I don't think the tiny town of Carterville, MO could handle Jack Lowe!

I believe all of us in SWMO will agree with that statement. 

Come on down if you've never been.  This will be the Four States to be at for sure.  There's always a good turnout for the Masters divisions.

I'm planning on driving up for Joplin for this event but I won't know 100% for sure until late next week.  Would you still rather me pre-register a day or two before the event or just show up the day of?

Ams pay $35, get a disc and a shirt, and the rest of the entry fee goes to the fundraiser, correct?  What kind of disc?  Cotton or dri-fit shirt?  How is the $45 entry fee for Pro's being paid out? 

I've only played Cliff once about 3 years ago and I'm excited to come play it again.

If you are staying in a Joplin hotel, don't forget about the $10 JDGC voucher you receive if you bring in your hotel receipt. Hotel options are numerous in Joplin with some of the best disc golf rates provided at Microtel ($47Q/$54QQ), Quality Inn ($69QQ), and Towneplace Suites ($89QQ, sleeps 5). Just mention the Four States Open Disc Golf Tournament to receive these rates.

Visit www.joplindgc.com/4SO to find the rest of the lodging options in Joplin that gave our event participants a special rate.

The Players Pack this year for Every AM will consist of Two Discraft Discs, A Metal Mini, A Dri-Fit T-Shirt, and A Sharpie.  That's around a $70 Value for your $25-$45 entry fee, plus our excellent payout at the end!!!


The disc choices are:
D Challenger
D Magnet
D Soft Magnet
X Buzzz
Z Avenger
Z Buzzz
Z Comet
Z Force
Z Nuke OS
Z Surge SS
ESP Avenger SS
ESP Buzzz
ESP Nuke
ESP Surge

Don't forget, Rec Players receive A Bonus CFR Disc and A $10 Voucher in their Trophy-Only division.

We should have our hotel rates sheet by the end of next week so I can update you then.  The PDGA discount hotels are probably the safest bet though.

We'll definitely have some sort of events going on at the players party.  Blackthorn will be packed though, so no indoor putting contest.  We might just have to do an urban putting contest...  Blackthorn has several pinball machines and other arcade games along with a pool table so there will be plenty going on. 

What do the KC guys and gals like to do for other players party events?

The 7th Annual 4SO presented by Mother's Brewery will be held September 29th & 30th in Joplin, MO. This year's tournament is a PDGA B-Tier event with $4,000 added cash to the Pro division's payout! We have partnered with both Mother's Brewery out of Springfield and Blackthorn Pizza and Pub in Joplin to make this year's event the best 4SO to date.

The Friday doubles tourney will take place on September 28th with $500 added cash between the three divisions offered (Pro, Adv, & Rec). The flex start time is from 12-6 PM with unlimited rounds. Entry fees for the dubs is $20 per player for Pro and $10 per player for Adv or Rec.

Me Like Bees (www.facebook.com/melikebees) will be playing exclusively for our players party as well. The party should run sometime around 6-8 PM on Saturday night. Mother's will be on tap and discounted for purchase along with the usual Blackthorn assortment of refreshments.

Tournaments / 4/6 - April Two-Step, Neosho & Joplin, MO - C-Tier
« on: March 29, 2012, 12:56:45 AM »
If anyone is looking for a disc golf weekend next weekend, the Joplin Disc Golf Club is having the April Two-Step next Friday, April 6th.  We'll be playing in Neosho first and then Joplin for the 2nd round.  This is a no frills added event so come get some ratings and play some low key disc golf at the same time. 

On Saturday, there are two other area events, one in Fayetteville with the Razorback Classic and the other in Tulsa with the Tulsa Pro-Am.

Not having a RoF was completely my fault.  We got pinched for time after the longer 3rd round and the pro's were ready to roll for the Final 9 very shortly after the last scorecards were being turned in.  We should have had it after the Final 9 though, definite lesson learned here. 

I also know we ordered at least a few 160's and light 170's in most all of the 10 models of discs we had to choose from for the two disc players pack.  I've still got a couple 160g Stalkers and 170g Forces left if you need to trade out something.

At a BIG event and if there are BIG pros there, I would rather play one less round and watch the pro's play their final round or final 9.  I was more than bummed at the 28th WO when we weren't going to get to watch the Pro's play at all after driving several hours to play in the tourney.  I also think there should be a clear divide between AM & Pro divisions with the # of rounds played, to provide more incentive to play up.  Don't try and man-up an AM format and then act all tough because you completed the 4th round better than lesser Am's.  That's just being silly, you're an AM, you ain't tough...

As for the players pack, I would think a minimum includes a disc and shirt or something along those lines.  If ya gotta skim from the entry fee to make that happen, that's cool.  But don't take $15 out of my entry fee for a disc that costs $6.  The prices of tourney stamped discs are available to everyone so that's just dumb and shady to me.  If you can do more in the players pack, great, but don't do it at the expense of an average payout.

As an out-of-towner (Joplin), the trophy only for Advanced kept me from playing in the 29th WO all-together.  I was skeptical I would get my moneys worth out of the players pack because of the 28th Wide Open, my first one ever, when I got an ABC putter as the disc and a heavy-weight dri-fit (both unusable items).  I did play in Worlds the year before though and I do understand the time and money contrstaints the 28th WO fell under the year after Worlds.  I'm not dogging anything, I'm just presenting the out-of-towner view as a 935ish rated Advanced player who would drop almost anything if there was a chance to go play several KC courses. 

So for me to play, Advanced needs to have a nice payout and a non-crappy players pack.  (We do both in Joplin for our annual event, so I know taking care of the Pros AND Am's can be done.)

We installed all 28 Monkey Trap baskets yesterday at McClelland Park in Joplin.  The park is in terrific shape and the course looks great!

There's even word we may have the FPO division make this year...

Don't forget the players party is at the Holiday Inn and you get a $10 merch voucher for each night you stay in a Joplin hotel.

They're pretty close to being completed.  Some of the parts are already at the powder-coater and then it's just assembly and installation after that.  This week should give us a good indication of when they'll be done.

We've never had more than MPO and MPM fields before.  Last year with 8 in MPO and 6 in MPM we did a 75/25 split on the added cash.  We definitely favor a much, much larger % of the added cash going to MPO versus any other divisions.  Can't really tell you how it'll split out this year yet because we're trying to attract a larger # of pro's which may increase the # of divisions.
