Hey y'all, I wanted to update you on the events in Fairbanks this year, the schedule spreadsheet has some missing and incorrect info. If someone could fill in/correct it on there, that would be great. All three of our tournaments are C-Tier events this year. The Solstice Showdown is June 28, with two rounds at Birch Hill and run by Bobb Lockwood. The Mosquito Blood Drive is July 26-27 at Birch Hill, TD'd by myself. We will be unveiling a new back 9 layout at this event, and it is a fundraising event for the Alaska Chapter of the American Red Cross. The final PDGA event is the Fairbanks Open on August 30-31. This will be at Birch Hill and the last-year-new UAF course. I think Dale Feldberg is the only person from Anchorage and other places that has played it so far, he will agree it is a pretty sweet course. So mark your calendars and I look forward to seeing everyone this season!

Thanks Josh. We will update the tourney schedule to reflect the necessary changes. I will most likely be able to make it up for the Solstice Showdown. I'm definitely eager to play Birch again.

Awesome, thanks Jeremy. And thank you in advance for seriously driving to Fairbanks for a one day tournament.

I love Birch Hill Josh, it's been one of my faves since first playing it. Inventory at work has kept me from attending the August tourney the past couple years, so I'm stoked to get back up there. I will be sure to remember my dryer sheets : )

I've given up on the dryer sheets, bug dope is the way to go. Last year they weren't that bad, it was a really late break-up. This year though, there's already quite a few mosquitos around, so we shall see how it is in July!

I was able to amend the spreadsheet this morning to reflect the changes Josh. Let me know if there are any additional alterations that need to be made.

Josh, I glanced at the event page for each of the three tournaments here on DG scene, and one event (Mosquito) shows that it is not sanctioned, while the other two indicate C-tier sanctioning for ams but unsanctioned for pros.

Thanks for updating the spreadsheet Jeremy. I'm not sure who made the DG scene announcements, but they didn't have the correct information. It was all correct on the spreadsheet I had been keeping, which I had sent to Brian while a back. All three are already sanctioned with the PDGA, I don't know why they haven't posted them yet, and I can't call them from Wales.

I've updated the DG scene pages for the Fairbanks tournaments.
