I would sign up for this but I really would prefer to play the longs in the Grand master division. I can't believe as a pro anything you would want to play the shorts. I have played McNaughton several times from the longs and they are no worse than any top calibur course's longs. That's why they call them "long". By definition play in any pro division means you have the ability (though execution is sometimes difficult) to play any length or difficulty of hole. This is an "A" tier event, the course is meant to be long and difficult.

I would like to sign up too, but with that much added cash and such a huge percentage of it going to MPO, I'm over it.

Peyton, I talked to another Grand Master and they are okay with the Longs. I am happy to listen to the people. If you guys want the Longs you can have the longs! It certainly doesn't bother me. Consider it changed!

Sounds good - we have a nice contingent of people coming down from Minnesota and signing up in the next week as well so its shaping up to be a big event.

Please note that the course order has officially changed and I have reflected this in the first post. This will be the final course order and there will be no further revisions or discussions about longs, shorts, courses, etc.

Group 1 : All Pros - McNaughton Shorts, McNaughton Longs, Morton Mixed (FPO will play McNaughton shorts both rounds)
Group 2: MAI, FW1, MM1, MG1, MA3 - Bradley, Morton Short, McNaughton (MA1 will play McNaughton from the Longs - all other divisions in this flight will play the shorts)
Group 3: MA2, FW2, FW3, MA4, MS1 - Morton Short, Bradley, Bradley

In addition, for a quick update on the Putting Competition: the putting competition is free to anyone in the event who pays to get into the CTP and 50/50, which is $5. This gets you in the putting competition, CTP prizes during the tournament, and the cash 50/50 holes (we expect to have 9 50/50 cash holes throughout the tournament). Anyone that wants to try the competition that's not playing can pay $3 to give it a shot. Also, players are allowed more than one chance at the putting competition by paying an extra $3. Here are the prizes for the LIS: Putting Competition sponsored by ABC Discs taking place on September 13th from 4PM to 8PM:

Pro 1st Place - huk Chair, Eric McCabe Ti Wasp, and Flyboy Aviation Gummy Roc
Pro 2nd Place - 3 ABC Discs of your choice
Am 1st Place - Eric McCabe Ti Wasp, Flyboy Aviation Gummy Roc, Vibram Open Black/Red Summit
Am 2nd Place - 3 ABC Discs of your choice
Women 1st Place - Eric McCabe Ti Wasp, Flyboy Aviation Gummy Roc, Vibram Open Black/Red Ridge
Women 2nd Place - 3 ABC Discs of your choice

You read that right....Vibram Open Black/Red Summits and Ridges! We will have a limited number of the 2012 Vibram Open Black/Red Ridges, Summits, and Ibex's. We will have them for sale for $25 starting at the putting competition. If you want to reserve yours email me at nate@ledgestonegrp.com

In addition, huk lab has come on board as a course sponsor for the series. They have been a great benefit to our series! We have a limited number of huk chairs for sale and these will be cash only sales with the proceeds going towards the series. Email me to reserve your chair. The regular chairs are $36 and the red chairs are $39 and we will have those at the putting party as well. We will also have some awesome huk shirts, hats, minis, patches, and more!

We are also getting a new stock of Innova inventory for the series, including Ch CFR Teedevils, Echo Star Destroyers, Echo Star Wraiths, more Blizzard Boss's, Star Leopards, Star Teebirds, Champion Destroyers, and more!

We also just got a new order of Innova Competition and Discarrier bags in and they will be available at the A Tier for a discounted price.

Also, thanks to Cefcu for coming on board as a sponsor!

Pre-registrations are nearing 135. Please note that we have a limited number of AM spots and only the first 142 AMs are guaranteed a players pack. In addition, you must register by August 31st to get the LAT disc to be included in the players pack.

For a quick update on the tourney - please remember that only the first 142 AMS signed up and paid by August 31st get the extra LAT disc in their players packs. We have less than 40 players packs left and we expect a lot of registrations the next few days. Get signed up! Here is as picture to the LAT discs in the players packs:

Those Pains are amazing! Remember that you can pick up your players packs and your pairings at the Putting Competition on Thursday night. As you can see from the picture the LAT discs that we have are Havocs, Pains and Flows.

Also, we are happy to announce Aces and Chains as a hole sponsor for the tournament. Check out their website! What an awesome disc golf shop: http://www.acesandchains.com/

Pre-registration list has been updated - this event will fill!

152 players and counting for the A Tier. Remember that you have to be signed up by tomorrow night to be guaranteed everything in the AM players packs. I will also take money at the ABC Discs Open Saturday at McNaughton if you pay before the tourney starts but this is the last opportunity to guarantee the extra LAT disc. We will still have registration open after tomorrow but this tourney is going to fill up! We have under 35 AM players packs left. If you sign up after this date you will get LIS bucks and the VP putter.

We are nearing 160 registrations for the A Tier. I will be taking registration money tonight at the Glow tournament and tomorrow at the ABC Discs Open.

I know of at least 10 more people signing up today and tomorrow so get signed up! We will leave paypal open until the tournament is full but the last day to register will be Wednesday September 12th at 7PM. Pairings will be finalized later that night and will be available at the putting competition the next day. Anyone dropping out of the tournament will receive a players pack. Remember that only the first 142 AMS are guaranteed a players pack so we only have around 30 guaranteed players packs left.

For an update on the CTP and 50/50 prizes: we will have 27 CTP prizes throughout the tournament and 9 Cash 50/50 holes. It is $5 total to get in the CTP fund (which includes the 50/50) and this also gets you into the putting competition where we will have some awesome prizes. You can pay for the CTP on Thursday at the Putting Competition or before you start your round Friday morning.

Also, some people have been asking for a clarification on the layout of the courses. If you are playing Morton Shorts, you will play the short concrete tees. If you are playing Mixed Morton Shorts, you will play Holes 4, 7, 8, 14, and 16 from the longs. Right now holes 4 and 7 have concrete and our intention is to get 8, 14, and 16 done in the next ten days. Even if we don't get the concrete poured on these long holes you will still play these holes from the longs.

As for McNaughton, this is more straightforward. If you are playing the Long Tees at McNaughton you will play the long tees....period. The only exception is that on hole 9, you will play the alternate long tee over the lake without a concrete tee. Hole number 9 is the only long tee that will not be used. If you are playing McNaughton shorts, you will play the ORIGINAL design. You will not play the "extra short" tees on hole 4, 7, 13, and 18. We will have this clearly marked with spray paint but if you are playing McNaughton Shorts you will play the Original McNaughton design, of which most people are familiar with.

Bradley will be very straightforward as there is only one set of tees. We will be slightly tweaking the basket locations and that will be finalized next week.

I will also be posting the raffle items later next week, but we have so many items that it takes more than three word documents to contain! We will have baskets, hats, bags, shirts, discs, umbrellas, huk chairs, hotel giveways, maui jim sunglasses....and more and more and more. When we say baskets we mean four baskets! When we say shirts we mean A LOT of shirts. We have a TON of stuff to raffle!

We are nearing 175 registrations for the A Tier.

We do still have spots left but make sure to get signed up soon. We still have AM players packs left (but not very many) so if you want to guarantee yourself a players pack you will want to get signed up this week. I will be at Bradley this weekend taking registrations/money as well.

Remember that we will be having our putting competition on September 13th from 4PM to 8PM at 1142 Peoria Street in Washington, IL. You will be able to check in, get your pairings, pick up your players packs, buy some awesome merchandise at reduced prices, buy some unique discs (Eric McCabe Ti Wasps, Flyboy Aviation Rocs, Vibram Open Black/Red stamped discs, huk merchandise, and more), get some awesome free snacks, and compete in the putting competition.

In addition, the first 30 people at the putting competition that spend $40 will get a free disc from our sponsor ABC Discs! Remember that we will have special pricing on LIS stamped discs with cash sales, including $12 for Star Plastic and $11 for Champion plastic.

Greg and I are working at Morton this week to pour the last few concrete pads for the long tees that we will be using. At Morton and McNaughton we will be indicating the pad you are playing with an L for long, S for short, and S/L (meaning that tee is for both the shorts and longs).

Also, check out the following link for our sweet trophies that we have for the A Tier and Series:

http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid= ... =1&theater

As you can see we have a lot of trophies!

To address a few more questions - the ace fund is $5 and the 50/50 - CTP fund is $5. We will have nine 50/50 cash holes, 27 CTP prizes, and more! The $5 portion will also get you into the putting competition. You can pay for the ace fund and/or 50/50 - CTP funds at the putting competition or before you begin your first round.

Finally - some people have been asking about the final 9. This will take place at Morton and should start between 2PM and 2:30PM. MA1 will lead it off, followed by MPM, FPO, and MPO. Awards will follow that and payouts will be available at Morton during the afternoon. Get signed up today!
