nope.

Many are set, but a few aren't.  Swope will not be in the configuration until late of the week of the event, with mowing etc.....Cliff has a few places that must be moved.  I haven't been to WW, but read that it is currently set, and Rosedale is going to be looked at tonight to ensure that it is ready to go as well.

Rosedale is set.  #6 is more to the right than I originally intended, but after playing last night, but I think it will play just fine.

#6 where it's currently located is a better hole than one spot to the left, IMHO.

If it's all the way to the right in the woods, it's a more random sort of route to get it close. Higher scoring hole, perhaps. Better, no. I'm not really attached to any of the placements on #6, but if there's a way to take some of the left-handedness of Rosey out, you should do it, to an extent. Rosey can be set two different ways: lefty-friendly, or uber-lefty-friendly.

Missouri....our state animal is sterile, our state rock is lead, and we elected a dead guy to the U.S. Senate.  Of course, he was the best candidate.

The one I'm thinking about is pretty much straight off the teepad and up the hill. It's probably easier for lefties, but the one to the left of that is just a silly baby hyzer for righties that I could probably get within ten feet with every disc in my bag.

The next Wide Open meeting will be held at Kelly's in Westport on Tuesday May 31, at 6:00 pm. 

Kelly's is located at 500 Westport Road KCMO 64111, it is said that it is the oldest building in Kansas City, kind of fitting for the oldest disc golf tournament in Kansas City huh?

We will be aligning the teams of supporters for the events, finalizing the information needed to finish the program.  Calling out items that need to be addressed at the courses.

Assigning teams for the 3 pools that will be running the courses (2 teams needed Friday, 3 on Saturday and Sunday)

Going over the final day and how it looks to be handled from an outside perspective.

I again plan on not being there for a meeting more than an hour.  Next Tuesday I would like to have all the helpers out to this meeting as well!

fixed....thanks....

On the Wide Open front we had a productive meeting that went well even though lightly attended is the best choice of words that I will use.

We are still in need of the courses looking their best. If you can reach out to some people and help out on a course this weekend please do so. 

I am also in need of more volunteers to help from a spotting standpoint, and general work to be done standpoint.

I need to have about 4-6 people helping with the Video Production from installing at the morning and taking down in the evening following the pros only at Blue Valley on Saturday and Swope on Sunday.

I am still looking for sponsors, especially those that may want to vend on Sunday in the park regarding food, drinks, etc......would like to have their information for the program as soon as you can.

Looking for individualy disc CFR sponsors, really, if you can only help by buying a disc, please visit DGW, or reach out to me and I will get you one......Help us make this event bigger than it is!  Support local!!!

I need some help on the checkn at Blue Valley on Thursday as well, if you can help out during the day at all, please let me know.

The pools are starting to look along these lines for the event-

Pool A-Men's Open  
Fri-WW am & Cliff pm-Sat Blue Valley Tee Times-Sun @ Swope Tee Times
Pool B-All other Pro Divisions
Fri-Cliff am & WW pm-Sat Blue Valley Tee Times-Sun @ Swope Tee Times
Pool 1-Advanced Men
Sat-WW am & Rosedale pm-Sun Cliff
Pool 2-All other Am divisions
Sat-Rosedale am & Cliff pm-Sun WW

If the am pool totals less than 95 players we will put all players in one pool, and that would look like the following then:
AM ONLY POOL
Sat-Rosedale am & Cliff pm-Sun WW

Based on this (assuming over 100 ams), we will need the following:

Help all day Thursday at checkin at Blue Valley & Friday as well

Friday help at Cliff & WW all day

Saturday @ Blue Valley & Rosedale all day, WW in the morning, and Cliff in the afternoon

Sunday Cliff & WW in the morning, and then all hands on deck at Swope for the finals.....

If you can help please let me know.

THanks,

Jack

Any reason for having the Pros play Cliff in the later round? Mornings are when that course is at its best, for a multitude of reasons. Think about it, dude.

I was referring to the top pros and advocating for them to get the best possible playing conditions. Cliff is much better to play during the cooler part of the day. Oh well, since you don't want to listen to me I will just pray for rain. :D

So I am advocating for the younger folks to play in the heat as they have more tolerance than the older groupings that will enjoy the shade more in the afternoon......how dare you pray for rain...... :-* :'(

It will not be filmed in the afternoon. I work in the afternoon. Which is the real reason I wanted to see a change of schedule-- I was hoping to watch the top pros play Cliff, but it seems I'll have to settle for watching all of them shoot sub-48 rounds at Water Works. Yay.

Anyway, yeah, the Top Pro Advocacy card failed miserably. Next time I will use "For the children" or "It's what Jesus would do" as leverage.
