Buccaneer Tournaments

Does anyone know when the next tourney at Buccaneer will be?
There are usually two a year, one in the Summer and one in the Winter. One of those two were replaced with a doubles tourney.
There are none posted at sndg.org. Can you post them or just relay the dates they will be held.
Thanks,
Z

Hopefully no time soon. Not be overly critical, but the skeeters will carry you away from that place.

Oh its not that bad. Especially in the earlier part of the year. And the course is definately good enough to put up with a few bites! I sure do hope the Buc doubles takes place. It was a blast last year! Will how about it????? Do you think it might happen sometime soon????

I spoke with the Park Manager at Bucanneer. He said that there are no definite dates set yet, but they are trying to set one in May. He was waiting to talk to a local TD to do the tourney. The only other one is the one always scheduled the 1st weekend of December. So if there is a local TD wanting to do the tourney. You might want to contact him on the first of the month.

Of course I'd be more than willing to run the events at the Bug-in-ear.
Looking at the list of SN tourny's, the best day for it would be the 23rd of May, but that conflicts withthe Alabama States. (Is the Ala States a SN qualifier this year?)

Does the doubles format suit us, or should we make this a singles tourny again?

If they do want two tournys each year they need to let me know what month they want it, and the same goes for Gautier, there are none on the scedule that I am aware of.

My e-mail adress is skysouthwest@msn.com or just keep posting here on the forum.

Later,

OK, trouble with that date maybe. There will be a SN / PDGA B tier event in Huntsville that weekend that will be really fun. (4 courses) Check the other thread on this information.

Maybe April 26th? The only thing I see on that date is the Wall Doxy Open, which is a two day event, and a good ways away, but two tourny's in the same state on the same weekend? But I still think it would work.

Bye Again,

Once and hopefully for all. THE ALABAMA STATE EVENT ON THE SCHEDULE CAN BE REMOVED!! The state is going to be in Huntsville LATER THIS YEAR. Matt Ambrose and the Huntsville crew are handling it and I have no idea if it will be SNDG, PDGA or whatever. So please, remove this event from the schedule. RwC
Re: Buccaneer Tournaments
February 26, 2003 10:54PM
Even with the Ala States gone, there is still the Huntsville tourny that same weekend that will be a SN and PDGA B-tier that should get a big tournout even from as far away as here. But thank you for the info on removing the states from that date, much obliged.

Peace,

Thanks, Will. Shoot, I forgot about the Rocket City Blast! Please ignore my other post. Didn't think anyone would see this that quick. Appreciate your work. RwC

Will I think April 26th would be a good date, (if o.k.'d by the park manager) because I don't think a tourney on the coast would affect the Wall Doxey turnout at all. That's a long ways away! Also what about maybe having it March 22nd. The only thing scheduled for then is a Gainseville tournament for AM's. And I don't think we'll keep anyone from going all the way over there. I really hope the powers that be decide to make it a doubles. Last year was the first one at the Buc and the tournout was really good. I know it would be even better this year if we would advertise a little ahead of time. So please get with Mr. Jim and make a decision so we can "talk it up" on the forum page. Anyways you have got all of H'burg's vote for doubles! Also Steve and I will be there early, if you need a hand with anything just let us know. We would be glad to do anything needed in order to get this thing to take place. Later

I was at Buccaneer this past weekend, it looks like someone has been doing quite a bit of work, the course looks better than I have seen it in a while. There even is a new bench on one of the holes. So even though I don't know who has been doing all of this work I definitly appreciate it, it made the outing much more enjoyable.

My wife and I got the chance to play Bucaneer and Gautier this weekend and we both agree on one thing about Bucaneer, ANY tournament there aughta have the slogan "sink a putt and donate blood." The mosquitos were BAD!!!

Fun courses though.

So what was the final outcome of the tournament decision at Buccaneer?
Shane I met you yesterday at PRC, great course, great meeting you. It's hard coming from Slidell to play, but I play Buccaneer a few times a week and it'd be great to play in a tourney out there.

Thanks Rick for the compliment. I would like to see something at the buc if it can happen soon. The deer flies are unbelievable later in the year. Rick if you can let me know via email, I can get the disc you need or just click on the link at the top.

Hey. Last time I talked to Jim O, he asked if I could put together this tourny here, and from looking at the calender, the last weekend in April is still the best date.

So, as it looks now (I need the OK from the Park)
APRIL 26th Buccaneer Doubles is back!!!!!

If the parkmanager needs any information from me, he may e-mail me at skysouthwest@msn.com, or get in touch with Jim Orum.

I do plan on having it be a one day, two round affair, with the first round being the normal best shot, and the second one being the now infamous 666 golf!

We'll start a new thread, and create a flier for it as soon as it is 100% approved.

Peace,
Willy BT

Thanks for the info, but I gotta ask. Being new to Tournament style disc golf, what is 666 golf? Hey Shane, what are the conditions at PRC like today? My friends and I were thinking about heading up there for about 3:30, but if the conditions are poo, we'll stick to Buccaneer. Thanks all!

Rick,
666 golf is hell!
Holes 1-6 are best shot, 7-12 are alternating shot( you drive, your partner ups ), 13-18 are worst shot( worst shot picked by the other team in your group ). The 666 format is a blast, it evens the playing field. Choose your partner wisely. ;-)

As for the weather here, its great. warm, sunny, a bit windy(its always windy at the Wildcat Trace).
I'm not in Poplarville, but just up the road in H-Burg.
GO PLAY!

Thanks for the info! 666 golf sounds like a blast; hope to see everyone at a tourney at buccaneer! Hopefully I'll be getting some new discs in the next few days, then it's to the courses to test them out and learn them. I'm sure I'll be in Poplarville this weekend, at least one day, and I'll definitely be out playing today, it's just a bit of a haul for me; i live in Slidell and work in New Orleans, so my hellish 45 minute drive home becomes an hour and a half after picking up my friends to go play. Thanks again for the info!

Tell Dave that he and I are partners for BUGaneer doubles. It's meant to be.
