Ace Race 2011

Post by Paul Holden » Tue Sep 13, 2011 10:31 am

Is anyone running an Ace Race this year?

If not I guess I could try and get it organised noting that the only options for dates are 15/16 or 22/23 and the latter clashes with Nationals.

Can people vote if they would DEFINITELY be up for an Ace Race on either of those dates please. I need at least 10 definites for the same date and location (or anywhere) and I need to order the player packs 3 weeks in advance so poll closes on Sunday!!!

Also please don't vote for 22/23rd unless you would definitely not be going to (Not the) Nationals but would be up for Ace Race. On reflection I shouldn't really have put an option for 22/23 in Bristol but I don't seem to be able to edit the poll now. :(

Paul,

I beleive Phil has emailed the guys at Discraft about running one at Croydon, as i mentioned to him about running one at Essex but it seems time has run away with us, not sure on whether Phil received a response. You are more than welcome to order the packs and we can run it at Essex, i'll glady help sorting a suitable course out and i'm sure we can get more than enough players down for the fun, let me know if you want me to poll the local players on it.

This is your one and only reminder - BUMP!

Looking like a no at the moment which is great since I don't have to arrange anything and that is a free weekend I can spend trying to get out of the red in the brownie points with the wife account :oops:

No worries Paul, go get those brownie points, but if things do change, happy to help out.

OK, this is a no-go for me organising. Maybe next year. If anyone else wants to organise this (Croydon, Essex) I'd be glad to attend - as long as it's not Nationals weekend.

next year we will have the short course installed at QP so this willb perfect for an inaugural Ace Race.

best laid plans and all that...

We had hoped to run this down in Lloyds park, but with cyclone etc things just ran away from us unfortunately. The shipping this year also came back absurdly high, about $10 per pack! so apologies to let folks down but unlikely we will host this.

Ouch on the shipping.

That would have stuffed me running it at QP then as I wouldn't want to do that without being able to offer Del some round fees. :(
