There is a Discmania golf clinic being held on Wednesday by Avery Jenkins and Simon Lizotte. That is a clinic available only for the 1st 30 that sign up. Doubles will be our normal Tuesday night doubles. There is also a pro clinic taking place on Thursday the 4th at Chili at 4 pm that is free and open for all to attend.

I noticed the wording about a cut of the bottom 1/3 was removed.
Does this mean all competitors will be playing the 4th round at Chili?

The numbers are in line with other similar events in our region. Hambrick last weekend was a NT with only 46; 48 in 2013(A) and 52 in 2012(NT). PFDO was 56 in 2011 when it was a NT.

To a degree...quality over quantity!

and though I am a representative of the latter,
I regret I will not be able to attend due to
the passing last night of my father-in-law.

Funeral, as you might imagine, is this weekend.

I will miss seeing you New Yorkers and the
impresssive pro field at your prestigious event.

Cheers, dave.

Dave - Please know that the disc golf community here will keep you and your family in our prayers this weekend. So sorry for your loss.

Ron - I understand your position and I also agree with Dave who said quality over quantity. That being said, I wish we had 144 players here for the event because Rochester was ready for that sized event. We did well last month with 135 amateurs which is really exciting to see such an amateur force in this region which will continue to grow the sport. Yes, having the Worlds in Portland certainly strained the flow of the National Tour Series and I know a number of players that couldn't make it to Rochester because of all of the traveling and finances. There are some major growing pains going on in the sport and in the PDGA. Hopefully, they will find a way to make the touring year flow well for the touring players. Obviously the Pro Worlds are in Pittsburgh next year so hopefully there will be East coast events held around the time of the Pro Worlds next year including the RFDO.

True Tony. When i talked to Matty O he said because of Worlds alot of west/mid-west guys were going to stay home due to what you mentioned about finances.
