I haven't gotten to play in one of these yet, but it sounds like a lot of fun. Can you explain the format? Is it similar to an ace race? Do you putt and keep score or is it just counting aces and metal hits?

Do you have to use the 2 discs I assume? You use a roc for one round and buzzz for the other?

How it works usually is you sign up for the Roc or Buzzz team and use only Rocs or only Buzzzes depending on which team you signed up for.

You can use however many different Buzzzes or Rocs you have and I assume with the addition of the Buzzz OS, it will be allowed this year.

From there,  the scoring is just like any other tournament.

Future variant idea: Give or allow each participant to throw both a Roc & a Buzzz...THEN see which is superior for each thrower.  Whutevah.

Details next week, but, yes, players sign up for Roc or Buzzz and throw that team's discs exclusively. The one  exception being the Classic Roc; it is not allowed as it is a smaller diameter disc and is a great putter (as well as mid range). That means Rancho, Roc3, KC Pro, Flat Top, etc only for Team Roc (no classics, yo!). For Team Buzzz it's SS, FLX, D, Crystal, OS, and so on. This is not an ace race. You play out on each hole as usual but with only your team's discs; hence, R vs B. With the introduction of the Buzzz OS and the Roc3, the competition should be even tighter this year.

I've been working on the layout and it's going to be a big change for Swope; we'll start at hole nine and play safari going backwards for twenty-one holes. It is a completely new look at the gully course.

Details and registration next week.

No modified anything. Roc or Buzzz. Simple-ish.

...or, a Roc vs Buzzz Ace Race where each participant throws both on each hole to determine superiority.

I just hope you can make it this year!

I call BS on the no classic roc rule. A roc is a roc. It was ok last year. Quit listening to the Buzz whiners.
