The 49th IOS and first of the 2012 season will take place the first weekend of May (5th-6th) in Channahon, IL. Come on out and participate in this Pro C/Am-B Tier event as we remember my dad at The Dave Pitner Memorial.
Open, Intermediate, and Novice divisions play on Saturday. All other Divisions play Sunday.
Pre-Reg closes THURSDAY night, sorry, no exceptions!
Please note the NEW CHECK-IN AND PLAYER MEETING TIMES - 7:30-8:30 check-in, player meeting at 8:45! This should get everyone started in their rounds about 30 minutes sooner, and that means that you can get home just that much sooner!
Patrick - I agree, mother's day is a MUST avoid date while Father's day is far less of a problem. Some guys play *because* it's Father's day, and I think the amount of players that you lose is negligible. I ran that weekend in 2009 at West Park. There were 47 players, the Novice division was really small that weekend, not sure why. Novice was still a pretty new division though. I had 60-some the day before. Since Channahon is a better venue, you'd probably get the better turnout.
I have over about 350 new Innova discs and 250+ new discraft discs for this tournament (all stock stamped). I also have Innova dry-fit t-shirts and polos that will be available. Most of my stock will finally be returned to close to full strength!
Wow, less than 2 weeks away for IOS #1! The custom stamp order is arriving from Innova tomorrow. I put a near identical stamp as last year on the plastic, so hopefully everyone will enjoy as I heard many loved the stamp but were disappointed to only see it on Gateway.
Due to the Indiana States on Sunday within 50 miles of West Park - we are going to run all divisions on a SINGLE DAY. That means we max at 125 players, no exceptions! 1st round shorts, 2nd round longs.
FREE TO PRE-REGISTER We're going to try something slightly different for the pre-registration this time. To get in for this tournament, you don't have to pay ahead of time! You can go through www.paperorplasticsports.com to fill out the registration form. You just need to give me your name, PDGA #, and what division you will play. That will get you on the list.
At the tournament: Entry fee will be $30 for AM's, $50 for Pro's, $20 for Juniors. No $5 walk-up fee! Trophy only will be available for $20, 1/2 in Pro's for $25.
BONUS: AM's that want to play both weekends, August 14th and August 21st, just pay $50, and you get to play both tournaments - that's $10 off! You still get the same player pack, same amount added to payouts, all that great stuff! This is just added incentive to come on out and play these IOS events. Sorry about all the changes we've had to make! This discount will not be available for Trophy Only or for Pro's, sorry!
Brett is out at the course now accepting registrations. We will accept walk-up registrations tomorrow. $20 player packs, great payouts, and a mini basket to the winner of each of the 4 divisions, nice!
Registrations are coming in hot and heavy, so don't miss out on the fun!
