Tournaments / Re: Friday C-Tier, 3/29 - JDGC Two-Step

It's a holiday for several of us in the Joplin club as well so that's why we've started running an event on Good Friday the last couple of years. 

Tournaments / Friday C-Tier, 3/29 - JDGC Two-Step
« on: March 25, 2013, 05:23:38 pm »
Looking for a Friday C-Tier tune-up before the DUI, Emporia, or Tulsa events?  Head down to Neosho and Joplin for a round at each course on March 29th.  Yeah, our flyer is made in Microsoft Word but it's still 45 holes of disc golf and it'll be good practice for the A-Tier Four States at the end of September.  We plan to use the Neosho course this year for the 4SO along with the 36 hole layout at McClelland.

Thanks for the encouraging words KC guys. 

When thinking about moving up to an A-Tier tournament, we have always struggled to answer the questions "Why?" and "What are the benefits?"  Can you guys share your thoughts on this?  In my very limited conversations with only a few people from small clubs who have ran A-Tiers, most say it's not worth the hassle, the extra costs, the change in player expectations, etc. 

The 2012 Four States Open presented by Mother's Brewery is up to 82 paid pre-registered players so far over 12 divisions.  Pre-register at

We'll have the temp 9 set up to play next Tuesday night for our singles mini which starts at 5:30.  We'll also have the temp 9 set up for practice on Friday during the Friday Doubles event with $500 added cash.  Flex start time from Noon-6:00 PM. 

Again, don't forget about the $10 hotel voucher if you stay in a Joplin hotel.  Just bring us your receipt. 

Visit for all the details!

Well I think we'll take you up on your generous offer and hopefully convince you to play in the tourney too!  I'll PM you my cell phone # and so I can get your phone # too.  Thanks!

Tracy, where at on the west side of town?  I imagine we won't be getting into town until 9:00 or later and it sounds like heading your direction might add 30+ min to our drive so unfortunately WyCo league is out for us.

Anyone have an empty bed or couch to house two Joplinites this Friday night?  I've got a hiking air mattress so I could even survive on the floor.

Is DGCR still pretty accurate for Cliff Drive in terms of holes and layout?

I've played Cliff once and it was probably 3+ years ago so I just want to know if it's even remotely the same course from back then. 

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 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.

Please visit for all the details. Pre-registration is highly recommended and is available at This event is capped at 90 Pro/Advanced men & women and 90 Intermediate/Rec/Jr men & women.

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.

Saturday will consist of two 18 hole rounds for all divisions on the permanent 27 hole McClelland Park course with an additional temp 9 added as usual. Sunday will be one round of either 18 or 27 for all divisions, depending on turnout, followed by a Final 9 for the Top 4 MPO players.

The FREE PLAYERS PARTY will be held Saturday night at Blackthorn Pizza & Pub in downtown Joplin with free Blackthorn Pizza and Hackett Hot Wings for all players, including all minors. Me Like Bees ( 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.

The players pack for all Am players should consist of two discs, a dri-fit polo, and a JDGC sharpie. All JR and Rec divisions are TROPHY ONLY and will have a bonus CFR disc and $10 DGM voucher added to their players pack. All Pro players packs will consist of a CFR disc and a JDGC sharpie only.

Spread the word, pre-register, and get ready for the 2012 Four States Open presented by Mother's Brewery!!!
