I have confirmed with the venue that camping will be available on the driving range for a fee of $25 per person for the whole weekend (Fri - Sun). There will be some portable restrooms available so it's not quite "primitive" camping like last year.

Please plan to check in at the pro shop and pay before setting up camp.

Rather than posting here, please send me an email! I'll respond much more quickly there:

Will Hole 3 at the Gorge play as Hazard or OB? The graphic in the email shows hazard but the writing section says it will be OB with double drop zones

Henry Childres   August 15 at 5:15pm

Good catch! That one will be OB, as the rules sheet states. This will match the tee sign that is out on the course as well.

Henry Childres   August 15 at 5:16pm

We'll get the caddy book updated and sent out again.

Sam Withrow    August 14 at 12:02am

When will OB rules or caddy book be available?

Sam Withrow   August 14 at 4:32pm

Thanks for that, it's helpful. I'm wondering if we are using the same OB rules and who's playing what tees.

Henry Childres   August 14 at 5:08pm

I'm working on the tournament info email that I'll send to all players ASAP. Hoping to get that out this afternoon but it might be tomorrow.

Sam Withrow   August 14 at 6:18pm

Perfect. Thanks Henry!

Jacob Delgado    August 10 at 2:04pm

Any chance you'll open more spots?

Henry Childres   August 10 at 2:41pm

Unfortunately not. We are at capacity.

Michael Hughes    July 14, 2023 at 8:24pm

Since MA1 and MA2 are in the same pool now can I swap into MA2? If it's too much hassle, no worries.

What divisions play what courses? How many rounds?

Henry Childres   July 12, 2023 at 3:11pm

Check the pictures tab for the schedule. All pools play 3 rounds each.

James Thrift    July 3, 2023 at 3:07pm

Hey Henry-

Sent an email, but it might have gotten lost over the weekend.

Do we know the layouts for the Gorge for each division and if we are going to use DGPT rules or the “normal” course rules.

IE hazards Vs OB on holes like 3, mandos vs no mandos on 2 short pads on hole 9 as a par three or long pad as a par four.

Etc etc.


Henry Childres   July 5, 2023 at 5:37pm

I think I replied to your email, but in case others are wondering. Here's what we'll play: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1bBsR_qMBYZMBMi-KGktePz-9wy1H7CwD/view

Can we get the waitlist for 5 bucks please ty

Henry Childres   June 21, 2023 at 1:35pm

The full entry fee is the fee for the wait list. In my experience, this works much better. Any players remaining on the wait list after the event starts will be refunded, of course.

Adam Luthman   June 21, 2023 at 5:05pm

I can confirm that Henry is right about this system being easier. I recently ran an event without charging full entry for the waitlist and it was a nightmare getting people to pay once they were promoted off the waitlist.

Montgomery M Chitkhin    June 21, 2023 at 12:08am

Can I still get in at MA50?

Henry Childres   June 21, 2023 at 1:34pm

MA50 is in the A pool, which is currently full. Your best bet right now is to hop on the wait list.

Casey Mason    June 20, 2023 at 2:33pm

Planning ahead - what time is ceremony Sunday? 3hrs out so bummed previous MA2 pool assignment worked better so we could scedaddle after 1 rd instead of 2. Might take Monday off now that we’ll prob get back 9pm + I’m assuming. Thanks for any info and managing the TD life!

Henry Childres   June 20, 2023 at 3:36pm

Hard to say an exact time but we'll keep things moving and get awards distributed as efficiently as possible so everyone can hit the road.

James Thrift    June 20, 2023 at 10:25am

Henry I sent 2 emails this morning. Please disregard all requests to change divisions. I would like to stay in the current MA2 division slot.



Sergio Dos Santos    June 20, 2023 at 1:06am

Will be my first time playing at this location? Are there several courses? If so, which one will
MA50 be playing?

Henry Childres   June 20, 2023 at 1:40am

$10/round or $15/day. You’ll have to check with them on their hours.

Jason Bird   June 20, 2023 at 10:45am

You can choose a date and tee time on their website.

Sergio Dos Santos   June 20, 2023 at 1:02pm

Ok. thanks.

Zachary Guess    June 19, 2023 at 11:07pm

Sorry, meant to sign up for MPO, can I get switched please?

Austin Peterman   June 19, 2023 at 11:09pm

Should be able to edit your registration under the “players” tab

Austin Peterman   June 19, 2023 at 11:10pm

Oh I guess not RN

Henry Childres    June 19, 2023 at 10:17pm

Apologies for the confusion, everyone.
I have been in touch with Disc Golf Scene ahead of time and was assured that the options were set up correctly. This is obviously not the case.
I have reached back out to them and we’ll get it sorted out as quickly as possible!

Adam Luthman   June 19, 2023 at 10:31pm

Not sure what went wrong, but thanks for handling it so quickly Henry! You’re the man

Henry Childres   June 19, 2023 at 10:35pm

Thanks! Credit to the DGS support team, especially Ben Swam!

Terry Lowman    June 19, 2023 at 10:11pm

Same issue here. Wants you to sponsor hole


George Christas Jr.    June 19, 2023 at 10:09pm

Registration now not working at all even without the early sponsorship question.


Clark Nichols    June 19, 2023 at 10:01pm

It’s not letting me sign up without sponsoring a hole?

Phil Aubel   June 19, 2023 at 10:02pm


James Thrift   June 19, 2023 at 10:24pm

That's because it is in the early registration phase where you must sponsor a hole in order to sign up.

James Thrift   June 19, 2023 at 10:28pm

I guess I am wrong ... sorry about that

Henry Childres    June 12, 2023 at 7:45pm

Starting this Friday, June 16th at 6pm, you will be able to register early as a hole sponsor. This is a $50 option that is limited to 1 per hole, so 54 spots.


Casey Mason    June 2, 2023 at 11:29pm

Any sponsorship or volunteer opportunities for early registration?!

Brad Gagnon   June 7, 2023 at 11:53am


Henry Childres   June 12, 2023 at 7:02pm

I'm working on getting details together. I'll post here and in the facebook group when that is complete.
