Everyone needs to check in at the pavilion. Also, the PDGA is requiring a signed waiver stating we acknowledge the increased risk of COVID-19 by playing in this tournament. Since you all signed up online, you've already signed that waiver.
Regarding COVID-19, please maintain social distancing at all times before, during, and after the tournament. During check-in, please form three lines, and keep at least 6 feet apart in those lines. Three people at a time will be allowed to check in.
After the tournament, amateur players receiving a payout will need to form three lines, as three people will be allowed in the trailer at any one time.
Round 1 tees off at 9. Also, for this tournament, anyone wishing to be in the Turkey Trot will need to keep track of their turkeys on the paper scorecard and make sure to turn it in after the rounds. A turkey is simply getting 3 birdies in a row. For each turkey you get, you receive one throw at a closest to pin for a turkey or ham. There will be several winners.
The official scorekeeping will be at pdga.com/score. The code is WB11. Round 1 player course and hole assignments will be posted shortly after registration closes Friday night at https://www.pdga.com/tour/event/55557. The staff will automatically receive the scores at tournament central. After the first round, you're on your own for lunch. Round 2 SHOULD start at 1, but may change based on last card. There will be an announcement by DGM staff, and round 2 assignments will be posted on the PDGA page.
Rules for the course can be found on my Face Book Pages: Russel Burns, Disc Golf Monkey, or on Ozarks Flying Disc Golf page.
Unbranded CTP is hole 17.
If there is any questions about any throws or lies, try to make a group decision. If no decision can be made, play a provisional. When possible, consult with the course TD to determine the correct answer.
