Disc golf took over the community of Wayne on the long weekend.
 
The Lost Egg Tournament ran for the 18th year in the hills overlooking the Last Chance Saloon on both Saturday and Sunday.
 
"It's a different terrain, for sure," remarked disc golfer Timon Salzgeber, who travelled here from Canmore for the event. "I'm from the Rocky Mountains, so big hills is nothing new, but there's a couple of guys from Saskatchewan who haven't hiked a hill in their lives, so they're pretty green here."
 
The steep terrain was exacerbated by the weather, which was overcast and rainy for part of Saturday.
 
"Yesterday (Aug. 4) we had a lot of rain, so it's wet and you're slipping everywhere and you've got to be really cautious," he recalled. "Previous years it's been really hot and then you're battling the heat, plus all the hiking, so it definitely is a factor."
 
"It's especially slippery; there's been a lot of people with dirty jackets from spills yesterday," Salzberger continued. I'm in the Amateur Advanced (category) and so far, it hasn't gone very well for me; I can't shoot in the right direction, unfortunately."

The tournament was split into various flights, taking in each disc golfer's skill level, experience and age. Competitors made two circuits of the course each day on Saturday and Sunday, the final day of competition. They wrap up wtih a doubles event on Monday.  A complete list of competitor scores for the tournament can be found here.
