Food For Lane County
When: 8AM, Saturday, August 25, 2012
Where: West Alton Baker Park, Eugene
Divisions offered include:
Women: Gold, Silver
Men: Gold, Silver, Bronze, Copper
Youth division will also be offered if needed.
Suggested donation: $15 or whatever you can afford. Food donations will be accepted as well.
Our business model is pretty simple. 100% of the costs of running the tournament are donated by the club and other sponsors, which means 100% of entry fees, donations, and raffle tickets goes to Food for Lane County.
Note that the city has allowed us a generous 'footprint' in the park for this event so we should have an amazing course.
So save the date and we'll dribble out the details on sponsorship and registration and such over the next few weeks (as in bump the post).

This event was a great success last year, and Jim and the EDGC have raised thousands of dollars over the last few years through the Food Toss. That turns into several thousand meals for people in Lane County who don't know where their next meal is coming from. My family will be making our annual donation to Food For Lane County at the Food Toss again this year. Come on out and have fun, help raise the profile of disc golf in Eugene, help get a course in at Alton Baker, and most importantly help feed a kid who needs your help!
I'll also chip in $10 to this year's Ace Bounty - who's in?
