LAFS Team Match Play

lafs-team-matchplay-1536940201-large.jpg

LAFS is excited to announce it’s inaugural team match play event! It’s a format that we are excited to bring to Lancaster. In addition to being a fun and unique way to compete, it will also help grow the sport by raising money for our neighbors in East York. They are currently raising money for a course just across the bridge (20 minutes from Lancaster) and we want to help them out! I mean we will benefit from a new course too, right? We are hosting the event at Herr park and hope to see those same neighbors in attendance with us. There might even be a royal wedding to unite the kingdoms. This event is for club and non-club members from any area.

This will be a draft style matchplay. We will have 8 teams of X amount of people (based on interest). Teams will be selected by captains the week prior to the event.

How it works: Each team will seed their players 1-x. 1 seeds will play the 1 seed from the opposing team, 2 seed will play 2 seed from the opposing team, so on and so forth. Each match will be 9 holes long, unless a match doesn’t need to go any further due to winning enough holes. This means every player will play between 27 and 45 holes throughout the day. All seeding is to be done in good faith. The TD’s may step in if a team is seeding out of order to gain an advantage. The team with the best record amongst the matchups beats the opposing team.

The event will start with a divisional round. There will be 4 teams in division A and 4 teams in division B. You will go head to head against each team in your division one at a time. The top two team records from each division will advance to the semi-finals in which you will play one of the top two teams from the other division. Winners move to the finals, losers play for 3rd place.

Payouts: 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place teams will be paid out. If you win your seed in your division during the divisional round, you will also be paid out something.

Ryan Davie and Jerry Dyson will be hosting the event. If you have any questions feel free to contact them.

Registration will open next week on Wednesday, September 19th @ 8pm at:

The Milo Classic benefiting Pet Pantry of Lancaster County

the-milo-classic-benefiting-pet-pantry-of-lancaster-county-1525763038-large.jpg

This is a Road to Am Worlds Detour. Do you still need points to get into next year's Am Worlds event? Have you done your good deed yet for today? Knock out both of those things by signing up for this event.

This will be a SANCTIONED XC TIER doubles event. No need to find a partner, we've got you covered.

ALL players will be matched as follows- highest rated and lowest rated are a team, second highest rated and second lowest rated are a team, etc. For those who might worry about how this might affect your rating, XC tier events DO NOT COUNT towards ratings but they DO COUNT towards amateur point totals.

All teams will be playing against each other in the Advanced Division which means that, assuming we fill the field, the winning team members will each get 360 points, second place will be 350 points, third = 340 points, etc. There is no bigger bang for your buck than this event, and you'll be doing a good deed at the same time.

The player's pack will consist of a custom Ultimate disc. There will be an in round CTP for every card, as well as post round side games- long drive, putting contest, CTP, and raffle. All proceeds will be donated to the Pet Pantry of Lancaster County.

Preregistration opens on May 27 at DGScene.

Another sanctioned C-tier for under $11? Really?? Yes, really.

Additionally, if a non-PDGA player wants to test out the waters of competitive play, this will allow them to do so without breaking the bank.

A small player's pack will be provided, but don't get crazy, you're paying less than $11
