I think it's funny that someone is throwing money at one tournament with the hopes that it will truly grow the sport. All it does, IMHO, is just hold a high standard for payout the following year. And as for sustainability... uh huh. I hope it does well and they prove me wrong but this isn't the first time someone attempted it and won't be the last I assume.

I want to know what they are doing with the money? Is it just payout? Welp, that doesn't do anything but make a few people happy. Or are they using half of it to say actually put on a huge event? Players packs have a bunch of discs in it? Wow. And a shirt? Is someone pulling my leg? Again, I hope it does something great for the sport. But I bet it only does great things for one weekend. Please discuss. Argue with me. I would love to hear what other people think.

I don't know what it will do for the sport.  I think that the LDO does a great job of promoting the sport, giving back to the players, to the park, and the community as a whole.  That is my take on the LDO.

Far from a tourney....but we claim to have winners....more of a birthday party for all the Leo's.  Hence the name.  Dick Parker came to the planet a few years after me on the same day....on top of that there are MANY individuals in the disc golf scene that are Leo's.  So we throw a party at Cliff Drive, which also happens to be a Leo yearly.

There are 3 courses in Edmond area just about 20-30 min south. Lake Arcadia has two 18 hole courses. They are shorties. Probably average around 275ft. Or there is Mitch Park in west Edmond. It's a fun course. Mix of wooded and open. They've done a lot of work to it in the last couple years.
