2012 TEXAS TEAMS EVENT
November 17-18, 2012 at Live Oak, Texas
Every course in Texas is invited to send a team. Teams may also represent schools, ultimate teams, or other organizations. Some courses send more than one team.
Texas Teams has been a Texas Disc Golf tradition since 2000. Teams represent individual courses or other organizations from a particular area and are composed of players of varying skill levels. Players compete for their team in head-to-head match play in nine-hole rounds. Points, rather than strokes, are totaled from all of the team's rounds to determine the winning team.
The two-day tournament is much more than just competitive disc golf. It's an experience, a reunion, and a chance to see which community produces the most cohesive and talented team.
There are two divisions: Established and Merged. Every course or city is invited to send an Established team. Established teams have 9 players: 2 Pro, 2 Advanced, 2 Intermediate, 1 Master, 1 Amateur Woman, and one "swing" player (Pro Woman, Grand Master, or Advanced Master). Courses may send more than one Established team if space allows. Merged Teams consist of 6 players: 3 Advanced and 3 Intermediate and generally represent communities without pros. At Texas Teams 2011, we had 468 players.
$60 per player. Every player gets a full-color Millennium Disc, a tournament sweatshirt (Hoodies add $5 for a total of $65, plus $5 for 2XL & $8 for 3XL), a mini disc & Saturday night get-together. Each player will be getting a free raffle ticket upon check-in. 2 drawings will be held. One at each of the player's meeting Saturday morning. No extra raffle tickets will be sold so hold on to your ticket!
There will be trophies for the top teams, plus the TEAM LEAP Best Dressed Team Award and TEAM LEAP Most Spirited Team Award. We will be giving away additional prizes and items, and we will have a drawing for a basket. We will be offering the new Millennium Sirius Scorpius with a full color design as a great collector's item. Last year we gave out 200 additional custom designed discs with team photos for each team member that placed in the tournament or won special prizes. Please make sure you get your team picture taken Saturday during the day.
Saturday Night Get-Together:
We will host a get-together Saturday night as well and will share more details as it evolves. If anyone is interested in working with us on the Saturday night get-together they should email Dee. We hope you will attend the Saturday night party as this year we will be giving away more variety of shirts than before and it should be a lot of FUN for ALL.
Players are welcome to find the accommodations of their choice this year as the event is being held on City courses and not our private land. Please email us if you need help in finding a campground, hotel or an RV Park at firstname.lastname@example.org. There are plenty of choices within 10 minutes of the courses.
Also visit www.HillCountryPortal.com, which has great information about lodging, restaurants, and other fun things to do in this area.
We will not be offering any meals this year due to decreasing demand. There are multiple fast-food restaurants in the area, and most players pack their own lunch or eat at their campground. We may stock some water, Gatorade, soft drinks, and limited snacks for sale.
We welcome sponsors for event, and we will add your logo to this website, allow you to put up a banner, and make multiple announcements throughout the event. Please email us at email@example.com for sponsorship information.
