Wide Open Update: We Want Players and Helpers
Tee off for KC Wide Open XXX is less than two months away. We're planning on hosting around 400 players, and are going to need some help to make this historic event as good as it possibly can be. We need players and we need helpers.
If you are playing, you can register in several ways:
1. By downloading an entry form at http://kcfdc.org/docs/30thkcwideregistration.pdf
2. At pdgasignup.com: http://tinyurl.com/kcwoxxx
3. At Dynamic Discs web site: http://dynamicdiscs.com/Disc-Golf-Tournaments
4. At Disc Golf World, 509 E 18th St. Kansas City MO 64108 or by calling 816.471.3472
5. At Dynamic Discs, 2854 West 47th Street, Kansas City, KS 66103
There are many ways you can help out during the event. We need volunteers to form Grounds Crews at each of the five courses we're using: Swope, Rosedale, Blue Valley, Water Works, and Young. Grounds crew members will make sure there is drinking water on the course, the tee pads are kept clean, OB markers are intact, banners and tee signs are in place and taken down, spotting during the rounds, and other related tasks.
While it would be great to find people who are available for all five rounds, we understand that for many people this will not be possible. So, if you can help out for only a round or two, that would be great. Help is needed for the morning rounds from 7:30 to about noon, and then from noon to about 4:30 in the afternoon. These time frames may change slightly after the schedule is set.
Some other tasks (but not all of them!) include helping out with the Triple X Games, plugging scores into a computer, carrying a leader board and scoring the final nine, spotting, post-event course clean-up, helping with player check-in on Thursday and Friday, course preparation (including marking OBs for Swope Gold), painting putting circles for each green, helping with the Youth Clinic and the NT Clinic on Thursday, soliciting sponsors, selling ads for the KC Wide Open Commemorative Program, and on and on.
Volunteering to be a member of a staff that pulls off a great disc golf tournament is rewarding in and of itself and lots of fun. However, volunteers will receive tournament scwhag. People who can volunteer for all five rounds as a Grounds Crew member will get more benefits, including free entry to the Saturday Night Soiree that will be a party you do not want to miss.
If you think you may be interested or able in helping out or have questions about anything related the Wide Open, please call me at 816.471.3472 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
