Tournament Directing

In addition to being an active player, I’m also an experienced TD.  I have run over 200 tournaments of various formats.  That includes close to 100 PDGA sanctioned events for which I have been either the TD, assistant TD, or a staff member.

These are the events I run on an annual basis at my course, Dragan Field, in Auburn Maine:

late January/early February – Frostbite Doubles – winter fun

first Sunday in March – Ice Doubles – winter fun

late March/early April – Jokers Wild Doubles – winter fun

first Saturday in June – Dragan Disc Golf Classic – PDGA B-tier

late July – GreenHorn Tournament – beginner/teaching tournament

early August – GreenHorn Doubles – beginner friendly teaching tournament

first Sunday in November – Thorndike Memorial – PDGA C-tier

mid December – Santa’s Doubles – Christmas themed fun

Additionally, I help co-TD a number of events at other courses:

second Saturday in May – a Women’s only PDGA tournament (Farmers Daughters Open at CR Farm in odd years, Women’s Global Event in even years)

late July – Ackers Acres Open – PDGA B-tier with Bobby Harris

mid/late September – Porcupine Ridge Open – PDGA B-tier with Aaron Wilmot

fall – Eric C Yetter Champions Cup – PDGA B-tier at Tyler State Park, Newtown PA with John Birkrem

Also, I am open to offering advice and counsel to folks wanting to start running events or wanting to improve their existing events.  Contacting me via the contact page or on social media is welcome.  I’ve also put some of my advice on the site…
