As announced earlier this week, the added activities for Friday are now on the schedule and will be held at Centennial Park. There will be a FREE clinic hosted by Scott Stokely (PDGA #3140) which will be followed by Random Draw “Fly High” Doubles. Information has been posted on both the LPDGC Club website and Facebook page.
Round 3 on Sunday Oct 5 will be played at Centennial Park for ALL PLAYERS. Group B will play in the morning & Group A will play in the afternoon.
Due to so many conditions out of our control we do not feel comfortable using Longmont’s new 18-hole course, Dry Creek. We as a Club have put in alot of work on the course in preparation of Lunacy VI over the past 2 months since the City of Longmont put the baskets in and it’s still not ready – especially for a PDGA event. We have received feedback from Club members and Lunacy entrants that solidify our position and agree we should not use it for Lunacy VI this year. We have decided to keep the field split on Sunday for Round 3 and have everyone play Centennial. Group B will play in the morning and Group B will play in the afternoon. Group B will receive their awards while Group A plays and can spectate the players in Group A afterwards. Awards for Group A will follow immediately after Group A finishes their round.
The course layouts and maps are still being finished. On Saturday, Loomiller Park will be setup in our “Lunacy” layout and Centennial will be setup in a shorter standard course layout. Then, on Sunday, Centennial will be setup in a more difficult “Lunacy” layout.
I am also excited to announce some added activities for Friday, Oct 3. Scott Stokely will be holding a FREE clinic at Centennial Park beginning at 4:00pm. He will then host a Random Draw Doubles to start at 5:30pm. Information for Friday’s activities are available on Facebook and LPDGC Club website.
We understand that changing the plans for Lunacy VI is not ideal – but we are striving to provide the best possible experience here in Longmont while you play LPDGC’s Lunacy VI Tournament. Thank you for understanding.
