That "Dam" Series

North Bonneville 2013 Spring Series AKA “That Dam Series”


What it is: A little friendly competition added on top of the three PDGA sanctioned events at North Bonneville Disc Golf course this spring.

Which Tournaments are you talking about: Bonneville Bare Bones - March 17th, NW Contender - April 6th-7th, and Ring of Fire - May 18th. All three events are PDGA sanctioned and available for sign up at www.4DiscGolf.com

Where’s North Bonneville: It is located in Washington, less than an hours drive from most of Portland. Check out the course web site at http://www.nbdga.org

What will I win: Besides the prestige of knowing that you are one of the best players at North Bonneville there will be a major award presented to the winner and second place in each of eight divisions. There will also be a small prize for the winners and several prizes for “tournament director’s choice” awards. (We reserve the right to give bigger prizes if we get some major sponsors to join us!)

What does it cost to join: There is no additional fee to be a part of the series. Tournament Directors for each event are deducting one dollar from each player towards the series awards. So your only cost is the event fee to participate. But you were going to pay that anyway weren’t you.

How will you determine the winners: Using sophisticated high tech devices called computers we will gather the PDGA round ratings for every round in the three tournaments. We will then find the best 4 rounds for each player and use addition to give you a score for those rounds. We will then compare that score with the other players in your division and the top two players will be winners.

I can’t count very well, how many events do I need to play in to qualify: Since two of the events are one day  events with two rounds each, and the other event is a two day event with a total of three rounds you will need to play in a minimum of 2 events to qualify to win. The advantage being the more rounds you play the greater the chance of having 4 good or great rounds to use for your final score.

What if I play in more than one division (Bagger Rule): Your division will be the division you played in the most. If there is a tie, you will be moved to the highest division you played

New Course Approved for Canby, Oregon!

What: 
The City of Canby, Oregon has approved a 12 hole course for the north end of Eco Park. The course is designed with the intermediate player in mind, but will be playable by beginners, as well as being enjoyed by more advanced players. Nine of the twelve holes are fairly heavily wooded while the other three are in an open field. The terrain is predominantly flat, with a little bit of undulation to add some variety to the greens. The holes are mostly on the shorter side in the mid 200s with a couple holes under 200 and a couple over 300.
