I am wanting to hold a Charity tournament at Wilbur Young Disc Golf Course. I would like to have it around the first of May 2011. This would hopefully be a tier C sanctioned event. I would welcome any advice, help or comments.

If this is your first event, learning by helping with other tournaments is a good place to start. Also, to run a PDGA event, you'll need to become a PDGA Certified Official. This test costs around $10, but is free to KCFDC members.

There are resources about how to run events at PDGA.com as well. I think I have a document somewhere that I authored several years ago. I'll see if I can find it. There are many experienced TDs here in KC, who will be glad to give you assists as you move forward.

a Charity PDGA tournament?   Something about that doesn't seem to make sense.  Maybe I'm wrong.   Why if a charity event would you want to also give money to the PDGA?

I've sent a PM regarding this event.  Hopefully some more information will give us a clearer picture of what exactly you're looking for.

Enthusiasm is great, but May is a busy month with many events already planned.  Also you would want to gain approval from the KCFDC Board to ensure its success, as well as utilize its partnerships with the Blue Springs P&R.

I am sure that Timko will give you some great advice on how to get this going!

a Charity PDGA tournament?   Something about that doesn't seem to make sense.  Maybe I'm wrong.   Why if a charity event would you want to also give money to the PDGA?


An event that seeks sanctioning under the  PDGA Competition Endowment Program does this:
 
• $2 PDGA per player fee is donated to the event charity and must be matched by the event
• In addition to the matched $2 PDGA per player fee, a min. of 25% of the net entry fees must
also be donated to event charity.
 
Example: (Based on $20 Gross Entry Fee)
 
$20 Gross Entry Fee
   -2 PDGA Per Player Fee
   -2 Player Fee Match   
$16 Net Entry
   -4 25% of Net Entry Fee
$12 Toward Payout
$  8 Charity Donation Per Player
 
• $10 non-current member fee is waived or may be charged by the TD and donated to the
event charity along with the $2 PDGA per Player fee (matched by event) and 25% of net
entry fees.

In a Charity event does the PDGA require payout to players or can there just be trophies and player packages?

There are trophy only events, you must advertise them as such as well.  Informing the participants the day of is unacceptable, but making that knowledge known the entire time is an option that is being used by many organizations and clubs to keep costs low.

Someone brought up the question whether a 2-round C-tier could be sanctioned where the first round was on a weekday evening with the second round the next evening? I checked and the answer is "Yes."

I think this opens up a new set of options for PDGA sanctioned events at the local level. The weekend calendar is getting so crowded in some locations that TDs are running out of good weekend dates. In addition, we all know lots of players who find it much easier to find time to play on weekday evenings than weekends due to jobs or family obligations. Just tossing the idea out there as you are planning your events for next year.

That would be kind of fun to play a two evening event! Daylight would probably limit it to June-Aug?
This even opens the possibility of a two night glow event?

Unfortunately it wouldnt be able to be a PDGA event if it was glow, since they don't allow you to play with lights on your discs, or alter your disc at all. But it would be pretty cool to do a glow tournament that wasn't pdga but just set up like one.

Because there are so many PDGA events already to work on those hallowed ratings, I'm perplexed as to why someone would want to sanction events during weekdays (or nights) when we have so much non-sanctioned activity already. However, my best guess would be that the PDGA would probably OK an X-Tier at night, allowing the use of lights.
