Elvis Fling with the King 2011

Veterans Park - Tupelo, Mississippi
Saturday & Sunday, June 4-5, 2011
58 Holes over two rounds!

Yes, you read that right. Only two rounds will be played this year. However, each round will be a grueling 29 holes that will give all players new and exciting challenges! Word to the wise ..... hydrate, eat a nice breakfast, and expect a four hour round! Water/Shades stations will be available on appropriate holes and some snacks will be available to keep ya going!

In year\'s past we have fought the \"Running with the King\" 5K race that runs through the course and limits incoming automobile traffic from about 8am til 8:45am. We also would like locals and out-of-towners to have some extra time to participate and enjoy the Elvis Festival in downtown Tupelo. In past years, we\'ve stuffed in so much disc golf it left little time for anyone interested in partying with Elvis!

Saturday: Saturday\'s round will begin with the player\'s meeting at 9:45 with an estimated initial round start of 10:15-10:30. All cards will be divisional (as best we can manage) and all divisions will tee from the Am pads, All baskets will be in their \"B\" positions with the exception of six holes that will be in their \"A\" location. There will be a total of 29 holes played with some holes slightly lengthened and two temps holes thrown in to keep things interesting and to challenge all players with some \"new looks\"! Basket #9 will be in the \"King position\" both rounds so everyone has two chances at this rarely played hole.

Sunday: There will be no need to gather for Sunday\'s round. Just show up at your designated hole and be ready to tee off at 9:30am. Sunday\'s round will be similar to Saturday\'s except Advance and Pro divisions will play from the Pro pads and the six baskets original in their A positions will be moved to the long positions.

Awards have been ordered for the following divisions:
Men\'s Pro
Women\'s Pro
Men\'s Grand Master (3+ to make)
Men\'s Advance Master (3+ to make)
Men\'s Advance
Men\'s Am
Women\'s Am
Junior

The tournament will be SNDG sanctioned, but not PDGA this year.
This is one of SN\'s first events for their calendar year, so we hope many of you are moving up a division!
