Finally, Club Championships is just around the corner.
This year, we will be playing at McAllister Park (a.k.a. The Washout). The event will be on Saturday, September 13. Players meeting will start at9:00am and tee off will be shortly after. This event is only for WDGC members, but membership can be purchased the day of the event.

The Trilogy Challenge is a new event sponsored by Dynamic Discs, Latitude 64, and Westside Discs. For the $30 entry fee you'll receive a sweet players pack including an unreleased Dynamic Discs driver, Latitude 64 mid-range, and Westside putter (along with lots of other cool swag). The catch? You can only use those 3 discs for the entire day.
We'll start by playing a round of singles golf. The top 3 players will win discs and other prizes. Then we'll divide the players up into 2 groups based on their singles scores. The top 1/2 will be group A, and the bottom 1/2 group B. Each of the group A players will be randomly paired with a group B player and these teams will then play a round of best-shot doubles. The winning team will get a bunch of discs to split between them.
One of the great things about the Trilogy Challenge is players get everything they need to play disc golf for only $30 so it's a perfect opportunity to get your friends who are new to the game set up at a reasonable price.
Discs will be distributed the day of the event starting at 8:30am. Tee-off is 10:00 so you'll have some time to try the discs out.

Looking forward to a fun filled fall of frisbee flinging. (I only said frisbee due to the alliteration aspect of the sentence, frisbee is a register trademark of the wham-o corporation and generally speaking none of us actually throw frisbees).
