Arriving at the Property
As one would expect, these events are going to be extremely popular and will more than likely going to sell out. Please be advised that the Friday and Saturday of the event weekends will prove to be extremely busy. To make your check-in goes as smooth as possible please make sure you leave yourself an extra 15-30 minutes to get through the line during peak times and get parked and ready to play. Remember, each vehicle will need to get their parking pass issued and players will need to sign the waiver and receive their wristbands.
Note: All Players/Spectators are considered "trespassing" if they have not signed the waiver or have a wristband on. Players/Spectators only need to sign the waiver once per event weekend and must keep their wristbands on during the duration of the event weekend. Replacement wristbands are $1.

Waiting List & Refunds
The last tournament using the "original" Gran Canyon design was run in 2006. The property was sold in late 2008 and the final rounds were played on 11/24, the Monday after the Players Cup. The baskets came out immediately afterwards and speculation and rumors swirled about it's future over the next 4 years. Since then the property was cleaned up to prepare it for residential development but when the housing market bubble burst shortly afterward, the nearly 60-acre plot went undeveloped.
It took Sun King Disc Sports nearly 4 years to get the owner of the property to allow the rebirth event that revived the property, so we are very grateful and humble to get this chance again. As discovered last year, the property has changed dramatically with some areas overgrown, some areas cleared and open and other areas either holding water or have sustained water and wind erosion over the past few years. This is why we have again chosen to use a modified 18-hole layout that features as much of the old course as possible, but also uses some areas that haven't been used since some of the early tournaments or not at all.

Throw Down the Mountain 8 (Weekend 3) - Official Update (3/17/2020)
Due to the PDGA suspending all sanctioned events for the next 15 days, and after consulting with our event partners, we are regrettably cancelling Throw Down the Mountain 8 Weekend 3. Despite our belief that we still meet both the CDC recommendations and PDGA mitigation strategies, the suspension of PDGA sanctioning creates insurance liabilities that we cannot ignore and are not willing to expose our players to.
We will process all player refunds in the next 24 hours.
To replace this event, we will attempt to bring back Monster on the Mountain and schedule it in mid to late October 2020; immediately after USDGC and a the Disc Golf Pro Tour Championships.
The Gran Canyon Course will offer "open play" throughout the weekend in lieu of the tournament play.
