Lafayette LOVES CTPs.

Mini Basket Throw Off

100% free to all players!

Two throws with your mini, closest to pin takes home a brand new DisCatcher Mini basket.

Start working on your mini marksmanship.


Opposite Hand Opposite Grip Long Drive Contest

My personal favorite fun new thing to try.

It is exactly as it sounds - if you normally throw right-hand-back-hand, you're gonna throw for distance left-hand-fore-hand. It is funnier to watch than a dizzy distance competition and the discs don't go nearly as far.

Not exactly sure what the prize is going to be yet, rest assured it will be something cool.


Lunch

As usual FREE LUNCH!

Planning a good old fashioned coon @ss fish fry..
