It's $60, he's taking the PDGA's advice by listing it $10 higher for non-members, and then listing the $10 "discount" for members below.

Funny how he follows those guidelines, but then ignores the Tour Standards document where it says "TD's are strongly urged not to exceed the values listed in the tables". (It's $50 for C-tiers) - maybe he figured nobody would notice.

Any good reason why this Ledgestone guy gets some flack for every single thing he posts on here?

He took the PDGA advice on one topic, didn't on another. It is a suggestion, or an urging, not a rule.

This happens so often with his posts that I actually click on them just to see who bitches about his tournaments first on here. Dunno who he is, never played one of his tournaments but just thought I'd point out what seems so obvious.

$70 for a ctier seems a little outrageous. But, as usual, Im wrong. It's a $60 c tier.

Actually, I am just posting the tournament for Miles Parkhill, who runs Paragon Disc Golf. Its his tournament and he asked me to post it on the local forums. I was just copying and pasting the information.

In all sincerity, thanks for posting your tournaments here. I hope to make one sometime in the future.

No problem - Miles does a great job and hosts a good tournament. $60 is a little steep for a C Tier for Pros but I guess it would make it a higher payout. [/code]

I like LIS tournaments. Actually wish there was one this weekend so I wouldn't have to drive 2.5 hours to Des Moines for the closest tournament. The negativity is a bummer but whatever it is what it is. I understand the other side of it too.

Thanks Matt - we are actually helping with an event in Decatur this weekend, the 2nd Annual Soy City Challenge. We had 90 people last year. Its a fun, 22 hole design on an old ball golf course.
