Welcome to our web site.
Our goal at Firefly Disc Golf is to run the best disc golf events and provide a valuable service to the disc golf community. We believe we offer some of the best tournaments, provide excellent course design advice, and promote our great sport through contacts with local clubs, parks departments and local businesses. We would love to do a better job so feel free to let us know how we can help you!
The 2013 Next Adventure Amateur Championship was held at the prestigious Blue Lake Disc Golf Course in Fairview, Oregon, August 24th and 25th. The NAAC is the largest amateur only event on the West Coast and has become a must-play event thanks to Next Adventure and Firefly Disc Golf's combined efforts to bring together a great player's pack, awesome food, and a smoothly run tournament.
We're going to send out another email tomorrow, but here are a couple more notes:
PLEASE be aware that these extras are not coming out of your entry fee! The money for these bonuses, your dinner Sunday night, the many kegs of beer, the park rental, and much, much more is being provided by Next Adventure directly. Bryan Knudsen will be in the park on Saturday and Sunday hanging out, be sure to thank him for everything!
Firefly Disc Golf is proud to announce two more sponsors for the NAAC.
North Bonneville 2013 Spring Series AKA “That Dam Series”
What it is: A little friendly competition added on top of the three PDGA sanctioned events at North Bonneville Disc Golf course this spring.
Which Tournaments are you talking about: Bonneville Bare Bones - March 17th, NW Contender - April 6th-7th, and Ring of Fire - May 18th. All three events are PDGA sanctioned and available for sign up at www.4DiscGolf.com
Where’s North Bonneville: It is located in Washington, less than an hours drive from most of Portland. Check out the course web site at http://www.nbdga.org
What will I win: Besides the prestige of knowing that you are one of the best players at North Bonneville there will be a major award presented to the winner and second place in each of eight divisions. There will also be a small prize for the winners and several prizes for “tournament director’s choice” awards. (We reserve the right to give bigger prizes if we get some major sponsors to join us!)
What does it cost to join: There is no additional fee to be a part of the series. Tournament Directors for each event are deducting one dollar from each player towards the series awards. So your only cost is the event fee to participate. But you were going to pay that anyway weren’t you.
How will you determine the winners: Using sophisticated high tech devices called computers we will gather the PDGA round ratings for every round in the three tournaments. We will then find the best 4 rounds for each player and use addition to give you a score for those rounds. We will then compare that score with the other players in your division and the top two players will be winners.
I can’t count very well, how many events do I need to play in to qualify: Since two of the events are one day events with two rounds each, and the other event is a two day event with a total of three rounds you will need to play in a minimum of 2 events to qualify to win. The advantage being the more rounds you play the greater the chance of having 4 good or great rounds to use for your final score.
What if I play in more than one division (Bagger Rule): Your division will be the division you played in the most. If there is a tie, you will be moved to the highest division you played
Firefly Disc Golf is proud to announce that the 2012 Next Adventure Amateur Championship has been added to the PDGA Supertour schedule. This makes the NAAC one of four events in the Pacific Northwest at that level. Planning is underway currently and more details will be available in March and registration will open in May.
The NAAC is August 25-26, 2012
