The course is awesome! We played some of it tonight while flagging and marking the holes. I hit chains once and stuck one from about 180 feet out (Timko said something about it being one of the harder shots  ;)). The disc is faster than the Wizard, not as stable, but flies very true. Just took a couple throws to get the feel for it. We overthrew a couple without trying to hard, so I think everyone has a chance at hitting an ace.

Ya gotta love that post!!!

Better question I wanna pose from my standpoint is Can we do this as soon as I can play again??

My knee was swollen just from all the walking
Great excersize that I needed for the muscles but I'm hurtin today.

Excellent "little" get-together.

Well, who won?

I believe Mike Penney won-my group watched him hit 2 aces in 5 holes during the 2nd round.  There were 5-6 other aces i think. My buddy luke henry hit the hanging basket on the very first throw of the 2nd round, we watched timko hit one, andy lewis hit one, i heard jack lowe hit one on the last throw of the tourney.....and there were probably 1-2 more i am missing.....tons of metal hits (except for matt HUMBLE who hit nothin but air all day) :o

Hard to hit an ace with a putter when all you know how to do is throw a flick 500+ :)

Yeah Mike "BEATLE" Bailey won the event with 2 aces...both in the 2nd round...Cashen, Timko, Andy Lewis, Jack, and several others (sorry can't tink of em rite now) hit one ace a piece. 

There were 9 aces all together ..2 of which were NOT in the ace fund so the other 7 took home $55 a piece.

Beatle was the big winner of the day taking home 2/7 ths of the ace fund and the grand prize of 10 premium Discraft discs and a bag.

THANKS to all whoe particpated in this event.  W/O the playas it would not have been the success it was.

KC DISC GOLF ROCKS!

BTW I want to say a big thanks to:  SLIM JIM Neal ( a HUGE thanks for taking care of the generator), Rick and Disc Golf World, EMAN for co-TDing, CD for donations, Vita Water for the cases of water, Pete Engleman (as usual..the guy is TOP NOTCH), Tyronne for spinn' the records, Ryan and Jon for running the MTA contest, anyone else i'm forgetting, and all the PLAYAS...

Tim and EMan - great time!!! can't wait for the next one!

Greatest throw catch of the day that got him nothing - Joe E while warming up for the MTA!
The disc had to be airborne for at least 10 seconds, then he lays out for a diving one handed catch in the outfield!
It was crazy!
