There should have been better communication. Sorry that happened to you Dave.
Completely agree and thanks. Here are driving directions between the two:

So yeah, ~28 miles driving and far less than that in a straight line. Yes, I have emailed Discraft. I did talk to the TD for Lake Township prior him signing up his event and after we signed up for ours and the way we left it was we weren't sure if Discraft was going to allow his event. Knowing what I know now I would have said something MUCH sooner instead of taking the wait and see approach. This is the first time I have ever run one of these and I am unsure if I ever do it again. Please note I waited until AFTER their event to raise a stink about this...

Birdie Bash anyone?

Not to go off on a tangent from the thread, but our vibram birdie bash was a great time. Steve does a good job and smartly runs them in the spring so as not to compete with the AR and other vendor's events in the fall. Also a great deal for beginning players, getting a putter/disc of choice from production discs. we set up alternate tees on our course to make the VBB enjoyable for beginners/open up more ace runs.

I think in some regards the AR and VBB events/TDs can learn from one another.

Ours was on Saturday, 8/31/13, and I got the shipping notification on Monday, 8/26/13. Discs came in on Wednesday.

Guessing you should get it tomorrow at the latest.

Yea. I figured if I don't get a tracking tomorrow I am making a call. I had a real close call with my vibram birdie bash (disc arrived Friday at 4pm for a Saturday morning event), so I am just a little paranoid.

I got shipping info on a Monday, and the package didn't arrive until Friday after a one day 'late train' delay. My event was that Sunday though.

Just got mine too (I assume, I order things through work through UPS)

Id like to know the upside of trying to time the packs to arrive the day before the event. (essentially day of considering it wouldn't come before 10am on the day of).
Because I can definitely see a lot of downside...

So all of our player packs have sold...*ahem* It appears I need to find some crow to eat.

Learned my lesson though...Next year we have ONE AR in Berrien County - if I have anything to say about it.
