2008 Discraft One Disc Ace Race
When: Saturday, October 25th - 11 AM
Where: Jericho Lake - Aurora, IL
How much: $25
What do I get?: 2 brand new prototype Discraft discs, a Discraft hat, mini, sticker and pencil
What's the format?
2 rounds of 18 holes. Every hole is shortened to be anywhere from maybe as low as 125 feet to hopefully no more than 200 feet. You get TWO SHOTS per hole using the discs that were provided, and all you're doing is making an ace run. You don't hole out, just go on to the next hole. After the two rounds are completed, you'll have made 4 attemps at an ace on every basket. Hopefully we'll hear lots of CHING!!
What do I win?
The person with the most aces (with most metal as a tiebreaker, and then a ctp as a second tiebreaker) will win a prize pack containing $300 worth of Discraft merchandise. Last year's winner won a discraft bag and towel along with 14 Elite-Z or ESP discs. Cool!
How do I sign up?
Pre-registration will open up on the evening of October 7th at www.paperorplasticsports.com. BONUS: Pre-register by 11:59pm Friday, October 10th, and you'll ALSO receive one of the 2007 Ace Race discs - the now PDGA-approved IMPACT. You can also register in person the morning of the event. Registration will be open from about 9:30 until 10:30.
Isn't there another tournament that day?
Yes, the Fox Valley Metro Disc Golf Club is running a day/night tournament also at Jericho Lake. That event will begin at 2:00, so you can come out in the morning and stay all day and play in two very different, but very fun events! Entry fees for both events ARE separate, and you do not have to play in both if you do not wish.
What time will this event wrap up?
The event should take about 2 to 2 1/2 hours to complete. It moves pretty quick since each person on the card is only taking two shots and that's it.
Who can play?
Anybody can play! PDGA membership not required! Bring your spouse, your kids, your friends, everybody can enjoy this event!
Trash talking and much cheering for every ace is highly encouraged!
