Juliana Korver Presents: La Vie en Rose

Juliana Korver Presents: La Vie en Rose
September 24, 2008 08:38AM
On behalf of Juliana Korver, I am honored to announce her inaugural ladies-only disc golf event: Juliana Korver Presents La Vie en Rose.


This unique event will take place February 14-15, 2009
at The Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park in Live Oak, FL.

In Juliana’s words:

"Are you curious why this disc golf adventure has the name that it does? Literally La Vie en Rose translates to “the life in rose”. The English equivalent to this is “life through rose-tinted glasses” or even “life is rosy”.

If someone looks at something through rose-tinted glasses, they see only the pleasant parts of it. It is a way of life. It is an attitude that I aspire to maintain.

La Vie en Rose is a disc golf event that intends to combine many of the pleasant tournament aspects that we have experienced over the years as well as present new ones that will create a wonderful, memorable and rosy weekend.

This event is about warm fuzzies, feeling good and friendship. I hope that you all can experience the weekend through rose-tinted glasses and perhaps even take the attitude home with you to help you appreciate all that is good in life.

This will truly be a unique weekend that I hope and expect you will love."

Juliana has made the initial event announcement in person at the U.S. Women’s Disc Golf Championships and on the PDGA discussion board. For lots more information and to post your support, please visit this discussion thread, which will provide a link to the official tournament website:

[www.pdga.com]

Shawn Harrigan and I are the Co-TD’s for this event. We’d love to have your input, assistance, and sponsorship. Please e-mail mritner@yahoo.com if you are inclined to help Florida welcome the ladies of disc golf to a wonderful weekend of competition and comradery.

Yours In Flight,
Mark “Denny” Ritner

Hey all!

Registration is off to a good start, with some very talented ladies on the list already. I'll be selling fundraising discs outside the country store at the Bear Creek Music Festival next weekend. Stop by and say "hey" if you're at the festival.

Registered as of today: (all pro women, so far)

Juliana Korver - Bowling Green, KY
Brandi Laudermilch - Spring Hill, FL
Addie Isbell - Modoc, SC
Angela Tschiggfrie - Iowa
Val Jenkins - Ohio
Pam Reineke - Orlando, FL
Sandy Gast - Orlando, FL
Sarah Stanhope - Greenville, SC
Pro Master Women

p.s. Just a reminder, this event has been created to appeal to women of all skill levels. Advanced and Intermediate divisions will be playing from the red tees and we'll have a temporary set of "green" teees for the recreational players. The players package is shaping up sweet already and entry fees, particularly for recreational players, are low.

More will be revealed . . .

Happy Turkey Day!!!

Just wanted to post a few updates to goings-on with La Vie en Rose. First of all we're off to a very nice start to our fundraising. We will be adding $1,500 cash to the pro purses. We'll also be adding extra merch to the am purses. The players packages are very, very nice. Without giving away all our secrets, we will let it be known that the retail value will be about $100.

We're very excited to see our intial pro registrants:

Juliana Korver - Bowling Green, KY
Brandi Laudermilch - Spring Hill, FL
Addie Isbell - Modoc, SC
Angela Tschiggfrie - Iowa
Val Jenkins - Ohio
Pam Reineke - Orlando, FL
Sandy Gast - Orlando, FL
Sarah Stanhope - Greenville, SC

We want to emphasize that this event is for women of ALL SKILL LEVELS. While the pro open women will be playing the tough blue tees, the pro masters, advanced, and intermediate will play from the red tees and the rec players will play from a temporary set of green tees. All ladies will have a great time.

Paid entries will include two nights of primitive camping, two nights of live music, a hog-roast lunch on Saturday (with a veggie option), a bonfire, a night-lit event, one free toss at the "Ace for the Cure" fundraiser and lots of fun comradery.

I spoke with many ladies last weekend at the Players Cup, some of which are registered and some of which are on the fence. I'd like to strongly encourage all that are on the fence to buy themselves a holiday gift or ask a loved one to pony up to start 2009 off right. Guys out there that voice support for getting more women in the game, here's an opportunity for y'all to join together and sponsor a local gal or two to make the trip.

There are many reasons why disc golfing women will not want to miss this event, including:

1) It will be a blast.
2) The park is beautiful.
3) It'll be sunny and in the 70's during the day.
4) You'll meet other disc golf women from around the country
5) You'll get to meet Juliana, Val Jenkins, Angela Tschiggfrie, and other wonderful professionals.
6) You'll get to say years from now that you were at the first La Vie en Rose.
7) You'll have the red carpet rolled out for you, unlike any other event.
8) You'll contribute to and draw from the energy of a group of women dedicated to growing the sport and making it great.
9) You'll have the chance to earn a spot in the pro-am elimination shootout.
10) You'll have a chance to win a paid entry to the 2009 Southern Nationals Finals.
11) You'll earn A-tier PDGA points.

We are working on arranging airport rides and helping with other accomodations. If you are considering attending this event and have any questions, please send me an email:mritner@yahoo.com

The team here at waydowndisc.com wishes you all Happy Holidays!!!

As 2009 approaches, we’re working hard preparing for the inaugural La Vie en Rose women-only tournament hosted by Juliana Korver. We’ve been pleased with the initial support from many sponsors. We’re also very happy to have 27 players registered thus far including multiple world and national champions. These ladies will be travelling to Florida from Georgia, Kentucky, Texas, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Iowa, Ohio, and California.

I’d like to let all disc golf businesses, clubs, and individuals that are interested in supporting the women of disc golf and the future of our sport that we have several opportunities available to do so. We have a few sweet Inncolor Star Ontario Rocs remaining, signed Champion Plastic discs, and annual tee sign sponsorships. Details on all can be viewed: [julianakorver.net] We’ve sold 23 tee sign sponsorships thus far and have 11 remaining.

Also, boyfriends, husbands, and clubs are strongly encouraged to sponsor entry into the event for their local ladies.

How many times have y’all heard “we need more women in this sport”? The time is now for all men that are interested in doing their part to help give the ladies a very special weekend to step up and pledge their support. Please take a look at: [julianakorver.net] and pick an option of support that works for you.

I’d love to hear your feedback and answer questions at any time.

Thanks in advance for your support,

We’ll be pruning, weed whipping, raking, etc. Please bring gloves and any appropriate tools you may have.

Even though my name was not on the "calling all players" list, I doubt I will be in attendance, finances are just too tight right now. I wish I could attend though. I told Joe the Pro that was all I wanted for my 25th wedding anniversary but money dictates otherwise. Everyone have a great time for me.
