Calling all April 27th events and the SN BoD

Calling all April 27th events and the SN BoD
April 16, 2013 07:54PM
I know a lot of SN players that have played in Monroe over the years know Marc Shipley.

Well Marc's mother has stage 1 breast cancer...Marc is holding an event on may 11th to raise money for Breast Cancer Awareness and also to help the woman that gave him birth....

This is what I am asking the events on April 27th to do:
hold a 50/50 raffle for this event and send the money to Marc.

This is what I am asking the BoD to do:
Donate the SN fees from that weekend to the cause.

There are 3 events that weekend:
Lafayette
Horn Lake
Jackason

If you have ever played a Monroe event you know what kind of person Marc is!!! Let's help him!! If you haven't had the honor to meet Marc, well he is one of the great people in SN!

So that is my spill.....What do ya'll think???

As discussed, Keith, we will forego the 50/50 raffle that was planned for the SNDC and hold one instead for this cause.

I hope the BOD doesn't even consider voting on donating the SN fees. Where do you draw the line? I am sure there is a disc golfer, or disc golf's father in law's second cousin's nephew suffering in every SN city but that doesn't mean we should donate the SN fees.

Im sure a few Boston marathon runners who lost limbs were disc golfers, should we donate all of one weekend's fees to help them pay for a prosthetic? No, as unfortunate as it is we just can't do it everytime someone is in need or otherwise we'd have NO funds.

Best of luck.

Thanks everyone for the consideration. I understand about how everyone has their issues with donations or what have you. Im just doing this for a good cause and plan on doing this event every year and making it a SN event next year. Any donations will be greatly appreciated. It does not have to be money...it could be discs, bags, towels. It doesn't matter. We can always raffle things off. As always the SN is always dear to my heart. Please keep my mother and other women struggling from breast cancer in your prayers.

Thanks,

Shipley

Shipley, I hope it doesn't happen to anyone or their family. I hope for nothing but the best for you, your mother and your entire family.

Zinger, buddy this thread was created for opinions and I gave mine.

I would say yes to the 50/50 raffle and yes to most fundraising events, but I would say no to the fees. I think the sn is a series of tournaments for the players leading to a championship. I don't think we should open the door to taking from that. My sister-in-law has breast cancer that has metastasized to her back, and I think it is a great cause and wish you the best in your fundraising efforts.

Girlyboy,

We have already proven that you have no balls!! You aint Nothing but a punk @#$%& sissy! Nor will you ever be anything but!

You have also proven that you are a CHEATER!!

Now you prove that you have no compassion or soul for that matter. Why don't you do the world a favor and drop off the face of the planet! NOONE will miss you or your insensitive, uncourageous way of living!!

At the very least, you can save face by stop posting on this website. Like Terry said, no one cares what you think you heartless LITTLE MAN!

I hate I even read your crap, and wouldn't have if I were logged in. IGNORE!!! LOSER!!

I have no soul or compassion? Coming from a guy who can no longer run an Icebowl because he stole all the money. I believe they call that pot calling the keddle black? Hehehe.

This thread was created for opinons and MYopinion is winning the vote. Glad I am not the only heartless one in SN land.

TB why don't you donate some of your stolen money from the SN cup, your tournaments, and the food bank to the cause? You class act you.

As I have said, it's a real shame for anyone with a terrible disease or cancer affects and my heart goes out to their loves ones but donating the SN fees is not the answer.

The last paragraph in your last post would have been a respectful opinion Dillion.

What an @#$%&! I hope I don't ever see him on the Course. I sure would like to bust him upside the head. Gutless bastard! It is because of people like you that make me say things I would on occasion not say. Sorry for the language.

I have to agree Dillon, I dont think that donating the SN fees is a good idea. My grandmother has lung cancer and I lost a child a year ago. I pray that the ones affected by this will get through this and get better. I think something local would be a great thing to do for them. But if we start giving SN fees out to everyone that has a issue it could be a slippery slope on who to help and who not to help.

Will you run a 50/50 raffle at your event to help?

The pissboy has not a Clue!!! 50/50 is a good start. The SN Series could start a donation to have funds on hand for such a cause to match funds by the players. "?"...is SN a 501c3
Re: Calling all April 27th events and the SN BoD

Simple.
Ask for donations at events.
Ask for donations via the forums.
Have a charity event where the proceeds go towards a cause.
Don't take SN fees and use them for charity.

Don't let this thread turn into 'this persons agenda against this person', these forums already have way too much of that happening....

Shipley what happened to the results for the turkey shoot
Re: Calling all April 27th events and the SN BoD
April 22, 2013 07:45PM
Well I would have to agree with dillon ...I have a type of cancer myself at 36 years of age and would not want any money coming from sn fees...if you do for one you would have lots following ...get local clubs or stores etc. to take donations..you take from players and they will go elsewhere ...
Re: Calling all April 27th events and the SN BoD

I have turned in the Results a long time ago and just recently sent them in again to a slew of Board Members. Somehow the SN fees were sent back to us and resent. Its all up to whoever has the SN funds. Its all out of our hands right now. I was told that they would not be posted until they got the SN Fees. Someone else besides me did the funds. I was told they were sent back in over a month ago, so I honestly could not tell you.

Thanks,

Shipley

I know the proposal failed,but of the 54 people that voted 34 thought we should do something while 20 thought we should do nothing....good luck to those 20 that put a few 100.00 a head of helping people.....and before you go spouting off at the mouth about me putting my money where my mouth is, I already have. Good Luck SN!!!!

Seems like the SN fees could be waived and given as a donation... just saying.

Thanks for all your help with this Keith. It was worth a try. Thanks for all the donations that people from around the community and around the Southern Nationals that have helped out. May God Bless You All.
