  • Battle At The Barracks Ft. Vancouver April 10

    Battle at the Barracks II

    It’s that time of year again. Is everyone ready to get their feet wet for our second opportunity to play at Fort Vancouver National Park? Last year went off without a hitch. We had a pretty good turnout, and the park service had nothing but good things to say about us. So, here we are again! After everyone’s input I have decided to change things up a bit this year.

    Pool A- All pro divisions including advanced Ams
    Pool B- All other Amateur divisions

    We will be playing two rounds for each division. Pool B will start in the morning, and Pool A will start when Pool B finishes their first round. This will go on into the afternoon with the course continuing to rotate between Pools. There will be room for 40 players in each pool. This will be singles only, for each division. Like last year we will have ctp’s and long drive prizes. We will be serving lunch again this year and I am happy to have Disc Golf Depot doing the script for the ams. Also, if the weather is good we will have a long drive competition at the end of the tourney. It will be by division only $1 a throw. (Unless you want to throw against the big arms and test out your distance)

    This again will be a “fundraiser” tournament. The tournament is scheduled for Sunday April 10th. The money will be going to help some local disc golfers with there expenses in traveling to Michigan for the 2011 ASADGC. There will be payouts, lunch and prizes.

    World Champion Dave Feldberg will be playing and putting on a clinic at the end of the tournament. There will be no-charge for the clinic, however we will be taking donations of any kind to help out Dave and his time spent teaching.

    Schedule:

    7:30-800 Player check in for Pool B
    8:15 Player’s meeting (Pool B)
    8:30 Tee off (Pool B 1st round)
    9:30-10:00 Player check in for Pool A
    10:15 Player’s meeting (Pool A)
    10:30 Tee off (Pool A 1st round)
    12:00 Player’s meeting (Pool B)
    12:15 Tee off (Pool B 2nd round)
    1:45 Player’s meeting (Pool A)
    2:00 Tee off (Pool A 2nd round)
    4:00-5:00 Dave Feldberg clinic
    5:00-5:30 Long Drive competition and Awards

    This tournament will be pre-registration only. The cost of the tourney is $25.00 per player. All divisions must have at least 3 players. Sign-up’s are located on www.northwestsignup.com. You can find a map of where the park is located here http://www.nps.gov/fova/planyourvisi...d/FOVAmap1.pdf See you at the park!!

          So the course is going to be 12 holes. Most of them are decent lengths including a long 1000' hole. Last year we had 10 holes with 3 rounds and some doubles mixed in. This year will be two rounds of singles with a twelve hole layout. There is a variety of shots including some low ceiling and mando's. This year we will have a few more ob's and an island shot with drop zone. There is also some elevation change and some sweet downhill hyzer shots. The signups will be on www.northwestsignup.com. I was informed that the regisration will be up and running by the 12th. There will be an optional $2.00 ace pot. This is a temp course and we may not have tee-pads. It might be like last year with cones marking the natural tee-pad area. If anyone knows of where we could get tee-pads to use for the event, I would be greatful. If anyone has old large chunks of carpet that we could use, that might be better than rubber mats but will take what we can get. The course is partially wooded but mostly open areas. This course will be beginner friendly but I am definately adding some difficulty this year. Hope you all can make it!!! Thanks JB

                  Was a fun time last year, Jason. Count me in. Let me know if you need any help with anything.

                  ďI believe I can hit 18 greens, hit every fairway, you know ó Vision 54, which means you birdie every hole, thatís in the back of my mind. I want to putt better, chip better. That day when I hit 18 greens and one putt, Iíll know Iím a complete golfer. Will that ever happen? Iím not sure, but itís possible. The 54 vision is always in the back of my mind.Ē

                      Just a quick update. The registration I am told will be open at noon this Saturday March 12 Also, just so everyone knows. This is a National Park. Anyone who knows National Park rules then knows that it is legal to drink in National Parks. We will all be there to enjoy ourselves but lets make sure we clean up after ourselves too. Just want to make sure we can keep doing this. Thanks...JB

                        This was a great event last year, and I am looking forward to it again. The park is gorgeous and the course perfect for all skill levels. Thank you JBack for hosting it again! See you all out there!
