We have discussed all the permits and other fees associated with the Series and agree that $3 per player should cover everything. In time we may build a surplus fund for expenses and other costs. Any cash that is left over in this fund will be rolled over for a Series payout.... Along with any sponsorships gathered (hint hint
$2 Ace-pot ($1 per round) along with the $3 Series fee will bring the total deduction from each entry fee to $5 total.
With this in mind we were thinking the entry fees should be:
-$30 Open Pro
-$25 Advanced and AM
I am also going to be offering a $5 optional Player's Pack of a "Water-Shed Utility Pouch" to keep your essentials dry. The Player's Pack along with the $5 Ace-pot/Fee would bring it to $10 total from the entry fee. Pros would then in essence be playing for $20 each and the AMS $15.
Does that make sense to everyone? I thought I would make the Player's Packs an option to avoid confusion over cash flow etc. If you don't want it, then opt out. It's that simple
Do these entry fees seem to high? Low? Thoughts on the Player's Packs? Please give us some input on how you would like to spend your Disc Golf allowance

ps. Does anyone know the actual entry fees for the SOWS? I heard they were $30 for Pros too?
I think ace pots should be optional and most people probably wouldn't get a players pack. $30 is a considerable raise in entry fee from the $20 of OLE and Ninkasi series in the past, but given the turnouts for the Ninkasi series last year it seems like a fee hike is do-able. It's nice to have the bigger payout $, but it's also nice to play a lower cost, more casual winter one-day tournament.
That being said, I personally would still play at $30, and I always buy into the ace pot. And I would definitely buy a Series logo disc or shirt or both, if available but I would not go for the players pack.
