2018 rocket city blast was ran much better than 2019. Am pools were told to report to UAH after their final round to pick up player packs/shirts which we didn’t receive on Friday. It was stated there would be a award ceremony at 2pm which never happened and there wasn’t a ace pot throw off for B pool at this time either. There was so much confusion and very little communication from tournament staff. I will not be back for 2020.

It’s a big tournament with a lot of moving parts. Recommendations rather than condemnation help the future TDs do better in upcoming years.

Darius Turrentine   May 27, 2019 at 1:41pm

Recommendations are easy in this sense. If you say you’re going to do something and take people’s money for it, do it.

Tournament guide schedule shows Indian Creek is still on the schedule? Please advise!

Danny Newton   May 24, 2019 at 12:07am

I am so sorry. I posted the old guide before Indian creek got hit. If you can go check out the Facebook event page.

Hi, With the AMs playing 18 holes at UAH - is there a list or caddy book for those 18 holes ?

Danny Newton   May 23, 2019 at 6:32pm

I am having trouble figuring out how to post the caddy book on dgscene. If you have Facebook, the guide has been posted in the tournament event page.

I am unable to make it next weekend and would like to keep my players pack instead of getting a refund. Is that possible if I know another player who will be there and can pick it up for me?

Danny Newton   May 16, 2019 at 2:56am

Yes we can do that. I will remove you from the players but not refund you. Thank you

Michele Adcock   May 16, 2019 at 11:02am

Great! Thank you! Josh Crumley will be there and you can give him my players pack. I really appreciate it!

Danny Newton    May 15, 2019 at 4:55pm


We had some straight-line winds blow down some very large trees at Indian Creek. That course will be unplayable for the Blast. So there will be some changes made to the schedule.

Please take note of these changes and plan accordingly.

Pool A
Round 1 -Mastin(no change)
Round 2- Brahan
Round 3 - UAH 23 hole(no change)

Pool B
Round 1 - UAH 18 hole
Round 2 - Mastin(no change)
Round 3 - Brahan (no change)

Margaret Baudendistel (96011, FA1) and I (96295, MA3) need to withdraw. Sorry for the hassle, we were looking forward to coming down there. :( If our towels could be handed off to Josh Crumley (MA2 103682) or Michele Powell (FA1, 100117) that would be mucho appreciated! Thanks and maybe we will see you all next year.

Danny Newton   May 16, 2019 at 2:57am

We can do that.

Josh Crumley   May 23, 2019 at 1:55am

Looks like I'm picking up for multiple people. Thanks Danny.

Michele Adcock   May 23, 2019 at 3:39pm

Thanks Crumley! You're the best!! :)

Bryson James    May 12, 2019 at 1:30am

Waitlist MPO please and thank you!


Chris Parker    May 9, 2019 at 4:36am

Went to sign up for mpo and it says the open division is at 37/40 but it's putting me on the waitlist. Why is that?


Jesse Arzola    May 8, 2019 at 1:44pm

Can I bump myself and two others from intermediate to advanced? Pdga #s, 98803, 116031 and 106313?

Danny Newton   May 8, 2019 at 2:24pm

We can do that. I'll take care of it. Thank you

Jesse Arzola   May 8, 2019 at 7:04pm

I appreciate it.

Billy Turnbull    April 30, 2019 at 9:55pm

Hey something came up and I will not be able to play this tournament, is there anyway I can get a refund? sorry

Danny Newton   May 2, 2019 at 12:59am

No problem. Refund issued

Billy Turnbull   May 2, 2019 at 1:10am

Thank you

Pool A announcement

Sunday at UAH we will be having tee times! The length of the course makes this an easy decision. A shotgun start would mean a very long walk, for some cards, before we throw one disc.


Aaron Keen    April 18, 2019 at 5:21pm

What does personalized mean for the waffle towel? Is it your # or name? Is there a way to get it to be something other than what you signed up as?

Danny Newton   April 18, 2019 at 8:03pm

Yes, it is your name and number. It technically could be something other than what you signed up as, but that would make.my job more difficult. They will not print anything inappropriate. I would like to avoid having to keep up with anything more than what is already on my plate. Out of curiosity, what do you want to put on there?

Aaron Keen   April 19, 2019 at 8:29pm

I was going to see if I could get Wildcat instead of Aaron Keen and then my number. If this is a huge pain in the neck I understand, I don't want to make any waves

Bethel Barrett    April 18, 2019 at 1:08pm

Danny, please move me to MA60... I had to sign up in MA50 group to just get in the tournament. The MA55 and MA60 division do not have any associated cost with them during the registration process. Appreciate your help in this matter !

Danny Newton   April 18, 2019 at 8:05pm

You have been moved. Apologies for the inconvenience. I believe I have that sorted out now and.

Bethel Barrett    April 18, 2019 at 1:06am

trying to signup in MA60. supplying all info and checking Ace Pot. Checkout in PayPal is only charging the $5 and fees for Paypal.... is there something broken in the registration process ?? I can’t see anything I’m diing on my end to make this happen.

Danny Newton   April 18, 2019 at 2:24pm

It was not your fault. I put $0 for the entry fee for that division. Apologies for that. You are signed up now.

Danny Newton    April 6, 2019 at 3:28am

Early check in and players pack pick up will be at THE BAR AT 805 from 6 PM til 9 PM. Live music begins at 10 PM!
Address: 2500 Clinton Avenue suite d, Huntsville Alabama, 35805

Danny Newton   April 6, 2019 at 3:33am

On Friday 5/24

Joshua Patten    March 16, 2019 at 1:13am

Is indian creek up and running again or is still in renovation stage

Danny Newton   March 16, 2019 at 3:18pm

From what I understand, it is in renovation mode.

Joshua Patten   March 16, 2019 at 8:39pm

Thank you, Sir
