Don't get me started on our group. Everything from a stalker to a midget. Oh the good times.
Calm down, this is just for fun.

Before I forget. Thank you to whoever found my camera after it fell out of the case between regular tees 2 and 4. If you looked at any pics and repeat what you saw, I'm in trouble. LMAO!

Great job running close to 300 people around a single dg course. Keep up the good work down there and I will keep coming back for more. Now I just need to decide if I will practice with my buzzz or my roc to get ready for next month  8)

So - what are people's thoughts about the discs themselves?

Much to my chagrin because it put "who are you KIDding Mills" ahead of me, I'll testify that he did get an ace during the second round.

I think that at Check it was stated that you have to turn in the card with accurate information so that they knew that you:
A.  Paid to be in the side pot
B.  Could confirm that you got the ace

I am uncertain that I would be accepting information from the internet be it valid sources or not.  If you didn't turn in an accurate card or ensure that your card was accurate when it was turned in....well that is YOUR fault, not the fault of the TD.  Now in the case of missing scorecards, or having them lost, I can see that information being corrected, but everyone posting in here, I know that xyz got an ace shouldn't constitute having accurate information.

I don't know, to me though having to play around the 20 some really deterred me from the event, and I doubt that I go back out at it again.  I have fun with it, and enjoy almost everything about it, but this should be about a couple of hours, and anything in my mind over 8-10 people is really too much.  Scores take too long, everything takes longer....

That is why I talked my little group into skipping around the big group. 

Don't get me wrong though I think that the large group dynamics did make for some exciting listening, I just didn't want to take 4 hours to throw 40 times yesterday as I did....I thought that I would get in and out in about an hour each round....

I know it is just me, but this is probably why I won't go back next year, just too much gang golf for my own liking....again I think that 8-10 is ok, but that is pushing it, however you can get through the course pretty quickly still, once you get over that, it takes way too much time.  By the time we passed the "gang" we had finished 3 holes before they got completed to the next hole, and that was following another group as well in front of us....

I appreciate all the work that goes into it, and I think that Scott did a GREAT job, as well as Josh and all the work but for me, just a little too much to try to get some fun golf in for an event

I have never been to an Ace Race before.  I thought it would be much quicker than it was, especially since it was only one throw per person, per hole.  I thought I could show up at 9, and get two rounds in by noon.  I guess everyone had the same idea that I did. 

Check in, large groups, and general confusion as to the layout were big slow downs I think.  All in all a fun event though. 

The disc was a bit more stable than I normally throw, so it took some getting used to.  I managed to hit metal once, but with the slow down between holes, it was hard to get any sort of consistency.  I left after one round, because I had another commitment.  I didn't think it would take almost 3 hours to check in and play one round.  I'll plan accordingly next year and get there early!
There are only 10 kinds of people in this world; those who understand binary and those who don't.

My challenge for people to wear the oldest date disc golf shirt was put in rather last second but someone was wearing a 1990 Wide Open shirt. Trumped my 1995 Worlds Biggest. Sorry, no prize.
No matter what the whiners say Scott. This was not a normal tournament and was treated as such. Thanks for letting us have some real fun. If Todd, Otto and Deb were to have been there, the group would have been bigger and 3 times the fun we were already having.

I often take notes and like here people comments and concerns as it helps me with future events.  I agree that even from a non player for the Ace Race, I did not like seeing such big group.  Do people like the idea that I require a limit of no more than 8 per card?

Mark Mills, I did overlook your Ace, so yours counts.  Several of the others that I have been told about after the fact where not marked to indicate an Ace so and Ace was not awarded.  If they are not parked, there is no way for me to know if there is an Ace, especially since our format can easily get 3 or more points without getting an Ace.

Trying not to be a negative nancy one of the things that I was thinking of that might be a good way to make this happen would be to possibly have groups of 10 or more weight and be staggered together so that they are all is one big group and then start in the other group on like the back nine because the large groups are fun to listen to and I didn't mean to come off as a complete jerk
