Do it for the dogs

Help raise money for the Quad-City Animal Welfare Center, or QCAWC, at the Tenth Annual Disc'n For Dogs Ace Race at Camden Park, Milan, Ill., Saturday, Sept. 20. All proceeds go to the QCAWC.

The Disc'n For Dogs Ace Race is for anyone who can throw a disc golf disc and wants a shot at our top prize! Camden Park's original disc golf course's elevation changes and wooded areas are used to their fullest with 26 shortened holes, increasing the hole-in-one opportunities. Most holes average 100 feet or less. Unlimited mulligans, sold for $1 each, will increase the odds of qualifying for the final round.

Pre-register for the Tenth Annual Disc'n For Dogs Ace Race at Iron Lion Disc Golf Supply - cash only, please - in Moline (2630 16th St). or online here. If you want a t-shirt, you must pre-register! Also, if you'd like to upgrade to the dri-fit shirt, there is an additional charge of $5. IF YOU DO NOT PRE-REG, YOU DO NOT GET A SHIRT!

Day-of registration for the Ace Race opens at 8 a.m. and closes at 9 a.m. in the lower bowl near Camden's sixth hole. The entry fee is $20 (no shirt, no player's pack). Preregistered entrants are guaranteed a player's pack containing a Disc'n For Dogs t-shirt, plus other items. All players are welcome regardless of ability. A basic disc golf putter is optimal, but a standard backyard flying disc could be used.

Mulligans will be sold for $1 each. Unlimited mulligans allowed during first two rounds. No mulligans allowed during final round.

It takes an ACE or 7 points to earn an entry into third and final round. However, once you're in the final round, you will receive a throw at each hole for every 5 points scored in the qualifying rounds.

Final round is played sudden death in a single 9-hole loop and then a 100-foot, take-turns-throwing ring of fire until an ace claims the top prize.
