150-Class Event

Postby mrpbody33 » Mon Jun 07, 2010 9:32 am

With the Japan Open this week I was wondering if golfers would want to play in a similar event here locally.

Basically it would how the same standards. Only discs weighing less than or equal to 159.9 grams would be allowed. All discs at check-in would be weighed and marked for verification. It could be sanctioned or on-sanctioned. Standard XC-Tier tournament entry fees. Players pack would include at least one if not two 150-class discs. Also on site vendor would have a good selection of 150-class discs for sale.

Please vote and comment.

Do it!

Would probably be the first event I entered since my injury.

Not many folks have 150 class putters so maybe a good selection of those as player pack items would be a good idea.

It's good that they raised the weight limit up a bit.
Where are you thinking about having the tourney at?

A course like Redan (or Redan!) would be great for light weight discs since it provides wooded areas and is not a long course.
We need more info Barry!!! :P

Oh BTW, I will just happen to have about 10 DX tourney stamped 150 class Cobras available soon as well.

I was kinda thinking of doing it on a traditional ball golf course (like the Japan Open). However if that wouldn't work out courses like Redan, Alexander, Original 18 at Central, or McCurry would work out just fine.

Wouldn"t that be 150-159.9? Sounds like a fun day :thumbup: :clap:

Actually it would be any discs weighing UNDER 159.9 grams - most 150 class discs weigh under 150grams - I've got a nice 133 gram Glow disc that goes a mile if thrown right with a tailwind. :mrgreen:

Yes...all discs under at or under 159.9 grams would be legal. So bring out your 115 gram Echo Star Pegasus.

I'm not running it - so that would be Barry's call on what course or how the course will be setup.

I still have a Challenger putter that I got as a players pack disc and I think it is around 100-120g . It should be a hoot to putt with..

150 class = WEAK + SHULE + INVALID = WEASHIN for short

You would think that noodle armed pansies, like yourself, would be all over this action. Gives me an excuse to throw these lame R-Pro Bosses that I have laying around.

Don't curse your disc purchasing/winning selection because you got some lightweight bosses. Calling an Innova product lame is not the answer. If your kids start outplaying you in tournaments (soon), you can save those bosses for when you're old or give them to my noodle arm.

As for a 159.9 and below, BRING IT B! Just make sure it fits my shh-edule before you set a date. Neither Luke at the Monty or Flyboy has figured that out yet :)

(And BAM, if you're reading, I meant to spell Barry and schedule wrong.)

Just to be clear...the event I want to run at McCurry park in October will not be a 150-class tourney. This thread was started just to gauge the interest of such an event with the Japan Open being played.

While I think we could get a few players for a 150-class tourney the problem because how many golfers have 150-class discs. I think the popularity of a 150-class event is about the same level as a Superclass event. That being said I think it would be fun event to run as a lead up to the Japan Open...perhaps a day or so before an event where a lot of touring pros might be in or around town.

Personally I think you are missing out by not doing it man.

1) There are almost no unique tournaments here
2) Build it and make it where everyone who cannot go to the Japan Open wants to come to Atlanta to play the "sister" event.

I think you might have a hard road for a year or two but it could become something amazing.

Those who don't have 150 discs...you can get them mega cheap.
