I retract this, since I no longer have any vacancies on my floor. But you can always go on craigslist or couchsurfing and find a place, or I can keep an eye out for vacancies on friends' floors.

Unfortunately, the Bowling Green Open is no more, it is now the SOKY Open held in May by a different club.

The BG Club used to take a 10K profit (sponsors/disc sales/hotel kickbacks) from the BG Ams to put into the BG Open NT purse.....and still had a few thousand dollars left to upgrade the parks. Only a handful of BG folks run the BG club now.

We have 4 world champions, 3 PDGA Hall of Fame members, a PDGA Discipline Committee member, a PDGA Rules Committee member, and a former PDGA Board member who live in Bowling Green, and you won't see a one of them helping with the BG Ams, if that gives you a clue.

which is really a shame because Bowling Green could be a disc golfer's dream with a strong club

what courses are being used for advanced? and how spread out is everything? i'm trying to get a group together but we would be taking one vehicle. idk how well that would work since (i assume) there will be different pools for each division.

it says on the site that they are predicting the same schedule for 2013 as 2012, which means advanced will be on Hobson Grove, Kereiakes, BGTC, Phil Moore.

That's probably the best thing about BG - all of the courses are so close to each other that you can easily car pool, and since many people stay in motels that are also close together someone can always get a ride back to the room or the next course (only an issue on Saturday) since you play with the same pool of people every round...

KOI next to Basil Griffin is a typical hotspot for camping
