The ace race is probably the most newbie friendly organized event out there. You only throw one disc per hole. You record an ace, metal, or you record nothing. That means even if your disc goes crazy wild, you score what most people scored on the hole.
Everyone will be throwing the same disc they have just received.
It's a zippy, small-diameter midrange. Slightly overstable with great glide... think Buzzz Junior. Will hold a line in a moderate headwind, but isn't crazy overstable or too tough to handle at slow speeds or in calm conditions. It sounds like a great disc! Get it and use it in our One Disc Challenge in November.
This event has a flex start. That means that you can get there, show up, and play some time between 1:00 and 3:00.
Last year, meet-up member Tracy won the ace race at Old Settlers and got a bag of discs to show for it. Way to go Tracy!
Rules of play:
Players are required to use the player package discs, and only these discs. If a disc is lost, the player has the option of using the second disc from the package. Only one throw per player per hole. Groups of up to eight players are generally acceptable, depending on course, time of day and TD discretion. Each player should have their own scorecard and mark "A" for aces and "M" for holes on which they hit metal.
After all players in the group have thrown, discs are picked up and the group moves directly to the next tee. Players keep their scorecards for round two, using the next line on the card to record the round.
The player with the most aces after 36 holes is declared the winner. In case of ties, the number of metal hits is used as a tie breaker. If a tie persists, a closest to the pin contest is then used to determine the event winner.
Grand prize for each event is a Discraft merchandise package, including a bag and ten premium discs. Events are also encouraged to offer an optional cash side pot for those who wish to participate, which is divided proportionally among the number of aces and/or metal hits.
