The Discraft Ace Race is coming to Sunset DGC in Gulf Breeze on Saturday October 20th 2012!

Posted Image


What is Ace Race?
It's a fun event that helps disc golf grow by introducing thousands of new players to the joys of the sport! Each participant gets a huge player pack of cool stuff, then everyone plays two rounds of disc golf, but instead of keeping score the only goal is to throw aces (also known as a hole-in-one)! Holes are shortened, and everyone is throwing the same disc: a brand new Discraft prototype disc that is easy to throw and developed just for the event. It's a blast!

Format:
Two rounds of 18 holes, one throw per hole per player.

Course layout:
Holes are generally between 180 and 250 feet (55 to 75 meters).

Rules of play:
Players are required to use the player package discs, and only these discs. If a disc is lost, the player has the option of using the second disc from the package. Only one throw per player per hole. All players should have their own scorecards and mark "A" for aces (a hole-in-one) and "M" for holes on which they hit metal. After all players in the group have thrown, discs are picked up and the group moves directly to the next tee. Players keep their scorecards for round two, using the next line on the card to record the round. The player with the most aces after 36 holes is declared the winner. In case of ties, the number of metal hits is used as a tie breaker. If a tie persists, a closest to the pin contest is then used to determine the event winner.

Entry Fee/Player Pack/Grand Prize:
-Each player will receive two 2012 prototype drivers, mini, sticker, premium water bottle and a pair of UV shades. All for only $25! Lunch included.
-Grand Prize for 2012 Discraft Ace Race: 8 new discs, tournament bag, super-color trophy buzz.

I updated the players list today. We send off the order on 10/5/12. Make sure you're in by then, as YOU MUST PRE-ORDER, or be left out. And nobody likes being left out of the fun.

Your $25 entry fee gets you more than $50 retail value of neat stuff + free lunch + a chance to win a new Discraft bag full of shiny new Discraft plastic. You can't beat it with a stick.

See you good frisbee flingin' folks on the course.

Peace on y'all,
Captain Panic

NEW CUTOFF DATE!!!

Due to unprecedented demand, the good folks at DISCRAFT have asked us to get in our order with as much lead time as possible. With that in mind, I am moving up the cutoff date to sign up for the Ace Race to October 1st.

Today is September 18th, which gives you just 13 days left to get signed up.

Please remember, YOU MUST PRE-ORDER for this event. We will have no extra packages available the day of the Ace Race.

You're either in by October 1st or you can't participate.

Please pass this info along to anyone you know that might be interested.

Thank you,
Matt D

They won't come in until a day or two before the Ace Race on 10/20. I can hold yours until you get back or, if you have someone you trust playing in our Ace Race, I can give it to them to hold for you. Just let me know. Have fun, Matt

Jason that would be awesome. If you could pick it up for me but unfortunately I won't be back from Orlando until Sunday night and then the Howler next weekend. But I'm sure Matt will be at Sunday Doubles and he could hold it for me.

Wow.. Murr is on a tear! Congrats Murr. I was wondering if ol Joser would show up, he has won that thing in the past. Glad to hear some aces were hit, seems like every year there are only a few aces.. Hopefully next year I will be able to come..
