Yep! From the NCDGC website: "Students who graduate in the Fall of the current school year are eligible to compete in National Championships and Qualifier events the following Spring."

Ben Nispel   February 18 at 10:23am

Nice! Well I'll be heading up with Tim for the ice bowl this weekend so I'll see you fellas then!

Tim Nispel   February 19 at 8:55pm

These courses are pretty decent, Stable Run is quite a bit more wooded, and Carroll Marty is a bit more open with a couple longer holes if I remember right. We have our work cut out for us with these haha.

Update (9/26): Contacted the Little River Disc Golf Club (hometown club) and Discs Unlimited about sponsorships. Neither of them were available when I called, but I will follow up with them when I get a chance.

Josh Carroll   September 26, 2013 at 3:18pm

^^^ Followed up with the Little River group and sent the forms to the club director. Sounded enthusiastic about getting their names out there and helping the K-State team. Possible GOLD level sponsor ($100), should hear back from him next week.
