We are a small Disc Golf club called Disc Domination and we put on partial-fund raising tournaments. Our tournaments are about social events. Getting together and playing some disc. Most of our tournaments are Doubles and Triples.
Discology is a different kind of tournament, loosely based on the Decathlon. It's about team play and skill. There may even be the need for strategies.
Some holes are standard holes being played as a team in a best disc format. Meaning that all throw and the team selects the best disc to play from next.
Some holes will have a skill shot element. Examples would be that all drives must be a Tomahawk, or maybe all right handed players must throw a forehand drive while all left handed players must throw a backhand. a sure bet is that there will be a hula-hoop in there somewhere. We are big fans of the ultimate Frisbee's. I think you get the idea.
We try to run a fun event that is well ran. We want the players to have fun.
I said partial-fund raising tournaments near the beginning what does that mean? We want to cover our cost to put on a great event but little more than that. We cover our costs and $1 per play will go to the club and the remainder is paid back out. We use the money we raise to maintain disc golf parks (mainly Vance and Rockwood so far) and to put in new parks. We worked for over a year to put in Columbia View and we did it. We sadly had to remove it do to a few bad apples and some grouchy neighbor's. We are working on a new location and we still have the baskets.
Justin, I hope that answers your questions.
I hope you will gather up a team and come out for a great day with all of us.
I just wanted to say how sorry I was to see the Columbia View course pulled. I thought the course was very fun and I loved to go and play rounds there and I rode roughshod over the peeps I played with to not drink while at the course...
I can't wait to see what you have in store next for those bentley baskets. Thanks for all you do for disc golf in east county.
