There is all sorts of camping available. As for what's included with the reg fee, I will double check on that and get back to you.

Direct quote from our msg board in regard to the players pack...

Assisstant TD wrote:great question! We have been working with Discraft again this year. Once again, we have come up with a sweet full color disc. We'll get a picture posted soon. Everyone (ams) will get one. Also, another disc from discraft, this Nuke everyone seems to be talking about with our tourney logo on it.

We will have another sweet players guide with directions to all the courses, OB's, sponsors, etc. If anybody knows Mikal Williams, make sure and thank him, he's put a lot of time in doing the layout and securing the printing sponsorship at Prairie Meadows for the last two years. He does some fantastic graphic design work there. The Des Moines Disc Golf Club is really honored and fortunate to have him on our team.

We've gotten a few snack sponsors as well through FritoLay, Little Debbie, and Sara Lee, I believe. So there will be some snack items in there to help you guys and gals make it through the nearly 15,000 feet of disc golf you'll play at Ewing and Pickard.

Finally, there will be a sweet tournament tee shirt in the package.

If I left anything out, DLC will pick up where I left off!


And just to point out...the 15,000 ft at Ewing and Pickard is all of that. Plus you get Walnut Ridge and Big Creek. Big Creek is home to a hole made famous back at the 2004 Worlds. Hole 11 is known as the Freak. So...

ARE YOU UP TO THE CHALLENGE?

I havent looked at the map yet, but does this mean one of the courses being played is 5 hours away another course?

If you camp at Acorn, then your longest drive would be to Pickard. So about 30-40 minutes. But more than likely, you would play Pickard and Ewing on the same day. And then Big Creek and Walnut on the same day.

Pickard and Ewing are on the South side of town where as BC and WR are on the North side. Acorn is right next door to WR.

The putt isn't pretty like last year, but it's the best I have right now.

More pressure on me this year than last....hope I rise to the occasion!

Got my reg in too. The Advanced division is blowing up. Something like 65 pre-reg'ed in that division.

This should be a great event. Some of the best courses in central Iowa. I'm not particularly looking forward to Ewing and Pickard on the second day...its gunna be tough. Luckily only Ewing is going to be from the longs for me...

It was a grueling tourney. Temps in the low 90's the whole weekend with high humidity. And some tough competition in the advanced division. Average round ratings in advanced for the top5 were 994, 989, 987, 985 and 980. It was a great tourney all in all. For those of you that are thinking about a weekend tourney...you definitely need to come to this one next year. You may not find 4 better courses in one tourney.
