Lynn Warren- Hall of Fame from KC and an early pioneer for the women in the sport. Also helped Rick out with Disc Golf World News when Rick was sending out the magazine.
Kristie Carduff- First woman KCFDC President ground breaking at the time and traveled playing disc golf for a summer.
Rhonda Crosby- Started the Divas in KC along with a few other women and has grown the Divas and the tournament scene for women in KC to the 2nd largest all women's tournament in the world. Also very hands on with the development of the kcfdc site and behind the scenes work on the site.

Do you mean Kristie Svejda? Or Tavish Cardiff? I've never heard of Kristie Carduff and I know Svejda was a president?

General Banter / Spring Newsletter write up-NEED YOUR HELP!

Hey y'all! Interested in helping me write about women's involvement in disc golf in KC? I need some help from women AND men!! (Please men! We need your participation here!!)

Many of you know I adopted the KCFDC newsletter when I became a Board member at the end of December 2014. I have decided to continue with this role despite the fact that my tenure is up. I'm working on an idea for the Spring newsletter, which should come out perhaps a couple of months before the Third Annual KC Diva Spring Feeva (woohoo!). It's an article focusing on women's involvement and contributions to the Kansas City disc golf scene. The idea is not fully formed at this time but I have some ideas of the direction I want it to go. I would like to focus briefly on the history of women in the sport in KC leading into the history of Girls Night Out and the KC Disc Golf Divas as well as where we are at currently. We all know there's been a huge uptick in the formal involvement of women in our local community, so why not write about it?!

Here's where you come in:
In the article, I would like to feature a brief write up of 5-10 local women, both those who've been around awhile and those who are newer. I would really love if you would email me the names of 5-10 women in the local scene you feel have made a positive impact on our disc golf community and a short description of why. This could be an impact through their level or quality of play, community involvement, volunteerism, notable disc golf accomplishments or something that makes them stand out on the course. I will then wade through these and do my best to choose the 5-10 whom have received the most mention and do a brief write up of their contribution.

Serious inquiries/responses only please. Please email your responses to me at crispianpaul@hotmail.com. Because email is an easy way for me to cache, store and review responses, responding below won't help me as much. Thanks so much in advance for your support and words!

Tournaments / Re: 2017 Schedule for Kansas City and surrounding areas
« on: December 18, 2016, 10:15:39 AM »
By my math that is 64 event dates. Wow, I've only been laying for less than 5 years but this has to be an exceptional city for disc golf. Other than the obvious reasons like the courses and people we have so many great events to choose from. Great work to everyone that is putting on tournies this year.

KC is amazing for what we have and do!

General Banter / Female Disc Golfer Harrassment
« on: November 09, 2016, 05:44:24 PM »
To the individual who is writing disgusting things ("For a t***y f**" call xxx-xxx-xxxx") and sharing a female disc golfer's ACTUAL phone number in the bathrooms and Port-o-potties at varying courses (3 so far) in the area, you need to stop. This is harassment and frankly, a low down, dirty thing to do. It is also a violation of the club's behavioral policy (if you are in any way affiliated with the club). I will be happy to find out who you are and expose you. Please, if any of you know who this person is, I urge you to help create a safe environment for female golfers. This does NOTHING good to promote the sport we love, especially with women. It is clear, since the victim is a disc golfer and this is appearing at disc golf courses, that this is someone in our community.

I didn't see it, but I appreciate your willingness to be sensitive to another human being's perspective, Cade.

I had my first ace on August 29th, hole 5 at the little Lenexa 9-hole course, Sar-ko-par Trails with a 167 DX Roc. Today, just over two months from then, I had my second ace, hole 11 from the short pad at Swope Park during Divas League, with a 155 Air Saint.

It looked good minus all that. (Me, Matt and MK were together). Someone left furniture in addition to trash. Bummer.
