Tent camping and Cabin lodging at Beaver Ranch
: What could be better than staying on the grounds where most of the action will take place? Whether you are from the Denver area or traveling in, the convenience and advantage of staying at tournament central is obvious. Saturday night will be a lot of fun for those staying on the grounds and you won't find a better deal in town. Tent camping is $7 per person per night or you can reserve a bed in a cabin for as little as $10/night. Want to reserve your own cabin? For just $85 you have your own cabin for both Friday and Saturday nights! These cabins are basic with electricity and beds, but when you camp/stay at Beaver Ranch you also have access to showers and water at the main lodge. To reserve your cabin or tent space, please go to ffdgc.net/tournaments/...-2010.html
. Just underneath "Register Online" there is a drop-down with all the Beaver Ranch lodging options listed. There is limited availability so please reserve ASAP!!
Additional area lodging options
: If you're looking for a more traditional lodging option but still want to experience the uniqueness that Colorado has to offer, take a peak at ffdgc.net/tournaments/...dging.html
. We have posted information on each area lodging option including drive distance to/from each course location. The Clifton House, Glen Isle, and The Bailey Lodge are all offering 10% discounts when you mention the disc golf tournament upon booking.
LOW COST LUNCH
One of our sponsors, Platte Canyon Chamber of Commerce
, is working with Safeway and/or Subway to provide low cost lunches on site at both the Bailey and Conifer locations. For somewhere between $3-$5, you will receive a sandwich lunch on the grounds! You will be able to purchase this lunch at registration so please keep this in mind.
Zoka's Restaurant catered dinner
: Kurt Blackwell, owner of Zoka's Restaurant (zokas.com/
), has once again stepped up and will be providing a fantastic buffet-style dinner on Saturday night at the Beaver Ranch main lodge. For $10, you will receive a great dinner featuring one of Zoka's specialties as well as your first adult beverage from Avery Brewery
(21 and older) (www.averybrewing.com
/)!! Avery will also have two kegs on hand and many schwag handouts as well. There's a good chance you'll be able to catch the action of the day of play on the big screen while you enjoy your meal.
There will be several great prizes raffled off at the Players Party, including several disc golf baskets, assorted custom disc packs including Innova and Discraft fundraiser discs, and sets of 4 pint glasses to name a few items.
Area vendors will have the option of setting up for the flymart on Saturday evening as well.
Texas Hold-em Poker tournament:
The main lodge has a lot of room and rooms and there's a good chance a poker tournament will break out as well. Running poker tournaments is one of my specialties so I hope to be able to bring this to the event.
Music, raffle, and more!:
There's an outside shot at live music, there will almost certainly be a raffle (in the past we've raffled off pdga-approved baskets) and much more.
Camp Fire at camping central:
What could be better than hanging by the fire with fellow disc golfers sipping on an Avery pour? As long as conditions allow for a fire, we will have a fire. Disc games are sure to break out as well.
Foothill Flyers Disc Golf Club is really looking forward to this event. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions pertaining to anything above or tournament-related.
