    Another Festivus miricle!

    "Although the original Festivus took place in February 1966, as a celebration of the elder O'Keefe's first date with his future wife, Deborah,[1] it is now celebrated on December 23, as depicted on the December 18, 1997 Seinfeld episode, "The Strike".[2] According to O'Keefe, the name Festivus "just popped into my head."[1]"

    So actually, the Festivus Disc Golf Tournament is closer to the original date of Festivus as it was intended by its creator. The Dec. 23rd date is a shamockery, bastardized by a sitcom!

      Greg, is there still room? I intend to send my registration on Monday.

        Yes, send in your registrations next week to ensure a spot as it is filling up. After I get the list updated I will post the current registration list later tonight. Factoring people that have contacted me this week and are sending their registrations in, there should be about 20 spaces remaining open.

        Discs Innova Star Katanas, Eco Wraiths and Valkyries have been ordered. Umbrellas have been ordered with Calapooia/Festivus logos. And trophies are now ordered through John Kinder in Bend, who will be rounding up a few more Rebels this weekend to get their registrations in.

                      I expect the folks that contacted me and already gave their name to follow through with payment to secure their spot. Some spots are held for tournament sponsors, and club members that are bringing food etc. for participants that I have not gotten around to collecting entry fees from.

                      I don't know who folks are by their NWDG ID's.

                      If you want on the wait list send me a private message to discgolfgreg@yahoo.com with your name and division of preference. I'm asking the first few on the wait list to mail me their registration check too. I won't cash it until I confirm you are in.

                      Thanks,

                      Greg Johnson

                        Is it too late to sign up for advanced?

                        I tried on the site and it was somewhat confusing...

                        Thanks,

                          It's full and there never was a website for registrations to allow a more equal opportunity to get registered. I can add names to the wait list but the outlook is not good as I have 8 names already. I need name and division of preference for additions to the wait list.

                          Greg

I think when a tournament reaches it's tenth year it can probably be called whatever the TD wants to call it. Especially when the lunch is delicious and free and a keg of free beer shows up. But that's just the opinion of one person who doesn't actually take holidays popularized by television shows too seriously.
                            There is a keg of free beer and its at adair.....i am so there!!!

                                Getting pretty excited to play in this well-regarded event, never having played in one before.

                                And so I'm interested in some of the added and tweaked holes in previous Festivi.

                                Dion has always added some fun twists to Adair, so I was wondering if anyone wanted to post any descriptions/reviews of the added/tweaked holes that Greg has used/designed before.

                                I know that past performance is no guarantee of future results, but it's fun to imagine what we may encounter this Saturday morning.

                                (Greg, I don't expect you to have to post anything. I know you are super busy.)

                                But some of the other typists on this board may want to share some thoughts.

                                Thanks.
