"USAF, Makani, and Firebirds, OH MY!" ;)

A MP tourney aka "Must Play"indeed. 

I still a'wonder about this upcoming "hobble, hobble, hobble" tourney. Tom has a gun? 

Does PDGA have a conceal 'n carry clause? ;)


In addition to normal player pack (for Ams), ALL players, PRO AND AM, that pre-register by Thursday, March 3rd will receive a brand new release from Innova Discs - the Makani. The Makani is not even approved yet by the PDGA, or even on the Innova website it is so new.

Innova's description of it:

The Makani is a fun new lightweight large diameter disc for
all sports. The Makani was designed with versatility in mind.
Whether you want to play a casual game of catch on the beach, a
pick-up game of Ultimate in the park, or even a round of disc golf,
the Makani is ready to fly for you.
Diameter: 24.1 cm
Makani Sport disc 140 GRAMS

So, what is it? If you know what a Te Moko is, it is *incredibly* similiar in mold, without the ridges on top that the Te Moko has. Unlike the Te Moko, the Makani light weight, so it is more suited for playing catch with a person or possibly a dog. Sometimes I see players playing catch before rounds to warm up. The few I weighed were right at 144 grams.

Why the Makani? 

When I approached Innova about being the title sponsor for this event, I requested a player pack item that was a bit unusual. Something other than the typical golf disc, or shirt.

Lots of pictures can be found here:

Registration is here:

Am Player Pack disc choices are:

Flat Top Pro KC Roc
Champion Metal Flack Destroyer
Champ MF Firebird
Champ MF Sidewinder
Star Firebird - some with nice swirls
Star Roc3 - some with nice swirls

Available for purchase or $5 upcharge over normal entry:
Champ Glow Eagle, Leopard3, or Destroyer
Color Champ Glow Destroyer, Leopard3, Boss

It may be easier to read if there was a space / paragraph break in between months.

Adding a cool item this year.  In addition to CTPs, win card, etc., there will be these Hot Round minis.

They are not for sale. The only way you can get one is at a Maverick DG tournament and have a hot round for your division. Not win your card, but the hot round for the whole division, Pro or Am. They will be available only for divisions that meet the 4-player PDGA minimum. If for some reason round 1 and round 2 are set up different (different course, different pin locations, etc.) then it will be the hot score for the first found only. I expect to give away 6-10 per tournament for the most of 2016. 

Quite a bit of variety from Zing Mini Discs.

Some sort of hocus pocus going on there.

Since I have never been part of a Performance Flight tournament can you answer some stupid questions I have. How many rounds will be played.
Will there be one round friday, saturday, and sunday.  Will these rounds be flighted by how well you did against your par. What courses will be used
for these rounds, any idea yet. Thanks in advance for answering these questions nicely and not treating me like I'm stupid.

Joe - no idea about # of rounds, but Performance Flight is basically a handicapping system.  Here's a couple of links to how it works:

Not positive, but I think at one time it may have been 3 and was changed to 4 maybe last year?  Not sure.  Falls under that TD discretion that a division could be opened for 3 if the TD chooses to do so.

Is the minimum of 4 per division correct?

Thank you for your question.  I find going by the PDGA rules to be the easiest to clarrify situations.  It takes the monkey off the back of the TD so to speak.

J.) A Tournament Director may, by giving adequate public notice, restrict the divisions offered. Absent such notice, the Tournament Director shall offer for competition any division which has four or more players that are eligible and wishing to compete. Tournament Directors may offer divisions with less than four players at their discretion

For men and women divisions, the least common denominator will always be available, even if one. 

For instance - if there is only one male Pro player, then Open will be available.  In order to have a Master Pro, Grandmaster Pro, etc., 4 or more will need to be playing in order to open it. 

For women, the same applies.  If there is only one female Pro player, then Women Open is the division that is available.  In order to create a Female Master Pro division, 4 or more will need to be playing in that division in order to open it.

For Pro divisions, it is much more 'by the book' as the players are playing for cash.  If you want to play for cash, you kind of need to play with the big dogs so to speak and not be protected outside of the rules.

For Ams, the basic rules apply.  As the TD discretion allows, I may and do occassionaly allow a division to be available if less than 4 players are in it.  In a few circumstances, I have allowed an amateur division with only one female, or one junior.  I once opened up a Male Legend division for a 74 year old, because as the TD I thought it was the best thing to do.  These choices were made to encourage those divisions to grow.

Let me know if you need me to clarrify further or a specific situation.  I'll do the best I can.
