If you play in a division that is defined by age or gender and you want there to be a trophy disc for your division, be sure to pre-register three weeks in advance.

Or think, in the next 10 day or how about now?

You can register for the Mother Lode at www.discgolfclub.org/proshop

We are looking forward to seeing you in Springfield.

Throw Well,

Getting to Crunch time -



We would love to have you come and see the good things happening at Lincoln Park in Springfield . Come and "Throw 36 on 66"...



The Mother Lode on The Mother Road is a two-day event for the Advanced and higher divisions and a Saturday only event for intermediate and lower...



On Saturday everybody plays both 18 holes course in Lincoln Park - the newly tweaked South/Gray course and the newly installed North/Blue course.



A non-sanctioned one round $15.00 tourney has been added to the schedule for Sunday, so if you are going to be in town because of your Mother Lode carpool - sneak a tourney round in at Douglas in the morning before catching some Gallery Action over at Lincoln Park South.



A special thanks goes out to Miles Parkhill, proprietor of PARAGON DISC GOLF for hosting this additional tourney at Douglas Park on Sunday Morning. Along with hosting the One Round at Douglas Park on Sunday, Paragon Disc Golf is the title sponsor of this B-tier.



Please check out www.paragondiscgolf.com for more information about the National Ace Bounty and how you can win $100.00 for your aces thrown in PDGA events during the calendar year with a single entry...



Registration for the Mother Lode and the One Round at Douglas on that Sunday can be done online here:

http://discgolfclub.org/proshop/index.p ... ex&cPath=9


FYI for those players who like to get some practice in before an event - all the baskets are in the first day tourney layout...



The South course is now in the new layout, so start following the new flow - this includes 3 new wooded holes...



Follow the NexTEES to the next hole. We are proud to announce that Lincoln Park is the first facility outside of the PDGA Headquarters to have NexTEES installed... We think you will love'em as much as we do. NexTEES are yellow arrow indicators installed at the base of the baskets that point you in the direction of the next tee area.



Here is what we have waiting for the advanced and above for the second day of the event for the Advanced Divisions and above...



2nd Day Layout - 21 holes of Lincoln Park - South in a mood...



The inner circle of 1, 2, and 3 North will play as A, B, & C...



A: Asphalt parking area across the inner road across from #1 South - the Right Pin Position of #1 North
B: Blue Teepad of #2 North to the C Position of #2 North
C: Blue Teepad of #3 North to the B Position of #3 North (Parking Lot Pin)
1: Blue Teepad for #1 South to the B-Long Position of #1 South
2: Blue Teepad for #2 South to the B Position of #2 South (Valley Pin)
3: New Wooded Hole
4: Old #3 South from Blues across the Lagoon to the Club Titan
5: New hole across the meadow and up the hill into the woods - dual route
6: Old #4 but with a new Blue Teepad up on the hill in woods to the long pin
7: Old #5 Blues to the short position on hill's edge
8: Old #6 Blues to the long - blind basket to the right
9: Old #7 Island hole to the long pin position at the base of the hill
10: Old #8 Blues to long pin
11: Old #9 Blues to new pin position back in the woods just in front of drop
12: Old #10 to new pin position in the woods to the left of current pins
13: Old #11 Blues to the deep position down the hill - dog leg left
14: New woods shot from Blue Position to Long Pin across the retaining walls
15: A short walk across the bridge to old #17 Blues to Long Position
16: Old #12 tee to Old #13 Alternate B Pin in the Valley
17: Old #13 tee to Old #13 A Position
18: Old #14 White Tee to #5 North Pin - approx 950 feet.



Avoid the $5.00 day of registration fee and register early for the tourney in the club's online proshop - you can choose PayPal, credit card (see directions down the left side of the front page of the proshop), check, cash or money order...



Remember there is a non-sanctioned one round tourney on the Sunday for those staying in town because of carpools or for the locals who want to play - online registration for that event - $15.00 - so drag some friends along and split the gas and lodging.



The host hotel is the Howard Johnson which is just on the other side of Lincoln 's Tomb from Lincoln Park

52 pre-regs.

After today's showers, we are forcasted for PERFECT weather for this weekend. Mid-70's.

Just need to clarify... some questions were asked.

All of the Advanced divisions and all of the Open divisions - play both days.

And all those divisions are playing the same layout.

On Saturday - Intermediate is playing the White Tees with Rec and Novice playing the Red tees.
