About this tournament

Hello
This year's DEPC will be a very unique event, it is our largest event to date and we have complex safety issues to consider with COVID. Below is a full list of the week's events, schedule and pool assignments, and safety precautions.
Ace pool is included in entry and is divided by pool. If an ace is not hit in a pool it will be donated to the GVDG Scholarship fund. Hole 9 at the Meadow has a $300 ace bounty provided by a local anonymous businessman.

COVID Precautions:
These precautions are for all events associated with the Down East Players Cup.
In the current Covid environment, the parks and PDGA have placed some requirements in order to hold the DEPC.
There is no in person players meeting, the players meeting will be emailed and posted on social media on Wednesday Sept 16.
Players are encouraged to wear masks at all times except when throwing.
Players must wear a mask when they are unable to social distance.
Spectators are welcome however they must always maintain strict social distancing from competitors and wear a mask at all times while in the park.
Players should only touch their own equipment and bring all supplies they will need for the round with them.
