MAP TO VENUE
This tournament will be run by local club, “Buffalo Discflect.” For any questions, please contact them via email: Contact Buffalo Discflect
A new era is almost here. This will mark the first tournament under the new sport name of discflect. There will be up to 3 different skill divisions, with each one having their own tournament. This means there will be up to 3 different tournament winners, one from each division. By separating the field of teams into their own skill-based divisions, this will allow for a fair competition for players of all skill levels.
In addition to divisions, there will be new scorecards and stats that will be tested at this tournament. More information regarding the scorecards and updated game rules will be posted in the coming weeks.
Buffalo Discflect will set up the goals and provide some house discs (Recreational Kan Jam® 168g) for tournament play. However, under the new sport, teams are allowed to bring up to five of their own discs to use in the tournament. See WHAT TO BRING section.
Not sure what division to join?
Amateur divisions will compete for prizes (courtesy of Kan Jam®) and medals, while the Pro division will compete for payouts and medals. The number of teams and amount of payouts will be decided based on the size of the tournament on game day. There will be a payout of at least 50% of the entry fees in the Pro division.

WHAT TO BRING
Food & Drink
Buffalo Discflect will provide water for players and staff. Since there will not be any food provided on site, all teams are encouraged to come prepared for the day. Pack a cooler of drinks/food for lunch. For those flying in from out of town, there is plenty of shopping in the area to grab some snacks and drinks for tournament day.
Alcohol is allowed, but not within the playing area. There will be a pavilion so teams can keep their alcoholic beverages in there. Buffalo Discflect does not want teams showing up with coolers full of alcohol, but keeping it reasonable and off the playing area is acceptable. Also, there will be no smoking allowed in the playing area or pavilion, only in the parking lot.
Buffalo Discflect will have house discs on hand (Kan Jam® Recreational 168g) for teams to use in the tournament, but it is highly encouraged for teams to bring their own discs to use.
Teams can bring up to a max of 5 discs to use in tournament play. Each disc must weigh between 160g to 175g and be approximately 10.75 inches in diameter.
Since this is a rain or shine event, please come prepared for any weather. Bringing an extra shirt, shoes, or even a towel in case it rains is always a good idea.
There will be approximately 20 or so picnic tables available for teams. While not required, teams can bring their own folding chairs as additional seating options for breaks.
There is no requirement to wear a mask for the tournament. For unvaccinated players, it is recommended to keep a six foot social distance as much as possible.
