Pun’s Labyrinth VI – July 22-23, 2017

Puns

Registration has gone live for Pun’s Labyrinth VI – our sixth year running this event.

Tournament Director: Theodore Mote

Assistant Tournament Director: Tom Mote

However as some noticed there are some changes this year:

  • PDGA B-Tier Event (Previously a C-Tier)
  • Field is Open to more players
  • Format will be different from previous years
  • Pre-Tournament Friday Blowfly Doubles Round (for those in town early)
  • Island Hootenanny (on the island) with live music by EBDB Saturday evening
  • Mid-Tournament Saturday Night Singles Glow Round
  • Island is now in play with a basket on the island & a platform tee from the island
  • 27 hole course layout in the works (final formats to be determined)

We are still early in the year with lots of time before the event. We are hoping the change from a C to a B Tier will help us bring in some more players and open up the event so nobody who wants to play will miss out this year. Each year the bar is raised a little and we have raised it again in hopes of taking the event in another step in the right direction.

Lots of course improvements were made in 2016 and we are hoping the State Park manages to find the time to make a few improvements as well:

  • Island bridge was installed (thanks to donors & volunteers)
  • More benches were built and installed (thanks to donors & volunteers)
  • Island platform / tee pad constructed & installed (thanks to donors & volunteers)
  • Plans to expand the course were established with the park
  • The state is to install restrooms at the course, hopefully before the tourney
  • The state is aware of the need for a larger parking lot

Events like this are made possible by donations and volunteers working with the Ohio State Park system through the Friends of Punderson State Park non-profit organization. Below is a video of a drive off of the platform tee on the island:

Tomorrow is our Ice Bowl! Don’t forget to bring a non-perishable food item (canned, boxed, pasta, rice, peanut butter, tuna, etc.) for Geauga County Job and Family Services’ Pantry. You can register at the event or pre-register here: https://www.discgolfscene.com/tournaments/8th_Annual_Punderson_Ice_Bowl_2017

We will use the same format as in the past. Tee off will be 10am. One round of reds to longs. 3 divisions, Advanced, Intermediate and Recreational. Optional Mulligans (6 for $5). 50% of entry fees and Mulligan proceeds go to Geauga County Jobs and Family Services charity food program. One food item required with entry fee.
Advanced will pay out in cash, Intermediate and Recreational will pay out in merch.
WE WILL HEADQUARTER AT THE DISC GOLF COURSE THIS YEAR, NOT THE SPORTS CHALET. We will have a fire going and some form of temporary shelter, but please dress accordingly. Hopefully the mild weather will continue, but we will play regardless. No Whimps, No Whiners! Hope to see you out there.

Our island now has a platform as an alternate tee pad for hole #3 – that’s right, you can now play to the island and from the island! Thanks to all the hardworking and dedicated volunteers for making this happen! Below is a video of the platform in play made by Theodore Mote:

We hope to see you tomorrow!
