**UPDATE** NATIONAL COLLEGIATE DISC GOLF CHAMPIONSHIPS - DAY 1
After a long car ride through periodic rainstorms, the KSUDGC Nationals team arrived in North Augusta, SC shortly after 2:00pm. Players were greeted at the Hippodrome Disc Golf Complex by staff members where we picked up our excellent player's packs. These included a dry-fit NCDGC jersey, a prototype Innova G-Star Daedalus, a DGA Torrent, as well as vouchers for a commemorative NCDGC Pro Roc and lunch.
A Hott Shots putting competition was also held immediately after checking in. This putting game featured light-weight Innova Sonics and the Innova DISCatcher Traveler basket. Stacks of five putters were laid out at five increments with different point values assigned. Travis Bailey was the K-State team high scorer.
After a quick drive back to the hotel to get checked in and unload personal luggage, we returned to the Hippodrome complex to walk through the opening course for tomorrow's team doubles rounds, Hogback Pine Valley. We will be playing a 4-person team format tomorrow on the Hogback and Old Glory courses amongst 39 other 1st Round teams to earn a berth in the Championship division. 1st Round teams finishing 1-20 will join the 20 Bye Seed teams in the Championship division while 1st Round teams finishing 21-40 will join the First Flight division.
It's shaping up to be an exciting tournament, so be sure to tune in when you can at www.discgolfplanet.tv and follow us during the event. Wish us luck!

Good luck in Iowa this weekend. Hope you guys get qualified for Nationals!
(Be sure to keep an eye on the nasty weather & maybe leave extra early too... )

Just wanted to get some feedback for a potential fundraiser. There was a little bit of discussion at our last meeting about producing t-shirts that we could sell to help raise money for competition/travel expenses. Here's a quick design I put together. We can have these made by The Graphic Edge for $5.99 each ($7.49 for XXL+).

**AMES' COURSES** From Scott Carpenter: "Yep, I've played both of the Ames courses one time on the way up to Minnesota four years ago. Oh, there was a lot of mud on both of them. Carroll Marty - I'm kind of surprised this course is only rated 3.50, because I really liked it. I suppose what gets it dinged is its length, even from the "pro" tees. But IMO the wooded holes, transition holes, and elevation makes up for it. Something that you're going to see there that we don't have a lot of here ... more

Carroll Marty - I'm kind of surprised this course is only rated 3.50, because I really liked it. I suppose what gets it dinged is its length, even from the "pro" tees. But IMO the wooded holes, transition holes, and elevation makes up for it. Something that you're going to see there that we don't have a lot of here in KS is wooded tunnel shots, some of which are going to have an incline/decline. Good practice might be going to some of the newer Fairmont holes and trying to see how far you can laser a midrange or putter. Another good drill might be finding spots where you gotta get around some foliage to park an approach to the basket (or at least back out to the fairway). Your team will undoubtedly find one of those trouble spots.
ISU (Stable Run, 13th Street) - I wish I could remember more about this course other than the fact that the local who gave me a tour brought a machete with him. Its apparently had flood problems over the years, and when I visited was a few weeks after one of those floods, obviously with everything so wet, they couldn't mow it, so everything was growing. It was in terrible shape, hence, I saw no point in taking pictures. I don't remember it being terribly elevated. It had dual tees, and actual dual baskets.
I did find a course map and tee signs on the ISU website. Hope this helps.

Hope that was of help. Best of luck to the KSU team."

Disc Golf is once again in the top 1/4 for sport club point standings! Points are awarded to clubs for being highly active and organized (completing required paperwork on time, attending officer meetings, fundraising, traveling, hosting events). The point standings system is a factor in determining our annual SCC Budget Allocation.
We are currently sitting in 7th out of 29 total club teams with 190 points. Keep up the good work guys!

Please leave suggestions/ideas for a back-up plan for determining the team that will be competing in Ames, IA in the event that the snow/weather prevents the completion of tryout rounds.

Guys, continue to ask for sponsorship help. We are hundreds of dollars short for the next few upcoming tournaments. We desperately need support from family and friends!

Vinyl Banner sale is on again! Unless we pay for faster shipping we wouldn't get it here in time for the tournament so maybe Thursday we could discuss having a banner and Josh you should bring a copy of the design you made up to the meeting. Here is the link to the deal. http://slickdeals.net/permadeal/105524/build-a-sign---3x6-personalized-vinyl-banner
