I've had a few questions about the putting contest.....
We're going to have 3 windows for the putting contest on Sunday- noon, 2pm, and 4pm. That allows players who show up at different times the opportunity to still participate. Whoever gets the best score from all the participants will be the winner. So, obviously, the winner won't be announced until after the 4pm window is closed.
I think we all know that Innova's discs have a tendency to change slightly over time due to differences in the plastic used, which mold, what time of year, was it humid or not, hot or cold out, etc. etc.,
So, even though it might just be two different guys marking the discs, there might still be a corollation (sp?) between the different markings and a difference in the discs. What if, say, one of them works the day shift, and the other works the night shift? Could that cause enough difference between discs of the same model that you would notice a difference in the flight pattern or wear characteristics?
Aces and Chains disc golf pro shop has it's official grand opening this coming weekend;
Saturday March 5th from 11am-6pm Sunday March 6th from 11am-6pm
-We'll have free food and bottled water while supplies last -Everyone gets a "players pack" including a free mini, vinyl sticker, and some other goodies. -Putting contest held on Sunday, weather permitting. -Portable basket raffle (free ticket with any purchase.)
Stop by and check us out!
Spring hours start Monday, March 7th (ie: after the grand opening.):
According to Innova, there is no difference between a Destroyer marked D, or DS, other than who marked it. Apparently, one guy there likes to mark them D, and the other marks them DS. This is according to my sales rep at Innova.
Not saying I know it's true.....just relaying what Innova told me.
Inventory is starting to go up online as well. I hope to have all of it up by the grand opening. Free shipping for all online disc orders in the continental U.S.! Still the same great prices as in the store.
Frank, Thanks for stopping by to see the store. Sorry I missed you.
The store does not "officially" open until March 5th. However.....
For J-Town members (and anyone who just happens by) I will be doing a "soft" open of the Aces and Chains Disc Golf store starting Friday 2/4/11 from 3-6p. The store will be open this way
M, T, & Th 3-6p W & F 4-7p
until the grand opening. My POS system (ie: cash register) isn't up and running just yet, so if you want to purchase something, it will be cash only. I'll post here when I start accepting credit cards (maybe a week or so from now.)
I'm doing this to let J-Town members get a preview of the store prior to the grand opening, and hopefully, you can all help me spread the word. Please stop by and visit sometime this month if you can. I look forward to seeing all of you again.
If you need something outside of these hours, you can always call me at 815-993-3472 (cell), and you can call the store at 815-207-8874.
Here are the tournaments I'm running this year. Just thought I'd give everyone an early heads up.....
4-9: First Flight 2011 at Highland 5-7: Shot Down in Flames 2011 at Shorewood - Ams only 6-25 & 6-26: Chain Reaction 2011 at West Park 7-9 & 7-10: Deuces Wild 2011 at Eagle Ridge and Jericho Lake 8-27 & 8-28: The Wild West 2011 @ West Park.
Aces and Chains will be starting a new lost and found service. Here's how it works:
Found: Bring any found disc (or just ones you don't want) to the store, and we will give you a $2 credit for it. If your name is on the disc, Please let us know so that we don't call you.
Lost: Discs with names and numbers on them will be called several times. If there are other identifying marks on the disc, we will try to figure out who it belongs to and contact that owner. If the owner wants to come in and get the disc, we will hold it for them. When they come in for the disc, we ask for $2. Any disc whose owner cannot be contacted, or whose owner doesn't want it, will be put in the used disc bin to be sold.
That's it in a nutshell. Aces and Chains store officially opens March 5th. Bring those found discs in and we'll take care of the rest.
