Tournaments / Re: Maverick Disc Golf Schedule 2015
« on: September 04, 2015, 09:35:15 AM »
If you never been to a Maverick DG tournament, this is what you can expect.

Modest entry fees. Personally, I would rather play 3-$30 tournaments than 2 - $45 tournaments. Or, 3 - $20 tournaments then 2 - $30 tournaments. So I price my tournaments to what I would want to play in. To be upfront, with lower entry fees come a somewhat reduced payout. However, the payouts are fair and are always greater than what the PDGA standard is.

Choice of payouts for Ams. I carry a mixed bag. I think most people do too.  So, I carry Innova, Discmania, Dynamic Discs, Latitude 64, Westside, Discraft, MVP, Legacy and even a random Gateway or Vibram occassionally. Soon I will be carrying Hyzerbomb. Priced at normal retail, not escalated tournament pricing.

Ace funds are always for product. Some like it, some don't. Just so you know. If you hit an Ace, the payout is either for a nice bag (i.e. Grip Eq, Lat64 Luxury, Hyzerbomb Flak, DD Ranger) or for a practice basket(s) such as Innova Sport, etc. Each tournament is clearly noted what the giveaway is for that tournament. If no Ace is hit, we do a modified ace run / ctp-ish type of game. Either way, the prizes are going home with someone.

About 80% of the time, there are 'Win your card, win a prize'. Personally, I love these so I add them to tournaments that I run. Usually they are the second round so the cards are more even skill level. I'm starting to experiment with a CTP per card instead. Just for fun for a different experience - mix it up.

I usually target the outlying courses that are not used a whole lot. Again, something Maverick-ish. (BTW - I live on Maverick Lane which is where I got the name Maverick DG)

I can accept cash, cards for swiping, or PayPal.

Slough Creek from Longview - 8 miles, 13 minutes south towards Perry but not all the way to Perry:

Maverick Disc Golf's first B-Tier:

This is actually two events on the same weekend, same course.

Saturday, 10/10/15 is a B-Tier.  Course will be set with various pin locations and average a 'medium' seting.

Saturday Registration:

Sunday, 10/11/15 is a C-Tier.  This will be a one rounder with every pin set long. 

Sunday Registraion:

Saturday will have $500 added cash to the PRO divisions.  MPO and FPO divisions are open even if one person registers.  In order to open up a second division, at least four players need to be in the requested division.  If less than four players are in a division at tee time, the divisions will collapse to the next closest division.

Saturday's Am Player's Pack will be one stock stamped Hyzerbomb disc, Maverick dri-fit tee shirt, nice reusable plastic pint cup, and one free drink at Hog Holler (good for one tap beer, well drink, or pop).

Player packs for all Amateurs. Advanced and Intermediate divisions will have added merchandise payouts beyond player packs. Recreational and Junior divisions are Player Pack only.

Sunday: Pro divisions will pay 100% of net entries.  Rec and Junior ams will receive a $17 voucher.  Advanced and Intermediate will have no player packs and 100% of net entries paid as merchandise credit.  (Net entry fee = Entry fee - PDGA fee which is $2 per person for C-Tiers).

Optional Saturday Meal:
For Saturday, Hog Holler is running a special of pulled pork sandwich, beans, potatoe salad and drink for $8.  Normally, just a sandwich and fries is $8.  So, the potatoe salad is substituted for fries (for quicker serving) + beans and drink for free with the special.  You can preorder your meal during registration to pay for it all at once.

Sunday meal?  Probably not due to the start time. (See Below)

Saturday check in: 8 - 8:45am.  Player meeting at 8:45.  Tee time will be set at player meeting.

Sunday check in: 9:30 -  10am.  Player meeting at 10 am.  Tee time will be set at player meeting.  While not confirmed yet, I'm presumming the kitchen will be open after the round if you want to order some food.

Camping - Longview campground closes 10/1/15.  However, Slough Creek campground, a Corp of Engineers facility will be open until 10/15/15.  Camping is $12 - $18 depending on what hook ups you need.  I did check the place out - the tent area is pretty cool and overlooks the lake.

Saturday: Instead of $ payout, a Hyzerbomb Flak Bag will be given for the Ace Fund. If no ace is hit, a CTP will be done after 2nd rnd to determine winner. If more than 1 ace, then only those players will do CTP. When 41 players opt for Fund, a 2nd bag will be given.
No ace fund for Sunday - it will all be set extra long.

The first tournament at Longview - the Longview Open - was my tournament that sold out the fastest.
While I don't want to hype it up, with the extra cash, nicer player pack, probably nicer weather, ability to camp and play a third round on Sunday, you may want to consider signing up early for this one.

I do not know who prophetrider27 is.  I did notice the post count was 2 or something like that.

It's all good.  All of us are allowed to be pissy one time per year.

For Masters, I pay USD or KCK based on who is playing in that division or if someone specifically requests one way or another.  The default is KCK unless someone like Jamie Barry or Ted Keith are playing, then I pay USD and inform others that it is USD.
