    That's good because it means less driving for me if I get to go to Seviren two days and only one to Vettiner. Plus, that Sunday (final round) is Ivy's birthday and that would get me home quicker.) My only rub now is the other thing I have going on that weekend. The guys I play music with generally do one or two "gigs" a year, and one of them is the Saturday of Labor Day weekend. If we don't get a late slot I won't be able to play in the tournament.

    Is there an official forum thread for this event? Does anyone expect this tourny to fill? I've never been to Kentucky/Indiana and am looking foward to meeting you all and playing your courses.

    I live really close to Charlie Vettiner park. That is my home course and I can hold my own there. I shot a 62 (902 rating), a 63 (892 rating), and a 66 (863 rating) in the 2012 CVO. My current rating is 885. I really want to play in the US Masters but fear I might embarrass myself (and hold up my group) at Seviren Lang. Am I good enough to play in the US Masters?

    I understand that I need to take the PDGA Certified Officials Exam? Is there anything else I need to do to qualify to play in the US Masters? Also, I have a couple of friends that don't have a PDGA # and have never played in a PDGA sanctioned tournament. Would they need to play in at least one tournament to qualify or can they just get a PDGA #, take the exam, and pre-register?

    Now a couple of questions about pre-registration. Which division should I pre-register for? I played as an "Intermediate" in the 2011 CVO, got smoked, and stepped back down to the REC division where I placed 7th in 2012. Looking at the website, I gather my choices (at 43 years of age) are Pro Master Men $160 and Advanced Master Men $100. I am obviously going to select the lower of the two divisions which is Advanced Master Men. Now, how does that translate on the DiscGolfU WebSite? Am I an MM1? Of the 18 people in that division, I recognize a few names from the REC division of the 2012 CVO. I think I am an MM1 but if one of you could verify, I could get on with my pre-registration. Thanks!

    David, you are correct; mm1 is advanced masters. I haven't heard anything about being required to test before playing. I've registered and I have not tested. My scores are about the same at sl. I don't think you'll embarrass yourself. In fact, anyone who can ride that "bike" I see you ride is already ahead of the pack when it comes to extraordinary feats. Who cares what you score....you can ride the one wheeled giant.

    The word "advanced" is what frightened me. As I said, I generally play in the REC division. I figured MM1 was probably the lowest (which is where I need to be) division as the majority of the people (18 the last time I checked) who pre-registered selected that division. The REC players (myself included) are going to have to step up their (our) game!

    It's true! The test can be purchased on the PDGA site. Click on Pro Shop then on PDGA store. I think (someone correct me if I'm wrong) this is the link.

    Does anyone have any insight on this? Do they have to play in at least one tournament to qualify for the US Masters? I'm not sure which one of them started that rumor but it's got all of them spooked.

    Thanks for all your replies! I want to have all my ducks in a row before I start a FB group to try and get my Northern Kentucky mates to come down here to play. It's tough to drag them away (and rightfully so) from Idlewild.

    He is also correct in the fact that you must take to officials exam before this tourney.
