  • SpAce Race 2013 @ Horning's Hideout: Round #1! April 13th, 2013

    EVENT INFO:
    SpAce Race Round 1 is an ace run held at Horning's Hideout Highlands course. For an ace run you throw from the tee trying to make a hole in one with no further throws to complete the hole. 2 rounds played consecutively, 3 throws from the tee per hole per player . Bring your own discs to throw, with holes ranging from 100 feet to 270 feet. Bring extras in case of a lost disc. 8:30 - 9:15 a.m. registration/warm-up, 9:30 a.m. tee off. 20$ buy-in gives you a premium disc of your choice (Lat64, Dynamic or Westside), 1$ for the Double Ace pot, and 3$ for the prize pool. Cash only, pay at event. 72 players max for the event (18 groups of 4).

    Scoring will be 5 points for an ace, 2 points for metal, 3 points for a solid chain smash that also hits pole and kicks out.

    Play with your own group of up to 4 players . Registered groups smaller than 4 players and individuals will be randomly assigned to foursomes.

    Horning's Hideout has a 4$ day use fee (going up from 3$ April 1st). You can also buy prorated annual passes, which are a great value. Horning's has three great eighteen hole courses, so you can always spend the rest of the afternoon playing the other courses after the event.

    Snacks and coffee are available for sale from Horning's on the weekend. Bring your own more substantial fare.

    REGISTRATION INFO:
    To pre-register, "Like" the Portland Mobile Disc Lab page here: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Portl...274751?fref=ts
    Then under "Events" click the "Join" button for the "SpAce Race 2013 @ Horning's Hideout: Round #1" event. Once you know the names of everyone who will be in your group (2 to 4 players) and they have joined the event, send me a message with that information. If you have a non-internet using member of your group who is planning on playing send me a message with their name.

    The tournament is also listed at DiscGolfScene here: http://www.discgolfscene.com/tournam...ideout_Round_1

    If you have a change of plans and are unable to attend the event after pre-registering, let me know so we can keep an accurate projection of participants.

    SERIES INFO:
    SpAce Race 2013 will consist of 8 monthly ace run tournaments held at Horning's Hideout Highlands course. The Highlands course is great for ace runs as almost every hole is less than 200 feet. We will be playing from the regular tee boxes for the first round, but may create a safari layout for a future round.

    The day of the tournament each month will not always be the 2nd Saturday of the month (like this first event). We will try and schedule each month's round 2 to 4 weeks ahead of time, fitting it in around pre-existing events, chiefly Disc Golf or Die special Saturday events and any of the large Portland area annual events, as well as Horning's Hideout events.

    The only way to guarantee a spot for the final SpAce Race round is to attend this first round and then the majority of the subsequent rounds. Registration priority will be given according to attendance -- as long as you're in the first round you're guaranteed registration priority for the second round, etc.

    Each monthly round of the SpAce Race will not necessarily be a 20$ buy-in involving a disc purchase, we'll try to mix things up with a unique twist or two each month.

    PRIZE INFO:
    For round 1, Portland Mobile Disc Lab will add 5 discs minimum to the prize pool, plus 10% gross of all pre-tournament merchandise sales will be kicked into the prize pool! Insta-win a new putter with an ace on hole #1! There will be two additional secret scoring categories (revealed pre-tee off) with prizes that don't involve hitting an ace or metal! Merchandise sales after the tournament begins will have 10% of the gross go to the following month's round prize pool.

    Prizes will be given to the highest individual scores in each series round. We'll be aiming to give out prizes to around the top 20% each event, spreading it out some instead of a very top heavy 1st place prize. There will also be an overall series winner for the individual with the highest point total counting their 6 best rounds (allowing for one missed event or throw out your worst score if you've attended all 8 rounds), as well as 2nd and 3rd place series runner-ups. A small portion of each round's prize pool will be saved for the series' winners.

    Portland Mobile Disc Lab will be kicking in 20$ to the Double Ace pot to go along with the 1$ from each player's entry fee. The Double Ace pot is won when 2+ aces are made by a group on the same hole. If only one group hits the Double Ace pot once in a series round, 10% of the pot will go to each non-acing member of the group, with the rest divided evenly among the acers or to the individual who alone made 2+ aces. If there are multiple Double Pot ace holes in a series round, the pot will be divided according to number of aces on the double ace holes, with none going to non-ace members of the groups. If the Double Ace pot is not won in a monthly round it will carry over to the next monthly round. If there are no Double Ace pot winners in the final round, the pot will be divided equally according to aces in the final round. The Double Ace pot will be difficult to win -- it very well might be the entire Double Ace pot up for grabs for single aces in the series' final round in November!

      The prize info has been updated with the following paragraph:

      Prizes will be given to the highest individual scores in each series round. We'll be aiming to give out prizes to around the top 20% each event, spreading it out some instead of a very top heavy 1st place prize. There will also be an overall series winner for the individual with the highest point total counting their 7 best rounds (allowing for one missed event or throw out your worst score if you've attended all 8 rounds), as well as 2nd and 3rd place series runner-ups. A small portion of each round's prize pool will be saved for the series' winners.

        Changed the series top 3 winners according to 6 best rounds instead of 7. You can still play all 8 and throw out your worst 2 rounds.

            Tee shirt designs I'm thinking of having printed up soon to have at the first round of the SpAce Race and at the DGOD Dynamic Disc 2 Disc Challenge on April 27th where I'll be sponsoring/vending. Wouldya' wear one? Looking for opinions before I get them made. Thanks.

              47 preregistered, so 20+ spots still available.

              Final Notes for SpAce Race Round 1

              Cash only as Horning's is in the hills and there is no cell service for credit card swiping.

              Remember that Horning's Hideout has a 4$ per person day use fee. "Rest of Year" passes are available for 50$.

              The forecast is for scattered showers, so don't forget your rain gear and towels.

              There is a brand new small charcoal grill installed next to the first tee pad of the Canyon Course (next to parking lot) for use by disc golfers only! Feel free to bring a cooler and cook up a lunch when we're done. Horning's is a bring your own beer private property as well.

              We'll have a large selection of Latitude 64, Dynamic and Westside discs to choose from for your buy in. All discs there will also be for sale, as well as some new tee shirts going for 12$. Your buy in includes one premium disc; however you can get two base plastic discs (usually putters) or one base plastic disc and a tee shirt for an extra 4$ instead of the premium plastic disc.

              There will be a shorter tee pad option for holes #5 and #6, but they will still be challenging shots because of large trees guarding the basket.

              Scoring for the cash prizes will be 2 points for any metal hit, and 5 points for an ace. I've decided to leave off the "3 points for a chain smash that doesn't stay in" to keep it simpler. Any cash prizes awarded can be redeemed for 125% of their value as scrip for discs and shirts. You can convert just a part or all of a cash prize to scrip. There will be two flat tiers of payouts, with an extra amount going to the overall most points winner and a tee shirt for the player with the most aces, which could very well be the same player. All tie-breakers will be determined by a closest to the pin throw on hole #1.

              There are two other separate scoring categories for disc and shirt prizes. They have their own boxes on the scorecard. A Constellation point is earned when two of your discs end up on the ground less than one discs' distance away from each other. 5 Constellation points are earned if all 3 of your throws end up on the ground less than one discs' distance from each other. A Space Invader point is earned when any part of your disc ends up on top of another player's disc. If a throw ends up on top of another one of your own discs that is a Constellation point, not a Space Invader point. 1st place in Constellation points wins a premium disc, 2nd place a shirt. 1st place in Space Invader points wins a tee shirt, 2nd place a base plastic disc. All tie-breakers will be determined by a closest to the pin throw on hole #1.

              Prize distribution will happen very soon after the final scorecards are in. Everything is automated in a spreadsheet so we can wrap up as soon as possible. 10% of the cash prize pool (not including the 1$ going to the double ace pot) will be held in reserve for the final SpAce Race series winners.

              Thanks again for supporting Portland Mobile Disc Lab and the SpAce Race series. Your involvement will help to make this a great series whether you plan on attending sporadically or every monthly event.

                Thanks to everyone who came out and made SpAce Race Round #1 a fun tournament for all! I know there were at least 2 or 3 players who made their first aces ever, which is great.

                Over all winner was Mateo Hylton with one ace and 19 points total. He works with metal, in more ways than one!

                The rest of the leader board is as follows:

                15 points -- Mat Owens (one ace)
                13 points -- Christ Cordova (one ace)
                13 points -- Zane Wilson (one ace)
                12 points -- Vince Epker
                11 points -- Andrew Evey (one ace)
                11 points -- Sean Chapman (one ace)
                8 points -- Steven Fodor
                8 points -- Tyler Olsen

                Constellation Prize 1st place -- Doug Treish 6 points (after making a full constellation on hole #12, good for 5 points, the only one of the day). 2nd place -- Zane Wilson 2 points

                Space Invaders 1st place -- Erik Hayworth 4 points. 2nd place Geoffrey Zeller 2 points

                The average score for all participants was 4.8.

                The double ace pot came close to a few times, including two chain outs that would've won it! The pot should be 100+ for next round.

                The next round is tentatively scheduled for May 11th -- there will be a firm date set before next weekend.
