I know, but I want to pay our entries. We're looking to better the -15 we shot the first round....

 I had money for Jeff or Sean but they didn't show on sunday for the final round.....

Your flyer reads" Cash and Merchandise Prizes for all Divisions."

how is it decided who plays where? if both advanced masters and pro masters are playing for cash, what are the criteria to determine who is eligible for each division? as you say, it's not PDGA, so those guidelines don't apply.

I'm not sure they do it in all honesty......

 I know last year the first round we shot -15, Gary and Bruce shot -15 as well, but for some reason we ended up on completely different cards, didn't make much sense as I don't think any other teams shot anywhere close to that.

 I think this is a tournament that's more about fun, on a short course on the longest day ( or as close to that day as possible) of the year, and less about competition. I know I had a blast the previous 2 years and plan on doing so again this year. Maybe even get an ace......

You should play where you will have the most fun.  This is the first year for masters and the previous three years the Open division has been won by masters aged players.

That said, TD discretion will be in effect and 30year old open players trying to play adv. masters will be placed in the proper Div.

If someone is coming here to win rent money, they may want to stay away.  We pay out to the event - Food, beverages, Player packs, DJ, Raffle and CTP Prizes. In case the previous events were not clear enough - this is a party disguised as a DG tournament.

The big money will be the ace fund and that will be open to anyone.
