Tee times for Pool A and Pool B are posted as well as starting holes for Pool C.  Pool C will be another shotgun start at 9:00 a.m.  You can find all that information on the PDGA event page located here:

We also have the payout document ready with the projected payout. There will be no physical copies of payout slips.  You will just look at the Google Doc and find how much you have.  You can find that information here:

Once again we want to remind you that payout can only be picked up at the tent.  If you're local to our store in Northwest Arkansas, you can also pick it up there.  However, you can not get it online, through the mail, or at any other Dynamic Discs location.  

Thanks so much for being here and good luck tomorrow!

Water:
We still are not allowed to put out communal water jugs because of the PDGA COVID-19 Guidelines.  That means each player will be in charge of their own hydration.  Bring water and make sure you stay hydrated.  

Spectators for the Pro Side:
As of right now, the Pro Tour is still in Phase 1 of the restart.  This means no spectators.  However, we have worked with the Pro Tour to allow us to set up "Spectator Zones" where you can watch several holes from one roped off area.  You will be allowed to leave one zone and go straight to another with an escort from the volunteer working that zone.  You will not be allowed to follow the players from hole to hole. Please see the attached statement from the Disc Golf Pro Tour and Disc Side Of Heaven at the bottom of this email.  
 
Payout:
Payout will be done via the DD tent at Disc Side Of Heaven.  You must pick your payout up there.  Payout will not be available online or at any DD store.  We will have payout ready about 20 minutes after the last card for each division comes in on Sunday.  If you leave before you pick up your payout, you forfeit your payout.  We will not ship out payout.  Just to review the information we have already provided, here is a breakdown of where your money goes:

$50 went toward providing a player pack valued at $103
$5 went towards your PDGA player fee
$45 will go towards payout.  
(Junior divisions will be less because their entry fee was lower) 

Spectators for the Am Side:
Spectators and caddies will be allowed for the AM Side.  However, they are all asked to please be aware of the social distancing rules.  They must stay 6 feet away from the other players.  We are serious about this and if we notice someone not doing this, they will be asked to leave.  

OB Sheets:
OB sheets will be available in 3 different places.  OB will be listed on the digital scoring page, at the bottom of this email, and via paper when you pick up your player pack.  Please read the OB before you throw a hole.  If you have any questions about how to play a hole, play your provisional and bring it back to us after the round.
