LSU Disc Golf Club Tournament

LSU Disc Golf Club Tournament
January 25, 2012 10:34PM
Hello all,

A few other students and I are in the process of forming an LSU disc golf club. Over the last week our club has been forming rapidly. We have gained new members, have an article in the LSU newspaper that is being published tomorrow (1/25), and received one of the four allotted formal invitations to the National Championships in Augusta, GA during April.

We have been brainstorming ways we can fund raise for entry fees for various tournaments throughout the next month and we've been considering hosting a tournament. As you may infer, none of us have put together a tournament and we could definitely use some advice. Below are a list of questions that I have come up with regarding tournaments.

1) On average, How far in advance is a tournament need to be announced prior to the actual date?
2) How many golfers, if any, would you expect to take part in our fundraising tournament?
3) What steps do we have to take to formally schedule a tournament and how should we advertise?
3) What should the entry fee be and what does it cost to set up a tournament?

Thanks in advance for any help you all offer, it is greatly appreciated!

-Kevin

I hope you guys can throw past the fifty yard line LOL. JK but seriously this is a good thing for DG. Love to hear colleges getting involved in courses on campuses and students organizing clubs and trnys. Next we need to get more high schools into DG.

There is a group(BRDGA) in Baton Rouge that host many events a year, I would suggest talking with them. They should be able to tell you anything you need to know. I will let them know this weekend about your club.

I had no idea that there were any other serious disc golfers at LSU. I have been wanting to compete in this event for several years now but thought it was impossible to field a team at LSU. I even inquired about competing individually only but was told that was not allowed. I just graduated in December but I just checked the NCDGC website and it states that if you graduate in December you are eligible to compete for that school in the following spring's tournament. I have also cashed in pro at a PDGA event and thought that would disqualify me from competing but it states that only those classified as "touring pros" (which is only about 125 people) are ineligible by their standards. So, it appears that I am eligible to compete. I would love one last shot to bring home a national title.

I have been at LSU for the past six years and have played over 100 tournaments during that time. I am also rated 974 by the PDGA. I would be glad to help yall in any way possible. I will send you a private message giving you my phone number.
