This year the club is scaling back a little bit on the annual Winter Series. This is not because we weren't successful last year, it is simply a matter of manpower and the amount of effort that it takes to coordinate 3 events in the period of a month...it's just a bit much. We are only going to run 2 events this time around. We are hoping that this won't affect the amount of charity that everyone showed us last year. I am sure that the STL Area Food Bank counts on us making our yearly donation more than we can even imagine.
Last year we made the 12th biggest Ice Bowl donation in the country (in conjunction with the JCS Sharpshooters and Hazelwood Parks & Receration Department)...VERY impressive! We raised $3,900 and 1,144 lbs. of non-perishables. Thank you everyone for that awesome success! We would like to try and duplicate or improve upon last year if possible. Since the club is only running 2 events, we will really need to bring in a large number of participants at each event to make it happen. To help facilitate this we are utilizing some of the same incentives from last year and including a couple of new ones.
First off, we will be doing a raffle just like last year. Everyone receives 1 raffle ticket with their entry fee. Additionally, for every non-perishable food item that you bring you will receive a raffle ticket. There is no limit to how many food items you can bring. If you bring 100 cans of food, you will get 100 raffle tickets in return. Another way to get some tickets is to place your drive inside the 30ft. circle on a couple of the shorter holes during the round (remember this from last year?). You can also buy raffle tickets if you would prefer to donate cash to the Food Bank instead - $1/ticket or $5 for 6 tickets. At the conclusion of the JB Ice Bowl event we will hold the raffle. All of the donated prizes will be numerically assigned a winner. You do not have to be present to win - we will hold all prizes for the winners. Speaking of prizes, if you have anything DG related to donate, please bring it to the Holly Daze or either of the Ice Bowl events. All donations are tax deductible - you will receive a receipt from the club (a non-profit organization). The donations are what makes the raffle a success!
Second, we will have a SPECIAL CTP for anyone that participates in both events. This will happen after the round at JB near the Blackhawk Shelter. Everyone that qualifies will get 2 throws at the basket. The top throws will claim the prizes (1 prize per person only). We will work out the details on the prizes ASAP and let everyone know. Rest assured that they will be NICE!
Third, we will also be offering up our normal $5 CTP & 50/50 Package to all club members. This will include the normal 3 X 50/50 holes, 2 X ZANFEL holes, 2 X RCF holes, and should also include some other sponsored CTP surprises!
Here is the flyer with the details...
We will be combining our efforts with the Hazelwood Parks & Recreation Department this year as well. Keep on the lookout for their event on February 2nd. They will be coming up with a flyer for their event in the near future...
If you have any questions, please post them here and we will try to answer them as quickly as possible.
