    Calapooia pint glasses for every registered player plus free beer from a keg or two!

    A mixture of the temp layouts from the 2nd Annual Camp Taloali fundraiser and the 2nd annual falling leaves tournaments.

    Let's fundraise money for a biggggger playground! Last year's tournament paid in full for a new playground structure that was installed last July.
    CTP contest after tournament for DGA mini basket, discs, and other prizes.
    Using NWsignups this year and should be up and running by next weekend, thanks to Mike!
    We are working in April to put in teepads and a couple new alt pin placements that will be used for the first time during the tournament.

          Temp holes on the main grounds will be marked with flags for tee placements and basket placements by April 22nd, but shooting for end of the first week of April so everyone has a fair chance to walk or play the layout.

            A full metal mini basket from DGA will be up for grabs in the traditional "30 minute CTP" contest at the end of the tournament, unlimited throws $1 each for 30 minutes, winner at end of 30 minutes gets the basket. There will be 3 baskets out there for the CTP contest, each having it's own prize.

            Also I am adding a DGA Machlite portable basket to either the AM payout prize or the CTP 30 minute contest. Sign up! Spread the word, let's fill this baby!

            Discs have been ordered for the player's pack.
            Sparkle Hurricanes - have 7 Hurricanes in my bag
            Sparkle Aftershocks - the bread and butter of my midrange game
            NEW Pro Undertow - Curious how this works, been told this is between a sidewinder and a leopard.
            Pro Squall - have 3 of these in my bag

                What percentage of the entry fee goes towards the payout?

                  Entry fee - $4 (pdga mandatory towards fundraiser) - 25% (pdga mandatory towards fundraiser) - player package items value - trophies = what's left for payout.

                  It's a fundraiser, you will get your money's worth and then some...

                    I love the fundraising concept but last year I came second in adv masters and won nothing which left a pretty bad taste in my mouth so I will not be returning this year.

                          $35 - $4 = $31 - 25% = $23 - player pack disc = $8 - Trophies ($300) = $0 left for payout.
                          What you did win was a $20 (wholesale) wooden disc trophy with beautiful engraving and helped build the first new playground structure at the camp in over 20 years.... which has been highly popular... Was that not enough? Please email me at snap7times@gmail.com on how I could find a way to reduce the money fundraised and create a payout... I want to hear how I could improve... thanks

                            That's some of the numbers. How many trophies were given, how many people entered etc. are all questions that should be answered when it comes to full disclosure of distribution of prizes.
                            Nathan, I am not looking for a public fight and am not even expecting you to answer these questions here but to answer your question on how you could improve I would suggest letting people know that it is a trophy only tournament. That way people could have an educated choice as to the merits of entering the tournament. This year instead of entering I will donate $100 to a charity close to my heart ($35 entry + a tank and a half of gas that I won't be using) and spend that particular weekend at home.
                            I do very much commend you on all your charity work and am not trying to begrudge it as it is very honorable, I just feel that as I mentioned, I would rather have known it was a trophy only tournament before I entered it.

                              Here are some more numbers in my attempt to be as clear as I can be.
                              18 trophies were given out, 3 in each division for 6 divisions, looked at the PDGA report, paid $360 to Gary Holte for the trophies. 51 people played. Revenue for the tournament was $2,928 and expenses was $3,099 for a loss of $171 from my pocket.
                              I did my best to explain that it was a fundraiser for a new playground and PDGA Charity Sanctioned, which clearly state the required PDGA player fees + 25% minimum taken out for the fundraiser itself. So really it was a super players pack + trophies. I'm guessing the word in the name of the tournament "fundraiser for Deaf youth" is not enough, but I will try harder. Thanks for the feedback.
