On Saturday, April 27th at 10am the La Mirada Disc Golf Club held their "ACE RACE FOR THE ACE POOL" event. This event was held to give the tournament players from 2012 a chance to win the ACE pool that was accumulated during the 2012 year beginning in July. As it turned out this was the last ACE Pool hosted by the La Mirada Disc Golf Club.
There were 28 players in attendance from the 137 that had qualified. We started at 10am and began throwing on Tee #9 on the BACK-18 to the basket on #9. There were several fairly close shots, but no one hit the chains even after three turns. So after that Rick Ascheri, the Tournament Director created a new closer pin position. We setup a tee near the baseball field about 50 feet in from Tee #16 and threw to Basket #16. On the fourth round we finally had a winner, which was Mark Allen. Mark was a regular at the weekly and monthly events over the past several years so it was good to see him win. I had hoped that several people would actually hit the ACE from that position but no one else made it.
Mark is shown in the photo. He is the player to the right of the basket leaning against the basket. Mark won $420.00 for his 1.5 hour effort.
After the ACE race Rick Ascheri and Debbie Ascheri held a raffle to give away over 20 discs and tee shirts which were donated by Kenny Ascheri and other players for use in the weekly and monthly club tournaments.
I want to thank everyone for coming out. I had a great time and I know that everyone else had a great time. We look forward to seeing everyone on a regular basis at the La Mirada Disc Golf Monthly tournaments and hopefully at the Weekly Tournaments whenvever it moves back to Tuesday.
