The 7th Annual St. Louis Open - May 5th & 6th, 2012

Postby discdoh on Mon Mar 05, 2012 8:42 pm

Here it is! Everything has been finalized on the flyer, so it is now ready for public consumption.

There are a couple of noteworthy items for this years STLO -

1) The Non Stop Disc Golf Tour will be attending this years event! This means that the 4-Man RV Entourage of Nikko Locastro, Dave Feldberg, Will Schusterick, and Cale Leiviska will be playing this year. Want to talk about stepping up the competition...Nikko will definitely have his hands full this year if he wants to pull off another repeat! This should also bring in a ton of talent from all over the nation and possibly even the world. The world's best like playing with the world's best and this years STLO certainly won't disappoint! If you don't plan on participating in the competition this year (even though you know you should), come on out and watch some of the world's best perform their craft like you have never seen before.

2) The Non Stop Disc Golf Tour, with the support of our club, will be putting on a FREE NSDG CLINIC for everybody that registers for the STLO. Non-competitors will be allowed to participate for a nominal fee/donation. This will happen on Saturday during the Player's Party. Dave Feldberg, Nikko Locastro, Will Schusterick, and Cale Leiviska will hold a group clinic for everyone that will cover some of the most important aspects of disc golf form, execution, and mental preparedness. After Dave provides some initial instruction, everyone will be broken up into 3 skill groups. Nikko, Will, and Cale will work with each group from there, providing instruction on some specific skills that should help improve your overall game. What could be better than learning from the best in the world in person?! How cool is that?!

3) Lars (you know him and love him) from LSDiscs will be running a special mini event at Bridgeton DGC on Friday afternoon. What course at Bridgeton, you ask? The new one that is currently waiting to be installed in the next month or so! This 1-Round event will be the inaugural competetive event at this Gold Level course. Even if, for some horrible reason, you can't play in the big event, the mini event might be right up your alley. Everyone is invited to participate and play what promises to be a truly epic course. More details will follow as the date draws near. Stay tuned! The timetable for Bridgeton has been pushed back a month or 2, so the Friday LSDiscs 1-Round Mini Event will be held at Endicott. Please rest assured that Bridgeton is well on its way to becoming a reality VERY soon. For those of you coming in from out of town, you will just have to make another visit later this summer to check it out! It will probably also make the list of courses for next year's STLO in some capacity, so you will have that too.

4) Friday night brings another chance to experience "The Cave" at Crystal City Underground DGC. We haven't hammered out any of the details yet, but I am sure the Jefferson County Sharpshooters won't disappoint. If you haven't had a chance to check this place out, words can do it no justice...you will just have to go check it out for yourself! With the potential for more than 200 people showing up, this could turn out to be an awesome pre-tourney party!

I could go on and on, but I have already been too long winded. Check out the flyers and keep returning for more updates. Most importantly, get yourself pre-registered ASAP. You won't want to miss this one!

Here is a direct link to the ProShop...

http://stlouisdiscgolfclub.com/proshop/

At our Board of Directors meeting last night we decided to kick-off a Tee Sponsor program. In the past, the cost of Tee Sponsorship was a little cost prohibitive for individuals to consider becoming involved. It was mainly aimed at businesses that could afford the $100. This program was mildly successful in that it certainly helped cover some of the costs associated with the Added Cash that is necessary to run a PDGA A-Tier, but the amount of participation always seemed a bit low. This year we have decided to try and get you, the actual golfer, involved. For $20, you will get to pick your hole of choice at Jefferson Barracks, Endicott, Sioux Passage, or Rock Spring and display your graphics of choice (within reason, of course) on a 8.5" x 11" laminated sign that will be stapled to the tee sign post. You will also receive an additional copy of this sign that you can use for whatever purpose you see fit...a Tee Sponsor sign always looks nice displayed next to your massive collection of plaques/trophies or attached to the front of your refrigerator. An additional benefit of becoming a sponsor is that it GUARANTEES that you will step up on that particular teepad with an overwhelming sense of pride and confidence. Can you say birdie?

You can pay for your sponsorship while signing up for the tournament in the ProShop. If you are not going to play in the tournament, but would still like to sponsor a hole, you can - 1) Make a check payable to The River City Flyers and send it to: Dave West, 12 Walnut Park Ct., Saint Peters, MO 63376. 2) Send me an e-mail or PM me and we can get you set up with our PayPal. 3) Meet up with one of the Course Captains and pay them in person. Once we get your payment figured out, we will need your logo ASAP. If you don't have a logo, you can also just have your name displayed (I'll dress it up for you) or you can submit a catch phrase or something similar. Have fun with it!

Here is a example of a BLANK Tee Sponsor sign...

Here is the list of Holes available...

Hole availability is on a first come, first served basis.

Or bridgeton skins sell raffle tickets to
play w the pros. That should round up enough money for a handful of skin holes. Just an idea :geek:

The Hole Sponsorship add-on is now available when you register for the St. Louis Open @ the online ProShop...check it out:

St. Louis Open Pre-Registration

As Doh says above, if there are those who wish to sponsor a hole/tee but do not plan on playing the event, let us know and we can make sure to set you up right!

thanks

Now that the March C-Tiers are in the books, we are going to start hammering away at the details for the STLO. As more details become available, I will do my best to transmit them via this forum ASAP.

First off, we are starting to figure out the AM player's packs. As usual, the value of the player's pack will be incredible:

- There will be plastic (premium of course) from Discraft, Innova, Gateway, and possibly another manufacturer.

- There will be a tournament stamp T-Shirt courtesy of Johnny Mac's. In addition to the cotton T-Shirts that you will receive in the player's pack, we will also have a supply of tournament stamp Dri-Fit apparel available at $1-$2 over cost to all players. This will include solid colors, 2-tone colors, collared polos, some women's fit apparel, and maybe some other surprises. The supplies will be limited, but I would imagine that if we limit everyone to 1 piece of clothing right off the bat, everyone should be able to pick something out.

- There will also be a bunch of swag. We are still working on the swag details, but you can rest assured that there will be some fun stuff in there that you will certainly get some use out of. I have attached a picture of the first item to be verified...

All of the Open players will be receiving a player's pack as well. The details are still being figured out, but it should be pretty similar to last year - a disc of choice and some cool swag items would probably be a good guess. It won't be nearly as sweet as the AM packages, but heh, at how many A-Tiers do the Open players even get anything? You usually have to go to an NT or Major to see any kick-backs, and those tourneys certainly don't cost $90...

As usual, get pre-registered ASAP. The March C-Tiers filled up and I would expect the same for the STLO, in particular the AM Pools.
