The 2nd Pirates Ridge Open Players Meeting - Aug 21st, 2021
2nd Annual Pirate's Ridge Open
Welcome to the 2nd Annual Pirate's Ridge Open! As always, we’d like to start off by thanking our sponsors.
Our tour sponsors: Elephant & Castle Fine Arms, Innova Champion Discs, Creator Designs, Fossa, Millenium Golf Discs, Discmania, Cyclebar Springfield East, 8Up, Patriot's Gold & Silver, Intuitive Body Works, Discs Unlimited, and Dynamic Discs.
Special shoutout to Shawn Tompkins and the Arkansas Dept. of Corrections for doing so much to get the course ready this year. It is greatly appreciated! They will be out there on Friday until 1 PM cleaning up the course.
Everyone needs to check in at the pavilion. Please try to have no more than six people in the pavilion at a time. Also, the PDGA is requiring a signed waiver stating we acknowledge the increased risk of COVID-19 by playing in this tournament. Since you all signed up online, you've already signed that waiver.
Regarding COVID-19, please maintain social distancing at all times before, during, and after the tournament. During check-in, please form three lines, and keep at least 6 feet apart in those lines. Three people at a time will be allowed to check in. After the tournament, amateur players receiving a payout will need to form three lines, as three people will be allowed in the trailer at any one time.
Round 1 tees off at 9. Scores for this tournament will be kept at pdga.com/score. The code is PRO. Round 1 player hole assignments will be posted shortly after registration closes Friday night at https://www.pdga.com/tour/event/53019. The staff will automatically receive the scores at tournament central. When round one is finished, lunch will be at the pavilion. The VFW is providing lunch free to the players. Round 2 SHOULD start at 1, but may change based on last card. There will be an announcement by DGM staff, and round 2 assignments will be posted on the PDGA page.
Hart's Cottage is opening at 8 on Saturday just for the disc golf players! If you want to get some coffee or other refreshing beverages, feel free to stop by. Our House Cafe will be opening at 6, so you can also get breakfast before the tournament.
For anyone traveling the night before, Lemley's Cedar Rock Inn is a tournament sponsor this year, and has lodging and camping available.
Supper options Friday or Saturday: Between the Buns is a friend of the disc golf course, and a great local option.

If there is any question about any throws or lies, try to make a group decision. If no decision can be made, play a provisional. When possible, consult with the course TD to determine the correct answer
