As of September 17, the Play It Again Sports Jonesboro Open – Powered by Prodigy is still under Phase I of the DGPT Guidelines. With that said, everyone that plays in the AM Side of the Jonesboro Open will be allowed to watch the MPO and FPO action from designated Spectator Zones! There will be three different zones scattered around the course at the best viewing locations. From Zone 1 you will be able to see Hole 1, 2, 9, 10 & 18; from Zone 2 you will be able to see Hole 4 & 5; from Zone 3 you will be able to see Hole 5, 6, 14, 16 & 17. No one other than Tournament Staff and Volunteers will be allowed outside of the Spectator Zones. In other words, AM Players are not allowed to follow the cards from hole-to-hole.
Volunteers will be allowed outside of the Zones when actively working. Volunteers are needed as Spotters, Marshalls, Parking Attendants and Live Scorers. Spotters will be located in one place throughout the day. Some Marshalls will be inside the Zones and other Marshalls will be on the course. Parking Attendants will be outside of the course running a shuttle and/or directing people where to park. Once the MPO lead card starts, 1:00 p.m., the Parking Attendants will be able to come to the course. Live Scorers will walk with a card from start to finish to keep score on U-Disc.
A Volunteer sign up will go live on Friday, September 18 at 12:00 noon Central Time on Disc Golf Scene. The title of the event is “Jonesboro Open VOLUNTEER Sign Up”. There are only 60 Volunteer Spots available! Volunteers will be asked to pay $10.00 to help offset the costs of a shirt to wear and keep by Prodigy Disc Golf. The $10.00 is the same if you sign up for one shift, or if you work all weekend. Volunteers that sign up for all three days will be provided half price food tickets to use at the BBQ stand located at Tournament Central on Friday and Saturday. Volunteers that go above and beyond may receive more goodies at the end of the tournament as well!
Players in the AM Side of the Tournament can sign up to be a Volunteer.
Spectators- IF we fill all Volunteer spots to ensure we have enough Marshalls on the course and Parking Attendants outside the course, we MAY open a limited number of Spectator Tickets. Spectators will follow the same rules as the AM Players; Spectators will not be allowed to follow any cards, they will watch from the three Spectator Zones. All Spectator tickets will be sold online and you will pick up your wristband at the gate. We will ONLY open Spectator Tickets IF we fill all Volunteer shifts. This decision will be made by Friday, September 25.
