if the season ends in may, why wait all the way to june 21st to send invites, and then wait till july 15th to open it up for everybody, that leaves us less than a month, to secure a hotel, and get off of work and make arrangements. you gotta think about your people. you need to change them dates

Season ends May 31st. It will be pure luck if we have all the event results in by June 21st. I would love to get started earlier with the dates and will if we have the results all in and posted. But I'm not gonna put a date out there that I am not for sure that we can meet. I think you will be safe renting a room now. I will give you my spot if 288 players show up before you.

You can ask off for work now because the date of the event is set.

Tupelo is a decent sized city, you won't have any issues getting a hotel secured. (also they have the group hut that will hold 200 people.

I was just curious as to why Trace Gold wasn't getting played? I love all the courses in Tupelo and can't wait for this event. Just wishing we could play my favorite!

Guys, this is how it's always been done. Tupelo plans to host one of the best SNACs. It's a privledge to be invited. It means you played more tournaments or beat more people than the next guy.

Like the TD said, go ahead secure a hotel, talk it over. I assure you the dates won't be your biggest issue.

Sponsorship to date for SNAC:
HyZer Nation
JUDGES
Grassroots Disc Golf

If you would like to be part of the sponsorship and get you name, business, or club name on the the back of a super cool dri fit shirt and your name on a sign or 2 on the courses during the snac, please contact Me, Tony Palmer, Ronnie McCoy, Michael Russell, Jason Cross, or any other TDGA member that you run across.
Dead line for sponsors to make the shirt is June 15th .. Thank you

Had a really good Doubles event this past weekend on 2 of the 4 courses we will be playing. Had 28 teams play.Only 12 weeks away from SNAC. the season closes in 18 days and then we are just right around the corner from sending out invitations.

So if the season ends may 31st and you end the season as an intermediate and you begin to play advanced and cash before the SNAC, are you forced into advanced, or can you play intermediate?

What if you finish this season in advanced, but qualify for INT before you sign up for SNAC? what would you have to play?
Re: 2013 SOUTHERN NATIONALS AM CHAMPIONSHIP!!!
May 15, 2013 10:18PM
if you cash in advanced before this season is up, then you have to play in advanced
