AC Finals results are in!

AC Finals

As a thank you to all of you who participated in one of our tournaments this year, we will be running the AC Finals tournament again this year. The cost is only $10 for Ams, $20 for Pros. The format is unique. Players are matched one on one against each other for a full round of golf. The winner advances, and the loser........doesn't. Players who advance are matched up against another advancing player until only one player is left in each division bracket. That player wins all the cash from that bracket.
 
8 Pro players, and 16 Amateur players from each of the four main Am divisions will play in the tournament. The tournament is by invitation only. Invitations are given out to the players with the most PDGA points from Aces and Chains tournaments this year. Pre-registration is not required, but it is the only way to hold a spot.
 
Initially, we will invite 16 Pros, 21 Advanced, 21 Intermediate, 20 Recreational, and 20 Novice players who will be eligible to pre-register. Once each bracket is full, no more registrations will be accepted for that division. Pre-registration is on a first come, first serve basis. So don't wait to pre-register if you get invited. There are more invitations than there are spots in the tournament. If we have spots left we will open it up to day of registration to anyone who played in one of our tournaments this year.
 
The winners of each division will have their names put on a perpetual trophy that will be displayed at the shop. Each year, the new winners will be added. Winners will also receive all the cash from their division. So, if the brackets fill, each winner will receive $160!

Rounds one and two will be at West Park, and the semi-final and final rounds will be at Highland.

Originally scheduled for the 13th and 14th, I am moving the AC Finals to the 20th & 21st so it doesn't conflict with another tournament. First post has been updated to show the new date.

Hopefully this date will stay clear, as it really is the only option until November.

Yep. And Fox Valley is the 21st I do believe but not yet in stone.
It's great to be alive!
Positive mind helps.

That's not going to work.......

Well, I guess it just shows what a great year we've had for disc golf. Tournaments every weekend! It was tough to shoe horn everything in this year, and this is no exception. I guess I'll look over dates and see where else I can put this.....

OK, We're back to the 13th and 14th, with some small changes to prevent any conflict with The Manhattan Project, the tournament Pitner is running at Round Barn.

AC Finals - Oct 13th:

MA1, MA3

AC Finals - Oct 14th:

MPO, MA2, MA4

This should allow most players who want to play both the AC Finals and The Manhattan Project to do so, as the divisions are on opposite days.

First two rounds will still be at West Park on the dates above. If advancing players want to play the semi-finals, and even the finals on that date, we can do that. Otherwise, the semi-finals and final rounds will be played on a date and time convenient to both players.

Re: AC Finals Invitation lists - Pre-reg by 10/10

Scott raised some concerns about having the AC Finals, and his tournament on the same weekend, even with the divisions on different days. There really isn't another weekend open until November 10th, and that's getting pretty deep into the fall season. I don't want to step on anyone's toes, and this is just supposed to be a fun little extra at the end of the year, so.......

We're going to keep it informal like last year. Which means players will be paired up and schedule their round together at whatever date/time that is convenient for both. I will still have a few deadlines:

Oct 10th - After Oct 10th, any spots still available will be open to the public. So if you've been invited, be sure to pre-register by this date. Otherwise, your spot may get taken. Any division that is full after this date can start scheduling their matches.

Oct 11th - Pre-registration opens for non-invited players. Any spots not filled will be up for grabs.

Oct 17th - Last day to register.

Oct 18th - Play starts for divisions whether they are full or not. A division must have at least 4 players. Any division that doesn't will be given refunds.

Just like last year, you'll have up to a week to schedule and complete your round. Winner moves on and gets paired up with another player, and they schedule their next round and so on.

I'll have matchups assigned by the end of day on Thursday, Oct 18th (if not before).

This is the last day that invitational spots are being held. If you don't pre-reg by today, your spot may get taken by someone else. Tomorrow I open the registration up for the masses!

Pre-reg is now open to all players
« Reply #12 on: October 11, 2012, 10:29:44 AM »
Pre-reg is now open to all players. Last registrations will be taken no later than 7pm on Thursday October 17th.

The Pro Open division is cancelled again this year due to lack of interest. This will be an AM only event again this year.

We have spots open in Novice, Rec, Int, and Advanced. Anyone who has played in an Aces and Chains tournament is welcome to register and play in the division they are rated for.

Re: AC Finals Pre-reg open till 10/17.

Last two days to register for this event!

Spots open in Nov, Rec, Int, and Adv.

Seems like a small field so far this year. I'd like to run a decent sized bracket for each division, so I'll sweeten the pot a little if it will get people to come out and play. I'll add a few free discs for the AC Finals Champ in each division. It's only $10 to play, cash in, cash out. Open to ALL PLAYERS now.

This is super easy to play. You don't have to play on a weekend (so you can still play all the tournaments coming up in the next few weeks.) You just have to find a convenient time for you and the person you are matched up with to play one round of golf sometime within 7 days of the matchup assignment.

Again, this is pre-registration only. You must register by tomorrow (Wednesday, 10/17) 7pm. Register in person at Aces and Chains, 1706 W. Jefferson St., Joliet, or online at: http://www.acesandchains.com/node/989

I'm almost ready to hand out the first round matchups. Just need to get a few people to respond back with their phone number, and we'll get it rolling.

If you are on the list below, it means I don't have your phone number. Please call me at 815-993-3472 and leave me a message with your name and phone number:

Joe Mueller
Robert Gibson
Josh Bringas
Ismael Ochoa
Adam Brkovic

As soon as I track these guys down, I'll release the matchups.
