The Club Championships are this weekend! We will have 1 round of 27 holes to determine the 2011 Club Champion. You must be a 2011 member to play on Saturday. Entry is FREE to 2011 members in good standing. Limited members pay $10 for Saturday and non members pay $20. Saturday is a mandatory Tag Shuffle so do not leave your tag at home! Replacement tags are $10. We have an Arch Cable Trophy for the winner (similar to the St Louis Open Trophy). Saturday’s tags may be picked up on Sunday at Sioux Passage or may be picked up from your Course Captain at your convenience. We will write your name on tape on the tags. 2011 tags are honored through the end of the year, Dec 31st.
There will be kegs of Schlafly beer both Saturday and Sunday. Jose Kimbrow is preparing food on both days for a nominal charge. Jose has been supplying our tournaments all year and we are very happy with his service.
The Club Championships is our membership tournament/party to end and start the year. You play for bragging rights and tags. The results will be posted on the website. Thank you for joining the club and supporting disc golf in St Louis and the surrounding area. Through your support we have invested over $10,000 in our parks this year.
Sunday’s Club Championships are held at Sioux Passage and will be 2 rounds of 18 holes. The entry fee is the cost of renewing for 2012. The $25 fee gets you a low tag to start the year, a premium disc from Discraft, full payout at RCF leagues, discounts on club merchandise, raffle ticket for disc golf baskets, preferred pricing at tournaments, eligibility for the club Ace Pool and the best benefit of all; supporting the game you play for free all year.
As an added benefit for 2012 members, we are offering shirts at our cost with the STLDGC logo. We have collared dry fits as well as dry fit tees and cotton tees. Shirts are restricted to one per person that weekend so that more people may get a shirt. Orders for additional shirts will be taken and payment must be made at the time of the order.
The Club Ace Pool is in effect and buy-in is optional, $2 each day. There is no entry fee and no payout; therefore we are making the Ace Pool participation optional. The first Ace Pool is capped at $500 and pays out at 100%. The second Ace Pool has $232 and pays out at 75%. All the Ace Pool money collected from this weekend will go into the second Ace Pool until it gets capped at $500. Then a third Ace Pool will begin. The second Ace Pool pays out at 75% until $125 is in the third Ace Pool; at which time the second Ace Pool will pay out at 100%.
As always there is one Ace Pool per event. If multiple Aces are hit on Saturday, the first Ace Pool gets split up. If no one hits an Ace on Saturday, it rolls to Sunday.
We will have a throw-off for a portable basket and other swag including tags 419, 420 and 421, discs, clothing, etc similar to the event at the Endicott Open; $1 per throw, 3 throws for $2, 10 throws for $5.
I look forward to seeing you all both days. You may also renew for 2012 on Saturday; pick out your disc and buy a shirt. Only renewing members may buy a shirt that weekend at our cost.
