Hey Disc Golfers!

We are less than a week away from the Persimmon Ridge Disc Golf Retreat. We are excited to have you and truly appreciate you signing up for the event. Since we are still following all the COVID guidelines set forth by the PDGA, this email will essentially be your player meeting. There's a lot of information here so please read through all of it.

Layouts:
MPO, FPO, MA1 and MP40 will play the LONG tee pads all weekend.
Everyone else will play the short tee pads all weekend.

Schedule:
Friday- Player Check-In from 12:00 p.m.-9:30 p.m. Check-in will be at the RV until dark. After that, we will go to the event center for check-in. Doubles from 12:00 p.m.-6:00 p.m. Cards can go out up until 6:00 p.m. No cards after 6:00 p.m. Cost will be $20 per team for doubles with Pro and AM divisions. Pros will play Longs. AMS will play shorts. Practice rounds will be available for $5. Cart rentals will also be available but there are only 5 carts out there. Depending on the rain, we may not let any carts out so they don't tear up the course. We will make that decision on Friday.

Saturday-Tee Times begin at 7:30 a.m. Late player check-in will also be available at the RV for anyone who can't check-in before 9:30 p.m. on Friday. You MUST check-in at least 20 minutes before your tee time!! Arkansauce will go on stage at 7:30 p.m. and play until 9:00 p.m. You must have a ticket to enter the concert. (More on that later).

Sunday-Tee Times begin at 7:30 a.m. As each group comes in, we will be paying you out as your division finishes. You can either go home or go out and watch the pros. There will be no awards ceremony as we continue to try to follow the PDGA COVID-19 guidelines.

Payout:
AM payout will be done via payout from the RV ONLY. You can also add it to your account at the Dynamic Discs Northwest Arkansas store. YOU CAN NOT GET IT ONLINE. You CAN NOT take payout from the Persimmon Ridge Store. You can however buy as much stuff there as you want. :)

PRO payout will be done via Paypal. We will confirm your PayPal address as you check-in. Monday is a bank holiday. That means we will actually do payout for the Pro divisions on Tuesday, September 8th.

The Band:
Arkansauce will go on live at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday. They will be playing until 9:00 p.m. or so. During the concert, the Events Center/Disc Golf Store will be closed. You must have a ticket to get into the concert. Each player will receive 2 tickets when they check-in for the concert. The player and their wife/girlfriend/boyfriend/caddy whoever can come. That's it. At the concert, we encourage (but not require) you to wear your mask and would like you to spread out as much as possible. The last thing we want is 200 people crammed into one spot breathing on each other. Arkansauce will have a merch table set up, including custom discs, so please support them. They are disc golfers as well and overall good peoples.

Keeping Score:
Each group will be keeping score two different ways. One person will keep score on a traditional paper scorecard. That person will keep the score the entire round and not pass the card. A second person will keep score digitally on the PDGA.com/scores app. To keep score digitally, go to the pdga.com/score website. Enter the password: persimmon in and you should be good to go. EVERY SINGLE CARD MUST KEEP SCORE DIGITALLY!!!! The paper card can be thrown away once scores are double-checked. The paper card is just there as a checks and balances thing.

Camping:
Primitive camping is available at Persimmon Ridge. You must check-in before going to the camping area. Please let us know if you plan on camping by emailing [email redacted] with your name and how many people are in your party. A hose will be set up at the old cart barn for outdoor primitive showers for the guys. Ladies are welcome to shower in the event center anytime before 9:30 p.m. each night. Each camper will get a rules sheet when they check-in. The most important part is to TAKE YOUR TRASH WITH YOU!!! Persimmon Ridge doesn't have a commercial trash service since COVID-19 so you are responsible for packing out your garbage!! Each camper will receive a large trash bag as they check-in. Pack it up and take it with you! Camping quiet hours start at 10:00 p.m. each night. Please be respectful of other campers and their potential very early tee times!

Event Center:
The Event Center will be open each day from 7:30 a.m.-9:30 p.m. You are welcome to purchase discs, use the restroom, buy drinks and snacks, ect. Please be respectful of everyone and clean up after yourself.

Water:
We still aren't allowed to put out communal water on the course due to COVID-19. EVERY PLAYER IS RESPONSIBLE FOR PROVIDING THEIR OWN WATER!!!! Bring more than you think you need!

MISC:
Tee times will be posted on Wednesday night around 8:30 p.m. That will be the last call for cash refunds. Once your tee time has been posted, there will be no more cash refunds. If you need to drop out, you will receive store credit as your refund.

Fishing will only be permitted in the evenings once all the cards are turned in. Catch and release only.

With all the rain we've had and with the impact of Hurricane Laura, we are behind on getting everything we wanted to get done. All 26 tee pads are poured. However, 3 of them didn't get properly finished are a little slick. Be careful on those! Most holes will have some excess concrete left on the sides. Just be aware that with all the trees that fell last week that we had to clean up and the small crew we had, we couldn't quite get all the finishing touches done.

I've attached a map as well as the OB sheet to this email. We will have one for every card but if you want one for yourself, feel free to print them off.

PLEASE let me know if you have any questions and we look forward to an awesome weekend.

THANKS!!!
