    like this.
    The skins tournament that I ran two years ago for the CVO raised over $250. I think everyone had a good time too. It was also a good way to get rid of some discs that the club has sitting around.

    The club would get paid back the money that they have invested in discs and AM's could turn around and sell/trade the discs if they don't want them. That was where most of the money came from like most tournaments.

    Pro payout was 75% of take-in and Am payout was 1 disc per hole where the disc progressively got better from hole 1 to 18 (ex. DX on holes 1,2,3,4,5&6 Pro on holes 7,8,9,10&11, Champ 12,13,14&15 and Star on 16,17&18) and all of the money went to pay for the discs and go to the fundraiser. We could almost order discs just for the event if we wanted to.

    Sam, I can help you run a skins tournament if you want.

    I'm still going to sponsor this year but just give me a few weeks. I have to see if it's going to be Gorilla Discs & Snap Disc Golf Gear or just one of the two.

    Does the club have any disc hanging around. If so, about how many, what kind and plastic?

    The disc we have are going to be used up for the FATPAD! I am about to place an order with Innova. If we need to get some disc let me know.

    I would like to make one last push to discuss the courses
    being used. The Fun Farm is just not that great of a place and is
    35-50 minutes away from most parts of the city. From what
    I hear they aren't cutting the grass and the course is not in
    A+ condition.

    IQ however has had some major blood sweat and tears put into
    it. Major hours have been put in by disc golfers. Who cares what other
    tournaments are run at CV and IQ. This is an A tier event. Lots of
    players will not be local.

    IQ is a nice balance to CV. Also IQ is in an Olmsted Park. The Olmsted
    Park system is the PRIDE of our city. What better way to spend the day
    than at an Olmsted park. Really think about it. Think about the people that
    come from out of town. Part of the memories come from were you spent
    your time playing disc golf. IQ is a much better place in my opinion.

    Lastly, the sponsorship opportunities are at IQ. I am going to bet we
    could get more $10 sponsors if we included IQ. I also bet we could get
    more volunteers if we used IQ.

    Why are we not using IQ again?

    I honestly don't have any objections other than not having played the new IQ. Let me think about it. If the LDGC and the Allstars joined forces this would surely be the biggest tourney ever in da ville.

    Thanks Jeremy.

    Local players step up NOW!

    If you want to play IQ instead of Fun Farm
    make a pledge. Put a little cash up to ensure
    we keep an A tier in our city. If this is important
    to you now is the time to step up and make your
    voice heard.

    Let's make this the biggest tournament to date.

    Take care everyone.

    sounds like a great idea

    ill pledge $10 bucks

    without the new albanian as a major sponsor - we should keep the tourney in ky and use our two louisville courses - lots of good can come of this

    louisville golfers have done a ton in town to improve iq - what better way to showcase it then as part of a national level A-Tier

    Fun farm doesn't seem to care too much about disc golf, why should disc golf care about the fun farm?

    Keep it local. Last year was good, we had a big sponsor in Indiana, and that was great. But without the big Indiana sponsor, we should keep it local. There are more opportunities for sponsorship away from the fun farm.

    The fun farm can do it's own event if there is interest.

    My opinion

    Sounds like a great chance for both clubs to put on something together. Play should be faster at IQ as well. I like it.
