I will take this as a lesson learned (early fortunately) and in the future will just bring in funds to be DIRECTLY applied to the charity in focus.
Still, thanks for a very fun fundraiser to a very good cause!
Dana, this is the first year we have tried this incentive plan. This plan was promoted by Ice Bowl Central as a way to raise more dollars for our local charity, which it did. Had more disc golfers participated in this incentive plan then many more people in our community would know about disc golf and the good that it does for our community. This method was how Saint Cloud, Minnesota was able to raise over $14,000.
