Sign Up, Show Up
Now that you've signed up to participate, it is important that you show up for events and know what is required. Time and effort goes into scheduling each event to ensure the games run smoothly. Forfeits upset the scheduled event and take away from the spirit and competition of the games. Penalty points will be assessed to those individuals or teams who do not show up for a bracketed event (or golf).
Bring your ID in case you need to provide it. If you are unable to show an ID at your event, you will be forfeited from the game.
If you're unable to participate in an event, you can get a substitute. If you registered in Challenge Manager (and are in the same age group) you can still signup for an event. If you need help finding a sub, email Paula Nigro.
When are the KCCC events held?
KCCC events are held for 9 weeks from late April through June. Events take place on weekdays and weekends. Weekday events begin after 5 pm and weekend events run throughout the day.
What is Challenge Manager and why does it require my birthdate?
KCCC created this online software to allow employees to create a profile, sign an electronic waiver and select events. It connects each company with their employees.
Several of the KCCC events are divided into age categories for participation, scoring and medal distribution. Submitting your birth year in Challenge Manager enables you to compete in the appropriate age category. All participants compete based on their age as of December 31, 2016.
How does KCCC handle event cancellations?
Since weather can be different throughout the metro area, please check the rainout line, 913.312.8843. It is updated with a message, if an event is cancelled. If there is no message, the event remains as scheduled. Delays will be handled onsite.
How do I get my award?
INDIVIDUAL AWARDS - Medals are awarded to the top three finishers in each event. Most medals are awarded onsite, after the event.
TEAM AWARDS - Team awards will be given to the top eight companies in each division. These awards will be presented at the KCCC Awards Celebration.
