PostPosted: Tue Jul 23, 2013 9:49 am    Post subject: Kanata Ace Race: Saturday, September 28th, 2013 Reply with quote



Date: Saturday, September 28th, 2013 *Please note the change in date
REGISTRATION CLOSED
Sign-in/Practice: 8:30 - 9:50 AM
Player's Meeting: 10:00 AM
Tee Off: 10:15 AM
Where: Kanata DGC
Format: 2 Rounds of 24 Holes (2 shots at each basket)
Cost: $35 CAD (Higher prices due to shipping)
Payment: Interac to kenmlittle@gmail.com -OR- contact me via PM to setup in hand or mailed payments

Side Games:

Rock, Paper, Scissors Tournament ($5 entry)
There will be a return of the infamous RPS tournament for a few very sweet discs.

CTP Contest ($1/shot)
Much like last year we will also have a CTP contest, with a slight variation to keep things interesting till the last throw.

All proceeds from the tournament will be donated to the Ottawa Food Bank

Welcome to the 2013 Discraft Ace Race at Kanata! This will be a fun filled tournament where the only thing that counts are Aces and Metal off the tee. Don't worry, if you've never hit an Ace before this is still a great event to attend and holes will be within range of most all players at ~90-180 feet!

For the first time Ace Racers, a little blurb from the manufacturer:

What is Ace Race? It's a fun event that helps disc golf grow by introducing thousands of new players to the joys of the sport! Each participant gets a huge player pack of cool stuff, then everyone plays two rounds of disc golf, but instead of keeping score the only goal is to throw aces (also known as a hole-in-one)! Holes are shortened, and everyone is throwing the same disc: a brand new Discraft prototype disc that is easy to throw and developed just for the event. It's a blast!

*Any donations of plastic or merch that can be made would be much appreciated. All proceeds received from side games go directly to the Ottawa Food Bank donation.

Wow.
Titanium plastic discs - I find that plastic makes you feel like an adult.
Titanium mini - anyone know if these are the heavier type? I like the solid weight mini
2 reusable score card/bag tags - what a great idea! Very cool.
2 "pint" glasses - nice
A cozy - to go with my pint
And more stickers. One of them is Buzzz.

I'm in for a players pack. I'll need to confirm attendance closer to the date.

That is correct. There are no other available weekends that line up for myself or the club in September. We do have flexibility to change but I don't think it will affect attendance outside of 5-6 folks in Ottawa. If I have substantial feedback today on the board or at TOSS, I will consider the second weekend in October.

What type of marker would you use? Dry erase? Wet erase?

Dry erase would work but would smudge easily.

I was told upon purchase that a pen or pencil could be use and wiped away with ease.

I should really attempt to try sometime, I'll see if I can dig it up and bring it tonight.

I found I write too hard for the TIDE style scorecards. I have seen slightly sturdier ones before that were less impressionable. Lesson learned: Don't use sharp pencils.

I'm assuming you'd want payment earlier rather than later?

Same price for PP only?

You can use Interac or PayPal (both use: kenmlittle@gmail.com) Same price as giving cash/cheque in-hand.

Nevermind, I'm a bit slow on the draw here. Yes Player's Pack Only is the same price as Player's Pack + Playing. So why not just play?? I plan on making this event as fast as possible this year, which hopefully can help bring in folks who are working on Plaid setup.

I'll play if I can but yes it will depend on what is going on with the Plaid on that day.

I'll send you paypal $ today sometime.
