I think we could have finished. Last lightning call out was the last lightning I saw until 9pm. We only had 6 holes left at 5. No complaints though, I wasn't going to change my position in division anyway. I might have improved my rating some though. I heard there were a few dropping out anyway.

The Kan-U-Wyco was an interesting day.  I was forced to cut the second round short and as per PDGA rules, finish the tournament based on the first round scores only.  It was a difficult decision and one I have never had to make in the 16 years I have been running events.  I made the call, because I do not believe we had even close to enough time to finish.  The last strike was at 5:20 which would have meant assuming at that time there were no more strikes, the players could go back plus another 10-15 minutes to allow players to get to their holes and acclimated.  Most groups had anywhere from 5-9 holes left with less than 30 minutes of possible lighted play.

I have always said i was pretty blessed with the weather I have had with my events over the years but this was the one that reminded how sucky the playing conditions could get.  Otherwise I think the event was going well and things seemed to be operating as they should.

Here are the results for the 1 Rounder Kan-U-Wyco

Again if you have any concerns, comments or complaints, please message me and I would be happy to talk to you more about it.

Thanks

We had close to the same conditions at the Fore Fathers Fling yesterday.  It was one sloppy, muddy, rain-soaking mess!  It took us just over 4 hours, and a half hour stoppage, to complete the first round.  They called it after that, as they didn't feel we could get the second round in before dark.  Most everyone was definitely good with that.  The one round felt like we played 2.  I think I gained ten pounds in excess water soakage....lol

Part of the charm of the Kan U Wyco is the weather.

Yeah was having a blast. So much for my rebound in the second round which would have saved my rating. But with 6 holes to go I got screwed. And yes we could've finished. So any statement otherwise would not be true. And the fact I would've placed but didn't  because only the first round scores counted and not the 12 I had thrown the second round. Can anyone else taste the bile?

I dont think you would have finished, but it was not about just your card finishing.  All of the cards would have had to finish including the groups with 9 more holes to go with very little daylight left.

Thing is, no matter what you do someone will complain about it. If you would have let it play there would be people pissed that their rating suffered because the weather.
Love me some chains!

Scott made the correct decision. 
It does stink you did not get to improve St. Joe KC, but I agree with everything Tracy said.

Tracy, well done on the layout.  I do not play WYCO very much, mainly because it is too far on the wrong side of the state line, but I think it is a very good challenge in its normal set-up.  I thought your use of OB provided the right amount of pucker factor and made the non-flagged difficult holes seem like a walk in the park.

To insure that the weather and the wolves will not be an issue next year I say we move the whole event inside.

Did anyone dredge the pond for lost discs? I have one in there I would like back.

Perhaps instead of soccer and ball fields, we can convince Cerner to build an inflatable dome over the entire course.

Water Works will have to be first for that. It's in Ace Mason's master plan for WW.

There was no way we would have finished. My card had 6 holes left when we got to hole 10 and there was one card waiting to throw and mine made for 2. That was at 5:15.  I actually quit and was walking back when I heard the horn blow.  Scott called it right.  Sorry about your ratings dudes, but wait for a month and we will all be in shorts and tshirts and then we can talk about ratings.

@Scott, hope you understand, I was NOT complaining. You did what you thought was right and with your knowledge of the speed and placement of all cards, you were the one to make the call.

On the other hand, if someone did get struck by lightning, since it is a KCFDC event, insurance would have covered any damages . . .

 . . . and just think of the national/international publicity disc golf, Kansas City and WyCo park could have gotten. (Who cares about the shmuck that got struck)  ;) ;D
