Cool! Can't wait. Will people be divided up into groups or do you just start throwing after you sign up? Anyone willing to talk about the discs they're bringing? I was drinking beer last night when I made the comment of just bringing two discs. Now that I think about it more I'm wondering what else I should throw in my bag. I'm going to have to buy some new plastic for this. Will there be any for sale at tourney to help with donations?
It is an official PDGA event so we will be having a player's meeting and shotgun tee off like 'heavy disc' events (with 4 per card, etc). We'll all be playing in one big division because there won't be any payouts based on final scores (unless someone has a strange reason to play in another division).
IMO - One of the fun parts of this event is setting up a whole new bag and solving new problems with lighter discs! Last year, I was throwing a Champ Teebird, Star Teebird, CE Firebird, Japan Open XCaliber, Champ Glo Leopard, and approaching/upsidedown putting with a dx Zephyr
Lots of people had some really cool plastic to show off at the tourney last year
We ordered some Sudoku stamped Blizzard Boss's and Wraiths and we will have them on hand at the tourney (if not sooner!). I'll post as soon as they arrive with some pictures. I'm sure Keith will have some stuff on hand too!
I like throwing light weight "Baby Wraiths" in DX plastic. Beat up ones are good for turn overs, twists, & turns necessary at SeaTac. Newer ones work good for me for distance on more predictable shots. I have a Blizzard Wraith I'm waiting to try at SeaTac.
I am certain a scale will be there too so you can check & get approved any questionable discs. I found out a 159 Classic ROC I like was indeed a 159. I used this to putt with, I like putting with ROCs (sometimes).
I've been experimenting with a lot of 150 class stuff in preparation. I'll have some extra discs (150 class flat-top rocs, vps, soles, and ridges) if anyone wants to pick up a roc or a putter last minute. These are the discs that I didn't find particularly useful as they are very affected by the wind.
P.S. - We're going to have another puzzle available for the "Showdown" that we'll hand out on the day of the tourney, first solver gets a prize TBD! Soooo don't worry that the discs are already headed out to some folks
Awesome Looking Discs! Just got the OKAY Honey from the Wifey-Poo, so I will be making it to this event!!!! WAY STOKED! It will be my 1st Sanctioned Tourney and only my 3rd Tourney at all. I am REALLY looking forward to it.
Is there anyway to Pre-Register, or is there a chance of it filling up??? I REALLY do not want to miss this one....
