except when I talked with jeff hagerty about it over the weekend at stumptown slosh 4. He said it will MOST LIKELY be the same format as last year but we would just have to wait and see.

A PDGA National Tour Elite Series event

Stumptown Disc Golf is once again partnering with KEEN Footwear and Next Adventure to bring you the 2012 Beaver State Fling on the weekend of June 15th - 17th. This PDGA National Tour Elite Series event will once again take place at Milo McIver State Park in Estacada, Oregon, where two spectacular 18 hole courses line the banks of the Clackamas River. The Beaver State Fling (www.beaverstatefling.com) has a tradition of excellence that continues to draw the best disc golfers in the world back to the grandeur of the Pacific Northwest year after year. Tournament directors Jeff Mittl and Jeff Hagerty have joined forces again to ensure that tradition continues.

In addition to the NT and the A-Tier there will also be plenty of side events to entertain the masses before, during and after the rounds, including our epic mini disc golf course. As with years past, we will again be using both the East and West courses which are played as pro par sixty with lengths in excess of 8000 feet. Camping will also be offered again on site this year with more space for RVís and tent campers, including a space for Thursday camping arrivals. Reservations for the parks designated campground can be made at www.reserveamerica.com.

We will be offering 160 Professional spots this year for the NT and 144 Amateur spots for the A-Tier event. As always, we are hoping more ladies will make the trip this year to compete for the crown and help round out the field of competitors. The professional divisions will be playing 2 rounds again on Friday, competing for the mid-day tee times on Saturday. Their final round will be held on Sunday to wrap up the weekend of competition. The Amateur Divisions will be playing two rounds on Saturday with tee times. The first round will be in the morning and the second round will be in the later part of the afternoon. The third and final round will be with tee times on Sunday morning.

Professional Registration:
Due to the overwhelming demand for this event and our own desire to attract the very best players this sport has to offer we will once again be instituting tiered, ratings-based registration for the NT side of the event.

Here is how tiered, ratings-based registration will work:

Phase 1: 03/19/2012 @ 6:00pm PST - Registration opens for all 1000+ rated MPO players, plus all FPO women.
Phase 2: 04/02/2012 @ 6:00pm PST - Registration opens for all 970+ rated professional players, regardless of division, plus all age-based professional divisions.
Phase 3: 04/16/2012 @ 6:00pm PST - Registration opens for all remaining professional players.

Important Notes:
* Do not ignore your registration window. This event will fill.
* We will have division size caps in place to ensure non-mpo divisions remain viable.
* Anyone attempting to register before their tier is open will have their registration rejected.
* We will be holding a limited number of slots for 2012 National Tour Champions and returning 2011 Beaver State Fling MPO & FPO Champions.
* We require at least 4 players to create a division.

Professional Division Sizes:
(Note: these may change slightly based on registration trends. For example: If we receive more than 20 FPO registrations in the first phase of registration we will accept those entries.)

Division - Initial # of Slots
MPO - 80
FPO - 20
MPM - 32

This leaves 28 slots available for "other" professional divisions provided they meet the four players per division requirement.


Amateur Registration:
Registration for the amateur side of this event has proven to be quite the undertaking in the past. Historically, the event has filled so quickly that registration felt more like a case of who has the best internet connection, or who can race home to get registered in time. In an attempt to make this as fair as possible for everyone, and with the support of our primary sponsors, we have obtained permission from the PDGA to institute a lottery system for amateur registration.

We will open pre-registration on 03/26/2012 and it will remain open until 4/8/2012. During that time period anyone who would like to play in the event can pre-register at no cost. At the end of the pre-registration window we will sort all prospective players by division and begin randomly pulling names. We will then send an email to those people containing an email link where they can formally register for the event. Players who are selected will have 2 weeks to register for the event, after which time their slot is forfeited and it goes back in to the pool.

Once the event has filled, all remaining names from the initial two week pre-registration window will be randomly sorted and placed on the waiting list. If a slot opens we will pull names from the waiting list in order.

Important Notes:
* We will have division size caps in place to ensure non-MA1 divisions remain viable.
* We require at least 4 players to create a division.

Amateur Division Sizes:
Division - Initial # of Slots
MA1 - 72
FA1 - 16
MM1 - 32

This leaves 24 slots available for "other" amateur divisions provided the division meets the four players per division requirement.

In Closing:
We understand some people may not approve of this plan, but after much deliberation we decided this method of registration was as fair as we could possibly make it. We are also confident it will alleviate the server-load issues we have had in the past during registration. We hope people understand the dilemma we face when putting on an event with far greater demand than available spots.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us through the Beaver State Fling website.

I'm thinking of going up for the Pro side, just to hang out, caddy, or whatever. My brother lives in Portland.

Last Day for +1000 Palyer Rating priority registration

All,

Tonight at 6 PM Pacific time all professionals 970+ will be able to register for the event. If you are 1000 rated or higher and want to compete I would register soon. Shortly after 6pm the event will fill with people who are below 1000+ rating that have been chomping at the bit to get signed up.
