Ladies, please check the schedule! We've made some changes in order to make the experience more fun for everyone, and keeping the challenge where it belongs as well.

3/20/12 UPDATES!! UPDATES!!
OK Ladies, it's starting to narrow down to our BIG SHOW!! Please note we will be posting updates to this site with links to keep things moving along.
Today's updates regard registration late fees and guaranteeing your player's package. We've updated some information on FJ3 and FJ4 division costs and their playing schedule. Their base entry fees have been reduced thanks to Disc Nation who has stepped up to foster our growth and sponsor those fees!
The overall schedule has been modified slightly and may continue to shift so keep an eye out for that.
Our fundraising efforts are continuing. We would like to thank everyone who organized, staffed and played this past weekend's Texas States for their generous donations to our event. We're still seeking sponsoring caddies and volunteers in general. Sponsoring caddies receive a cool package including a commerative shirt and double walled tumbler (great for Southern Star!), Free Saturday lunch from Raising Cane's, and a player party invite at Stats Sports Bar and Grill. And the best part is they get to escort ladies playing disc golf. All that for only $25.00!
Everyone in the disc golf community is invited out to watch the final round at Spring Valley on Sunday, April 15th. Check back for updates as the event draws near.
