Elvis, Fling with the King

Welcome to the "Elvis - Fling with the King" Facebook information page! The Elvis Fling with the King Tournament is proudly hosted by the Tupelo Disc Golf Association in conjunction with the Tupelo Elvis Festival. This Elvis Presley Festival, held in the birthplace of the King of Rock and Roll, celebrates the musical heritage of the town that shaped the early years of our nation's leading cultural icon. The tournament, in it's sixth year, incorporates Tupelo's most favored course at Veteran's Memorial Park ... located in the neighborhood of Elvis' childhood. The Weekend Needless to say, there will be plenty of disc golf happening this weekend. But that's not all, the Elvis festival is jam-full of food, music, and entertainment. Come early and enjoy some of the festivities. It'll be fun for everyone. All the tournament details, including registrations, course layout, available merchandise, and the overall happenings of the weekend will be advised soon. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions or need more information.

[05/13/14]   Elvis Fling with the King 2014

Veteran's Park - Tupelo, Mississippi
Saturday & Sunday, June 7-8 2014

For the past three years FWTK has been two long rounds over two days. This year we are going back to a total of three rounds, 2 on Saturday and 1 long one on Sunday.

Saturday will begin with the player's meeting at 9:00am with an estimated initial round start of 9:30, or as soon thereafter depending on any possible delays caused by the "Running with the King" event also held at Veterans Park.

The morning round will be on the original Veterans course and consist of 17 holes, some of which will be tweaked for a little extra tournament challenge. All cards will be divisional (as best we can manage) and all divisions will tee from the Am pads. Most baskets will be in their "B" positions.

The afternoon round will be on Thunderchief's 18 hole course.

We're working toward providing lunch at Veterans and will advise more details on this later.

Sunday: There will be no need to gather for Sunday's round. Just show up at your designated hole and be ready to tee off at 9:30am. Sunday's round will be a combination of Veteran's original course combined with some challenging tweaks to the Thunderchief course. It will be quite similar to the past two years layout. Advance and Pro divisions will play from the Pro pads on Sunday.

Awards have been ordered for the following divisions:
Men's Pro
Women's Pro
Men's Grand Master
Men's Advance Master
Men's Advance
Men's Am
Women's Am
Junior

(3+ to make a division)

The tournament is not sanctioned. Put those dollars in the ace pot and let's keep em' local.

Tournament Directors:
Grayson Robbins -- 662-891-2656 -- [email protected]
Keith Teeple
Jason Cross

Registration will be at Veterans DGC, behind Hole #1 at the Rockin' Robin Snow Cone stand on Friday from Noon until 7pm and Saturday morning from 7:30am until the players meeting.

Alcoholic and narcotic refreshments are illegal and will not be tolerated at this tournament Just keep it clean so all can have an enjoyable tournament.

Registration Fees:
Open Men: $50
Pro Women: $40
Pro Master/Grandmaster: $40
Advance Men: $40
Advance Master: $40
Am Men: $35
Am Women: $35
Novice/Junior/Recreational: $25

There will be the usual CTP's, putter contest, and a Ring of Fire! Possibly some additional events depending on how well the sponsor $$ roll in! Awards will be the traditional Midnight pottery plaques for all divisions and bricks for the overall winner's in Men, Women, and Juniors!

The Discraft Elvis discs for this year's tournament are limited. A few are allocated towards divisional winners and CTP's and hole sponsors are guaranteed the first ones! Hole sponsorships are $40. Give me a shout if you'd like one! Whoever buys/sells the most sponsorships (minimum three) will receive either their FWTK registration paid or an Elvis disc.

Hopefully, the above covers most everything. If not ..... any questions or concerns, please PM me. Look forward to seeing you!

Appreciate is extended to our tournament sponsors: Philips Garden Center, The Blue Canoe, Mr. Paul Poland, Matthew and Mandi Gardner, Rebel Bookstore, Rockin Robin Shaved Ice, The Wiseman Family, and the TDGA!

Congratulations to the Ethan Warren as the 2013 Putting Champion, to Richard Loew for busting the 1st round ace pot, and to all the CTP winners!

My thanks to Keith Teeple, Jason Cross, Daniel Philley, and Vickie Palmer (and Tony) for all their assistance. Ya'lls help made everything run smooth!

It was two grueling rounds of some extremely challenging hole layouts with even more grueling out of bounds and water. As promised, not your normal Vet's layout! I hope all that had the opportunity to play enjoyed it's challenge ... and the tournament. Thank you for participating!
