Leagues & Tourneys / LIS: Ledgestone Insurance Frenzy B Tier 8/11
« on: July 06, 2012, 08:53:56 PM »
We know you have been waiting for it, and so here it is. This will be the second biggest event of the Series and will involve the most holes played for any single tournament of the Ledgestone Insurance Series. Here are the awesome details:

When: Saturday, August 11th
Time: Players Meeting at 7AM and Teeoff at 7:30AM
Courses: 4 rounds of 18 holes each, with the following courses used - Eureka, Morton, ICC, and Washington (in that order)
What: This "Frenzy" tournament will require a full day of disc golf. Four sanctioned rounds in one day throughout Central Illinois will be the challenge! This will be a PDGA B tier and will be pre-registration only. At this time we are only allowing 72 players. If we get more than 60 players signed up we will divide Pro/Adv and All Other Division into different course orders to accommodate more people and a shorter day. If that happens the Pro/Adv would play the same courses but play them in reverse.
Players Pack: All AM's will receive a Blizzard Champion disc. Also, the first 25 AM's to pre-register will get a DX Aviar.
Added Money: We will add at least $500 to the Pro Divisions.
Lunch: Goodfellas will be providing a box lunch with gondola, chips and a cookies for $7. We can take orders before the tournament or before the first round and have them at the second course.
Series Structure: This event will afford double points as this is a PDGA B Tier. Non PDGA members will need to pay an extra $10.

Pre-registration is at the following site:

http://illinoisdiscgolf.com/LISregistration-Ledgestone_Insurance_Frenzy.html

Here is the pricing for the tournament:

All Pro Divisions: $60
All Advanced Divisions: $45
All Other Amateur Divisions: $35

PDGA will be setup soon but we do already have a handful of players signed up so make sure to pre-register. This will be pre-registration only!

The doubles and triples tournaments will not count towards the series in terms of the points structure. Unsanctioned events, including the Cherry Fest and the Glo Popcorn Festival Tournament will count towards the series. Here is the points structure:

Points System for the Series
C-Tier – 5 points for everyone you beat and 5 points for showing up (first place gets an additional 10 points, while second place gets an additional 5 points)
A/B-Tier – 10 points for everyone you beat and 10 points for showing up (first place gets an additional 15 points, while second place gets an additional 10 points)

Prizes for the Series
Men’s Pro – Top Pro is guaranteed $450 cash for winning the series (second place will get $200 cash)
Men’s Advanced – Top Advanced player is guaranteed at least $300 in merchandise money
Men’s Intermediate – Top Intermediate player is guaranteed at least $150 in merchandise money
NOTE: These are the only guaranteed divisions to get a prize – the payout for other divisions and the series structure will be determined based on the number of players in each division

The points system is simple - you get points in the division you play in and you can't move those points around. If you want to play Masters one tournament and Advanced another tournament, those points will count in the Masters and Advanced divisions respectively.

We will have more information on the Facebook page of Plastic Addicts and will have information sent out via email as well. In addition, information will be posted on http://www.illinoisdiscolf.com

We are still looking for a few large sponsors so if you know of anyone that is interested please let me know by emailing me at nate@ledgestonegrp.com
