DGA Presents Pun’s Labyrinth VI

We’ve come a long way since our registration open date of February 14th!

After a few hurdles, a lot of volunteer work and course maintenance and we are ready to host this highly anticipated and much loved event at Punderson State Park located in Newbury, Ohio.

WORK DAY – Monday, July 17th at 10:00am – Please come if you can make it!

This event would not have been possible without the support of the Disc Golf Association, Dynamic Discs, MVP, Johnny’s Grill & Pizzeria, Punderson Manor Lodge & Conference Center, Bailey’s Home Improvements, Zuca’s Non-Profit Program, Team T.E.A., EBDB (Sharky’s Band) and our hardworking volunteers with the Friends of Punderson State Park 501c3 non-profit organization and disc golfers who support and enjoy our course.

Last year one of our biggest accomplishments was installing the island bridge, however we just didn’t have the time to incorporate it into play for last year’s tournament without having the platform installed which we were able to install this year. For this year’s event, the island will be in play.

Not only is the new layout now fully in place, but we have also poured the additional concrete tee pads and are working on updating all of our maps and signs. All tournament layouts are now playable for practice before the tournament.

And as always, we will be hosting side events as well as our much anticipated Prize Raffle.

For those of you coming into town early, we are hosting a Blowfly Doubles Event Friday Night (bring your own partner).

Saturday evening, we will be hosting an “Island Hootenanny” which has actually been moved to the Sports Chalet (tournament headquarters) from 6:00-9:00pm with Pizza provided by Johnny’s Grill & Pizzeria and music by EBDB – there just wasn’t a way to get a reliable electrical source and restrooms on the island. Please make sure to let us know if you will be attending the Hootenanny at registration so we order enough pizza. Raffle tickets will be for sale during this event.

At 9:00pm if you signed up for the Midnight Flyer Glow In the Dark Round you will be heading out to play 9 Holes with Limited Edition Midnight Flyer.

Also at 9:00pm we will begin the Raffle Drawing which is different from past events as we usually held it on Sunday, after the tournament ended. You DO NOT NEED TO BE PRESENT TO WIN your items during the raffle, however your raffle ticket must have your FULL NAME or PDGA NUMBER clearly marked on the ticket, and you will have to pick up your prize before you leave on Sunday. This year, you are encouraged to donate now to earn extra raffle tickets as well as entries to a One Night Stay for Two at the rumored to be haunted Punderson Manor (not available during the event) – Click here for more information and to Donate Now.

If you are from out of town looking for some grub during your stay, please check out these local Restaurants & Businesses and let them know you are here for a Disc Golf Tournament hosted by the Friends of Punderson!

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:
