Everyone involved wants to to what's right for the players so these percentages can be altered. I think he intended to come off as not being selfish and make it a multi fundraising event so it's not just all about him.
I just posted what Timmy asked me to post. I had nothing to do with this concept, I'm just donating some dyed discs to this event and Timmy doesn't do a lot of computer stuff and posting online.
Tim's concept was to make this a multiple fundraiser so it wasn't just about him. He is working delivering pizzas and has most of his expenses for this trip covered. I do not know the circumstances as to why Disc Van Go is in need of help from the disc golf community. He may need to post on this thread to articulate his status and position.
Also I had never heard of Born2BFly before a week ago but what I have heard, it is a new company designed by this guy from Klickitat WA who wants to sponsor players with gear and tourney fees.
As for Timber Park, Tim heard that they were in need of a couple new baskets.
These are all good questions Bob, I think Tim's intent was that this event was not supposed to pay for both their entire expenses as both Tim and Sean have jobs right now and they both cash regularly in tourneys. I think his concept was to make a fun event and help out multiple parties and take a little out of the bite of their trip expenses.
Thanks for the reply Steve..................makes more sense now! It just seemed odd that a fundraiser for the players netted them very little compared to the others. AND it sounds just like Tim to be thinkin of others needs. I played the last fund raiser for Tim a couple years ago and YES it was a blast. Can't wait to play again and help two of disc golfs great people.
