Roc vs Buzzz - Swope Park - 9-22-12
« on: August 29, 2012, 11:16:13 PM »
I thought of running this event years ago and wondered why I had never played in one. Well, I may not play in this one, but I am going to do my best at putting on a great event for all the players.

Roc vs Buzzz

September 22, 2012

Swope Park Disc Golf Course

Presented by The Kansas City Flying Disc Club, West Plaza Tomato Company, Disc Golf World, and Dynamic Discs.

Entry fee: $25.00

Check in from 8:00 to 8:30. Playerís meeting at 8:50. Tee off at 9:00.
 
Ace Fund is optional at $5.00 and payable cash only on the day of the event. In the event of no aces, a CTP will determine top three pay out spots at 50%, 25%, and 25%.

Players Pack: One custom KC Pro Roc (Rancho) and one custom Z Buzzz, lunch, beverages and a great time. There will be many opportunities for schwag (discs, clothing, and a basket) between CTPs and Ring of Fire competitions.

Tournament will run as follows:

You must throw a Rancho Roc (Rancho Cucamonga mold) or a Buzz (no SS), depending on your team affiliation, from the tee on each hole. You are only allowed to throw your teamís disc and only one putter of your choice. You may not throw your putter from the tee. Layout will be long and short with lots of OB and mandos on a twenty-seven hole course.

The idea is simple. Many of us have thrown both discs over the years but have grown to favor one over the other. Players register as Team Roc or Team Buzz and then all fifty-four players on each team play against each other for the right to be called champions. The winning team will be determined by stroke play and point play, and that team will receive a Roc vs Buzzz custom color mini.

First round cards will be two Roc players and two Buzzz players. Second round cards will be stacked with two Roc and two Buzzz players by first round score. However, in addition to strokes, players will also play for points on each card. If you win the card, you win four points for your team. If you are second on the card, then three points. Third, two. And one, one. The point system makes the first and the last card equally competitive for each team, and may also help to break the many anticipated ties.
The top two players on each team will play a final nine holes for a cash payout to the top four players.

I hope to create a fun sense of rivalry and camaraderie for everyone involved. Thanks to the KCFDC, DGW, DD, and West Plaza Tomato, as well the many volunteers who keep Swope and the KCFDC looking good.

Online registration to follow.

Congratulations to the sponsors!  8)

I look forward to hopefully playing in this event.....hmmmmm though, how can we decide the teams, since this is a predominant Innova team.  If Tank & CD play on team Buzzz I will play there!!  :o

Sounds really cool, hope to play in this event. I suppose since there are one of each disc in the players pack, there could be some trading going on. I'd happily trade the Roc to someone for their Buzzz. ;D

That's team QMS, and if I need to, I can get a team together on that one, but no one asked me about it.  I have a few people that I know would love to challenge you Roc Loving Buzzards out there though......of course all of them are in masters or older...... ::)

You may want to keep both discs as the art on each disc complements the other. Will post as soon as the proofs have been approved.

Really looking forward to it!

Wait, so this isn't like Ace Race where you have to use the disc from the player pack, is it?

It would appear that way. Hence the restrictions on what mold it is.

So you only get to use one roc or buzz?

No I'm pretty sure you can use any Roc (Rancho) or Buzz (non-ss) that you want.

It doesn't have to be the one in the players pack, it can be one you own already. And you only bring that one Roc/Buzzz and a putter.


Erik will correct me if I'm wrong.

Peter is pretty much right one except you can bring twenty different Rancho Rocs if you want or tweny different Buzzzes  plus a putter of your choice. I tried to be as clear as I could, yet I need to work on it. Maybe I should have said 'whichever Rancho Roc or Buzzz you want from the tee pad.'

Not an Ace Race. This is fifty four holes of stroke play with points added only for the team aspect. However, there will be ace runs.
