Pre-registration is really picking up. We are nearing 100.

As a reminder, no money comes out of the AM entry fee to pay for the player's pack. All of that money goes straight to payout.

Thanks Dana - just to clarify on the added cash: all of that goes straight to payout. We have raised more than $25,000 for this event so the added cash is straight up added cash. The rest of the money we raised pays for the tournament expenses, live broadcast, the monster player's pack, player's party, ice cream social, etc. $12,000 straight to the pro purse and no money will come out of entry fees except for the PDGA fee. We are covering all expenses (sanctioning, insurance, food, etc etc etc) with no money coming out of anyone's entry fees.

Sounds pretty awesome. I always enjoy coming into an event knowing what to expect from the added cash and if it is really added cash to the purse or just "added cash" that goes into running the event.

Ledgestone Insurance has also committed to having at least a $20,000 purse this year if we get at least 72 pro players to sign up. Ledgestone Insurance will make up the difference if we get to at least that amount. This could mean another $1000 of added cash to the pro field as we really want to see a big purse this year!

We are currently at 109 registrations and counting. We have also added the following sponsors since our original post: Springfield Electric, BN Disc Golf Club, Just Kidz Dentistry, Aces and Chains Disc Golf, Culver's of Morton and Brienzo's Wood Fired Pizza.

We do have a few more spots left in the FlyMart. Terry Miller aka The Disc Golf Guy will also be at the FlyMart and he will be doing live broadcast coverage of our event all weekend.

Don't miss one of the premier events in the Midwest!

124 registrations and counting - thanks to CGN Global Consulting for coming on as a sponsor at all four courses as well.

Thanks to Deuce Squad for joining in on the FlyMart! Paul Ulibarri will be at the Deuce Squad table as well.
