    Default 2010 Lexmark Championship

    2010 Lexmark Championship
    http://shadybrookdiscgolf.googlepages.com

    • Sat September 18th, 2010
    • Shadybrook Park (Lexmark campus in Lexington)
    • 2 rounds of 18 holes
    • Open to the general public
    • Player’s Packs for the first 25 people pre-registered
    • Advanced – $25, Intermediate – $20, Recreational – $20, Novice – $15 (add $5 if you register on the day of the tournament)
    • Optional $5 ace pot
    • CTP for each division and one overall
    • More at http://shadybrookdiscgolf.googlepages.com

    The Lexmark Championship is being held to raise money for the United Way of Central Kentucky. We'll have payouts similar to a PDGA C Tier event but this isn't PDGA sanctioned yet.... maybe next year. Top finishers and CTP winners are guaranteed to bring home discs. Details coming to the website soon.

    The course is on the new Legacy Trail walking/biking trail, which opens the weekend before. Cane Run creek has been rehabed and we'll play the front and back 9s as a continuous 18. A good course is quickly becoming a great course.

    I haven't had a chance to play that course yet so I hope I'm free that weekend.

    If you wanna play in the Lexmark Championship and need a room, please say so in this thread and I'll try to negotiate a discounted rate. The "Marriott Courtyard Lexington North" is a few hundred feet from the course. How sweet is that?

    Update...

    Pre-registration is moving faster than expected. We're up to 20 players... so the players packs will be gone really soon.

    Unfortunately, our tees are still natural. There's a pending project to install concrete or rubber tees in 2011.

    The good news is that they'll probably be the best natural tees you'll ever find. Since the course is private (except for this tournament), there's minor wear. And we have two tees per hole... reducing wear even more.

    Feel free to bring cleats if you'd like.

    Our discs arrived today and they look great.

    We have over a hundred of these in a bunch of different colors...
    - ESP Nuke
    - ESP Buzzz
    - Elite Z Stalker
    - Pro D Soft Magnet

    Sneak peak...


    Plus we decided to sweeten to payouts. Like 4 discs and a Discraft sweatshirt for the advanced division winner.

    If you haven't pre-registered yet, re-think that.

    There's been some questions about payouts. Fair enough.

    We're not PDGA sanctioned (hopefully next year) but our goal starting out was to be better than a C-tier payout (85%) and hopefully around a B-tier payout (100%). We're trying to raise something decent for the United Way... but it would be a sad day if we didn't give away some nice plastic and random other good stuff. If 40 players show and we collect an average of $20 per player, that's $800 in. And... I'm estimating that we'd give out (retail wise) slightly more than that $800 figure. So... we may even break the 100% payout mark.

    We ordered over a hundred tourney discs. 25 are for the player's packs. Around 40 or 50ish are for prizes... depending on the turnout ... top half of each division gets at least one disc. And the rest will be available for purchase.

    Did I convince ya?

    Hopefully no one needs convincing as this is a charity event

    I'm looking forward to playing a new course
