The Sixth Annual Disc`n For Dogs Ace Race is now bigger and better with a new title sponsor and an amazing grand prize: a new 2009 Honda Metropolitan 50cc scooter. Set for Saturday, Sept. 11, the ace race will take place at Camden Park, Milan, Ill. All proceeds from this year's event will benefit the Quad City Animal Welfare Center, Milan.
The Disc'n For Dogs Ace Race is for anyone who can throw a disc golf disc and wants a shot at our top prize. Camden Park's original disc golf course's elevation changes and wooded areas are used to their fullest with 26 shortened holes, increasing the hole-in-one opportunities. Most holes average 100 feet or less. Unlimited mulligans, sold for $1 each, will increase the odds of qualifying for the final round.
Registration for the Ace Race opens at 8 a.m. and closes at 9 a.m. at the south picnic shelter near Camden's first hole. The entry fee is $20. The first 40 entrants will receive a player's pack containing a Disc'n For Dogs t-shirt, a soft-sided cooler courtesy of Stern Beverage, plus other items. All players are welcome regardless of ability. A basic disc golf putter is optimal, but a standard backyard flying disc could be used.
The annual Disc`n For Dogs Ace Race disc golf tournament assists animals locally who have been orphaned and are homeless. To date, more than $7,000 has been raised. This event is brought to you in partnership with the Quad-City Animal Welfare Center. All proceeds go directly to the Quad-City Animal Welfare Center which is privately funded and the Quad City`s first no-kill animal shelter
