And so it begins! Our association has won the right to host the Canadian Disc Golf National Championship at Hillcrest Farms Disc Golf Course (plus some surprises of course). It’s only fitting that we use, in our opinion, Canada’s best course, to showcase Canada’s sweetest spot (that’s right west coast I said it, the Maritimes are sweeter then you, even with snow). We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to host this event and give the wider disc golf audience a chance to see what we’re playing with here, while at the same time showing our players what the word of disc golf looks like. We have already had some top Pros commit to playing our event and we have so many surprises for the traveling player that i’m considering moving away just so I can come home for this.
For now lets keep it simple. The event will be from Sept 14-16, 2018 with the main events happening in Bonshaw PEI. If you need help travel (plane tickets etc.) we have an agency for that! Call our friends at The Travel Store, toll free at that! 1 800 565 5404. As for lodging we have Lord’s Seaside Cabins onboard to host as many players as possible so you will want to touch base with Elayne (Lord) as soon as you can.
We will also be hosting a Saturday night banquet there open to all players for all divisions (friends can come but there will be a fee for non-players). The entire week will be filled with disc golf goodies, doubles events from Monday-Thursday, a C-tier flex start on Thursday, and the opening of a brand new permanent course on the island (more details to come but I can already tell you’re excited!!). If you have ever been on the fence of making the trip east (or north) this is as much of a tipping point as I can make for you.
The first Monday of every month from here on out will also feature news and a fundraiser draw so keep you eyes peeled. Other than that get practising we want ya’ll at your best.
