It was a 169 Star Destroyer. It was my first that I didn't get to see hit the chains, oh well, it was also the first time I have been paid for one.

all that BS needs to stop on shirts, logos, flyers for money events. Do you really want that out there. Come on folks, people bit$% and complain about sponsorship, yet we allow that stuff to be on published materials. Are you going to see players last week at the Masters with gear like that. Well some of you might say, "i do not want those stuff folks playing our game," well that is to bad becuase of the abundance of courses. Hmm ,i wonder why ball golf has large purses. Disc golf has small purses with limited sponsorship. Maybe folks do not want to associate their good names with illegal drugs. There is time and a place for everything and i dont want to rain on anyones parade, but seriously. i think most folks understand that, but why go out of your way and be blatant and in your face? I see this like all the students that i work with that act up all the time for attention. All the other students know that they are doing it for attention. Okay, cool dude, you like to smoke. The whole pot thing over and over and over just reeks of middle school behavior. All the doctors, lawyers and professional folks that partake are not going around wearing their " i smoke pot badge".
I had highly anticipated a possible Tournament shirt for the tournament. It didn't happen. Sorry didn't give myself enough time.
I did lower the entry from past years. I was willing to split divisions if there were enough people. There just simply was not enough people for a lower division. Sorry. Again I could have put you with the Juniors but they were willing to play up, so I didn't think there was a problem here. You should never expect anything when you go to a tournament. These responses to your question have been on point. Not ridiculous. The fact that you are asking for more is the main reason why people don't want to run tournaments. Everyone has an opinion but no one has actions. No one step up and does things except for a few people. Then they are criticized for trying to put something together.
And this notion that you pay $25 dollars for a PRIVILEGE is just absurd. AGAIN you were 1 stroke away from the guy who cashed. You had a chance in that division. You just blew it. Sorry to be so harsh but dude. You were in it and you lost. You were there and you blew up the 2nd round. I can't just put you with people with no arms because you want to win or get something for showing up.
Here .. This is probably more your speed:
The Kansas City Disc Golf Day!
It's an all day event that doesn't calculate your score, cost $15 and you get a tshirt or a disc. I think these types of things are more up your alley.
or you could just take that as motivation to improve your game, so next time you can compete.
it's getting to the point that everyone wants a prize or trophy just for showing up.
AMs got paid out in merchindise. All the cash you paid in went back to your division ONLY and was paid out in plastic. So you are not paying 25 dollars for a scorecard. But as an AM you can not win cash. Just merchindise. Which John from DGW brought a couple boxes worth and then the winners could pick from there and exchange what they got for equal value at disc golf world.
$25 dollars is a pretty cheap amount for a tournament. When I took this over 2 years ago it was $30 for AMs. I dropped it for that reason.
$25 is super cheap, if you expect those things, you should plan on paying closer to $50/event
