2013 MINNESOTA DOUBLES SERIES
The Minnesota Doubles Series is a series of disc golf doubles tournaments. Enjoy the spirit of competition in a low stress environment with an emphasis on having fun. These events land on Sundays. We will play 2 rounds with a break for lunch in between.
The format is Bring Your Own Partner Best Shot Doubles. There will be no “Wolf” or “Cali” option for individuals. Find a doubles partner! The focus is on fun and participation. So come out and have some fun with your friends at the Minnesota Doubles Series.
These events are sanctioned by the Minnesota Frisbee Association but are open to everyone. In addition to the tournament payouts, MFA Members compete for year end cash payouts! MFA Memberships will be available at these events.
Individuals statistics will be tracked regardless of your doubles partner. So you can change partners at any point in the season and still be in the running for year end payouts. Starting this year, the championship event will be worth doubles points, so a good performance could really effect the standings.

MDS Committee Chairman
The Hastings event has been rescheduled for July 21st, and the Championship event at Shakopee on September 29th, has been added to the MDS Schedule.
I recently moved to the area and am very interested in the MDS. I do not know any disc golfers in the area, are there usually singles looking for a partner at the MDS events?
No, usually there aren't singles looking for partners, bring your own partner. I would recommend talking to players at local leagues and tournaments. Perhaps try the Twin Cities disc golf group on Facebook. What division are you looking to play?
Most likely I would play advanced or open. I will try the FB page. Are there any random draw doubles around the TC area?
Give me a call at (612)990-6638. I might have someone who is also looking for a partner.
Please note that I have had to make a few adjustments to the MDS calendar including Hastings on 6/30 and Hyland on 07/21.
Good eye Carl, that should read September 29th for the Championships. I will make that edit. Thanks

I'm possibly looking at this wrong but are the Doubles Champs on a Thursday?
Yeah just bring your own discs. Most all discs are pdga approved. We try to adhere to their standards.
