Call 301-948-8900 and request to book in the Chesapeake Open room block (make sure you select the correct dates!).

Field Rules
1. No Alcohol. Field rules state that no alcohol is allowed on the property.
2. No Dogs. Not even if they're leashed/staked and you promise to pick up after them.
3. Don't mess with the horses. They cost a lot more than you think and the field owners don't take kindly to us messing with their livelihood.

Travel Updates
1. All roads to Poolesville have at least one speed camera. Tickets are not cheap, so please obey the posted speed limits!  Interactive map is located here.
2. There will be a number of bicyclists on the roads. Please be respectful of them and obey all traffic laws regarding pedestrians and cyclists.
3. The Harris Teeter on Route 28 is your closest grocery store (Selby's in Poolesville is now closed), so stock up on your way in. There are delis, a Subway, McDonalds and other food options in town, but we'll also have a food vendor selling food on site, so you probably won't have a need to leave for food.

Sponsorship Props
1. Breakmark will be selling some awesome gear at the tournament. Bring some money to purchase shorts, jerseys, hats, wrist bands, and other awesome tournament and Breakmark branded goods to commemorate your trip to Poolesville!
2. Wright Life has hooked us up with some awesome trophies this year. Consider checking them out for your disc golf and other disc sport gear needs!
3. UltiPhotos is the official photographer of the Chesapeake Open & Invite. They'll have several photographers capturing the action and will be posting preview and full galleries during and after the event. Check their site to see if they caught that nasty layout D or sick bid during your game against that one team. www.ultiphotos.com
