  • 3rd annual Battle of the Barracks ~ Sunday June 3rd Fort Vancouver Park

    Signups are now Live!

    The 3rd Annual Battle at the Barracks

    Hello fellow discers! This year for the battle we will be playing the park in warmer weather, we have chosen Sunday June 3rd, 2012. It is a bit later in the season in order to try to capitalize on some dry grass and sunshine (hopefully).* Last year was a blast and we are going to continue the format but we will have more holes and divisions. *We had a pretty good turnout again last year and the park service is fully on board.* This year the cost is $35 if you sign up on time at www.northwestsignup.com. This year “day of” sign ups will cost $40 (in order to encourage people to use the sign up website).* So, here we are again.

    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 144 players and multiple divisions. 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 as well as cool players packs this year including a tournament disc. We will be having a raffle fundraiser to benefit Discvango and we will be doing a ring of fire.

    Schedule:

    7:15-7:45 Player check in for Pool B
    8:00 Player’s meeting (Pool B)
    8:15 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)
    12:15Player’s meeting (Pool B)
    12:45 Tee off (Pool B 2nd round)
    2:00 Player’s meeting (Pool A)
    2:30 Tee off (Pool A 2nd round)
    4:45 Ring of fire and Awards

    This tournament will be pre-registration only. The cost of the tourney is $35.00 online or $40.00 the day of. All divisions must have at least 3 players. Sign-up’s are located on www.northwestsignup.com or regdisc.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!

      All these questions and many more will have answers by the end of the week as we hammer out the details. It will NOT be a PDGA santioned event.

        Some other info on the Battle! I was asked if we could consider the "Battle at the Barracks" as part of the Washington State Series next year. I believe it will be a qualifier for the finals but do not have much information at this time. As of next year it may turn into a PDGA sanctioned event but if not it will hopefully be a part of the Washington State Series.

        Also, I have been asked to throw the long drive competition again this year so if you want in, bring your dollars....a dollar a throw. Sign ups seem to be a bit slow just like the previous years however, I anticipate the tourney to have close to a hundred this year and maybe more. Come on all you discers!!!! Sign up for this once in a year tourney its a great time.

            Sadface about non PDGA. I was totally thinking about heading out until I realised.

            Let me know when you guys throw a sanctioned tourney!!

              The reason why it has not been a PDGA Sanctioned event is because it has been a Fundraiser Tourney since it had started. This year is not a fundraiser so the payouts are great. Plus a players pack, lunch, games, and trophy's. This is exactly like the pdga events only more fun. Drinking is legal there and its a beautiful park (it is a barefoot course). Very well groomed and a once a year tourney that will continue to grow. Sorry to hear that pdga is the only tourney's your interested in Would like to see you out there anyway. WE NEED MORE WOMEN!!!!!

                Remember if you show up the day of and pay it will be $40 dollars. Pay online before hand and its $35. Some of you have not paid but you are on the list anyway. Remember if you are on the list and we fill the tourney, those that have not paid will lose there spot to someone wanting to get in that has Ca$h Money. So here is the temporary registration. http://www.discgolfscene.com/tournam...2/registration

                        I was just checking out the schedule - looks like it allows for 2 hour rounds. Is this really likely? Nearly every tournament round I have ever played has exceeded 3 hours for 18 holes.

                              Battle at The Barracks In 3d

                              So here is an update on the Battle at The Barracks tres

                              Registration is now closed for the online preregistration. I just wanted to let everyone know that if you ARE planning on coming and you ARE planning on paying the day of, we are taking names and divisions of people who are wanting to get on the list. I anticipate the tournament maybe filling this year and I really would like to not to have to send anyone home.

                              If you contact myself or Dave you can get your name on the list and be guaranteed a spot and just pay on the day of the tourney.

                              Another Note: Nate Sexton will be at the Barracks this year and he has agreed to put on a "Putting Clinic". Let me be the first to say Thanks Nate

                              There is in fact 18 holes, 2 rounds, players pack, lunch, raffle, long drive, ctp's, putting clinic, and everyone entering gets a single raffle ticket to try to win a basket.

                              Lets pray for sun!
