What:  3rd Annual Flippin' Sweet Memorial Disc Golf Tournament for the Prevention of Suicide.  ALL FUNDS GO TO THE JOHNSON COUNTY SUICIDE PREVENTION COALITION
When:  June 18, 2016  8am registration / 9am start
Where:  Thornfield Disc Golf Course, Stilwell, KS
https://www.facebook.com/ThornfieldDiscGolfCourse
Who:  Players who want to see a reduction is teen suicide and to enhance depression awareness.
Why:  Because the disc golf community thinks ahead and does preventative stuff
HOW:  Sign up https://www.discgolfscene.com/tournaments/3rd_Annual_Flippin_Sweet_Memorial_Disc_Golf_Tournament_2016/register


Wow!  Singles open tournament on Thornfield?  Don't see that very often.  This is two 18 hole rounds, one in the morning, one in the afternoon.  Great DD custom tourney disc, disc golf towel, and DOZENS of prizes.  Ace pool, multiple rings of fire.  Cool stuff like two Nut Sac disc golf bags:
 

Royals tickets, T-Bone tickets, Schlitterbahn ( ! ) tickets, custom discs sent to us to help support our fundraising for suicide prevention.  Seriously, merchants have donated so much stuff, there's a good chance you'll win a cool prize.

And, like last year, Miller Coors has stepped up with beer for your players, probably enough for 3-4 beers per player.  The traditional Miller Light / Coors Light will be there, but also Blue Moon, Redd's Apple Ale, Strong & Forge, and other tasty beverages.  We'll be serving treats in the morning, have lots of water and the new Under Armour drink that competes with Gatorade.  We should have a sponsor for koozies by then...so it's pretty much a turn key deal.  $50 gets the rounds, the free disc and towel, lunch, a few beers, and everything in between.  We'll also have Cheatin' Craig doing our DJ work, so you know the tunes will be good. 

Where does the money go and what does it do?  Well, 100% of the proceeds go to the Johnson County Suicide Prevention Coalition, which is a coalition of 170 organizations dedicated to the identification and treatment of suicidal individuals--I bet you don't hear about that very often.  They have two FANTASTIC programs that your player entry fee will pay for.  Let's talk about their ASIST program (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training).  The coalition sponsors trainings of people in the community that encounter a lot of people each day, like teachers, clergy, guidance counselors, police officers, well you get the idea.  This training is for these people to recognize suicidal indicators in people, and guide them voluntarily into counseling and treatment.  It costs over $100/person to do this training, and the coalition recently lost their only funding through a grant.  Help us restore that funding, and get these ASIST trainees scattered throughout the community.  Your participation will actually make a difference.  Will your player fee pay for that high school teacher trained to recognize suicidal tendencies in a student who saves that student's life?

The coalition also does suicide awareness programs across high schools in Johnson County, where there is a disturbing number of teen suicides.  HELP US SLOW OR STOP THIS.

Your money will be well spent.  None of it will be for any salaries or overhead, it will just fund those programs to help stop this problem.

The only thing that makes them pros is the fact they get cash prizes.  To be fair, they can throw very well too.  Set the prize money for 1st Place at $100K in a tourney and you'll change this sport forever and its image forever.  You'll weed out the sketch and players will take their chit much more seriously. 

Keep throwing them $1500 bones and you'll get Spicoli starting on hole 4 along with Slater as Woodson's caddy and a couple of dudes who got the day off from Jiffy Lube to fill the card.

Seeing some drunk hippie barefoot telling his buddies he's going to get sponsored is more of a comedy act than it is a demonstration about the caliber of players it can bring on board.

Bottom line is, a jackass is a jackass and there is the potential for a far better player than anyone mentioned in this post to come forward when someone has the balls to up the ante and make it a payday and not just a bone.

Tournaments / Norman Pro/Am Next weekend
« Last post by Shaunmmartin89 on May 13, 2016, 06:31:40 pm »
hello everyone my name is Shaun Martin #42535. I am going down to Norman, Ok next weekend for the tournament. it is a A-Tier Pro event and a B-Tier Am event. I have reserved a hotel and will be playing adv. Looking to see if anyone wants to ride down and split the costs. There are about 65 spots left, I have played it before and it has been a lot of fun. It would be best if we are in the same division, but I'm sure we can work it out as the courses aren't to far apart. you can email me @ shaunmmartin89@gmail.com or text/call 913-534-1929.

ps I am looking to leave early Friday morning/afternoon so I have time to walk the courses before the tournament on Saturday.

Thanks

Looks like lightning and rain this evening -- hopefully not.

It looks like the storm will push on through by 6:00.  Maybe a slightly delayed start, but get out and battle for a spot on the Best Side.
