Default 2014 Amateur World Doubles at Selah Ranch and Trey Texas Ranch April 4-6, 2014

http://www.circularproductions.com/a..._14_event.html

Registration is open! This event filled in two weeks last year so don't miss out! This year two new championship courses will be in play at Trey Texas Ranch along with Selah Ranch, allowing twice as many teams to compete!

This event was super fun last year, despite the unfortunate weather. Huge players packs, parties, pro clinics, and an unforgettable experience at one of the greatest disc golf destinations of the world. It's sure to be even better this year with 4 championship courses in play!

Who else is going?!

Thanks, Stu, for getting this started. Here are some important details from the web page Stu posted:

New for 2014: The PDGA has requested that the Amateur World Doubles, along with other major amateur events, move to a "True Amateur" model beginning this year. The idea is that best pro players should be rewarded with cash, and that the best amateur players should be rewarded with trophies, not big stacks of discs. It also means that ALL amateur players should get a great value when participating in a PDGA major, which includes the player package, meals, and other tournament amenities.

Registration is $110 per player: entry fee of $75 and discounted greens fee of $35 for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday at both venues. We have already secured funding for a player package worth 125% of the entry fee, including 4 tournament discs, a tournament shirt, a tournament mini, and two meals. That package -- and other tournament amenities -- will increase if we're successful raising more sponsorship funding. You can register for the tournament at http://www.circularproductions.com/w...oubles-2014-2/ In order to register, you will need both players' PDGA #'s (if they have one now), addresses, and phone numbers. Please also be prepared to let us know where you think you'll be staying during the event.

There's plenty more on our website and on our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/PDGA-...25508277469395

Quick question: if your current status is pro but you're rated at an am level, can you still play?

You can in other events, but not in PDGA Majors.

So correct me if I am wrong, but, the players pack this year is the exact same as it has been in years past but with no payout? Wouldn't the players pack get better?

Actually, that's not correct. Let me try again.

For starters, the player's pack already has at least one more meal than last year. And in years past, there have not been four discs in the package. That only happened last year, which we said at the time was a special deal. Also, there will be new "payouts" this year for things like best rounds, CTP's, Aces, etc., and improved event amenities -- not everything is going into player packages.

What we listed above is what we've already guaranteed for player packages, which is 125% of entry fees. As we said, we certainly hope and expect that we will secure sponsors to make everything even better for everyone. In any case, we hope everyone would agree that there's a lot more to the value of this event than just goodies, trophies, food, and prizes.

Hope that helps.

Thanks for the reply John,

Those were just a few of the questions I had about this years event.

I don't know if we will make it out again this year due to some bad experiences at last years Am World Dubs and this years TTC.
