The Elvis Festival is giving away four automobiles during the weekend. The Fling with the King tournament will have two of these tickets as CTP's during Saturday's rounds. Win one of these CTPs and you may just pull into Sundays round behind the wheel of a new car! All the car give-away details are located at this link: http://www.tupeloelvisfestival.com/winacar.cfm

How about prizes and tournament give-aways? We'll have them too! Three Trapper baskets from Innova will be available, many (I stress many) Star plastic CTPs, plus other sponsor merchandise CTPs.

How about Custom stuff?
75 Elvis Rocs, 100 Elvis minis, 25 INNcolor Valykries, and 25 INNcolor Sidewinders. We'll also have a limited number of "Fling with the King" t-shirts available. Some of the customs items will be used in award packages and some for sale. As you can see, quanities are limited!

What about awards?
Well have three special awards for overall best Men, Women, and Junior divisions. Will an Am bagger step up and take one of these home from the Pros? A sample is posted here:

Its a full sized, hand-made, stoneware pottery disc that will be perfect for the winner's wall. This is our inagural Elvis tournament and we hope these special prizes will be coveted items for years to come as this tournament grows in size. Additionally, each of these winners will have an engraved brick placed around our "Ring of Fire" hole #23 to commemerate their accomplishment for all eternity!

Additionally, we will have 5-1/2 pottery awards similar to the above for all division winners. Also, a minimum of 100% pay-out is guaranteed!

Whats the course like?
23 holes open and wooded with some elevation changes ... just across the street from Elvis' birthplace. Basically, we're in Elvis' childhood playground! Well change basket placements after Saturdays round to the long tees. It'll be a challenge for all!

Where to stay?
