Disc golf singles tournament
About this tournament
The entry fee is a beer (root, ginger, or barley & hops). Anyone that brings a unique beer to the tournament gets to take strokes off of their score.
The format is random draw, worst shot, doubles.
You will get your partner and card assigned at random.
Because it is worst shot doubles, your opponents will choose which shot you will use until you or your partner gets a disc in the basket.
Because it is April Fool's Shenanigan Doubles, you will change partners, and have some holes with rules about what and/or how you throw.
Please check out the talk section for more information and feel free to ask questions. The sponsors have donated some great prizes and even a small players pack. Please register early so that I can figure out numbers for the players packs because I would hate to run out.
The most you lose is your beer. The most you win is a beer or two (plus some donated prizes). I will bring non-barley and hops replacements for all non-drinkers.
If people want to have an ace pool and/or a 50:50 CTP, I'll be happy to run it.
Please support our sponsors:
Please note the city of Charlotte does not allow consumption of alcohol within Lincoln Park. Also, the tournament director and up to two "card filler" volunteers that may or may not play reserve the right to collect a single beer fee as payment for organizing the event.

Congrats and Thank You for working so hard to basically donate some things to your disc golfing friends.

I am supposed to send back the unsold Gateway discs but I don't know when. I know that I had a lot of people interested that didn't have the cash today. If you are interested in getting one, please send me a message. I don't think that we sold out of anything.

This was a great event. If you do it again, I will be back. Hopefully, I'll be a better player then. Thanks for providing a venue where an inexperienced player can get a little time in without feeling like a drag on the rest of the group.

Jimmy Jean #56401 Sorry for the late reg but wasnt sure til today. Sounds like its going to be a lot of fun!

One of the giveaways should be for the worst player! Since its worst shots doubles :-)
Chris Smith April 6, 2013 at 8:28am
This is the last rule that I will be posting. I still need to find giveaways for five more discs donated by Gateway but the rules are complete. On hole E, you will have to release every throw with your feet pointed directly away from the basket.

Just a note for those that may be traveling to the tournament and planning to pick up a beer on the way. Eaton county is kind of a dry county on Sundays before noon. I don't know the specifics and I have heard that you can still buy beer at the M-50 Party Store but that is probably a 10-15 minute drive from the course. You may want to be sure that you have your registration fee on Saturday "just in case".
Benjamin Wonders April 5, 2013 at 8:03pm
With every special rule announcement, I am more excited for Sunday to get here.
Chris Smith April 5, 2013 at 7:42pm
Your drive on hole 12 has to roll. If it doesn't, your second shot is from the tee pad...
Chris Smith April 5, 2013 at 7:16am
My wife Char and I plan to spend most of the day at the course on Sunday so there won't be a lot of time to do laundry. We may need to hang some of it on hole 5... CTP for hole 5 will win an Evolution Element donated by Gateway Disc Sports.

Ok, here is the deal on the Gateway discs. I'll be selling them for $10 per disc. So if you show up with a beer and $15 you will walk away with a tournament stamped Gateway disc, a key chain bottle opener, probably a prize of some sort (I now have more than 40 to give away), probably a beer from someone else, a chance at ace pool money ($2 to get in to the ace pool), a chance at CTP money ($3 to get into the 50/50 CTP), and a crazy round of doubles disc golf.

The CTP on Hole D will win a DD Judge donated by Dynamic Discs
