We are trying something new... Springfield, in the past has been a "host" town for big events that draws players from St. Louis, Chicago, Peoria, Bloomington and the Quad Cities because we are about 2 to 4 hours from all of them. With this indoor/outdoor event we thought we would expand the area of potential players and hooked up with a Hotel Chain to get a reduced rate of $50.00. The hotel, Microtel, will also being comping one room for both the Saturday and Friday night of the registered guests.
Heck, we've got sponsors of the event from Missouri and Iowa - it is a regional thing.
If 100 people show up and play in the Putting Bracket - first place will be a $400.00 payout - we know it wouldbe a long drive for some, so we are trying to get as much into the days events as possible. Doubles Tourney, Ace Run and Indoor Putting Events...
Prizes include Innova Traveler basket, Mach Lite Baskets, 50 Prize Wizards, 3 disc Players pack , ridiculous amount of CTPs, Ace Bounties, $300.00 worth of GDSTour Prizes for the Doubles Tourney and more.
DiscGolfTV is covering and sponsoring the event. We already have registered players from as far away as Central Wisconsin, Central Indiana and Southern Iowa.
Lincoln Park has been vote a top 5 Illinois course and we are proud of it... What else you gonna do in the beginning of Feb? Watch 12 hours of Superbowl Pre-Game?
We know it is a haul, but Four Hard-Core Disc Golfers from anywhere in Missouri, Iowa, Indianna or within Illionois, about $90.00 each and a Digital Camera for footage for DiscGolfTV could have a pretty good time.
$35.00 Players Back
$15.00 extras - optional
$20.00 in gas
$20.00 share of the hotel room
5 hours in a car - are you kidding? That's too far for a $400.00 first place pay-out in an event that Ams can win Cash and your hotel could be free?
Come on... at least talk about it with your league buddies... Roadtrip!!!
