How much from each entry goes towards the trees?

its not a specific number for each player.  that will depend on the players pack margins this year and the number of ams vs pros.  Last yr. we raised ~$300 with 17 players.  the low turnout was mostly my fault and i am trying to improve on several things this year.

We also used the Lion's Den Open this year as a "course fund improvement" for Cliff Drive, and we will be donating that towards the TLC amount on the year!

I don't know about in the black..... 8), but we had the raffles going on for the GRIP eq bag, and extra's and all that was to go towards the TLC.  It's never a thing to make money......

Probable pin locations for the 2012 TLC:
Round 1:
1w,2w,3w,4r,5r,6w,7b,8b,9w,10w,11b,12w,13b,14b,15w,16r,17w,18r
Round2:
1r,2r,3w,4b,5w,6w,7w,8w,9w,10w,11r,12w,13b,14r,15r,16w,17r,18b

if you're keeping tabs, thats 12 holes moving at lunch.

The weather was crappy and you were going against an event at thornfield. Hardly your fault. If i can help out with anything let me know.

I'm signed up!  Nothin' against ya' Slant, but people need to get over the "Shwag" concept.  I've played "ball golf" tourney's for years, and no one ever had a problem over a trophy.  Just sayin'....bring the money in for da' trees ya'll!!!!  8)

Raising money for local courses and you had to make it a pdga event.   I would play but I don't want to donate to the pdga.  I realize am worlds is in Emporia next year, but every event this year seems to be pdga sanctioned and I have to pay an extra 10 dollars to play. Why don't you just have a course donation ace fund at every tournament in kc and make it a 50/50.

Really?  How about I let you pay for the things I buy then, and you see if you can make money on it!  :P

while i also have my issues with some things the pdga does, in general, i support the structure they are giving the sport.  i can't speak for other TD's in the area as to why they choose to sanction or not sanction (though i suspect most TD's have a strong stance either way).  i personally like having the documented rules in place to lean on instead of using arbitrary rules that i must enforce on the players who are also my friends (i had to stroke jlowe last year  :-\).  i grew up an athlete and this sport fills that void for me.  plus pdga events have the potential to draw more people from out of town. 

just like last year, the ace fund will be 100% if it gets hit.  if no ace is hit, we will do a short ctp for 50/50 with 1/2 going to the tree fund.

can't say for sure but i believe these events were unsanctioned in kc this year:
  andy and deano's bday
  twisted at old pike and ww
  DUI
  eastern front
  SSR
  ddkc traveling one days
  LDO
  RAC
  club championships
  hitting chains for BACA
  Mo PR BlueBird Series
  Afternoon d-lite
  Ace race

You are correct Drew, I was exaggerating.  I don't play any tournaments or leagues anyways.  Good luck and hope your fundraiser goes well.

I'll pay your $10 PDGA fee Sean!  Come on out!  I have paid for a few PDGA fees already this year!

The LDO and GRIP eq are going to be able to donate $223 towards the Tree Fund for Cliff this year, we are already off to a GREAT start for the event!  Now if I can just decipher  :o these pin placements.....someone is obviously not color blind!
