Can you give a few more details about the tournament?
Cost? How many rounds? Divisions? Is it going to be different than a normal tournament?
It sounds fun, but I am sure it will sound a whole lot more fun if I know what is going on :)

2 rounds...one disc..one throw..if you don't hit basket or ace..u pick up and move the next hole.  Scoring is a points based.  3 points for aces and 1 point for metal.  All holes will be within 180 to 250 feet.   Entry fee will be $25 with a big boy ace fund (prob $10) but not mandatory.

more info can be found at www.discgolfacerace.com

These items should be covered in the next EC meeting.  I just asked about them as well.  Also if there was going to be an Olathe open or Big O this year as well.  We still haven't seen the K-7 Corridor Clash yet either.....or the new pad travels (SM and CD).

Looking for volunteers to run some events as well....so if interested PM me.

Can anyone play? I dont think I have a great chance to win but I would like to compete. Its worth the cash for me to meet some people and get a little competition play.

I am assuming we are required to throw prototype Discraft discs that are offered in a players pack like what was stated on the site.
Definition of metal would be basket on up. Correct?
The players pack looks sweet.
Looks like grand prize is a bag and 10 premiums or a similarity thereof.

So why not Down Under?

Are any of these tournaments PDGA sanctioned? I haven't seen anything on their tournament board. I am just asking because I am wanting to make sure I get my money's worth for Joining up this year. So far I have only played in 1 PDGA tourney.

 I would be nice to have a few tournaments in October or even Nov. I don't mind playing in some cold weather. I am willing to help out with getting something rolling.

Anthony, remember that Worlds took priority over everything this year in KC.  There have been several tournaments within 3 hours drive--Columbia, Emporia, Topeka, Miami OK,  Lamoni, Des Moines--so it's really YOUR fault, you bagger.
Ace?  I'll take a freakin' BIRDIE!

All the trees in the middle of the fairways will block the ace runs dude.

After running several of these, I've learned... The shorter the holes are, the better.  If they are too long, you won't have any aces.  It's more exciting when mulitple aces are hit.

yes emarsh...this tourney IS DESIGNED to bring out many of the rec players that normally wouldn't play in a tourney due to various factors...EVERYONE IS WELCOME!  Jrs., Srs, Pros, Ams, whoever.  The length of the holes are mandated by Discraft and WILL be between 180 adn 250..probably closer to the 180 to 220.  Eric K and i will be planning a config that will GIVE EVERYONE AN EQUAL opportunity to bang da chains!

Glover...yes must use the Discraft proto discs included in the players packs.  Down under would be good for some of the holes but as keizer stated..some like # 1 are just to tree filled.  AND SWOPE IS SUCH A GOOD VENUE FOR tourney's like this.
