Sorry about that! It's the science teacher in me asking questions, not the disc player!

Well, that was rough for everyone involved. Even though I am looking forward to forgetting this last Saturday all together, I want to make some acknowledgements and give a brief explanation as to how and why the event transpired the way it did. Everyone knows that the weather is about the only thing a TD cannot control. With that said, I want to thank every person who came out to Stone Creek on Saturday. Like all the players, I anticipated a fun day of golf, laughs and contests. Instead of the one thing I wanted to be focused on all day (FUN), I had three other things occupying my mind and decision-making that morning (WEATHER, SAFETY, TIME); none of which worked in our favor. I’m not in the mind-set right now to type out a minute-by-minute replay of why the decision was made to call the tournament after the first round, but if any player feels they need an in-depth account of how/why I came to that unfortunate conclusion, feel free to call me after 6pm any time this week and I will be more than happy to walk you thru the series of events if it will help you understand that caaling-it was the best solution. 316-308-2263.

Weather - lightning delays, rain, cold wind… bunk ingredients for pace of play and over all fun

Safety - lightning, soaked-clothing in cool temperatures (many golfers were not equipped with water-resistant garments), footing on wet, muddy grounds and tee pads

Time - the Weather factor mentioned ate up all the time required to finish a second round regardless of afternoon weather conditions(which was more rain). Playing a second round into the dark with fully soaked clothing and steadily dropping temperatures brings the Safety factor back into play along with the previously mentioned safety issues regarding footing which is an ingredient for possible personal injury as well.

The Decision to Call-It – This is my one event per year. THE CALL WAS BASED ON THE 3 FACTORS MENTIONED ABOVE. Whether I know you on a personal level or not, it would affect me greatly if any fellow disc golfer was injured while participating in an event at which I am deemed “In Charge” of. It was hard enough seeing some of you leave mid-round and some of you shivering without a rain jacket or umbrella.

AGAIN – if you need an in-depth explanation of how these 3 factors interacted with each other and culminated into the final decision, I am more than happy to have that discussion with you in person, thru email, or a phone call.

Now on to some much needed thank yous! Please read thru these since the rain pretty much cancelled the opening speech at the player meeting. Every sponsor and person that contributed in any way did so with the full intention and hopes of helping provide a kick ass day of Golf and Fun. Even though the day did not go as planned, each person and business on this list needs to be acknowledged and thanked for their support.

MY WIFE – helping me prepare since January, keeping me organized and in line. I love you for always being there. She understood how crushed I was after Saturday and a nice big hug and helping her with some laundry :D really helped me calm down.

MY BROTHER – He’s always there to help me and is a key part of my life and without him The Handeye Supply Company would not be developing into the world’s leading Athletic Apparel Manufacturer.

Handeye’s Physics of Flight Bureau – Another essential part of what makes my ventures and dreams a reality. I consider these guys my brothers and the greatest of friends. I am very thankful for all their help and putting up with me when I go into to full A-Hole Mode. Wiggins, Fluty, Wyatt, and the Swede; Thank you for all your help and support.

Dynamic Discs – Jeremy and his staff have always supported me as a golfer and as an upcoming business entity. I wouldn’t have the Disc Golf resume I have now without the help and love from Dynamic Discs over the past 4 years. Disc molds and great bags are a couple of true testaments to all their hard work and passion for Disc Golf. GBO2013!!!!!!

Smitty – Another great friend and team mate. Always giving me much-needed advice and guidance. A great role-model when me and my brother first started. I strongly recommend getting a Hyzernaut Bag Tag and a KDGA membership and get to know this guy. You will learn something and have a ton of laughs getting some rounds in with him.

Jason Adkins – Luckily loves numbers and has helped me with the scores and payout the last 2 years. Without him on the scene, I might have just barricaded myself in the bathroom at Busters until everyone left. You would have been totally justified getting hammered and peeing all over Wiggins laptop after the awards.

Jason Childre – A great person to have on your side. Has helped wrangle up Derby sponsors all 3 years. Go-To-Guy in Derby. Hope to see you at some KDGA events this summer and at league more often bro!

MACEMAN – Brandon is another KDGA Veteran and good friend. His advice and guidance is priceless and he is always a pleasure to party and golf with. Play the Rock in Salina and/or the State Championships and have a beer with this dude. You will hear a funny story or two and hopefully it will involve Wild Wild West.

EVERYONE WHO HELPED SET UP AND TEAR DOWN – If i tried to list all of them, I might miss one or two...You know who you are. There were a couple I had never even met before that jumped right in to help with the tables, tents, gear, etc. THANK YOU SO MUCH for giving me a hand. Your deeds will not go unnoticed or unrewarded with me.

OUR SPONSORS – this list of people and businesses helped out in any way they could and most are repeat sponsors from the last 2 years, but we also had a handful of great people contribute. Thank you for your support and I look forward to having you involved in next year’s Fling 4: Unfinished Business in no particular order:
Disc Unlimited (Dennis, thank you for coming and thanks for always having a smile on your mug)
Wheat State Pizza Derby
Disc Golf Mania – The best disc golf shop in Wichita and will forever be the first store to ever carry Handeye Supply gear. Ryan is always stoked on golf and is always down to help the sport grow. Thanks for all you contributed this year. The Diamond Island’s basket was awesome! Looking forward to working with you this year on some fun projects.
Rock Liquor Derby – Sponsor all 3 years. One mile east of the course. Even if it is for a league or casual round and you need a refreshing adult beverage, stop be there for all your thirsty needs.
City of Derby – The city has put a ton of man hours in on clearing out and improving the overall look of the course and Golf needs the support of Cities like Derby.
ACDGC – President Michael Schoenhofer and all the board members work hard year round for no pay to make sure the club, its members, and the local disc golf scene continue to grow.
Team 916 – Jason and Mel Snodgrass, the Cejas and Blatnick had me laughing off the day’s heartache later that night at busters. Thanks for the beers and shots and the good times. I love kickin it with funny people. My kind of crowd for sure. I wish Dodge City was closer. Please bring as many Slingers as possible to Beloit this year. it will be way more fun having them on site.
Tyler Patzner – Drove a long way to be a part of Saturday. On behalf of science and earth in general; sorry for the weather. Thanks for the support and making the trip. Please message me a shipping address as I forgot to give you something Saturday night.
CoolDaddySlickBreeze – Bobby is a cool photographer…if you see him at an event snapping pics, ask him to get some shots of you while in the round. He will. Or if you just want a group pic with your travlin buddies. He’ll do it. give him your contact info or go to his website…there will be a link to view your pics and purchase them for a great price. He knows his angles and they will be great shots to show your grandkids.
Green Refinishing – Joe Boller is an up and coming local. He knows how to throw and I look forward to golfing with him when he moves up. I’ve seen a few pictures of his refinishing work and it looks very legit.
Little Busters Derby – Busters has given us a safe haven for partying all 3 years. Great staff, drinks and food. Another spot to hit up if you are passing through Derby for any reason or after a league or event. They have a tournament disc and tee sign from last year hanging on the wall so you know they are down with DG.
Bob Decker with Hiebert & Decker CPAs/CHTD – Big Bobby D couldn’t make it this year but has always supported the event and always has a good tale about his college drinking days. Pay up my tab, Dad!
Chris “The Duck” Dendurent – the Legend himself is another local hero who is always down to support things if it involves throwing discs of any kind. Thanks Duck! Ryan has something for you
Chuck Evans at Precision Masonry - Thanks for the support! I've never seen anyone throw that many minis at a mini basket in an hour :D
Freddy’s in Derby – Christian at Freddy’s has supported us in the past and is always ready to staff up when a herd of tossers come to town. league, event, passing thru…stop there for a bite to eat and let him know you’re a disc golfer.
Commerce Bank – My brother’s GF’s mother works for commerce and wanted to help us out a little. Thank you very much and we look forward to including Commerce Bank in our events in bigger and better ways next year.
Arty Hicks, Shane Crisler, Curtis Broadhurst, and Paul Hanger all kicked in some really sweet prizes that people battled it out for on the mini basket later that night at Busters

One more THANK YOU to the list above. The only thing I can really say after all is said and done is, “I am truly sorry the way things went Saturday. the good news is I highly doubt the future Flings will ever be THAT bad.” I hope to see you all in Derby next year, later in March or April. Sometimes it goes good, sometimes it goes bad. That’s the way she rolls , boys.”

I know from experience hosting school events that it is never and easy decision to call off a tourney/meet/or game. You did a huge amount of groundwork and it was a fun event even though it was cut short. With the lightning, mud and rain, I wholeheartedly support your decision and look forward to Fore!Fathers4. You did the right thing.

There really is no back-up plan for a day like we had. You do the best you can with what you are given. You never really know what is going to happen will it blow over? Will it stop and just soak the area? Will someone get killed by lightning. From the phone call we had at 6:00 AM until I turned my card in after the first round I was trying to figure out how we could get the most safe golf in. I was dreading the round the entire way to Derby...but managed to have a great time playing the round.

The right call was made in my Opinion.

I had a blast slippin and sliding around in the mud! Really liked how holes 9 and 12 were utilized - hanging basket and elevated basket - very cool! The after party was rad too. Considering the conditions, its a huge testament to the organizers - because the spirit of disc golf prevailed and lots of fun still occurred! Its great that nobody died but that would have been one hell of a way to go :P Thanks Crispin and crew for the sweet event! looking forward to the next

Crispin stuck with the plan, which was to have fun, and that wasn't happening on the course.
I would have stayed home if it had been raining at home.
In hindsight, plus a few memorable past nightmares, I would be in favor of delayed starts, especially with the instant radar available now. Give players options to wait or get out. It may mean fewer holes played but in better conditions to wait even 2-3 hrs.
Again, all credit to Crispin and the staff for a well planned event. If you start out guessing the weather you'll never win. With global warming March is the new April.
