Warm-up round event!  The good folks of the Inland Flight Club will be hosting a warm-up event on the Saturday before the Showdown.  Come out and play, have a good time and dial your shots in.  I will be there to join in on the fun.  Go to their Facebook page for the details.

Flash some more! (update July 1) More good news: our friends at Team D n D (Drunk and Disorderly) have likewise added $300 to be added to the payouts to be spread across the women's divisions. They're going to clean up!  Thank you Team D n D!

But wait, there's more!  Discmania has come aboard as a generous sponsor that is going to make the Amateur player packs a lot nicer.  Thank you Discmania!

FLASH!  "TURN AND FADE is proud to announce its sponsorship of the women's divisions at the Sky High Showdown. We're doing two things: first, we've added $300 to the payouts across the women's divisions, and second, we're paying 50% of the green fees for the first 20 women who sign up! Registration opens this Friday at 7:00 pm!"

So registration for the women's division just got less expensive while the women's payout is going to remain HUGE!


We're back...

2017 Sky High Showdown Presented by Innova Champion - Saturday/Sunday, August 26/27, 2017 (Pro/Am PDGA C-Tier and SoCal Series)

Late summer, hotter than Hades down in the flats, what's a person to do?  How about heading up the hill to SoCal's favorite mountain course for a weekend of disc golf.   

We will be playing two rounds of 27 holes, one round per day, long layout on Saturday and the shorter layout on Sunday.  There will be two pools of up to 108 players each.  Pool A will play Saturday afternoon/Sunday morning and Pool B will play Saturday morning/Sunday afternoon.  While subject to some change based on registration, probable Pool A will be Pros/MA1 and Pool B will be the other Am divisions.  Awards will take place for each pool after completion of the second round.  

All spots are now open first come, first serve.

All Amateur players will receive a generous INNOVA players pack which will include a custom 2017 Showdown stamped premium disc, tee shirt, hat and more.  Pros are playing for money.

There must be three players in a given division for that division to play in the tournament.  If there are less than three players in that division when the event is filled I will contact those registered and offer them a chance to play in another division or receive a refund.  I will be happy to add more junior divisions as requested.  Contact me if you know a junior who would prefer to play in their own division.  

Amateur payouts (scrip redeemable in the Sky High Pro Shop) and pro cash payouts will be determined after deducting costs which will include the player's pack (for Ams), course green fees, sanctioning and insurance, and fees of $3 to the PDGA and $2 to SoCal Disc Golf Association for all.  $10 will be charged and paid to the PDGA for each non- or non-current member, $5 additional if not current SoCal DGC member. 

A point of clarification for SoCal Disc Golf Club members: Successful completion of the two rounds will result in you being awarded 15 base participation points from this event for the 2017 series.  At the 2015 Annual Meeting the membership voted to award 5 participation points per 18 holes completed; two rounds at Sky High = 54 holes = 15 base participation points.  For more points beat people in your division!

Folks in the Inland Empire are really generous and there will be substantial added cash to Pro and Am payouts.  Moreover, there are some who very much want to grow women's participation so all women's divisions payouts will be quite hefty.  Specifically the Turn and Fade Disc Golf Foundation has committed $300 to be added to the payouts across all of the women's divisions - come and get it ladies!

CFR discs?  You bet.  I'm sworn to secrecy for the time being but suffice to say you'll probably be the first one in your neighborhood to have one of these.  Two molds, enough said.  Fundraiser discs with the custom tourney stamp are available for $25 each and all proceeds will go to the payout.  INNOVA hooked us up.  Sweet!  

As of this time (June 10) there are a fair number of campsites available at the adjacent Table Mountain Campground.  Here's the link if you want to camp there, first come, first serve:  https://www.recreation.gov/camping/table-mountain-angeles/r/campgroundDetails.do?contractCode=NRSO&parkId=73585

Thanks go out to INNOVA Champion Disc Golf, Disc Golf Values, Audet Construction, the Inland Flight Club, Turn and Fade, Team Drunk and Disorderly, The Hyzer Project, Discmania, and Amando, Deseree and the good folks at Mt. High.  A special thanks to Suzette Simons for directing the Showdown faithfully for many years - enjoy the eclipse!

Hope to see you there,

Bill Maury-Holmes
