14th Annual Lafayette Mid Winter Open - Jan 19
The Acadiana Disc Golf Association Presents
The 14th Annual Mid Winter Open at Pa Davis Park
Schedule and Format
Saturday, January 19th at Pa Davis. Registration opens at 8:00 AM. A brief players meeting will follow the conclusion of registration and the first round will tee off at 9:30 AM.
Keep this in mind - we are starting 30 minutes early to make sure we don't run out of daylight.
All divisions will play the established tees, except for novices and juniors. They will play a mixture of the normal tees and shorter "blue" tees on certain holes. Blue tees will be clearly marked as always.
We are still holding out hope that concrete tee pads can be finished on the back 9 holes before this event but it does not look like the weather is going to cooperate with us. The excavations have already been done for pads and if we are unable to get cement in the ground in time, we will mark tee locations immediately next to or behind the holes where the pads are going to be placed.
Aside from this one issue, the park is looking better and is more playable and fun than it has ever been before. The Parks Department came in and did a ton of work - cleared dead trees, spread dirt, cleared major overgrowth, improved drainage, etc - and it really shows. There are flight paths that were not there last year and even some that were not there last month.
Tee time for the second round will be announced and posted at lunch, once all of the first round score cards have been turned in.
An awards ceremony will follow the second round once the final scores have been tallied. All CTP prizes, awards, merchandise and cash won by players will be presented at the awards ceremony.

This will be a fundraiser for the 2013 SNDC.
$5 out of each entry fee will go towards the Doubles Championship which will be held in Lafayette this summer.
This will be your first opportunity to purchase a 2013 ADGA bag tag. Additionally, a few will be out on the course as CTP prizes.
Once again, we are selling tags by themselves as well as packaging them with other merchandise.
$10 - 2013 ADGA tag only
$20 - 2013 ADGA tag plus a nice embroidered golf towel. Towels will be navy blue with the club's logo sewn in full color.
$40 - 2013 ADGA tag plus a nice embroidered golf towel plus a full color CFR disc for the 2013 SNDC
Please consider buying your 2013 ADGA tag on the 19th, that way you have a full year to play for it.
Plus, we will have some special prizes for holders of our outgoing 2012 tags as a way of saying "thank you" for your support.
CTPs will be out on the course, cash, merchandise and a few "low number" bags tags.
Vegas style Ace Pot, $1 thru $5. Throw-off (if necessary) will be held while the scores are being tallied after the second round.
Novices and Juniors will receive a free Star or Champion disc of their choice.
Plaques/awards for the top three finishers in all amateur divisions and top finishers in all professional divisions will be given out.
Food and Beverages
To ease the pain of the $5 fundraiser, we're gonna feed two meals at this tournament.
Lunch will be served FREE of charge to all players between rounds. John is cooking up a pot of chili and we'll have hot dogs, chips and soda to go with it.
Somewhere's Else Bar & Grill took a real liking to us after the last tournament. So much so that Carol - the owner - has invited us back after this tournament for drink specials and he will be serving FREE chicken and sausage gumbo too. We encourage our out of town guests to stay and join us in the festivities.
