If you hope to get in a good game of disc golf before the end of the year, there are still a few good tournaments left, including the "Chaining in the New Year" in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and "The Year End Roast" in Louisburg, North Carolina. Here is a look at both.
Chaining in the New Year
Chaining in the New Year is a PDGA sanctioned C-Tier event that will be held on December 31 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin at the Dretzka Park Winter Course, and it's none other than Terry "T-Dogg" Miller who is the tournament director of this great event.
The Dretzka Park Winter Disc Golf Course is set up specifically for winter playing and not available in the summer. It's mostly flat and moderately wooded, consisting of 24 holes. It's one of the few winter courses available and it's set on top of a regular golf course. It's mostly open with some good elevation shots, and a creek coming into play as well.
Johnny Rumble of Germantown, Wisconsin was the Open division winner at the Cold Turkey VI, and he will be competing in the Chaining the New Year. He had several wins in the Masters' division this year, including the Leave it to Beaver II and the Northwoods Open. Scotty Burtard of Sheboygan, Wisconsin and Chris Heeren of Janesville, Wisconsin are just two of the many talented players who will be there as well.
Due to limited daylight, check in will be early, between 7:15 a.m. to 8:15 a.m., with a player's meeting at 8:20 a.m. and a tee-off shortly after.
The Year End Roast at the CC
The Year End Roast at the CC is a PDGA sanctioned C-Tier event that will be held in Louisburg, North Carolina at the Country Course, with all division playing all 25 holes in the first round. Check in is early, 6:30 a.m. to 8:00 a.m., player's meeting at 8:30 a.m., and a tee-off at 9:00 a.m. sharp. A 45 minute lunch break will be taken, with all-you-can-eat chili available for just $5.
Lunch will be followed by a second round consisting of 12 holes for all divisions. This is the first event of the 2012 Shadow Point Conference Series.
Some of the players who will be there include Terry Gallops of Raleigh, North Carolina. Gallops has many wins this year, including the recent Forest Hills Open and the 82nd Memorial Airbourne. Another well known disc golfer, Brian Schweberger of Tarboro, North Carolina is registered. He's also had numerous victories, including the Fall Disc Golf Classic and the recent Franklinstein Open.
