    NAAC 2013 - Aug 24th & 25th

    The registration for The 2013 Next Adventure Amateur Championship will be opening this Saturday, June 1st, at 6:00pm.

    We are still ironing out a lot of details, but rest assured that the event will be run on the same level as it has been in past years. the only major change is that we are moving the event to Blue Lake for this year.

    Registration is online only, and can be found at:

    NAAC GOLD (A-Tier) - MA1 & FA1:
    http://www.4discgolf.com/NAAC_GOLD

    NAAC SILVER (B-Tier) - All other divisions:
    http://www.4discgolf.com/NAAC_SILVER

    If you have any questions, the quickest and preferred way to get them answered is by emailing us at "tds |at| fireflydiscgolf.com".

    Thanks,
    Ryan

    I lost an orange pro Destroyer in the schule between 12 and 13. About 250' down the fairway from 13's teepad. My number is on it! I got a beer and a high five to whoever finds it.

    Is the drop zone on hole 2 mandatory? Or is it only played when you miss the mando before you cross OB? Or maybe neither, struggling to phrase that clearly.

    Hole Assignments are posted. These are final. As mentioned earlier, there is no player's meeting for Gold Flight Round 1. You can go straight out to your hole and we're going to try to start on time with an 8am tee-off. If that proves impossible, we'll start as soon as possible thereafter.

    The PDGA Links have been updated with the complete list of players as we have it now.

    GOLD: http://www.pdga.com/tournament_results/102050/919399388
    SILVER: http://www.pdga.com/tournament_results/105295/809273559

    We have over 40 participants in the Fantasy Challenge: If you haven't signed up, go do it now. We'll post the final results from the Fantasy, so even if you can't be present to win, you'll at least have bragging rights that you picked the right "team", you just won't get a prize unless you are there.

    The course is 98% ready. We just need to post the tee signs, and the arborist from Metro's park staff is trying to remove the bee hive as I type this. Tee pads are down, baskets are in position for Saturday's round. 10M circles have been painted on most holes, drop zones are painted. If you haven't played the course in this configuration yet, you should really give it a try TODAY.

    Ladies Birdie Bonus
    Steve and I decided we would do a birdie bonus for the ladies. Any female golfer who gets cards a 2 on a par 3, or a 3 on a par 4 will receive a $25 scrip bonus. Multiples are allowed. For instance, if Christina gets 4 birdies throughout the event, she walks off with a $100 bonus check in scrip.

    SWEET!!! You guys rock! Come on ladies!

    Thanks to you all as well. The event is stacking up to be simply awesome as if it wasn't already.

    We're going to send out another email tomorrow, but here are a couple more notes:

    Ace Pot
    The ace pot this year will be $1,500. As always, that $1500 is in Next Adventure Scrip. More specific rules will be posted at TC. This money is not coming from your entry fees, it graciously fronted by Next Adventure and Bryan Knudsen. Thank them for their insane generosity if you hit an ace!

    Scrip
    Scrip will be redeemed through Next Adventure and Next Adventure ONLY. There will be no on-site scrip redemption. Scrip redemption is one of the main reasons that Next Adventure can afford to go so overboard on the NAAC. After the awards ceremony, scrip certificates for payout will be handed out. You will be able to redeem the scrip the following morning at the store.

    Ladies Birdie Bonus
    Steve and I decided we would do a birdie bonus for the ladies. Any female golfer who gets cards a 2 on a par 3, or a 3 on a par 4 will receive a $25 scrip bonus. Multiples are allowed. For instance, if Christina gets 4 birdies throughout the event, she walks off with a $100 bonus check in scrip.

    Eagle Bonus
    Anyone carding a 2 on a par 4 will receive an Eagle Bonus. The Eagle bonus is worth $50! Everyone playing is eligible for the Eagle Bonus. Again, multiples are allowed. If Danny gets 3 eagles, he walks off with $150 in scrip. Ace pot trumps the Eagle bonus. So if you card a 1 on a par 3, you'll get the ace pot, but not the $50 Eagle bonus.


    PLEASE be aware that these extras are not coming out of your entry fee! The money for these bonuses, your dinner Sunday night, the many kegs of beer, the park rental, and much, much more is being provided by Next Adventure directly. Bryan Knudsen will be in the park on Saturday and Sunday hanging out, be sure to thank him for everything!


    Also, Registration is officially and entirely closed for the 2013 NAAC. We will not be taking any day-of registrations, period. Thank you in advance for your understand on the subject.

    Brilliant. Thank you for all you do, Firefly!

    We know but we are still going to do our best to start on time. Metro is going to try to get the gate open by 7:15 with two people at the pay station to move people through as quickly as possible. But they aren't going to guarantee it. We will also be publishing the starting holes on Friday so players can skip tournament central completely and go directly to their starting hole. There is no player's meeting prior to the first round Saturday. We will be handing out Player's Guides at Tournament Central and/or at the pay station.

    If you are NOT on the mailing list for updates for the weekend you can add your name and e-mail address to our list at this web page: http://eepurl.com/D11jT
