Additional info just posted:
Twelve more days until HISTORY!! Just some more info for you. First, the course has twenty-four new pin placements. We have tried to play as many originals as we can, but this is a dawn of a new era -- A NEW FRONTIER if you will. So be prepared for a new challenge, I myself do not know the exact layout, but there have been several Flying Bison working on it, so I trust it will be satisfactory. Also, for those who don't know, all the asphalt tees we're replaced with concrete tees, fyi.
Second, the player's party will be held at Centenniel Lanes. Eight Dollars all you can bowl from 8:30 - 11:30p, and we will have Lomato's pizza delivered. Cost will depend on how many people are in, but I'd think it be safe to say $7 or less per person. This party is intended for disc golfers, family members, sponsors, and anyone else who wants to come. We will likely have a mini basket set up, with prizes to be given away all night. It will be the party of all parties. Please no outside food or drinks!
Finally, we as a club will be adding $2,500 to the Open purse
. I will reserve 50 spots for Open Players, and 70 spots for ams. That means if the Open division fills, there will be a minimum of $50 per person added. I expect registration to fill quickly. If you want a player's pack sign up early. There are only 90 player's packages, you've been warned so no fussing if you miss out. If you want to be guarenteed to play, sign up early!!
REGISTRATION WILL CLOSE AT 9PM ON FRIDAY. Please make note, NO SATURDAY REGISTRATION!!!
