How many Southern Nationals Ladies are planning on attending the United States Women's Disc Golf Championships? I know there are several signed up but I thought it would be good to start a thread over here in case anyone was looking to share a ride or just see what each other was up to. It's Sept 19-21 in Huntsville, AL so I'm thinking we should have a good representation of SN Women.
Here is the information regarding the practice schedule and Redstone access.
URGENT MESSAGE! - If you are bringing a non playing guest(s) with you to the event, that needs access to the Redstone Arsenal (Rounds 3&4) email TD, Chris Jaskolka immediately @ firstname.lastname@example.org
Access to Redstone Arsenal is restricted, it is an active military base. TD must escort all players on base for practice rounds. Photo ID for everyone in vehicle, proof of registration & insurance required. Your vehicle will be searched - no firearms, knives, or other illegal items allowed.
WEDNESDAY - 3:00 PM
THURSDAY - 8:00 AM
THURSDAY - 1:00 PM
THURSDAY - 4:00 PM
Meet TD at these times at Brahan Springs to convoy on base.
Be on time!
If arriving before Wednesday, contact Chris for practice arrangements.
Karen, I know this may sound like a silly question but I grew up military and I know how they can be. We will have Sam with us and he is all of 8 months old. What sort of identification do I need for him?
Chris did. It seems as Jeff was posting here I was e-mailing Chris. No ID is required for children 16 or under. Too bad. I was having fun making Sam a fake ID. Do you think they would have believed he was a Doctor?
The tournament will be held at UAH, Redstone, Hartselle, and Brahan Springs. All of them are mainly flat. UAH and Redstone require a lot of walking. Brahan is the shortest one. Sorry, I don't know the lengths of each.
Went out to UAH (the long one) today, and played a round with Lizz Carr. Which means....it has begun! I am soooooo excited. Especially since all of ya'll will be on my home turf! Everyone drive safe, and I can't wait to see ya'll!!!
Oh, and if you get in by Wednesday evening...We have ladies league at 5:30 at Brahan Springs (3rd course ever built, and oldest course still being played). The amateur ladies play this course in the tourney, but not any other divisions! Hope some of ya'll can make it!
My phone number is 256-694-4639, call me if ya'll need anything, and I mean anything!
Good luck to all of you. Looks like JTP and I will NOT be making it. I hadn't planned on playing (not a PDGA member) but was going to follow the pros around and "learn something". If any of you see a player from Michigan named Erin Oakley (Valkhere) or Becky Brakel (Tree) from Illinois give them a hug for me!!!!
