A Discraft Ace Race is:

“a fun event that helps disc golf grow by introducing thousands of new players to the joys of the sport! Each participant gets a huge player pack of cool stuff, then everyone plays two rounds of disc golf, but instead of keeping score the only goal is to throw aces (also known as a hole-in-one)! Holes are shortened, and everyone is throwing the same disc: a brand new Discraft prototype disc that is easy to throw and developed just for the event. It’s a blast!”

This Years Disc:  “The 2012 Ace Race prototype disc is officially classified as a long range driver, but it could be more accurately described as a hybrid driver and is superb for running aces! Faster than a Buzzz but slower than a Stalker, the disc offers players controlled fairway shots. At medium to fast speeds this disc will hold the line to finish with a slight hyzer. Give it a rip!”

2012 Player Pack. According to Discraft “Guaranteed to be at least twice the value of your entry fee!”.

Grand Prize (provided by Discraft!)  Eight Discraft discs in a disc golf bag. The picture says “tournament bag” but the ace race website says “large bag”. We’re not sure what model it will be. This year they have included a cool trophy disc!

  1. When is the cut off date to be registered. Can I register / pay (paypal) on the
    14th and still get in ? (That’s when I get paid) Or are you ordering packageson the 14th and I need to be paid by the end of the day the the 13th?

    Thanks

    • Yes you can! In a perfect world, everyone would pay before we order to minimize the no-shows. However, we’re not sticklers, and this is about fun, not seriousness, so just email (lansingacerace@gmail.com) to let us know you’ll be sending payment, and well order you a player pack! Also, we will have a limited number of extras ordered which will be first come first serve on race day, but don’t wait until then, because there’s no guarantees if you take that route!
