Andy is on the ball! Beat me to it. Wanted to get the link to the flyer before posting. Many of you will be getting the message below sent to you directly. If you want to get on the Disc Golf World tournament announcement list, please send me your name and address to rick@discgolfworld.

Please see the contents of a flyer below announcing the 2006 Big 0, a
two-round KDGA Oz Tour event that will be held Saturday, August 5. This is not a PDGA sanctioned event, although PDGA rules will be in effect. The 2006 Big O is a Junior Targeted Tournament, so if you are under 20 or know of some kids under 20 who have wanted to play in a tournament against others of the same age, this is an attempt to gather them for one event.

The 2006 Big O
A 2-Round KDGA Oz Tour Disc Golf Event

Saturday, August 5, 2006 • Prairie Center Park in Olathe

We’ve uncovered buried historical documents proving that first Big 0 was held in 1996, but we’re not sure if this is the 11th annual or not. Because of the increasing number of junior (ages 19 and under) players who have come into Disc Golf World during the last year, this year’s Big 0 is a JUNIOR TARGETED TOURNAMENT. What this means is that we are encouraging juniors (ages 19 and under) to play, learn, and have fun. Towards that end, we will be mixing the divisions for the first round and will have a clinic after the tournament. In addition to the $10 Disc Golf World prize voucher, all juniors will receive a mini and rulebook. While this is not a PDGA sanctioned event, PDGA rules will be in effect.

Adult Pro Divisions: Open $44; Pro Women $24; Pro Masters (born 1966 or earlier) $24; Pro Grandmasters (born 1956 or earlier) $24.
Adult Amateur Divisions (Men & Women): Advanced: $29; Amateur Masters (born 1966 or earlier) $24; Intermediate: $24; Novice: $19
Junior Divisions (Boys & Girls) $17: Ages 17-19 (born 1987 or later); Ages 14-16 (born 1990 or later); Ages 11-13 (born 1993 or later); Ages 10 & under (born 1996 or later).
   
    Junior-aged players may register for adult divisions. All amateur/junior players get a $10 DGW voucher players’ package. There will be plenty of merchandise to choose from. Call before the event with special requests.
    Cash prizes for pros. Prizes for ams include merchandise and/or DGW vouchers. In addition, personalized disc trophies will be mailed after the tournament to the winners of the amateur divisions with at least 3 entrants. $2.00 of each entry goes to the Kansas Disc Golf Association. Active Kansas City Flying Disc Club members may deduct $2.00 from their entry.
    Ace Pool is $2.00. If no ace is hit, there will be a closest-to-the-pin contest for half the pool. The other half goes the KDGA Oz Tour’s roving ace pool. KDGA members who hit an ace, not only get the Big O pool but half of the ongoing pool as well. For more about the KDGA and the Oz Tour, go to kansasdiscgolf.com.

Field limit is 90 players. Please help by pre-registering, or at least,
calling ahead.

I think the original big "o" was in 1990, or 91. We used Prarie Center and Oregon Trail parks. Oregon Trail had a temp 9 hole course put in for the tourney, and at least one year we had drunken dubs after the tourney there.

Those events were Olathe Opens and run by Ned Smethers. He had a beer sponsor and somehow transported a big ole tub of beer around a short fun course that we played twice. It seems like I played in at least two, and maybe three of those events after moving here in 1992. We held the regular tournament (at least one was a C Tier) at Prairie and then set up the nine holer at Oregon Trail to be a little less in the public eye. One year in particular is memorable when Sam Ferrans, Gregg Hosfold, and Crazy John played.  I remember Bruce H bobbing for beer in the tub and smackedhis forehead hard on a beer was stacked perfectly on top of another. I'm fuzzy on this but there was some kind of playground equipment like monkey bars out there. Hosfeld was doing something on them (like hanging upside down) with a frisbee and Harvey Barger of Ocoberfriz fame offered him free Fruz  entry if he could do it. He gave me a free entry just for trying it. But I can't remember what it was or if Gregg could do it. I know I couldn't.

Anyway, Ned eventually moved and the Olathe Open stopped. I came up with the name Big O in 1996, in honor of Olathe, what else? Ahem. I found a flyer from 1997 announcing the 2nd Big O.

Thanks for the clarification. I'd forgotten the monkey bar scene.

Big O Update and Course Configuration
« Reply #8 on: August 03, 2006, 01:47:11 PM »
The weather has moderated a bit for this Saturday's Big O's event. It should be a fine day for some golf.

Please note that I left some important information from the flyer: http://www.kcfdc.org/docs/bigO2006.pdf

Registration will be from 8 to 9:30. We hope to get going shortly after 10. There will be a players meeting for novices, juniors, and anyone who needs a refresher course on rules at about 9:55. We'll take an hour for lunch before playing the second round.

Below are the holes we will be playing, which tee pads, and the OBs. We'll be handing this out to each person as they register.

If you have any questions or want to pay by credit card, don't hesitate to give me a call.

Thanks,

Rick Rothstein

So how did it turn out? I had to see someone off at the airport at 11am and then had tickets to a concert/festival in Lawrence or I would have been there. But I would like to know what took place. Scores, attendance.....?

I beleive there were 44 in attendance, but since I didn't really show up, I'd say there was 43. It was a fun tourney though. I imagine Rick will post scores soon, but I hope not.

I was at my 20 year high school reunion, or I'd have been there.  There were a few folks that went up to Omaha also.

The temp was hotter than expected on Saturday, which was probably the main reason for the lower turnout.

I thought the tourney went well except for the 2 Pro players that played Advanced and kept me from taking 1st place.  I tried my best but they still got me by 10 or 12 strokes..........talk about sandbagging.

I wouldn't characterize either Dan Coffman or Steve Slinker as a pro, although, had there been a Masters division, they likely would have gone over there.

I agree. Those two should have played Pro-Masters if there had been that division. But they don't belong in Open. Advanced would be about right in that case. Dan is over 50 and Steve is in his mid 40s. You young guys should have schooled them....    :lol:  :lol:  :lol:

Yeah, right....  Dan usually gets me by 10 to 12 strokes at league. I just grin and bare it.  :D

But when I force him into Open he rarely if ever cashes....  :shock:
