It's that time of year again boys and girls to get out some information about the GSSS for 2011.
It's actually a little later than usual, but with the Big A-tier wrapping up and 2 Events in the last 3 weeks it's been a little hectic.
Stay tuned to http://www.supersixseries.com
and the 2011 GSSS thread on this site for all the latest info.
There are a couple of changes in 2011 for the continued betterment of the Series.
The Parks Department changes in policies and pricing has removed the Crucible and Central from the schedule with Wills and a new course TBD to replace those 2 parks. It is regrettable to not have one of the top courses in the state to use, but the circumstances beyond my control have made it necessary to look elsewhere.
There will be 6 PDGA Sanctioned C-Tier Events roughly 6 weeks apart.
The first Event will be at Wills Park on Feb 12th, 2011 – and the Series Finale Event will be back at Lake Russell Sept 10-11, 2011. (remember you can book Cottages or Campsites starting on Oct 10th, 2010)
The series continues to have Events in the Western, Southern, Northern and Eastern areas around Metro Atlanta, utilizing some of Georgia’s finest courses.
To allow even better player planning, the individual signup windows are 6-7 weeks in advance for each Event.

Event #1 Wills Park – FEB 12th - Alpharetta, GA - Individual Event signup begins Jan 1st, 2011

The SERIES will continue to improve in 2011!
Thanks to all who have been a part of the Series in 2008, 2009, and 2010 - and if you missed out in the first 3 years, YOU CAN FIND OUT WHAT THE GSSS IS ABOUT IN 2011!
Some of the changes that took place in the past to make your SERIES experience better continue in 2011.
The 50/50 basket raffle for each Event continues in 2011. Tickets can be purchased for $1 each, 4 for $3 or 8 for $5. There is NO LIMIT to the amount of tickets purchased. All monies collected at each Event will be split 50/50 with the winning number getting half of all the monies collected, and the other share going to the GSSS Charity for 2011 - The EDGE Program. In 2010 the winners’ share of the 50/50 kitty was worth over 75 bucks on average at each Event!
5 tickets will be drawn at each Event with prizes awarded to each of the 5 (last one drawn wins the 50/50 kitty) and each of those 5 tickets will kept for the drawing at the end of the Series for a Sportcatcher basket! (Don't let Wes win another one
)There will be a 1 in 30 chance to win the basket as in the past, plus a great chance to win some extra cash or goodies at each Event.
Seeing that all GSSS CTPS are always free and not buy-in, you can take your normal 3-10 dollars usually spent on CTP buy-ins and spend it on Raffle tickets.
The money raised for EDGE during the Series will be returning to Georgia and be committed to GROWING Disc Golf in Georgia Schools and Parks.

There will be no changes to the Series Points Bonus payouts, and you will still need to only play in 3 of the first 5 Events to qualify for the payouts. there were 20+ people that took advantage and qualified in 2010)
Signup for all 6 Events at one time begins November 1st and will run until December 31st, 2010 or until 22 (TWENTY TWO) spots are sold ONLY.
More info later!
