I can answer those questions
We get discs normally when we need them. We give our team manager a call and let him know what we need.
We get performance bonuses depending on the teir of event and placing.
Freebies are things like hats shirts calenders minis ect.

I have high hopes that we can become a huge disc golf town (maybe even the best in Canada).

One of my long term (5-10 years) dreams is to someday host an A-tier and attract some of the top names in the sport. Assuming we had quality courses in the ground, what would we need to do to get pros like you to consider coming up?

I am assuming one thing we would need is some serious added cash. If so, how big a purse would it take for you to even think about coming up to Northern Canada?
Thats awesome to hear!
If you are planning on building a huge event in 5-10 years I would offer get the town to fly a player or players out to the event. That will get the word of mouth going and soon attract more players and it allows you time to build the purse. An A tier event typically is around $1500 for 1st then fades down but I wouldn't put a limit on your tournament. I would also contact the PDGA maybe they can help you out down the road in building a Canadian Championship

If you could have a mold made in a plastic which is not currently in production (like the elusive Glow Champion Rhynos), what would it be?

How long do you spend looking for lost discs? How long if the disc that is new and easy to replace?

It really depends on the disc. I won't look longer than 20 minutes and the reason is because I throw stock plastic so its ask replaceable.

Baseball? Nice. I am a high school baseball player soon to be college baseball player and forehand came natural to me. (i'm a three-quarters slot pitcher so not much difference mechanics wise) I've had great success forehand but my backhand is very limited. Is there anything you can compare backhand to baseball mechanics? Also I am looking to step up to the next level of disc golf. I am 17 and have success in the intermediate division but at what age did you turn the corner and become a great disc golfer? How did you get there? How did you get your first sponsor?

Thanks for coming on here.
