Hey Coach, if I may suggest, maybe folks would like to know what this "fund raising" designation means. First how will it impact payout. Maybe you should explain or even post payout schedules so people know if it is pretty much like a normal event, where you can win stuff. Second how about some info or links explaining this "Peace Child Orphanage in Nepal" so people can gage the worthiness of the cause. Why should we be fired up about chillin in Nepal rather than chillin on this continent for example? Is there anything special about this event from the players perspective? What do these shirts look like? What are you auctioning and will those proceeds also go to the cause? Maybe some don't even know how special this course is. These are just some ideas for generating interest. Also, just so you know, a midday "bump" every day sounds a whole lot like something entirely different than what you probably mean to old hippies that also go to DG events.
Discjazz thank you for your input. this is only my second tournament to host so i am still learning all the things you just suggested. when i get home tonight i will address all of the above ideas. thank you again never even thought of all that.
The pay out will be a typical JUDGES pay out. I will be paying out to the top 1/3 of all pro divisions and the top half of all AM divisions. $5 will be taken out of all entry fees. $2 for SN fees and $3 to give to the peace child orphanage.
The silent auction will consist of disc, clothing, and other items with all the proceeds from that going to the peace child orphanage.
Buddy Butts park is one of our finest courses in the Jackson area. Located on the edge of Clinton and Jackson it is an old WWII POW camp with 18 baskets. It has a good mix of open and wooded holes with plenty if room to let lose a few bombs.
I recently took a trip and visited Peace Child Orphanage in Nepal. It wasn't until I went and saw the standard of living there that I was truly a rich man. There is one bathroom for 30 people with no shower or sink. Two small rooms for 18 kids to sleep. Rice is the only meal they can afford for them to eat EVERYDAY. They recently built a new school that still needs some more work done. What ever amount of money is raised I will send to peace child and let them decide how to spend it. Rather it be on a lice treatment for the kids or new bedding for all the kids. I have been richly blessed by my Lord and Savior and just want to use my resources to do the same for others.
