The Springfield Disc Golf Club is having an event on February 3, 2007.
It will be the Inaugural Prairieland Putting Put-Down.
It will be two rounds in Lincoln Park followed by an indoor Putting
Tournament at the State Fairgrounds.
At Lincoln Park:
We will begin with a Doubles Tourney using the "Ice Bowl" format - we will be collecting canned goods for local charity.
We will follow that with a quick round of 200' feet and in for a warm up for the Putting Tourney...
We will then move to the State Fairgrounds:
Bracket Tourney w/ 40% payout to First Place
What is "Skee-Ball"? Skee-Ball with be three temp baskets set up 20' [10 pts] - 40' [20 pts] - 60' [50 pts] away with 10 putters - Highest Recorded Score wins - tie will be decided by a putt-off...
We will have a room available for sponsors to show and hawk their wares…
The Total Cost of the Package is $35.00 and Five Canned Goods per Participant
What’s in the Player’s Pack?
We will be using the GDSTour White Package - 3 disc player’s pack
and the following...
Entry fee for one in an “Ice Bowl” Doubles Tourney – for trophies and prizes
Entry fee for one in a 200’-and-In Ace Run Circuit –
Your $1.00 entry in the Event Ace Pot is included in the Package*
A Ten Dollar Bracket Ticket – for your shot at the 40% Cash Pot Prize
3 Knock-Out Tickets. – You vs. Nine Others for Custom Stamp Wizards
We want to have a bracketed tournament with winner getting 40% of the Ten
Dollar Fee - additional cash prizes will go down farther in the standings.
I’ll do some quick math for you – If 100 participants show up, the winner gets $400.00
. How far the cash prizes go down the bracket depends on how many folks show up… More Players, more payouts…
It will be one on one:
Each "putter" flips his disc - first one who is "heads" gets to pick the
first place to put from. If he makes it and his opponent misses, he has
got to make it again. If he does his opponent is eliminated and he moves
on to the next round. It alternates back and forth until there is a
While the Bracket is running - we will be having games of Knock-Out.
$1.00 Cut-Throat ticket to enter against 9 other "putters". The winner of
the Knock-Out game gets the Ten Knock-Out tickets/dollars and can trade
them in for a Custom Stamped Wizard.
Three tickets will be part of the package but more can be bought
if the player wants to play more.
We will also be playing Skee-Ball. What is "Skee-Ball"? There will be three temp baskets set up 20' [10 pts] - 40' [20 pts] - 60' [50 pts] away with 10 putters - Highest Recorded Score wins the prize - tie will be decided by a putt-off...
