Bring Your Own Newbie (BYON)

October 18, 2017 @ 5:30 pm UTC-6

In the spirit of having fun and growing the AWESOME sport of disc golf- we are going to have a “Newbie” night!! This will be a 2-disc round played doubles style- COMBINED SCORE!!

RULES:
– 1 or BOTH players on a team must be “Newbies” which means they are new to the sport- having played less than 10 rounds and NO tournaments. (WE WILL TRY TO PARTNER AN EXPERIENCED PLAYER W EVERY NEWBIE)
– The round will be combined score.
– Experienced players- aid your partner (and other “newbies”) in throwing technique and decisions, and help teach proper disc golf etiquette along with standard rules.
– Also, make sure that your “Newbie” partner has a mini for marking lies, and 2 adequate discs for the rounds.
** if you have extra discs that you can bring to loan to new players that may not have discs- PLEASE BRING SOME!!

THE COURSE:
*** THESE RULES ARE IN EFFECT FOR EXPERIENCED PLAYERS ONLY ***
– Obstacles will be set up and in-play
– 2-meter rule is in effect
– Everything will be played PIN-SIDE
*** RULES FOR EVERYONE ***
– All concrete is OB
– All discs are played as they lie with stroke penalty as necessary
– NO climbing fences to retrieve discs- if a disc is lost the round must be completed with 1 disc

Check-in: 5:30pm
Entry: $10/team

ACE Pool: $1-$5 progressive per person (ACE pool will be paid out to the individual with the most ACES for the night- if no ACE is hit we will have a CTP contest for the NEWBIES ONLY for 50% of the ACE pot- the remaining 50% will be carried over to the next 2-disc league ACE pool.)

Here are the events that we are going to have awards/prizes for:
– Newbie rounds CTP
– Experienced players CTP
– Newbie hot round

We all have those friends that have seemed interested in playing, but for whatever reason they have never really gotten out. This is your chance to get them out for a FUN/LAID-BACK round with other people that are also learning (so it won’t be quite so intimidating for them).

*** ALSO- IF YOU ARE EITHER AN EXPERIENCED PLAYER OR A NEWBIE BUT DON’T HAVE SOMEONE TO BRING/COME WITH, AND YOU STILL WANT TO PARTICIPATE- CONTACT US AND WE CAN WORK SOMETHING OUT!!

We hope to see you all out there!!

PS- stick around afterwards for a fun glow round as well!!
