Welcome back to the update train! Forgive our absence last month but between the Glass Blown Open (GBO) and selling a house our committee members flat out took a bogie on the last hole. With that being said we will double up our efforts this month and take a run at the target!
First off, we have found a place for our player’s check in and official welcome event on Thursday evening from 8-9pm. We will be using The Beer Gardens: http://beergardenpei.com/ which is located in downtown Charlottetown (Kent Street). We will be distributing player packs from 630-930pm and will have information on both competition courses and rules for the event. We strongly encourage all players to attend. The player meeting itself is from 8-9pm.
We will also have beer! Not just for Thursday night but a beer made especially for this historic Canadian event. The PEI Brewing Company http://peibrewingcompany.com/ is working on brewing us our own special ‘Nor’easter’. More details will be announced next month.
We are also excited to announce that UDisc Live https://udisclive.com will be covering our event. https://udisclive.com/schedule. Stay up to date with live scores after every hole, follow your friends and keep an eye on the leader boards. After seeing this service live at the GBO we can say without a doubt it is fantastic!
Speaking of the GBO, we were able to pick out some sweet player pack discs and goodies and we very much think you’ll love what we have in store. Let us quash the rumours right now… there are no ZUCA carts in the player packs, but thanks for asking!
One more addition to the Saturday night banquet-we will have a washer toss tournament! Don’t worry if you have never played or even heard of ‘washer toss’ it’s basically like mini disc golf! It’s a Maritime favourite and we know you’ll love it. The first place team will win a set of washer boxes to take home and spread the joy.
We are going to open up registration for the C-Tier Flex Start events in early July just as soon as we close registration for the Nationals. There are only 18 spots left in the Open division so if you know someone sitting on the fence, their time is running out. Wait list spots are still available at no cost to you (just make sure you don’t select any of the ‘Optional Items when you sign up, but you can put that information into the ‘Notes’ field.)
We will be offering a chartered fishing boat trip on Wednesday morning (details on the Nationals Facebook Event page) and an escape room experience on Tuesday evening in Cavendish. Registrations for these will happen on Facebook later this month.
More cottages have just been made available. For information call Benjamin Smith 902.669.0764.
As always we have more goodies in the works to try and give you the best disc golf experience we can provide. Feedback is always welcome either by emailing our TD @ firstname.lastname@example.org or by posting on our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/events/351611005322548/
