Caddy Bob's Notes:

Even though Debbie & I have been playing disc golf for a very long time and had competed in many local leagues, neither of us had participated in a PDGA sanctioned tournament before so this was a big deal for us. I had heard about how great this course was and the timeframe was right for us to participate in this one, so we registered and went down to Chapin, SC a month before the tournament to get a feel for the course. We liked the course and did rather well on it despite it being a tougher-than-average course to par.

In some ways, the tournament turned out to be a bit of a disaster... Debbie didn't play nearly as well as she was capable of, we got absolutely soaked in a downpour that killed both of our cellphones and nearly destroyed our camera, I injured my back so badly that it took weeks to recover, and Debbie ended up placing last in her division (which was actually the wrong division for her at the time, but because we didn't know better and because there weren't any intermediate ladies playing, we went with it).

In other ways, the tournament was a wonderful experience... we met many wonderful players that are still friends today, we had a great time being "away from it all" for a couple days, Debbie won the overall CTP prize for the ladies, and we both got invaluable tournament experience from some of the best advanced female and male grandmaster players around.

Typing this 7 months later, it seems like this tournament happened many years ago, but I believe we both look back at it fondly as an overall great experience that we will always remember.

Debbie's Notes:

This was my first PDGA tournament. Wow, what an experience! I got to play with Tabitha Simon, Sara Nicolson, Vanessa Chambers, Heidi Shaffner & Hannah Bright. This was Hannah’s first tournament too, but we were playing with some seasoned vets. These ladies were great. I learned a lot from them – scoring, etiquette on the course while playing a tournament. It was awesome.

The course itself was challenging and new. Bob and I went down to check it out earlier in the month. I think I did better during practice than I did during the tournament.

I was in last place for the final two rounds, so I got to play with the male grandmasters. They were awesome! I so enjoyed playing with them. I hate that I came in last, but it was a great learning experience.

I did however win the CTP for the ladies division twice. I got a nice mako stamped with the tournament logo on it and a certificate for ice cream at a local shop.

We did have a torrential downpour at the end of the round on the first day. We lost both phones and nearly destroyed the camera (which later died at another tournament). I was ready to go home after this tournament!
