Good news, bad news. The MVP Circuit Challenge originally planned for tomorrow has been pushed back two weeks to the 23rd. The discs aren’t here.
So that’s the bad news, the good news is that the big prize this year will be a MVP Black Hole Pro basket. We’ll be playing 18-24 holes at Quilchena (depending on basket conditions), and there’s an $5 optional “Macro Challenge” using a Macro Tesla, MVP’s entry into the large mini category.
We’ve got a lot of events coming up in the next few weeks, here’s a quick chronological summary:
Robert Burnaby Ace Race – Aug 27
This one is in conjunction with Ramham Entertainment who are running the show, we’re just support. There are 34 people pre-registered so far, with 7 spots available. Day of registration will be $40 instead of the pre-registration $35. You can register now.
Format: depending on weather and course conditions we will be playing the 10 recreational pads, followed by 10 additional holes using either the recreational pads or the alternate pads. If course conditions/weather make some of the alternate pads inappropriate those holes will either be skipped or played from the recreational pads. We will not be playing a second round, although if participants are interested we can do a break and reseed people after the first 10 holes.
There has been a shipping hiccup, which means that the MVP Circuit discs will be here on time, but the restocking order with lots of other goodies will not arrive until Tuesday.
The Disc Cellar is pleased to announce that we will be hosting an MVP Circuit event at Robert Burnaby on Sunday, 25 Sep 2016 with player pack distribution starting at 10am, and the event starting approximately 10:30am.
For your $35 entry fee you get 3 discs (putter, midrange and driver) and an opportunity to take home one of the big prizes. Division prizes will depend on the normal divisions of those who register, but we expect to offer at least 3 prizes: Top Pro, Top Amateur and Top Woman. We may also have additional categories: Junior, Recreational, etc… depending on participation.
We will play 18-20 holes to determine the winners. There may be additional side events. Register through our online store.
Even if you cannot attend you can purchase a player's package.
Day of registration will be available if we still have packages left, but will cost $40.
There’s still space, so you can register online today, or just show up tomorrow. It’s a go rain or shine. Grand prize winner gets a sweet gold metal champion disc (actually metal), additional prizes will be given out some through skill, some through draws and other pseudo random methods.
Also restocked MVP and Axiom, you can expect them to be inventoried by the end of the weekend, but they’ll be out tomorrow. Included: metal minis, all the stock MVP/Axiom minis, 3 LED disc lights and more.
