Gentle Giant Open - March 22nd
March 12, 2014 10:52AM
I'm sure JC will post this info soon, but I wanted to get it out there:

All divisions will be $32. We will be taking $12 total from everyone's entry fees. $5 will go to Travis Reynolds Scholarship Fund, $5 will go to South Alabama disc golf team to offset expenses for traveling to nationals, and $2 will go for SN fees.

We will have at least 3 disc golf bags up for grabs (1 backpack and 2 tourney bags with straps) as well as several discs as prizes (raffles, CTPs, rings of fire, etc.) There will be cash payout for pro divisions and merchandise payout for amateur divisions. Help us honor Travis and support our local disc golf team by coming out and helping us raise as much as possible for a couple of awesome causes.

Registration and first round will take place at USA.

One hour after cards are turned in from first round, we will move to Municipal Park for second round.

More info to come.

Weather is supposed to be nice. Temps in the 60s to low 70s with a decent cloud cover. Let's have an awesome showing to honor Travis and support the USA disc golf team!

We will be making a change to hole 8 on the USA campus. The basket will be moved up which is marked with a white X inside a circle near the water's edge. Ams will tee off from the same tee. Pros and advanced will tee off from further back and up the hill. Arrows are painted on the ground for anyone looking today. I painted the pro tees besides the ones with wooden posts.
Re: Gentle Giant Open - March 22nd

I haven't played USA in a long time. Are all the tee's marked? Plan on getting there super early tomorrow to check it out.

What's been changed since say... last season?
Re: Gentle Giant Open - March 22nd
March 21, 2014 09:45PM
A lot...too much to list, but I should be out there around 7:30.

Thank you to everyone who came out today for a great cause. We had 73 total players. I know everything didn't run as smoothly as we would have liked, but hopefully some of the prizes made up for the hiccups.

After everything is said and done (SN Fees and paying JC back for the money he fronted to buy the discs), it looks like we will be able to give just north of $1000 to the Travis Reynolds Scholarship Fund as well as to the USA disc golf team.

Winners that I can remember off the top of my head:

Pro Open - Barrett Johnson
Pro Master - Mike Brown
Pro Women - Sara Kendall Senkbeil
Advanced - Justin Huff
Advanced Master - Mike Bennett
Intermediate - Joey Downey
Novice - Josh Rhoads

Thank you everyone who came out and helped us raise money! You guys/gals are awesome!

A BIG thank you to everyone who helped out, sponsored holes, donated prizes for Raffle and Rings of Fire, and brought everything together for a successful tournament yesterday:

JC Rohe - TD
Scott Webber - Ace Pot Throwoff and Bag Throwoff
Charles Zalopany - Scores
Caleb Huber - Temp Basket
Matt Coxwell - Ring of Fire
Andrew Montgomery - Raffle
Carlen Mann - Raffle
Kaitlyn Poiroux - Raffle
Jc Cannon - incessant yelling that helped raise a ton of money on the bag throw-off ($153 from this alone)
Southside, Phillip Hall - supplied some well-placed water kegs out on the courses both rounds

Sorry if I left anyone out, but thank you for your help.

I forgot the Downey brothers and Codey Faircloth for help with scores and setting up the board. Also, huge shoutout to Michelle "Snap" Cartwright for taking down names and keeping me sane during signups.

Results are posted Gentle Giant Open. If corrections are needed (I'm sure they will be), post on here.

Looks like the final count will be $1100 going to Travis Reynolds Scholarship Fund and $1100 going to the USA Disc Golf Team.

Thanks

I know today is April Fool's Day, but this is not a joke. I just sent by paypal $1100 to the Travis Lee Reynolds Memorial Scholarship Fund. Thank you to everyone who played in the tournament, donated, sponsored, or supported in any way. Without you, this would NOT have been possible.
