Any of the places, as long as someone can actually order the discs soon. For an event on the 15th (my last day in Alaska), they need to be ordered this week (preferably by tomorrow). If it is scheduled for the 1st (not sure if we can get the discs here by then) or the 15th of October, I'll buy in two players, as my brother is flying up for the drive down.

Well, I'll be there regardless of where it is. If I'll go to Fairbanks for a fundraiser tourney or Am Worlds for a Major, you gotta know that I both love the sport and am willing on supporting whatever. I just know that if we have it in Kenai or G-Wood less people will show. Sure the same group of us (who are at every tourney) will be there but this is a tourney that can help us get new faces involved with the sport (in a positive way). Not only that, the Ace Race would be a great ... more

Just a heads up. Last year's Ace Race in Kenai drew 33 players. So, I wouldn't count on 20-25 if you advertise. I'm still willing to host, or run the tournament, but due to the move and the house sale I am currently tapped financially.

Girdwood would be sweet and I agree with Steve as far as the turnout potential...it is starting to get chilly

I wouldn't say every basket at WCL is reachable from the tee with an understable putter

I love the idea of an ace race and prefer the idea of Girdwood. We can try to advertise the heck out of it, but even at Westchester you won't go above the 20-25 range. Put it at Girdwood, everyone loves to play there, expect 25.

Here are my two cents: I'm all for an Ace Race tourney. However, I believe location is key. We can have it in Kenai and have the same 15-25 people show up. We can have it at Girdwood and have the same 20-30 people show. Or we can have it at Westchester Lagoon where EVERY basket is reachable from the tee and we'd have to set a max number of participants. If we hold it at WCL and advertise right we can fill it up with absolutely no problem at all. I hear the players pack is 2 discs ... more

Do you have a date for the Ace Race. If I cant make it i'll still pay the fee, it's a sweet swag package.

Nice ratings update and wins lately folks. Joe needs to step up to open now after his win on a course he has never played before. He beat a field of competitors this weekend that have a lot of experience on this course. Also, Som is over 900! Gratz, now you need to move up to Advanced as there are no 900 rated folks in that division. I love seeing folks climb the ladder and i've seen a lot of great improvement from several people over the past two years. Keep it up and keep the spir ... more

Are you guys having an Ace Race?

Moose Pretzel this weekend, be there. If you've never been and were looking for an excuse to make the road trip...this is the time. All your friends are going to be there...all the cool ones anyway, so why not join the company and have fun.

Preregistration will be available Saturday from 8:30am to 9:30am @ Westchester Lagoon for the King of the Bowl tournament. The players package is a sweet zipup hoody. Field limited to 45 Players so come early. I will see you all this weekend. Brian

I've never participated in an "Ace Race", in fact, I've no idea of what that intails... Sounds like fun & good for your game!

Just found that there are only 7 spots left, if you've not do so, please do it soon or you'll miss the tourney.

Baskets have been moved @ Kincaid and the Goon. Make sure you check out the new looks before the King of the Bowl Tournament! Thanks for the help Sean!

Tell people to start contacting me if they're interested. No promises, but I'm looking at it.

I know myself and several others are Chris. I'd love to have another one, especially since they're using another putter this year.
