The 7th Annual 4SO presented by Mother's Brewery will be held September 29th & 30th in Joplin, MO. This year's tournament is a PDGA B-Tier event with $4,000 added cash to the Pro division's payout! We have partnered with both Mother's Brewery out of Springfield and Blackthorn Pizza and Pub in Joplin to make this year's event the best 4SO to date.

Please visit www.joplindgc.com/4SO for all the details. Pre-registration is highly recommended and is available at http://www.pdgasignup.com/Qstore/Qstore.cgi?CMD=011&PROD=1333628261. This event is capped at 90 Pro/Advanced men & women and 90 Intermediate/Rec/Jr men & women.

The Friday doubles tourney will take place on September 28th with $500 added cash between the three divisions offered (Pro, Adv, & Rec). The flex start time is from 12-6 PM with unlimited rounds. Entry fees for the dubs is $20 per player for Pro and $10 per player for Adv or Rec.

Saturday will consist of two 18 hole rounds for all divisions on the permanent 27 hole McClelland Park course with an additional temp 9 added as usual. Sunday will be one round of either 18 or 27 for all divisions, depending on turnout, followed by a Final 9 for the Top 4 MPO players.

The FREE PLAYERS PARTY will be held Saturday night at Blackthorn Pizza & Pub in downtown Joplin with free Blackthorn Pizza and Hackett Hot Wings for all players, including all minors. Me Like Bees (www.facebook.com/melikebees) will be playing exclusively for our players party as well. The party should run sometime around 6-8 PM on Saturday night. Mother's will be on tap and discounted for purchase along with the usual Blackthorn assortment of refreshments.

The players pack for all Am players should consist of two discs, a dri-fit polo, and a JDGC sharpie. All JR and Rec divisions are TROPHY ONLY and will have a bonus CFR disc and $10 DGM voucher added to their players pack. All Pro players packs will consist of a CFR disc and a JDGC sharpie only.

Spread the word, pre-register, and get ready for the 2012 Four States Open presented by Mother's Brewery!!!

Had a Mother's beer for the first time last week and enjoyed it. Sounds like a fun event.

I know there is a tourney here in KC this same weekend but I do want to put in my recommendation For this Joplin B-tier. JDGC partnered with the Disc Golf Monkey put on a great show. The course is a bomber with some OB to make things interesting. Temp nine is no joke either.

Players party is a blast. Putting tOurney again this year? Nothing but good things to say about this one. $4,000 added cash for open, what's not to love?'

I never thought of McClelland as a bomber's type of course.  The temp 9 is pretty fun though.  I'm excited to play the course with nice baskets.

Well bomber may be an overstatement. I guess there are just those three or four holes that make it seem like a long course. Baskets are better than before, that's for sure. The 600+ foot downhill roller shot is a hole I'll never forget!!

We'll definitely have some sort of events going on at the players party.  Blackthorn will be packed though, so no indoor putting contest.  We might just have to do an urban putting contest...  Blackthorn has several pinball machines and other arcade games along with a pool table so there will be plenty going on. 

What do the KC guys and gals like to do for other players party events?

Come on down TallGuy!  Joplin's a fun time for sure, plus having family down there also means a free place to stay and a designated driver for me!

We should have our hotel rates sheet by the end of next week so I can update you then.  The PDGA discount hotels are probably the safest bet though.

If you are staying in a Joplin hotel, don't forget about the $10 JDGC voucher you receive if you bring in your hotel receipt. Hotel options are numerous in Joplin with some of the best disc golf rates provided at Microtel ($47Q/$54QQ), Quality Inn ($69QQ), and Towneplace Suites ($89QQ, sleeps 5). Just mention the Four States Open Disc Golf Tournament to receive these rates.

Visit www.joplindgc.com/4SO to find the rest of the lodging options in Joplin that gave our event participants a special rate.

It's a fun tournament and a fun little course, especially since the homemade baskets are history.  Come on down!

Are you going to be heading down there as well?

I didn't see you signed up in Recreational or the Jr. division.... ;D

Seriously, if so, when are you heading down?

Since I am playing Am, I don't really care about the added cash!   :P

I just was agitated by the phrase, and the generalism of it.  I personally feel that there should be only one OPEN division, and that is open to anyone wanting to play for cash, regardless of gender or division (USDGC style).....
