The IAIA Amateur Classic (IAC), sponsored by the IAIA Disc Golf Club, Infinite Discs, and Desert Disc Golf, is a two-round, amateur-only PDGA C-Tier event at the Institute of American Indian Arts (IAIA) Disc Golf Course in Santa Fe, New Mexico on Saturday, April 8, 2017.
Registration for all divisions is $45 and opens on January 30, 2016 at Infinitediscs.com and closes on March 17, 2016. The IAC will take a maximum of 54 amateur entries. You do not need to be a PDGA member to play the event, however a $10 Single Day PDGA registration fee applies for all players who are not PDGA current. Please check the appropriate box on the form and pay the fee if you are not PDGA current.
Each player will receive a custom hot-stamped Discmania Golf Disc (choose from a selection of FD, PD, PD2, and MD3 in a variety of plastics, including the new Luster line), a custom tournament t-shirt, and additional swag. Be sure to choose your shirt size when registering.
Payout for all divisions will be in the form of gift certificates to Infinite Discs, where you can choose from individually photographed discs from an inventory of 25,000+ discs.
In addition to two rounds of disc golf, the IAC features a players party at the Santa Fe Brewing Company (SFBC) immediately following the event. SFBC is generously picking up the tab for the first round of drinks!
We will raffle off a MVP Black Hole Pro, a heavy-duty 24-chain portable basket by MVP DIscs at the party; tickets are $10 each and all raffle proceeds benefit the IAIA Disc Golf Club.
