2014 Discraft Ace Race - Sept 14th at Swope Park
« on: August 05, 2014, 12:57:37 PM »
The Discraft Ace Race will once again happen in Kansas City at Swope Park on September 14th, 2014.  You will play two rounds of this Ace Race friendly course and it is a flex start from 9 until 4 (your second round has to be started no later than 4pm).  The cost is $25 (optional $5 Ace Pool) and you get two prototype discs and some swag from the picture below.  There will be some other side games taking place, including a chance to win a Discraft Chainstar.

More Information to come.  You can register at Dynamic Discs Kansas or Disc Golf World

The Discraft Ace Race is one month away and we want to break the 300 mark this year.  Last year we had the largest ace race in the country and this year we want to set a record.  This year the KCFDC is going to step it up and we are going to make this event even bigger, more fun and more prizes.  Help us out by pre registering so you dont miss out and we can make sure we order enough players packs for all to play.

What's the group allowable limit? Not asking about alcohol.

I am going to ask to keep groups to no more than 6.

There is no online registration as of now.  You can call 913-403-0710 and we can process over the phone if needed.

Scott, I've got a metal Costco basket you can use for the race. I just don't know if I can play...

In case anyone is wondering, it has been reinforced by welding the seams, and it has a second set of chains added to make it catch like a chainstar.

Who else has baskets?

I have to order the players packs for the Ace Race by Sept 2nd.  I will order extra but the only way to guarantee your spot and package is to pre register.  Pre registration also helps us figure out how many package we need to order.

How beginner friendly is this event? 

Is it basically just take one shot then move on to the next hole?

Yes, one shot. If you hit metal or an ace, you get points. No putting, no approaches. Really fun.

And holes will be set super short.
