The 17th Annual Lafayette Spring Fling ~ Saturday April 26th ~ Acadiana Park ~ Disc Golf Tournament and Extravaganza

Posted by jacques 
Jacques; Sorry I have to miss this one, it is our annerversary, but we may see you at the festival

Good Luck

Congratulations on the anniversary and of course we are sorry you can't make it Dex. You should pick a different weekend the next time you get married. HAHAHA

How about giving us a 100% guaranteed accurate Dex weather forecast for the tournament?
The weather will be upper 70s at start and warming to 82 with a cool breeze out of the South and just enough clouds to keep it comfortable

I was not thin king of the date when we eloped to the Great state of Mississippi (Woodville) and got married 40 years ago


Both courses are looking pretty good so for. One more work day and they should be just right for some fine disc golf play. Getting very excited to compete in my favorite tournament of the year. Don't get me wrong I am a huge fan of many of the out of town tournaments, but there is nothing as sweet as playing on your home course. Especially when your home courses are in as great of shape as these two are now, and will be after this up coming Saturday's work day.
The deadline for sponsoring the 17th Annual Spring Fling has passed and I want to extend personal gratitude to the businesses and individuals who CHOSE to sponsor this tournament.

Look for a complete tournament update tomorrow!
Do we need to request shirt sizes ahead of time?
If so Christian Page and I (Dakota Page) have just registered and in need of 3X if possible.
Tournament Update and Recap


24 players registered on DGU right now. That is a lot considering that we are accepting walk-ups on Saturday and the tournament is still a week away. This tells me we are going to have a big field.

Online closes at noon on Friday and I will be emailing the pre-registered players this week to find out which shirt size they wish to reserve.

Go to Disc Golf United and get registered. You will get the size shirt you want plus you won't have to wait in what is sure to be a line Saturday morning.


First, Second and Third place in all amateur divisions takes home hardware...

First place in all pro divisions does too...

Went with store bought trophies this time and have no regrets about it at all. These look great and I would be pleased to win one myself.


Thanks to everybody who came out and helped the last two weekends, Acadiana is looking its springtime finest. Everything is mowed and trimmed, new benches are out on the holes that needed them, pads around the tee boxes are level and dressed, signs are freshly painted and it is looking GOOD.

A recap of tee assignments...

Pro Men, Pro Women, Pro Masters Men and Advanced - gold tees on Ace Run 1, 2, 7, 10, 12, 16 & 18 - gold tees on Duzee 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 11, 12, 13 & 16 - orange tees (concrete) on all other holes on both courses.

Pro Masters Women, Grandmasters, Senior Grandmasters, Advanced, Advanced Masters, Am Men, Am Women - orange tees (concrete) on all holes on both courses.

Recreational & Junior - blue tees (shorter) on Ace Run 1, 2, 10, 12, 16 & 18 - blue tees on Duzee 1, 8, 9, 14 & 16 - orange (concrete) on all other holes on both courses.

Blue and Gold tees will be clearly marked with paint and flags on Friday before the tournament.

Only change from the previous list - we had to abandon plans to cut a new pro fairway on Duzee #5 before the tournament. Everything else is done and ready so go the park and start practicing.


First place in Advanced and Am Men win baskets...

First place in Advanced Masters wins a cart...

Also have four bags for other top finishers...

And the discs of course...

Besides the usual molds in the usual plastic, we've got some unique stuff in the payout discs such as the Atlas and Nova overmolds, KC Pro Rocs and Aviars in glow plastic, metal flake Champion Roc3s and glow gummy Champion Bosses.

As always, top half of the field gets paid in Amateur divisions in Lafayette and we always pay well over 100%

CTP and Longest Putt prizes

Every hole (all 36) will have a CTP or Longest Putt prize on it.

In the mix...

6 disc + shirt + mini
6 disc + hat + mini
6 disc + ca$h + mini
18 disc + towel + mini driver + keychain
4 $25 HobbyTown USA gift cards
1 $100 Gattitown Pizza eat and play family prize pack
2 bottles of specialty rum
2 bottles of special reserve from LA31 brewing

No less than $25 value on every single hole on both courses!

Whatever is left over from CTPs goes to the ring-of-fire.

Player's Pack

First 150 players in all divisions get full color tournament shirts...

Of course, the actual ones will have the sponsor logos on the back too. They will be the best looking threads you ever got in a player's pack.


First 100 non-pro players get tournament stamped discs- 25 Bosses, Destroyers. TeeBirds & Terns - in the new GStar plastic plus tournament stamped mini-drivers.


Everybody gets free lunch between rounds...



FREE mini basket throw off, two throws per player to win a Discatcher Mini...


FREE opposite hand, opposite grip long drive contest to win some cool stuff-

A disc golf clock...

And thanks to Schilling, a real electric guitar...

Bag Tags

ADGA bag tags for 2014 will be on sale next Saturday. $10 for a tag, $20 for a tag and a cap.

A few of the CTPs will be for ADGA bag tag holders only so buy a tag and don't risk missing out.

Also, we will have an ice chest with three cases of assorted premium beer for ADGA tag holders only so buy a tag and upgrade your drink options.

Pro Divisions Payouts

Add 'em up boys and girls...


There's 2,000 reasons for players to join us next weekend in Lafayette for the 17th Annual Spring Fling.

As always, added cash gets split amongst divisions in Lafayette. We don't make a penny off this tournament so this is a guaranteed minimum amount with possibly more.

Hey Rick, are you fired up yet for the Spring Fling?

Signed up. I'll have to see the shirts to know what size. Also, earlier today, I dropped my 1999 SNC mini into a salad bowl in the far corner of my back yard from about 150 feet away. I think I'm ready for the mini throw-off.
OPEN MASTERS Gonna see any of those Benjamins?
"As always, added cash gets split amongst divisions in Lafayette." As Jacques indicated above.
Based on past experience Jacques has spread the payout across divisions fairly and evenly.
No matter what division you play, if you place in the money it could pay for one great time at the festival.
Jacques for president of the world!!!
Bernie, pro masters will get a healthy taste of added cash - fair & generous. All pro divisions get them some. At least $2k added will be shared. Minimum of top third of pro divisions plus one player gets paid in Lafayette.

Heath, I humbly reject your nomination. Thanks though.
I saw the backstop earlier today. Nice.
The Festival will present music from around the are guaranteed to hear something you never heard before from some of the world's best performers

Youtube of some of the performers:

Line up at the Festival Internationale
Playing Saturday in the 9:30-10:45pm slot:
Black Joe Lewis

Sunday's headliner is the funky will not catch them at the Jazz Fest only here!

Art Neville and George Porter Jr., are joined by New Orleans native Brian Stoltz on guitar and Russell Batiste Jr. on drums and are known officially as the funky METERS. funky METERS tap into the roots of The Meters musical heritage while taking the sound well into the future. Their trademark sound blends funk, blues, and dance grooves with a New Orleans vibe.

funky Meters
Friday doubles will be at Heymann Park. The doubles round will tee off at 5:30 pm at $5 per person. This will be a 100 % payout round of doubles. Should be great fun. Come on out and pass a good time with us.
I'm definitely going to the Meters. No Leo, though. Kind of disappointing.
Tournament update brought to you by

Our neighbors to the West, the Imperial Calcasieu Disc Golf Club.

Disc Golf in Lake Charles continues to grow and this has definitely made an impact on our tournaments here in Lafayette. Besides supporting our events with attendance, Lake Charles sent over a last minute shirt sponsorship and I want to let them know that we really appreciate it.


All of the essential details for this tournament can be easily found in this thread so I'm not going to go over them again. I just wanted to mention a few things.

Online registration closes tomorrow at noon. Got 46 players pre registered - 9 in professional divisions and 37 in amateur, novice and junior divisions. As of now, that leaves 104 shirts and 63 discs left for players packs for walk up registrations. Scroll up to the link to DGU and get signed up if you want to make sure you get your stuff plus skip what I believe will be a long line Saturday morning.

I forgot to include a question on the site for players to input their shirt size so a bulk email was sent out on Wednesday. Nearly everyone responded so I hope to get all of our pre registered players a shirt that fits them.

Discs for pre registered players are a different story, they will be first-come-first-served.

Remember the first 150 players get a tournament shirt no matter which division they play in. In addition, the first 100 non-professional division players get hot stamped GStar discs and mini drivers. I'm sticking to this because I really didn't order extra of either of these. Pre registered players already have their stuff locked down. Everybody else, get here early enough or get left out.

I was shocked when they called "The Acadiana Disc Golf Association" at the main stage of Festival Internationale this evening when they were reading off the names of the supporters and sponsors at the opening ceremonies. I spoke with somebody months ago at their office about ways that we could partner with them but the conversation didn't really go anywhere. Maybe the person I spoke with wrote our name down on the wrong list. Whatever the explanation may be, it was pretty cool and a really nice surprise.

Speaking of Festival for the players joining us from out of town who plan on sticking around Saturday night, I will try to get my hands on a pack of the printed guides that have the schedule of acts, location of food and beverage vendors and a nice map of downtown. Festival is FREE to attend and it takes place throughout the downtown area. Food is outstanding and reasonably priced. Beverage tents have a selection of beer, soda and some have mixed drinks. Parking can be tricky and I recommend one of two large grass lots on Johnston St just past the railroad track. Wherever you park, pay attention to any signs because they do tow - big time.

Tune in to TV-10 in Lafayette tomorrow (Friday) night for the 5:00 & 10:00 newscasts. We filmed a nine-hole round with KLFY's weatherman Chris Cozart for his outdoor segment that is supposed to air then and again on their AM broadcast early Saturday morning. I will post a link once it is available.

Chris promised a good forecast for the Spring Fling during the round while we were filming and he sure did deliver a beauty - temperatures starting at 63 Saturday morning with a daytime high of 84 and a 0% chance of rain.

Busy day tomorrow so your best bet is to email if you have any last minute questions or concerns.
I am so impressed with the way you guys run your tournaments. I look forward to playing Acadiana for the first time at this tourney. If it is anything like the PaDavis one I attended, I am sure to have a blast.
Does anyone have a downloadable course map? The link on DGReview is not working.
I will post a link to the Google drive that contains the course maps later this evening when I get home.

Laid out six temp holes - 3 per course - to be used if needed tomorrow. I will post about them later and of course I will go over them at the player's meeting. I will make the call on using them later on. Have 4 temp baskets for sure, Lafayette players please bring a metal practice basket tomorrow if you have one.
Tried to register online earlier today (before Noon) and it told me it was closed. Really looking forward to this tourney, guess I just have to wait in the line.
Only thing I can think of is the DGU site is part of Innova in S Carolina so that may be Eastern time. See you tomorrow morning.
Yeah I figured it was something like that because I went on around 11:30 so 12:30 Eastern Time. I plan on being there at 8:30 :)
Here is a link to a little something extra!
Remember the camera adds a few pounds. HAHAHA

Somebody requested course maps, links to the Ace Run and Duzee course maps are here courtesy of misterbogey himself.

Ruben texted me a link to the mobile phone app for Festival International - here it is. Got it for iPhone & Android.

My expectations are still for a BIG turnout. In all likelihood we WILL play the temp holes. I will revisit this again tomorrow morning but for those interested they would fit in as follows..

Ace Run - 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, A, B, C, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18. Hole A tees off near the restroom on hole 12 (campground hole) and plays toward the front gate of the campground. Hole B tees off across the driveway for the campground and plays along the big pavilion. Hole C tees off in the back of the field next to the pavilion and plays up to the campground driveway. They are relatively short with some OB.

Duzee - 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, D, 14, 15, 16, E, 17, F, 18. Hole D tees off behind the pro tees for hole 14 and plays just shy of 14's am box down the power line right-of-way. Hole E tees off on the road that you usually walk down between 16 & 17 and the basket is in the clearing by 17's pro tee. Hole F tees off next to the new bench adjacent to the tennis courts and the basket is just behind hole 18's tee box. Hole D is a straight tunnel shot, Hole E is a strong turnover shot with plenty of foliage, Hole F is open field and takes advantage of all the trees near the tennis court between 17 & 18.

Everything is ready, locked and loaded. See y'all tomorrow morning. ADGA and Flight Club players, show up with your helping shoes on - no need to ask, we will need help with something.
151 very happy disc golfers is ALWAYS a good day!!!!!

Keith "Sunshine" B.
Great tourney-again. Generous payout for the Old Fahts. Lafayette tournaments are classy.
