    Default Maria Benham Benefit Open

    [attachment=0:3nqz85k8]benhams.JPG[/attachment:3nqz85k8]The Maria Benham Benefit Open
    A PDGA Sanctioned C-tier Event
    November 15, 2008

    Players meeting @ 8:30am @ Otter Creek Park
    Round One Tee-off @ 9:00 @ Otter Creek Park
    Round Two Tee-off TBA @ Radcliff City Park

    All Open Divisions ~ $52

    Local Disc Golfer, Troy Benham’s (#4131) wife (Maria) was in a motorcycle accident Sunday October 12th. She was going around a sharp curve on 1238 when a truck pulling a trailer swerved into her lane. The truck and the trailer that was in tow struck Maria and her motorcycle and the impact nearly severed Maria’s leg. She was able to maintain control of her bike after the impact and bring it to a stop before she laid it down on the side of the road. Her ability to keep the bike upright saved her from sustaining even greater injuries than she did.

    The unfortunate news is that Maria lost a lot of blood and the trauma was so sever to her leg that they had to amputate it from about four to six inches above the knee. As bleak as all this sounds the family has chosen to remain grateful that the injuries she sustained did not cost her life. We are encouraging the family to NOT morn the loss of her leg but to celebrate the fact that she is alive and we are blessed to be able to spend the days to come with her.

    This was a hit and run so they’re being forced to take care of the bill on their own. She is still currently recovering in the hospital and we all know how expensive extended stays in a hospital can be. This benefit will be held to help aid them in the bills that they will incur from this tragedy.

    $10 from every entry fee will be given to Troy and Maria!!!

    So come on out for another chance to boost your PDGA rating and to support a GREAT cause!

    By the way, and I can only speak for myself and not others, but why not give them everything except the sanctioning fee's. I would gladly play for a rating only. As a matter of fact if i place take whatever I would recieve in plastic and give them the money for that if that is possible. I'm only coming for the sake of Maria and Troy.

    Player's could choose to donate their prizes back to the family however that is COMPLETELY up to each player. That's a VERY kind suggestion.
