Family of Piggies

Here is a current pic of my Pro Pig collection. Discs in all rows listed from top to bottom. If anyone is looking to get rid of any Pro Pigs, please let me know. I will always be looking for more until Innova produces a Champ and/or CFR version.

Row 1.
Orange and White (ghost/worn off stamp) Pigs. Currently in the bag....been there forever.

White Pigs with purple stamps.

Row 2.
2 First Run Pigs.

Pig w/ Gold stamp.

Wildcat Springs Tourney Stamp from '08....maybe not a FR, but certainly a very early run.

Row 3.
3 Pigs w/ black stamps.

Put me down for 5 champ pigs and I will email Innova as well. Just jumped on the Pro Pig bandwagon and would love a premium Pig.

Any more word on these being ran yet?

I have not heard anything. New013 had been taking the lead on contacting Innova for updates on this.

Not sure if he is still involved or not.

I know the effort on this has been discouraging but don't give up yet. Our current position is simple, Innova wants more requests. I don't think the fact that there are still glow gators in the factory store is helping our cause much. They started selling hot but apparently the demand has died off.

My new plan of action is this petition. I believe if we can get 1,000 signatures we can convince Innova to produce at least one small run of Champion Pigs.

http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/champpigsnow/

Post this on your facebook, on local dg groups, anywhere and everywhere you think you can get some support. I believe that if we can get the word out beyond the DGCR crowd there will be enough demand to get a run produced. It might also be helpful to add in some comments about why you want a champ pig along with your signature.

Thanks everyone. Let's get these Champ Pigs in our hands and on the course!!!

Very good, I forgot to post it on my local boards and just did so. Hopefully the signatures will come rolling in and hopefully more people that requested will come on here and sign it as well. If not I'll start messaging everybody one by one to let them know.

Again, there's now a petition to help get this done. Please share it on other social network sites to get the ball rolling. Thanks.

I called Innova today (Sam, West Coast Sales) and told Sam the world has gone Pig crazy. I told him that Pro Pigs are selling for $ 40+ new, and $ 30+ used, as there is great fanfare for the old Pro plastic and the Pig, and that Pig searchers are ecstatic over the idea of a Champ Pig run. He ran thru the standard stuff, they might add it to the CFR program, but that means the stamp has to have the event details on it, or if they add it to the Factory Store, production stamps could be used. So he seemed opened to the idea, but did say he needed to talk with the powers that be. After talking to him, it seemed a lower hurdle to request a CFR run, whereas the idea of a general run of Champ Pigs needs more convincing as to the overall sales potential. So we may want to consider a collective CFR run that serves as a fundraiser for some new course, or course improvement, and then angle for some artwork that leverages a traditional stamp with some small type about the fund raising event. When its a CFR, there is no question as to the sale potential as we simply order X number of discs and they are delivered, but the problem would be in re-shipping to everybody and collecting the cash, etc. So I figure we either push to get some general list that is big enough to entice them to do a run for the factory store or we get together and push for the CFR run.

Let's just stop buying anything from innova until they give in and give us some champ piggys. When the sales drop and they know why, it shouldn't be a hurdle anymore.

Had to go back a few pages on this thread, but here is the latest list....I would be more than happy to help "re-ship" if needed.
