Default Birdie Bash advice

I'm getting ready to sign up for a birdie bash and I need help picking my two discs.

If I was playing two disc birdie golf with my bag it would be gstar rhyno and either gstar tl3 or daedalus.
Tl3 if the holes are pretty short and or the ground is too uneven to throw a lot of skip shots.
Daedalus if there are at least a few par 4s or if the ground is nice and predictable(I throw a TON of skip shots to get around corners, under branches etc).
I don't mind powering down wide rimmed drivers, I have big hands and US drivers at half power hit similar lines to stable mids.

I'm leaning towards putter/trak or putter/lace, in soft all around for that gstar give.

Which putter is closer to gstar rhyno, vp or ridge?

Can you still get a good skip with vibram? Would a med or firm lace skip better than soft?

Has anyone played Hyland dgc and brewery in Sturbridge, MA? Are there any longer holes from the shortest tees? What's the ground surface like in general?

Well first, soft isn't an option for the Birdie Bash. Neither is the Trak.

Your putter you will want a VP. Someone who is a bigger Vibram fan can hook you up with which driver to go with.

Yeah don't know why they made that decision this year. In years past they had everything. This year it's just the distance drivers, mids and putters. The one I'm running is on a short course so I suspect I'll be seeing a lot of people choosing the Ibex or Obex over the distance drivers.

Didn't they pull back on that and allow putter/whatever, or was that just for a specific Birdie Bash?

I'd recommend VP/Lace.

The obex is the only vibram I've ever owned and I sold it to a friend after a few rounds because it overlapped to much with my shark.
I can't really power grip mids comfortably, and the little extra distance I get fan gripping an obex vs a putter isn't worth giving up the extra distance and shot shaping options I get with a wide rim driver. I guess I'll be getting a vp and a lace in medium.

Little to no skip with Vibram.

Ugh, I didn't know that either. That changes my plans SIGNIFICANTLY!. I was going to go Obex/Ascent, and steer you towards a VP/Ascent combo. I'd probably go Lace or UnLace and VP if I were you. The VP will feel different than your Rhyno, but fly similarly. You could consider the Ibex for a shorter, but similar flight to your TL, but it doesn't glide like a Comet so there will be lost distance for sure. If your course is longer the UnLace might be a touch flippier than your Daedalus, but would be a good choice. Lace would give you more stability/wind fighting ability.

Must have just been one specific event, because none of the ones around here nor the one I'm running have the option of anything but putter and mid or distance driver.
