2014 San Diego Aces’ memberships went on sale this past weekend, in conjunction with bag tag melees and voting held at Kit Carson Park (Saturday) and Morley Field (Sunday). Discs available for registered members include Star Terns, Blizzard Wraiths and Champion Roc3s from Innova; Cannons and Patriots in various premium plastics from Legacy; Squalls and Breakers in Sparkle and Prostyle plastics from DGA. The Aces have also unveiled new dri-fit shirts, available as part of a membership package. Several bag tag competitors sported these shirts during the competition.
KCP Course Rep Tony Buck was given the honor of choosing which tags would be available on Saturday, and he blindly chose odd numbers. Scott Miller (1), Greg Stanbro (3), Matt Howard (5), Garrett Tapken (7) and Josh Hesser (9) walked away with the first five black tags on Saturday. Garrett and Josh stepped up and brought those tags back out for challenge on Sunday at Morley Field. When the round was over, the 2014 black tags were held by:
- Scott Miller
- Carlo Pelg
- Greg Stanbro
- Brad Armstrong
- Matt Howard
- Richard H.
- Garrett Tapken
- Jeff Nichols
- Mike Westerman
- Mike Slonim
Honorable mention: Derek Dryer shot a -10 at Morley which would have given him a black tag, but he had chosen not to sign up for 2014 yet. Many thanks to Mark Verrochi for organizing the bag tag challenges both days as well as the membership registration.
Both 2013 and 2014 tags are now in play until Dec. 31st. Rmember…EVERY ROUND is a bag tag round!
Online voting for the San Diego Aces board election has concluded. If you are a current member and were not able to vote online, you can do so on Saturday, Nov. 30 at Kit Carson Park (9a-1p) or Sunday, Dec. 1 at Morley Field (9a-1p).
Kit Carson Park Disc Golf Course holes 6 through 18 will be closed on Sunday, November 24th from 8am to 2pm for a regional high school cross country meet. The City of Escondido and the Aces ask that you play another course at that time.
Please cooperate with race organizers and the Parks Department – the park is there for all of us to share, sometimes we just can’t play disc golf there.
Thanks for your cooperation!!!
Course closure information for this weekend (11/16-11/17 2013) – Brengle Terrace DGC will be closed all day Saturday and Sunday until 1pm for the SoCal Pro Disc Golf Championships.
Kit Carson Park DGC will be hosting several cross country running events this weekend and next. We recommend that you do not try to play while these meets are going on – the race route crosses or affects Holes 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 14, 15, 16, 17 & 18. We played in the SoCal Am Championships at KCP last weekend, and the races continually interrupted our morning rounds.

It’s almost time to elect the San Diego Aces Board of Directors for 2014. The election will be held similarly to past years: There will be a one week period for online voting, with voting link e-mails being sent to all Aces members with valid e-mail addresses. That period will run from Friday, Nov. 22 to 5pm on Friday, Nov. 29. For those members without valid e-mail addresses or those who wish to vote in person, two bag tag events will be held, one on Saturday, Nov. 30 and the other on Sunday, Dec. 1. Exact locations and times are TBD.
If you are interested in running for the board, please submit a nomination to Aces Vice President Randy Wylot (email@example.com), who is collecting the nominations. Please submit a brief bio and picture – these items will be posted on the Aces website and available by link from the online ballot. Positions open for election are President, Vice President, Treasurer, Secretary and Membership Director. The top five vote-getters will meet in December to assign specific offices. Course Reps are selected by the board at it’s January meeting.
New Cal State University System Chancellow Timothy White recently visited Cal State San Marcos for the first time, and he made sure to get in a little disc golf while he was there. An eyewitness reported: “His backhand was pretty good, but he would probably get more power behind it if he lost the suit and tie.” Let’s hope he helps other CSU schools add a disc golf course to their campuses.
