Scott I will do whatever I can to help as always....

Also...I feel like my posting may have went better under the Wide Open topic....nothing against your tourneys.

Why would it go under the Wide Open topic and whose tourneys are you complaining about.  The only tourney the KCFDC runs is the Wide Open.  Every other event this year has been run by an outside entity so you are only slamming DD and other promoters tourneys.


The highest form of ignorance is when you reject something you don't know anything about.

Ahem-- If I may,

Andy was saying his posting would have gone better under the KCWO topic because, year in and year out, the same 'core' courses get used for that event. I don't think anyone could disagree with that point.

Seems like a lot of people get easily offended on here but that isn't really the point. This thread has been hijacked from its original purpose, which is announcing and promoting the MACs. I respectively suggest any other umbrage be taken elsewhere.

Scott, thanks for running such fun and high quality events. I don't think I'll still be in the area, but if by some happenstance I am, count me in as a volunteer.

When and where? Great question, since people like to run Am only events and ZERO pro only events, outside of worlds in the US, might be something to seriously look into!!!

 Can I Pen you in as the Title sponsor?

As a guy coming from outside the K C area, I think this event is awesome. It gives folks a chance to come to KC and play some of the most awesome courses on the planet. With that said, an Open tourney would be most awesome as well. It's kinda weird coming from the outsiide now, but, looking from the outside now, it just seems that there are some overly critical comments on how things are done. With that said, it's not a bad thing to keep expressing your views as to what is happening in the community. I can only hope that people keep giving their feedbackk to what they think is towards the betterment of the disc golf community here in Kansas Citty.

Much love,
Tallguy

actions and support go way farther than words in a forum in my mind. 8)  Blather all they want, and they know who they are, ultimately it takes time away from the keyboard to impress me.

This forum represents one of the most important feedback devices offered to club members since it allows for simple communication and the democratization of the club. The most important part of any democracy is an informed electorate and one of the best ways to do that is through introducing challenging thoughts and new ideas.

But, lest this thread drift further I would like to propose/encourage my fellow competitors who aren't eligible for this to help out in any way. Whether spotting, helping set up, marshaling, filling water jugs, etc... I wish I were going to still be in the area to see this thing get off the ground but alas, I'll be moved by then.

Even if only for one round, or to help prep these are crucial to any good event.  A lot of work gets done prior to the event.  The event happens and the event continues for those running it after the scoring is done.  Spot on with this need for certain in any event, non-sanctioned, C=Tier, B-Tier, A-Tier, NT, it takes everyone to help make an event excel!

I know there are reasons for it but this is one reason I wish there were Am and Pro weekends for the KCWO. I would love to help out more at the event but I'm not going to sacrifice trying to be as prepared as I can be to do so. I think that there would be many more people available in this format.
