that it only takes one slow group to hold up several behind them, I would love to see tournament officials discuss speed of play in the players meeting.  Let everyone know that if a group comes up on a hole 15 minutes behind the group in front of them, and an official is present, they'll be receiving a warning.  If they don't speed it up, stroke em!  Addressing this proactively before rounds would help set the tone, since I would imagine warnings and strokes for pace of play are very rare.  Additionally, I believe quicker rounds would add to the overall enjoyment of an event like the KCWO, as it would allow more time at the end of the day to enjoy various other KCWO activities, instead of just wanting to go home after 7 hours of competition over two rounds.

I know its still a ways off, but does anyone know what the layout will be for the KC Corporate Challenge at Swope, and when the baskets will be moved to this set-up?

How many have signed up so far?


This is Kevin.  If you're still looking for a partner for dubs I can play with you tomorrow.  I get off work around 5 so I could get started around 5:30.

HA! Schusterik shot a 44 on Baby Blue....that's absurd.

Will be be playing in our respective divisions both rounds, or will there be a mixed card for the first round?

Are the holes going to be moved from their current configuration before the H2Open?

Found and Lost / MORE lost in Smithville

My buddy lost 3 discs out at Smithville

Beaver Creek-
Hole 3- Yellow Star Destroyer to the right of the hole in the tall grass.
Unknown hole- Yellow Star Valkyrie

Hole 18- Red Elite Z Nuke in the water on the right.  He's a lefty and attempted a big anhyzer, but it straightened out and went right into the water, probably 300' from the tee.

Thanks Jack.  I would also be willing to pick up my glass, no shipping needed.  In regards to the DD shirt, I checked in around 12:30 on Friday at Blue Valley and the DD trailer wasn't there.  Becky indicated she wasn't sure where they were, so I'm not sure if they showed up later.

Thanks to Jack and all the people who put on the KCWO.  I did have a question about the AM players pack.  Jack, you referenced in an earlier post that the Ams would receive a voucher for a shirt from Dynamic Discs and an etched glass from LS Discs.  I don't believe either of these items were available when I checked in at Blue Valley on Friday.  Are they still floating around somewhere?  Thanks.
