32nd Annual Kansas City Wide Open - June 20-22, 2014

32nd Annual Kansas City Wide Open - June 20-22, 2014

Once again, we are part of the PDGA National Tour Elite Series. We will be seeing some of the best players in our game, shredding OUR courses that we know like the back of our hands. BUT, in order to do that, we need all the help and support we can get. This can be done two different way.
  • Volunteer
  • Sponsorship


VOLUNTEER
I need YOU... to do something. I'll have a way for you to sign up soon at kcfdc.org. At that point you can let me know what days you are available and what times you can work when I need you to. What you can do for now is help me get as much sponsorship money as we can so we can give the best and most professional event possible.

Which leads to...

SPONSORSHIP
Download the Tri-Fold Sponsorship Form here. You can also pick a nicely printed version from me at Disc Golf World. I will try to get a more web-friendly version up soon.

I know everyone wants more details about the event and I will get to that soon. First things, first. Sponsors. Help me, help Kansas City.

Thank you!

I read today in DiscGolfer magazine that we will be using Blue Valley, Swope Gold, and WyCo for this year.

Confirm?

And the really good news is those are all short courses, so people like me that can't throw very far will have a good chance. 8)

Tank has a clinic on throwing far you could check in with him on.

You quit picking on my buddy Tank. Hey Tank, I do need a lesson. If people on the east side won't be nice you should move back to Kansas.  ;D

Well, if it's in a magazine it must be true...

Actually that is true. The NT/A-Tier will be playing those three very short courses. And the B-Tier will not be. The set up is the same as last year in that regard. Everyone will play 3 rounds. And there will be a final 9 on Sunday at Swope again. There is just a few details, like Tee Times vs. Shotgun to decide. It comes down to letting the B-Tier have one of those 3 courses or not in their event.

Now, about that Sponsorship money we need to make things happen.

I don't know Chris, if you can't throw accurately from 500', you end up throwing more than '200, which inevitably puts you farther out than '20.  But enough of this discussion.  My apologies for the sidetrack.  Let's bring this thread back to where Dick intended it to go.  I'll do my best to come up with some sponsors.

The list of people in this town who can throw accurately 500' (even 450') can probably be counted on 1 hand. Being able to throw accurately 200' and really accurately 20' are shots needed a lot more, and are actually attainable by 90% of golfers. People who aren't blessed with natural talent like yours spend too much time striving for things they probably won't be able to do.

Anyway, yay long courses!  Swope Golf will probably get tweaked again. I'm still not happy with some of those holes.
