I'm still committed to be cheaper, which means smaller player packs, lower payouts, but will be tweaking items to make it sustainable.
Some tournaments don't have a Player Pack because that can be a risky outlay for a non-store promoter like me. I have to order a minimum number of discs. However, if I don't get the players signed up, then I'm left with a bunch of tournament stamped discs that nobody wants (I Like SpIke). Pushing all entry to payouts makes sure I don't get stuck with inventory I can't sell.
With this being said, and I'm sure someone would point it out if I didn't, my first two tournaments next year will have a larger player pack because Innova is the presenting sponsor which is allowing me to provide more product. If you haven't noticed, I like to mix things up a bit. One of the tournaments next year will have the normal golf discs (TeeBird, Destroyer, Gator, etc.) for the Player Pack item, but will also include a second disc - a Zephyr, which is a SuperClass disc. I actually looked into running a SuperClass event, but the PDGA stop sanctioning those a few years back.
Also - the Longview Open, will have a noticeable larger PP than what I can usually provide. It will be an Innova exclusive disc (I don't even know what it is yet), a Performance Tee, baseball cap, mini, and other small items.
