About this tournament
SpAce Race 2014! Round 2 is an ace run tournament held at Horning's Hideout Highlands course. All courses at Horning's will be open for play on the day of the tournament (including the Highlands course, depending on the number of tournament players).
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.
You may use one of the SpAce Race 2014 custom stamped discs on each hole. If you make an ace with that disc you win another disc!
There are two divisions: Men's and Women's with separate winners and pay outs.
10-10:45 AM registration/warm-up, 10:45 AM player meeting, 11 AM tee off. 4 PM awards.
22$, which includes 1$ for the Double Ace pot, 1$ for the series prize pool, 8$ for cash payouts and prizes and 12$ for scrip prize payouts. Cash only, pay at event.
The main scoring category (for cash prizes) will be 5 points for an ace, 2 points for metal, 2 points for hitting the bucket on top of the basket, whether it falls off or not.
GROUP AND TOURNAMENT SIZE:
Play with your own group of up to 4 players (groups of 5 with one player playing as the "Fifth Wheel Fleet" -- playing for the double ace pot by themselves, is also allowed). Registered groups smaller than 4 players and individuals will form groups of 4 or 5 players after the playing meeting.
18 groups of 5 for a maximum of 90 players (with a little leeway for some groups of 5). If the waitlist happens to rise to 40+ players I'll look into adding another SpAce Race day on Sunday, the day after, if people are interested.
HORNING'S HIDEOUT ADMISSION FEE:
Horning's Hideout has a 4$ per person day use fee. You can also buy annual passes, which are a great value even if you play there even just a couple of times per month.

Pay day of event, cash only.
SpAce Race 2014! consists of 7 monthly ace run tournaments held at Horning's Hideout Highlands course, from March through September. There will be 9 total rounds (36 holes per round), as July and August will feature two 36 hole round days. 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 event scores (allowing for three missed rounds or throw out your worst three scores if you've played all 9 rounds). Top 10 series finishers will also receive prizes according to their 6 max best scores. We will also have Women's top 3 series finishers this year.
This year there will also be Quadrant Champions -- the top 3 series finishers from the following quadrants: The Northern Hemisphere (Washington State), Center of the Universe (Portland/Washington County, and The Southern Contingency (anything south of Portland). More bragging rights to bag!
Feel free to attend just one or as many rounds of SpAce Race 2014! as you wish.
Top 3 point-scorers in each division get the highest payouts, and after that there are payout tiers for the SpAce Cadet Cashers. The number of cashers and tiers is dependent on the number of entries.
Constellation, Space Invader and Area 51 points earn you electronic raffle tickets for a raffle held during the awards ceremony on the same day. Only full shots thrown in an attempt to make an ace count toward Constellation and SpAce Invader points.
New in 2014 is the "Area 51" -- a flagged off rectangle behind each basket. Any disc that lands in Area 51 gets you an Area 51 point, good for an electronic raffle ticket. Any Constellation and SpAce Invader points made inside of an Area 51 are worth double points. Constellation and SpAce Invader points will be explained in the player meeting.
On top of each basket there is a 5 gallon bucket. If you knock the bucket off with your disc you win a 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 on the same hole. 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

There were a record 29 aces made, and the average score was the highest in SpAce Race history!
The "Top Tournament Team" for round #2 was comprised of Jaycen Ness, Teyo Tyree, Shawn Schenk, Keisha Williams, and Fletcher White. They all shot very well, and their top 3 scores added up to fantastic 43 points.
The 2nd place team with 39 points consisted of Rich Jacoby, Jason Hardin, Jake Hardin, and Jeremy Hardin.
A lot of new SpAce Racers did very well, as did many of the seasoned SpAce Race veterans.
A couple of the many highlights:
Craig Robinson acing #2 and then knocking off the muffin bucket with his next shot!
I was standing on the #4/#18 tee pad watching the action for awhile and saw Junior Canady knock off the muffin bucket on hole #4. Not even 10 seconds later Greg Prior knocked off the muffin bucket on hole #18! Nice shootin', gentlemen! I've got a pic. of the two to post...

Important Updates for SpAce Race Round 2: SpAce Station The buy in price was originally listed as 20$, but now it's 22$. I felt the bump was necessary to cover the additional prizes for the Area 51 points, as well as the fact that the series prize pool amount per buy in is a little bit higher this year, at 1$. So here's the breakdown of where the 22$ goes: 12$ scrip payout prizes (will go very deep, more than 50% of players possibly), 1$ double ace pot, 1$ series prize pool, 8$ ... more
Important Updates for SpAce Race Round 2: SpAce Station
The buy in price was originally listed as 20$, but now it's 22$. I felt the bump was necessary to cover the additional prizes for the Area 51 points, as well as the fact that the series prize pool amount per buy in is a little bit higher this year, at 1$. So here's the breakdown of where the 22$ goes: 12$ scrip payout prizes (will go very deep, more than 50% of players possibly), 1$ double ace pot, 1$ series prize pool, 8$ cash payouts (cost of prizes won from hitting muffin buckets and SpAce Race disc aces deducted from this amount).
If round 2 is the first SpAce Race you're attending this year, you can purchase a series score card for 2$, as well as SpAce Race custom stamped discs. Aces made with a SpAce Race disc win you another disc automatically.
There will be a modification to the raffle prizes awarded after the tournament. Prizes will first go to the clear winners of the Constellation, SpAce Invader and Area 51 point categories. Additionally, the person with the second highest number of Area 51 points will pick a prize. After that, additional prizes for each of the categories will be selected via the raffle.
The "SpAce Station" element of the round works like this: during the player meeting, two numbers will be selected at random representing 2 of the 18 holes on the course. For those two holes, any metal or bucket hits wins you a drink and muffin (as if you'd hit a muffin bucket, but still only circle the 2 points if you knocked the bucket off), and any ace, regardless of the disc, wins you a SpAce Race disc! Souped up Super SpAce Station holes!
