Women’s Global Putting Extravaganza

Women’s Global Putting Extravaganza

In our recent conversation with Erin Oakley, she shared more information and the basic rules of the upcoming challenge. Women and girls of any age are welcome to participate and there will be random giveaways and prizes from different sponsors.

This weekend, May 9th and 10th, PDGA Women want to see women and girls of all ages post a live video of themselves putting. We will be going live with videos of random giveaways all weekend during the Extravaganza! Even a sweet custom disc prize for the best dressed! So make sure you vote for your favorite video by liking it!
 
Here is how it will work:
  1. Go Live in this group. Title your Live Video with your name, PDGA number if you have one, and location. At the beginning of your video, state your name, and location (Country/State).
  2. Throw anywhere from 10-20 putts. You choose from how far you want to throw. Don’t have a basket? No worries! Make any type of target, such as a tree (tape an x or a box on it), Putt into a laundry basket, through a tire swing, get creative!
  3. Regardless of how many putts you make, fill out the form, which will be available here the day we start. This will make you eligible for random drawings of prizes from our wonderful sponsors.
  4. Encourage your female friends to join. Tag a couple friends in your post after it is loaded.

Earth Day Trash To Treasure Challenge 

Earth Day Trash To Treasure Challenge 

In celebration of the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, we thought we would throw down a fun earth day themed challenge. With Covid-19 leaving so many of us confined to our homes, we’re searching for things to keep us busy and DIY projects are a great way to fight off boredom.

Basic rules of the challenge:

Use items like plastic bottles, grocery bags, aluminum cans, glass jars or bottles and other recyclables to create things that can be used in a new way; A centerpiece to your table for example.

  • You have to use at least 1 item that you would normally throw away, give away, or for those already recycling, put in your bins
  • Take before and after photos of your masterpieces 
  • You cannot spend more that $20 on additional supplies or accessories
  • It has to be something you’d actually want to keep or gift

Submit your before and after photos to us by noon on April 27th. Winners will be voted on and announced during Ladies Night In on Zoom at 6pm.

Ladies Night IN Mondays on Zoom

Ladies Night IN Mondays on Zoom

One thing is for sure among our disc golf community, we all miss our normal disc golf season! For many of us, this means disc golf league nights. For the ladies of Kansas City, we normally play at Rosedale Disc Golf Course on Monday nights. We have traditionally called it, Ladies Night Out. While we can’t meet at the course right now, we can still see each others faces and do our best to make each other smile and support each other!

Beginning Monday April 13th, we’re kicking off Ladies Night In. We’ll meet every Monday night at 6 PM on Zoom until we get the ‘2 minute warning’ and finally get to hear those all familiar sounds of laughter and chains crashing on the course. Based on recent news, we plan to host these Zoom get together’s until May 25th.

Diva Feeva canceled. We’re heartbroken!

Diva Feeva canceled. We’re heartbroken!
It is with heavy hearts that we are writing to you with news on our beloved KC Diva Spring Feeva.
 
The current impact of COVID-19 has led many tournaments to make hard decisions   As you may have heard, the PDGA Women’s Global Event has been postponed indefinitely.  Following this announcement, and with great consideration, we have decided to cancel the 2020 KC Diva Spring Feeva. 
 
We will start refunding players fees this weekend. (minus the processing fees that we don’t control)
 
A date later in the year is being discussed for a women’s event in Kansas City however it won’t be the KC Diva Spring Feeva as we know it.  It will be a new event with a different format.   We’ll share the details once we have them ironed out.
 
 
The other events in the Heartland Women’s Series presented by Dynamic Discs are still planned. 
The Fly Girls weekend (Women on Saturday and Juniors Sunday) in Des Moines is the next stop of the series. Let’s hope we have beaten this by then and can enjoy a weekend of disc golf together.
 
 We look forward to hosting the KC Diva Spring Feeva in May 2021.
  Stay safe and healthy.
