We've added a tournament t-shirt to the players pack for the first 100 players to register. To receive the t-shirt, you must also register prior to May 1st (so we have time to print them.) If you have already registered, you will be receiving an email in the next few days asking for your shirt size.

We will also be providing some food for all the registered players who attend the players party Saturday night. This is thanks to our generous sponsor Axiom Discs. The remainder of the sponsorship money will be added to the payouts.

I just received word that the Watermelon Proxy's are ready. I am ordering them on Monday. We will have 100 of this limited run disc available, and all proceed earned from their sale will go into the First Flight tournament.

They are $24.99 each. If you need them shipped, their is an additional $2.50 for shipping.

I'll have these up on www.acesandchains.com as soon as they come in. If anyone wants to pre-order one, you can paypal me at pat_johnson88@Hotmail.com

Thank you to Larry Pennuto for the generous hole sponsorship!

I am very excited to announce that Viridisk will be coming to film the tournament! If you are not familiar with their work, follow this link to their website to check it out: http://www.viridisk.com/

With their unique combination of cameras and angles, I can't wait to see what the tournament coverage will look like.

My thanks to Ryan Aquino for his sponsorship/donation!

Once again, First Flight presented by Axiom Discs is a qualifier for the United States Amateur Disc Golf Championship! Since the USADGC will be held prior to First Flight this year, it will be a qualifier for the 2016 USADGC.

Love the new bridge on hole 2 at Channahon. Hadn't been out there in a while. Course looks great as usual.

That guy Frank never stops working does he?

First Flight flymart - Friday May 22nd

Once again this year's flymart will be held at the Clarion Hotel Joliet Banquet and Convention Center (formerly the Holiday Inn) on the corner of Larkin and McDonough from 5pm-8pm.

Players are asked to come out to the flymart between 5pm-8pm to pick up their players packs.

For more information about flymart, please check out this link: http://www.acesandchains.com/node/1168

More info will be posted as it becomes available.

Two card sponsors so far:

Gateway Disc Sports
MVP/Axiom Discs

I'm working on getting a third card sponsor. The winner of the card (for each round with a card sponsor) will win a free disc.

May 23rd & 24th - First Flight Presented by Axiom Discs - Ams only A-Tier

We've added another course this year. Players will play one round each at The Canyons at Dellwood Park, Highland Park, and Channahon Community Park. Total maximum number of players is 216. This tournament filled early last year, and we had to turn people away, so don't wait too long to register.

Players Pack (so far):

Innova Disc
Latitude64 Disc
Gateway Disc
Salient Liquid Metal Disc
Tournament Poster
Players Guide

Pre-registration is mandatory. We will not be taking walk ups for this tournament. Also, since it's an A-tier, PDGA membership is a requirement. Registration will close on Wednesday, May 20th at 4pm. Of course, if we fill before then, it will close at that time.

Final 9: We will have a final 9 for every division with 12 or more players! The layout has yet to be determined. Check back here for more info at a later date.

Registration fee is $65, which includes $3 for the ace pot, and a $2 online registration fee. Pre-registration is available here: http://www.acesandchains.com/node/21

Of course, you can also register in person at Aces and Chains, 1706 W. Jefferson St., Joliet, IL  815-207-8874. If you register in person, you save the $2 online registration fee. (You can also mail in your registration to the same address.)
