Memories from the 2018 KC Diva Feeva and Women’s Global Event

Memories from the 2018 KC Diva Feeva and Women’s Global Event

It’s been a few weeks now since this years KC Diva Spring Feeva and Women’s Global Event and we have more photos and video to share with everyone.  We’ve really enjoyed all the stories and feedback.

The proud victories.

The first time tournament experiences.

The reunions of traveling players and new friendships formed.

The funny champagne stories and other shenanigans.

And of course, the great disc golf played all weekend!

Keep the stories coming! If you have some moments captured on video or photo remember to use #2018WGE and #2018DIVAFEEVA in your posts so we can all enjoy them!  You can also submit your feedback directly to the PDGA here.

 

Together we create goose-bump moments!

Over the past 4 years, KC Diva Spring Feeva has evolved into something far beyond what we could have ever imagined.  There’s a special energy in the air that words just cannot explain but it stems from our shared love of the game and respect for each other. It’s a sisterhood and celebration and each year you bring more friends to the party. Cheers!

Columbia, Omaha and Iowa Ladies in the House!

Omaha Ladies

So fun to see all the women from other cities coming back to Kansas City’s Diva Feeva every single year. Their numbers are growing and we’re definitely going to be incorporating a special award in coming years for the most Team Spirit!

It’s especially rewarding to see these ladies head back to their home towns with a freshly ignited passion to grow women’s disc golf in their area.

The Girlfriend’s Guide to Disc Golf is incredibly grateful to Rhonda Crosby for giving us the opportunity to participate in KC Diva and film at the event. We value all of the hard work that went into this tournament and the genuine love we felt for all the women who attended the event. This is an excellent example of how we should be growing the sport for women, and we at GG2DG hope to emulate this in Iowa.– Sammi Tounsley

80 events worldwide, far surpassing the previous record of 62 in 2016.

There was so much excitement and energy leading up to this years Women’s Global Event and we all felt connected, even before the event itself. I’m sure I speak for all of you, how grateful we are to the PDGA Women’s Committee for all they have done with the WGE and women’s disc golf.

My favorite part of the Women’s Global Event is hearing the stories of ladies who made this their first tournament ever. Women’s tournaments in general are the best place to start off your tournament experience, and I’m so happy that many women decide to take the leap of faith each year. Events like the KC Diva Spring Feeva make ladies feel so welcome and supported that it creates the best foundation to build our field sizes.– Valarie Doss, PDGA Women’s Committee Chair

Kansas City raised $200 for the Disc Golf Foundation

Thank you to everyone that played the Spring Feeva Dubs on Friday hosted by Launchpad Disc Golf. Twenty percent of all proceeds went to support the ‘Disc Golf Foundation’. They are partnering with Throw Pink to coordinate funding eligible for Girl Scout activities such as: providing equipment, instructional disc golf clinics, and supporting troop disc golf outings. We were able to donate $200 to this great cause!

 

 

 

Our Juniors have grown over the past 4 years!

 

The Juniors played 2 rounds on the Diva Green Course. They were filmed by Sammi Tounsley their first round. You can see a sneak peek on the Facebook Page here. We can’t wait to see the completed video coverage!

 

THE ACES

 

THE COURSES

 

Due to the loss of our beloved Swope Disc Golf Course, we had to choose a new home for Diva Feeva. We ultimately chose Rosedale Disc Golf Course, (Up Top course) which has been home to our women’s league for many years. 

When registration opened in January 2018, we had a cap of 90 players.  Five days later, we filled and began a waitlist! Exciting yes! The problem was that there were several other ladies that wanted to play but were not able to pull the registration trigger yet. It’s a Women’s Global year afterall and the more the merrier.

To increase the field beyond 90, we needed two courses but having ladies split across 2 separate locations is just not how we roll. Rosedale has two courses, Up Top and Down Under. However, not all of the Down Under course holes were appropriate for our beginner friendly event so we set out to figure out a way to create our own “Diva Feeva” signature courses.

To accomplish this, we reached out to some Kansas City folks we knew that could help with the new course designs to make  Diva Green and Diva Pink courses a reality.

With an estimated 200 hours of work in the weeks before, our local volunteers were able to create these two unique courses using the existing courses multiple pin settings and some temporary tee pads. We received compliments all weekend on how wonderful the courses flowed and how beautiful and well maintained the park was.

 

Those flags were sexy!

Having the holes on each course clearly marked and identified was going to be key for overall play so we color coordinated with our own custom flags! Flags were also identified by the course sponsor. We’re extremely grateful to Dynamic Discs Kansas City (Green Course) and KC Disc (Pink Course) for their course sponsorships!

 

After Event Fun

Our new photo booth backdrop took a beating in the morning storm but eventually dried out. Happy to see the ladies having fun and using it.

 

No Diva Feeva tournament is complete without our traditional Flowers and Mimosas!

 

Banana CTP winners! A new tradition added this year. *see 2017 Diva Feeva for back story 🙂

 

Kansas City Supports Women’s Disc Golf!

I’d like to include a final thank you. Not only to our generous sponsors but to our entire Kansas City disc golf community! We have one of the oldest and most active disc golf clubs in the country and this is evident by the number of people that come out to support us. The KC Flying Disc Club and it’s members have encouraged and supported us from the beginning and continue in many ways throughout the year.  Please continue to support our sponsors and Kansas City community of friends.

 

HALL OF FAMERS IN THE HOUSE

We were honored to have not one but FOUR Disc Golf Hall of Fame inductees at KC Diva Feeva this year: Rick Rothstein, Crazy John Books, Lynne Warren and Duane (CD) Steiner.  I really wish we had taken a photo of them together.  FAIL!

 

LOOKING AHEAD TO KC DIVA FEEVA 2019

We’ve already been discussing some preliminary plans for Diva Feeva 2019! No time like the present while it’s still fresh in our minds. Look for a survey coming soon because we’d love your feedback.

Hope to see you at an upcoming KC Divas league night or other women’s event this season. Omaha Ladies Open on July 14th is next stop on the calendar!

Much Love, Peace and Disc Golf!
Ben and Rhonda Crosby

1st Annual Ankeny Ladies & Junior’s Classic Disc Golf Weekend

1st Annual Ankeny Ladies & Junior’s Classic Disc Golf Weekend

I love seeing women step into the role of tournament director to start more women focused events. Alison Wiley, a long time disc golfer from Ankeny Iowa, is doing just that but has also created a special event for Junior players as well!
You’ll find registration for both events on DiscGolfScene here.

I asked Alison to share with us more about this unique, fun and family friendly event weekend.

After years of enjoying the atmosphere of women’s only tournaments I thought it was time to create our own here in the Des Moines area.
I would like to cordially invite you to the 1st Annual Ankeny Ladies & Junior’s Classic Disc Golf Weekend. Ladies will play Saturday, April 21st and Juniors (kids and teens) are on Sunday, April 22nd. There will be lots of fun disc golf and prizes for closest to the pin and “ring of fire” putting games. It will be held at Heritage Park in Ankeny Iowa. For the first year, there will be homemade trophies for 1st place in all divisions. These will be PDGA sanctioned disc golf tournaments to grow the sport in our local area. All PDGA women’s divisions will be offered and all juniors divisions as well.

After years of enjoying the atmosphere of women’s only tournaments I thought it was time to create our own here in the Des Moines area. My love of women’s only tournaments stems from attending the United States Women’s Disc Golf Championships in Peoria Illinois from 2002-2007. I had never felt such a feminine camaraderie in such a male dominated sport until then. Naturally when the KC Divas started hosting their own women’s only tournament in 2015 I had to be a part of it! Four years later and I wouldn’t miss it for the world.

I also grew up playing in the juniors division at a time when there weren’t many other children playing disc golf. I now have children of my own and it’s time for them to play disc golf in the junior divisions and play with other kids who share their same passion.

We hope to grow this event exponentially by next year so be sure to check out our inaugural events. It’s time to grow the sport within these two realms and we would love for you to attend.

Sincerely,
Alison Wiley

Divas Fall & Winter Schedule

Divas Fall & Winter Schedule

Less daylight and cooler weather means the Disc Golf Divas are on the move again. Monday September 25th 2017 is our last Ladies Night Out for the season at Rosedale. We’ll be back at Swope on Sundays for our winter league beginning October 8th.

Something new this year is the addition of Disc Golf Diva’s Brunch. One Sunday a month we will meet for brunch before our round at a designated home of a Diva brunch hostess.

photo from Etsy

Ideally, we will play at each host’s home course after brunch but it will be up to her on the course and format we play that week. If the weather is not good for playing disc golf, maybe some board games!  I would like to try to limit how much responsibility each hostess has in terms of food and drink so let’s all plan to bring something or make a donation to help offset that.

My hope for these monthly gatherings in each others homes is that it brings us all that much closer, but also opens up new opportunities to get more ladies involved. In fact, I’ll be giving prizes for bringing someone new.

I’ll be personally hosting our first Divas Brunch at my house in Old Hyde Park/Midtown area beginning at 10:30 am on October 8th. Followed by 1 round at Swope (approx. 1:00 pm start time.)

Below is the schedule for Sundays for October 2017 through February 2018. I’ll keep this updated as we go along and if things change. Thank you to all the ladies that volunteered as a Brunch Hostess. This should be fun!

Thank you again to all our SPONSORS and VOLUNTEERS for making this event possible!  We are proud and honored to host this event in Kansas City and partner with the best disc golf club in the country, the Kansas City Flying Disc Club.  The Kansas City disc golf community has been behind this event from it’s inception and many look forward to it all year. From monetary and product donations to resources, supplies and an overwhelming number of volunteers and spectators, you are the wind beneath our wings!

Perfect spring weather, beautiful and talented ladies, supportive gentlemen AND DISC GOLF! We had quite a bit of rain here in Kansas City leading up to this event but we could not have asked for better weather the entire weekend. We kicked off on Friday and celebrated with a doubles event followed by a fun happy hour theme.  It was hugs and high fives throughout the day as players, caddies and volunteers arrived. The great weather brought out a record 58 teams to play in the Spring Feeva Dubs.  Happy hour with a complimentary taco bar and beer was a hit. Music and more gathering, chatting and fun times through the evening.

Saturday morning it was go time and the atmosphere and energy continued.  Here are a few highlights.

Jennifer Allen competed in Diva Feeva for the first time this year and with an amazing score of 48 in round 1, helped her ultimately take home the win. We had an extremely talented field of 13 Open women including our 2016 champion, Paige Bjerkaas.

 

 

For our Junior divisions this year, we tried something new. With feedback from one of our local juniors, we designed a junior course within the main course layout using temporary tee pads.  It was a shorter version but still had some challenging shots. These girls are so adorable together and inspiring to watch. Keep your eye on these young ladies in the future!
 
 
 

 

As is our tradition and how we roll here at KC Diva Feeva, the ladies were greeted with Roses and Mimosas as they came in from round 2 and cards were turned in.

 

 

 

 

 

 
Naturally there were a few ‘technical difficulties”. For example, the CTP flag did not make it out during round 2 for the AM divisions. Leave it to a group of women to find a solution and not make that a big issue – they used a banana instead. Debbie Polkinghorne was our first Banana prize winner!

 

 

The after effect ripples that this event creates is still happening! The ladies leave super-charged and on fire to get back home and get ladies together to play. We’ve seen posts from other women’s disc golf groups and leagues already making plans – love it! Shout out to all the ladies that returned to KC Diva Feeva this year and brought their friends! That’s what keeps this event growing.

Remember, the 2018 KC Diva Spring Feeva will also be a participating PDGA Women’s Global Event (WGE) and we hope to accommodate up to 144 women competitors!

We appreciate all the kind and encouraging words we’ve received. We welcome all feedback so please feel free to share your comments below.

Hope to see you all here in Kansas City in May 2018.

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.

Be sure to like Heartland Women’s Disc Golf Series on Facebook!

2016 Diva Feeva Wrap Up

On May 14th at Swope Park Disc Golf Course in Kansas City, Mo an extraordinary event occurred. 89 ladies from 8 different states, from ages 7 – 60, shared a disc golf experience like no other here in the Midwest. 81 of the 89 actually competed, and for many it was their very first tournament experience.

Video credit: Melissa Petrin

Thank you to Melissa Petrin for her hard work filming and doing interviews to help capture the event. She was also was responsible for getting us covered in the local media. Check out the video that aired on Time Warner MetroSports Channel.

This has been a dream come true for myself and my assistant director, Amy Crowe. Just seeing that many women competing and having a great time together brought a few tears throughout the day. Our mission with the Kansas City Disc Golf Divas has always been to grow the sport for women. We started doing this locally with our leagues and other activities. Now with this event, we have a greater reach and can share the sport with women in the entire Midwest. More women playing disc golf and more friendships made that we hope are for a lifetime.

This year we were also a part of the 3rd biennial PDGA Women’s Global Event (WGE) and over 1600 other women across 11 countries and 28 states also competed simultaneously in events like ours! Collectively, this created the largest PDGA sanctioned event for a single demographic ever. With WGE events held in the United States, Canada, Finland, Sweden, Norway, Australia, Estonia, Iceland, United Kingdom, Germany, and Japan, the WGE reached more new countries and countless new players from around the world.

Thanks and big hugs to Valarie Jenkins, Sara Nicholson and the entire WGE planning team for their hard work and dedication to making this such an amazing event. Read more about this  international success story here!

Thank you once again to all our fabulous sponsors of the KC Diva Spring Feeva! Be sure to check out our final sponsor page here with a list of their businesses and websites.  Please be sure to thank them for helping us bring this event to Kansas City.

Thank you to our friends and volunteers for their assistance, encouragement, tips, and overall support that contributed to the success of this event.

The course was BEAUTIFUL thanks to Patrick Smith, Gary Birge and everyone else that played a part in setting up the Diva Feeva layout.

Special thanks and gratitude goes to Amy Crowe!  She has put in countless hours of work helping organize the event. She is a tremendous asset to our team and a great friend. I could not have done this with out her.

Last but not least I thank my husband, Ben Crosby, who has supported me all these years with my mission to promote women’s disc golf. I can’t imagine having another Tournament Director for this event.

See you next year!
Much Love,
Rhonda Crosby
Co-Tournament Director and O.D. (original diva)
