Here is the info I emailed to players today, the day before the event.
Hello! Thanks again for registering for Pueblo’s 40th Solstice Soirée. This is going to be an awesome weekend. I just wanted to give you a TD update on the day before the tournament. One huge sponsor just happened this week and came through with a huge donation for all of you, including the pro’s described later!
First I’d like to thank our sponsors! This tournament wouldn’t happen without them Please take time to send them a thank you note or at least visit their website.
Innova Champion Discs
PDub Brewery and Taproom
The Wright Life
Seth Old Time Disc Golf
Gazeebo Disc Golf
DIRECTIONS TO COURSE: It’s about an hour and half from my place in south Denver. The Pueblo exit is 101 off I-25 west to Hywy 50 toward Canyon City. Then after a couple miles turn left onto Pueblo Blvd / highway 42 toward Pueblo Zoo just after the construction on highway 50. The course is just after the Arkansas River on the left side of Pueblo Blvd. Turn into the entrance and parking lot s immediately on the right.
I am currently working on a course map. I got distances and figured out the layout Tuesday evening, but it took until now to have time to sit and draw it all out on a computer. I’m hoping that one of the local club guys will be moving a couple of the baskets into position for the first round later this evening or tomorrow morning.
Weather looks great except Sunday afternoon. Depending on conditions we may move the award ceremony to PDub Brewery in Pueblo West. There are maps to PDub in your players packs and I’ll have extras.
Pro/Am Tee Decision: based on your responses during registration I have gone with the majority decision for the following tee use.
All divisions except FA40, FA3, MA3, and JR will use the Pro tees. That means only FA40, FA3, FA65, MA3, JR will use the am tees.
Also based on majority, all professional divisions will be paid with PayPal not personal check. You will receive payment within 6 hours of event completion and you will receive a statement at the awards ceremony of your winnings.
The players packs were assembled last night and I can tell you that the discs are absolutely gorgeous! We will have beautiful Full Color Rocs, R-Pro XD’s, KC Pro Rocs and Pulsar throwers for sale at tournament central.
- Bring Money for Accuracy Course, Disc Sales and Ace Pool if you did’t get in already. You’re probably going to want to play the Accuracy course a few times. Each round of 10 stations scored will be $10 but remember half of that entry fee goes to Second Chance Wildlife Rehabilitation, the local Pueblo charity this tournament is supporting.
- 10% Discount all weekend and PDub Brewery and Taproom, who is hosting our players party Saturday night.
- All PDGA Rules apply including NO DOGS!
Please feel free to contact me today if you have any problems or questions. I’m very busy but will try to answer as fast as I can.
Oh yeah, that huge sponsor announcement. Nite Ize has donated an LED golf disc for every single one of you including the pros! These are not the regular frisbees they make but actual golf drivers, midrange and putters. You can choose which one you want at check in.
