Picked up a couple more sponsors for the event and registrations are already starting to roll in. We hope to eclipse everything about last year's tournament. Thanks to Lindy's Grocery Store and Joan's Trophy for coming on as sponsors.

Also, we are happy to announce that one of the four discs in the player's packs will be a tournament hot stamped Prodigy disc!

We are excited to announce that the Peoria Frisbee Club has come on board as a major sponsor and will be helping run Bradley Park for the tournament. They will also be selling discs at the tournament.

In addition we are excited to announce that the Pekin Visitor's Bureau has come on as a major sponsor. We are really grateful for both of these organizations stepping up.

In conjunction with this announcement we are happy to announce that we will add at least $7,000 to the pro purse. This number is climbing every day.

In addition, we are excited to announce that the first 100 AM's to register will get a custom stamped Roc 3 in their player's packs. More and more registrations are coming in so get signed up today!

I'm on the fence this year with my girlfriends birthday party being Saturday night. If I cash can you mail a check to me or with anyone from my area that stays? Possibly PayPal it to me? 5 hour wait from final round to payouts is a long time and a 3.5-4 hour drive after would make it tough to get back in time.

We would absolutely be okay with mailing you your check or paypalling it to you.

I will support this tournament just because of its support for St Judes. That place saved my sanity and I hope it can continue to save other victims of cancer until we finally find a cure. I'm trying to line it up with work to be in for this one. Hope it happens!

Picked up some more sponsors and we can now say that we will have at least $9000 added to the pro purse. Also, the AM player's pack is four discs and more! Thanks to the following for coming on board as sponsors: Savvy Graphics, Innova, Discraft, and Gracies.

On Saturday Gracies Chicago Grille will be serving food, drinks, etc at Morton. Be prepared to get some of their awesome food as he will be serving barbecue, burgers, pulled pork, hot dogs, homemade chips, etc.

We are approaching 50 registrations and we are hoping to pass last year's total of 192. We talked with a lot of top pros last weekend at Worlds and its looking like a lot of top pros will show up again. Get signed up now to help us out with the players packs and food!
