SPRING FEVER FLING - PDGA B Tier
« on: April 08, 2014, 01:59:21 PM »

Spring is here and it's time to kick off one of Omaha Nebraska's most historic disc golf events! 28 years, thousands of players, and tens of thousands of man hours have made this event a permanent mark on the calendars of countless disc golfers across the midwest. As always The Fling will be held at a temporary course hand picking the best land Omaha has to offer. In the next few weeks our team will be aggressively pursuing more added cash and unique items for am player packs. So far we have $1500 added. Stay tuned for regular updates.

I would love to see us all work better as a collective energy towards having a environment where we aren't taking possible players from the other's event.  I know it is tough, but one can dream about it can't we?

Collectively, I think that the following areas should be working together:
KC:
Des Moines
Columbia
Omaha
Topeka


Omaha:
KC
Des Moines
Topeka

Des Moines:
KC
Omaha
QC

I think that Des Moines is better positioned than the rest of us, because the IowaDG.com does a great job of keeping everyone on the collective same page in regards to scheduling.  At least from my own outside personal opinion.  I think that collectively we all as area groups should work hard to engage earlier in the season to create a good option of playing to make it work well for us all and the players.

I also kind of mean to look at the options mentioned and use that as a circle to encompass the area events inside of the circle so to speak.  I think/feel that anything within 200 miles we should be looking at in terms of how to improve the experience for the player and entice the event to be bigger and therefore more beneficial to the communities that host the event.  These three events are not going to see the activity that they should because the field is diluted.  That hurts everyone.  That makes me sad.

Jack I'm with ya my man! Lets figure out a coop and start having pre meetings for next year where we all embrace each others events! This will create better results for everyone with each event promoting the next and giving an opportunity to allow the players to attend all (much like the power of a back to back event). I think its a brilliant idea actually. We can really leverage some buzz stringing together multiple events. This is one of the problems with the dg event model as a whole IMO. Seriously, together we have mucho power. We can even solicit regional sponsors vs local, together and actually have some legit numbers to give them covering a larger geographical market. This allows for a much larger pool of sponsor potential. Please keep me in the loop on this and I think you should facilitate Jack? I'm more then willing to put some work into this idea. Call anytime, you got my number.

PS I'm even willing to give this process an official name and brand it for others around the country FYI. Website for TDs to sign up and get some PDGA backing on it. Think about it...

I had sent out a team event about a year or two ago and was hopeful that we could all talk during that event as well...:-(

But I think that we can all work towards it, I have a few people on board now.  We can make it work if we try hard and help each other on it!

I think the key is to clearly communicate the benefits of such a coop. The presentation is important, and also my specialty ; ]. Seriously, lets talk soon...
