Just a heads up, I Doug Trantham will be the Tournament Director for this event once again this year and look forward in doing so. We had an amazing year last year and couldn't have had a larger turnout. I will be setting up an online registration for this event ASAP to get people in! You will not want to miss out. The Ring of Fire alone was worth coming to. Don't forget the added cash that poured in from last year.

Stay tuned for something special.

News from "The 'Boro"

$200 4-Hole Skins Match for Top 4 Finishers after The Battle in the Boro!
Re: Battle in the 'Boro - Oct 6, 2012 - Jonesboro, AR
September 04, 2012 02:32PM
My apologies...

I jumped the gun on the $200 Skins Match.

Due to:
1: The number of participants we are expecting
2: The GREAT Ring of Fire after the last card is turned in
3: The fact that it will get dark much quicker on October 6

We believe we would not have enough daylight to do the Sknis match after everything was over, so the Skins Match has been scratched.

Since you are playing 22 holes, will the max number be 88?
Re: Battle in the 'Boro - Oct 6, 2012 - Jonesboro, AR
September 24, 2012 02:29PM
The tournament is gaining some major steam and from what I understand through facebook and word of mouth, we have around 71 players pre-registered so far. Last year we had 72 players registered and it was a fantastic event. If you plan to attend this years event, list your name here please!

Thanks

Doug T.

I'm not sure we'd get more than 88, but if we did, we could always re-add the two alternates we used last year that we had not intended on using this year, OR put more than 4 on a card...keeping our options open!

Added another $350 yesterday!

Circle 3 Disc Golf would like to sponsor two holes. Can we bring the $35 on the day of the event?

Also, Robby Uhrman (Open Men) & Annie Dickerson (Am Women) will be there.

This will be Annie's second event ever. She was wondering if she should play Am Women or play with the Novice division. Thoughts?

Thank you Robby!! Yes, bringing Cash day of would be fabulous!!

I think Annie will do fine with the Am women. As of now, I think for Am women we have De Snedecor, Cindy Wilson, hopefully Missie Chambers and Lisa Vogt.

Is there going to be a hard cap or should people send in a check if they're concerned about not getting in?

Can't wait :)
