We're holding the 3rd H2 Open and Celebration at Water Works Park on Saturday, July 22. As always, this event is for "Those Who Truly Love Water Works Park" as we will be gathering to play and socialize on one of the most enjoyable disc golf courses on the planet.

The field is limited to 90 players (there are about 65 spots left as I type this), and this event has historically always filled. If you're going to play, pre-registration is a good idea.

I hope you can join in this celebration event as it always a blast to play some disc golf with friends at such a beautiful venue. If you think you're going to play, please let me know beforehand. Thanks.  Rick

The 3rd H2 Open Was A Fine Day in the Park
« Reply #4 on: July 24, 2006, 10:13:50 AM »
Wow! What a great day at Water Works on Saturday, when 69 players in seven divisions participated in the 3rd H2 Open and Celebration. The competition was spirited in most of the divisions. It came down to a playoff in the open division between the Kevins: Babbit and Corbett. With everyone pulling for Kevin, the men played the middle short #1. Kevin made his 25 footer for the win while Kevin C left his drive left and couldn't drain his birdie attempt. KC's most prominent pro player, Tavish Sanders, held off Kathy Betcher, who traveled from Rock Island Illinois, to win by two. Grandmaster Bruce McQueen, who played in the masters (rated under 940)/grandmasters division had the only sub-par round of the day in that division for a comfy 6-throw win over Tim Elder and Virgil Nunnery. A good friend of Water Works (FOWW), Ken Hostetler, played perhaps the two most steady rounds of his life, shot par for the two throw win over Jack Lowe and Ben Taylor. Proving that consistency and control mean more than distance, another huge FOWW, Brian Woodson triumphed in the am masters, edging a friend of all disc golf parks, Mark Morales, by four throws. In the intermediate, Matt Shively shot the most consistent two rounds to win by two over House Miller and Clay Chance. And finally, newcomer John Riley, playing in his first and last novice division, won easily over another new tournament player, Arbrie Kovacs by 12.

A big thanks to everyone who played and helped. There was no whining whatsoever. A bit thanks goes to Bill Neenan, who sat out the event and kept things going while everyone else played. Kelly Warren and Paul Eklund, assisted by Lynne Warren and Matt Eklund provided some extremely tasty BBQ, which fed everyone. Jack Lowe and John Riley helped set the course on Friday.d Ben Taylor and Pauly Cross unlocked the baskets during practice on Saturday morning. The experiment to get groups to move baskets as they finished their last hole of the first round worked perfectly. Thanks to everyone who toted the pins. Thanks to John Chapman for leading the way on scoring with an assist to Dan Cashen. I'm sure I've forgotten to thank someone, but I hope not.

Next year's H2 Open will definitely be happening in the same time frame. We'll be limiting the field to 72 players and like this year, we will be sending out invitations to those who have played in the first three events prior to opening it up the public.

Thanks again to everyone for a great day in the park. It was a blast.

The next DGW event is the Big O in Olathe on August 5. More on that later today.
