May 23rd & 24th - First Flight Presented by Axiom Discs - Ams only A-Tier

We've added another course this year. Players will play one round each at The Canyons at Dellwood Park, Highland Park, and Channahon Community Park. Total maximum number of players is 216. This tournament filled early last year, and we had to turn people away, so don't wait too long to register.

Players Pack (so far):

Innova Disc
Latitude64 Disc
Gateway Disc
Salient Liquid Metal Disc
Tournament Poster
Players Guide

Pre-registration is mandatory. We will not be taking walk ups for this tournament. Also, since it's an A-tier, PDGA membership is a requirement. Registration will close on Wednesday, May 20th at 4pm. Of course, if we fill before then, it will close at that time.

Final 9: We will have a final 9 for every division with 12 or more players! The layout has yet to be determined. Check back here for more info at a later date.

Registration fee is $65, which includes $3 for the ace pot, and a $2 online registration fee. Pre-registration is available here: http://www.acesandchains.com/node/21

Of course, you can also register in person at Aces and Chains, 1706 W. Jefferson St., Joliet, IL  815-207-8874. If you register in person, you save the $2 online registration fee. (You can also mail in your registration to the same address.)

Two card sponsors so far:

Gateway Disc Sports
MVP/Axiom Discs

I'm working on getting a third card sponsor. The winner of the card (for each round with a card sponsor) will win a free disc.

Once again, First Flight presented by Axiom Discs is a qualifier for the United States Amateur Disc Golf Championship! Since the USADGC will be held prior to First Flight this year, it will be a qualifier for the 2016 USADGC.

I am very excited to announce that Viridisk will be coming to film the tournament! If you are not familiar with their work, follow this link to their website to check it out: http://www.viridisk.com/

With their unique combination of cameras and angles, I can't wait to see what the tournament coverage will look like.
