Also,  I believe there are a lot of people that would like to earn a spot to play in this thing, and only 16 spots available.  So, if there is enough interest from women and juniors on both sides, I vote we just add 4 extra spots and play 20 vs 20.  But I am not going to go out recruiting women and kids.  If you want to play, speak up.



But remember ladies, this is not just a casual day on the course with the gals.  This is Blue vs. Black, West vs. East, Kansas vs. Missouri....where winning is everything.

If I get the job of leading the west side again, this is what I would suggest for West Side Qualifying.  You East siders can fill your team however you want. 

16 players - 4 alternates

6 spots given to Top 6 finishers at Kan-U-Wyco or Rosedale Open, TBD. 

6 spots given to Lowest scores at one chosen league on the Kansas side, TBD.

4 spots given at a last chance Qualifier, open to all west side participants.  But will be played in Match-play format.  Names drawn from hat and put into Bracket.  9-hole Matches.  Winners move on until there remain only 4.  Course TBD.

4 Captains picks.

All 12 Qualifiers from the first 2 qualifying events are guaranteed to play all 3 rounds of Team Challenge, unless they can't play or want to sit out a round.  The 4 Captains picks and last 4 qualifiers will get to play at least 1 round and up to 3.  It wasn't a problem on our team last year, but I believe some East siders were pretty bummed that they qualified and didn't get to play all 3.  This will make it easier for the Captain to ask people to sit out a round.

I know you are all going to throw out opinions on how the last chance match-play qualifier would be hard to work.  And causes a headache.  But it would be my headache if I was running it.  I believe it would be fun for players to have to win those last spots by a different format than just low score.  And besides, anyone can beat anyone in Match-play, as we seen Jake Bowen beat me in the singles round  :o

Saturday alternate shot course on the Kansas side:

Heritage Park (If finished)
or
Lakeside

1st weekend in June was a pretty solid weekend last year to run this event.  Hope that works again.

What courses are ready?

Water Works
BV
Swope
Cliff?
Rosey
Wyco
Wilber
Smithville

I would love to see ww and 2 courses at smithy used. Are 2 of them good enough? What about ww, smithv and liberty!?

I favor a 3 day event. I can't really justify taking more than a day off for golf. One of the reasons Im not going to GBO. Thursday we could have 1 round flex starts if people want competition for 4 days.

absolutely hate the notion of the Thu/Fri/Sat deal, thanks.

My thought process really is trying to decide if I want to take time off to pay a city and join for an event that only gives me 3 rounds that they basically are requiring me to be at for 4 days.

I am waning on attending as are many others.

This isn't the model to replicate in my mind.

As a person that has ran a Wide Open 5x, I may not have decision making powers but I will give and list my opine regardless!   ;D

Nor is Jack deciding what courses will be used. 
Nor will any of the courses on the outskirts of the city be used good as they may be.
Nor will any of it matter UNLESS YOU WANT TO RUN THE EVENT YOURSELF.

Just vote on the poll folks, that's all he has asked for.

At this point Water Works will be used. That I can say for certain. I'm probably going to use Swope as well. As for any other courses, that is still up in the air. Starting in January I will be calling on anyone who would like to be involved again or for the first time to meet with us and help decide the future. We had great meetings last year that seemed to help make for a strong event. We will continue that practice.

We are not even talking about courses here, we are not DD, and this is not the GBO. Nor is their model the reason they have 900 people. You are brainwashed to think that they poop gold.

But thank you for your input.
