    Why not move the date, Terry? Like... to Thanksgiving when it might be a more applicable name?
    ďI believe I can hit 18 greens, hit every fairway, you know ó Vision 54, which means you birdie every hole, thatís in the back of my mind. I want to putt better, chip better. That day when I hit 18 greens and one putt, Iíll know Iím a complete golfer. Will that ever happen? Iím not sure, but itís possible. The 54 vision is always in the back of my mind.Ē

      Turkeyrama, It's a McMinnville festival thing thats at the same weekend every year. I personally wouldn't mind doing it a weekend before or after so I could play in both events. Turkeyrama is bad luck for me anyway. you get the idea.

        thanksgiving

        why not be more helpful with your thinking instead of what you might think is funny, thanksgiving that's funny, so why do you call it the" Rose City "open if you play half the golf outside the "Rose City",, sounds like you need to work on why that tournament name is not more applicable

          i to would like to move the date,the city would like to have it on saturday the sameday the bbq and baseball and conserts go on but don't understand the people in the way thing and we can't use the field on saturday,i changed the date two years ago to accomadate that and most of the sponsers did not approve because the whole deal is to be apart of Turkeyrama,so we consider the tournament as closing down Turkeyrama,the last event of the weekend,sometimes baseball extends into sunday as well ,and the whole purpose of the tounament is to get new people to play ,it's an awareness tournament to the community that disc golf exists in their city,you could come out and watch or play along for free and learn what disc golf is about,so no the date can't really be changed and it may be changed to saturday to accomadate sponsers and have it seen by more people using the park on saturday for the other events,
          and as for another pdga tournament the club will bring back its late October tournament we used to do many years back called the Silver Squirrel Disc Golf Challange, I'll set up a course that will be very difficult to par,Jerry Miller and Tom Embre are the only ones to shoot par for a round,Jerry Miller shoot par both rounds one year (score card is still pinned up in my closet), so come October if you come play expect to say of few harsh words under your breath if not outloud,things used in the past,knee bunkers,island greens,mandos,600ft. double mando par 4's,get the idea,long day of bogey golf

                pdga c tier recomends 50.00 and not to exceed 100.00 well within the boundries,and if I were a pro I think higher entry fee and lower number of people would be a good chance to cash in,
                and if Mic and Scotty R. donate or get paid to make any trophies the price of admission would be more than justice ,are tuesday series are already recieving some and i've been to many tournaments over the years and havn't seen anything as ssssswwwwweeeeeeeeeetttttt as these babies are going to be,

                  Well, Terry... I was actually being serious as I knew nothing of Turkeyrama. I'm usually pretty clear when I am joking.

                  As for why it is called the Rose City Open, it is because it was originally just at Pier Park- in the Rose City. I have nothing to do with the tournament now, though, so asking me to work on the tournament name is a little silly.

                  It's all good, Terry. I am sure that you might get like 20-25 people out for your tourney considering the fact that there is a larger tournament just up the road. On a different weekend, you would probably get double.

                  But yeah... take that as a joke if you wish.

                      You do realize that there have been events in the past called the Turkey Toss and that they happened on Thanksgiving, right? Brill ran them, I believe. THAT is why I suggested Thanksgiving, Terry. Not to be a jerk and I wasn't trying to make a joke.

                      Clearly you would not want to compete with the RCO as I am sure you know it will hurt your numbers. If you can do nothing about it and don't want to find new sponsors, I suppose you are stuck. Too bad, too... I want to play in a tourney at Wortman.

                        I think the Turkey Toss will do just fine. The RCO will sell out in 20 minutes and everyone who didn't make it in will go toss turkeys.

                          That's a good point, Scott.
