This year I am trying to head south as often as possible to play some A & B tier events that are harder to come by in ON & QC. I'm looking mostly for events within a 4-5 hour drive of Ottawa and TO. I would love to have some of you fine folks come along to share the awesome experience, accommodation expenses, drive and fuel costs.

I'll keep this post up-to-date with events I have registered for and/or plan to attend. Please let me know if you have interest in going and hopefully we can coordinate our travels.

I am looking at Vermont. But it will depend on what weekend life prevails. I have only ever left Ottawa once for DG, but if my putting maintains its brilliance I may need to show the world. I like how you have some spring weekends as it may be warmer and drier south of the lakes than up here.



This is the first I have heard of Bath NY (5 Hours from Ottawa). I will look into this further as this would be a good start to an excellent season. Thanks for getting me thinking.

With the cessation of the OD Tour, I just might have a few extra weekends available for some disc golf travel.

Kin, for most, would you be driving up on Friday, returning Monday, kind of thing?

If I can snipe one of the sponsorship spots, yes.

I will be driving back on Sundays when applicable. Fridays will depend on the people going. If we can get down early enough to play a round or two, I'll leave early Friday. Otherwise I get off at 2:00pm every Friday.

For Surprise of the Fools I have requested a lodge that can sleep 5 comfortably or 8 with some floor sleepers. When I get confirmation I'll post it here.

I believe TO is going to book up another lodge, I think it would be too much to try to pack both into one lodge.

I went to the 1st Great Chili Cookout and have the t-shirt to prove it. Love this course. One my favourites. For most of us, in the appropriate division, can compete on this course.

I was only able to secure a cottage space, not a lodge. Thus we can only sleep 5 easily, 6-7 with some spooning. Please let me know if you are interested and I will put you down for a spot in the OP.

Alright, so the cottage is booking up quickly and we might be able to only fit 1-2 more bodies. Please let me know ASAP if you plan on attending or if you are a maybe. There are only a couple of cottages left at all on site that aren't reserved, so make your intentions known quickly. Also, the event generally fills 120 spots, so make sure you register for the tourney as well.

I think I have everyone's number and e-mail who is interested and will be sending out e-mails shortly to see what schedules are for leaving Ottawa. I am hoping to leave Friday early AM, but if everyone else can't leave until later in the day I can postpone my departure.
