It's spring break for me. I'd consider going if someone is coming from KC, and I could get a ride on your way through Columbia. There may be some Columbia types going as well. I try not to plan more than a few days ahead....plans seem to get changed for me.

PLEASE TAKE NOTICE!

The scheduling for this event has changed! Due to an unforseen STL Parks Deptartment reservation conflict, the courses have been swapped. Sioux Passage will now be played on Saturday, with a 9AM start, and Endicott will now be played on Sunday, with a 9AM start.

Thank you for your attention and please help spread the word!

Any idea if there are still spots available? A few of us discussed filling up a car and heading over there last night.

sioux is similar to blue valley, although i think there's more trees.

Coop, Souix Passage is like a combination of Water Work's elevation combined with Wyco's distance plus some.  It will challenge every shot in your bag, but if you manage it you can shoot veryn well! Worth going for, and then you might as well stay for Endicott the next day...shorter, but a lot more touch shots.

I don't think that the elevation is as extreme on Sioux as WW, with the exception of a few.  But it is hilly, and it is WyCo long, with a few blind shots that irritate me, but then I get irritated easily....It is a fun course though, and I would rather play it than Endicott any day of the week personally, but then I like Jefferson Barracks pretty much the best in the St. Louis course arsenal personally, but Sioux is a close 2nd.....JB like a 8.5, and Sioux at an 8, some of the long walks get me down on it as well....

Course was great, tournament sucked.

I think it would be well worth playing that course if you have the opportunity or are looking to play in a larger tournament but I would recommend never playing a tournament TDed by Timothy Wiegard. It was poorly organized, ran late from the beginning, had several players placed on the wrong cards the second round (and caused mass confusion), and, worst of all, they mixed divisions for the first round.

I cannot independently confirm this but I heard that someone complained about the grouping in the first round and even used the competition manual (section 1.6) to say that they should unmix the divisions. The response was apparently that they made a concerted effort to keep divisions the same, which was a blatant lie. Again, take that with a grain of salt, I only heard it through several filters.
