Regular Cali wouldn't have 2 shots from every lie, but double Cali would. With double Cali you are also paying two entry fees. So, in that case, since you are paying as two people I would think you should get two cracks at the ACE fund. Assuming of course that you payed double ACE as well.
Here is the way that the meeting took place a few years back, ok almost a decade ago.
With a Cali player, double Cali we'll say for the sakes of argument here, you get 2 attempts at each hole, which is 1 more than any other player. For ACE FUND PURPOSES ONLY, any second shot that the same player throws shall not constitute an actual "Club Ace Fund Payout" You already had a chance with the first throw to get it in, as did the remainder of the entire divisions. It is an ACE FUND. A Hole in ONE throw fund, not a hole in as many throws as it takes me fund.
The ace fund is determined by the initial throw of a player teeing off from the assigned pad for that particular location that the basket is located. Single Cali (Heil Keiser's comment) is not again the FIRST THROW ON THE HOLE, which is what all aces are considered. At all leagues, your first attempt is your only attempt to seek ace fund money. Though you may have the option to pay double to win the take home money for the day, you still only get 18 shots to get the ace fund money, not 36. If this were the case, why couldn't everyone just pay double, take 2 drives every shot and try it?
This only occurs in the doubles events that we have, and is small consideration for the rest of the playing time. The simple matter is that you have an ace fund where EVERYONE gets 18 CHANCES to get an ACE. Some people get 36 CHANCES to card a 1 on the scorecard, but only 18 to get an ACE as everyone else playing does. You want to pay double to get an extra throw to win the money on the night, go for it, but you are not paying double to hit an ace fund.
It has been that way for close to 10 years now. I think that this conversation took to the order of business back in 2001 where the EC made the determination that you only get 18 chances to hit an ace regardless of how much money you pay. As for paying $5, I think that it is worth $5 to seee someone throw the disc in basket, so I would pay the $5, and also chide them incessently for missing their first shot the rest of the round. But then wouldn't you expect that from me?
