Dude, it only raised like $200 last year. That's maybe 2 decent trees. Just be patient and wait foe the new hooes to go in, then the trees will come. And I'd play in a Glock Classic if you were to get it going.

i made the announcement last year at the players' meeting that jack would oversee this project in my absence(if you were there, danger, you would have already known).  after countless discussions with jack about numerous projects at cliff drive, it was decided to save up the money and do a larger planting when i return.  I have the watering tank and i didn't see the point of putting in trees without a regular supply of water.  seems to be a wise decision given the amount of rain kc is getting this year.  we should be able to get a better deal on the trees and mulch in two years with the money from the first three tournaments.  we raised almost $300 last year and the KCFDC has been kind enough to oversee that money until I return.

the new holes and the trees are separate, independent projects.  we will not be planting any trees on the holes we may be loosing until we have confirmation on their ultimate status.  there are plenty of existing holes in need of numerous trees that have no plans for leaving us (18,17,16,10,11).  we will be starting with those holes, probably in that order.

thanks for the inquiries, danger and khyzer.  :D

We will be needing 2 big trees to replace the front tree on #8, all the car fires there over the years have taken its toll on them.  I would anticipate it going down within the next 18 months.....sad, but planting 2 trees there will still make it a tough shot on the short placement.

What time is the players meeting and tee off?  I looked on the PDGA signup page, and quite possibly overlooked the time, but nonetheless I have no idea when this tourney gets started.
Boom goes the Dynamite!

FYI, as we did last year, this year the course will play longer the first round than the second.  Last year, I moved 9 pins between rounds.  Look for a similar number this year.  I still need to confirm with Jack and Ryan as to which greens will be playable.  (It sucks trying to host a tournament from 600+ miles away.)  Hopefully will get this finalized this week.  Last years pins were: 

1st round:  1w,2w,3w,4r,5r,6w,7w,8b,9w,10w,11b,12w,13b,14b,15r,16w,17temp,18r
2nd round:  1w,2r,3w,4w,5w,6w,7w,8w,9w,10w,11r,12w,13b,14w,15w,16r,17temp,18b

We can make it all work Drew, you let us know which Pin's you want used in the morning, and then we will work on the movement between rounds.

Most of the greens are in pretty good shape this year due to NO RAIN, so the course plays really like it would in the late fall, which is nice for those of us putting in weedwhacking hours.  Probably need to clean up a little on 4&5, but not a lot.

I need to get #2 un-frozen as well, and may try to get that taken care of this week.

How much from each entry goes towards the trees?

You and your "one finger" just need to move up.  ;)  Last yr was a shirt and a disc.  don't quite have the players pack nailed down for this year yet.  hopefully, i'll have that info out by next week.  Its a lower entry fee than most pdga events for a reason, its more of an awareness raiser than a fundraiser.  this tourney is not for the ams who want to take home a stash of plastic to sell on ebay.  you want to make money move up.  you want to play for a W, pride, bragging rights, Emporia Worlds points, PDGA ratings, and a trophy for a good cause, play whatever division you are eligible for.  i was well over the pdga minimums last year for fundraisers on both the am and the pro side.  the players pack value will be about the value of the entry minus trophy costs.  pdga does not waive their fee without a 501c3.  kcfdc was kind enough to waive their fee since it goes back to the course.  the number of trophies will be based on the number of players in each division to preregister.  i do trophy buzzes so that those who earn them, can do as they please, hang them or throw them or whatever.  trying to be as player friendly as i can with a clear conscience.
