3rd Annual Next Adventure Amateur Championships

3rd Annual Next Adventure Amateur Championships

They say time flies when your having fun, and they're right. The (NAAC) has come and gone one more time and it was definitely one fun filled action packed weekend. Only in its third year, this event has become the Northwest primer Am only disc golf tournament. A event not to me missed, with registration filling up lighting quick from golfers looking forward to a weekend of good company, good food, Pier Park and hopes of becoming a champion. Welcome to the NAAC!

11 holes deep on day 1
 
Team Next Adventure was in full flight for the weekend with everyone either competing or lending a helping hand where they could. For me, it was just another day in the office at pier park. Try to avoid the awesomely tall trees and land gently by the basket for a close putt. Pier is always a challenge especially on game day.

Big thanks to Firefly Disc Promotions.The NAAC wouldn't be what it is without Ryan Gwillim and Steve Carson. It's truly an awesome thing when you get Tournament Directors who know how to raise the bar and make a tourney run super smooth. My favorite new addition this year was the Fantasy disc contest. other than the competition on the course Firefly set up a bracket for anybody who wanted to join in and choose 4 players to earn them points. The winners took home prizes and first place won a innova traveler basket

Another new thing for this years NAAC was the skins game. The top 4 players with the lowest score regardless of division got to battle for $100 Next Adventure money per hole. Also be on the lookout for video of the Final 9 and other festivities from the weekend coming soon.
