The final round was completed, so there is not a need to replay it.  If you are referencing Discgolfplanet.tv broadcast, I am uncertain, but fairly confident that when the signal went down, they quit filming, which is too bad, it could have been as you said played back now as well......

OK, smartass...I deserved that comment  ;D.  But yes, I was refering to the latter which would have been nice to still watch even though we knew the outcome.  Oh well, s#!t happens!

I tired to take that into consdieration and gave you the answer I thought that you were looking for.  I open myself WAYYYY to much for ridicule, so it was nice to see a door open for a change and walk into it instead of opening the door for others to walk into me! :D

Holy s..... you mean they just gave up. What?  All that prep and setup time and effort.  That makes no sense to not even record the event for upload later. 

I witnessed them work very hard at getting it back online for quite a while before pulling the plug. I too think they should have gone ahead and recorded it though for later viewing. Perhaps they have some technical reason why they were unable to do so.

I actually kind of wish they'd ditch the live idea and try to get a higher quality recording and more holes and upload it shortly after the event. I think it'd be a lot easier to watch.

Thanks to Jack and all the people who put on the KCWO.  I did have a question about the AM players pack.  Jack, you referenced in an earlier post that the Ams would receive a voucher for a shirt from Dynamic Discs and an etched glass from LS Discs.  I don't believe either of these items were available when I checked in at Blue Valley on Friday.  Are they still floating around somewhere?  Thanks.

I'd gladly pick mine up at DGW.  Probably would be easy for the local guys.   

I'm not sure what to say about the traveling players.  Were they from LSDiscs?  I am guessing that LSDiscs would help with shipping.  Seems like the right thing for them to do.

Ill reach out to them, but my thought is just a delay in shipping....sending all the glasses out is just too expensive though realistically....

Frankly I'm glad we can finally stop counting down and just get to 30 already...

Ill work on what todo @ the issues around shirts & glasses that will hopefully help those partners of the wide open as well as the players.

Thanks Jack.  I would also be willing to pick up my glass, no shipping needed.  In regards to the DD shirt, I checked in around 12:30 on Friday at Blue Valley and the DD trailer wasn't there.  Becky indicated she wasn't sure where they were, so I'm not sure if they showed up later.

I found out this information late last night as well, so something needs to be adjusted on everyone's end.  I will plan on seeing if I can get Rick to house the glasses for local players for certain.  More information to follow obviously!
