Some more information on the event....

Looks to be Doubles Scramble style with a flex start.  Will probably use a Hybrid Lion's Den configuration, playing very similar practice 1, 2 from road, through exisiting-7, then play as the LDO did last year, where after throwing to #14, we play from the road to #15 under the tree, and then to regular #16 short, then from #17 pad to #18 basket.  So it will be LDO 2012 style for those in the "know"


Deleted old information, read below for more accurate information from the event managers!!

More information as it evolves, but this is where things are moving right now.  A more controlled event at Cliff Drive that will be a Lion's Den feel in some respects.

Lots of fun planned, this is a beginner friendly event for certain, infact if you bring a friend, you get $5, and so do they for attending the event.

I will be working on having a short configuration for the course, ala Lion's Den, there will be a few bands, a Farmers Market, mini golf, and other activities beyond Disc Golf at this event.

It is really just about getting them known to the area and the community, and a lot of the residents play disc golf, and love Cliff drive, so working towards making it another great day in the park at Cliff Drive!

Sorry for all the confusion, here is our final information:

Community Harvest Disc Golf Tournament will have a flex start between 8:30am and 11am, come with your friends or be put with a group when you arrive. The Cliff Drive course will be set up in a Lionís Den Open configuration to make it fun for people of all skill levels. We will have score cards for competitive and non-competitive divisions (discs will be available for those who do not have one). The award ceremony is planned for 3pm, it may be pushed back depending on when everyone finishes up. Check our Facebook event page for prize information and photos. At that time we will also pull raffle tickets for Northeast Area and Harvest themed prizes.

Consider bringing out the whole family for a day of fun, check our website for non-disc golf information and pre-festival packages.

$30 Registration includes: entry into the tournament, a Chipotle burrito and dessert, event t-shirt (Made in the USA from 100% recycled fibers), commemorative mini-disc, Jerusalem Farm bumper sticker, entry into longest drive and closest to the pin competitions, and two raffle tickets.

(Mulligans can be purchased for $2 each or 3 for $5 upon arrival, and for $3 on hole 12 you can play from the "Pro-throw")

Register with a friend! $25 each for registration.

Hey this is a wonderful worthy group to raise funds for. These young people work in the urban core helping repair and upgrade low income family homes. I know a few of the folks involved. Good, dedicated and living on the cheap. Let's help them make a difference in the lives of families who are struggling.

Plus, they like disc golf and Chipotle . . .

Sadly, there is another fundraiser tournament in the KC area on the same day for a very similar organization. My company is going to sponsor my four person team there, so I won't make it to this event. I will surely send some love and $$ that way.

We will miss you at the event.  It should be a lot of fun though for those of you who are able to make it.  We have bands lined up, food donated by Chipotle (for those who participate in the tournament), cool raffle prizes and other fun activities.

If you are able, be sure to pre-register on our website:

We're excited to have two musical groups from Kansas City at Community Harvest in the Park: Rob Foster and Dudes (http://robmusicianfoster.com/), a jam band, and the bluegrass/folk group The Burnt Ends! They'll both be playing during the afternoon on Saturday, October 5 at Kessler Park/Cliff Drive.  Don't need to play in the tournament to enjoy the free music.
