PrairieLand Putting Championship in Feb.

Postby Jwt4412 » Sun Oct 29, 2006 9:03 pm

I am looking for some help getting the word out on the Springfield Disc Golf Clubs Feb. Tourney and indoor Putting Tournament. Could you guys help us reachout and spread the word?

Here is what is planned...

A White Level GDSTour event with two rounds in Lincoln Park [18 hole course that has been ranked as one of the top 6 courses in Illinois] with a 3 disc players pack and prizes; followed by food and an Indoor Bracketed Putting Tournament at the State Fairgrounds.

Games of cut-throat will also be going on while the bracket events are occurring.

Projected costs are $35.00

What does that include?

3 disc players pack
$10.00 Bracket Voucher
3-5 $1.00 Cut-Throat Tickets.
Food.

The Prize for the Winner of the Bracket Event is 40% of the pot. Cash prizes will continue down thru the ranks - how far down depends on how many people enter.

The Bracketed Event will work like this:

One on One

Both players flip their discs - the first player with "heads" shoots first.

He can putt from anywhere... if he makes it and his opponent misses. He has to make it again. If he does, his opponent is eliminated and he moves on in the brackets.

Play continues until there is only one person.

Cut-Throat will be played by groups of ten w/ one dollar/ticket entry - the winner of the game gets a custom stamp wizard. So basically the winner gets a custom stamped wizard for $10.00 for his $1.00 ticket.

Cut-throat games will continue as long as there is interest...

We have a building large enough that we may have a longest putt competion as well... We mostly likely will have a longest putt competition but working on how the prizes would work... would love to have a sponsor for this one...

This will be scheduled for sometime in February pending a date we can firm up for the Fairgrounds Building.

If we shot the moon and 100 people showed up - the winner would get $400.00 for winning the tourney. Obviously if more players showed up - the prize is bigger, if fewer show up the prize is smaller.

You can give people my email address of jwt4412@yahoo.com if they are interested in attending or if they could give us an idea of how many people from their area would be attending... Additional Sponsorships are always welcomed.

I am thinking Chicagoland, Quad Cities, Peoria, St. Louis, hell - Kansas City, Champaigne, Decatur - wherever...

We want to crown the PrairieLand Putting Champion right here in SpringPatch.

This event will be in Springfield, IL right on the MotherRoad Route 66.

All are welcome.

Are you interested?

UPDATED:

The Springfield Disc Golf Club is having an event on February 3, 2007.

It will be the Inaugural Prairieland Putting Put-Down.

It will be two rounds in Lincoln Park followed by an indoor Putting
Tournament at the State Fairgrounds.

At Lincoln Park:

We will begin with a Doubles Tourney using the "Ice Bowl" format - we will be collecting canned goods for local charity.

We will follow that with a quick round of 200' feet and in for a warm up for the Putting Tourney...

We will then move to the State Fairgrounds:

Food
Bracket Tourney w/ 40% payout to First Place
Cut Throat
"Skee-Ball"
Longest Putt

What is "Skee-Ball"? Skee-Ball with be three temp baskets set up 20' [10 pts] - 40' [20 pts] - 60' [50 pts] away with 10 putters - Highest Recorded Score wins - tie will be decided by a putt-off...

We will have a room available for sponsors to show and hawk their wares…

The Total Cost of the Package is $35.00 and Five Canned Goods per Participant

What’s in the Player’s Pack?

We will be using the GDSTour White Package - 3 disc player’s pack
and the following...

Entry fee for one in an “Ice Bowl” Doubles Tourney – for trophies and prizes
Entry fee for one in a 200’-and-In Ace Run Circuit –
Your $1.00 entry in the Event Ace Pot is included in the Package*
A Ten Dollar Bracket Ticket – for your shot at the 40% Cash Pot Prize
3 Cut-throat Tickets. – You vs. Nine Others for Custom Stamp Wizards
Food.

We want to have a bracketed tournament with winner getting 40% of the Ten
Dollar Fee - additional cash prizes will go down farther in the standings.

I’ll do some quick math for you – If 100 participants show up, the winner gets $400.00. How far the cash prizes go down the bracket depends on how many folks show up… More Players, more payouts…

It will be one on one:

Each "putter" flips his disc - first one who is "heads" gets to pick the
first place to put from. If he makes it and his opponent misses, he has
got to make it again. If he does his opponent is eliminated and he moves
on to the next round. It alternates back and forth until there is a
winner.

While the Bracket is running - we will be having games of cut-throat.
$1.00 Cut-Throat ticket to enter against 9 other "putters". The winner of
the cut-throat game gets the Ten Cut-throat tickets/dollars and can trade
them in for a Custom Stamped Wizard.

Three tickets will be part of the package but more can be bought
if the player wants to play more.

We will also be playing Skee-Ball. What is "Skee-Ball"? There will be three temp baskets set up 20' [10 pts] - 40' [20 pts] - 60' [50 pts] away with 10 putters - Highest Recorded Score wins the prize - tie will be decided by a putt-off...

We will also have longest putt contest for prizes, as well.

First do you think there would be any interest from guys in your neck of
the woods on coming on down? We are looking for anchor sponsors from the various surrounding areas.

Send us your best putters…

We want to crown a PrairieLand Putting Champion.

We are trying to find out if there is any interest from the Quad Cities,
ChicagoLand, Champaign, Decatur, Peoria, and St. Louis Area.

Would you guys be interested, if so – we are looking for a headcount – just email me at jwt4412@yahoo.com?

Any questions? Just email me. So let’s review; for $35.00 you get fed, you get three discs, you get an Ice Bowl for trophies, you get an Ace Run, you get pick up cut throat games, and you get a chance at a 40% Pot Cash Prize and you might get your mug on DiscGolfTV.com – but most of all you GET Bragging Rights!

*if you want in on our club progressive Ace Pot, you got to be a member [$15.00] – Forms will be available at the event. Bag Tags are also available and the Bag Tag event concludes at our Capital City Challenge event later in the year.

Sponsorships are available - we are especially looking for prizes for the "Skee-Ball" and the Longest Putt. Two of the manufacturers are already on board and DiscGolfTV.com has expressed interest on attending and doing a segment for the their website…

I just wanted to thank everybody for their initial interest...

And for those who were asking...

No we are not kidding... they way the math works on the Bracket - If 100 people show up the winner gets $400.00 - You would be playing for 40% of the 10.00 Bracket Ticket for first place - there will be additional cash prizes.

Just wanted to thank the Guys from the neighboring Peoria Disc Golf Club for the Sponsorship and the Six Putters Donated as Prizes...

All you fellas gonna come to Springpatch and show us how it is done?

http://www.discgolfclub.org

Ever seen a Four Hundred Dollar Bill? Me neither... but if you beat 99 other putters, I'll hand you four crisp One Hundred Dollar Bills or a bunch of crumpled up ones -- they will spend just the same... :wink:

I'm not a member of the Peoria frisbee club, but they are great. They do a fantastic job at tournaments as well as course maintenance. I'm sure they'll show.

I'm going to come down and show you what selling me all those wizards has done for my short game. :wink:

Make plans to attend this tourney. It will be worth the trip. Plus when you stay at the host hotel you have a chance to stay free that night.
