If all goes well yes!

Andrew Arnold   September 22 at 2:22am

I wasn't able to catch the players meeting live to ask this question, but on hole 5 at Cliff, is the dz both for missed mando or ob drive? And then if ob after the drive (assuming a 2nd shot doesn't miss mando) will it play where it went ob or will it play at dz?

Jerry Patterson   September 22 at 11:25am

DZ is for missed mando only.

Excellent players pack Jerry. Thank you.

Max Barber   August 19 at 1:48pm

Sounds like some unique stuff! Thanks Jerry!

It's often a CTP for league or casual but how'd it work for tie-breaking in those divisions where 1st and 2nd have the same final score in the tourney?

Sorry Scott, I wasn't clear, I meant "CTP is often used to break ties" - was wondering how they were broken this weekend.

Rob Martin   September 27 at 12:37pm

PDGA rules provide how the ties are to be broken, section 109 of competition manual.

Jerry Patterson    September 25 at 11:24pm

Tee times are up for round 3!

After the tournament will all the lakes/ponds be raked for discs?

Where can we get the players pack if we could not make it on the 23rd. My daughter has gymnastics on Thursdays.

Jerry Patterson   September 24 at 1:31pm

You can lick them up when you play Water Works or Wilbur Young, depending on your pool and division

Todd Thurman   September 24 at 1:37pm

Player packs can be picked up starting Thursday at BKS Artisan Ale, Player Party. After that they will be available on course. A, B, E Pools Pick up at Water Works before your round at that course. C and D pools at Wilbur Young before your round at that course.

James Barry    September 23 at 7:22pm

Looking closer at Cliff Drive. There is a slight field near (39.113811547821044, -94.55250333552353) East Lookout Point & St. John's Avenue -- that could allow for some warm up drives.

Michael Krueger   September 23 at 3:16pm

For Cliff Drive, I recommend warm up throws at Maple Park, about a half mile to the west at the corner of Maple and Missouri. Tons of space there. A practice basket will be set up near the entrance of Cliff Drive.

Michael Krueger   September 23 at 3:17pm

Also, there is an uphill throw that can be made from the basketball courts near the basket for hole 4 in the KCWO 2021 layout.

Chris Neff    September 22 at 11:38pm

I haven't played Heritage, from the U disc photos it looks like it's somewhat cart friendly? I've played Cliff drive and waterworks and I would call those cart possible but not cart friendly.. just trying to give a frame of reference.

Todd Thurman   September 23 at 1:52am

Heritage is very cart friendly. Waterworks can be carted but it can get tiring. I would not recommend a cart at Cliff Drive. Holes 3 - Hole 7 are not fun with a cart.

Chris Neff   September 23 at 3:05am

Thank you!

Todd Thurman    September 22 at 7:35pm

Can Ronald Lawson and I have similar (doesn't have to be exact) Tee Times for the 1st round? We tend to carpool together. If not, no biggie. Thanks!

Hello, I just sent a request for a later tee time. If it is to late I understand but I just learned about something very last minute tonight.

There's about a 90% chance I'll have to withdraw due to an ankle sprain. If I do, can I still come to the players' party on Thursday to pick up my players' pack since I'm sure it's past the deadline for a refund?

I think I'm going to stick it out. I wrapped it tight and did a little field work yesterday evening and it seemed to be ok. Definitely not 100%, but good enough. As long as I don't reinjure myself, I should be fine. See you at the players' party.

Michael Krueger   September 22 at 2:42pm

Great! Hope that it stays good.

Stephen Chalmers   September 24 at 2:15am

Well, I tried to go to the players' party, but the line was down the street and there was nowhere to park, so I just went home. I'll check in at the course tomorrow. Thankfully, my tee time isn't at 7am since it's way out in Olathe.

Gary Lewis    September 20 at 8:08pm

Are the Covid restrictions not allowing a caddy or friend to join my card. I have a brother who is traveling from out of town and my wife would like to join me for one round is that OK? Obviously, Covid is not transmitted outdoors like it is indoors

Jerry Patterson   September 20 at 8:38pm

Caddies are allowed for this event!

Michael Krueger   September 21 at 2:46am

But you're responsible for your caddy.
