11th Annual Denver Classic

Update2 Aug14, 2014: I have called everyone who registered but the Joe Rovere clinic has been cancelled. he is hurt and needs an MRI. I really apologize. We will be selling some of the custom 11th Denver Classic tournament stamped discs as fundraisers. All monies will go back into the tournament. We also will be having a raffle with some of the nicest custom stamped discs as well as polos, discs, etc.

Conrad Meyer will be shooting professional pictures of EVERYONE, the first round at GVR on Saturday and also the sunday round at Badlands. He is making prints of the first round pics for all the amateurs, as part of their players package. Matt the TD will have those when you turn in your card after Sunday’s round. The Pro’s can purchase their print for $10.

There are special tournament fundraiser discs sponsored by Victor Malafronte, PDGA #002. That’s right, Ed Headrick was #001, and Victor #002 is helping out our tournament! However I don’t want to publicize what these special frisbee’s are. So please email me if you are interested in a very special adults only fundraiser discs that’s really a steal at $40 each. mattcdsa@gmail.com So remember to bring some cash with you to this tournament for some extra goodies!

 

 

The summer BADCO classic is back and this time we are focusing on making this tournament accessible to beginners, ladies and juniors. We will have discounted entry fees, a beginners clinic with 4 time Colorado State Champion Joe Rovere Friday Night as well as different course layouts for beginners, ladies and junior divisions. We will be using the Green Valley Ranch course near 40th and Tower Road by the airport on Saturday and then the Badlands course at Camenisch Park on Sunday. Green Valley Ranch is a great new course that will have plenty Out-of-Bounds areas to challenge the experienced players, but open enough to not intimidate beginners, ladies and juniors. Players packages for all amateur divisions will include at least a custom tournament stamped disc and a personal professional photograph by Conrad Meyer.

Online Registration is available here.

SPONSORS SO FAR:
Innova Discs
B.C. Surf and Sport
Hyland Hills Park and Recreation District
Lil Ceasars Pizza

IMPORTANT NOTE: We can’t have any money change hands at the Green Valley Ranch course as part of the park regulations. Therefor we will not have ANY day-of registrations at all! Please register for your division and any Ace Pool, WFDF Accuracy Contest and Clinic options through the Online Registration before the cutoff midnight 11:59pm Wednesday August 13, 2014.

Here is the current schedule as of now.

Friday, August 15, 2014 6:00pm: Disc Golf clinic given by 4 time Colorado State Champion Joe Rovere at Green Valley Ranch DGC

Saturday, August 16, 2014 8:00am: 1st and 2nd Rounds of 18 holes each round at Green Valley Ranch DGC with lunch break in between. There are a lot of restaurants close by around 35th and Tower Road.

Sunday, August 17, 2014 9:00am: 3rd Round of 27 holes at the Badlands DGC at Camenisch Park.

We will be enhancing the frisbee fun of a tournament with a separate Accuracy competition setup to WFDF standards using Zephyr discs that we will provide. We will probably have a Safari Final9 for those divisions that want to play it, which is a huge course setup for gigantic big throws, like tee 4 to basket 7 at Badlands for example. Feel free to leave a comment below or email mattcdsa@gmail.com with any questions.

Here is the PDGA Event page with registered players and results.

11thDC Update1 August 11, 2014

We still have 29 spots available. There can’t be any money exchanged at the GVR course because of park rules. Therefor we will not do any day-of registrations, even for Ace Pool or WFDF Accuracy. So please make sure to get registered online before the cutoff this coming Wednesday, August 13 at 11:59pm.

We could use some spotter volunteers. At the Green Valley Ranch course they would be more traffic cops for some cross over holes. However at Badlands we could use up to 10 people to help spot where discs go in the woods and keep the flow going, instead of players taking time to look for lost discs. Please email me if you are interested in helping out. mattcdsa@gmail.com

THE DOUBLES ON FRIDAY EVENING IS CANCELLED. I couldn’t justify the $260 permit the Denver wanted just for doubles and we only have 8 people registered for the Joe Rovere clinic. So please feel free to practice the courses on your own throughout the week.

The Ace pool is $3 for three rounds. Basically one pool for each round. If someone hits an ace in the first round, they get one third of the ace pool. If nobody hits one in the first round, that third of the ace pool will push to the second round and then push to third round if not hit in the second round. I’m guessing we may have aces at least one of the first two rounds, if not both. If we are left with only one third of the original ace pool for Sunday, we will probably open it to all players who want in at Badlands. If nobody hits an ace in the first two rounds and those two-thirds of the ace pool end up pushing into Sunday, then to be fair we will not open the ace pool to anyone except those who registered for all 3 rounds ace pool online.

If you have registered already but did not select the ace pool or WFDF Accuracy and decided that you want in, please email me at mattcdsa@gmail.com and we can work out how to pay me through PayPal before the event.

I have setup the junior/rec course at the GVR course. There are four holes with separate tees for the junior/rec divisions that will help course flow. 2: 129ft 8: 270ft 9: 250ft 17: 198ft They’re shorter but still challenging. So basically the Green Valley Ranch course is all set for the tournament. There might be a mando on hole 18.

Badlands baskets are currently setup for the tournament except for holes 3-5 in the Blair Witch. We are modifying the layout so we don’t have to go down to the wetness around old BW hole 5. Still working on how many holes will be modified at the Badlands for the junior/rec divisions. However we will indeed be using the separate pro tee’s for holes 12 and 17 at Badlands for the pro and advanced divisions.

There will be course maps coming soon. Generally for pro and advanced divisions, all sidewalks and beyond will be OB at the GVR course. Holes 13 & 14 have a cement ditch which is the same OB and beyond. Tried to mark the corner on 14 but need bigger flags. Hole 2 will be a mando around the left of the tennis courts from everyone. Badlands doesn’t really have OB except the fence line to the west along hole 4 and the south along holes 8-11. Obviously the lakes and running water at Badlands will be OB.

We will be having an additional fun frisbee event, the WFDF Accuracy setup. Each player uses 4 zephyr discs from 7 different stations with different angles ranging from 44 to 103 feet. Playing with Zephyr discs we are providing, you get one point for every disc though the 5′x5′ target. This probably won’t be setup until Saturday morning, but we’ll have it available on Sunday at Badlands too, for those who didn’t register for it online and want to play.

More info later. Feel free to email or call me with questions.

Course layout: Holes are generally between 180 and 250 feet (55 to 75 meters).

Entry fee: $25

Player package: Guaranteed to be at least twice the value of your entry fee! The 2012 player pack included two identical Discraft prototype discs made especially for Ace Race, plus a SuperColor mini, sunglasses, a sticker and a sweet water bottle for every player. More than a $50 value!

Rules of play: Players are required to use the player package discs, and only these discs. If a disc is lost, the player has the option of using the second disc from the package. Only one throw per player per hole. All players should have their own scorecards and mark “A” for aces (a hole-in-one) and “M” for holes on which they hit metal.

After all players in the group have thrown, discs are picked up and the group moves directly to the next tee. Players keep their scorecards for round two, using the next line on the card to record the round. The player with the most aces after 36 holes is declared the winner. In case of ties, the number of metal hits is used as a tie breaker. If a tie persists, a closest to the pin contest is then used to determine the event winner.

Note: Double Ace Race in full as of today. 9/4/2013 thanks to all who signed up.

Permits for Events

BY Chainz

I don’t know if everyone realizes it or not, but whenever you hold an event at a disc golf course in a public park you need to get the proper permit.
If you don’t, you are putting the course at risk of being pulled !
These courses are hard enough to get and to get them paid for.
So no matter whether it is a tournament or a fundraiser or a charity event you do need to follow park rules.
Most times if you tell the park that it is for charity it may not cost you anything.
I know that if you call Ronnie when you are putting on an event at Badlands, White Hawk, Paco, or any of the other Badco courses he will help you get what you need and will try to get it at no cost.
So, in conclusion please help us to maintain a good relationship with Parks and Rec.
Do things the right way and everyone will benefit.

King of The Mountain on Thunder Mountain / Story and Results

The third annual King of the Mountain fundraiser was a great success in my opinion. We had a great group of people come out to support the camp and the course. The Saturday morning doubles was a blast with only a 1 stroke difference determining the winners with a 6, and three groups had a tie with 5. Ronnie Ross presented the first place winners Ron Whitehead & Brett Marshall with their trophies and money. Both Ron and Brett donated their winnings back to the camp and course. There were 9 teams in all and the round took 4 and half hours to play.

There were 4 bands playing great music all day. Which could be heard all across the mountainside. Americorps came up to help for the day, which was a blessing. You might recall that BADCO had done a fundraiser for Americorps last year, at the City of Cuernavaca park in downtown Denver for the Hunger Fling.

After, and during, the doubles match the King of the Mountain tournament was going strong with groups of people teeing off all day long. Last years winner (name) won this year as well with an amazing 8 in the Advanced division, and with a 2 stroke handicap it was a 10 that took the trophy. The only Ace on the day belonged to Brett Stipitich He was the winner of the Tag Tournament as well and went home with a new disc bag for the Ace, tag #3, and a trophy.

All of the BADCO members that were in attendance were treated to a beautiful lodge to stay in and delicious food prepared by Ronnies wife, Tommie Ross. There were 3 players parties going on all at once, two at campsites and one at the lodge. Rod Baca graced the upper camp fire circle with some magnificent drum playing and singing of Native American song. Mark Steputis brother David also joined in with some drum playing and his friend Richard was on the guitar. Now this was camping at its finest!

All in all the excellent weather provided for a great tournament and a wonderful time at night, with great people coming in from all over the state. This, in my opinion, is what disc golf is all about; fun; friends; and doing good for others in the process. So I thank each and every one who took the time to come out and support a great cause and help make what will soon be the best course in the state, if not the country.

Check out all the great event photos
