I just realized something, I will be driving back from Detroit on the 22nd overnight. What time does this event start? I am going to try my hardest to make it, but if not I still want a players pack!
Where'd my disc go?

If you register you will get a players package regardless if you can play or not.  We will be doing a flex start throughout the day 9-6 so as long as you get in 36 holes, you can play or if you cant make it, you can enjoy your players package :)

Oh too easy...I know I will be back by 9am, if I am driving. It's a 13.5 hour drive from KCMO to Detroit, so if I leave by 6pm I should be good. 36 holes at swope won't be too bad, should only take 3 hours most.

And everything is set up really short so less throws and less distance to walk.  It wont take long to play 36 holes.  If it is a crowded course, you might wait longer on the groups in front of you.

One of the things I have gotten real good at is yelling "FORE!" Haha Ok, thanks for clarifying that for me. Can't wait for this event!

Just a note on Swope etiquette.
We yell "threeeeee!!!!!" because most players there can't count to fo(u)r(e).
Just sayin.

I like it when I hear "Heads Up!" I just shake my head...or when you yell fore and people turn around to look...hit the ground or get low HAH  :o

If you play late enough sirbronco, I might be able to join your card. I should be home by 7-8am on the 23rd, might need a few hours of rest then I will come out. What time do you plan on playing??

I know the name is "Ace Race", so 1 throw at each basket?  So as a newbie, should I come out at anytime, throw at 36 baskets and watch some awesome players? Are adult beverages allowed? And do I need to belong to any clubs?
From the flyer it sounded fun and I would like to watch a tournament and some good players.
Who ever said it was easy ,never met me.

The format will be very casual.  Flex start between 9-6.  Each player must play 36 holes using the discs from the Ace Race and have as much fun as possible.  Pretty simple :)
