East vs West Team Championship
« on: December 27, 2011, 12:49:41 PM »
move discussion here to stop thread drift on KCFDC board topic

Some basic thoughts on the event:

It will be a fund raiser.  All proceeds, less awards, will go to a beneficiary to be determined.

This is a club member only event.  However, in addition to being a club member, participants will have to compete in a certain number of summer leagues prior to a predetermined date (probably something like 2 weeks before the Team Championship event). This is to deter "ringers." 

Each team will have 16 players. The teams will be comprised of 10 players from qualifying event(s), 4 Captains picks and 2 lottery winners.  Each team will carry 10 Open, 4 Masters(minimum) and 2 Women.

The team Captains will be the club VP of each state. Currently John Theiss for MO. and Jim Sherwood for KS.  If they can't or don't want to be a Captain, they should be responsible to find someone to take their place.

The competition will be a two day, 3 round event, with 2 rounds of doubles matches on Saturday and 1 round of singles matches on Sunday.  Each match is worth 1 point (1 for a Win, 0 for a loss or .5 for a halve) for a total of 32 points. 16.5 needed to claim the Championship.

I'll present this with more detail to the BoD.  Basically, I'll be looking for their event support, some funding to secure a perpetual trophy and advice on a good charity to support.

This sounds really cool.

"However, in addition to being a club member, participants will have to compete in a certain number of summer leagues prior to a predetermined date (probably something like 2 weeks before the Team Championship event). This is to deter "ringers."  "

I am confused about this part of it... do you mean just to keep the East from bringing in someone like a Nikko or something like that?

This sounds fun, except being a 2 day competition. There also needs to be some incentive to win like some type of pay out with donated prizes or a party for the winners.

Charity... "Buy replacement trees for the disc golf courses of Kansas City."

Name... "Toilet bowl: #1 vs. #2."

It should had at least one round on a new safari course to keep it fair to all involved.

What will determine the alignment of players? I am from Missouri, but reside in kansas.  Also will the matches consist of matchplay or stroke play?

Why stop there...

Let's go with North vs South too.

Then those winners play the East-West winners for the Ultimate Championship!

Yes, possibly, just not this year.  One step at a time.   :)  Let's see what the interest is, how it goes and work out the kinks before we make it more complex. 

As I mentioned earlier, possibilities for different and/or expanded regions is the reason I don't want the event name to be border war based. Ideas I have bouncing around; The Heartland Cup or The Liberty Cup or The Kansas City Cup.

Name it what you want, but any East vs West tournament in KC is inevitably going to have a Missouri vs Kansas "border war" vibe. Love that about this town! ;D
