YOUR 2013 Southern Nationals Doubles Championship - July 6th & 7th - Lafayette, LA

Posted by jacques 
I'm going to do a complete update tomorrow night but there were a few things that I wanted to remind everyone of...


1. You only have 14 days left to register for the tournament. I must confess that I wish we were a little further along on this than where we are currently, which is one team away from being half full. Time to get serious, partner up and get your team registered.

2. In order to take advantage of the exceptional deal that the Holiday Inn is offering us for rooms, you must make reservations by the 21st of July, which is only five days away. They are doing rooms for $65 per night and tournament central for the entire weekend will be there. Once again, time to get serious, partner up and make your reservations.

3. Lafayette folks - we are pouring concrete @ Pa Davis on Friday, please plan to come help. We are also having work days on the next two Saturdays and in all likelihood we will do some work on Sundays too. We will be installing some more benches and tables, dressing off around tee boxes and of course trimming and mowing so make sure you are available to lend a hand.


Please pass this along via social media and word of mouth.

Any chairs? I need a chair.
Jacques,

One minor question about best shot. Are players required to tee off/throw in a certain order? Or will free style be allowed?

David Fifita
@ Brian - thanks for the kind words, will we be seeing you for this one?

@ Ian - may have a few chairs as CTPs or ROF prizes. If you win one, you've got to share it with Zinger.

@ David - no required order to tee off for any of the rounds, regardless of the format.

Registration


As of 06/18/2013 - 57 out of a possible 108 teams are registered for the tournament

Online registration is being handled by Disc Golf United. Here is a link to the tournament on DGU - get signed up!

One thing that the DGU site doesn't do very well is handle the names for doubles tournaments, so enter your name (first and last) in the "First Name" field and your partner's name (first and last) in the "Last Name" field when you sign up.



This will be open, up and running until registration closes at the end of this month, meaning you have 13 days left to register for the tournament as of today - 06/18/2013.


In-person registration and pre-payment is still available, see me or Scott Comeaux out at the parks to sign up & pay.


Registration and pre-payment by mail is still available.

Send your payment & info to

Jacques Giraud
119 Shadyside Ave
Lafayette, LA 70506

make your check payable to "Acadiana Disc Golf Association"


If you register in-person or by mail, I need your names, shirt size preferences and contact information. If you fall in to these categories and want the lodging option for your player's pack, please indicate this and I will inform you if it has or hasn't filled when your registration payment is received.

THE FIELD WILL CAP AT 216 PLAYERS.

ONLY PLAYERS WITH SN POINTS FOR THE 2012/2013 SEASON WILL BE ALLOWED TO PLAY IN THIS EVENT, NO EXCEPTIONS OR EXEMPTIONS.

THIS TOURNAMENT WILL BE 100% PRE-REGISTER AND PRE-PAY. THERE WILL BE ABSOLUTELY NO WALK UP REGISTRATIONS ACCEPTED AND NO I.O.U.s.

In order to restrict sign ups to players with SN points, the DGU site will be set up with a registration code. It is 2013SNDC. I will not post this information anywhere else but this site.

By signing up and paying for this tournament, you are verifying that you have the required SN points and are eligible for the selected division based on current SN rules. If you sign up without SN points or sign up for a division lower than one which you are eligible to play, you will be removed from the field and your entry fee will be refunded.

I ask for the players help and the SN BOD members to assist in policing ineligible players.



Only two teams that won paid admission to the tournament throughout the year are AWOL.

If anybody knows how to contact

JOHN LINTON or DICKEY MAXWELL
ANGELA IRBY or ROBIN HORNE

please let them know about needing to let me know if they are planning to attend & claim their free entry.






Rounds

Three pools on three courses - two rounds Saturday and one round Sunday - no finals, just three rounds of Disc Golf.


Pools

Pool A - ALL PRO PLAYERS

Pool B - ALL ADVANCED PLAYERS

Pool C - ALL AM PLAYERS & JUNIORS


Courses

Acadiana, Pa Davis & Heymann. Acadiana will be set in a championship layout, Pa Davis & Heymann will be set up normally.


Assignments

Pool A - 1st round at Acadiana, 2nd round at Pa Davis, 3rd round at Heymann

Pool B - 1st round at Heymann, 2nd round at Acadiana, 3rd round at Pa Davis

Pool C - 1st round at Pa Davis, 2nd round at Heymann, 3rd round at Acadiana


Format

Heymann Park - Best Shot, all divisions, all rounds.

Acadiana Park - Best Shot, all divisions, all rounds.

Pa Davis - SOMETHING NEW - Best Score played from your partner's lie.

We decided to call it Best Scorelternate since it COMBINES Best Score and Alternate Shot.

"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.

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.





Schedule

Friday, July 5th

Early bird check-in at Acadiana Park the Holiday Inn Holidome's picnic area starting at noon. Check in, collect your player's pack and play a practice round or two if you wish. Note the location change.

Lodging

45 double occupancy rooms for Saturday night at the Holiday Inn Holidome will be offered as player's packs for this event on a FIRST-COME, FIRST-SERVED basis once registration opens.

The lodging option is for YOUR TEAM, meaning this is the player's pack for YOU AND YOUR PARTNER ONLY AND SATURDAY NIGHT ONLY.

Dinner will also be served FREE OF CHARGE at the player's party Saturday night, at the same place as lunch. We are gonna fire up the pit again and grill some fish, get the big black iron pot going with a chicken, shrimp and sausage jambalaya, dish up some wings from Hooters, plate up some shrimp and corn macque choux and finish it off with some desert.

We will have water and soft drinks at dinner and two kegs of beer (must be 21).





Skills Competition

Mr. Keith Bodin will be organizing the skills contests to be held at the picnic area at the hotel during the player's party. Thanks to his hard work and generosity there will be $1,000 of cold hard cash up for grabs in putting and accuracy.

The upshot portion will come first and takes place on six stations set amongst 1-1/2 acres of a beautifully manicured and landscaped area next to the hotel.

The putting will follow on the tennis courts which are lit up in case we run out of daylight.

This will be a team event, by division and the scores will be cumulative for both events. First place team in each division wins cash equal to their entry fee for the tournament - $100 for pros, $80 for advanced & $60 for ams.

We will also have a mini basket throw off and a mini ring of fire with the winners taking home a mini basket in each event. Make sure you bring a mini with you to the player's party.





Lodging

The Holiday Inn Holidome is the host hotel for the weekend, will serve as tournament central on Saturday and will be the hub of activity.

A special thanks to Shawn Johnson, a fellow disc golfer and manager at the Holiday Inn for working with us on the accommodations for this event.

As mentioned above, a player's pack lodging option is available in limited quantity for Saturday night only.

If this isn't for you or it is full when you register or you want to stay in town Friday or Sunday night, then rooms at the host hotel are available for the unbelievably low rate of ONLY $65 PER NIGHT.

TIME IS RUNNING OUT TO GET THIS DEAL ON THE HOTEL ROOMS - BOOK YOUR STAY AS SOON AS POSSIBLE
