  • University of Oregon DGC doubles event at cottage grove feb 14th

    First of all, i have to say we are waiting to hear back from city about using cottage grove course, but assuming we can...

    University of Oregon Disc Golf Club will be hosting a bring-your-own-partner doubles event on valentines day! Sunday Feb 14th!

    We are having a special bring your own partner doubles tournament with 2 divisions. The “Romance” division is for all pairs NOT consisting of 2 males, so it is designed for the men to bring their wives/a female partner out for a fun filled day of disc golf. The “Bromance” division is for teams consisting of 2 male players.
    We are planning on playing two rounds of 18 holes. First round is best-shot doubles while the second round is alternate-shot doubles.
    Cost (per team): $20 “Romance”/$25 “Bromance”

    There will be prizes for both divisions! All tournament proceeds will go to the University of Oregon Disc Golf Club and will be used towards travel expenses during the 2009-2010 season. The team took 8th place at the National Collegiate Disc Golf Championships last year and we hope to get back there this year and improve, but we cannot do it without your support. So come play in the campus tournament, and help support a good cause!

              Event Title and Am/Pro "Romance" Division split??

              My wife and I are very entertained at the prospect of this event, being that I have personally discussed throwing a similar event in the past couple of years, referring to the idea as, "CUPID"S OPEN" and with only male/female teams. The U of O DG Club event idea with bromance and romance divisions is WAY COOLER, 'cept the posted name "University of Oregon DGC doubles event at cottage grove feb 14th" I dug around online, and as far as I can tell, the event name, "CUPID'S OPEN" is unused in the disc golf world. I would be honored and humbled if the U of O DG Club wanted to use the name, "CUPID'S OPEN" this year and henceforth . . .

              Sunday, February 14th, 1st Annual Cupid's Open, Cottage Grove DGC, another sweet event ran by and supporting the University of Oregon Disc Golf Club . . .

              Just a thought . . .

              Thought/Question #2: My wife is a little nervous about competing against other male/female teams being that she is not very experienced (probably thrown less than 500 drives in the last year and a half since I talked her into playing) I explained to her that it was for a good cause, reassuring her with the fact that she will get to hang out with me ALL DAY at a disc golf tournament I'm not exactly a PRO either So the question at hand is, "With enough entries, would the U of O DG Cub be willing to split fields within one or both of the aforementioned divisions of "Bromance" and "Romance"

              We will probably be coming either way, but just hoping to calm her nerves a little bit.

              P.S. Need any help and/or contributions for prizes and/or sponsors from the "south of Eugene" area ? ? ? Let me know . . .

                Derek, my wife is far from a pro also and will be coming as my partner. Tell your wife, nothing to worry about.

                      everything is staying as planned.
                      It is not likely that this will be an annual event, so we dont want to go with the 1st annual cupids open title.

                      As for the divisions, most of us college kids are bringing girls who have never played before or who have never played a tournament/never played a round and kept score..ect so we are expecting most women to be complete beginners
                      We hope the Alternate shot round will even the results out a bit because teams will have to rely on both partners and not just one.

                      Any more questions, let me know.
                      Thanks

                        My wife and I are way excited; this will be the most female disc golfers in one place that she has ever seen!

                        I'm curious what "bromance" teams are brewing ? ? ? Just wondering . . .

                        Don't want to make it annual, eh? Bummer, this sounds like a fun event that could be ran every year to raise funds for the U of O Disc Golf Club . . . and I get to play dg on Valentine's Day with my wife's permission

                        Let us at DiscGolfOregon know if there is anything we can do or bring to help out, bro. Have you retained any sponsors for prizes and such?? Lemme know; I'm pretty good at pulling in last minute sponsors.

                        Thanks for throwing this event; I'm getting excited

                            of course we could always use more sponsors, i walked around downtown eugene for a few hours a few days have gotten enough to payout 4 or 5 groups but mostly i am waiting to hear back from businesses that i sent or dropped off official sponsorship request letters.
                            who knows who will throw them away and who will actually contact me willing to help
