I have been informed that we can invite up to 2 (two) more teams or individuals who would be willing to fill out a team, to our Traveling Outlaw Disc Golf Championship on September 22 – 23, 2012. This is a 9 person team disc golf event, match golf style, being played at Justin Trails Resort in Wisconsin this year. Each team consist of 1 woman and 8 men seeded in a descending order with the #1 seed being the top player and the #8 seed being usually ranked 875 or lower, that way some disc golfers that could never make the cut for a “top team” can play in a event that they might not get the chance to. A major emphasis is put on winning the party on Saturday night and having fun no matter how your team places.
There will actually be 2 events at once, the Outlaw and the In-law, each one paying almost equal. The Outlaw is teams that finished 1st and 2nd in the regional’s back in the spring, with the In-law being the remaining teams. The cost is usually around $60-65 per person for everything except travel, and food. That breaks down roughly this way:
• $25 entry fee, 1st place takes all the money.
• $8 for disc
• $8 for shirt
• $15 camping for the weekend, but you can stay in the onsite B & B from $115 a night & up.
• $5 for the fireworks
• $2.50 for the hole in one contest
• $$ donation for beer
There can always be extras but we try hard to keep this a low cost event. Justin Trails can provide a breakfast for $3-5 but need to know in advance how much to prepare and that is why that is not included in the price above. The Traveling LAKERS are going to rent a 13 person cargo van and could possibly fit a few in for the ride.
Players will all get a tube of Zanfel Poison Ivy Relief ($42 value), of course shirt and disc, some Bawls samples, 2 (two) pairs of KEENS gift certificates with shipping included will be raffled off, score beads, pencils, shapies, and along with some Organic Wicks and KP’s Beef Jerky & more. All players should also bring 3 discs or disc golf related swag to trade off of the swag table, that way everyone is bringing home some new disc.
This year we will have 1 hole designated as a special “hole in one” hole. If anyone gets a ace on the contest hole they will be awarded $5,000.00! This is the same company that awards cars and such on the PGA.
All interested parties please call my cell phone at 314-606-3475 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. If this perks you interest and you can have fun winning or losing, you just might have what it takes to be the next Traveling Outlaw.
ps. Next year we are looking hard at Dave Mac’s property in Vichy, MO for the event, so you can see that we are definitely a “traveling” event.
pps.Look on facebook for the Traveling Outlaws page for pictures of the shirts and disc designs as well as more information and pictures of the trophy, which is one of the sweetest trophies at night time that you will ever see.
