MONDAY – Pokeys & Bartari Games Night

Games Night Overview

People Needed: 6 individuals, 2 for Pokeys, 4 for Bartari

Gender Restrictions: No gender restrictions

Supper: Provided for all players at either Pokeys or Bartari

Networking Lounge: TBD

Game Play

This is a very unique event to kick off the 2017 Saskatoon Corporate Challenge! With two tournaments happening concurrently, you will have to choose your players accordingly. Is their strength pinball, or is it Mario Kart? You choose your players!! 4:30 instructions and games will start at 5:00 SHARP at both locations!

Pokeys Pinball Tournament – 211B 33rd Street West

Play pinball as a kid? Channel that inner youth and get ready for this competition! You will have 2 team members at Pokeys for the tournament. Play your hardest as you each work your way through the tournament bracket! Tournament will be provided at the venue.

Pinball is a type of arcade game, in which points are scored by a player manipulating one or more steel balls on a play field inside a glass-covered cabinet called a pinball machine. The primary objective is to score as many points as possible. Points are earned when the ball strikes different targets on the play field. A drain is situated at the bottom of the play field, partially protected by player-controlled plastic bats called flippers. A game ends after all the balls fall into the drain a certain number of times.

All players will receive a food voucher for supper to order at your convenience.

Bartari Mario Kart – 511 20 St W

You will need 4 players at this event! All games are available but tonight we will only play Mario Kart.

All players will compete in go-kart races, controlling one of a selection of characters. You might want to practice because one of the features is the use of various power-up items obtained by driving into item boxes laid out on the course. These power-ups include mushrooms to give players a speed boost, Koopa Shells to be thrown at opponents, and banana peels that can be laid on the course as hazards. The type of weapon received from an item box is often random, though sometimes influenced by the player’s current position in the race.

It’ll be fun and action packed. Your placement 1st-4th at the end of the race will determine where you land in the standings.

All players will receive a food voucher for supper to order at your convenience.

TUESDAY – DREAM Disc Golf

Date: September 12th, 2017

Location: Diefenbaker Park

Time: 4:30 – 8:00 PM

 

Dream Disc Golf Overview

People Needed: 4

Gender Restrictions: No gender restrictions

Supper: Provided for all players at Diefenbaker Park

Networking Lounge: Location TBD

Game Play

Brand new event, welcome to the DREAM Disc Golf! Never played before, no problem at all! Each team has 4 individuals with no gender restrictions.  A demonstration will be given between 4:30PM before the event officially starts so be sure to be on time!!

Rules 

We will divide your team into pairs, and you will play with another company in a 4-some. As a 4-some, you will complete all 18 holes, keeping track of the other companies score and any ruling discussions.

Disc Golf is played like traditional “ball” golf, but with flying discs instead of balls and clubs. One point (stroke) is counted each time the disc is thrown and when a penalty is incurred. We will be playing as a double scramble. We will have pairs of 2 individuals, and you will play together and always only count your ‘best shot’. This means that both of you throw a disc as a drive and as a team you decide which one you like the best. Then you both go get your disc and bring them to the best one and shoot from there for your second shot…and so on. So as a pair you only get one score for the whole team on each hole. The goal is to play each hole in the fewest strokes possible. The player with the lowest total strokes for the entire course wins.

Tee Throws

Each hole begins with a tee throw. Tee throws must be completed within or behind the designated tee area.

Lie

The lie is the spot where the player’s previous throw has landed. Mark lie with a mini disc or turn over the thrown disc, directly towards the hole or designated fairway. The player’s subsequent throw is made from directly behind the marked lie.

Throwing Order

The team with the least amount of strokes on the previous hole is the first to tee off on the next hole. After teeing off, the player whose disc is farthest from the hole always throws first.

Fairway Throws

Fairway throws must be made from directly behind the lie. A run-up and normal follow-through, after release, is allowed, unless the lie is within 10 meters of the target. Any shot within 10 meters of the target requires that the player not move past the lie until the disc is at rest.

Dogleg (or Mandatory)

A dogleg is one or more designated trees or poles in the fairway that must be passed as indicated by arrows. Until the dogleg is passed the closest foot to the dogleg must be on the lie when the disc is released.

Completion Of Hole

A disc that comes to rest in the Disc Hole basket or chains constitutes successful completion of that hole. Once completed, you need to record the other teams score to keep them honest. Your score is the amount of throws you had (one ‘stroke’ from each location).

Unplayable Lie

Any disc that comes to rest above the ground is considered an unplayable lie. The disc must be thrown from the lie on the ground, directly underneath the unplayable lie, relocated to avoid damage to the vegetation.

Out Of Bounds

If any area of O.B. is visible between the disc and O.B. line, then the disc is considered O.B. A throw that lands out of bounds, must be played from a point 3 feet in bounds from where the disc went out of bounds. Permanent water hazards and public roads are always out of bounds.

Penalties

Recreational players will not be penalized for rule infractions. The other team will keep you honest.

Course Courtesy

  • Stand behind the player who is throwing until throw is complete.
  • Remove disc from Disc Hole after completing the hole
  • Do not alter the course (trees, bushes, etc.) in any way.

 What you need to bring

  • Golfing shoes – runners, flip flops… anything goes
  • You can bring your own set of discs but one disc will be provided per player
  • Supper will be provided at Diefenbaker Park
