The neighborhoods just south and southwest of the course are leveled. I just thought you might like to know that you are one of the privileged to get to play a very young but promising course that is now, more than likely, extinct. While the course being destroyed is not even a blip on the radar compared to the fatalities and property destroyed, the course will be missed by those of us that loved to play it.
When the dust settles, put up a temporary course nearby to raise money and we'll all come out to support you! My in-laws are in nearby Shawnee which was hit the day before... just not as bad.

So let's put on a huge event this fall to show the community what we the disc golf family can do!

^^Good idea. I'm sure the Moore DGA, Sooner Disc and the OKCDGA would be willing to do something like this. I know the golfer's would support it.

Assuming travel costs (meaning similar distances from you and free place to stay at all) and field size and quality was the same, which of these A Tier events would you choose to play?

1. Great money, average course, out of the way for an NT two weeks later.
2. Decent money, average course, on the way to an NT two weeks later.
3. Terrible money (minimum added), great course, great experience.

just look at the weekend of June 22-23rd for your answer lol. 5 a tiers the weekend before beaver state fling. kamloops out of the way but probably best added money per player, Minnesota has very good courses and a well run event with good(but not great) payout. Colorado is on the way to beaver state but bad courses and meh payout. zoo town also on the way, weaker competition and decent payout(if i remember past years correctly)

top pros reg'd for minn, zoo, and kamloops with no one signed up for Colorado or st. louis.

Considering at least one player is signed up for more than one event, I'm still curious.

Actually, the Zoo Town Open right now has half again as many MPO players signed up with nearly double the 1000+ players & nearly twice as many FPO players as the Majestic. The payouts wont match the Majestic & the added cash won't match Kamloops, but our payouts will be better than most A tiers & the competition will be top notch!! I think you said earlier you were going to Kamloops, but sure would like to see both you & Britany here in MT!!

Paul, just wondering how you liked playing The Legion of Doom on my home course? I wanted to take a quick minute and say thanks for throwing a round on Thursday before the tourney with my son Dehrik, it totally made his day. He ended up winning Rec and will be moving up to Int in his next tourney.
