I agree with you Dick and it might be a bad risk with the weather.  However, it has been a mild winter so far. 

Smithville and the future Blue Valley are looking to be great future sites.   ;D   Three courses  would make this so much easier for you Jack  ; :D 

Regardless of my dicey ideas,i will be there to help you Jack

ok.....

I really dont want to change the ice bowl.  I like it the way it is.

I want to let people play competitively on Saturday and award a winner on the play based on 2 rounds of play for Saturday.

I want them to come out and play on Sunday as well, just that they wouldnt have to play 18 holes to turn in a score, it would come from the best round they shot on Saturday, then they would be able to come and enjoy the mess known as the Ice Bowl.

I can see Rick's point in keeping with the tradition of the Ice Bowl trophy, traditions are hard to beat, and since the previous winners all had the mulligans to win the bucket, by golly they should stay that way.

My thought though is really not that hard to grasp.  Play would be available on Saturday.  Of course all the proceeds would go towards the overall Ice Bowl tally, this is not a seperate event to alienate the Ice Bowl, but rather an enhancement to possibly drive more participation to the events on Sunday.

I remember about 4 yrs ago though that Saturday was BEAUTIFUL, like 60 degrees, then we got a storm late in the afternoon and Sunday was a white wonderland, then melted away to find our plastic.  So Saturday's scores may be inflated or deflated based on the weather.  I am willing to take that score though as no mulligans would be allowed on Saturday.

It will be a straight disc golf play with regulation rules, 5 or 6 somes (if we have that many) and set times on Saturday so possibly those people that miss Sunday morning rounds would now have a chance to play in the afternoon final 9.

I like the idea of the Ice Bowl Champion still needing to play both rounds on Sunday, so we would then crown a King and Queen of the Ice Bowl on Saturday, and allow them to hold court on Sunday.  That is altered from my original thought that you could be both the King and the Champion, you could of course be that, but it would require playing both days in all rounds.

So its sounding like something will happen on Saturday, I am liking some of the ideas that are coming out.  I will again make some final decisions by the end of the week NEXT week, and should have a solid idea of where things stand for the Ice Bowl 2011 from this MMIC! ;D

The Ice Bowl is a Big Event, I think that is taxing right now because we have outgrown Rosedale with all the participants..  Which is a good thing when you consider that we are raising money for charity. 

How about Saturday before the Ice Bowl you have a two round tournament with a required entry fee into the Ice Bowl.  Then you must also pay 20 dollars for the Saturday Tournament.  Whoever wins Saturday is the King of that Saturday.  Then hopefully everyone shows up for Sunday to play as well for the Ice Bowl Cup if they want to.  If you want the cup, then you have to deal with everything that goes along with the Ice Bowl.  Which means, until we have a setup like Smithvilles 3 courses in one area or Blue Valleys proposed changes then you will have to deal with delays, casual play, and some fun.  Hopefully We can make it easier on the volunteers who run this event.

I like the Ice Bowl on Sunday, the way it is.

First of all, here's some history for the KC Ice Bowl. It's notable that the event has been run the same way for the last several years and has been growing steadily since 2007.

                       Cash   Pounds   Participants   Avg Temp   Snow on Ground
1996   Kansas City   KS   $175   204   85   42   4
1997   Kansas City   MO   $300   15   73   23   3
1998   Kansas City   KS   $325   0   100   33   0
1999   Kansas City   KS   $375   0         
2000   Kansas City   KS   $347   20   114   25   1
2001   Kansas City   KS   $1,784   200   148   35   0
2002   Kansas City   KS   $2,018   200   147   33   2
2003   Kansas City   KS   $2,400   150   150   18   0
2004   Kansas City   KS   $1,586   200   110   29   1
2005   Kansas City   KS   $2,572   25   170   34   1
2006   Kansas City   KS   $4,020   10   236   46   0
2007   Kansas City   KS   $3,000   0   212   16   2
2008   Kansas City   KS   $4,042   0   295   46   1
2009   Kansas City   KS   $4,300   20   337   21   0
2010   Kansas City   KS   $5,335   0   403   31   0

We tracked 403 players last year (see list below). My guess is that we had 350 on the ground, which meant that we had 50 or 60 people supporting the cause by purchasing a package but didn't come out. Of those 350 who were there, 167 played both rounds, and there were first round scores know for another 91 folks. I know for sure that there were several of the people we show no scores for who did play at least one round. (And there would have been a few more playing the last round except there was a communication lapse from the tournament staff.)

I like the idea of a competitive event on Saturday at Rosedale as long as it enhances the total for charity. It might indeed take some pressure off the crowding on Sunday and would make Jamie Barry happy.

However, I believe that we shouldn't mess with Sunday that much, and that the Traveling Trophy that goes back many years continues to be awarded to the player who plays both rounds and scores the best on Sunday. Those who played on Saturday would be welcome to participate in the fun, food, and games, but if they wanted to play for the trophy and one of those DX discs that the winning player out of each card gets after round 2, they would have to pay again.

I believe one of the reasons for Ice Bowl's success in drawing many players who don't usually play any other events is that we push fun over competition. (Let's face it, how serious can any competition be that sells mulligans?). Also, by giving away discs on every card, we make winners of many people, some of whom for the first time on a DG course. A final nine for Ice Bowl is a dubious idea at best, especially if it resulted in no 9-hole round for everyone else.

I agree that Ice Bowl in KC is a bit (or even bigger than a bit) of a cluster****. I've been both amazed and quite pleased that an overwhelming majority of folks have taken the No Whining rule to heart. This is not to say that we shouldn't be trying to make things move more quickly out there.  However, due the nature and history of the event, and that  Ice Bowl draws more recreational  players than experienced competitors, trying to structure rounds at Ice Bowl is akin to cat herding. But, here's an idea with all baskets in their shortest positions.

Round 1-Flight 1 tee off at 8 a.m. 90 people on each course. Mulligans are in effect.
Round 1-Flight 2 tee off at 10:15. 90 people on each course. Mulligans are in effect.

Lunch and games: noon to 2:00

Final round: 2:15  Hopefully enough people will not play the second round, but be prepared for sixsomes, sevensomes, or more.  With sevensomes on each of 36 holes allows 252 people to play. Again, last year, we had 167 play both rounds.

Of course, if the weather is icy, then we're probably screwed as Downunder can be nearly unplayable when iced. A mistake was made several years ago when people were sent Downunder when it was icy, which produced at least one serious injury.

 I'm very skeptical that we could get 180 players to show up at 8 a.m. And then, there's the issue of what they do until lunch.

Here's that list of participants from last year.

Keep it simple. Folks show up at Rosey and play one round, teeing off no later than 10:30.

Only problem is you can't get 400 tee'd off by 10:30

I agree that 400 players cannot be teed of before 10:30. I would say the most that could be teed off would be around 150.....
starting at 7:00 with a fivesome going off every 7 minutes would be 150 players teed off by 10:30. No wonder there is always such a cluster... ;D



Rick,
I shot a 49 and a 27, not 37 for the second round last year.

Despite the "cluster" that the ice bowl has become, it certainly hasn't decreased participation. I mean, if you just look at it for what it is, you have to say that the more it's become a zoo the more participation has increased.

Just the facts maam.

Under the arcane rules known only to the secret society of Ice Bowl czars as promulgated by Czar Ric Dik You Lus the Elder, your mulligans were rescinded, which when combined with the invocation of the statute of limitations clause concerning whining, your score was adjusted accordingly.

missed my name on the list, must be an oversite... Swore I was there, and supported by donating $150 in Innova discs... Doesn't that count?

Sure it does...frankly, (pun intended) it's amazing more names aren't missed....it's an amazing scene with all the people. Pre-registering helps TREMENDOUSLY. Reminder to self...

I don't know if I have any tremendous suggestions. I like Rick's idea the best of the two flights. That idea gets completely screwed if the DU is iced over, however. Perhaps we have a backup plan and disclaimer on the two flights idea. Backup plan is basically the current idea, except perhaps we go to a one-round event up top....with flights at 8:00, 10:15, 12:30, and 2:45.

 I'm not worried so much about what people will do until lunch....that doesn't seem to be much of a problem now, or it's already a tremendous problem, and people have already figured out how to deal with it on their own.

I agree with Chappy that our main problem is really after the first round is over.
1. Hoping we have enough chili donators to feed everyone.
2. the time it takes getting in mini and CTP
3. getting everyone back out for 2nd round in an oderly fashion without overcrowding too many tee pads
I've seen #2 cause people to leave before the next round from waiting so long for the next round to start.

I'm on the fence on the possible solutions.

Not sure if this is already done.  Since it is for charity though, I thought it might be a good idea.   Depending on if donations are made.  (discs, bags, gift certs, etc)  perhaps there can also be raffle tickets sold for items that have been donated?  Maybe some can get companies to donate stuff for charitable contributions??  Just an idea.
No matter where you go, there you are.

We do that typically through the CTP process where the closest picks from the table first then move along to the next person....

So with that said, we are always looking for great sponsors even it is product not cash.

I read this thread two days ago and gave it some thought. My initial reaction was a bit negative thinking why turn it into a two day event and why diminish the importance of the Sunday rounds. With a little thought, I can see the value in this format now.

If the point of the Ice Bowl is to a) show solidarity in our already awesome disc golf community b) enjoy the cold knowing the warmth is around the corner and c) raise money for our chosen charity, then how can we do that better?

350 - 400 plus for an Ice Bowl is incredible. I have consistently been amazed at the energy and true sense of community I have experienced while eating chili, staying warm, and putting on the best face for our sport. While it does get backed up, Rosedale seems to be very conducive for its LOCATION. Can we get the same draw or better over multiple days? Probably so. Dick and Jack both have good points about the comp. versus the party (In writing, I agreed with Jack and Dick at the same time).  ;)

My thinking is if we are trying achieve the three goals listed above, I bet we can do better. Like many players, I can't usually give my whole weekend to golf. One attractive thing about one day Ice Bowl is being able to show up no matter what and possibly throw it well. However, if it can only be Saturday, then so be it though I really like the Sunday fun.

The weather is out of hands. Does this make a better Ice Bowl? I think we can (as we already put on the biggest).  ;D

No wimps, no whiners.

I think we do need to do something "different" so I'm not against any suggestions.
BUT lets not turn the course into a club championship setting.
Keep em short n fun!!!!
I have an idea for another way of raising more money if you do keep them short. And possibly add some temp shorties
Have a competition within a competition.
Offer people the opportunity to get in a Monster Metal Mayhem along with The Ice Bowl
Its a points set-up like the ace run. 3pts for an ace 1pt for metal
Your still putting out and keeping track of your regular score along with tracking your metal shots.
If you have an awesome prize for the winner I'm sure you'll get people wanting to try this.
I know I'd be in for another $25
