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
