I'm looking to attend this weekend and to join J-Town DGC for this event and also to begin attending other events during the year. I played with Discontinuum a year or two ago and then a wedding, house and other things got in the way of my schedule.
Can I sign up to play with J-Town and play with the club at the event?
PDGA #36536 Rating: <935 (iirc, I just renewed membership today.)
Sure, we'd be glad to have you. Just show up at the course and see one of the club officers (Ray, Frank, Dean, Dave, Jason) and we'll get you signed up with the club.
