ARRIVE EARLY...NOTE EARLIER TEE TIME

Note: The park will not be sponsoring parking fees this year.  Parking fees are $4 per vehicle per day unless you are camping.  Camp fees include parking fees on the days you are camping.


See www.discgolfscene.com for the current list of paid participants.  Camping is encouraged.  We have camping sections where players can set up and represent their local clubs.  A temporary course will also be built in and around the club camping areas for night glow golf etc.  We encourage clubs to fly club flags, hang club banners etc.  Many folks come as early as Thursday and leave Sunday so come on out and hang out with us.  There will be a putting competition for a custom Disaster Prize about 8p Friday the 12th and possibly a poker game Saturday night for a custom Disaster prize plus cash.

If you do not make it in, please to not hesitate to add yourself to the online waiting list.  Indicate your name, division, and contact information and you will be added if someone drops out

As always, no tournament director fees (shame on those who do).  100% of your entry fee minus the $3 CVS fee is put back into your divisional payout.  Pros will receive at least $5 per player in ADDED cash.  All players packages, which include shirts for Am's are funded through sponsorship, raffle sales, disc sales, and side games such as putting and poker so PLEASE support these activities.

Camping Information:

They will have the Acorn WEST Campground open for participants to camp. Please note this is a different camping area than in the last couple years.  2 cars per campsite. The tournament RV will be in site 13 and we encourage people to camp in groups representing their respective clubs in sites around 01-31.  Camping fees include course day use fees so don't pay double! The putting competition Friday night will be near there.  The fee is $16 per night. Please note the new poliicy allowing campsites to be reserved in advance on the site highlighted below.  Many will arrive Thursday.  Camping in any other area of the park including parking lots is prohibited. Further camping information is located at: http://www.recreation.gov/camping/Acorn_Camp_East/r/campgroundDetails.do?contractCode=NRSO&parkId=73494&topTabIndex=Search

Fron 99 South of Lodi-Take Highway 12 offramp East Lockford and Clements to Valley Springs 4 way stop sign.  Take right onto Highway 26 about a half mile to the "Y" of Hogan Dam Road, take the left fork past Wrinkle Cove.  Take left at Hogan Parkway.  Go past Campgrounds to Fiddleneck Boat Launch.

Again, please arrive early, signups will begin at 6:30a.  The park does not allow us to provide any food or drink so come prepared.  Lunch is available in Valley Springs, about a 5 minute drive but I’d still recommend bringing lunch if you can.

I played my first round of golf 25 years ago today :-)  That is why the Disaster is on V-Day weekend every year.

I’m looking forward to a fun weekend, we have many surprises for you!!!

Where is Valley Springs?  In Calaveras county.  Calaveras means skull in Spanish :-)  Here is an interesting fact:

Ca`la`ve´ras skull

1. A human skull reported, by Prof. J. D. Whitney, as found in 1886 in a Tertiary auriferous gravel deposit, lying below a bed of black lava, in Calaveras County, California. It is regarded as very doubtful whether the skull really belonged to the deposit in which it was found. If it did, it indicates an unprecedented antiquity for human beings of an advanced type.
