Guaranteed premium merchandise added to amateur divisions payout.

The finest player's party the world has ever seen will be held on Saturday night.

The Louisiana representative to the 2011 USDGC will be chosen at this event.

As usual, tons and tons of CTPs will be out on the courses.

Vegas style Ace Pots for both courses, $1 thru $5.


Event Format

Pools and Courses

Pool, course and tee assignments will be finalized as the event draws near. The number of players registered and the concentration of these players by division will be taken into account before making these assignments. Every effort will be made to avoid overcrowding on the courses - including possibly a few temporary holes.

Schedule

Sign-up for unregistered players, collection of entry fees for pre-registered players and distribution of player's packs will start at 7:30 AM at Acadiana Park and finish at 9:00 AM.

A mandatory player's meeting will follow sign-ups. The first round of play will begin after the conclusion of the player's meeting. Expect a tee-time of approximately 9:30 AM for the first round.

The second round of play will begin approximately one hour after the last scorecard from the first round is turned in. The second round tee time will be announced verbally and posted in writing during lunch.

If necessary, ace pot throw offs will be held while the final scores are being tallied after the second round.

An awards ceremony will be held. All CTP prizes, awards, merchandise and cash won by players will be presented at the awards ceremony.


Lunch

Lunch will be served FREE OF CHARGE following the first round of play.

NO GUARANTEES, but we are working on a [COLOR="red"]crawfish boil [/COLOR]for lunch PLUS free beer. If that doesn't materialize, I guarantee we'll have something good to eat. Please indicate if you will be joining us for lunch when you register.

Player's Party

We invite all of our players to join us in enjoying the Festival Internationale de Louisiane in downtown Lafayette on Saturday night following the tournament.

It is one of the largest FREE outdoor music festivals in the nation. It features traditional Cajun, Zydeco and Swamp Pop music along with acts from the Carribean, Latin American, France, Africa and Canada. Food and drinks are available and arts and crafts from all over the world are on display. In addition, since it takes place in downtown Lafayette, most bars and restaurants are open for business throughout the festival site. It is worth coming to town just for the party alone, much less a fun-filled day of disc golf, great music, good food and drinks.

The Festival starts on Wednesday night and runs through Sunday. Saturday night's lineup includes some Acadiana favorites, The Lost Bayou Ramblers and Cory Ledet and his Zydeco Band.

For more information, check out the Festival's website http://www.festivalinternational.com/site349.php


Directions, Lodging and Contact Information

Hotel

An official tournament hotel will be announced as soon as an agreement is reached. Booking at the last minute might be difficult due to the enormous number of people in town that weekend for the Festival. Don't wait until the last minute to get a room.

Camping

As always, camping is available at Acadiana Park's Campground. Get more info at http://www.visitusa.com/louisiana/camping/acadianaparkcampground.htm. I doubt they will fill up, but expect a bigger than usual crowd at the campground this weekend too.

Acadiana Park

From I-10, turn South at exit 104 (Louisiana Ave). Turn left on Alexander St. Acadiana Park is approximately 1/2 mile down Alexander on the left hand side. The parking lot is just past the playground, before the tennis courts. Hole 1 for the Ace Run is behind the bathrooms to the left of the parking lot. Hole 1 for the Duzee is behind the soccer fields in front of the parking lot.

For GPS users, Acadiana Park's physical address is 1005 E. Alexander Street, Lafayette, LA

Just a reminder, EVERYBODY gets a DISC and a SHIRT and LUNCH just for showing up.

"What kind of disc?" you ask.

This kind...


Image


"Awesome", you say, "I always wanted a disc with a crawfish on it."

_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Last, but not least, TROPHIES.





We must have forgot the trophies because I haven't said anything about them yet, right?






NOT

That's a miniature, all metal basket (12" tall) in a solid marble base.

GUARANTEED TO FIRST PLACE IN ALL DIVISIONS and possibly second and third in others.

I know we usually do top three in all AM divisions, but these are especially tedious and time consuming to make and I don't want to get bogged down on them at the expense of other preparations.

______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Thanks again to our sponsors and thanks to the players who have already signed-up, it really does make it a lot easier to plan and host an event when you know who is coming.

We played Blue Angel and we played Crystal Springs and we came back to Lafayette with a serious case of HANGING BASKET ENVY so we decided we needed to join the fun...

Hanging around with hole #6 on the Ace Run.

There is definitely a little more hijinks on the way including a limited time only SPRING fling basket. You won't want to miss it!

A lot of people have been working really hard to make sure that Acadiana Park will look its springtime finest for this tournament.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Speaking of monkeying around....


Image



We just couldn't help ourselves. After all, it is the SPRING FLING!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Last but not least, I want to talk about a subject of the utmost importance - CRAWFISH.

It looks like we are going to pull it off - a FREE crawfish boil for lunch between rounds on Saturday. I will make another announcement as soon as I am 100% certain.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Almost forgot - I want to make sure everybody knows that ALL divisions will play the cement tees on both courses. If you come to town to practice, don't practice the long tees on either course. As usual, we will have blue tees staked out on some of the longer holes and some of the disc eaters for the novice and junior divisions.

116 registered out of a possible 144.

There are still 28 spots left (29 with Mr Louis withdrawing) so get off your keester, sign up and come join us in Lafayette for a good time this weekend.


Image


Several players have contacted me about changing divisions. The website that we use for sign-ups does allow me to edit your registrations (or so it said) but I haven't figured out how and I don't have time to learn any new tricks right now so remind us on Saturday morning and we will get you fixed up then.

__________________________________________


Now after playing Disc Golf at Acadiana Park all day and partying at the Festival all night, there is a good chance you might end up looking like this....


Image


However if you wake up Sunday morning bright eyed and bushy tailed and feel like playing some more golf, come join us at 10:00 for Sunday doubles - blind-draw, best-shot format with cash payout & a progressive ace pot. Ask anybody from Lafayette at the Spring Fling and they will give you all the details.
