  • The Lahar Benefit Open C-Tier Charity Event @ Riverside 11/12/11

    The Lahar Benefit Open

    I am very excited to announce that a one-day C-tier event falling under the PDGA’s charity endowment program will be coming to the Riverside Disc Golf course in Sumner, Washington. It is my goal to raise $5,000 for the YMCA’s Friends and Servants Program. For the last year and a half, the Friends and Servants Program has been partnering with the Pierce County Disc Golfers Players Association to help with course maintenance. Friends and Servants is a non-profit organization that works with at-risk youth to help them disconnect from the court system by providing them with an outlet to work off their court ordered community service hours under guidance of a positive adult mentor.
    Friends and Servants has graciously donated countless staff and volunteer hours, as well the equipment and operating cost to the course and the disc golf community. I feel that “The Lahar Benefit Open” provides an opportunity for the disc golf community to say thank you as well as give back to their community. With that in mind, if you have any leads or ideas of potential sponsors for the event, please contact me.
    To help reach the goal of $5,000, I am trying to keep tournament costs to a minimum. I am also going to experiment with the payout structure. It is my intent NOT to pay out in cash or scrip to division leaders, but in donated prizes of equal or greater market value. Please stay tuned as I will be keeping both this thread as well as the Pierce County Disc Golf Players Association updated with newly acquired prize swag.

    On-line registration for the event will available through NW Sign Ups. Please use the following link to sign up:

    Good news. I'll add it the calendar at home. I should be able to make it.

    Reminder to all non-PDGA members, the $10 non-member fee is waived or charged by the TD and donated to the event charity.

      I forgot to mention that in the announcement. The fee will be waived and not charged by the TD. I would like to keep entry fees low and attract players to come out and support the community. Looking forward to seeing everyone out at Riverside in a couple of weeks.

              I would like to add more sponsors to the growing list.

              Paul Wright
              Matt Geck
              Todd Bates
              Kyle Crabtree
              Chris Gilberts
              Chainbangerz
              Parked Discgolf
              The Ram Restaurant and Brewery of Puyallup

              An interesting side note: I am considering doing a silent auction on site for 4 discs. Blue 175g w/ Rainbow Proto Stamp Destroyer, Dayglo 175g w/ Black Proto Stamp Boss, and 2 Champion USDGC Rocs in the Bag ( Haven't decided on what years or stamp I am willing to part with) This is a new idea... and I am curious as to how it will play out. I am very open to any and all feedback.

                Jeremy,

                I'm donating a stack of plastic with a value of about $100 to use towards the Lahar Benefit Open. Use it for the silent auction or prizes.

                Unfortunely, I won't be able to attend this event due to a prior family commitment that I forgot about.

                I handed over the plastic to Chris Gilberts and he will get them to you at the event.

                Thanks again for running a benefit Event. The disc golf community should and needs to do more events like this to give back to the non-disc golf related causes. We already know that a relatively small group of people do the course maintenance and such. By running an event like this, we can attract the players that will donate money thru the entry fees and show business sponsors that we care more about the whole community.
