I was talking to some of the club members at Tali Sunday and I wish I could remember all of the funky things they do at their club championship. Some I do recall:

On hole #1 (a legit par 5 beast) you are given the next disc on the stack of lost+found discs and must use it for that hole.
Do a Safari inverted OB hole. Hole 18 is an island hole. They make the fairway and island around the basket OB rather than IB.

I in the past have done a furthest from the pin rather than CTP. There was a minimum distance you had to throw so it wasn't just a matter of dropping the disc in front of the tee box.

I came across a tourney on Vimeo called RODNOC that sounds like what you are looking for.

For a few years I put on an event for Halloween, and did a "Hole from Hell", usually #13. I took flag ribbon, and made double mandos that snaked along through the normal fairway to make my own fairway up to the basket. The first mando was just far enough away that it was easy to reach, but tricky enough to decide "Go for it", or lay it up.?? Miss the mando, then you had to throw back around, and then proceed. After the last event I had, people were laughing, smiling, and frustrated, but all were talking about that hole. I also incorporated some Ript card actions into the event depending on the hole, such as Drive off the tee with your mini, must throw a roller off the tee, must throw a thumber off the tee, if you have a really short, or really easy hole, then must play entire hole with your off hand (if you are right handed, must throw it all left, including putt).

Josh - thanks for the videos that tourney looks awesome

danny - just the kind of ideas i am looking for

thanks all for your input, nice to see not everyone takes this game so serious, would be nice to have an annual goof off competitive tourney once a year.

In the right setting with the right friends, I could see something like this being an absolute blast and I'd definitely take part.

The clown might be overkill, though. :clownhatesmiley:

One thing I'd like to try sometime is a "haunted course" glow round around Halloween. Put up a bunch of corny Halloween decorations (preferably ones that glow, duh ) like hanging skeletons, haunted house sounds near the baskets to spook peeps out, et al.

^ I like this idea. How about players carve pumpkins, light 'em and put those on top of the baskets? End of the event, players vote on best carving, winner gets some sort of prize.

Like have people hiding in trees and scarring the bejesus out of people while they throw

that would be awesome and would be better for a private course. the courses i would play this at you don't want to be out at after the street lights come on.

Washington Park or Brookside in Indy
