Hmmmmm.....more information to follow. ;)
VIP Parking should be available again this year.
Pre-registration will more than likely be available once a determination is made on what we are doing.
Upgraded players pack/Shirts possibly for those that choose this option
Good times should come to those who attend.

The Lion's Den Open is a Disc Golf party like nothing you have ever seen before... Unless you've been to a Den Party. There  is a DJ, 2 Bands, Lunch, Dinner, Beverages, Mini Disc Golf... and somewhere in the is a round of Disc Golf. All for $25.

Yes... The shirt.

All the info will be available in a week. I am putting the finishing touches on the website and getting the bands and food vendors booked.

I played last night, the following needs to be done realistically:

Clean up hole #1 area (not much at all, but tidy it up and the hillside)
#2-Mow the area
#3-side of the hill fairway, and the green area all need to be hit hard
#3 by tee pad clear out the downed tree
#4-Tree is downed, need to clean it up and off, and mow this entire area
#5-Clear off tree debris from right off pad, and mow, opening for mowers to get in there regularly needs to be done as well
#5-Long green areas need to be cleaned up and off to the North area needs to be tidied up
#6-Stairs to #6 repaired and fixed
#6-mow the fairway
#6-#7 exit ramp needs some work
#7-hillside clean up on 1st long placement for mini course and inside there for more mini action
#7-#8 clear all along the trail up to the rocks knocking down all the honeysuckle growth
#8-tidy up around the tee area, clear off all weeds along the rocks towards the picnic area
#8-Picnic area-clear/remove tree downed, clean up the area all around the picnic table areas, and then along the tree line to long #8 pin.  want to go up higher on that line and create better visuals on that.  Would like to be able to identify #8 easily from #10
#10-long placement clear out to #1 pad

Remove all trash from the course.
Design LDO #11 course, thinking that it will be a little different from last year, possibly using the newer areas been working on for one of the holes, or even playing backwards this time on it.....

Help out if you can.  I am going to start to just do a couple of hours a day on this and few more on the weekends getting the course ready.  The other reason is that this course has a few events planned in September and October, so by doing this now, the other tourneys will be in good shape for us as well with minimal maintenance needed.  I thank you as do so many other Leo's!

I hope we will see people out this year. The food, the music, and the fun will hopefully be enough to make this another memorable event. If you have questions about what to expect, I will try to make it easy. This is a Saturday Disc Golf Party at Cliff Drive.

Early Registration can be done online at lionsdenopen.com, or in person at Disc Golf World. 509 E 18th St. Kansas City, MO 64108.

Packages will hopefully be available to pick up in Early August. I will let everyone know, who signs up early, when and where you can do that. Everyone else who does not sign up early, we are planning on 200 packages. Once they are gone, they are gone. If we have a big push early enough I will order more. Your best option to guarantee yourself a packages is to sign up early.

EVERYONE IS WELCOME! Any Questions?

One day a long, long time ago, Jack and I thought it would be a good idea to run a Disc Golf Tournament for our Aug. 22 birthday party. Well... The party was the best idea of that equation. And since we love Disc Golf so much, and we were doing it on a course, we kept the 1 round Flex-start Disc Golf round. Then we added Food, Drinks, and Live Music by having Bob's band, Fisherman Bob and the Blue Fin Tuna Band come out and play on a make shift plywood stage. That eventually became a Plywood/Wooden Pallet stage provided by Hal Baby. Then due to the kindest of a Happy Guy with a Cement truck and a couple dollars to hire a couple skilled Mexicans, we got ourselves the beautiful, 2 level, stage we have today.

Why is this posted in the Tournament section and not under General Banter?
