Supporting, Enhancing and Promoting Disc Sports Throughout Colorado.
16 qualifiers and 16 invitees make up the list of 32 participants in the 2014 NoCo Match Play Invitational, a club fundraising event taking place next month. Match play begins August 1st, and runs throughout the month, culminating with a final match that crowns the winner.
Didn't get into the tournament this year? Not to worry! You can participate by getting in the action in other ways.
The qualifiers earned their berth based on their performance at the July 22nd Edora Summer League, and the invitees were chosen by the co-tournament directors based on club support/involvement, skill level and availability. For fairness, the pairings were randomly drawn from a hat, but the player with the lower PDGA rating determines the course to be played. A player whose opponent has a good short-game but doesn't throw far might choose a long course, and vice-versa.
While the lower-seeded player gets to choose the course, they are limited to the following NoCO course options. An 18 hole-minimum course length must be specified, so shorter courses must consist of multiple rounds:
This is going to be Epic! (Pun intended..)
The players have been seeded based on their player rating, and the bracket pool is open until August 1st. Stop by the Wright Life to fill out a bracket, then watch the results roll in as the matches take place. You can work on your bracket at home before dropping it off by downloading a copy here:
