I will brainstorm. Some of these are jokes and the others are not. It is up to you do decide which is which. Also, in the spirit of an event like the Ryder Cup, I think naming it after a person, particularly someone involved in KC disc golf or just a famous Kansas Citian makes sense.

The BBQ Cup
The Mo-Kan Showdown
The Border War
The Rothstein Cup
The 'Crazy' John Classic
The Disc Golf World Team Championships Presented by Dynamic Discs in Conjunction with the Kansas City Flying Disc Club
The Truman Cup
The Boss Tom Team Championships

seems like we've averaged about 45 total players completing the club champs, 16 vs 16 sounds do-able for the team challenge

I am getting the team championship info from Sprague, as Iowa did that this year, teams of 8 play.....starts out 2 man doubles, best shot against another team, the next round was 4 man alternate shot, then the final was an 8 man team on each side, with alternate drivers on every hole, (each team gets 2 drivers) then play alternate shot based on each hole from there....

I am asking for all the rules to be sent as well as the new ones that they are thinking about doing.

I was told that a KC team can compete next year, if we won though the trophy and the location would go to the highest finishing team left from Iowa.

They are also looking to do a ratings cap next year of 7000.  Plus if you have a woman, you get extra points as well...

Tracy,

Do you anticipate the singles being stroke or match play?

Are all the doubles matches the same format?  Or will 4 be best shot and 4 be alt shot (thinking of Ryder Cup here)?

Has there been any volunteers for the role of team captain?

You should think about making the alternate shot rounds in the Ryder Cup Foursomes format. In otherwords, one player tees off on the even holes, and the other player tees on the odd holes, and then you alternate from the tee shot. That way a hot driver or a hot putter doesn't take advantage. Both players have to do both.
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.

Now that the KCWO is in our rear view mirror let's think about who would make a good Captain for this event? 

I had several people express this weekend how they would like to be "more involved."  Taking on Team Captain is a perfect start.
