2013 Perkerson Park Open 2/24/13 - 6th Annual - PDGA C-Tier

Postby jritger » Thu Jan 10, 2013 12:17 am

2013 Perkerson Park Open Feb 24th, 2013
PDGA C-Tier
6th Annual
Flyer: https://sites.google.com/site/jritger/Home/2013%20Perkerson%20Park%20Open%20Flyer.pdf

Registered Players List
# of Spots Remaining = SOLD OUT. Get on the wait list.

Entry Fees:
By 2/23/2012 = $30 entry. Add $1 if Paypal ($31).
Day of registration = Hope not to have any availability, but it will be $40 entry, cash only.

5 divisions: Open, Advanced, Intermediate, Recreational, Womens Advanced.
Same format as last year -- low fixed entry fees, no disc included. We'll have limited CFR discs for sale. All divisions pay the same low entry and receive the same players pack with custom mini and custom trophies for top 3 spots for each division. This is a non-traditional, trophy-only event. Your entry fees directly fund the donation, less expenses.


Registration
Step 1 = Fill out this form to submit your registration (Mandatory). http://tinyurl.com/aql7kkb
Step 2 = Pay me via Paypal (http://www.paypal.com) or drop a check in the mail. My Paypal is jritger@gmail.com, add $1 to cover transaction cost, and be sure to select "Send money to Friends and Family".
Paypal is preferred, but you can mail a check to: John Ritger, 625 Cameron St SE, Atlanta, GA 30312.

Schedule
Check-in: 7:45 - 8:45am
Players Meeting: 9:00am
1st Round Tee-off: ~9:30am
Lunch: 1 hour from last card
2nd Round Tee-off: ~1:30pm
Should be finished by 5:00. Looking for help with scores to expedite payouts, let me know if you can help.

1 day, 2 rounds of 18 holes:
Layout = the new permanent layout. Par = 58 or 59 (depending on status of hole #9). Permanent teepads will NOT be installed prior to this event -- likely coming in March.
Rec plays short tees both rounds.
Open, Adv & Int divisions play long tees both rounds.

Lunch
Smokin' Chefs will have hot food available for purchase on site between rounds. They will have burgers and hot dog lunch packages available for $5-$7, so bring some extra cash.

Side Action: There will be significant additional day of cash divisional side action, back by popular demand.
CTPS/Ace Fund: $10 = all-in. 8 $1 CTPS + $2 ace fund. Only option is all-in, or all-out (I won't split it up)
Divisional cash side action: $10 int/adv and $20 open.

*********************

Saturday Feb 2/23/2012: Practice/Doubles Action:
2pm = Doubles action on tourney layout. $10 buying + optional $5 "winner takes all" action
**Workday had been planned, but we've made enough progress we don't need it.

*********************

This remains a charitable event, hence the low entry fee and trophy only payout. Proceeds this year will entirely be used to install the permanent disc golf course in Perkerson Park through an affiliation with Friends of Perkerson Park (501c3).

We have to raise $8,000 in monetary donations to be able to access the entire $46,500 matching grant we've been awarded to complete the installation of concrete teepads, signage and recompense trees. This is in addition to past funds raised. Thus far, we've raised about $600 of the $8,000.

We have raised approximately $9,700 in the last 5 years of this event for the Sullivan Center and Friends of Perkerson Park.

**********************

2 sponsors already:
Ga Tech Ultimate
Allgood pools (disc golfer owned!): http://www.allgoodpools.com/

Something new for major sponsors this year is that you will receive advertising on our website for 6 months (silver level) or 12 months (gold level and up). The website is live as of yesterday and will be updated by end of this month. http://www.perkersondiscgolf.com.

A few more people have registered, but still have about 60 spots. Playing this event 100% benefits the course development and a strong event is crucial to our efforts to fundraise $8,000 to complete the installation, so put it on your calendar and sign up! Remember that the entry fees are $30 in advance and jump to $40 day of the event, if there are spots left. This event has sold out every year for the past 5 years and typically sells out very quickly once it gets down under 40 spots left.

Picked up another sponsor, Matador Cantina in Glenwood Park.

For lunch we'll have hot dogs and burgers ready on site and available for purchase.

I put in a small order of CFR discs -- champion glow firebirds. These will be available at the event for $15/ea.

Never have, never will for this event. Entry fees are the same for all divisions, and all divisions are trophy only, so I don't see the point of adding the age based divisions.

Registration list updated. 55 spots left.

Lots of work is being done on the course prior to the tournament by Andrew Fish & crew. They are adding granite stairs and getting hole 9 playable in the par 4 position -- the course is going to look awesome by tourney date. That said, get in your registrations now or get shut out.

A note on registrations. This event is sanctioned through the competition endowment program since it benefits a charity, and the $10 non-PDGA fee is waived. If you sign up through discgolfscene, they will charge you that fee (I can't turn it off). So sign up using the directions in the top post if that applies to you.

We'll have hot food on site available for purchase. I haven't received a menu yet, but it's going to be hamburgers and hot dogs -- I think he's planning to have packages available for $5 or $6.

7 spots left as of right now.

Just about sold out. I'll likely let in some extra folks using a ghost card, like I usually do.

A few other updates:

Lunch info is updated in the top post.

This is our best sponsorship year ever -- thanks everyone for making that happen. There is still time to sponsor, if anyone is interested. The following people/businesses have sponsored (sorry if I missed anyone):

Gold level -- Matador Cantina
Silver level -- Allgood Pools, GA Tech Ultimate, Spine Divine, Jeff Killingsworth
Hole sponsor level -- Taco Mac, Thinking Man Tavern, Fayette County DG Club, Derek Rader, Barry Arnson, Rob Case, David Centofanti

Saturday -- We'll have a workday from 9am-12pm and doubles at 1pm. If we have a good turnout, hole 9 will be played in the brand new par 4 position for the tourney. I can't stay to run doubles, so that is contingent on somebody stepping up to run it. The course will be played from the carpet long teepads, not (necessarily) the blue stakes.


CFR discs -- these just arrived. I'll be selling any perkerson discs $15/ea; 2 for $25; 3+ = $12/ea. I have a bunch of full color, max weight, rancho rocs. And I have 30 Glo Champion Firebirds in weights from 165-175g that look like this: http://imgur.com/7xlLGEp

The limit of 72 has been hit; there will probably be an 80 person cap. We could have 84 people if hole 9 gets cleared out in time, but depends on volunteer turnout this Saturday.

So right now there are 5 spots left, maybe 9. Once it fills up I'll keep a wait list in the order I hear from people.

John,
I will take the last 4 holes sponsorships and a Silver level sponsorship.

Thanks for all the incredible work you have done to put this course in the ground.

Thanks Bill, I sent you an email with info.

We just set new pins for 9 long and a new practice basket position that's on drier ground. The par 4 is going to be tough but valid. That means we'll be capping registrations at 84 ... there is one spot as of right now.

Another update: Hole 9 is now playable, so instead of having a workday tomorrow in the wet, we're just going to run doubles @ 2pm. $10 buyin, with an optional $5 winner-take-all pot.

Need someone to bring a portable drill so we can move the baskets.

Scores are posted: http://www.pdga.com/tournament_results/100598/1258253582. I'll run detailed stats when I get a chance, but it might be a couple of weeks. Same for accounting, I think we raised over $3k but not 100% sure yet.

Thanks everyone who came out and especially Barry, Derek and everyone else who helped run things.

Dollar sets a new course record with a 47 (1064 rated) -- sick.
