The IAIA Amateur Classic (IAC), sponsored by the IAIA Disc Golf Club, Desert Disc Golf, Infinite Discs, and Innova Champion Discs 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 7, 2018. This unique amateur event provides players with an exceptional tournament experience and includes a players pack for every player, payouts through Infinitediscs.com, and trophies for division winners.
Registration for all divisions is $55 ($30 to player packs, $20 to payouts, $5 to course fees). It opens on January 29, 2018 at 6 pm at Infinitediscs.com and closes on March 9, 2016. You must have an Infinite Discs account and profile to register; no cash registrations will be accepted. 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.
Just as last year, the players packs will be fantastic. Each player will receive a custom hot-stamped Innova Champion Golf Disc--including Shimmmer Star Teebirds, Star Destroyers and Shrykes, Luster Roc3s, Glow Firebirds, and Color Glow Leopard3s and Shrykes. Each player will also receive a tournament t-shirt, and plenty of surprise swag. Be sure to choose your shirt size when registering.
Payout for all divisions will be in the form of Infinite Bucks on Infinitediscs.com where you can choose from individually photographed discs from an inventory of 25,000+ discs. Payouts will pay out to the top 40% of each division and are immediately applied to a players profile after the event.
