Jan 22, 2011 - Bryan / College Station area event
2nd Annual After New Year's New Year's Bash
Info as of December
Jameson Pugh and I would like to extend an invitation to each of you and your friends for a day of fun for the whole family on January 22, 2011, as Alcorn Creek DGC
hosts the 2nd Annual After New Year's New Year's Bash. As most of you know, this will be a 100% Cash Payout, Non-PDGA event with an added twist ($100.00 added and pro rated between the 3 men's divisions and the 2 women's divisions). There will be 2 rounds of 18 hole Championship style disc golf. There are 3 Amateur Par 4 rated holes and 1 Amateur Par 5 rated hole (or so Jameson says.
We try to schedule this tournament when nothing else is going on so we can have a good turnout. Last year we had 25 players. Even though that does not sound like much, it was a lot of fun and still pretty good for a 1st time made up tournament.
As last year we will be holding a raffle fund raiser. Last year we raised $125.00 for the late Rob Chandler's childrens' college fund. Rob lost his battle with Bi Polar Disease April 2008. This year we have two groups to raise money for. We will raise money for FACETS, a family support group for those with Autistic Children (we will help provide them with a meal at one of their monthly meetings) and for Frank Young who had a freak accident on a horse and broke his foot which has kept him out of work for over 3 months. He will not be able to collect disability until February and he is still out of work where he is a helicopter pilot (even if the donations provide Frank with as much as a free meal for him and his wife, that is something).
As like last year we will be doing some massive clearing on some of the holes. Still lots of vines that need to be cleared out of flight paths. If you can help on designated work days, it would be greatly appreciated.
As for sponsorships, to have a company's, or individual's, name one of 18 holes will be $30.00. We will have 5 corporate sponsorships availible from the 18. These will be $50.00 and those businesses orf individuals will recieve a thank you card and a picture of all patrons and volunteers. Corporate sponsors will also have their names read off at the beginning of the player meeting and will have their business cards at the clubhouse if they wish to provide some.
One of the major issues with producing this type of tournament is having enough baskets. We will need to have 21 this year. I think we can pull it off. We need the three extras for the 3 hole course for all juniors and ladies who have never played in a tournament before. Obviously I hope this will bring out more juniors and ladies this year.
I know this is a lot of info, but this is the first time I have been able to provide you all with this information.
My main goal this year is to try to mingle the college students that love to play casual disc golf around B/CS with the regular players from the B/CS area, the Houston area and some from other areas as well like Austin and maybe Waco and other areas around Texas.
Lots of fun with plenty of games (Ace pot, CTP, Longest Drive, Putting contest, Ring of Fire and the Raffle.)
Also, if you have any vintage or new discs or something practical you would like to donate to the raffle and Ring of Fire, please let me know.
I have been doing some thinking and I just feel that since the economy has been in the pits lately, I might not ask for any sponsorships this year. Besides it becomes a huge hassle when it comes to holding up my end of the bargain sometimes. Sooooo, this is my plan. If you have say a disc or something that you would like to offer for the ring of fire and the raffle, that would be excellent.
Also, instead of having any par 4s, we will shorten those holes a little bit and make them par 3s. One hole will stay the same because I plan to keep this hole as it is as long as possible. Hole 16 will measure about 550 to 575 but will be a par 3 this year. I want to take the scorecards after the two rounds and see what kind of average we get. Everything else will be shorter than 500 feet. If you donate something and just have to have some sort of tax right off form, let me know and I can type something up. Coupons and discount cards would be a plus. I will talk to Play it Again Sports to see if they want to be the title sponsor along with David Kindt Cutting Horses and be the vendor out there. I will talk to the new place as well to see what they can do.
As far as entry fees go, Men (Novice, Intermediate, Advanced) will pay $15.00 and Women (Novice, Intermediate) will pay $10.00.
Remember: 100% Cash Payout for the adult divisions with a prorated $100 added to the overall purse ($70 for 3 men's divisions and $30 for 2 women's divisions).
My plan is to charge $5 for juniors and beginers and let them play a three hole course near the house forwards and backwards. their entry fee will get them 6 tickets for the raffle and they can all play the other competitions as well. If we can round up a few DX or easy throwing discs for this division for each kid and beginner to get a free disc, that would be awsome as well.
One other thing....if you have a portable basket or baskets, please bring them if you can. I only have 4 baskets. If you can, that would be appreciated.
