    Great Tournament

    I played in this event last year and it was a great tournament. The temporary layout for the open divisions is very difficult with shots that will challenge the most experienced players. The am's are looked after too, with almost every hole having an am pad.

    The tournament was well organized and ran smoothly. The free Starbucks coffee was a nice touch too.

    Get your passports and I'll see you there.

        I have now played 12 courses in and around Vancouver and although the courses are fairly short, the temp courses are a lot of fun. The locals are great too. If I could, I would go with you Dan.

        You are never really playing an opponent. You are playing yourself, your own highest standards, and when you reach your limits, that is real joy.

              Each CFR disc comes with a Sponsor Rewards Program certificate, which you can use to enter Innova Gear Drawings.
              The Cobras do not come with this certificate.


              One lucky winner will receive the Sponsor's Exemption to this years United States Disc Golf Championship in Rock Hill, SC.

              We also have, with just an Innova Swoosh stamp:

              Glow Champion Cobra 170g-180g

              The price per disc is $18.00, or two for $32.

              We also have 2010 Burnaby Open t-shirts available for $10 each. (Sizes: L, XL, 2XL) These are Black, Hanes Tag-less Tees.

              Supply is limited, and 23 destroyers, 15 firebirds, 18 leopards, and 18 cobras have already been spoken for, so reserve your CFR discs soon.

                Practice Round this Saturday

                If you're not sure if you want to come to the tournament, come check out the course this Saturday, Feb 12th.

                We'll be meeting at the parking lot visible from Wedgewood St. at 1st St., Burnaby:


                It will be set up by 10:30am, when there will be singles play.

                Then at 1:30pm we'll be doing a random flip doubles for $7 a head.

                This is the round that will be played this Saturday, and the Saturday morning of the 2011 Burnaby Open:
                For reference: Hole 18a is 584', and the course length is about 6880'.

                If you can't make it this weekend, I'm planning on setting it up again either Feb 19th or March 12th. I'll keep you all in the loop.

                Over 1/4 of the CFR Discs are reserved, talk soon if you want some cool glow plastic with this logo:

                As always feel free to e-mail me with questions: bburbee@telus.net

                Hope to see you there,

                      Fast Approaching

                      Hello All,

                      Less than 2 weeks away!

                      The CFR Discs are here, 74 out of 100 are gone.
                      There are 19 2011 Burnaby Open stamped discs (2 Destroyers, 10 Firebirds, 7 Leopards), and 7 Cobras (Innova Stamp).

                      If you want one, tell me and I'll hang on to it until we can meet or I'll send it to you.

                      bburbee@telus.net to reserve your discs.

                      The Hilton deal seems pretty good, but if you're looking for something cheaper and closer to the course (less than 10 min walk to tourney central)
                      Check out the Happy Day Inn:


                      2 nights for under $120 Canadian. Includes breakfast. Only 7 rooms left, but free cancellation up to two days before.
