Published DateLACONIA — The Mystic Meadows, home of Tavern 27 and Jade Trace Golf, will be hosting the 2013 Snowshoe Disc Golf World Championship, to take place on Saturday February 23 at noon and will benefit Better Together, a Lakes Region initiative working to benefit the community.
Teams of two will compete for the lowest course score and the title of the first ever Snowshoe Disc Golf Champions in the Lakes Region. Teams consist of two players wearing snowshoes playing with a regulation size disc. The Mystic Meadows also has snowshoes to lend while supplies last.
Individuals that show up as a single to play will be paired with other individuals to form a team. Teams will be paired up and play as a foursome. To play the game disc is advanced from the tee box to the basket by being tossed from one team mate to another until one team mate can put the disc in the basket. The number of tosses, including the toss into the basket, is the team score for the hole.
The team with the lowest score will be crowned the world champions and win prizes. The entry fee of $50 will be collected and the proceeds from the event will benefit the local organization, Better Together, a rassroots effort to rekindle the spirit of neighborhood and community in the Lakes Region.
Better Together has inspired programs like Got Lunch. Their meetings are held on the 4th Thursday of each month at the Laconia Middle School Library from 4-6 p.m. New Action teams are forming all the time. Call 603-581-1571 for more information on Better Together.
Those looking to support the effort, but not wishing to play can participate as a spectator. The Mystic Meadows is also accepting One Toss Jackpot prizes. Like hole-in-one prizes, the prize is given out if a player lands the disc in the basket on the first toss.
Current prizes include: Ippolito's Furniture – Recliner valued at $499; Burrito Me – 1 burrito a week for a year valued at $500; MC Cycle and Sport – a pair of Dior Snowshoes valued at $230; Belknap - 2 Snow Tires valued at $250; Tavern 27 - $500 in Gift Certificates; Jade Trace Golf $500 in Golf Gift Certificates.
