REGISTRATION - PreRegistration Only Event (No Day of Registration)

Registration will be available online through Disc Golf Scene starting on January 1st 2017. Please refer to the following link to access the registration page:

Registration on DG Scene

Online registration will close on March 31st, 2017 at 3:30 P.M.

In order to guarantee your shirt size, you must register by March 1st at 11:59 pm. This is especially true for people who would like a size 3XL shirt size as I will not order more than the number of registered players who selected this option before this deadline. 2XL and small might also be limited if you do not register by this deadline.

ACE POT

The ace pot will be optional and will cost $5 per player. The ace pot will be split evenly between each ace (if one player hits more than one ace, they will get more than one share of the ace pot) occurring during the tournament. Aces that occur during the finals or any potential playoff will apply for the ace pot. If no ace is hit during the tournament, there will be an ace pot throw off upon the conclusion of the finals/playoffs. Each entrant will receive one throw and the closest to the pin will be awarded 100% of the ace pot.

SN FEE ALLOCATION

The total sum of SN fees going toward this event has yet to be determined. The number(once we have it) will be distributed proportionally with the number of players competing in each division.

PLAYERS PACK

Expect a tournament shirt (most likely to be a short sleeve t-shirt made from dri fit material) for all divisions and a premium plastic disc for all amateur players. More specific details might be added later.

Fair retail value of players pack items will be included in the payout calculation for amateur divisions. Items included in players packs for professional divisions will not be deducted from their minimum payout required, however.

TROPHIES

Each of the divisions listed in the entry fee section will have trophies awarded for 1st place. Additionally, 2nd place and 3rd place trophies will be awarded in the open pro, advanced amateur, and intermediate amateur divisions. Additional trophies may be added based on division turnout. The cost of the trophies will not be deducted from the minimum payout required in any division.

PAYOUT

Each division will receive, at minimum, a total payout that equals 110% of entry fees collected plus SN fees allocated in total. For example, if entry fees collected for a specific division equals $700 and the amount of SN fees allocated for that division equals $300, the total payout for that division will equal $1,100 (110% of $1,000).

For amateur divisions, this sum will be paid in fair retail value of disc golf or tournament related merchandise. Items included in players packs will be included. Food items and trophies will not be included in this 110%. For professional divisions, this sum will be paid fully in cash. Players pack items, food items, and trophies will not be included in this 110%.

Any additional money generated from sponsorship or wholesale-to-retail markup on merchandise will be distributed as the HDGA sees fit. This money will first be used to pay any tournament related expenses including apparel, trophies, food, fees, general expenses, etc. Secondly, this money will be included in the payout so that some divisions will be awarded over the 110% minimum. Added $ will be distributed in the pro divisions the same way the SN $ is allocated.

50% of each division (not to exceed 50% if there are an odd number of teams) will receive a post-tournament prize based on their finish.

The post-tournament prize payout will be posted before the start of the 3rd round.

FOOD

Lunch will be provided on Saturday. Grateful Soul will have lunch for sale on Sunday.

LODGING

Here are my recommended lodging options for the event:

(1) Little Black Creek Campground & Park
1 & 2 Bedroom Cabins available
Full RV & Tent site camping available
LBC Website

More lodging options to be added.

ANCILLARY EVENTS

Details regarding any potential driving contest, putting contest, players party, etc. will be added later. Any or all of these events are likely to take place in their entirety on Saturday after the completion of the 2nd round at LBC(Eagles Landing).

T-Shirt Sponsor - $150 includes logo on tournament shirt & 2 tee signs
Scorecard Sponsor - $300 cash/check or $400 in merchandise

I'm not sure of a mixed division being offered in this tournament. I know one has not been offered in the last 5 years. We don't expect at this point to open a mixed division up.

Cabin Rental Reminder: Cabins at Little Black Creek Campground & Park will begin to be booked up for April. I was told by the owner that it would be wise to book early due to high traffic they receive during that time. Currently there are 15-16 cabins available for that time ranging from 100-150 a night. There are not many hotel options within 30 minutes of the course. Cabins & Camping are your best options. Book online at:

LBC Campground & Park
