I'm very proud to officially announce that AAA is sponsoring this year's First Flight tournament - making it a full B-Tier!

Rufus Cathey of AAA was able to get this sponsorship for us. Please keep him in mind for your next insurance quote. (I'll have his info available at the tournament.)

AAA stepped up to support the sport. Let's show them the love and support they deserve!

Over 40 players pre-registered already. By far the most I've had for any tournament with 5 days to go. I do believe this one is going to fill.

Only two Pros signed up so far! ($500 added to the pro pot - it's a B-tier)

Plus, Ams get a t-shirt for pre-registering. Don't wait too long.

Tees and OB
« Reply #5 on: March 22, 2012, 07:49:07 AM »
All White tees both days.

OB as follows:

All streets (not including the curbs). Surrounded by water in the creek by hole 12 (very little water there now. If you succeed in getting surrounded by water, you are OB.)

No two meter rule

1.) OB behind the basket. Line is marked with flags and yellow twine.
3.) Must throw over the street to be inbounds. The street and everything on the tee side are OB. A drop zone will be provided.
9.) On or over the street to the right is OB
12.) Street, concrete pad, and surrounded by water in the creek are all OB
17.) On or over the street to the right, and around behind the hole is OB.

There are a few other minor area of OB that most players will be unlikely to hit. Those will be covered at the players meeting or on the handout.

Thank you to everyone! Thanks for coming out and I hope everyone had a great time.

Cory Clements: He could run the tournament by himself if he had to...and sometimes he does! Always there, always organized. I could not run these tournaments without Cory. He's a great friend, and a perfect compliment to my team. Thank you Cory for everything you do.

Eulojio Ortega: (Chicago Muralist) Eulojio is a very talented artist that volunteered his time to make the hotstamp and poster. The T-shirt was also based on his artwork. First Flight's artwork this year show's Icarus on his "first flight." Thanks again to Eulojio for the fantastic artwork.

Jason Riley: Jason came out again to do the leaderboard for us, taking some of the burden off of us during the hectic points of the tournament. He also stuck around a little longer than he really wanted to on Sunday at my request so that I'd have someone to help at the end. My thanks Jason, I really appreciate it!

Rufus Cathey: A huge thanks to Rufus and AAA for sponsoring the tournament. Rufus is a great guy, and a fellow disc golfer. Many of you met him before, during, or after your rounds, and I'm sure you'd agree. He's not a pushy salesman, but someone who really wants to support the sport. He also helped me bring in the temp baskets on Sunday. We need more people who support the sport, and I can't think of a better guy than Rufus. My sincere thanks to you Rufus!

I'd also like to thank the many people behind the scenes who help out, or offer their support. TJ for getting the CTPs Sunday, Joe Heinen for lending a hand with the canopy Saturday, Mike K, Marci, Blaine & Christi for everything, Jon for helping with the OB lines, and to everyone else who said a kind word, or lended a hand - I thank you.

One last note: A lot of casuals came by to play Highland both days. All of ones I spoke to were very polite and understanding. I don't know if any of them will ever see this, but I wanted to officially say "Thank You" to them on behalf of all the tournament players.

Was there a difference between the course played on Saturday vs Sunday? Looking at the scores, the Saturday course seems to have played a bit easier than Sunday - was Saturday 18 holes and Sunday 20 holes?

That is correct. Saturday was only 18 holes, while Sunday was 20 (we nearly filled all 20 holes on Sunday.)
