I will just start with the Parks folks and see about the insurance issues... Is it possible to avoid the insurance issue by having waivers signed by participants? I have noticed this trend over the last couple years???????
Signed waivers are worthless from a legal standpoint. Get the insurance through the PDGA because it's cheap and it will CYA. Talk to Magilla about dates so you don't schedule anything over another local event. Find out who the park supervisor is and be courteous and respectful when informing them of your intentions. It would help if you could explain to them how this will benefit the park and the course itself. (Donate a certain percentage of entry fees to the park in exchange for them waiving any park fees). If done right, the rangers will work with you and help to prepare the course for the tournament. Good luck and have fun.
