Attention Noble Disc Golfers (Frolfers)- Rotaract is hosting the 5th annual Plastic Pumpkin Klassic this weekend, October 4th at 10:00am, at Rotary Park by the Aquatic Center. The disc golf tournament will benefit Hospice of Northeast Missouri.

The tournament is a 2 man scramble meaning the team plays the best throw from each player. The course is only 9 holes, therefore we will be playing it twice for a total of 18 holes. Cash prizes will go to the top 3 teams. Mini games such as longest drive and closest to the pin will be played along the course and players will have a chance to win door prizes after their round. The price of entry is $10/person or $20 per team and you will sign up at the time of the event. If you don’t have a partner we will pair you with someone. If you don’t have frisbees, we have some we can rent out to you at no cost for the day. Breakfast and snacks will be provided on tournament day.

Please visit our Facebook page,  ATSU-Rotaract Plastic Pumpkin Klassic, and tell us you are going!
