PDGA list has been updated again:

http://www.pdga.com/tour/event/17103

Keep in mind that we only have 72 spots available between FPO and MPO and we do expect that portion to fill up. At this point in time we have 58 spots available between these two divisions.

As a reminder, if you recruit a hole sponsor for our tournament you will get a free entry into the event! So if your company or a company you know wants to be a sponsor let me know! The sponsor does need to be a new sponsor to our event. We have many different packages available.

Also, we do still have a few spots left for the FlyMart. We also have special FlyMart packages that include hole sponsorship and free entry into the tournament. Here are the current vendors that will be at our FlyMart: Faith Caddie, Plastic Addicts, Paragon, Peoria Frisbee Club and LS Discs.

For information on any of the above please email me at nate@ledgestonegrp.com

We'd like to thank Aces and Chains and Culvers of Morton for coming on board as sponsors. We have sponsorships still available so email nate@ledgestonegrp.com if you are interested. We also have sponsorships available that you can combine with a FlyMart package or free entry package.

The pre-registration list has been updated again and we are approaching 60 registrations:

http://www.pdga.com/tour/event/17103

More sponsors come in everyday and more players sign up! With $12,000 added cash and one of the biggest players packs of the year (with no money coming out of the entry fee to pay for the player's pack) this is going to fill up.

Brienzo's Wood Fired Pizza has come on board as a hole sponsor for the event and they will also be serving food and drinks at Northwoods Park in Morton as our Food Vendor on Saturday and Sunday.

Also, I wanted to post our potential MPO payout assuming 50 players in that division. This is only a preliminary idea of the payout but should give everyone an idea of what we are looking at:

1 $3,000
2 $2,000
3 $1,300
4 $1,150
5 $1,000
6 $800
7 $650
8 $600
9 $550
10 $510
11 $470
12 $430
13 $400
14 $370
15 $340
16 $310
17 $270
18 $230
19 $200
20 $170
21 $145
22 $140
23 $135

As you can see, this tournament will continue to offer one of the highest first place prizes in the entire country. The stakes are high! Get signed up! We are approaching 70 registrations and only have 45 spots left in Group 1, which includes MPO, FPO and MPM.

Ledgestone Insurance has also committed to having at least a $20,000 purse this year if we get at least 72 pro players to sign up. Ledgestone Insurance will make up the difference if we get to at least that amount. This could mean another $1000 of added cash to the pro field as we really want to see a big purse this year!

We are currently at 109 registrations and counting. We have also added the following sponsors since our original post: Springfield Electric, BN Disc Golf Club, Just Kidz Dentistry, Aces and Chains Disc Golf, Culver's of Morton and Brienzo's Wood Fired Pizza.

We do have a few more spots left in the FlyMart. Terry Miller aka The Disc Golf Guy will also be at the FlyMart and he will be doing live broadcast coverage of our event all weekend.

Don't miss one of the premier events in the Midwest!

For those of you that did not attend, this was a very good tournament. There are always some grips that you hear, but overall it seemed that most people are were very happy. I know they had a lot of Pro money, but the Ams were taken care of very well also. Especially with the players pack that included 5 discs, tshirt, hat, towel and others things plus they paid out top ~70% of the Advanced field (with last payout getting about 1/2 their tourney payment ~$30). I would highly recommend people attending in the future.
