I will be competing in my first ever Spring Renewal dubs this weekend!  My partner is relatively new to the sport so our goal is simply to have a blast.  See you guys on Saturday.

I have no authority, but acccording to park statutes carts are not allowed.
The park is already ripped up from mowing right after the rain.
BTW for all you fine folk in discgolfland I am moving to St. Louis this weekend to help with an ailing friend.
Good thing, 2 courses within 5 miles.
I wll miss Swope immensely.
Spent more than half my life there. Almost every day.
Hopefully my ashes will be dispersed there upon my demise
So try not to step on me. And quit hitting the %$#@ing trees. 2 cents.

For those looking for results, Rick is away for a PDGA board meeting in West Virginia (everybody sing: Country road...).
I am sure he'll post upon his return.

Fifty-one teams officially renewed Spring at Swope Park on Saturday when light breezes and a sunny temperature nudging 80° made it a beautiful day for tossing frisbees at Kansas City's oldest course. None threw better than the winning Open Division team of Jose Ossa and Arturo Villarreal whose opening round of 37 (all deuces and a 3 on #13) powered them to a 4-throw win over Thomas Davis and Ken "Tank" Franks, who shot 81. Veterans Mike Thomas and Danny Knox, utiilizing over 50 years of playing experience shot 87 for a 6-throw win in the 100-Year Division over another seasoned veteran group of Jay Rivard and David Zentz.

The Am 1 field of 12 was the tournament's largest where Matt Dixon and Anthony Martella, powered in part by Matt's second-round ace, were six better that Scott Oswalt and Ian Ray. In the Am 2 Division, Brian Egan and Alex Wegman prevailed in the second round to take the two-throw over the fatther-son team of Mike and Connor Allison.

Everyone was stoked that there were a total of 10 mixed teams of men and woman on Saturday. In the Mixed 1, Slim Belcher and April Jenkins overcame a second-round, late-arrival penalty to prevail for the win over Brian Swezy and Chris Bonhanon in a playoff.  Alexandre Viveros partnerd with Rodney Beagle to win the Mixed 2 Division by one throw over Sarah and Joe Hammontree. And last, but for from least, was the Parent-Child Division, where Ben and Steve Dresser successfully defended their title, besting the teams of Carly and Cecil Cameron and Dylan and Jerry Patterson.

There were a total of three aces that split the ace pool of $225. Josh Lawson first throw of the day found the bottom of hole #8's basket. Billy Nelson got the same hole about 45 minutes later. Matt Dixon's ace came on #5 from the short pad, the course's shortest hole, measuring under 150 feet.

A big thanks to the Kansas City Flying Disc Club's Swope Disc Golf Course Coordinator Patrick Smith for ensuring that the baskets were moved, and to Gary Birge, who works with Patrick, and was a great assistant all day long. Gary also took these photos: https://plus.google.com/photos/115815771383701422575/albums/6009345734365606449?gpinv=AMIXal_AFiTX312qJdeV2z29kl-3WmoQeBlC1YUU_xIUK42Cwgi3JDvWWB9a7spfLQ-rmdn8AMB_JrN61dBCFiBoYlG2ow5raJXbOI22f0_VT5w_FMeXqSM&cfem=1&authkey=CK-HoY-HxtPHuAE

Thanks to all the players for their particiation, sportmanship, and good cheer. Because there were at least three or four teams of either brothers or father-sons, we might add a family division next year.
