      I could be wrong but I am pretty sure it will be the same as the previous two NAACS: All short for the two rounds on Saturday and all long for the final round on Sunday.

        Pier Park will be closed Saturday and Sunday to the general public in order to make way for the Northwest's largest amateur ONLY disc golf tournament. Feel free to come out and watch if you haven't already signed up to play. It should be a blast.

        The Player's Packet is almost complete. It includes, one Innova, one Discraft, and one Latitude disc. A commorative glass, a pair of NAAC socks, a Sport-Tek® - Tricolor Shoulder Micropique Sport-Wick® Polo shirt, and a mini disc bottle opener.

        This year, in addition to the real life tournament, we're also running a fantasy NAAC tournament. We've partnered with PlayFantasyDiscGolf.com to run a separate fantasy sports based event. Participation is free and prizes will be awarded during the award ceremony at the NAAC. To register for your free account and join the tournament, go to www.playfantasydiscgolf.com. Register your account and then click "Leagues" and "Find a League". Then enter the invitation code, "BA3C69OC". First place will get an Innova Traveler basket so make sure you join the fun!

        You don't have to be a player in the event but you do have to be present at the awards ceremony to win!

          Disc Golf's 2012 Next Adventure Amateur Championship in Portland this Weekend

          Posted by KC Dermody in Sports News | 0 comments
          The 2012 Next Adventure Amateur Championship will take place this weekend, over August 25-26, in Portland at the Pier Park Disc Golf Course. Firefly Disc Golf is helping to not only provide a valuable service to the disc golf community, but to promote the great sport of disc golf in a number of different ways including putting on some of the best tournaments in the region.
          This event was added to the PDGA Supertour schedule, making the NAAC one of four events in the Pacific Northwest at that level. This PDGA sanctioned A-tier event has been one of the most talked about disc golf tournaments in the area, and this year’s will include 144 players, selling out nearly two months in advance.
          For those who weren’t able to register in time, or who just have an interest in disc golf, this will be an excellent event just to come find out what the sport is all about, and possibly pick up some tips by watching some of the more experienced disc golfers out on the course.
          According to the DGR site, Pier Park offers a beautiful course in the city park with “200 foot Douglas Firs that come into play on almost every hole.” This is a well-maintained, challenging course with a wide variety of holes to keep players entertained.
          The park itself is located in the St. Johns neighborhood of Portland and includes a playground, water fountain and splash area, tennis courts, pool and even a skate park.
          The tournament will kick off with Pool B players teeing off at 8 a.m. for round one, with Pool A players teeing off at 11 a.m. on Saturday. Sunday’s Final Round for Pool A will begin at 9 a.m., with the Final Round for Pool B at noon. The Final 9 will take place at 3:30 p.m. with the top four Advanced players followed by dinner and a concert at 5 p.m., and finally an Awards ceremony at 6 p.m. followed by a Raffle at 6:30 p.m.
          Come out and join the fun this weekend at Pier Park!

              Is the schedule found here still accurate?
              “I believe I can hit 18 greens, hit every fairway, you know — Vision 54, which means you birdie every hole, that’s in the back of my mind. I want to putt better, chip better. That day when I hit 18 greens and one putt, I’ll know I’m a complete golfer. Will that ever happen? I’m not sure, but it’s possible. The 54 vision is always in the back of my mind.”

                              I live out highway 30 in Columbia City and it barely affected my commute last year. There isn't much traffic that early in the morning on a weekday. I just get in the far lane to give them space and traffic runs pretty smoothly. It was smooth even this morning when I was coming to work.
