A-Tier St Louis Open May 20-21 2006
« on: May 12, 2006, 05:50:43 AM »
Here's the info. All courses now have Tee-Pads. We are not playing the hardest configs, we went for the most enjoyable. Ace-runs at each!

All players will play Sioux Passage, Endicott, Jefferson Barracks and Creve Coeur in the same course layout for all divisions. All of these courses are of championship caliper. The pin placements on the courses now are the ones we will be playing for the event. This will allow players ample time to practice. We chose to not put everything in the long pins but go with a mix of short and long for all skill levels.

We have Fat Tire beer provided by New Belgium for those of age, and dinner provided by Sysco and prepared by Gary Suarez which will be served on Saturday night at Endicott around 6:30pm. We will be giving away a minimum of 5 baskets at the event. For the Pros we have $1,000 added to the purse.

The entry fees:

All Pro Divisions $60
All Advance Am Divisions $50
All Intermediate Am Div $40
All Recreation Divisions $35
All Junior <16 Divisions $35

(note, there must be at least 3 players in a division)

There are actually two tournaments; An “A Tier” PDGA (Professional Disc Golf Association) and a “B Tier” Pro event going on the same weekend. Both are called the St. Louis Open. In order to play in an “A tier” amateur event you must be a current PDGA member. This annual fee for amateur players is $40 in addition to your entry fee. As a PDGA member you receive a quarterly magazine, a rule book and a PDGA number. You can join the PDGA when you register for the event. Since it’s a “B Tier” for Pros, you will need to pay an extra $5 if you not a PDGA member.

All players must register no later than 8:00pm Friday May 19th at Endicott. By register we mean sign up and pay. You can register online via our website and pay via paypal, you can get the registration form off the website and complete and mail with a check to the River City Flyers 15947 Silent Creek Ct, Chesterfield, MO 63017 by May 10th. Or you can pay an officer at any RCF leagues. We ask is you are planning to play, please register as soon as possible so we know how much food to prepare. There will be no registration on Saturday.

Overview of the 2006 St. Louis Open:

Register and pick up you players package for amateur players between (noon and 8:00pm) at Endicott Park on May 19th. If you have already paid and can’t make the registration May 19th by 8:00pm, please call Mike Fritz at 314-283-4015 to confirm you are coming. You can pick up your players package on Saturday night.

Finally finished the last teepad at Sioux yesterday. Workers blanketed each course for final fixes and clean-ups. Its nice having 220+ members this early in the year. The value of the Am players pack is GREATER than the entry fee. An Elite Avenger, 20th Ann Aviar and a Tourney stampped Wizard, what next? Throw in a tourney T-shirt and free beer at the players party Saturday night. Jamie, Roger Reyes wants to play Master, I told him you'd appreciate the donation.
