I really hope Swope Gold is set for next week, I'd love to get to practice it at some point.

The pins should be set. The string will be up after they mow, but you can see where it's going to be since we painted spots last night.

Scheduling information will be posted online as well as emailed directly to all pre-registrants quite soon, but first wanted to address the less than robust B-Tier registration.

So yes, I'm kind of surprised that the B-Tier Wide Open for intermediate, recreational, and novice players has not, so far, drawn more players. We hope this will change in the next 48 hours. The shirt order has to be placed by noon on Friday, which means if you think you want to play, let me know your  division and shirt size BEFORE NOON ON FRIDAY!
 
Here are some reasons why lesser-rated players should be part of this historical event:
The cost is only $55 (add $10 more if not PDGA) and here's what you get:

 1. Play three of the courses that the pros will be playing: Swope Gold, Water Works, and Blue Valley.
 2. A very cool SuperColor ESP Buzzz
 3. Pigment Dyed Performance Shirt
 4. Dynamic Disc Dirt Bag
 5. Saturday Night Soiree featuring a full Italian dinner. Check out frankiejscatering.com. Also a DJ, Triple X competition, and more will be happening
 6. 30th Annual KCWO Commemorative Program - 32 page magazine tracks each of the previous 29 Wide Open
 7. Vintage issue of Disc Golf World News--a large glossy, well-written magazine from years gone by.
 8. Prizes based on finished, and some CTPS too.(but you’ll have to earn these!)
 
Besides what a player gets, there are even more opportunities.
1.  Meet and greet Ken Climo at Disc Golf World on Friday night
2.  Dynamic Disc Team Clinic on the DD KC Store on Friday night
3.  That's right: TWO disc golf stores in one town to check out!
4.   Triple X games - $20 includes your Passport Disc. Field is limited to participate in some wild and wacky Frisbee   games.  Fun and prizes.
5.   Low cost camping at Swope Park - $10 a night
6.   Final 9 at Swope featuring top 4 men and top 3 women
7.    Sunday's free Concert in the Park after the Final 9
8.   DD Doubles on Friday at Rosedale
9.   Watching the top pros at Blue Valley and/or Wilbur Young on Friday
10. Becoming part of a 30-year tradition.

With close to 30 courses to play in Kansas City it is tough to limit the courses. 

Is this a typo or is their really almost 30 courses in K.C.?  There must be a bunch that aren't listed on the website that I don't even know about then.

Depending on what you consider the "metro", yes there are close to 30.

I think that is why he has the 3 blank spots before it.....there are also 4 private courses that are not listed, the ones that everyone knows about in Thornfield/fuzzy pony.....  The others, at the request of owners, remain silent.....so not counting Lawrence, though one could based on location, Lawrence courses are closer to my house than Pleasant Hill is for example....we are pretty well close to 30, and then John Thiess is working on the new course in North-town, and I am working on a proposal in Raytown, and Black Hoof in Lenexa isn't entirely dead, just in a comma awaiting a revival at the right time......

So yeah we got it pretty good.  But if you only want to play 1 course an entire weekend, then you probably need to step up and run the Wide Open to make that happen, because over the 30 year span, I think that only the first 8 years where attendance was less than 90 did you only play one course, and in some of those cases they were on temporary courses, called Shawnee Mission Park, and this other location called Water Works Park....good thing to use new places to help spread the impact that our sport can bring to your area in hindsight huh?  But why should we use "new" courses?  Can you imagine the riot act we would get putting the Wide Open on a temporary course in today's environment.  Some things change, but it is after all the Kansas City WIDE OPEN, it's not the Swope Gold Challenge, the Water Works Wonderful, the Rosedale Remembered, it is the KANSAS CITY WIDE OPEN, and baby its WIDE OPEN TO PLAY!

Come and get some!

Let me add another reason to join the KC Wide Open...come several days earlier and play some of the many excellent courses that are NOT going to be used in the Wide Open.

Scheduling information will be posted online as well as emailed directly to all pre-registrants quite soon, but first wanted to address the less than robust B-Tier registration.

So yes, I'm kind of surprised that the B-Tier Wide Open for intermediate, recreational, and novice players has not, so far, drawn more players. We hope this will change in the next 48 hours.
