Welcome to the Bluebird Series:
It is here; it is time to take off the gloves, blinders and all the other excuses in your bag and get on out here and play.
The Missouri Parks and Recreation Association (MRPA) is the main sponsor of this series. The JC Sharpshooters, The St. Charles Disc Golf Club and The St. Louis Disc Golf Club are volunteering to help run these events, coordinate payouts and insure the courses are in fine condition for this series.
This simply means that your local clubs have a stake in disc golf for both Pros and AMs.
If I can communicate this further, it is a concerted effort by all clubs to bring a competitive atmosphere to a state sponsored event. The turnout here can influence our goal to insure Disc Golf will be a new line item for the 2012-2016 Statewide Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan (SCORP). That is our number one goal. Why? Because items that are related to the SCORP become visible to parks planners and administrators that can compare costs of activities that cost thousands of dollars and have diminishing interests such as basketball and tennis courts or baseball fields/fences and golf courses. The costs of those activities run into the thousands of dollars to initiate and then additional costs to maintain. We are striving to identify and display the minimal costs required to install a quality disc golf course and bring people to their parks when compared to the other activities listed above.
Therefore, I am simply letting you know the future of disc golf is in your hands, Pros you have been asking for a vehicle to develop more pros, well here it is, I am playing Pro, so I won’t mind representing our region. Ams this is your chance to see where you stand vs. the other players in the state.
Pros I am letting you know, 4-6 tourneys, the more of you who play, the more the cash payout will pay out. Ams these are your clubs who are putting this on for you, the price of gas is high, the price of this tourney is low.
So come out tomorrow, registration starts at 8:30 am, Tee off at 10 am
15 dollar buy in
20 bucks Pros per tourney
15 bucks for AMS
10 bucks Recreational
5 bucks for Novices and Juniors
