My name is Gene Beaumont; and I am the Sales/Marketing Director for the 2011 PDGA Amateur and Junior Disc Golf World Championships. Our club, the Greater Rochester Disc Golf Club (GRDGC) will be hosting this event in the summer of 2011 on seven of our courses around the Rochester area.
The GRDGC is a not-for-profit organization, is one of the oldest established clubs in the country dating back to the summer of 1970. This is not the first time the GRDGC has hosted the disc golf world championships. The 1984 and 1999 Professional Disc Golf World Championships were both hosted by us here in Rochester. Hosting the tournament next year will once again move the spotlight of the disc golf community back onto the Rochester area.
There are many expenses connected with running this tournament our sole source of funding is limited to GRDGC fund-raising events and business sponsorship. The sponsorships will help us run a better tournament and allow us to maximize funds for course upkeep and preparations.
Within the sponsorship package you will see a wide variety of options to allow your company to be a part of this great event. Each offers different opportunities to give your company exposure at the local, national and international level.
We expect over 600 players; men and women aged 6 to 80, from across the country and around the world. Many of the participants, their supporters and spectators in the 2011 PDGA Amateur Disc Golf World Championships will come from the upstate New York area.
We do hope this is something you will consider. The GRDGC will work with you if you have other ideas or suggestions. Let’s work together and help put on the best world championships that this disc golf community has ever seen!
Thank you for your consideration.
