Congrats on a very well run Ace Race Kevin! Had a great time...

Chris Dalton    August 23, 2013 at 9:43pm

Anyone backing out !? Ill buy your package!

Warren Ace Race still has a few packages left.

Kevin Hitch    August 22, 2013 at 9:39pm

Please remember to get there by 8:30 if possible, so we can get you checked in and you can try out the package in a trial run. We have a big field without a plethora of baskets to match, so I want to minimize delays, even though this format lets it all move pretty quickly all the same.

2. Come down anyway to participate in the CTP 50/50 competition (open to public as well as competitors)...plus I would welcome volunteers to help out.

Kevin Hitch   August 22, 2013 at 9:17pm

3. Patronize another Ace Race in the area. I got involved in this via attending Euclid, who is doing theirs in October, and they have a great turnout and great people involved there. Plus its a sweet course. There are others next week in Warren (which I don't know if they have any available since ... more

Kevin Hitch   August 22, 2013 at 9:22pm

I hate having to keep a policy like this, so I really apologize. But every year, I will likely do this. And I will NEVER turn people away, even if we get over 100 people (which is a nice goal, hint hint), but I will need to have pre-reg commitments. I'll try to have the date, etc. posted ASAP nex ... more

Kevin Hitch    August 19, 2013 at 11:02pm

Just got confirmation that the packages have been shipped, and are expected to arrive tomorrow. And I need to double-check with Discraft, but at this point, they have issued a rather significant shipping charge overage refund, which if accurate means that I'll already clear a $300+ donation from this year's event to Wadsworth Disc Golf. I'm really hoping to convert this donation into tangible change by the end of the year via bulletin board, step completion, red & white tee kickboard lines for ... more

That's great news! I'd love to see Wadsworth expanded....

Kevin Hitch   August 22, 2013 at 9:35pm

Refund on shipping confirmed. Big Shout-out to the Discraft peeps who make this so easy to put together. I've tried to keep the costs down to basics like striping paint, sharpies, scorecard printing, and ziploc baggies to put all the small parts of the package together, and everything after my costs nets out to a donation to Wadsworth Disc Golf, who will use it for course improvements.

Dale Hodgson    August 18, 2013 at 9:03pm

Kevin, I have a portable you can use. It's an Innova but I can take the flag off the top. I live 15 minutes from the course; let me know when you need it and I'll get it to you.

I'll be there around 8:00 but if you need it earlier...I was planning on going to the course Thursday and Friday evening to throw a little; I can bring it along if there is somewhere I can drop it off.

Kevin Hitch   August 19, 2013 at 10:58am

Not necessary. 8:00 will be great. I'll have a spot marking where it can be placed, and I'll direct you to it after I check you in and get you your package. Thanks again!

Dale Hodgson   August 19, 2013 at 11:23am

Not a problem Kevin....

Kevin Hitch    August 18, 2013 at 10:06am

Less than a week away, and the weather forecast looks excellent at this point (though we are six days out, and it is Ohio...). I plan on being at the park at the crack of dawn to set up, and will gladly take check-ins as soon as possible after setting up. If you are new to disc golf, I would recommend showing up as soon as possible to try out throwing the new discs. We will try to get the shelter by holes 8 and 9 (the big shelter is the only reservable shelter, and it's not available). I ... more

** REGISTRATION DEADLINE EXTENDED TO 9PM TONIGHT! ** WOW - 61 and counting! As an FYI, I have extended the registration until 9pm tonight, as I can afford to push it that far before ordering, and I had a few folks at the tournament at Portage Lakes today expressing interest without cash. We'll see what develops with that. Speaking of Portage Lakes, the Dynamic Discs traveling Disc Store is there today all day, and will do the same at Hudson Springs tomorrow. I had to show INCREDIBLE res ... more

Kevin Hitch    August 9, 2013 at 11:28pm

Confirming that I will be at Portage Lakes State Park tomorrow morning (Saturday August 10) from about 8:30-9:30 (perhaps starting a little earlier, and going until I need to be out of the way for the player's meeting) at the Summit County Disc Golf Open, registering final entries for the Wadsworth Ace Race. Cash only, please. Also, come check out the fly-mart they'll be having at the event tomorrow...they'll be at the tournament both days (Portage Saturday, Hudson Sunday). If what I've b ... more

Kevin Hitch   August 6, 2013 at 5:56pm

As long as I have payment at that time, you'll all be good to go.

Kevin Hitch    August 4, 2013 at 12:25am

I would like to confirm that all those on the registration list at this point have been paid, and are good to go (for those that informed me that "the check is in the mail"). For those still looking to register, you have less than a week now. ***Registration closes at 12 noon on next Saturday, August 10th*** I will likely be signing up last-minute registrations on Saturday the 10th at Portage Lakes State Park at the Summit County Disc Golf Open, either prior to the player's meeting or b ... more

Is it prepay? Trying to bring a group from Norwalk but wont have an exact number of heads til closer.to.date.

Kevin Hitch   July 27, 2013 at 4:41pm

Hey Dustin. It is prepay, due by Saturday 8/10. I would love to have you guys over here, so here's hoping it can happen!

Buddy Barman   August 1, 2013 at 9:32am

if i prepay and cant make it can you send my player pack back with dustin?

Kevin Hitch   August 1, 2013 at 11:40am

Absolutely. If anyone needs them shipped, however, I would ask that they cover the shipping cost.

Kevin Hitch    July 27, 2013 at 9:46am

Mitch G    July 23, 2013 at 1:33am

are you going to cap the number of people? Or letting as many folks who sign up in time play?

Permalink
Kevin Hitch   July 23, 2013 at 1:43am

Nope, no cap. Only a few weeks of registration, though, so I'm anticipating 30-50 people. Ace Races move very quickly, and I can procure additional temp baskets to handle the volume.

Kevin Hitch    July 22, 2013 at 3:50pm

Package announced, and the disc looks sweet! It is a DRIVER again, described as beginner-friendly, and it is being produced in Discraft's new Titanium plastic - a high durability plastic with a metallic look to it.



The other items in the package include a Titanium mini, Discraft stickers, can koozy, and 2 high impact drinking glasses...AND two perpetual scorecards in two separate layouts. All in all, a fantastic return on your $25 entry.



Check out the picture on the About tab, and REGISTER NOW! REGISTRATION CLOSES AT NOON ON SATURDAY 8/10!!!

Kevin Hitch    July 19, 2013 at 9:42pm

One last note: I am moving start time up to 9am. We can't have the big shelter for that day, and the other nice-ish one is first-come, first-served, so we're going to try to stake our claim to the shelter near holes 8 & 9.



The only date available around that time of year for the big shelter is 8/31, but before I could react to that new information from the city, Warren scheduled their event for then, so I don't want a conflict.

thats even better

Kevin Hitch    July 19, 2013 at 8:03pm

Registration should be open tomorrow. Package details will likely be announced on Monday. Stay tuned. Registration will be opened this weekend and run until Saturday 8/10 at noon. This is a pretty firm deadline, so please register as soon as possible and practical.
