Wall Doxey Rumble in the Jungle Sept. 13th & 14th
June 26, 2014 08:24PM
The Wall Doxey Fall Tournament is less that 3 months away. I like to get out ahead of the curve. Here are the particulars:

OVERVIEW

Name of Event: 2014 Wall Doxey Rumble in the Jungle Disc Golf Tournament

Dates of Competition: Saturday September 13th & Sunday September 14th, 2014

Course Locations: Wall Doxey State Park 7 miles south of Holly Springs, MS

Tournament Director: Gary Wagoner, 1558 West Churchill Downs, Germantown, TN 38138 Phone: 901-756-0690 (evenings), 901-488-3121 (cell). Email: gary@anfa.com

Qualifiers: Southern National Pro, Am & Doubles Championships

Mosquitoes, ticks and chiggers: Wall Doxey State Park is a primitive area and mosquitoes are an aggravation and ticks are particularly bad. Everyone should bring insect repellant and apply it liberally to all exposed areas, belt lines, shoes and socks. You will be glad you did. Watch out for local perils such as copper heads and yellow jackets.

Park Regulations: Wall Doxey is a Mississippi State Park in a wet county. Discrete consumption of alcoholic beverages is allowed. Smoking is not permitted in any of the park buildings. Visit the park web site for other rules and regulations.

Park Entry Fee: The $3/player reserves the disc golf course for the exclusive use of the tournament participants. It does not cover the standard park access fee of $3/car load. If you are staying in a cabin or campsite the park entry fee is included in your accommodation cost.

Sunday Doubles: There is a traditional doubles flip-up tournament Sunday afternoon. This event is not sanctioned nor a part of the formal tournament. Tee time and entry fee are dependent upon the whims of the assembled throng. Casual play will be allowed during this event since it is after the formal tournament.

Waiver of Liability: Everyone participating in the event must sign the waiver promising not to sue the TD, Gary Wagoner, or the Park no matter what calamity may befall them. Saturday evening the waiver will be checked against player registration. Anyone playing who had not signed the waiver will be disqualified. Believer it!

ACCOMMODATIONS

Lodging: The Park has various options for lodging:

Primitive camping (no water or electricity) $13/site
RV Camping (water and electricity) $18/site. Two tents are allowed per site.
There will be no bunkhouses available because a church group has reserved the group camp. The Park Manager will try to set a few bunkhouses aside for the tournament but we won't know if they are available until just before the event.

Cabins - They range from $75 to $85/nite plus tax. Call the park for rates and availability.

Motels - There are a number of Motels in the Holly Springs area. Google them for rates and room availability.

TOURNAMENT INFORMATION

Final Six Skins minimum of $25/skin
Laid out around front of park
Lowest score of any pro division is eligible
Score will not count for the tournament order of finish

Ace Pots: There will be one $3 ace pot for each of the 2 pools ($3 total to enter, no Juniors or Novices). Participation is optional. The money will be divided evenly amongst the number of aces in each pool. If there are no aces there will be a throw-off after the awards ceremony.

Cash / Prizes: Pros will receive trophies and cash; Ams* will receive players packs, merchandize and trophies.
* Defined as anyone not playing in a pro division.

Payout Calculations: the payouts will be computed based on a set percentage of any finishing place to its predecessor. Second place will be a lesser percentage of first place, but all other percentages of subsequent places will remain constant per division. The allocation of sponsorship money will be weighted in accordance with the magnitude of the entry fees; that is, the higher the entry fee the greater the amount of sponsorship money.

Payout for all pro divisions will be 34%*
Payout for all am advanced divisions will be 41%*
Payout for all other am divisions will be 50%*
* The stated percentage is a threshold amount which must be satisfied in the payout. For example, if there were 12 players in a pro division then 5 places would be paid because 4 places would only compute to 33%.

Safari Six Skins: Immediately after the last scorecard is turned in the Safari Six Skins event will begin. The field will be the six players who have the six lowest scores in any pro division. If, for example, there is a 7 way tie for 6th place the TD reserves the right to pare down the field to preserve a reasonable duration for this event.

Awards Ceremony: The Awards Ceremony will be held at or about the canteen at the old swimming area immediately after the Safari Six Skins event.

What you see immediately preceding this post is the design for the tournament disc. Thanks to my pal Bill McCarty for putting the graphic on the Forum because I really don't know how to do this.

The design is the thunder bird logo for the Boy Scout Camp Reservation near Hardy, Arkansas. I'm working on several projects with the Chickasaw Council and I asked them if they had any anniversaries this year and, as luck would have it, this year marks the 50th year that they moved the camp from the original site in Cherokee Village, AR. They were kind enough to let me feature their design on this year's tournament disc and plaques. I was on the camp staff for four of the funnest summers of my life so paying tribute to the camp has a special meaning for me. I think the design is way cool anyway.

The discs will be a full color Discraft Buzz. The first 50 ams to register will get one in their players pack. Each $100 sponsor will get one and the Chickasaw Council will get 10. Of course I will keep one and if there are any left over they will be for sale a some place other than Wall Doxey State Park property.
