In order to encourage early pre-registration, and because it seems to be a fair way to allocate scarce resources at a discounted price, anyone who pre-registers can also pre-select one of several players packs we have in limited numbers. These are the player packs:

The Throw Innova Player Pack. Your choice of one tournament stamped CFR Destroyer, or one CFR T-Rex, or one Star Excaliber, or one Star Wraith or two DX San Marino Rocs. Later today I hope to post a spreadsheet with colors and weights on the message board. The Junior Girls club is working on that right now. If you want one for your player pack [or two San Marinos] you can also specify color and weight from the list I will post later. These will have the Aztec sun dude on them and will also be available for Brass, 18 or 20 each.

The Throw Discraft Player Pack. These are worth 20 Brass towards my already discounted Discraft. I'm not doing a Discraft order for Lombard because I'm doing a DGA order for Lombard, so my Discraft selection will be less than normal. I have a limited number of these. I'm also holding off on Discraft this time because I want to get a basket next time.

The Throw DGA Player Pack. These are worth 20 Brass towards DGA which should be priced similarly to Discraft. We'll have Rogues, Tsunamis, Blowflies, Shockwaves, plus whatever we still have from last year, Riptides, Titanics, Reefs. We'll also have some hats, shirts and other DGA swag. Tom McManus, if you are saving for the DGA basket, these are good towards that too.

I cannot guarantee that any of this will be available to those who do not pre-register. I just don't know if I will be able to create three special player pack certificates and finish trophies and get my beans and tomatoes planted this month. So I'll have to prioritize. I've already cut out TV watching and bocce in May! ;D

So Step 1 is pre-register. Once your name is up on or i have other confirmation that you have paid, you can select a player pack by requesting it here or communicating it to me some other way. When I confirm your request, that means it is bagged and in the player pack frozen waffle box with your name on the bag. Maple syrup is extra. The regular player pack is 15 Brass.

Think about combining an IOS tournament with a weekend family trip to the Windy City.

For IOS 2 the Cubs will be at home against the Colorado Rockies. The Brewers will be at home against the Houston Astros. The Cubs are playing day games and the Brewers have night games. ( and ( will get you to their websites.

Six Flags is open from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. each day. Their new thrill ride is the Dark Knight Coaster. (

Chicago also has an aquarium with a marine animal show, a planetarium and two major museums right downtown. ( is pretty good for getting information on this stuff.

You can pre-reg for the tournament at

Since the discontinuum site is currently not responding. Brett has posted that we will be playing concrete tees for both rounds this weekend.

I had the same problem.
Either show up Sat. or early Sun. That's all you can do.

We had 106 players today. We set up two extra holes and accomodated everyone. Our max-max is 110. For tomorrow 90 are pre-reged. If you want to get in Sunday, show up at 7:00 a.m. and I'll issue deli numbers to everyone who helps unload the van.
