You can use whatever disc you like Dan will be selling led's and you get one for playing (at least you did last year.)

The ones Dan gives out are nice because you can turn then on and off so they last longer and are LED's so they are brighter than glow sticks but either one will work.

Have a few things to note about the Ace Race and Day Glow events. First off, it is really important that you pre-register for the Ace Race, even moreso than in years before. Discraft has notified us that they have had an extremely high demand for the Ace Race packs this year and can only produce so many discs per day. They are closing in on a 3 week notification for the number of packs to order. I always order a few more, but I can't read minds so need you to sign up.

For the Day Glow event we have the stamp for this year, once again designed by Alicia Eades. PictureWe'll also be giving out 2 lights with your entry fee this year. For the Day Glow, there's a Late Fee added for entries received after 10/20/12. You can Pre-register for either or both events at ACE RACE DAY GLOW

Yes, you can purchase any of the Day Glow discs from the package - super stamp this year!(always is) - $15 each: CFR Glow Champion Boss, Firebird or Monarch; CFR Champion Vulcan.  Each comes with a CFR certificate to send in to be eligible for Innova's monthly prize drawing. For $10 more you get a cookout, 2 LED lights, mini and golf - WHEW!

You can also purchase an Ace Race pack and not play - 2 discs, water bottle, mini, UV shades and a sticker. What a deal!!

If anyone wants a Day Glow disc or Ace Race package, contact me. 859.371.3668 or discndat@fuse.net

Just signed up. I have never played a glow event before. I understand there will be some LED's given out. Is there some special tape I need to bring?

I saw these two posts from Dan and thought they said different things. So I am confused if I can wait until the day of the event like the second post says or if I have to pre register like the first post says.
Sorry for the confusion.
This would have been easier if you had just said yes or no.

Check Dan's comments about how many come with the entry fee. 
There are two type of LEDs.  Both work really well.
The old type are about 1 inch long and look like a really small skinny flashlight.  Common practice is to use electrical tape (two pieces) instead of the tape that comes in the package.
The newer ones are wider and flat.  Packing tape is the common method here.  Put the tape over the whole unit  when attaching to the disc.

dettmerb - rangel answered your question well. You will be getting two of the flat LED lights with your entry. Some people use electrical tape for those also.  We will have extra lights for sale that day too if you want more.

Jay Dub - you can sign up the day of the event.  I didn't word the Pre-Register info well in that one message - it was meant as an "encouragement" to pre-register so I have some kind of an idea of how many Ace Race packs to order. I can't just order a bunch and then get stuck with them at the end. But I also want to have enough for all those that do sign up, even the day of the event. I do my best to order extras, but one never knows how many walk-ups you will have that day. As in years past, if we have more signups than packs, we'll ask some of you to relinquish one of your discs so the latecomers can have a disc to use that day and then I'll order more packs for the latecomers to pick up later when they come in. This has worked well in the past. Discraft is just getting slammed this year with orders for Ace Race packs so I wanted to make sure we could get enough.

Sorry for the rambling but hope that helps a little. It always works out and we'll have a great time. So come on out and get int he race - the ACE RACE! Then stick around for the Day Glow, mini golf and cookout.
