My wife and I are in the process of adopting another girl from Ethiopia. I know Haiti is in the news right now, and 380,000 orphans in Haiti sounds like a lot, and you're problably wondering why we don't adopt from there. Well, Ethiopia has over 5,000,000 orphans. Anyway the last one we adopted cost $27,000. We researched and found some adoption agencies that the total cost will be closer to $20,000. I've got about half of that. I suppose I could forget about adopting, and use the money to put in a 18 hole disc golf course on my land, and charge people to come play...LOL NAH! I live too far out in the middle of no where, with the deer and turkeys.
Anyway, my wife and I are thinking of different fund raisers. Would any of you be interested in coming to Kirksville, Missouri and playing in a tournament to raise money for an adoption? I'm thinking an entrance fee of $10.00 / person. I have no idea what the normal fee is. Maybe $20.00 would be better, then a percentage of the entrance fee would be divided up between the top three players. Kirksville only has a 9 hole course, so you would have to play it twice.
I might be able to switch the tournament to Fulton (has a new 18 hole DG course that is nice) or maybe get permission to play at one of the courses in Columbia. I've no idea what it will cost for advertising or use of the course, if there is a fee since these are public courses.
Any ideas or suggestion, thoughts, comments would be appreciated.
