KAMSACK - The first leg of the 2022 Legacy Co-op Tour was held Saturday in Kamsack.
And, after 36 baskets on a fine fall day Regina’s Gage McKay topped the open field with a fine score of minus-seven, five tosses better than runner-up Ian McKay of Regina at minus-two. Taylor Mountain also from Regina was third at plus-one.
On the junior side Ryan Fielding from Wadena topped the field at plus-two, just ahead of Chase McKay of Balcarres and plus-four, while first time participant Melissa Fielding of Wadena sat third at plus-58.
The annual tour, organized by the Parkland Association of Disc Golf will again be hitting three area courses this fall.
Next up on the tour is the Churchbridge Open Oct. 8.
“This one should be fun with lots of fall colours, and of course the challenges of a really nice 12-basket course,” said director Trevor Lyons in a previous interview with Yorkton This Week.
The final stop will be a Halloween-themed event in Yorkton Oct. 29.
“You don’t have to wear a Halloween costume, but we won’t stop you either,” said Lyons.
There will be various categories at each tournament, with those playing in the open challenged with playing two rounds, while those out just for fun will play only one.
This year, to encourage new participants who just want to come out for fun, the ‘amateur’ category will have an entry fee of $10 and a disc – any disc you have that isn’t quite what you hoped can be offered up.
At the end of the day participants will be able to select one disc from the pile – starting with the best score to the lowest.
“We hope this will get the non-competitive player out,” said Lyons. “We all have discs we’ve bought that don’t quite fit our play style, so you can use it to enter, and take something new home to have fun trying out.”
