Statistically, west side seems to have an edge winning four consecutive times.I'll do my research to support my theory next.

What difference does it make?

Okay, you don't care.  We get it.

I do care and you should know better than to accuse me of not caring.  That being said, take a look at the statistics from last weekend Jose.  The Lawrence players didn't cost us the tournament...



Lawrence:
Lazzo 1-2
Wisbey 1-2
Martin 1-1-1
Heinen 1-1-1
Atwater 1-1
Cooper (Some would call Tonganoxie-Lawrence) 1-2
Total  6-2-9

Lawrence didn't win the West.  But we love those guys either way.  Babbit, Liz, and Clemons won (9-0).  But don't worry, Clemons is a true Missourian, and I'm sure you will have him back before too long.  But we want Shanan back when that happens, cuz I know he bleeds blue.
Until then, like Tracy said, it is  "which side is better".  Why should it matter whether we have a few better players.  KU always had better players than Mizzou.  Mizzou didn't whine, (too much), they just tried to play their best to beat them, and once in a while that would happen.  Maybe that will happen for you guys....someday.

First of all, congrats to the West Side for their comeback victory and thanks to the captains for administering the Team  Challenge.

I'm not overly concerned that the. Lawrence players played for the West Side,  but you can't say they didn't have an impact on the West Side victory.  I don't think anyone would argue the players from Lawrence are strong.  Both captains knew this, and it affected how matchups were selected. If you replaced the Lawrence players with another group, it's likely those players would be weaker and would have a greater probability of losing matches than the players they replaced.

Once again, congrats on 4 in a row for the West Side.  I look forward to 2017 and I'd love the opportunity to captain the East Side to victory next year.

General Banter / Pat "Stally"Stallbaumer
« Last post by Kevin Montgomery on June 21, 2016, 09:17:22 am »
USM Ace Fund League will be happening this evening - 6/21/16.

We will be celebrating the life of Patrick 'Stally" Stallbaumer. Those who knew him know that he was relatively new to disc golf but he loved it and played with us at USM and elsewhere as often as possible. He even made the trip down to Emporia for a very windy GBO a few years back. He brought up the rear in his division but had a great time doing so.

Stally passed away Sunday after a brief fight with cancer. He passed on the same day the KCFDC lost one of its most beloved and best disc golfers, Todd Henry. I know most will be headed to Swope tonight to celebrate Todd's life and contribution to disc golf in KC but for those who can't make it in there and to those who knew Stally and would like to celebrate with us please feel free to join us. We will most certainly be sharing stories about both Stally and Todd as we get in a fun round of 18 at USM this evening.

It's a sad week for disc golf in KC....  But rather than be sad, let's lift up those who we lost in celebration of what they did for us in life.

USM lost one of our own the same day Todd passed. I would love to be at Swope to celebrate our friend but I will be running USM ace fund league tonight to celebrate and honor the memory of Patrick "Stally" Stallbaumer. He started playing with us at USM just a few years ago and fell in love with the game. He passed Sunday from cancer the same day we lost Todd. Rough week for disc golf in KC and friends of both Todd and Stally. Have fun tonight at Swope.

I apologize if there has been confusion on the time of the event. The page itself would not let me put in the correct time, but i finally was able to get that fixed.
The official time for the event is 10-4. I will probably be there earlier, but just in case, expect 10-4 with 4pm being the last time you can tee off.

After the event, i will calculate the scores and announce the winner of the event.

There is 1 official overall winner.

Divisions:
Overall (Winner Package)
Casual (Just for fun, but entered into a drawing so you have the same chance at winning something as everyone else in that divisions)

Here's the data.  West should win based on ratings.  But those aren't everything and east-side needed only 3.5 matches out of a total of 32 competed.
West Side                                          East Side                 
Clemons         1008                            Mike Murphy   985
Arturo             994                             Eastwood        976
Justin 2names 983                             Matt Perry       973* 
Isaac H.          983                             Shanan C.       973*
Cory Sharp      983                            CD Steiner       972
Cooper A.        977                            Jose O.            967
Jake Lazzo       976                            Tyler Mattoon  966
Joe Hesting      971                            Jordan H.        959
Bobby V          969                             Fred Smith      959
Kevin Zane      967                             Mike T.           959
Peter B            965                             Jake B.           952                     
Mark Wisbey    957                             Dresser          950*         
Kelly Babbit     957                             Jamie L.         949
Dick P.            953                             GI Dave         938* 
Kitz                 950                            CJ Hucke        932
Lee K.             946                             Kevin M.        931
Kaleb Martin    946                             Zeke H.         927
Matt Jenkins    932                             Ryan K.         923*
Stracke           927                             Travis T.        909
Liz                  788                             Tavish           851 
Average          956                                                 947                   

Here is my explanation of the last 4 years and it's not about ratings, but it may be indirectly resulted from that data.   West side has more players that play in PDGA tournaments.  East side has 5 players that are not current in the PDGA and don't play in tournaments (marked as *).  Also, I know myself and Mike Murphy have played in only 1 tournament (each) this year.  East side that's not enough.  We need to play more tournaments.

The other reason that I think the west side has won the last 4 is that Joe H. has had 4 years of setting up these matches and has the most experience doing it.  The east side has had a new captain each year.     

And finally, Thanks Joe and Zeke.  You guys did great.

A few things wrong with these thoughts. First off, Shanon, GI, Perry,  and Dresser are a few of your strongest competitors. They are ones we have to match up against carefully. Also, Joe has been captain for 2 years now. That's it. Tracy was the captain before that.

I do love this event more than any other, and I love all my Missouri friends just as much as my Kansas ones.  Thank you all for the fun competition, and I will get the 2012 Missouri champs moved back to the front of the trophy! 

P.S.  Maybe next year you should go back to your home, Waterworks.  The only place you win.

And quit playing so many best-shot doubles over there.  Start working on your singles game:)

Statistically, west side seems to have an edge winning four consecutive times.I'll do my research to support my theory next.

What difference does it make?

Okay, you don't care.  We get it.

I do care and you should know better than to accuse me of not caring.  That being said, take a look at the statistics from last weekend Jose.  The Lawrence players didn't cost us the tournament...



Lawrence:
Lazzo 1-2
Wisbey 1-2
Martin 1-1-1
Heinen 1-1-1
Atwater 1-1
Cooper (Some would call Tonganoxie-Lawrence) 1-2
Total  6-2-9

Lawrence didn't win the West.  But we love those guys either way.  Babbit, Liz, and Clemons won (9-0).  But don't worry, Clemons is a true Missourian, and I'm sure you will have him back before too long.  But we want Shanan back when that happens, cuz I know he bleeds blue.
Until then, like Tracy said, it is  "which side is better".  Why should it matter whether we have a few better players.  KU always had better players than Mizzou.  Mizzou didn't whine, (too much), they just tried to play their best to beat them, and once in a while that would happen.  Maybe that will happen for you guys....someday.
