PrairieLand Putting Putt-Down

Postby Jwt4412 » Sun Nov 05, 2006 10:05 pm

UPDATED:

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:

Food
Bracket Tourney w/ 40% payout to First Place
Knock-Out
"Skee-Ball"
Longest Putt

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
Food.

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
winner.

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...

We will also have longest putt contest for prizes, as well.

First do you think there would be any interest from guys in your neck of
the woods on coming on down? We are looking for anchor sponsors from the various surrounding areas.

Send us your best putters…

We want to crown a PrairieLand Putting Champion.

We are trying to find out if there is any interest from the Quad Cities,
ChicagoLand, Champaign, Decatur, Peoria, St. Louis Area and beyond...

Would you guys be interested, if so – we are looking for a headcount – just email me at jwt4412@yahoo.com?

Any questions? Just email me. So let’s review; for $35.00 you get fed, you get three discs, you get an Ice Bowl for trophies, you get an Ace Run, you get pick up Knock-Out games, and you get a chance at a 40% Pot Cash Prize and you might get your mug on DiscGolfTV.com – but most of all you GET Bragging Rights!

*if you want in on our club progressive Ace Pot, you got to be a member [$15.00] – Forms will be available at the event. Bag Tags are also available and the Bag Tag event concludes at our Capital City Challenge event later in the year.

Sponsorships are available - we are especially looking for prizes for the "Skee-Ball" and the Longest Putt. Two of the manufacturers are already on board and DiscGolfTV.com has expressed interest on attending and doing a segment for the their website…

I don't want to stir anything, but I figure since it's a disc golf club inviting people, we should probably put our best foot forward and go to this thing as the QC Disc Golf Club--sponsored or supported by Iron Lion Disc Golf. Just an idea, gang. That way there doesn't have to be any "cuts"--everyone makes the "team". I hate it when there has to be the "chosen ones"--especially when the gals get left out, like for the team events. We may not drive as far, but we've got the putting game! Food for thought.

QC Disc Golf will represent and rule!!

Everybody is invited...

We were yapping during leagues one time here at the SDGC how centrally located we were here in Central Illinois... Imagine That... Any whooo, we thought it would be cool to get everybody together at one time from all around and just have a good time...

We understand that it is a long drive for some so we thought we would throw is much in as we could for one event without getting too crazy.

Nothing else is going on in Feb, so we thought Feb.

It's gonna be cold, so we though indoors...

Indoors - let's putt.

So for the $35.00 we figure we got to feed people - so we thought/thinking Chilli...

Three Discs, Sticker, a doubles tourney, an ace run, $1.00 into the event Ace Pot, $10.00 entry fee to our putting tourney and three Knock-Out tickets for chances to win more discs...

Fun for all... not just the best...

But it would be great to be there when somebody knocks one down from 135' out to win $400.00 - and remember he/she would have had to do it twice...

Anyway, end of commercial... did I mention DiscGolfTV.com is planning on covering the event?

Again in review, ALL ARE WELCOME...

By the way if you are a member of the SDGC - the both the Wednesday and Saturday League progressive ace pots are open game during the doubles tourney and the Ace Run...

Hotel Rate...

Postby Jwt4412 » Mon Nov 27, 2006 11:14 pm

I have been able to get a rate of $69.00 per night - any room at the local Microtel for the event... Good Enough or would it need to be better?

69.00 / 4 = $17.25 plus taxes per person - of course I hear 8 people can fit in a room...

The PrairieLand is now a registered IceBowl2007.com event.

Request for input: It has been brought up the ability to buy Mulligans for charity - has anybody played in event that does this? Is it a good idea?

Thanks in advance for your input...

It is official...

We got a $50.00 per night rate at the Microtel available both Friday and Saturday night.

Even better the VP of Marketing will be comping one room each night on his personal AMEX card from those players registered in the hotel... There is a chance one night of hotel stay could be free for you...

He will be at the event so you can thank him personally, I know I will.

Instructions on how to get the rate will be posted on the pre-registration page at the website which should be up and running by the weekend.

Questions? - just ask...

We would also like to thank Microtel for $100.00 that is being donated to St. John's Bread Line... The five cans of food/$5.00 and the Mulligan money will all be donated to St. John's Bread Line...

Jes,

We are going to have a women's division for the Doubles Tourney can I list you as a contact person over on the WDGA if they have any questions?

The trophies for the Ice Bowl portion of the event are going to be "Winner" bag tags for the doubles teams that win Open, Am, Woment, and Wisinois [Deaf League]...

I need to know what email address I can post for you on that thread over on the WDGA...

Thanks,

Trotter
