About this tournament
SpAce Race 2013! round 5 is an ace run tournament held at Horning's Hideout Highlands course. Based on our usual turn out of 50 players, all courses at Horning's will be open for play on the day of the tournament, including the Highlands course.
For an ace run you throw from the tee trying to make a hole in one with no further throws to complete the hole. 2 rounds played consecutively, 3 throws from the tee per hole per player.
Bring your own discs to throw, with holes ranging from 100 feet to 250 feet. Holes #5 and #6 have alternate shorter tee pads, making the longest throw around 220 feet if you wish to play those pads. Double points for scoring from the regular #5 and #6 tee pads.
There are two divisions, an open and a women's with separate winners and pay outs.
12-12:45 PM registration/warm-up, 12:45 PM Constellation and SpAce Invader CTP throw offs, 1 PM player meeting, 1:15 PM tee off. 20$ buy in includes the player pack disc,1$ for the Double Ace pot, 5% for the series final winners, with the rest going to cash payouts. Cash only, pay at event. 72 players max for the event (18 groups of 4).
Scoring will be 5 points for an ace, 2 points for metal.
Play with your own group of up to 4 players . Registered groups smaller than 4 players and individuals will be assigned to foursomes.
Horning's Hideout has a 4$ per person day use fee. You can also buy prorated annual passes, which are a great value. Horning's has three great eighteen hole courses, so you can always spend the rest of the afternoon playing the other courses after the event.
Through 4 rounds and 1200 ace attempts at hole #1, no one has aced it yet during this year's SpAce Race. It's the only hole left un-aced on the season. I know of at least a couple players who have aced it during warm-ups, but so far no one has hit it when it counts. A funny thing -- I was filming on hole #1 when this series kicked off back in April, when the very first official throw on the basket (#1 of 1200) was hucked by Andrew Every, a shot which scooped off the inside of the basket and out. For all I know that might be the closest to acing anyone has come on #1 this year!
To amp up the anticipation of an ace on #1, we're going to start a separate 1$ ace pot each round for that hole alone, buy in optional. First person to nail it takes it, with 10% of the pot going to each other player on the card who bought in for the separate 1$ pot.
Round 5 will feature a player's pack choice of any Dynamic Disc BioFuzion disc, or any Latitude 64 recycled plastic disc, Muffin Buckets, plus the spaced out scoring system unique to the SpAce Race! I'll post a online form later which you can use to specify the disc you want before I make the order near the end of the month.
In round 5: Lonely One... any aces made with your player pack disc instantly wins you another disc! It is not required to throw the the player pack disc on any or every hole.

SpAce Race 2013! consists of 8 monthly ace run tournaments held at Horning's Hideout Highlands course. The Highlands course is great for ace runs as most holes are less than 200 feet.
There will be an overall series winner for the individual with the highest point total counting their 6 best rounds (allowing for two missed events or throw out your worst two scores if you've attended all 8 rounds). Top 10 series finishers will also receive prizes according to their 6 max best scores. 5% of each round's prize pool is saved for the series' winners.
Feel free to attend just one or as many rounds of SpAce Race 2013! as you wish.
Beginning in round 4 we will now have two divisions: Open and Women's. Women are free to play in either division. The women's division has shorter temporary tees on most of the longer holes.
Top 3 point-scorers in each division get the highest payouts, and after that there are two payout tiers for the SpAce Cadet Cashers.
Constellation and Space Invader scoring earns you throws for closest to the pin throw offs prior to the following SpAce Race round. Only full shots thrown in an attempt to make an ace count toward Constellation and Space Invader points.
As mentioned before, you can instantly win another disc if you ace with your player pack disc.
On half of the holes there will be a 5 gallon bucket on top of the basket. If you knock the bucket off with your disc you win a couple of small Gatorades or a Starbucks canned drink and a large muffin! Bucket hits of any kind also count as a metal hit of 2 points for scoring.
The Double Ace pot is won when 2+ aces are made by a group on the same hole, both rounds of 18 included. If only one group hits the Double Ace pot once in a series round, 10% of the pot will go to each non-acing member of the group, with the rest divided evenly among the acers or to the individual who alone made 2+ aces. If the Double Ace pot is not won in a monthly round it will carry over to the next monthly round. If there are no Double Ace pot winners in the final round, the pot will be divided equally according to aces in the final round. less

Congratulations to Brent Cameron for winning back to back SpAce Races, and Dawn Hotckins for winning the ladies division! On an afternoon that saw the least amount of aces in a SpAce Race round so far, with only 7, Brent nabbed 3 of them himself! We had the 1$ side pot for hole #1 this past round, because it was the only hole left to have not been aced in this year's series. As fate would have it, it was the most aced hole of the day!

Congratulations to Brent Cameron for winning back to back SpAce Races, and Dawn Hotckins for winning the ladies division! On an afternoon that saw the least amount of aces in a SpAce Race round so far, with only 7, Brent nabbed 3 of them himself!
We had the 1$ side pot for hole #1 this past round, because it was the only hole left to have not been aced in this year's series. As fate would have it, it was the most aced hole of the day! Aaron Ussery got things started with a smooth ace dead in the heart of the center of the chains. His hopes of taking down the pot single-throwedly went down in crashing chains as Brent Cameron followed up with a perfect little flick ace, and the Jason Krupa banged in the 3rd ace on #1 of the day less than 15 minutes later! All 3 had put their buck in, so they split the pot. The double ace-pot survived being hit for the first time in 3 rounds, so it rolls over to next round.

Sign me up for the 5th Installment of SpAce rAce, Commander. I have returned from my home planet with new technology to Earth that will improve my chances of getting Ace's and lower my scores. Unfortunately, I cannot reveal this newfound ability to anybody which makes me...The Lonely One....
