About this tournament

I totally missed the discussion about merchandise (ppac or sales). So, I left without my usual tournament momento. Did anything get produced for the event? If so, can I call "dibs" on a disc or shirt. Given the low entry fee, I expect some charge.

Thanks to all the fire-keepers for keeping the tournament "coals" hot enough to get the flames going yesterday. I'll keep my eyes turned toward Detroit and make a Belle Isle tournament one of my anchor events in 2014. Any Belle Isle supporters coming to the west side of Michigan should feel free to contact me (in Grand Rapids) if you would like a tour of the area courses. We even have a course (Riverside) that is a fair attempt at a course next to (but not in) a big river.

Thanks to everyone who put on the tournament. Disc'd with two good groups of people. Pretty good turn-out on short notice.

Scott, Will we be able to sign up and register on the morning of the event?

I would like to sign up but I am wondering which division. I am pretty sure recreation, I have never been in a tournament before. But if recreation is for first time players I think I can move up. I guess I'm looking for an answer to the skill level of recreation. Yes I can throw. more than 25 feet but I am not going to be rattling off par after par. I'm more of a good drive and then 4 putt lol.

Really? It's unsanctioned now? Open is really 25 now? And has a players pack? Yyyyyyyyyyyyy?

This event will not be a sanctioned tourney due to last minute unforeseeable changes, however there will be cheaper entry fees. We will be looking for good competition, but will be taking a more laid back approach on the day. Please come and support us by showing the park you want the course there; this is an important step on establishing disc golf downtown. It will be a very awarding play through and we will be providing trophies to winners of their devision.

Sorry for all the lack of information. Due to unforeseeable conflict we had to re jump through all the hoops again this month trying to get this event re-approved by the new park director. There has been a change at the park that derailed us momentarily and had to resubmit all the paperwork. We were uncertain of all the details of this event up until this past tuesday but are all back on track now, we did not want to post up or build hype with a chance of cancelation and for that we apologize.

Sorry for all the lack of information. Due to unforeseeable conflict we had to re jump through all the hoops again this month trying to get this event re-approved by the new park director. There has been a change at the park that derailed us momentarily and had to resubmit all the paperwork. We were uncertain of all the details of this event up until this past tuesday but are all back on track now, we did not want to post up or build hype with a chance of cancelation and for that we apologize. We are happy to say now that everything has been green lit again and there will most definitely be a tournament on the course this Sunday. The grass has been cut and baskets installed. We have spent a lot of time and money this season on the property getting it ready and cant explain how frustrating it has been having to re-apply this month for our event as new operations on the island stalled us out and made us question if this was even going to work out. We appreciate all of our followers out there and I hope that all of our followers out there know that we have been fighting very hard to get this project developed for you all and sometimes it seems like a big risk without getting the park to open it up full time. They have allowed us to run this Sunday so please make it out to support our cause by showing the new park director what competitive disc golf looks like. There will be really nice plastic available from past events this season that I have been shopping and acquiring from some of this seasons most limited releases. Again we apologize for leaving you all in the dark for so long, but all of us at Detroit Disc Golf have been there with you just keeping our fingers crossed. I promise you that this course will offer enough excitement in play that it will be totally worth the wait.

Yes this event is on, much course work is planned for this week to bring it up to being playable.
Jim B August 20, 2013 at 5:14pm
I was just told this event is on. You can either register the day of the event or pre-reg now.
Fred Vocino August 20, 2013 at 9:39am
When is the deadline for pre - registration? Is there a charge for on site reg?
Joey "ThaSicknaz" Gulyas August 19, 2013 at 10:54am
If I had to guess this is a NO GO! I went to Belle Isle on Saturday morning, and the course has NOT been cut ALL season. The fairways are knee high. The park is fenced in, and we were told it was closed. We called the number listed and were told they were having "insurance issues." Doesnt sound good.
Joe Willyard August 16, 2013 at 11:28pm
I've seen no updates or anything....is this tourney happening or what?
christopher rogalewski August 7, 2013 at 7:18pm

Please note my pre-pay registration: Fred Vocino #51798, MG1. Where I see presumed clarifications re: division prices, I will pay-pal register. I am not distracted by course page posts re: course readiness or city bureaucracy.

Is this the same tournament as the Nov 6th, 2011 and October 27th 2012 event? Music, vendor trucks for lunch, beer, disc's for sale, t-shirts for sale etc. This is my favorite tournament and have been confused by the tournament series posted here. I don't commit to series. I like one and done events and the last 2 tournaments were a blast.
