We are playing under the lights once again! This is one of the coolest events we do all year! If you haven't been, you HAVE to check it out!!

Date: August 17, 2013
Time: Registration 6:00pm
First team on the field 7:00pm
Location: McMurray Field, St. Paul, Lexington Parkway N & Jessamine Avenue (1100 Como Avenue, St. Paul, MN 55103)

This will be a combined Freestyle and Toss & Catch format, with Novice and Pro divisions in both events. Novice will be one round of FS and one round of TC. Pro Freestyle Division includes two rounds of freestyle and one round of TC. TC division is two rounds. The lights will be turned off at 11:00pm, so second-round cuts will be made based on time. We will have as many teams as possible play as much as possible.

Format
For ease of judging/scoring in the dark, the formats will be as follows: Freestyle will be MNDDC format (unlimited discs) http://www.mndiscdog.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=64&t=2416. Toss & Catch will be played on a field with 4 point zones at 10y, 20y, 30y, and 40y. There will be no out-of-bounds and no bonus zone. Leaping bonuses will apply. Zone lines will be painted double thickness and a trailing paw ON the line will count for the higher point zone.

The awards have been one of the highlights of this comp for the past few years. As last year, the light-up trophies will be for Pro Overall 1st, 2nd, and 3rd. Medals for placements in novice and pro TC and FS.

Field set-up begins at 4:30pm.

OMG, I am not thinking about that yet. It will be a fs, tc, and combined format like usual though.

We are working out when to have a 2nd UFO local. If yours isn't, that's cool, we can work it in somewhere else. :mrgreen:

Ah. I think Star Jam should not be a UFO local, just because judging can occasionally be "iffy" due to low light, and because of the risk of needing to make deeper cuts than we'd want to or potentially not run a second round. But it's up to you.

Hey Board! What are you thinking on dates for this? I want to book the field ASAP. I emailed to see if August 10th, 17th, or 24th was available. I'd prefer to avoid conflicts with TCDDC events and out-of-town events that our members are likely to attend, if possible.

Aug 17th would be the preferred date. It will fall between CCC & Last Fling.

If people are going to CCC, they may not get home till the 6th or 7th. Just too much going on then.
