Put your ???$ in. I may be playing advanced but it's the same course and I can't throw 350' so you got that going for you
You say this like the IA tour is a business...Marketing, really? Shane goes out and gets dozens of sponsors, on his time, and offers at least one prize worth over your 20$ in every event. 0 reasons? The "top 2 guys on tour" already gave you a few reasons, you chose to not listen...If you don't want a chance to win prizes and end of year payouts, don't join.Detra319 wrote:Ok says the top 2 guys on tour. Thanks for saying you got paid out, crazy. I am saying the Iowa tour has shown me 0 marketing and 0 reason to spend 20 on a tag the last 2 years. I understand there were lots of people in the tournies 2 years ago when there were fewer tournies. In the meantime, the product is the same as 2 years ago but the market has changed. What is the Iowa tour doing to keep up?
I think part of the problem is that there are multiple people selling tags and the person keeping points doesn't always get informed on who bought them. I don't see why it's really a problem that you had to say something.snelling1 wrote:First year buying a tag and prob the last wasn't even on the points list till I said something then I'm only on there for one tournament and made it to a few more than one
If you plan on playing multilpe Iowa Tour events then it's a good deal. I still haven't figured out how points work but I do know that if you play good you get a lot of points, if you get the most points you win. I got a basket and a free tag for 2013. No complaints here!Detra319 wrote:Obviously there are payouts. What are the payouts? How does the point system work? And by marketing I mean how the hell does it work other than I am supposed to hand money to someone and expect them to maybe hand me money back later in the year?

In short, I think Claring/Shane has done a great job in getting it going but maybe hasn't done the best job of continuing to promote it. But I don't think anyone got shorted. There was really good value there. Maybe not everyone understood it, got enough out of it, or played well enough to take advantage, but I don't think anyone got mislead.
I don't know what the future is, or whether Shane is even going to keep doing it, but I would encourage any of you to come up with ideas that would help. As I've taken on more responsibility it's become a lot more clear that we're not lacking ideas, we lack on people to follow through. Anyone could step up to *promote* the Iowa Tour, it doesn't all have to fall on Shane. In fact, if someone wanted to step up and take it over it's likely that could happen.
