Ace Race 2012 Preview--MRK Edition
It's that time of the year again.ACE RACE Season is open and sponsored by Discraft. I first was exposed to this unique event last fall when I made a pilgrimage down to Omaha, NE to play with Diggs. We really were walking into the event blind other than the fact that we knew the course. However, the event is won or in our case lost by the new prototype disc that you get. Sadly, last years disc was granted PDGA approval and let's just say the Zeppelin is awaiting its production fate with Discraft. I was not a big fan of the disc but to each its own I guess.
In case you are not familiar with the rules of an Ace Race here is a recap. The rules are simple. Everyone throws the same disc and you only get one throw per hole. You play two rounds of 18 holes. The person with the most Aces or metal hits wins the grand prize....A bag full of discs. I mean who wouldn't want that right.
This years disc looks promising and has peaked my interest in playing this challenging (yet I still want to play anyway) event. Here's the description straight from the Discraft Ace Race Website:
I will be attending at least one Ace Race this fall with the possibility of another later on. This weekends festivities will take place at the Willmar, MN's Robbin's Island Course. May this Buzz/Stalker prototype combo fly right to the chains or at least metal.
Results to follow in a post.
