Better make sure to bring a lunch Joe.  This one clarifies that there will be a lunch break, not just "lunch" implying that it was provided...

Kinda interested to check out these new baskets!

Don't know if I can make it out for the all day tourney, but I would definitely like to come see the course and try out the baskets. Maybe donate to the Cats!

Written on FB event page "$5 of the each entry will be donated to either the KU or K-State disc golf team. Come show your support, for a great cause. Lets see which team can get the most support."

I'm trying to get an answer on whether or not they will allow us to donate and play just one round.

Got the go ahead.  They are encouraging all players to come check out the course.  If you can play the tourney, great.  But come take a look either way.

I'm going to try to make it out there for the 10:00 round, but might be later depending on how much Halloween Party hangover is sticking around. 
Gotta figure out how much I want to see the Chiefs take the Browns to Pound-town.

After the 54 Hole Smithville extravanga, I was wondering how much pep this old fart would have left for 2 rounds on Sunday.
Glad to know we can possibly do a 1-rounder.

That's what I was just thinking.

Does anyone know if there's gonna be a prize money paid out or discs or what? No mention of that anywhere. I'm headed out there now to see if they've started setting up the baskets.

I believe there was about 20-25 people out.

Beautiful day, and a fun course. 
They did not get the fairways mowed as wide as they wanted on about 6 holes, so there was 25 foot fairways instead of 50ft.  Which created quite a bit of OB shots. But playing a safe shot, could avoid taking too many strokes.

There is a few tweaks that will need to be done to the course, but otherwise, there is a lot of fun shots, and a few water-hazards(I think 10 or so discs found their way into the lake.

I only know some Open scores
Babbit     52   47   99   (With a killer ace on hole 4 to finish round 1, but not in ace fund:()
Hesting   51   51   102
Q Street  54   53   107
Lazzo      55   59   114
Weaver   59   57   116
Wizzby    65   56   121
??
??
??     

Overall, was a great day, and only about a 40 minute drive from my house in PV.  I believe you can camp at the lake too.  Not sure when the course will be put in for good, but it will eventually have tees, multiple pins, etc.  Probably next spring/summer.

Dennis dropped off the baskets sunday night to the city dept.  Basket installation may start in the next couple weeks we hope.  Depending on how much rain falls this week, I may try and get out and trim a few trees where needed. Have to see how quick the city gets out and mows down the patches of weeds on certain holes and widen a few of those tight fairways. Talked with steve friend at the city rec dept. Last night. Passed on that eveyone that played sunday would like to see the basket stay in the shelter on hole 10.  He's gonna run it by the city manager and see if they will okay it. Lets keep our fingers crossed. Was out there tonight, they mowed the green grassy area along the road and lake area ( only one day late) lol. I live in baldwin and will keep everyone  updated on all progress on what's been done out there.
