Define "super short" 

It's on my birthday and I might try to get my wife to come along too.  We're both beginners and I'm sure I can probably get the distance (if not the accuracy) but she's still working on distance.

Think about Swope. Cut the holes in half and add 9 more holes.

Another feature is that there are multiple baskets on many holes.  So you may have a pyramid of 3 or more baskets to throw at on one hole.

We've never played Swope.  When I said beginners, I meant it.  The only two courses we've played so far are the short Lenexa DGC at Sar Ko Par and Kanza Park down in Ottawa.

If either of us even hit a single basket during the Ace Race, we'd consider it a huge win for us.  But if she doesn't have the distance to even bother throwing, it's not much fun for her.

Thanks for the quick answers!

How beginner friendly is this event? 

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

Very beginner friendly.  Especially with the new discs that they are giving out.  Should be easy for beginners.

It is also a very laid back tournament.  Mostly about having fun.  It was the first tournament I ever played.  It was also the first disc I ever owned.

The BoD is getting plans together regarding what the KCFDC is doing for this event. Details to follow. Spread the word. This is always a good time and yes, great for all skill levels, ages, genders, etc.

The Discraft Ace Race is just a few days away.  This is going to be a bigger and badder Ace Race than we have seen in the past.  We will have prizes, a raffle for a Discraft Chainstar and many other prizes, Drinks, DJ Twiggy will be on site to provide us some music. 

Players packs have been ordered but your pre registration will still secure your spot.  Whether you are going or not, help us spread the word about this event and lets get to the 300 mark!!

Mitch, I haven't played the Ace Race here, but I took my son to play the one in Lawrence last month. I was told that one was set fairly long relative to most Ace Races, and a lot of the holes were uphill, making the distance even more challenging.  As a result, there were really only 3 holes out of the 18 (6 throws total since we played the course twice) where he had enough distance to actually reach the basket.  That was a disappointment, but the truth is he still had a great time. He got one metal hit and was stoked about it.  Plus he got to take home two discs and a bunch of other goodies. 

I've been told the Swope Ace Race is set short enough that "anyone" has a realistic chance to get some hits.  I'm taking him in the hopes that it's true.  Hope we'll see you all there!

If you have a basket that we can use for the Ace Race, you can bring it to DDKC or if you bring on the day of the event, I will need to have by 8am so i can get out on the course.  If you have a basket we can use for the event, please send me a PM, so I can get a count.

Thanks for the help in advance

I suggest putting your name on the bag, your basket and stand so everything goes back the way it came if bringing baskets.

Are there still player packs available? Found out I will be in town and was thinking about playing! Either way I may still play, but just curious if they are still available! Thanks!
