July 10th - Dueces Wild 2011 - Trinity and Highland
« on: June 29, 2011, 06:18:56 AM »
Deuces Wild 2010 - July 10th (Sunday only) - Trinity Links and Highland Park

Date change: The majority of my team will be playing Indiana State on Saturday. So, I've turned this into a one-day tournament on Sunday, July 10th. The players are to meet at Trinity by hole 1. Both courses are within a few miles of each other. Pros/Advanced will play Blue tees at Highland first, then the long tees at Trinity. The rest of the Ams will play Shorts at Trinity first, then the white tees at Highland for the second round.

AM/Pro C-tier tournament. One 18+ hole round at Highland, and one 18+ hole round at Trinity for a total of 36+ holes in this tournament. Special player pack prize awarded to the player with the most deuces over both courses in each division. Minimum 3 players in each division.

Please select which division you intend to play in. Note that ranked PDGA members cannot play in a division lower than where they are ranked.

Pre-registration is available online until 7pm the Saturday before the tournament, and in person at the store (1706 W. Jefferson St, Joliet, IL) until close of business that same Saturday. We are strongly encouraging pre-registration this year. We will also have registration available the day of the tournament between 7am-9am at Trinity Links, but it will be $10 extra. Please help us smooth the process out by pre-registering. Our thanks in advance to everyone who pre-registers!


Tentative Schedule:

Sunday:

Pro Open/Advanced: Highland Blues first round, Trinity Longs second round

All other Ams: Trinity Shorts first round, Highland Whites second round.

Players meeting at approx. 9:15am at Trinity, and tee off at approx. 9:30am (Trinity) & 10:00am (Highland).

Pre-registration is available here: http://www.acesandchains.com/node/441

If it's a one day tournament then why do you say both days 3 times in this post?
It's great to be alive!

Nice catch Sr.!

Fixed.

Long answer: I copied and pasted this from my website, and failed to catch that and change it.

Short answer: It's too early in the morning....

Played Trinity a couple times over the weekend, and Thor really has the course looking nice! This course is light years ahead of where it was just one year ago. Drainage has been improved, wood chips spread on the paths, and interesting new tee pad placements on several holes. There are new tee pad locations for either the short or long (or both) tees on holes 1, 2, 4, 7, 9, 12, & 18, and 15, 17, and 18 have new pin placements. I may have missed a few too, as I'm not that familiar with where the old long tees were at. The long and short of it is that the course plays much differently than it did in the past. The amount of risk/reward and decisions has been increased, making it a much more interesting course. Even if you don't plan to play the tournament, I suggest you come out to Trinity and check out the course again.

Oh, and deuces may be harder to come by than in the past........just sayin....

Since the majority of Pro's will probably be in IN, any chance with a low turnout we might just all play the same locations?  Just a car or two heading to Highland in the morning seems a little weird.

Good point Tafe.

I had planned to have Adv. and Pro play the blue tees at Highland, and the longs at Trinity. With that being the case, it's better to keep the other Ams separate from the Adv/Pro divisions for safety reasons.

I'll look at the field on Sunday though, and if I feel it doesn't make any sense to stay separate, then I may put the whole field together, but all on the shorts at Trinity, and White tees at Highland.

Pull the walk up fee for more players! Indiana State and Illinois State don't charge. 2 Veteran TDs at both. Just a thought for ya.

I've thought about this one a lot. The walk up fee is intended to encourage pre-registration. And I was tempted to stick to my original stance. It just makes the tournament run so much smoother when the majority of the players pre-register. So, before I announce any changes, let me just say this:

Please! If you can, please pre-register!

I've decided to compromise, and reduce the walk up fee to $5 for Deuces Wild. In addition, the first 5 players that offer to help with registration, or whatever else needs doing can get the fee waived.

I'm going to try this as a trial run. My intention is to make the walk up fee less painful, while improving the registration process. If this reduces the chaos in the morning, I may use this model going forward.

I'm also going to make a sign for the Pre-reg only line. Players who pre-reg will be able to walk up, sign their card, get their players pack and be done.

Hopefully, this will improve the process and the experience for everyone involved.

Pre-registration for Deuces Wild is open thru SATURDAY at 7pm. You may register online (see link above), or in person at the store (1706 W. Jefferson St., Joliet, IL.) My thanks to everyone who pre-registers!

Aw, bollocks to that!
I really want to play the longs.
How much of a safety issue could it be?  I think we can handle it.  Just have to warn the card behind the long tee players and send out a spotter from the card to keep someone from walking in front.  It should only come into play at #13 Lockport, and #'s 11, 12 and 15 at Highland.  Everhthing else is pretty obvious if people are playing longs, yeah?
Just a thought.
