Pre-registration: Pre-registration is strongly encouraged. Send Check or Money Order payable to the Memphis Disc Golf Club to Gary Wagoner at above address. Please print legibly and include the following information with your registration:
• Your Name
• Your Division
• Your Entry Fee
Note: even if you have pre-registered, you must check in with the TD Friday evening or Saturday morning to fill out your leader board card, sign the Waiver of Liability form and, if you wish, enter the ace pots. Please register with the name you are going to check in with which will also be the one reported to the SNDG. If you register as William Smith and check in as Longarm Bill there is a high probability of something getting screwed up.

If you have not registered with the TD, Gary Wagoner, by 8:45 a.m. you will not play. The TD will not delay the start of the player’s meeting and subsequent tee times because someone overslept, got lost, stopped for breakfast or ran out of gas.

TOURNAMENT INFORMATION

End of Registration: Registration will end at exactly 8:45 Saturday Morning. No further registrations will be accepted after the stated closing time. The next 15 minutes will be used to audit the Leader Board Cards against the computer log and stock the Leaderboards.

Player’s Meeting: The Player’s Meeting will begin at the course pavilion at Shelby Forest at exactly 9:00 a.m. Attendance is mandatory. All the specifics of the divisional pools, courses to play, alternate Tee box locations, mandos, O.B.’s and other pertinent information will be specified at that time. While the breakdown of the pools has been previously stated, the TD reserves the right to make divisional pool changes to avoid overloading a given venue. All such changes will be announced at the Player’s Meeting.

Tee Times: A horn will sound twice two minutes before Tee time and once indicating the start of play. Saturday Tee off at Shelby Forest will be at exactly 10:00 a.m. Tee off at Bid Hill and Edmund Orgill park will be exactly 15 minutes after that to give those groups time to get to their respective venues. Tee time Saturday afternoon will be exactly 2:30 p.m. for all courses.

Tee off Sunday will be exactly 9:00 a.m. for all courses. There will be no Player’s Meeting on Sunday. We will be playing the East & West courses at the Forest, and the 18 hole course at Bud Hill. No baskets will be moved between rounds. This tournament is not PDGA sanctioned but all PDGA rules will apply. There will be no 2 meter rule for discs caught in foliage.

Alternate Tees will be only at Bud Hill and only for Amateur Women. The regular Tee pads will be marked to show that the alternate Tee positions are up ahead. The affected holes will be identified at the Player’s meeting.

Ace Pots: There will be one $3 dollar ace pots for each of the 3 pools ($3 total to enter). The pot will be divided evenly among the number of aces in a particular pool. If there is only one ace for the whole pool, then that ace gets the whole pot regardless of the round in which it occurs. If there are no aces in a given pot there will be a throw-off at Bud Hill after the awards ceremony.

MDGC Special Ace Pot: The Memphis Disc Golf Club has an ongoing roll-over ace pot that will be $348 prior to any money being added for this tournament. Only MDCG members in good standing are eligible to enter and win this ace pot. The MDGC 2007 bag tag will have to be presented as proof of membership when claiming the prize. Multiple aces by qualified MDGC members will split this special ace pot. Bottom line: if you want to join the Memphis Disc Golf Club for $20 to have a shot at an ace pot that will be worth at least 20 times that amount, see one of the MDGC officers prior to signing up.

Cash / Prizes: Pros will receive plaques and cash; Ams will receive plaques and merchandize. The only exception to this is the ace pots which are cash and wholly dependant upon the amounts voluntarily contributed by the players. The payouts will be computed mathematically based on a given percentage of any finishing place to its predecessor. Second place will be a lesser percentage of first, but all other percentages of subsequent places will remain constant. The exact percentages used in the computation will be at the discretion of the TD. The value of plaques will not be considered in the computation of the individual payouts, but will be deducted when establishing the money available to a given division.

Ties: In the event of a tie for 1st, 2nd or 3rd in any division the players will turn in their card, return to Hole #1 of the course they have just finished and begin “Sudden Life” playoff. In this format the player with the highest score on a given hole is out of the tie. In case of multiple player ties, play will continue until the winner is decided. The winner will inform the person in charge of the leaderboard who will write “trophy winner” on the leaderboard card. This playoff will be to determine who gets the trophy. It will be up to the players whether they play for the money/ prizes. If they can not agree, then the money/prizes will be divided equally among them.

If the Am payouts are at least equivalent to the retail value of a basket, it is the intent of the TD to award baskets to the first place winners in Men’s Am Advanced and Men’s Am. If not, they will receive mechanize like any other am divisions.

CTP Prizes: At the sole discretion of the TD to be announced at the Player’s Meeting.

Safari Six Skins: Immediately after the last Leaderboard arrives at Bud Hill the Safari Six Skins event will commence. The six hole ad hoc course layout will be at the sole discretion of the person running this event. It will be a skins format at a minimum of $50/skin or a minimum of $300 total. The field will be the six players who have the six lowest scores and restricted to the Men’s Pro Open division. However, if a Women’s Pro Open player(s) posts a score lower than any one of the top six men, she will be eligible for one of the six places in the this event. If a hole is not won outright, the skin rolls over to the next hole. At the conclusion of the last hole any skins which have not been previously won will be divided equally among the participants.

Awards Ceremony: The Awards Ceremony will be held at Bud Hill immediately after the Safari Six Skins event. Plaques will be awarded 3 deep in each division.

Other Potential Activities: Details to be announced at the Player’s Meeting. Said events will take place immediately after the awards ceremony.
