Why would we want to burden our players with the extra costs of pDGA sanctioning?

Last year proved that we draw more players as a non-pDGA event. We drew more in 2012 as non-pDGA than in 2011 when we were pDGA sanctioned. So it is an easy call to avoid the significant added costs and headaches of sanctioning with the overpriced and overrated pDGA.

And don't even think about playing slowly, roadracer. That's your first warning and that is extended to all BR masters and Casey Cox. Learn how to play by the rules which include playing your shot within 30 seconds after arriving at your disc. Disc golf isn't chess nor is it like playing with dynamite where rushing would be unwise. If you can't focus enough to shoot within 30 seconds, you should give up disc golf.

Thanks for asking though LoL

We are pleased to announce NO Team is hosting a special warmup tournament for the PoG on Sunday, March 3!

Details of the special Sunday tournament are found on the SN Schedule page at:

[www.sndg.org]


It's a good chance to practice the PoG courses in their 2013 tournament layouts. And it's a rare treat to play any tournaments at Lafreniere Park, so take advantage of this opportunity while you can.

For those of you interested in becoming a T-shirt sponsor for the 2013 Pot Of Gold, the deadline is Sunday March 3.

We'll need your artwork in by then.

We'll take hole sponsorships anytime, but the sooner the better! The earlier you sponsor, the better your tee sign. If you wait until Saturday like some people did last year your sign might be crayon or sharpie on the back of a flyer taped to a trash can LOL :) :)

Signups are rolling in, we'll post the list when we get to about 50 or so signed up.

NO Team would like to thank our latest t-shirt sponsor, Parlay's!

Parlay's has been a favorite Lakeview neighborhood bar for over 25 years and continues the party generation after generation. Parlay's has the longest bar in Orleans parish, measuring at 60 feet in length.

At 850 Harrison Avenue, Parlay's is just around the corner from the disc golf course at City Park, and I highly recommend it! They have a pretty good website (for a bar)...check it out:

[parlaysbar.net]


Thanks Parlay's!

NO Team would like to thank our latest t-shirt sponsor, Cafe Navarre!

Cafe Navarre is at 800 Navarre Street between the disc golf course and Canal Blvd right past Delgado. It's a great place for breakfast, brunch, or lunch and they open at 7 AM every day...it would be awesome if a few disc golfers could eat breakfast there the morning of the Pot of Gold, to show some support! We think if enough disc golfers show up for breakfast they'll pitch in to sponsor one of the yearly tee signs at City Park...so give us a hand and enjoy a really good breakfast at the same time! It's like 8 blocks from Hole 7, not out of the way at all. If out-of-towners need directions, send me a PM.

In addition to their fine food, inside you'll find Pot of Gold discs hanging on the walls next to Jeff St. Romain's skateboard art pieces. Cafe Navarre is a big supporter of City Park and all its disc golfers! Thanks Cafe Navarre!


Check out their affordable and delicious menu here:
