Top 6 hints for FAST & WISE registration.
At registration, you will be asked some questions in addition to your personal details. If you have your answers ready before the registration, you will save a ton of time. These are basic information but some of them will actually take a lot of time or get you into trouble if you do not think them thoroughly.
Here are our top 6 hints on FAST and WISE registration.
Not counted as a tip, but let us start with the most important one. Check when YOUR registration starts from Registration info -> click.
1. Disc Golf Scene – be ready
Update your account (or create new account if don’t have one) to Disc Golf Scene. Registration is done with the Disc Golf Scene registration system.
Account is not necessary, but it is recommended.

2. PayPal – be ready
Create a PayPal account and check your payment method. PayPal account is NOT needed in registration but it is a lot faster to make payments with an account than without.
Remember also to check your payment method; some of the Finnish banks have internet payments shut off as default on all cards. If you want to be sure, transfer the needed amount of money to your PayPal account in advance.

3. Your division – be wise and register to correct division
Be sure to choose correct division while registering, in the worst case, you might not be able to play in the event at all. If your rating rises too high, it might not be possible to change it to another (if the other pool is full, you cannot change your division!). Check your rating now and think what it would be in June. You better play safe than sorry and register yourself to a higher division if you are on the edge.
It is players OWN responsibility to register and play in the correct division, make a note on that. Staff is not responsible for this and if you cannot play or get disqualified, it’s all on you.
Check all the division standards from this voucher from PDGA -> https://www.pdga.com/files/2018_divisions_ratings_point_factors.pdf
Still not sure? Find a local disc golf club and ask for their help on determining what division you should play in.
4. Tee-off Song – prepare
The most time-consuming task is to choose a tee-off song. It can take many hours so it is wise to do it in advance and not while filling up the registration form.
While choosing the song, remember that only the first 30s is played (as you have 30s to tee-off) and that is what makes it so difficult. Your personal favorite song might not have the best intro on it so you better listen to it carefully before typing it down.
We are using Spotify streaming service to play the songs, so be wise and select a song from their library. If your chosen song is not available in Spotify, we will play a random (or not so random) stupid song instead. You can use Spotify’s free version to browse the service and select the song.
To help us out, put down a Spotify link WITH the song name, thank you.

5. Shirt size
Shirt size? Really? What do you mean by size? Is this US size or maybe China size? Is this a hint of players pack item?
There is a dropdown list from sizes S to 3XL. Select the size you mostly use. If you can’t find your size on that scale, hopefully, we find you something else.
Do not overthink this question too much.
6. Donation and other extras – have the money ready!
At Tyyni 2019 we will bring some extra features to the registration.
Add up all the things you’d wish to have beforehand and put enough money to your PayPal account (or if you don’t use, have the money ready in your credit/debit card).
Even that Tyyni has great and generous sponsors, we still want the event to better and bigger. If you have extra money on you, don’t be ashamed to make a small or large donation towards the event. We can do a lot with it. And hey, you can put your name on history books (caddie book), what is better than that?
If you wish to sponsor the event as an individual player, it is easiest during the registration. You have 3 options to add to your registration, with different perks.
+10€ Pizza for volunteers. You support the event and are an awesome person
+50€ Name on the Caddie Book. Yes, that’s right, you get your name on the Caddie Book.
+100€ Hole Sponsor. With this donation, you will get one hole in one of the courses. This includes a sign that we will make with your name on it and its placed next to the tee. After the event, you will get the sign for yourself as memory.
Tyyni Ace Pool
Think you can ace it? Purchase yourself an entry to Tyyni Ace Pool! 5 euros will get you into Tyyni Ace Pool. In any of the rounds at the Tyyni main event, you shall Ace, you will receive a 100 euros cash price. If you are not in the ace pool and make a hole-in-one, congrats, its still a good shot, but no prize given.
You can win one Ace Pool 100 euros. In the case of multiple aces, you should fill a lottery ticket.
Personally Customized Collectors Items
Even that we’ve had amazing Players Pack thru the years, we want to offer more. During registration, you are able to purchase a special run disc with your OWN NAME customized on it. This design is only for pre-orders during registration and cannot be purchased from anywhere else.
