The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

Yesterday, at Heistand Park in Madison, WI, I got my first ace on Hole 14, the beautiful downhiller that overlooks the city. From the am tees (about 250 ft), it was a bit into the wind so I threw a 171 g Star Sidewinder with a bit of hyzer so that it helixed perfectly and slammed the chainz and stayed in the basket! Unbelievable! Had two friends in my group and two people were walking up to the pad, so I had 4 witnesses.


Now for my question: What is the proper etiquette after an ace? Do you write your name and date on the sign or the basket or just your disc, and do you have to do it right after the ace occurs? Also, is it cocky to carry a permanent marker with you, almost expecting an ace?

Sign basket and or tee sign, also sign disc with witness initials. If I witness I give the ace'r $5 cash.. but thats a MI thing.
No!!! Do not sign anything but your Disc!!!

Encouraging people to sign baskets and signs, Gabe, is encouraging people to vandalize...unless YOU own the property....That is not cool!!!

5,1 is not a MI thing either.....It's commonly known throughout the U.S...each group has their own variation...but it's definitely not a MI thing
If you play in PDGA Sanctioned tourneys you should carry a permanent marker with you all the time. PDGA rules require a unique mark on the discs in your bag. So, say if you buy a new disc the morning of the tourney, then that disc needs to be marked...albeit, you can mark your disc with a pencil or a pen...but permanent marker works the best.

And...ditto what Jamie said about marking baskets and tee signs...most consider that to be vandalizism...

Lastly...51 is played across the country...had to cough up $5 just this past Sunday...
On the Disc Only !!!! Never on the Teesign or Basket or Teepad or Benches !!!!

Carry a permanent marker and write the info on your disc, have the witnesses sign your disc.

Writing on course equipment is graffiti do not do it!
Never sign anything at the park. Thats a Doucher move. Vandalism, and vandalizing your course, that makes no sense. Scream, yell, high five, adn then pass your disc around for your homies to sign. If they pay you, so be it, either way, its an ACE!!!
Jump up and down while singing Kumbaya.
Actually..if I Ace with a Roc...it's "You Can Still Rock in America" That's usually the song that comes to mind.
Do not sign anything on the course that is permanent and fixed!!! That is Vandalism!!! discs are ok!!
Seriously?? Vandalism??
It is very common around here, but to anyone who wrote their name at Lakeshore- expect it gone soon I'm already working on wiping it clean.
