30th Annual Kansas City Wide Open - June 1-3

Postby Timko » Tue May 15, 2012 8:49 am

As your 2012 disc golf tour comes to life, the Kansas City Flying Disc Club, in association with Disc Golf World and Dynamic Discs, invite you to join us for our celebration of the 30th Annual Kansas City Wide Open Disc Golf Tournament. That’s right, it’s been 30 years of fun and Frisbee in the City of Fountains! The first weekend in June is our spot and we have been working diligently to put together an amazing program of activities for all of our disc golfing guests. As most of you know, there is a rich and vibrant disc golf history here in KC, and we hope that many of you who are part of that history, will return to play and to share some memories.

This year’s Celebration will be the biggest yet as we welcome players for this PDGA NT, A-Tier, and B-Tier extravaganza! You’ll have a chance to enjoy the sights, sounds, and tastes of Kansas City at the Saturday Evening Soiree featuring the wild and wacky “XXX Games,” LIVE music, a meet-and-greet with former Champions, and a world record attempt. But don’t forget what awaits ALL of you who come to our wonderful city—some of the nation’s most-heralded disc golf courses and a Kansas City disc golf community and staff who is honored to host once more and eager to make your trip here memorable. Don’t miss this historical celebration of one of America’s most acclaimed disc golf tournaments!

About the Events
We’ve organized this tournament differently from previous years in that we’re running three PDGA-sanctioned events concurrently. Because the purpose of the National Tour is to feature the top players in the Men’s and Women’s Open divisions, the NT will include only these divisions. The A-Tier will consist of all the age-based pro divisions and all advanced divisions. Both of these events will play the same five 18-hole courses over three days. The B-Tier is a two-day, three-round event for the intermediate, recreational, novice, and older junior divisions. The new and developing players in these divisions will get to play three of the same courses that the pros and advanced play.

We hope that you’ll choose the 30th Annual Kansas City Wide Open. In addition to a lot of great golf and several off-the-course opportunities to enjoy Kansas City and other disc golfers, we will have player packages for all divisions and generous payouts.

For more information, including sponsorship and volunteer opportunities, contact: Event Director, Crazy John Brooks at 913.220.0591 or Competition Director, Rick Rothstein at 816.471.3472.

If you have any questions, please post them here and I'll do my best to answer them. I'm laying out Rosedale, Swope, Blue Springs, and Waterworks.

Splitting the chuckers off into a technically separate two-day B tier is a good call. Not needing to take the Friday off makes it a lot more attractive to the Int/Rec out-of-town crowd.

We thought the same thing. Also, it means TDing on only 2 courses on Friday which means less people taking off work to volunteer. It also pushes up the Advanced divisions with people who want to play all 5 courses.
