Players Packs

I am drop-dead stunned that the merchandise packs are going faster than the hotel rooms.

There are limited quantities of each - 130 merchandise packs and 45 lodging - whichever fills first will be gone and everybody else that signs up after that will receive the other one.

So far, 38 teams have opted for merchandise and 9 have opted for lodging. That means 27 more teams can choose merchandise before it sells out and 36 more teams can choose lodging before it sells out.

Speaking of selling out, 2XL shirts are all gone so you can now choose between MED, LG & XL.

The moral of the story in both instances is - SIGN UP SOONER RATHER THAN LATER AND GET WHAT YOU WANT.


Let's review the format since it seems to be a contentious issue almost every year...

Acadiana and Heymann will both be played in the Best Shot format by all divisions. Best shot is of course the "normal" doubles format that most players are used to. Please feel free to ask questions about playing Best Shot if you have any.

Pa Davis will be played in a format new to the SNDC (to my knowledge anyway) - a combination of Best Score and Alternate Shot.

We decided to call it Best Scorelternate .

"Say what?".

It is simple and best explained with an example using a three shot sequence.

You and your partner both drive.
You throw your upshot from his drive's lie and he throws from yours.
You then putt from his upshot's lie and he putts from yours.
He misses the putt and you make it.
Your team cards a 3 for the shot sequence of your drive - his upshot - your putt.

In this example, both partners do not have to hole out once it becomes impossible for a better score to be carded.

Another way to think of it is "Best Score played from your partner's lie"

Also, if you park it under the basket and your partner hits a tree 20 ft off the tee and goes OB, you may abandon the shot sequence starting with his drive and play the hole out as a "normal" alternate shot starting with your drive - basically your drive and his tap in putt for a score of 2 (assuming he sinks the putt).

We'll go over it again at the players meeting and it will be explained in writing - either on the back of the score card or in the tournament booklet that each player will receive.

Again, feel free to ask any questions that you may have about this format.

Minor Change of Venue

Early bird check in will be held Friday afternoon at the picnic area at the host hotel, the Holiday Inn Holidome on Evangeline Thruway.

We will be over there setting up tournament central for Saturday morning and welcoming our guests to town. Originally this had been announced to take place at Acadiana Park.

The awards ceremony will also definitely be held there following the conclusion of play on Sunday.

That means tournament central for the entire weekend (both days) will be the Holiday Inn.

Besides being a really nice place and offering really great rates, the convenience and comfort of having an air conditioned hotel room, your own restroom and all your luggage right next to tournament central is a luxury that should sell itself so please favor the Holiday Inn with your business.
As far as out of towers go, like me and jay-Vo. I think that the idea of tourney central being at the hotel is friggen awesome. Sounds like a tourney to remember. I will definitely have my go pro to film all the side games , sounds like a good time with some good people. July 6th HURRY UP!

Hey Keith , Did you find my disc ?

Please contact me at the club's email acadianadiscgolfassociation [at] if your are interested in learning more about the sponsorship opportunities for this tournament.

The last day to get on the shirts is Tuesday, June 25th. That is exactly two weeks from today!


I am going to continue pounding my chest about getting players to register until the tournament is full.

I am also going to start including information about what the different divisions are going to be playing for in the upcoming tournament updates to keep the folks who are already signed up excited about this event.

As part of their payout, the first place winners in Advanced Masters will each receive one of these...

really nice three-wheel carts from Do-All Outdoors.
Ok... where can I purchase one of these carts?
my doubles partner played in the Dogwood a couple months ago. Does that qualify for points to play this event?
I found the cart on amazon: []
@rhyno - search "do all gun buggy". That is actually a sporting clays gun cart. The brackets on the handle are supposed to hold the gun's stock and the padded pockets at the bottom are for the muzzle. The compartments in the center are for holding boxes of clay targets and the other pockets are for shells. My neighbor's grandson is a competition shooter and I saw him unloading one from his vehicle and thought it would make a helluva disc golf cart. Not to mention, they are MUCH less expensive than jogging strollers.

@Delta Tomahawker - this year's Dogwood definitely satisfies his required points. Y'all get signed up!
Hey guys, I'm looking for a partner to play either AM's or Advanced at the champs. Let me know if you're looking for someone.

My brother won a spot in the tourney and I really would like to at least play it. Hit me up!
If you miss this tournament you are missing a big thing!

Food for the players party is going to be OFF THE HOOK!!!

I am hearing roomers of 2 smoke hogs, an ice chest of different kinds of fish going to the grill, pastalaya, and 2 kegs of beer just for the players party.

Saturday breakfast I am working on getting my company to buy boudin.

Saturday lunch I hear is going to be grill stuff....chicken, burgers, hotdogs.......ect..

This is all part of your entry fee.

The food alone is worth the price of admission!!!

Please stay at the Holidaydome! Everythig is taking place there and they have done so much for YOUR 2013 SNDC

Tournament update brought to you by Hooters

With locations all throughout SN land, Hooters restaurants is a proud sponsor of YOUR 2013 SNDC. They will be sending over 600 wings for you to enjoy at the player's party on Saturday night!

Many thanks to Pat Fisher in NOLA and the staff of the Hooters in Lafayette for hooking us up with this delicious sponsorship and for being perpetual supporters of Disc Golf tournaments far and wide.




Don't be a loligagger - get yourself signed up to play today!

49 teams are signed up with room for 59 more.

Go to Disc Golf United to see who your competition is going to be AND hey, while you're there you might as well sign your team up too.

Player's Party

Keith started things off this evening by mentioning the food.

So look out teeth, look out gums, look out stomach, here it comes!

The festivities on Saturday night will kick off after the second round wraps up.

The soft drinks will be icy cold and thanks to Johnathan, the beer will too, and I know that will hit the spot after a hot day out on the courses.

Hooters is sending over 600 wings. We're going to have fish on the grill, and a few big black iron pots full of jambalaya. Plus two pigs will be going on the grill on Friday for some pulled pork awesomeness.

For desert, I'm thinking a hot July night calls for some ice cream.

David Roberts, one of your fellow disc golfers, will be putting aside his bag for this weekend and will be busy preparing the food and I feel he and his cooking crew will deserve a big round of applause.

Besides eating and drinking your fill, you will have a chance to win some cash in the skills competition. They will be run by division and will consist of accuracy and putting stations laid out on the hotel's picnic area which is actually more like a small park.

Thanks to Keith's hard work and generosity and the generosity of players who participated in one of the travelling 50/50 raffles that we held at tournaments last season, $1,000 in cash will be on the line Saturday night.

The skills contest will be a team event (you and your doubles partner) and winners in each division will win the amount of their entry fee in cash, so pro division winners get $100, advanced winners get $80 and am & junior winners get $60. It is part of the players party so of course it doesn't cost a thing and you could win your entry fee back with a few upshots and a few putts. That's the best deal out there ladies and gentlemen.

Also, I've got two mini baskets from Innova for a mini basket throw off and a mini ring of fire on Saturday night. The winners of each of these will win the mini baskets so besides your putter and midranges, make sure to bring your best mini with you to the players party!


We started it off last night with the carts for the Advanced Masters so now let's talk baskets...

As part of their payout, each member of the first place teams in ADVANCED MEN AND AM MEN will win Discatcher Sport practice baskets.
