Good evening,

First and foremost, please take a moment to fill out this survey if you stayed in a hotel or traveled in town in any capacity. This helps Pensacola Sports track things and helps future events. Please note everyone in your party if possible.

I just withdrew due to a death in the family, if I can get my money back that would be great, if not, then you can give my player pack to Holden Tate for me

Ryan Vann   October 8, 2022 at 3:27pm

Jeff, sorry to hear. He can pick up your pack if he has not done so already.

Ryan Vann    October 8, 2022 at 1:10am

Much of this is the same info sent before, but I do have a few updates here at the top.

1. Updated Caddy book was sent. I had a 19th hole listed on the original, and we are only playing 18.

2. Important update for Pool C At Gator links in the morning.
I was informed about a cross country meet a week ago. This is a specific PSC meet, therefore Disc Golf takes the 2nd priority. This was the reason we bumped tee off to 930.
It is HIGHLY encouraged that players warm up at Blackwater in the ... more

Thanks buddy just to be clear if there is a MP40 trophy I'd like it only if I can walk away with the MPO one as well. ????

Ryan Vann   October 7, 2022 at 8:19pm

We do not do trophies if only 1 person is signed up

Daniel Harrington    October 4, 2022 at 8:24pm

Are there any slots to switch to ma4?

Ryan Vann   October 6, 2022 at 2:12am


Phoebe Isaacs    October 3, 2022 at 11:12pm

Ryan, I need to switch to players pack only. Not gonna be in town, want to open my spot. Just me! Will is still playing.

Ryan Vann   October 4, 2022 at 2:33am

Got you down!

JOHNATHAN KING    October 3, 2022 at 4:53pm

Ryan - just submitted withdrawal request - Dr is making me stay in walking boot for at least 2 more weeks from foot surgery I had 6 weeks ago - very sorry hate to miss this and lumberjack as well as these are some of favorites and you actually set up for MA70 - if this is too late and I do not fit criteria for withdrawal let me know and I will come by shop and get my player pack - hopefully someone can get on off the waiting list - thanks - John

Ryan Vann   October 3, 2022 at 5:44pm

I will let you know! Sorry to hear

Christian Torres    October 3, 2022 at 2:15pm

This is my 2nd tournament and I forgot to put novice

Ryan Vann   October 3, 2022 at 5:45pm


Christian Torres    October 3, 2022 at 2:13pm

Can I get switched from MA2 to MA4 please


Joshua McGinnis    October 3, 2022 at 11:00am

I am going to have to drop from the tournament.

Ryan Vann   October 3, 2022 at 5:47pm

Feel free to submit for a refund and I will monitor whether we get anyone on the waitlist or not. If we do not, you would get a players pack or partial refund depending on your preference

Kevin M. Schopmeyer    October 2, 2022 at 3:10am


Keith Tate    October 1, 2022 at 6:55pm

My whole family is traveling for the tournament. We only have one car & we are all playing. Is is possible to put us all at the same course together? (Keith Tate MA4, Holden Tate MA3, Amy Tate FA4, Brody Tate MJ15). Also, we don't have an adult to caddie for Brody. If possible, we would like to get him on a card with one of us for at least the first round. If not, I understand. Thanks.

Keith, the morning part will be pretty simple. We don’t tee until 930 now.

Ryan Vann   October 2, 2022 at 12:22pm

Not sure if Anyone else with you drives. But that would make it easier for in between rounds if Amy does. Once you go to the other course( and pickup food on the way) then they take the car to their course.

Keith Tate   October 2, 2022 at 1:24pm

thanks. I think we have it figured out. We are looking forward to this weekend.

Nathan Fontenot    September 30, 2022 at 5:24pm

I'm only 863 rated, you can fit me wherever.

Ryan Vann   October 2, 2022 at 1:29am

I will add you in MA3 for now. That pool has some spots.

Nathan Fontenot    September 30, 2022 at 2:15pm

Any MA40 spots?


Jessica Cooper    September 29, 2022 at 7:45pm

Do we know yet if it will be a shotgun start? Also, will cards be randomized or can you play on the same card as anyone set to play your same course at the same time?


Ryan Vann    September 29, 2022 at 3:27pm

We are 9 days out! Be sure to follow this page or the Disc Golf Scene comments for updates. I’ll send out an email mid next week.
A couple of important things.
1. Refunds - within 14 days of the event, your refund is dependent on whether there is a waitlist person in your pool to fill your spot. If there is not, you may be impacted. If you cannot play and would prefer a player pack, please let me know via email or on disc golf scene.
2. Big thanks to Whale Sacs for their shirt sponsorsh ... more

Cindy Varner   October 6, 2022 at 12:17pm

Any RV campgrounds? I always like to let them know that we are here for a local disc golf tournament.

Jessica Cooper    September 26, 2022 at 8:24pm

This may be a dumb question and I apologize, but what does it mean when names appear in bold under players registered for the event?

Woods McCue   September 26, 2022 at 8:35pm

I think it just shows that they have a dg scene account.

Dustin Garner    September 13, 2022 at 7:18pm

I just rated out of intermediate. Will you be able to get me into advanced?
