This PDGA C-Tier will test players in a variety of ways by including all 27 holes. First round will be 1-18, second will be 10-27. Both rounds will include Gold positions.

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.
With everyone scrambling to earn enough points to qualify for Am Worlds, players need to save some money for the bigger A & B tiers but can still grab a significant number of points at this trophy only, amateur only, bargain basement C-tier.
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
