**** Lodging info ****

The Broadway Inn is offering all players in this year's event a special rate of $108 plus 7% tax for Friday, June 15 and Saturday, June 16. You can call them at 406-532-3300 and mention Zoo Town Open to receive this rate. Rooms with two Queen beds have been set aside for the event. They have a newly renovated bar and grill in addition to their other amenities. You must book by June 1st to get this rate. There are several other large events happening in Missoula that weekend so this is the best rate we could get at a good hotel.

Primitive camping is available at Sky Ranch for $10 per night per unit. You can contact Sky ranch at 406-825-4069 to reserve your site.

Many players in the past have stayed at the KOA in Missoula. They have declined to offer us a discount, but if you would like to stay there, you can contact them at 406-549-0881.

ZTO pool assignments, Juniors info, waitlist, and more

Lot's of info in this post regarding pool assignments, Juniors info, waitlist, and more

We have decided to move the FP40 division to Sky Ranch for both Saturday rounds. Please help spread the word about this.

JUNIORS

We will once again be offering a Junior division for the ZTO! Juniors will play 1 round only on Sudnay, June 17th, at Linda Vista Golf Course playing from shorter Junior tees. Juniors can sign up online at http://www.gardencityflyers.org/site/node/2046 or in person at Linda Vista on Sunday morning. Cost is $15. The tournament will pay for all PDGA fees for Juniors. They need to be at Linda Vista by 7:00 AM to register. Juniors tee time will be at 7:20. All Juniors will receive a player's pack valued at over twice their entry fee as well as payouts for all competitors!

There has been a lot of movement on the waitlist in the past week and several of the people listed above have been invited, so if you are looking to play this year's ZTO, email Brian at brianbjortomt@yahoo.com with Zoo Town Open in the title to be placed on the waitlist.

As you may have heard, Missoula is currently experiencing flooding to the level that has not been seen in about 100 years. Both Blue Mtn and Sky Ranch are unaffected by this, but Linda Vista is currently dealing with it in a major way. The Bitterroot river crested last week and is on a downward trend. Once the river reaches a certain level, the crew at LV can begin pumping the water from the fairways into their ponds and in turn into the river. We are expecting that to happen later this week. We do have a back up plan in case LV is unusable, but as of now, we are still expecting to use Linda Vista for events on Friday, June 15th and Sunday, June 17th's competition, but we'll keep you informed if anything changes.

ZTO Course Maps, Course Assignments, and Course Notes

Course Maps, Course Assignments, and Course Notes

Course Maps have been attached to the first post in this thread

*** Sky Ranch ***

All Amateur Divisions and FP40 will play 2 rounds at Sky Ranch on Saturday, June 16

The course is set up in the ZTO layout and will have tee signs in place later this week. Download the map below to guide you until then. There is also a map at Hole 1.

NO SMOKING OR VAPING ON THE COURSE!!! It is permitted in the parking lot ONLY

Dogs must be on a leash at all times

Unfortunately we were not able to secure a lunch sponsor for Sky Ranch, but there will be a catered lunch available for purchase from Ekstroms Stage Station located about 1/4 up the road from the course. They serve large portions of good hand-made food. The tournament is covering part of the cost for lunch. You MUST pre-purchase your lunch when you check-in for $7. Menu will be available at Check-in

*** Blue Mountain ***

All Pro Divisions except FP40 will play 2 rounds at Blue
Mountain on Saturday, June 16

The alternate basket locations for 15 and 17 have been staked and flagged out. Baskets will be in place during the afternoon and evening of Thursday, June 14th only

The alternate tee pad for hole 11 has been marked. It plays from between the two cones in the first parking area to the regular basket. The OB will be in place the afternoon of Thursday, June 14th through Saturday.

Hole 18 OB has been set up

Parking is always an issue at Blue Mountain. It is legal to park in any of the three parking areas along the gravel road leading to Tournament Central. When they are full, you may park on the left side of the road - facing downhill - ONLY. We will have people directing traffic to help with this on Saturday morning.

The Hilton Garden Inn and Blue Canyon will be providing lunch on a free will donation basis. All donations will go to the Educational Disc Golf Experience program.

*** Linda Vista Golf Course ***

All divisions will play 1 round at Linda Vista on Sunday, June 17th

A map will be posted later this week

ABSOLUTELY NO OUTSIDE ALCOHOL PERMITTED. Food, beer, wine, and other drinks are available in the Cafe in the clubhouse.

Parking - We would like as many people as possible to park in back around and behind the clubhouse. We will have people directing traffic both Friday and Sunday to help with this.

Player Check-In will be available in the Conference Room of the golf course on Friday afternoon from 1:30 - 7:30

Clinic with Jay and Des Reading and friends on Friday at 4:30

Random Draw Doubles on Friday at 5:30 hosted by Jay and Des Reading $10

We are hoping to have carts available for rent on Friday and pull carts available for rent on both Friday and Sunday. More on that to come.
