The BRAWL is back!! The eleventh annual Blue Ridge Area Winter League kicks off at Greenfield Park in Daleville on December 20, 2014. The league will consist of eight disc golf tournaments from December 20, 2014 through March 14, 2015. BRAWL XI will showcase the courses of western Virginia including Randolph Park in Dublin, Greenfield Park in Daleville, Elk Creek in Appomattox, Sontag in Rocky Mount, Montgomery Hall Park in Staunton, Big Branch and Timber Ridge, which are private, temporary courses near Bedford, and a temporary 18-hole course on the grounds of Devil’s Backbone Brewery in Nellysford, VA. The awards ceremony will be after the finish of the final tournament at Timber Ridge. Check out FarmDiscGolf.com for more information or directions, or e-mail PlayFarmDiscGolf@gmail.com. Please check the website for information on cancellations due to bad weather.
Each tournament is two rounds. Registration is from 8-9am, followed by a players’ meeting, and tee off at 9:30 sharp. Pro divisions $20, Amateur/Juniors $15, and Ladies free!!! Please note the change in entry fee from previous years. We will also offer a pro masters division (Age 45+) and Intermediate Amateur division this year. All amateurs, Juniors, and Ladies get an Innova disc when they sign in. Please pack your lunch—the second round will start 45min after the last card is in!
BRAWL XI is a points series with a simple format. Four divisions will be offered—Pro (Open/Masters), Ladies, Amateur (Advanced/Intermediate) and Junior. A player receives one point for entering, one point for each person beaten within your division and bonus points for the top 5 finishers (7-1st, 4-2nd, 3-3rd-2-4th,1-5th.) Only a player’s best six finishes may be used in the final results. This year, the points for the Open and Am division at each tournament will assume a minimum field of 20 participants.
Innova is sponsoring the BRAWL again this year! A portion of the entry fee at each one-day tournament will be withheld from each division. This money goes toward a perpetual trophy for the overall division winners, prizes for the top four Ams, prizes for the top lady, and a ‘Skins Match’ for the top four Pro point leaders to be held at the awards ceremony. Ace Pool and a CTP will be included in every entry. The overall Am champion will win an Innova basket again this year!
