This weekend marks the 30th anniversary of the Kansas City Wide Open Disc Golf Tournament, founded in 1983 at Shawnee Mission Park. Players from all over the country (and a few from overseas) will travel to KC to compete for over $30,000 in cash and prizes.
KC Wide open competition begins Friday, June 1st at 8 a.m. for all players. Other events include the Saturday Night Soiree (June 2, 4 to 9 p.m. at the Swope Park Main Bandstand), which will feature the “Triple X Games” (sponsored by HeroDisc USA), DJ Cyrus D, food, beverages and a meet-n-greet with former KCWO Champions.
The top Men’s and Women’s groups will tee off at Swope Park Disc Golf Course (Gregory Blvd. and Elmwood Ave) at 1:30 pm, Sunday June 3rd, for the “Final 9,” which is always exciting for the massive gallery. The 2012 Champions will be crowned immediately following the Final 9.
The general public is welcome and encouraged to attend as there will be Flying Disc Dogs, food, beverages, disc golf merchandise, awards and a free concert in the park featuring Counter Culture ending at 8:30 p.m.
