One round, two round, three rounds … play!The West Texas Disc Golf Champions Tournament — started in 2004 — is coming back to Comanche Trail Park. The tournament is set for April 21 and April 22. “The tournament will be three rounds, with two rounds happening (April 21) and one round taking place (April 22),” Chanz Reed, tournament director, said. Registration will occur from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. April 21 if spots are still available. Early registration can be done online at PDGA.com. A players' meeting will take place at 9:30 a.m.Registration fees differ for each category. Juniors' registration is $30, recreational is $40, intermediate is $45, advanced is $70, open women is $75, grandmaster and master is $80 and open men is $85. There is a $10 discount for PDGA members.“If you are going to register the day of the tournament, we ask you bring the paperwork showing you are up to date on PDGA membership,” Reed said. “We also want people to know space is limited and if all the spots are filled, we won't be able to take registration that day.”Trophies will be given to the top three in each division. The first 75 registrations will receive player packages including a T-shirt and disc. Discs will be available in 11 different colors. Last year, there were 93 participants, and tournament organizers are expecting more this year. For those unable to make the upcoming tournament, another tournament will be held in October at the Birdwell Park course. “The tournament in October will just include two rounds and will be completed in one day,” Reed said.
