If you see that I did anything wrong in scores just let me know, and I'll have it fix.

Nick, first of all I would like to thank you for all the time you and the Buffalo Chips put in to this tournament/ course. It is great to see scores go in immediately after the tournament. That's how it SHOULD be.

Here are a few things that I think would make the tournament run a little smoother next year/ improve the enjoyment.
1. I would attempt to bump up the players pack for a B-Tier. Maybe a T-Shirt and a disc. a) The PDGA mandates a $25 dollar minimum for B-Tier player packs. b) No offense, but getting just a T-Shirt for paying $50 dollars kind of sucks.
2. I would not play the two-meter rule on the hanging basket, no one seemed to like that ruling. Even though that didn't happen.

Overall this event was fun as always, though I wish I would have played a lot better. The Hanging Basket on 1 is really cool! Maybe think about a basket in the ground on hole 2 to add to it?

Thanks again for all you do.

I think you may have James & Roger Slaten's scores reversed, because I thought Roger finished 3rd.

Also, I'm not sure how it's listing the scores in comparison to par. For example, I had a 157 and it's listed correctly, but it says that I was -5 when I thought I was +13. Is it considering some holes as par 4s while everyone just adds them up as all 3s?

Thanks to you, Ed, Robin, and everyone else who helped you, Terry, Jim, Shawn, and their helpers for getting the basket up, Will for funding it, and everyone else I'm forgetting. Also thanks for getting these scores in quickly--I'm curious to see how it affects the Southern Indiana Series points.

I thought the hanging basket was the coolest and that the disk on basket 2m rule should be in effect in every tourney on that hole fosure..

Thanks Nick and Ed - it was a great weekend - great to say after a weekend I didnt play so well that it was still a fantastic time
You guys did a great job with the overflowing # of golfers - some may not like the 5 packs - but this tourney has had a 100+ players for the past 3 years - that is phenomenal especially in these times when golfers have so many options to play weekend after weekend - and so many choose Buffalo to be the place to be

Thanks to Terry, Shawn, and the rest of the Buffalo Chips - course looked great -

Props to Mickey Pennington for being the first Ace on the hanging basket - he aced it just before the first round - Congrats to Daniel Allgeier for hitting #1 during the round and to Scott Rief for hitting hole #18 - nice shots

Thanks to Jeremy, Johnny, and Damon for running Doubles and Glow Doubles - at least I got two wins before - not winning a few hours later the next day

Thanks to Papeno's a great local country kitchen and pizza joint - great place for breakfast, dinner, or a longer then expected lunch break - if you didnt eat there this year, hit them up next time you play Buffalo Trace

As for Papeno's, don't hold yesterday against them---I know Ed & Nick went in earlier in the week to forewarn them about a possible influx, but I don't know if they quite believed it. I've eaten there tons of times and that's the only time I've ever had to wait more than about 10 minutes to get a stromboli. I felt bad for the poor waitress because she was the only one on the floor; she was busting her tail and was very apologetic. She said when I was paying "if it was up to me I'd give you guys your meals for having to wait so long."

Does anyone remember the distances for each of the added holes? I went to input my score for tracking purposes and noticed I forgot to write them down.

So $10 player packs are ok now? I can read the rules but a pack without a disc seems kind of silly. I know as a AM player the packs are part of the fun and some of us still hang disc up. I was told why the packs did not have a disc and I think Nick should post the whole truth since it was not his fault.

scottyb

I think that's personal preference really, a lot of Ams don't like discs in players packs and want something else. $10 isn't fine necessarily it's the minimum, it might seem easy to you guys to just give out all this money but the bottom line really does matter. Most TDs will take a hit in their own pocketbook after it's all said and done. I'm sure Nick would have let you chip in the required money for him to get a disc to each Am. Just messing, and a B tier has always been $10 since I've been TD'ing. Step over to the darkside and become a TD, you'll quickly learn how little the payback/reward is, and how big the headaches are. HAHA

I just know I did help with EVO and Nick F. had awesome packs without taking anything away from the pros. Also you says Ams want something other then a disc and that is true for some but I bet it's a Dri-Fit shirt. lol! I mean a few of us just played in Murray. KY and it was a small tour but we still got nice packs. My point is when your a newer player the packs still matter to a lot of us and that's all but with that said it was a great turn out and good for the sport.

Hey, I thought the player pack was a bit scant, but in their defense, the payouts were fat. I got my money back in value for tying 9th in Rec. Pro Disc ($12), Star Disc ($16), & Mini ($2). Can't complain about that.

But a dri-fit would have been nice :)

MarcusGresham

All the payouts were way sweet. I know the highest I'd ever finished before was a tie for 3rd and I got like 5x as much for 2nd in rec Saturday as I did for that 3rd.

Let me shed some light into the matter of players packages. The player package minimum value is $10, we gave a t-shirt a mini plus a snack for your bag. I know there wasn't a tournament stamp disc offered but we did payout fat this year for the AM's and the Pro's both considering the lack of sponsors. I appreciate everyone's feedback, and I will take everything that has been said and use it to make next year even better.

plus a snack for your bag.


There was food involved? Oh man, how did a fat guy like me miss out on free food. I gotta pay better attention.

It's not just you. I thought about making a thread that was just some type of wierd happy comment to change the mood a little. It still sounds like a good idea. lol

These are the correct #'s. Thanks to everyone who came out! Thanks to all for packing their trash. I went out there today and checked out the trash situation. looked real good for as many players that where there. I hope the guy who got bit by the dog is okay. That was unfortunate.

Sorry guys, I didn't realize it was $10.

Like I said, had a ton of fun. Thanks again for all you do Nick.
