Time to start preparing for your trip to Montana to play the Treasure State's premier event, the Zoo Town Open on June 2 - 3. This year's event will be a B tier event but expect to see as many, if not more, player amenities as you would at any Major event. We take player hospitality seriously, and we think you'll agree!!
Registration will be capped at 100 players. Online reg will be available through the GCF website at www.gardencityflyers.org
and will open on Tuesday, April 17 at 8:00 MST. Be prepared to register as soon as it opens as last year's event filled in 16 hours and with non-PDGA members being allowed to play this year, we are expecting it to fill even faster this year. 90 spots will be available online, first come - first serve. After that a waitlist will be kept. 5 "Sponsor Exempt Spots" will be available for Silver Level Sponsors ($100+ in cash/schwag) until 2 weeks before the event (May 19). 5 spots will also remain available for PDGA Touring Pros until May 19th at which point any remaing spots will be filled from the waitlist. For the purpose of the 2012 ZTO ONLY, a Touring Pro will be any male with a rating over 1000 or any female with a rating over 930.
The format will be much the same as in year's past with 2 rounds on Saturday at Blue Mtn and 1 round, with tee times, at a temp course at Fort Missoula on Sunday.
Did I mention that Blue Mountain now has tee pads?!!!! 9 wood framed rubber tee pads are in the ground now with 9 more going in as soon as conditions permit. There will not be pads on all holes in time for the event, but most of the holes will have nice, flat, smooth rubber tee pads so no more excuses!!
Hope to see you here in the Zoo this June!!!
