Welcome to the CBU Flickline tour stop number 2 brought to you by Play it Again Sports St. John's.
This is our first ever event at the Cape Breton University Campus and we are excited to show off what we have been building here.
This years tournament course will play almost identical to the standard course listed on Udisc here. There are 2 minor differences; first hole #1 will be an island with a drop zone marked on the left and all Open divisions and MA1 will tee off from a temp 'long' tee pad on hole 1. If a player does not successfully land their drive on the island they will proceed to play from the drop zone, then follow regular OB rules should they go OB again on the hole.
Hole 4 and 17 will have the stream play as OB, this will all be marked with rope (or string).
Players should check in at the Discmania tent near the warm up area 20 minutes prior to their posted tee time.
We will have PDGA live scoring - Password is FLICK
Chain Reaction Disc Golf will be on site selling discs near the warm up area.
Bathrooms are located in the student union building and near hole 10. There will also be a water station. Players are encouraged to bring their own water bottle and asked to not leave any trash on the course.
We will once again have the Top Link 2k challenge. To enter players must pay $2 per round and if they hit an ace on hole 18 they will win a $2000 credit with Top Link.
There are custom trophies for the division winners made by Colin Rogers.
We have some additional prizes for 2nd and 3rd in each division.
As always if you win your card on the final day you win a prize.
Payouts will be posted on the check in table Saturday morning for the MPO division.
A couple other noteworthy items. This event has representation from all 4 Atlantic Canadian Provinces. It brings us a lot of joy to know people are traveling to play these events and we are thankful for that. To celebrate we are having a players party on campus at the Pit Lounge Saturday night from 7-9. There will be putting games, prizes, and free food for all the players come and join us as we hope to celebrate together.
Also Cape Breton Disc Golf has been growing steadily over the last few years and one amazing member of the local team is putting on a glow round on Friday night. Take it from Kenny himself :
"Community Chest Builder - A fan of glow rounds, helping build disc golf, great prizes, high fives and or not limited to smiles?? Look no further, come join the Community Chest Builder Friday evening, 9:00pm at the New Waterford Course. The entry is lightly used plastic: as much or little as you wish, Kenny at parkside disc golf is building his community chest of discs for free use to new players. The contest is a glow doubles scramble, prizes for best cards and two Closest To Pins. Players may register upon arrival to the course on Friday. This should be a blast of a time to meet and play with new players, the proceeds will create a lot of positive experiences for locals here, they thank you and the disc golf community thanks you in advance for your generosity.
