Leagues & Tourneys / 2020 DISContinuum Club Challenge
« on: February 11, 2020, 06:55:22 AM »
Where: Lemon Lake County Park, Crown Point, IN
When: 8/2/20
Check-in will be 8:00 AM to 9:00 AM.  Tee-off will be right around 9:45 AM (Subject to change)
Cost: Free (J-Town Disc Golf Club will cover any gate fees for J-Town players)
Who: Clubs will include  Basket Cases, Birdbrain, Discontinuum, Fox Valley Metro, Disc Golfer's Union, Skulls, and J-Town. Circle-One will be included as an exhibition club.

If you are interested in playing for team J Town, please post your PDGA # and rating on this post. I would like to have our team roster ready by the end of March at the latest. The highest rated players for each pool will be selected. However, there will be captain picks for each pool. The board members need to discuss this part. Please read all of the info below. You must be a current 2020 J-Town club member. We will have memberships to sell that day, but please try to become a member before the day of the event. Also, please check your schedules to make sure you can play. Every year several players state that they are coming, and then back out a week or two before. A full team is needed to be successful at this challenge, and scrambling to fill spots is a headache I'd rather not deal with.

J-Town Disc Golf Club is looking for club members to commit to this event.  Format will be 2 rounds of singles.  Members will be divided into 4 division (A:945+, B:920-944, C:885-919, and D:<885).  Best 4 finishing positions for each division per round will count towards the club total.  Lowest club total wins.

Field limited to 9 members for each division from each club.  J-Town will decide our roster based on the following: 7 spots will go to the highest rated sign-ups, the other 2 spots in each division will be Captain's choice.

Please reply to this post (PDGA #, Name, and Rating) if you want to represent the J-Town Disc Golf Club.  I will periodically update this post with our roster.  You will need to be a club member to play (we will have memberships available at the event).
