Ace Race this week

Hey everyone,

For those of you doing the Ace race with us this weekend let's plan to meet at 9:30. Personally I'll probably be there around 8 to get first crack at the discs, but I know some of you want to sleep in a bit.

So 9:30 am is when we'll meet and start our round. If you're going to be late send me a message.

Also if you still want to sign up here's the link: https://www.discgolfscene.com/tournaments/A_Very_Pirate_Ace_Race_Presented_by_Discraft_2017

See you Saturday!

It looks like you gave Kyle my LP point.

Benjamin Pierce   August 1 at 4:36pm

The buzzz was for a bonus longest putt that wasn't for points. So there was Red 8 that was longest putt for a bonus point. And then Red 9 was longest putt for the disc. If you got both of them then I'll change it, but I thought Kyle had it on 8 and you had it on 9.

Matt Bates   August 1 at 5:27pm

Yea you are correct sir. Totally didnt realize there were two different holes haha

Little braids of nylon that you can attach to a zipper to decrease the amount of force put directly on the zipper and metal pull. They greatly extend the life of bag zippers, which go through a ton of punishment. Some companies are braiding and weaving the paracord into figures or iconic shapes to ... more

Xavier, I sent you an invite on facebook and can add you to the facebook group after that and you can see the picture of the ones I'm giving out.

Matt Bates   July 27 at 10:21am

Hole 8 red is the one going back to the swinging basket incase you forgot Ben. Should be a fun round. Hole 3 of whites is that slightly uphill hole after the longest white hole so that should be a fun ctp hole.

We're playing tomorrow

We are going to play tomorrow. It looks like we'll have clear skies from 4-6 and then a 50% chance of rain. I would like to start a little early if possible so if you're running late send me a message. We'll also do a shotgun start so hopefully we can get done a bit quicker. See you tomorrow!

Possible Thunderstorms on Saturday

If it's thundering and lightning on Saturday then I'll probably push league off until Sunday. If it's just a hard rain we'll play and probably just let the rain pass and start later or play in a little bit of a shower. If we can't play at all this weekend then it'll be a lost week and probably won't be replayed but I'll look into other options if that happens. Stay tuned here or on the facebook page or message me you email and I'll keep everyone informed as best as I can on Saturday.

Going to Firefighters

We will be heading to Firefighters this week. A great, fun course with little rough and some fun open shots mixed in with some great wooden ones. There's a stream that can come into play on a few holes. It's not to deep, if you go in. If both you and your partner go into the stream it won't be OB if you throw from the water.

CTP is hole 8 and the men and women's winner will take home a Skulboy Mayhem. Longest Putt is hole 11. Birdie Bonus holes are holes 2, 7, 13, & 14.

See you Saturday!

Bill k has a bonus point for outside the circle putt. I probably didn't Mark it correctly on the card. Hole 4 I believe.

Joe Stierman   June 25 at 12:54pm

Yeah, he hit a long one early in our round, and we started at hole 4

Benjamin Pierce   June 21 at 1:54am

Mary Beth Doyle

We're heading to Mary Beth Doyle this week. CTP is hole 14. Longest Putt is also hole 14. Birdie Bonus holes are 3, 6, 10, & 16.

Ace pool is at $92 and anyone can still join it at $2 (Once it hits $150 then the Ace tax goes into effect).

I've also made a facebook group and added some of you. You can leave it if you want and if I didn't add you then feel free to join and invite any friends and post any pictures from our league. Here's the link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1904046643172295/?source=create_flow

James Cherry   June 23 at 9:16pm

Did I read that right, play ctp and long putt on same hole? Gonna have to take a 3 at minimum if you want a shot at both lol. Only if the score card would show that you putted backwards after you try to park it to get the long putt. Could be interesting!:)

Benjamin Pierce   June 23 at 10:07pm

Yep you read that right so if you don't hit CTP you can go for Longest Putt or you can try for both and yeah it shows that you putted backwards. It's possible to get CTP, Longest Putt, and Par. Hit the CTP, throw it outside the the longest putt and then sink it on your first shot. Will anyone try it?

James Cherry   June 24 at 12:27am

I'll jump putt it off the tee lol

Hole 18 will be changed from the Birdie Bonus. I'm not sure which one will replace it but it won't be 18.

Heading to Bandemer this week

We are heading to Bandemer this week and will vote once everyone is there to see if we'll play Shorts/Shorts or Mid/Shorts. Birdie Bonus will be announced on Saturday and I'm thinking CTP will be Hole 2 and Longest Putt will be Hole 8. No prizes this week, just bonus points.

Ace pool will be over $50 and anyone can jump in at $2 now. So if you haven't played yet the cost is $15 or $17 all in and if you've played week 1 then cost is $5 or $7 all in.
