News for the 2018 disc golf season

HAPPY HOLIDAYS, DISC GOLF DIVAS!
This is an especially busy time for all of us with the holidays just around the corner so I wanted to get a few things on your calendars. I also have some exciting news and plans for the 2018 season I want to share. Let’s use the time at our monthly brunches over the winter to discuss more.

2018 KANSAS CITY ICE BOWL CHALLENGE
The KC Disc Golf Divas will be challenging other disc golf groups or organizations to a fundraising contest. I’m talking Beer League, Dirty Birds, Launchpad, etc… we will be calling them out. The common goal: to help the Kansas City Ice Bowl reach its ambitious goal of raising $10,000 for Bishop Sullivan Center. There are some incentives for raising specific amounts of money. However, bragging rights for being the group that raises the most money will be an even greater reward. There is even a special traveling trophy in the works that will be a part of KC Ice Bowl for future years! Win or lose, it’s a great time for an even better cause! Pledge sheets available to download and print here. 

SAVE THE DATE: 2018 KC Diva Spring Feeva + PDGA Women’s Global Event
The 4th Annual KC Diva Spring Feeva is planned for Saturday May 12th 2018. We will also be a participating PDGA Women’s Global Event.

Are you interested in joining the 2018 Diva Feeva Planning Team? Please get in touch with Rhonda or Amy Crowe asap. We will be holding an open planning meeting in January where we hope to learn more about everyone’s unique skills and strengths to best benefit the team & event.

COMPETITIVE LEAGUE PLAY & BAG TAGS
Kaylee Kincaid will be running a competitive level league for us this winter. This will be in addition to our normal league. It’s a great opportunity to get some pro tips and prepare yourself for the 2018 disc golf tournament season. During these more competitive rounds, I would also love to see a return of our Disc Golf Divas bag tags. Dates to be added to schedule soon.

THE DISC GOLF DIVAS COMPETITION SCHOLARSHIP
We are in the process of developing a scholarship program that will help local women disc golfers that have a desire to compete in PDGA sanctioned events but do not yet have a commercial sponsor. More details and qualification outline to be announced on our website soon.

Announcing Heartland Women’s Disc Golf Series

Announcing Heartland Women’s Disc Golf Series

I am pleased to announce a new women’s series right here in the Midwest: the Heartland Women’s Disc Golf Series!

I founded the Kansas City Disc Golf Diva’s league in 2011 and following that success we hosted the first annual KC Diva Spring Feeva event in 2015. In 2016, it was also a Women’s Global Event (WGE) and we filled our event with 89 players, the second largest Women’s Global Event overall.

I say this to point out the promising growth we’ve seen in women’s disc golf here in the Kansas City area.

It’s been on my heart to expand our reach and spread the love to more women, especially in the lower Midwest states. This past November while attending the Director’s Cup in Indiana, I had the pleasure of meeting PDGA Women’s Committee member, Erin Oakley. In chats with Erin, who is also the organizer of the Midwest Women’s Disc Golf Tour, I was inspired to take a leap of faith and move forward.

The Heartland Women’s Disc Golf Series was born! Teaming up with ladies from other states, our mission is to plant the seeds and provide support and resources to grow women’s disc golf leagues and events in the lower Midwest states: Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Iowa and Oklahoma.

The 2017 schedule is below. We hope to add more events soon. Please contact us if you are interested in hosting a women’s only event or even starting a women’s league in your area. We don’t have all the answers but we’d be happy to share tips and our experience with you.
