That's cool. I just played Texas States and they had lots of payout AND trophies. I think trophies are catching on, they just don't do it for the small C-tiers they run in Houston yet - which I guess is understandable considering the size of the event.

That's because Scott Reek is the man!

Tourney i was in this weekend (and finished DFL, damnit) ...had medals for the winners, in addition to plastic/cash depending on division. Nothing big, but still a nice reminder of what you won...

Wisconsin has always given out trophies of some sort; usually only for first though; sometimes a little further down. I am amazed that there are evidently places that don't. I assumed that was a given. They're not always fancy, state tour events use to award a black disc with appropriate stamp; for many years. A coveted black disc was valued enough that if you could get one on the "black market" to hang on your wall collection; it was a coup to do so...
But, many tournaments gave out quite interesting trophies of all types; and I'm not speaking of anything purchased at a trophy store. They would almost always be something hand made and disc golf related.

I wish it were that way down here! for the two wins I have, I just used some of my payout money to pick out a trophy disc that I plan to hang on the wall.

Trophies for 1st, in addition to payouts, are given in some tournaments around here, but probably a minority of them. I rather like a custom-stamped 1st place disc; you can hang it on your wall, or throw it, depending on your feelings on trophies.

At Stoney Hill we give trophies in addition to payouts at one of our two sanctioned events. The other is a charity fundraiser, so on a tighter budget.

Also depending on the disc. I won a trophy Buzzz at a tournament last year but I only throw Rocs.

True. But you have the option to throw it or hang it up. Any other trophy doesn't give you that option. Personally, I've thrown all the trophy discs I've received---some made it in my bag, some just occasionally. My only concession is that I'm reluctant to throw them where I may lose them.

I hate players packs. It seems like they use them as an excuse to not have good payouts. Nobody ever uses the **** they get in players packs, how bout we get rid of them and use all that wasted moeny for payouts? Also, if are doing players packs for tourneys, why must you always pretend that they are worth much more than they actually are? I'm looking at dynamic discs claiming their player packs were worth over $175... bull ****ing ****. I could buy all that **** and put it together myself for $100, i still wouldn't use any of that **** though.
