So, I know a lot of you might be thinking "Why go to Rolla, when I can just play the ace race at White Birch?" Well, why not?
Here's the scoop:
Rolla event details: http://www.facebook.com/events/339812636098812/
(1:30pm at Ber Juan Park, show up early to sign in and get some practice throws)
Discraft Ace Race site: http://discgolfacerace.com/
You must pre-register by 8/24 to guarantee entry, and unless you're planning a trip to Rolla before then that means a phone call to the Rolla City Parks Front Desk staff at 573-341-2386. Note, too, that the guys down there have gotten a sponsor to provide a separate prize pack for a junior division.
Now the added BONUS. If you haven't yet played the Lion's Club course in Rolla, it is an excellent, challenging course, and a lot of fun to play. Immediately following the Ace Race (which goes very quickly), I am organizing an informal event at the Lion's Club course. Right now I am thinking a tag shuffle with optional cash for payout.
I would like to gauge interest in this thread, so please let me know if you are planning to go, and if you are interested in the bonus event. I know a few folks at the Schroeder league are talking about driving down for this. If it looks like the crowd is going to be very big, I would want to talk to the Rolla Lion's Club before the hordes descend, so please give me as much feedback as you can.
