Did you see the guys with the drone at the Emerald Isle Monthly/Women’s Global Event? Well, here’s some of the video that they shot. Many thanks to Alex Gorman and Evan Blumenfeld of Outer Limits Aerial for sharing this video with us.
The Rotating Aces’ Monthly for July will be held this Sunday, July 27th at Kit Carson Park. TD Jason Perdue has set up the registration page on Disc Golf United. There is a $5 discount for registering online. Registering online helps the TD get scorecards ready in advance and get the event started on time.
The August Monthly is scheduled to be held on Sunday, August 24th at Sun Valley.
Beginning this Saturday, July 19th, the Aces Saturday Morning Doubles League will move to the San Diego Aces Disc Golf Course at Brengle Terrace Park. The time (9am), entry fee ($5) and format (best shot, random A/B draw) will all stay the same. Brengle Terrace Course Rep Scott Miller will take over running the league. Players should meet up at tee #1. We hope to see you there on Saturday!
The Aces’ Rotating Monthly head’s back to Sycuan this Sunday (June 29)! For more details and to pre-register (and save $5) check out this page at DGU: http://www.discgolfunited.com/disc-golf-tournaments/tournament-dashboard.cfm/tourn_id/1418
After a one-year layoff to increase the size of his family, David Parnell is back to TD the Sun Valley Open in 2014. The tournament will be held Saturday and Sunday, July 12/13, at Sun Valley Golf Course. As in previous years, the 18-hole SVO layout will be used (featuring tight lines and possible roll-aways), there will be two pools to maximize field size, there will be the $1,000 doubles-skins on Sunday and David promises big payouts across all divisions. Registration is available on DGU, a tournament flyer is available or you can contact David at 619-675-6477.

***Update*** All of the courses affected by the fires have re-opened!
While the fires have been put out (for the most part, at least), the Cocos Fire (San Marcos) continues to have an impact on our local disc golf courses.
Kit Carson Park DGC – While Kit Carson was in no danger of burning, the entire park, including the disc golf course, has been closed since last Thursday while the park has been used as the staging area for the fire crews battling the Cocos fire. Fire crews have been using KCP to park their fire engines, set up tents for sleeping and set up mobile kitchens and dining areas. The City of Escondido website currently says that the entire park is closed through end of the day Thursday (5/22/2014). If this changes we will announce it here.
Cal State San Marcos DGC – The fire came very close to CSUSM (I was there, I saw it!), but the campus sustained no physical damage. CSUSM was also use as an emergency command post through last weekend, so the campus (including the disc golf course) was closed. Graduation ceremonies had been scheduled for last weekend but were postponed to this coming weekend (Sat/Sun, 5/24-25).Because of all the set-up and tear-down work that has to be done around the track area, the campus has closed holes 1-8 from 8am on Thursday (5/22) until 5pm on Monday (5/26).
Thank you for your patience!
Kit Carson Park DGC has been closed for the next few days (hopefully not longer) as it is being used as a staging location for the firefighting efforts related to the Cocos (San Marcos) fire. Please do not get in the way of the firefighting efforts by trying to play disc golf!!!!
The campus of CSUSM is also being used for firefighting staging, plus it’s too darn close to the flames – so please do not try to play there as well.
Montiel Park in San Marcos has not been closed, but it’s awfully close to the firefighting traffic as well, so we recommend staying away until the Cocos fire is out!
Brengle Terrace Park, Morley Field, Sun Valley and Sycuan sound like much better alternatives! Please keep our disc golfing friends who live in the danger zone in your thoughts and prayers.
