You going to try and do skins this year? I predict -40 will win Open

I don't think we'll be doing skins this year, but I'll bring it up to the guys,,, are you talking about maybe a friday skins round?? I think we usually try to do an afternoon doubles round at pecan on friday before the tourney...

I think -30 would be a more realistic open winner prediction... last year JD Ramirez took it with a -24, but mainly because pioneer park was pretty wet... open players usual can shoot in the low 40s at pecan, but pioneer is a little tougher, i would love to see someone torch that course with a low 40s score,, it can be done, especially since we don't have many open players in Nac and i've seen several -8 scores out there,,,

I saw on pdga.com that you took 1st a couple years out there,, u coming this year?

Sweet...think I'll have to hit this one up this year. I've heard good things about the event and the courses. Any place to camp nearby? I'm trying to avoid paying for a hotel if possible...

...and I didn't realize that its a 3-hr drive from Texarkana! I figured anywhere in East Texas would be closer than that :)

there are some decent campgrounds in Nac, camp tonkawa is a few miles outside of town, there are also RV parks all over Nacogdoches,,,
we've also got some run down motels that should only set you back about $30...

let me know if you got problems finding a spot, and i'll see what i can do...
we're running our own tourney this year, the past few years it was put on by rick bannister,, we're also gonna get help from Jerry Power (pro master world champ out of tyler, tx) just to make sure everything runs smoothly...

typically our only PDGA sanctioned event is the Pecan Park Open in April, and we'll be doing Ice Bowls from now on every Jan/Feb. As far as club events, we have the minis every saturday (check http://www.naccrushers.com for times/location/format) we usually get together on sundays at 2pm for an informal money round.

Every 2 months or so we try to do a non-club sponsered tourney where we play Super 9s or alternate tees. that's usually where you can win the most money.

This summer our big project will probably be installing our newest Nac course at Lake Nacogdoches (if things work out). We'd definatly have a large tourney for its grand opening whenever that will be. We just got permission from the parks dept. to build the course, and the land allotted is actually larger than pecan and pioneer parks, so we have high hopes for it.

come home for the weekend and play in the pecan park open! it's only a few hours away from college station. our minis are growing as we are now getting more organized. typical tournout is about 20-30 players, sometimes larger.

I too grew up in Nac. A course out at the lake would be awesome.

I'm debating making the trip down for the tournament. Leaning towards yes at this point.

Edit: I've played Pecan a lot, but only with friends and family. Anyway, I'm curious how well some of the more serious players down there shoot on that course. What is a typical winning score at one of the minis?

typically at pecan our top club players will shoot 47-50 @ Pecan in our minis, but sometimes you only gotta shoot a smooth 54 to take it. We don't have any open players in our club, but we have some that play advanced. At pioneer, the mini winners shoot about 50-54. For doubles (which we play every other weekend) it takes about a 44-48 to win it. Pioneer doubles is all over the map, it's about whoever's on that day. You can check out PDGA's website for how ppl performed in last years open. JD Ramirez has ruled the tourney for the past few years, postin low 40s rounds consistently.

I hope you can make it down to some of our minis or the pecan park open, just PM if you ever need someone to throw a round with.

A course out at the lake would be awesome


it would be, the city gave us enough land to put in two courses, so that's what we hope to shoot for, basically we really going to step up the fundraising for it after the open in april, hopefully we can get some good support on our side from the city and local sponsers. It'd be nice to get a little more technical course or maybe a course with multiple tees and pins.

oh, Idaho's a different thing! well, i undestand if you can't make it this one time :roll:
if not, hope to see you out this summer, those minis in july and august are sometimes a test of will, fighting fire ants, the all imposing sun, and melted discs.

Yeah, we'll be selling fund raiser discs, we're hoping to get them up on the site, i'll let you know when they come in if you want to and if nothing else I could just mail them to you. I should know exactly what we're getting in the next week or two.
