do we have to use their crap to participate???

 Sorry, I mean disc to participate?

 Basically my question is: do I have to give Discraft 25$ to participate in this event?
if you had a sponsor would you come out, demonstrate a few of your infinite disc skills and pass along the crap you don't want to some new player?

 Sorry, I loathe the idea of giving D-Craft a penny of my scratch...

 I would like to play in it, use my own disc, even if I know I can't win/cash/place...

 Maybe donate a cool disc of 2 as some kinda prize for being able to participate?

If I have a buddy who wants to show up that day and play, how will the players pack work for him?

Anyone have an answer for my legit question?

He would receive the standard players pack that everyone gets.  He would have to use the disc provided.  Everyone plays with the same discs in the same format.

I am still looking for baskets if anyone has any i can borrow on the Ace Race.  I have a few already and I know a few are bring them on Sunday.  Please let me know if you have a basket I can borrow. 

If you have already told me have one but I have not responded to you, i apologize but can you re-let me know so i can account for it.

We are getting registration daily and well over 100 players registered.  Pre-Registration will secure your package but also secure you get a decent package.  I will pre-package the players package upon arrival.  I will package the weights that I get based on what I can about you and if you want to exchange you can do so on the day of the event.  Those who do not pre-register, will more than likely still be able to play but will get their picks from what is remaining.

I have no idea what weights and colors I will receive until Saturday, but if you want to request something specific for your pre registered package, please send me a PM, email or text and I will do my best (no guarantees)

Thanks again

There are currently 145 players pre registered for this years Discraft Ace Race.

Fun Fact .. last year we had 65 pre registered prior to the event and finished with nearly 200 players.  With 145 already pre registered, i am anxious to see how many players we finish with this year. 

Still another full day to get signed up.  If you are already signed up, please spread the word.  Share this post and lets get to that number 1 spot.

I challenge everyone to wear their oldest disc golf shirt they own with a date on it. Such as a Worlds Biggest as example.

We'll first let me start by thanking ALL 273 players who showed up for todays Discraft Kansas City Ace Race.  That's right. i said 273!!!

I just made it home and will have the winner and Side Ace amounts posted tomorrow and they can be picked up from DDKC on Tuesday or whenever is good for you.  First, I need to sleep :)

Today would not have been possible if it had not been for the help of so many people

I am sure I am missing someone and I want to thank them too...

If we do not have the largest Ace Race in the country, we definitely will scare them to know we are knocking on their door.

Thanks again for all of the support I receive from the Kansas City Disc Golf Community and I am already taking notes and looking forward to hosting it again in 2014!!

Thanks Scott and to all the people who helped with this event. This was my first ace race and I had a blast. Only had one ace, no biggie, always next year.
Calm down, this is just for fun.
