Another Hole Sponsor!

Nevin's Brewing Company was kind enough to give a $25 gift certificate to sponsor a hole. If you've never been to NBC, you need to check it out. Great food, and they make their own micro-brews. What's not to like?

If you finish "in the cash," you'll receive a gift card for the appropriate amount to Aces and Chains Disc Golf shop. You can pick up your plastic that day, or anytime thereafter.

This is a good question by the way, as some tournaments are moving toward a trophy only format with bigger players packs. But we'll be doing payouts just like normal.

My bad. For some reason I get these mixed up with Discatchers. The baskets I have are actually Chainstars, so they will match what Gary has. Been trying to reach him for over a week now. I also have the sign from hole 4 at West. A customer brought it in saying that he caught some kids vandalizing it and took it away from them. He left it with me to get it back to Gary, or the park district. I'll keep trying to reach him.

First Flight Flymart:

Friday, March 28th
Holiday Inn
411 S. Larkin - Joliet

Players are asked to come check in, and get their players packs at the flymart.

We'll have some great vendors, and a putting competition with some great prizes run by Miles Parkhill of Paragon, and sponsored by DGA.

Everyone is welcome to come out to the flymart, whether you are playing in the tournament or not. So come on out and get yourself some sweet plastic!

If you are interested in selling some of your collectables, or any disc golf related merch, registered players can get a table at flymart for $25. Vendors can get 2 tables for $50 and extra tables at $20 each. Contact Patrick at 815-993-3472 for details or to sign up.

When the time comes, I'd be more than happy to donate a few baskets to get Highland up to snuff. I currently have three Discatchers that I would donate. And I'm sure I could buy a few more to help out.

It would be great to get this done in the next year or two. I do plan to expand First Flight, the A-tier I'm running, to include the Pros, and I would prefer to run one or two of their rounds at Highland.

So count me in! Please let me know if/when this is happening and I will participate in whatever way is needed.

We're starting to get some of the smaller divisions to sign up. Let's see if we can get at least 4 in each of the following groups:

Advanced Senior Grandmaster: 1 signed up so far
Advanced Master: 2 signed up so far
Novice Women: 1 signed up so far

All divisions are available. I think Legend is the only one I don't have on the list and I'll happily add it if someone wants to play in it.

Don't forget to sign up by Feb 14th to get the fly dry long sleeve t-shirt. Anyone signing up after Feb 14th will not receive a shirt (but you'll still get the rest of our great players pack!) Registration is available here: http://www.acesandchains.com/node/21

The list of players currently registered is available here:  http://www.pdga.com/tour/event/16436

If there are at least 3 players signed up in a division, I'll have a trophy for you.

Here's the breakdown on who plays where:

2 rounds at Channahon (1 long, 1 short) on Sat. and 1 round at RBF (Red baskets) Sun:

Adv Masters
Adv Grandmasters
Adv Sr. Grandmasters

2 rounds at RBF on Sat (1 Silvers, 1 Reds) and 1 round at Channahon Sun (shorts):

All Women's divisions
All Jr. Divisions

We will also have a final 9 for the top 4 in the Men's Advanced division at RBF on Sunday. The final 9 will be a tough layout. I'm hoping to keep it relatively secret until just before the tourney. But I can tell you it will be a safari setup (ie: not the normal course layout), and it will be long. It should test the abilities of the top four, and provide for a good show for the spectators.

Another hole sponsor!

TownePlace Suites by Marriott: Donated a VIP Guest Pass good for one complimentary stay in a Studio King Suite. They are located just north of Route 6 off Houbolt (just north of the I-80 Expressway.)

Huge shout out to Blaine Schepp for a generous hole sponsor donation! Blaine donated a $45 Aces and Chains gift card that will go as a CTP on one of the courses.

I appreciate that Rob! The more players we have that take advantage of the offer, the more likely they are to continue their support again next year. I tried to get them to be the title sponsor this year, but I couldn't get them to pull the trigger. If they see enough support, maybe next year they will. In order to make this a full A-tier (with Pros included) in the future, I'll need a title sponsor. So definitely, if you can stay at the hotel, that would be great!

I'm very happy to add The Hollywood Casino and Hotel to our list of sponsors.

Hotel: The Hollywood Hotel has generously offered a discount for your stay during the tournament of $89 per night. Just mention the booking code "FLIGHT" at the time of booking to get the discounted rate. This will also help us track guests brought into The Hollywood Hotel by the tournament and it's advertising. Call 1-888-436-7737 to book your room(s). They are conveniently located minutes away from the Channahon Course.

Epic Buffet: They have also offered a $6 discount that can be used at The Epic Buffet. Dig into a never-ending parade of flavors - Prime rib, seafood, pasta, salads, a sweet collection of delectable desserts, and plenty more. The Epic Buffet is a great place to eat and relax after your rounds. Details on the discount, and how to get it will be included in your players pack.

Hole Sponsor: The Hollywood Casino has also generously offered to provide two certificates good for one free dinner, and a one night stay at The Hollywood Hotel! These will be given away to two lucky players over the course of tournament weekend.


Remember to support our sponsors, as they support disc golf!

Final 9 for the top four advanced players:

I have play tested a 9 hole safari setup at RBF for the final 9. It's really going to test each players skill level, and could easily result in the top four places changing during the last 9 holes. Only the top 4 Advanced players will play it, and spectators are encouraged. I plan to have a portable leaderboard for the top 4 so spectators can easily see the scoring changes from hole to hole.

Please note that you have to pre-register by February 14th to get the long sleeve dry fit t-shirt! It's a $25 value, so pre-register early so you don't miss out!

Thanks Joe, I appreciate the assist!

MVP is on board as a card sponsor. Just received 36 Proton Volts.

Vibram is also on board as a card sponsor. I should receive their contribution soon.

Thanks to MVP and Vibram, the winner of each 2nd round card, and 3rd round card will receive a free disc as a prize for winning their card!
