Now maybe if you move up, you might get off the "kiddie" team. ;)
That's your team right SD, the "kiddie" team? I would have loved to have been there when Tom's daughter schooled ya at the Mac, how did that make you feel?

Tournaments / Re: 2014 Roc vs. Buzzz at Swope Park on September 20th

And you know what they say about assumptions! That was the date, Sept 20th 2014, I believe the date for 2015 is the question here.

How about if you can have the bee helplessly dangling in the Roc's talons? Now that would be a stamp worthy of all my Rocs!!

I guess for the other side you could make one of the bee stinging the Roc, but then the bee would die... it's a win win for the Roc!!!


Great idea for the discs, you guys already have art at the press?



I know the person who dyed this one, I doubt that he would have any problems with you using the design.

I may have taken some liberties with the dots but I did my best. You can sing 'em to this tune.



My apologies to anyone I may have offended referencing such an old sexist TV show.

You're welcome Rob, and I appreciate the fresh Maverick attitude you are bringing to the area. Kudos to you!

Not a resident Rob just a concerned disc golfer who lives in the area.

You missed my point completely Rob. It's not about how the Kanza DGC will affect your tournament but how your tournament is going to affect Kanza DGC, the closest course to my house.

It doesn't seem like you gave much thought to my concerns so I'll take them up with the Ottawa Parks Dept, they may take them a little more seriously. I'm sure they are going to love your "not central park" quote.

Yes, I cleared it with the city.  That is always my first step.

Most courses have limited parking that cannot accomodate a full tourney.  Centennial Lawrence, Longview Perry, Blue Valley KCMO for example.  We'll deal with it.

Tee pads are taking care of by utilizing flags and allowing people to tee from grass besides the tee pad or behind tee pad.  Personally, I think the pads are no big deal when you look at the size comparred to the amount of space you have when you are driving from a lye in a fairway (directly behind your disc / marker, 11", etc.)  If it is really bothersome, you can use the marked natural pad.

We will have alternate tee pads.  Short for Junior, Rec, Rec Women, Int. Women and maybe Adv. Grandmaster.  Long for others.  Some of the long tees will be the walking trail.  It is Ottawa, not Central Park.  It isn't that busy.

Players and pedestrians will need to be careful regarding each other as with any tournament.  Both can manage.  It will be OK.

Tournaments I intend to run will not be 'normal' tournaments on normal courses using the same ol', same ol'.  Grow the sport by providing alternate options to the same old thing.  Some will like it, others won't.  Vanilla and chocolate options.

Defiance Beer returns as a sponsor.  Yum.

Thank you.

Terrible course for a tournament, hope you've cleared this with Ottawa Parks. Very limited parking, no tee pads, a walking trail that gets plenty of traffic comes into play on 8 of the 18 holes and the kids playground can be hit with an errant shot on hole 9. Fun Fact: HeWho was the course designer.

Thanks Scott/Kujo, missed that. Threw out my shoulder at Rosey this afternoon and am using the Rush Limbaugh method of self medicating tonight (painkillers and Vodka Martinis!), doesn't grant me the license to be an ass. Sorry for the attitude in that post Nate and Dick.

Is this going to be just two divisions, or will there be Intermediate and Advanced divisions within the Amateur category?
By the looks of it, there will only be 1 division for ams.

According to the first post in this thread it's just the kids(ams) and us old goats(am masters) on the Am side. And Am side cash payouts would be a great and wonderfully novel concept!!! What's not mentioned is whether it's a PDGA sanctioned event or not, I'm curious about that.

Here's some pics from Saturday if you don't do the facebook.
