Stumptown Disc Golf
2012 Oregon Disc Golf Championships
Sept 15th & 16th
3 rounds of 18 holes at Trojan Disc Golf Course
This PDGA sanctioned B-Tier invitation only event is designed to deliver the USDGC experience to the very best players in Oregon. In order to crown 4 Oregon State Champions, we will again be setting up Trojan Disc Golf Course in its most challenging layout ever. If you have any doubts about the difficulty of this course just ask someone who played the event last year. This course is no joke.
Divisions & Number of Players
76 total players
32 Open Men, 6 Open Women, 32 Advanced Men, 6 Advanced Women
Invitations will be awarded to the top eligible finishers in each division based on their overall score for that weekend. Players can only qualify once and invitations are non-transferable. In the event of a tie, I will give a spot to both players and remove one spot from a later qualifying event.
This is an “opt-in” event. To be eligible to qualify for the ORDGC players will need to pay $10 prior to the start of the first round of play at each qualifying event for their scores for that weekend to count. This $10 is NOT included in any entry fee for any of the above listed events. This is an entirely separate event and fee.
I hope to have online registration up before too long, and I will update this announcement once that happens.
While I may add additional events, the following events will serve as qualifiers for the 2012 ORDGC: (Number in parenthesis indicates the number of available invites)
Disc-Go-Ball - (MPO-3, FPO-1, MA1-3, FA1-1)
Great Northwest Open - (MPO-4, FPO-1, MA1-4, FA1-1)
Rose City Open - (MPO-4, FPO-1, MA1-4, FA1-1)
Beaver State Fling
The number of invitations given away at each qualifier will vary depending on the number of players in that event, but as a general rule, each event will award the following number of invitations:
Open Men - 4, Open Women - 1, Advanced Men - 4, Advanced Women – 1. The only exceptions will be if a division fills early due to ties etc.
Masters players are welcome to play in the ORDGC, but there will be no age based divisions. Masters will be eligible for invitations provided they play the same course at the same time as their non-protected division. For example: a Pro Master can qualify based on his score IF he played the same course at the same time as Open players. I will be asking TDs to make accommodations for this, but ultimately it will be up to them. Pro Masters are obviously welcome to try to qualify by playing in the Open division.
I will have the course ready for practice rounds mid-morning on Friday, Sept 14th.
On both days we will have our players meeting at 8:30AM and should be teeing off around 9:00am.
I am well aware some people do not agree with how I have chosen to structure this event. Hopefully, they will respect me and the decisions I have made enough to keep their bashing to a minimum. With that said, I WILL be moderating this thread to keep things civil. After all of the hate mail I have received regarding the BSF Am Lottery my patience is pretty thin at the moment.
