Special Tourny

Aloha all you frolfers out in cyberspace.  I would like to announce the terms and conditions of this month's special tournament.  

First off the tourny will be held at my house on what has been dubbed the "Joey Memorial Course".  It is a par 2 putter course that will be slightly modified down to 18 holes.   As it is a short par 2 course, we will play 3 rounds starting at 1:00 on Sunday May 17th.  There is no rules for discs other than PDGA approved plastic (I don't know if we ever set that for our regular sunday, so if it flies on the mendo course, it flies here).  This will be a doubles tournament where players come with partners.  If someone does not have a partner we will try to make last minute teams on the day of.  If there is an odd number, the single will play "California rules", which means they can choose one shot to take twice.  This means they do not get to shoot every shot on the course twice.  Please try to find a partner as this would be a last resort scenario.  Handicaps will apply.  Each team will average their handis and apply the .8 equalizer to try and create the most fair leveler.  The team with the lowest score after 3 rounds will be crowned special tourny champions.  Those two players will then play sudden-death from hole one to see who gets to keep the official trophy.  

Buy in will be the standard $5 per player but as we do not add our ace pot to the special tourney, there will be an optional $5 ace pool that will be reimbursed if there are no aces.  There are some short aceable holes, so instead of CTP prizes, if you would like to bring a prize we will have ace prizes.  The person who donates the prize can set the rules for winning; so if anyone has fun ideas for ways to hand them out (i.e. worst shot, most chained out ace runs, longest putt... )post them in the comments and we can organize it on the sunday.  

If you have a basket, post it on the comments so I can tally exactly how many we have.  As the course is set up now, we will need 10 plus the 2 I have here.  Maybe we could meet earlier to set up the course and allow folks to learn the layout and warm-up.  I will have a cooler with ice, so bring beverages and I thought we could bring food to get us through the day.  I will have some charcoal if we want to BBQ.  

Directions to my house.  North on Hwy 1 past cleone.  When you pass the sign for Inglenook, then the Grange on your left you are almost there.  After the big red barn house on your right, I am on the next block, Rosa Ln.  The road is on the right but the sign is on the left.  Make a right on Rosa and bear right at the fork.  I am the first house on the right, 26701 the blue house and you'll see my white toyota out front.  Try and carpool as there is not a huge amount of space to park cars.  

This is my home so lets all try and be respectful.  There will be trash and recycling cans on the course.  Please put butts in the trash cans.  I am glad to have you all come out and visit.  If you want to contact me, 964-2566 and I'll see you here on the 17th.
