LOL...it doesn't seem as so, it being a sanctioned event. So Tufluk and I will have to shoot advanced grandmasters. 8)

Yes the PDGA doesn't offer an Int. Masters Division, but you can still offer one at this event.

Simply offer an Intermediate Division, but limit the event to only Masters Aged competitors; in essence you've just offered an Int. Masters Division. Quite a simple solution really.

JS its not a bad idea. Lots of people find this sport at a more mature age, and have to play in Adv Masters divisions on the tourney scene. It would be nice if these guys and gals could play in a more appropriate and competitive division. The PDGA isn't offering such a thing, but its doable at this event (and other Masters only events); I think there would be a lot of interest.

I think the reason for no int masters is the PDGA figures by the time a guy reaches 40-50 yrs old, he's been playing 10+ years and has skills to match adv or pro. There are few like me who take up the sport at 55, and want to start tourney play a couple years later. I'm happy to play whatever division that will have me. I play w/ young guys 90% of the time anyway. Happy to have bugslayer as a cardmate no matter the division.

I agree, i just enjoy being able to play, however it would be nice to play with some people my age once in a while instead of playing in either begginers or Int brackets. I wish they had a few more masters only tourneys around, but i'm thankfull to just be able to do any tourney since i started discing last year in my mid 40s. I wish i could do this tourney so bad but it wont happen this year.

I was able to throw a few rounds at this park last summer, it moved up to my second fav place to play right behind wildcat. I cant wait to play another round there this summer.

Steady, I think the week before this event is the Challenge. LOD is the weekend of the 19th, Challenge is Memorial Day, and this is the week after that (also KC Wide Open weekend).
