Make Prairie Center a ten dollar entry fee like Down Under?
« on: November 23, 2009, 05:45:06 PM »
Not sure if it's a good idea but how about making P.C. Saturday the same as Down Under, $10 with $8 going toward payout and $1 ace and $1 for the club.  Any thoughts?...

I, for one, am always willing to pay a little extra for the chances of winning a little extra, it certainly pays for my gas a little better that way.

I'm a fan of $3.00 entry regardless of venue, Dollar Ace, Dollar Club, Dollar Payout, and sidebets on and off card. World Peace Threw Disc Golf, I'm a Dollar Menuaire.

Well, I'll speak for the broke contingent - $5 suits me fine.

What about $5 with $1 to club and $1 Ace instead of $1.50 to club....that would put a little more in the payout and keep the league fees consistant.

what about full payout for $5, which pretty much has to be done for doubles to work, and an optional $5 sidebet for whoever wants to do it? that way if you only want to play for $5 you can, but if you want to do a little more that would work out too.

Ya I am with Andy and Cooper. I think 1.50 is way to much to take out for the club. I would rather do $5 full payout, and maybe add a dollar if someone wants ace fun. Like we do it at Monday Glow. With the amount of guys that show up sometimes, you could win the league and still lose money with what is being taken out.

$1.50 is the standard per player tax. I believe DU only taxes the player $1, so there is a precedent for that in winter club league play.

The deal needs to be either $5 per player with $1 to the club, $1 to the ACE fund and $3 payout, or, $10 per player with $1 to the club, $1 to the ACE fund, and $8 payout.

If the club league ACE fund is being played for, a per player club tax must be imposed in my opinion. Although we pay dues to the club, some revenue stream is still needed to allow for the neccesary funds to faclilitate club financed course upgrades and maintenance.
