    Default Selling discs?

    I didn't want to hijack the CV Sponsor thread so I started a new one.

I don't think we should buy a lot, but if we buy 25 or 50 of the newest, hottest thing then we'll be able to move the discs fast so we don't have a bunch of money tied up in plastic.

    Star Katana's just came out in regular production so maybe we should order some. It's already a popular disc and I'm sure it will sell even faster at normal Star plastic price rather than CFR price. It could be a good way for the club to raise a little money for the CVO.

    Any other discs you can think of that are in high demand right now?

    Maybe we could get the discs custom stamped with something cool like the new club logo or the characture of Dave Feldberg?

    Thoughts?

    The CFR program is the way to go.
    They are cheap and usually great disc.

    What are the previous best sellers? The newest thing is not always the greatest but are sought after items. I think a mix of new disc and older best sellers is the best way to go. What about some other brands? I would like to get my hands on a few custom stamped z Predators in the future and there are alot of Buzzz throwers here.

    CFR's are cheap. They only cost $6 a piece, the problem lies with those who charge $25 a disc. No one said they had to be sold for that price, it is just a suggested price. In todays market $25 is kinda steep. Its no different than the State saying no to a disc golf course. Sure you want to pay for it but the state still has to fund maintaining it. Money is tight and if all the business owners of the world would figure out that lowering the price actually sells more, we would all be in good shape. You can sell way more discs much faster at a cheaper price. Yes you have to sell more to make up the difference but they will sell at twice the rate. Think about it!

    Get some CFR Glo Teebirds and I'll buy 2. Go with the characture, I think that's a really good idea/stamp.

    Yup, that's how supply and demand works.

    I was looking at the CFR list and I'm pretty excited about a couple discs on there. I don't want to give anything away in case we decide not to order it, but I am drooling on my keyboard a little.

    I think if the club buys discs - we need a plan to utilize them -

    we dont just want them sitting in boxes to sell on the course

    We need to use them for fundraising purposes directly -

    skins tourneys - non-sanctioned events -
