Default Ace Race - Additional Prize packs or additions to the player packs

I am running an ace race and was wondering what people would prefer - I additional prize packs were awarded or if I should add additional items to the player packs?

Thanks

Ian

Is it the Discraft Ace Race? If so, I think they supply the packs and it is what it is. I'm actually looking forward to this year's, just for that weekender bag!

Prizes; the player pack is already nice.
Maybe a prize for the most metal hits for that unlucky guy who doesn't get any to stick.

I voted prize packs. Additional items might get more people to sign up and I'm sure just about anyone who would enter would be stoked to get them, but I don't think it would get anyone on the fence for signing up. More prizes just sounds better and probably has a better chance of getting people on the fence to jump.

I would go with additional prizes. If you don't give them away here, you can hold them for another tournament.

Also, do a side bet. $10 buy ins, and a share of payout for every ace hit. Our ace race has had this the past two years. The first year they did it like this (i like it better), the 2nd year it was overall points won the whole thing (I won that too). I was a bigger fan of the 1st year because it gives everyone a shot of getting some cash.

This.

The Dsicraft players pack is already at the very top end of the scale when comparing prize pack value to entry fee. Adding additional items does not get the bang for the buck since it is already so high.

However, one thing about Discraft Ace races is the all or none deal. By having additional prizes for other things, you can keep more people interested in the competition.

Add prizes, definitely. We give away a portable basket every year, had Burger King donate 18 CTPs for menu items one year, have had lots of discs donated. When in doubt, consult the DGCR forums! A lot of us have run Ace Races and can give pointers on what works and doesn't.

Thanks for all of the responses. The feedback has been great. This is the first Tourney that I have ever run.

Here is the link for it.

If anyone has any other ideas I would greatly appreciate them.

BTW If anyone has anything lying around and that they would like to donate. All proceeds are being donated to the MS Society.

Thanks in advance for more feedback.

Ian

Fun times, either way. For me, I'd rather have more in the pack. I know I'm not gonna win, so I wanna take home the loot! Haha. Hey Smokin' Joe, where'd you get info on the Discraft Ace Race this year? I didn't see it on the website.
