Lost in Lennox Players Meeting

Players Meeting 2013
 
Welcome to Lost In Lennox 6 , Welcome to all, especially those who will travel from out of town  to attend this event. Nettle Gardens is a course that plays similar  to " links golf ". It's not about distance, it's about judgement, avoiding trouble, disc  control and selection. It requires a steady mental game and will allow many players the chance to use all their skills to capture victory.
 
We will be playing a schedule of 36 holes, 2 rounds ( 2x18 )  It is essential that groups ' spot all their shots ' and call the 3 minute search rulefor lost discs.
There are no bathrooms , the fastfood restaurants are a 3 minute drive into town from the course.
You are advised to bring your lunch and lots of liquids.
 
Blue Seal, an animal feed store, has kindly allowed us to use their parking space once again. Please do not park in front of their buisness, you will notice disc golf signs that will help guide you to the proper spaces. Please don't litter in the parking space.
 
I'd like to thank the ADGM and its membership for it's continued support and the volunteers who graciously helped make this tournament what it is.
 
Below you will find further information about the rules of play , hole particularities , hazards and Tee-pad assingments.

    Precautions

    The ground is uneven and players will traverse sections with tree stumps and hidden branches. Most wear their regular favorite disc golf shoe, the more sensitive should consider tougher footwear.

    fairways are tight, and offer little protection from wayward and  missed shots, your attention to all groups in play in your area is paramount to your safety on the course. Please consider this important.
