Devens Bag Tag Bonaza - This Sunday October 23rd

This is lengthy but please do read if you are coming to the Bonanza!

Reminder that the 2016 Bag Tag Bonanza is going to take place on Sunday October 23rd. All 2016 bag tag holders are invited to attend. We will play one final league round of 24 holes (Bonanza Loop, 1-7 on Hill, 13,14,15 General, 10,11,12 General then 8-18 Hill). The courses will be closed to all others until about 12:30pm on Sunday the 23rd.

Register between 8am and 9am on Sunday morning. I’ll be set up across the street from the soccer field.

The cost is the usual $5 and you should sign in as usual for a league night and we will provide Pizza/Cookies/Drinks. Participants also receive a Trilogy Custom stamped disc. I got 100 of them and they are really sweet! We got:

Classic Judge, Classic Blend Wardens, Lucid Felon, Fuzion Emac Truth, Fuzion Escape, Opto Ballista, Opto AIR Ballista, Gold River, BT Medium Harp and VIP Harp

Custom stamp image and event flyer below.

$15 Hawk Nest Gift Certificate + a disc on every single Hill hole and over 100 raffle items. In case you didn't know those who purchase tags receive a raffle entry for each league they attend.

ACES (worth additional point in standings & $$)
Pot will start with $48 at the Bonanza and we will throw off for a 2 or 3 way split of the pot if it does not get hit.

Banked nightly payouts – We will have these ready for pick up on Sunday morning. If you can’t get to the Bonanza I’ll contact you after the event to figure out a way to get the money to you. Amounts are posted in the Averages sheet.

Aaron Little (1 year)

I've got a $10 Hawk Bills certificate for each of you as a thank you for you unwavering dedication!

Points leaders will be playing on a card with each other. I’ll preregister each of those players to ensure they end up on the same card if you can’t make it please let me know:

C pool card hole 11 Hill – Sean Coyne, Don Tucker, Brett Reynolds, Bill Pacheco (all confirmed)
B pool card hole 13 Hill – Casey White, Jesse Cleary, Ben Maxwell, Jeremy Draeger (all confirmed)
A pool card hole 1 Hill – Aaron Little, Frank Strauss, Bill Bertera, Alex Gula (all confirmed)
W pool card hole 17 Hill – Kelly Jenkins, Jacki Bogan, Kristina Draeger (all confirmed)

The winner of each pool will receive a sweet trophy made by Bob Kulchuk!

Current Pool Leaders -

A pool:
Aaron Little - 98 - 1ST Place
Frank Strauss - 76 - Trying to lock up 2nd
Bill Bertera - 72 - Chasing 2nd

Only Marc Sobota could catch 3rd but I don't think he will be traveling from North Carolina for the Bonanza so the top 3 is set! Frank and Bill are fighting for 2nd.

B pool:
Casey White - 98 - 1ST Place
Jesse Cleary - 88 - 2ND Place
Ben Maxwell - 71 - Trying to lock up 3rd
Greg McWilliams - 70 - Chasing 3rd

Casey and Jesse are locked into the 1st and 2nd spots and Ben and Greg are fighting for 3rd.

C pool:
Sean Coyne - 94 - Lock for 1st or 2nd
Don Tucker - 89 - Lock for 1st or 2nd
Brett Reynolds - 63 - 3RD Place

Don could potentially catch Sean but Don would need to win C pool at Bonanza and Sean would need to place in 6th or worse. Both are a lock for either 1st or 2nd. Brett is a lock for 3rd

Womens Pool:
Ashley Toomey - 81 - 1ST Place
Kelly Jenkins - 75 - 2ND Place
Jacki Bogan - 44- 3RD Place

Would take multiple aces by Kelly and Kristina to shake up the ladies division

Raffle Winners:
Here is the list of raffle winners for the smaller items. This year we did the raffle mostly in chunks to help with shirt sizes and disc weight, etc. You can pick your prize(s) up during registration so show up early to get the best selection in prizes within your lot.

I did the raffle winners using an excel formula (video evidence is available, if needed) in an effort to save time during awards. We will still do a “pick up number” system for the large items and maybe a few smaller additions as well but this should save some time.

CTP Winners:
Every hole on the Hill has a CTP on it. Each prize is $15 Hawk Bills and the choice of a disc. Womens division will get first crack at the discs followed by the holes in order. Each division has 5 holes to shoot for.

Random Notes:
Check in using the normal league system. Only use “The Hill” when checking in.
If you get a hole with a “G” next to it, that’s a General hole. All others are Hill.
Please bring in CTP flag on your ending hole (only on the Hill)
Get there early for best selection on player pack discs and raffle prize choices.
Banked nightly payouts will be available during registration

Awards Structure:
Ace Pot throw off, if needed
Final League round (Payout, Tag distribution)
Perfect Attendance
Season Winners (Money, Trophy)

Raffle (ipad pick a number 1 – 2,129 )
