This is a best shot doubles event with two doubles pairings carding and traveling together. The winning doubles
pairing will be calculated with 80% weighted for score, 20% weighted time. In addition to a doubles pairing
winner and prize, there will be a travel team prize. No cheating, non-completion of courses, or breaking traffic
laws. Your travel team of 4 is working together logistically and still competing for score. You must start and
complete the entire event with your team of 4 intact. If anyone drops out, even on the opposing doubles pairing,
you cannot officially finish the event. Choose wisely as your travel team will need to be strong, capable, and
mentally tough.
Two doubles pairings make up a travel group (team). You must determine your travel group and sign up as a
travel team of 4. You will have one team representative, your travel group captain, who will be responsible for
signing up your team and communicating with an admin TBD. There will be 12 team spots available, registration
is on DG Scene. You are not allowed to have multiple people attempting to sign up. We will use U-Disc live
scoring for this event. Each doubles pairing will be required to have a U-Disc account setup for your doubles
pairing. Two doubles pairings will make up your travel group. You must designate your travel group’s captain.
That travel captain will be the only person communicating with the event admins.
Your travel team of 4 is required to complete each course together as a 4 card. The travel team must play and
complete each hole together. Your team does not need to travel together (for example you could have two cars
with one doubles pairing in each car), however, there will be no more than one team per vehicle allowed. (4
total people per car). Every course is required to be completed in its entirety (as specified) by every member of
the team. You do NOT have to start on hole one of a particular course.
All travel teams must meet at the starting location of Sgt. Means Park at 6:30 central time Saturday morning Nov
7th. From there they can choose how they want to approach the first day and first 4 courses. There are 4
courses to complete on day two. There will be no start meeting day 2. You decide which day two course you
want to start with. You cannot start any earlier than 6 am. You can only play day one courses on day one and day
two courses on day two. But strategize wisely to position yourself for the best possible day two start! All traffic
laws must be obeyed.
Once your team has successfully completed all day 2 courses - head to your final destination which will be Rivers
Edge. You will then play Hole 1 to complete your event. Your official end time will be the completion of Hole 1.
Your team must return to Rivers Edge by 8 pm Central time Nov 8th and complete Hole 1 before 8 pm or they
will be disqualified. All team members are required to complete Hole 1 at Rivers Edge to officially end your
event.
At Rivers Edge we will enjoy a fire, food, beer, awards, and maybe some glow golf for those that haven't had
enough!
All local and State laws are to be followed at all times during the event. Please show courtesy to all teams and
players. Please be ambassadors to not only our club, but also this event, and the sport of disc golf. This is our
first year attempting an event like this. We expect there to be flaws that will need to be improved upon for
future iterations. So please remember the most important thing: Have fun, let loose, and enjoy being part of this
event.
