Looking for someone from DSM (or anywhere, but you'll have to drive DSM) to carpool for this tournament and the Columbia Tournament, looking at making it a weekend trip .......

Thanks to those who contacted me ...... looks like we are all set for the trip

I have been trying to talk myself into going to Kan-u-wyco. my plan was to play the osky tournement and then leave from there and head to KC. Really just want to get out of the snow, and wyco is a fun course, one of my favorites that we played during worlds this year.

Let me think about it a couple days and ill let you know if im interested Corey

WyCo is a great beginning of the year event. I recommend it to anyone interested. It will fill up (I think it has for the past 3 years), so if you get there Sunday and aren't registered, you'll be watching rather than playing.

Kan-U-Wyco is full ......... The PDGA site says 72, but rest assured it is full. Dick Parker, the TD, is just waiting for the rest to come through from the PDGA ........ if you didn't get in by yesterday then you’re shit out of luck.

The first times I played Wyco I wasn't a big fan. The average length of a hole is about 457 (416 for the layouts I've played, usually not in 100% tips). There's about 8 hole that are twenerish depending on how far you can throw and depending on the weather. The course is a lot like Graceland in the fact that about half of these tweeners become great par 4's with the wind; the other half bonus 2's with light to no wind (places where you can do a lot of scoring). They have 4 must duce sub-300 ft holes and 4 others between 325-350 that I know I should be able to duce, but if not no biggie, but they are the ones that if I miss I know I'll have to make up a couple of those strokes on the par 4's.

Over the last 2 years I've really grown to like Wyco. First because I can throw farther and can reach more of the pins. And secondly there are very few times in a season were you get to play defensive disc golf and let the others implode; this is one of them. It's a long course, but more of a mental challenge than a physical one. If you like the style of golf at Graceland (windy and long) than you will like Wyco.
