The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

I'm playing in the Washington Cherry festival Disc Golf Tournament in Washington IL.

Its supposed to be nice out tomorrow.

I want to make sure I"m not ill prepared. Any recommendations on what I may be overlooking as far as bringing stuff with me or anything?

socks, snacks, water, towels, and music and headphones if it helps. also, chair and umbrella are not must haves but are benifical.
Do not over eat between rounds. Did that once. Not too fun to back up to a tree when you don't have paper. Besides that just have fun. Treat it like a normal round. Talk to the other players and don't get all worked up. Again have fun and good luck!!!

Don't do anything stupid. Play your game and throw what you know. tournaments are not a time to try new shots.
Think camping. Chairs, cooler and food (buy extra food) Get there early so you can just chill and set things up. I found I was more relaxed when I got there a few hours early. I also didn't have to rush out to get lunch, since I had everthing there. My only flub was that I was the first to keep score. I filled in the score card for holes 1 through 9. Problem was. We started on hole12!!
If you know the TD very well. Ask him or her to put you in with a mellow group. I didn't ask the TD, but she new I was a little nervous. So she set me up with some really cool people. Also, once you finish the first hole your nerves will dissapate and then you start to enjoy the day.

Good Luck!!!
Thanks a lot everybody, You have given me some valuable information.
Are you going to play the GPO next weekend?
No, I'm not as of yet a PDGA member so I'm not allowed to play. I will be there to watch though.
bring your short game
I'll be bringing that for sure. My putting percentages are through the roof this week. I don't know how I'll react to the tournament though.
Relax. Focus on having fun no matter what you shoot. Accept suggestions graciously. Bring the stuff everyone else suggested.
my number one tip would be to make sure you eat a healthy breakfast, Im not a breakfast person but I play and feel way better by mid round if I make myself eat somthing, like a big muffen and a bannanna.
This advise might be to late, but I found this to be good for the nerves. I never look at my score until the very end of the round. It's a little head game that worked for me. I found I didn't push myself thinking "oh I'm two strokes back" It kept me loose not knowing were I stood.
