A huge and mighty THANK YOU to all who participated in the event!  I had a fantastic time playing in the event and in meeting so many new people!  You all made the event a fun time and a success!  I would also like to thank our sponsors again for their support, this event could not have happened without them, especially DoMyOwnPestControl.com!  In the end we raised $1200.00 for Anthony!  He was very grateful when he received the funds, plus really touched by the disc signed by friends and disc golf lovers!

Thank you once again for the support you gave!

With registrations closed, and the event 12 days away, you might ask what's next?  Here is what we are planning for the day of the event:
9-10AM flex start time (All participants must sign-in and get their player pack at this time) 
12:00PM  All groups should be back and have their score cards turned in. (Awards will be given while CTP is going on.  There will be a grand prize, plus a prize for 2nd and 3rd place runners up.)
12:15PM We will start a CTP contest, open to everyone even if you did not play in the Ace Race Event.  (CTP is a closest to the pin contest, everyone throws discs from the same spot aiming to get the closest to the basket).  We have some great prizes lined up, more details as we get closer. Unlimited # of throws, each for $1 per throw.  You can throw any disc golf disc, not only the ace race prototype.

Here are some other ways to help support Anthony:

Come get your picture taken at the event (even if you are not playing).  We will have a professional photographer at the event capturing all the fun and we will be sending photos of friends and family to Anthony.

Sign the discs: we will be sending Ace Race discs to Anthony signed by friends and family in show of our support for him and his family at this time.

Donate money: We will be collecting donations throughout the day (9AM-1PM).  Stop by anytime!

Any questions please contact Derek O'Neil (derek.oneil5@gmail.com)

We currently have 33 participants signed up to participate in the Ace Race Against Cancer!  This is going to be a whole lot of fun!!!
Announcing the 2012 Ace Race Player Pack!  2 Z-Line Plastic discs, which appear to be stable long range discs, but are also classified as hybrid discs.  I'm very excited to go out and try these new discs out at the ace race!  Register today!  (really, this is the last day to pre-register! Once I order the packs there may be limited player packs available and thus entry spots for the event!)

The Discraft Ace Race being held in Brigham City, UT has teamed up with The Share the Love 2012 Campaign to raise money for Anthony Roring and his family as he battles against Leukemia.  For more information about the campaign go here: http://sharethelove2012.blogspot.com/

Your entry fee will pay for your player pack and 25% of your entry fee will go to Anthony and his family.  We will also be selling mulligans (for those of you who don't golf/ disc golf, it is a redo shot on any throw) and 100% of the mulligan fees will also go directly to the Roring family. 

This is also a chance to come out and show your personal support as we will be taking pictures of the event as well as signing disc golf discs and sending them to Anthony to show our support during such his tremendous trials.

Please contact me at derek.oneil5@gmail.com for more information.  (All registrations will be due by July 26th.)  Stay tuned for more information!!!
