About this tournament
The number of holes played will depend on how many permanent holes are in place at the time of the event, but at least 36 holes will be played.
*** NOTE - REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED ***
This year's Ace Race disc is a long range driver, with some stability but expected to be easy to throw.
The player's package this year includes two prototype discs, both in Elite Z plastic; an Ace Race mini; a Discraft logo premium water bottle; a 5-year vinyl sticker; and a Discraft pair of UV sunglasses.
For those who don't know how an Ace Race works, the basics:
* One throw per hole. Record a tally only of aces (holes-in-one) and metal hits. Metal hits for this tournament will include hits via skip or roll.
* Holes will be up to 250 feet in length; however, all holes will be realistically hit by an average player for ace, so certain existing holes may have modified tees to increase this opportunity.
* The player with the most Aces (with metal hits as a tiebreaker) will win a package including a Discraft deluxe disc bag and an assortment of discs.
* If you don't win first prize, you still end up with good times and a package whose value far exceeds the entry fee.
Given that this type of play is faster than a full tournament, play is expected to be rather quick.
A portion of the entry fee will be put back into improvements in the Wadsworth course.
You are permitted to purchase additional packs for the same $25.
There will be additional contest offerings (such as a separate cash ace pool) available on the day of the event.
** NOTE: We have reserved the large stone shelter in the park on the south end on the outer loop (on the other side of the football stadium from hole 1, closest to 4 basket)
Anyone willing to lend the use of temporary baskets to complete the circuit (in the event the full 18 holes are not in place), please contact me. I am also looking for volunteers to help before the tournament with a brief clinic to show new players some tips on throwing the discs, to increase their ability to compete in the event. less

Registration is now closed, packages are now ordered. I appreciate the offers for help, and feel free to offer again at the event if I do not contact you in advance.
I will likely be heading to the course next weekend to do some course prep. I will try to post in advance when that will be in the event anyone would like to help. Thanks!

Prepay will be required. You can register here online via paypal, or you may mail payment to me. One caveat that may change that is that I'll need to place a minimum order. If I have fewer registrations than that minimum order, I'll order the extras for first-come, first-serve day-of registrations. You still have close to 2 weeks, though.

do you have to pay to register or can i pay the day of?

Oh, rereading PKs question, to be clear...you do NOT have to register online if you prefer to mail in your entry.
Kevin Hitch August 9, 2012 at 6:25am
PK, you are correct on the deadline. I'm glad I was able to fix that oversight. I finally played Parma (VMDGC) a few weeks ago, and loved it, though unfortunately I'll not be able to make your tourney. See you at the Rock, though!

This sounds awesome. Thanks for rescheduling, because I'd like to check out the new course and play in the ace race. Thanks Kevin, much appreciated! So to make this clear we have to sign up on line before 10-11

Wadsworth city has waived the reservation charge for the large shelter, so we'll be meeting there. It has a big fireplace in the event that late october comes with cold weather.

Yes, it is pre-pay, but you have plenty of time, and you can pay here via paypal or mail it to me. paying online is something like $2.39 extra.
If you register online, you're automagically signed up. If you are sending a check, you can let me know that you sent it and I'll add you, or else I'll add you when I receive it.
