Countless Others to make it happen before me, and those that continue to help in the cleanup of the event. Just because the dates are passed, the event still has lingering issues to follow up on!
I again thank all of you for your help and support. We are blessed in Kanas City to have such a great grouping of courses to enjoy as our home. As you think of the times that you have played in Kansas City, be thinking of what you can do to help the 30th. I am currently accepting information, photo's, old archival information of the 30 years of the event. If you have an old trophy, old program you scan, I want to make the next program for the event something that is historically significant for us to enjoy locally, nationally, and international. We have a strong history in KC for events, and next year is already going that way. The way we look at it, we are a few days closer now to the 30th than we were this past weekend!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your energy in disc golf. Please come and enjoy in KC next year. We want to show you why we are the best place in the world to play disc golf at!
