Tournaments / Maverick Disc Golf 2017 Series Driven by INNOVA
« on: December 17, 2016, 04:07:51 PM »
ADDED FREE STATE FLING at Bloomington Park, Clinton Lake, KS.

Super excited to announce a more cohesive tournament set-up for 2017. Besides normal player packs, trophies, and payouts for each individual tournament, there will also be year-end bonus payout and prizes worth $1800!

A total of $570 merchandise credit will be given away based on accumulated points for finishes at Series events. The merchandise credit will be available to both Pro and Amateur divisions and will be redeemed at INNOVA’S Pro shop ( ). The points structure will be similar to the PDGA NT Event points and listed below.

Additionally, there will be six large ticket items that will include an INNOVA DISCatcher Pro 28, the new mid-grade INNOVA basket (not yet released), an INNOVA DISCatcher Sport and a Traveler or Skillshot. There will also be two bags given, a ProtoBag (not yet released) and a HeroPack. These items will be rewarded at the end of the season via a drawing. Each tournament you play in, regardless of division, will get you one entry. The more tournaments you play, the more entries you will have.

In total, this amounts to over $1800 worth of product given by INNOVA directly to you for participating (and excelling in case of the point finishes) in tournaments that are a part of the Maverick DG Series Driven by INNOVA.


Points are awarded based on place for each division. If you play in more than one division throughout the year, your points will be added up by division and the division where you accumulated the most points will be the division available for payout. So if you mostly play Intermediate, but occasionally play Advanced Master, you retain all of your points for both divisions but are placed in the division you played in the most – Intermediate. There are no Pro or Am points, just points, as payout for all divisions is merchandise credit at the Innova Pro Shop. If you DNF – Do Not Finish a tournament, no points will be rewarded.

This was based on approximately $1 per person for select events in 2016 that at the time would carry over to the Series in 2017. Slight adjustments have already been made as to what tournaments were selected to be in the Series and what wasn’t.

Most divisions will have their own payout structure. For some divisions that have historically lower turnout, multiple divisions will be combined for the additional payout. For example, Pro Women and all Pro Divisions outside of Open are in one BONUS payout division. Each are rewarded their own points, (First place in their own division gets 100 points, Second place gets 95, etc.) however all players for those divisions will be combined and the top point winner will get the First Place payout, second point winner will get the Second Place payout, etc. This would also apply to all Groupings as described below.

Each tournament you play, regardless of division, gets you one entry into the year-end drawing. Simple as that. Plan on picking up the large ticket items in Lawrence, KS. A case by case compromise can be made on alternate plans for delivery for those that cannot pick up in Lawrence, KS. We can work that out when the time comes.  If you live in the Kansas City metro, I work in Overland Park and we can work out a way to get the item to you.

I homebrewed my own beer for 25 years from 1990 - 2015.  I've finally decided to give it up.  I have a ton of stuff for sale, primarily centered around brewing 10-12 gallon batches.  If you are interested, I have it listed on Lawrence Brewers' Guild facebook page.

Bag Tags / Re: 2017 bag tags

I am going to give every other tag to each store so they have pretty much a fair sampling of #'s to give out. One store will not have 10 better than the other basically. Also, not the last championship # due to the amount of people who picked up during the meeting who were not there. So we are now giving away 160+.

Perfect. Thanks.

Double checking - if we did not play in club championships, we can pay our 2017 fees at either store and receive the 2017 bag tag starting below the last championship number (approximately figuring the tags are split between stores)?

The decision to increase to 90 will be made on Thanksgiving day.  This will only be 2 days before the tournament so the weather forecast should be *somewhat* accurate.  Hopefully.

If the weather is bad (sub 40 and raining) we'll leave it at 73 to keep things moving along faster.  If the weather is good (50+ and sunny) we'll increase to 90 to let more people play.  Something in-between?  I'm not sure.  We'll see.

Those that are on the paid wait list will get bumped in first.  If you do pay to be on wait list and don't get in, you'll get a full refund less than $1.50 that discgolfscene keeps for their handling fees.

12 days out, only 11 spots left.

Thanks to the generosity of Grip Equipment, our presenting sponsor, I was able to secure a player pack item for all players, Pro and Am which is this Impact Discs Hooker disc retrieving tool:

For all players of legal age, there will be free beer after the second round provided by Yankee Tank Brewing.

All amateurs will receive an Innova disc, choices are listed above.

Plus, Win Your Card, Win a Prize for Second Round and CTPs.


16 days out, tournament is half full.


Two rounds of 18 holes at Centennial Park in Lawrence, KS.  Grip Equipment is the presenting sponsor providing bags for the Ace Fund.  The revenue generated from this ace fund is being used to pay for a portable restroom, park fees and an added item that all (Pro and Am) will receive.  Please consider participating in the Ace Fund.

INNOVA Champion Discs is the disc sponsor. 

Yankee Tank Brewing is providing Qty 3, 1/6 Barrels of beer for free to players of legal drinking age after the second round is completed. 

Non-PDGA fee for those that are not current - $10
DAY OF Registration fee - $3.  (This is waived if you pre-register)

Registration is open and the tournament is already 40% full.  Because day of registration is becoming problematic, a $3 Day Of fee is being implemented for the purpose to encourage people to pre-register online prior to the closing of registration which is usually 5:30 - 6pm the night before.


Innova Discs that were ordered:

Player Pack Discs:
Champion Wraith
Champion Roc3
Black Champion Thunderbird
Champion Metal Flake Ape
Champion Metal Flake Colossus
Champion Metal Flake Leopard
Champion Metal Flake Teedevil
Champion Metal Flake Teebird
Shimmer Star Rhyno

Other discs available for purchase:
Champion Glow Destroyer (stiffer, not gummy this time)
Champion Glow Gazelle
Champion Glow Roc3
Champion Glow Valkyrie
Champion Colored Glow Gator
Champion Colored Glow Tern
Champion colored Glow Whale

There will be a Win Your Card, Win a Prize for the second round.  Undecided what it is yet, but probably something like a Sportsack or similar value.

Thank you for everyone that came out and enjoyed the wonderful day and this crazy big disc golf course.  The park was in fantastically wonderful shape.  I heard a lot of compliments on how well it looked.

2 spots left for big course. Plenty of room on short course for juniors and novice.

Getting a nice pre-registration list going.

For big course, we cap at 90 - have 52 so far.  Last year I had 20+ walk ups the morning off and the weather was noticeably less appealing than this year.

For short course, we have 2 so far.  Plenty of room for Novice (men or women) and Juniors 15 & under.  Short course is cheap - $10 plus you still get a DX Skeeter.

Guesstimate... How long will it take to play?

Yeah, I would say 4-4.5 hours.  I'm going to play it Friday at 10am because I want to and to get a feel for how's it going to go.  I don't intend to play Saturday.

Where might those pin placements be?  Long in the woods on 4 and right on 11?

Correct.  4 is about 75'? longer down the slope towards the creek inside the woods.

11 is more straight instead of hook left when it gets to the clearing at the bottom of the hill.  It's also kind of in the woods just barely over a little burm.
