About this tournament

This weekend's MINIS are CANCELLED at Heritage Park

As per Gov. Abbotts order of no gatherings of over 10 persons, we will not be hosting any minis this weekend.
We will mail all requested player packs and refund players thru paypal. We will hold the entry fee of any player who asked us to do so for the future reschedule.

We apologize for any inconvenience. The park will be open for recreational play, but please avoid congregating in groups of more than 10. We don't want to be the reason some public parks close.


EVENT POSTPONEMENT & REFUND ANNOUNCEMENT
Dear disc golfers of The Open,

As most of you are now aware the PDGA has cancelled all sanctioned events at least through the end of March. The Open at Belton & Temple 2020 will be rescheduled for a future date to be determined. We will be issuing refunds no later than Monday 3/23 in a batch. Here are your options for a refund; or to re-apply your entry fee:

PLEASE CHOOSE AN OPTION by EMAIL to [email redacted]
1.You may leave your entry in place and reserve your spot for the rescheduled date. If, when that date is determined, you find you cannot attend for any reason, you will receive your refund then. Action: Reply to this email that you choose to keep your spot in the event.

2. We will be at Heritage Park in Belton running a mini Saturday, and Sunday (3/21, 22) flex-time from 10:00 am - 1:00 pm. Formats: Saturday BYOP $30 dubs; Sunday $10 divisional singles, and, depending on interest, PYMWYMI $100 Pro singles. Whether or not you play in the mini, you may receive your refund and / or player pack on site during those specified times. Yes, we took a money hit with the postponement, so we really appreciate anyone who gets refunded by player pack along with partial refund. Action: Show up at Heritage Park any of the specified times and see Neal or Jim.

3. You may request a partial refund which will be batch processed thru PayPal on Monday 3/23. Any sponsorship amounts you are willing to donate will help with our unrecoverable costs. Action: Reply to this email with amount donated. Examples; for Pros: "refund $140 / donate $25”; for AMS, “please ship my player pack and send a partial refund of entry fee." All donors names (not amounts) will be listed in the caddy guide at the rescheduled event.

4. If you prefer a 100% net entry fee refund they will be batch processed thru PayPal by Monday 3/23. Action: No action needed. If you do not choose one of the above options this is the default.

There will be no organized activity by The Open DGC at Lions Park this weekend.

Look for The Open to be rescheduled later in the year and we thank all of you in advance for your contributions and patience.

And finally, a huge thank you to Discraft and all of our sponsors. We shall meet again. The Open at Belton & Temple will return. Stay healthy, be happy, and make the most of your newly found free time.
