We here in the Maritimes have been gifted with a warm and relatively snow free February. The maple syrup is flowing and the discs are flying! The spring disc golf season is right around the corner and we want to see the competition at its best. After all, registration for Nationals opens up March 18th at 1pm Eastern Time. Sign up early and tell your friends.
We have a couple of huge announcements for this month:
First off, our national championships this year will be a qualifier for the 2018 United States Disc Golf Championship in Rock Hill, South Carolina! The top-5 players who have not already qualified will earn their rights to play in this prestigious international event. As our qualifier will be one of the final ones prior to the USDGC, play well in PEI and you’ll have a great chance to get in.
Nationals Disc Golf Week is rounding nicely into shape with more to do for the travelling player every day. We just got news that Central Coast Disc Golf (CCDG) will be filming an edition of their popular “Champs vs Chumps” series on the Hillcrest course. There will be spots available to play and lots of room to watch. More details will follow in the weeks to come.
If you want to know some of the top-rated players who are attending our “A” Tier, check out these player profiles that we’ve been working on:
Lastly our association (MDGA) has published its “Majors” calendar for 2018, check it out here on Facebook:
Our team has been working hard behind the scenes to make this the best event our country has ever seen and now it’s almost your turn to show your support, sign up, and come experience what the Maritimes has to offer. If you can’t play but wish to volunteer next months update will include instructions on how to do just that. But for now lets get ready to make this thing fly.
