4 aces in 8 weeks!

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.



First Maverick DG tournament in 2016. 

Registration opens 1/1/16 at 12 Noon.

Two rounds of 18 holes at Kanza Park.  Long and Short Tees will be utilized. Rec Men, Rec Women, Intermediate Women, all Juniors and Advanced Senior Grandmaster will use short tees.

PDGA Sanctioned C/B-Tier Tournament. PDGA Membership is not required, but a $10 fee will apply for non-members. PDGA membership / fee does not apply to Junior divisions.

$47 - Open
$42 - Pro Women, Master, Grandmaster
$32 - All Advanced Divisions
$27 - All Intermediate Divisions
$21 - All Recreational Divisions
$17 - Junior 1 & 3, Boys and Girls

In the registration process, if there is not a division open that you would like to see open, let me know, and I'll open it.  However, if a minimum of 4 participants are not in the division, there is a 90% likelihood it will be condensed down to the next appropriate division.

$5 - Dynamic Discs Ace / CTP fund:
Instead of a cash payout, a DD Ranger Bag will be given for the Ace Fund. If no ace is hit, a CTP will be done after second round to determine winner. If more than 1 ace, then only those players will do CTP.  When 41 players opt for Fund, a second bag will be given.

More information will be provided later regarding player pack, any modified layouts, etc.  As we did last year, the tee boxes will be expanded to allow players to use the small triangle concrete markers, or the grass to the side.

Player Pack for all Ams. Disc selections will be announced later after Innova order confirmation.

There will be a CTP or Win your Card, Win a Prize. Prize item yet to be determined.

Most every division will be offered in the registration process. There will be some not offered initially due to history of registrants. If you are in that camp, you may contact us and let us know you are interested in said division and it will be added. As we get closer to the event, if the division has not received enough people, you will be asked whether or not you want to go to another division that you qualify for or if you want a refund.

That is a good answer and is exactly what I do as a TD for the tournaments I run.  Thanks.

It is awesome...from my perspective. I'm helping others ask the right questions.

How does someone sign up for a division that is not offered in the registration process?

There used to be 2 very 'meh' 9 hole courses at Clinton Lake State Park Lawrence KS.  They were pulled due to baskets being stolen.  A new 11-hole course with defined fairways that combine the best of the previous 2 has been reinstalled.  The flow is a lot different and I was very glad to see it put back.  It is a ton better.  I would recommend giving it a try this winter.  it does cost to get into Kansas State Parks.

When I was looking for glow information last night, and before the news letter came out, I totally read this to mean that WW glow stopped at the end of November. 

So is it still going?  All year?
