Default Do A Tier Pros get player packs?

I'm just wondering if A tier events with pros get a players pack or not. Obviously it's not a question I had since I'm not close to a pro.

Thanks

They can opt out of them too if the TD offers them to the A tier pro, some do opt out of the players pack if they are sponsored by specific brands. I know in my state a guy or two came to play the B tier South Dakota State Disc golf Championship in 2007 ad 2007=8 to have a chance to play the USDGC by winning the State Championship Pro side that were sponsored. Both guys were Innova sponsored in 2008 and we had in my area Discs that were Discraft stamped, as you could buy in town Innova/Millennium discs only and can only buy those brands in town since Discmania became its own brand.

To finish I posted too early by Mistake , they opted out of the choice of picking out a Discraft disc but not the shirt in the players pack in 2008. Shirt in 2008 was ugly but not the 2007 when only one of them was Innova Sponsored. The other guy did take the disc in 2007 but with no intention of throwing as he was using only Innova at the time but un-sponsored trying to get Innova/Millennium as a sponsor.

As long as the TD adds the minimum cash required to the pro purse to meet the A-tier payout requirements, they can choose to provide player packs to pros that includes free stuff, donations and even items that are paid for. However, pros usually prefer any additional money available, beyond the minimum added cash, to also be added to the cash versus being spent on player pack items.

Generally, no, pros don't get the sort of merchandise-heavy players packs that ams are accustomed to receiving. That's not to say there's not the occasional shirt, or disc, or tube of Zanfel*, but it's nothing at all like what ams get.

Honestly, I'm glad for it. I'm butt-deep in merch of all sorts. It just piles up. Gimme that dolla bill yo.

(*: I have so many tubes of Zanfel.)

Yea, I was curious, too. I googled it, and it's a soap to treat poison ivy.

While pricey, Zanfel seems to be the best treatment I've found for Poison Ivy... once you've already developed itching/rash.

That said, being able to ID ivy, and long pants, scrubbing with Tecnu or dish soap immediately after exposure to completely eliminate reaction beats Zanfel.


But once you got it, Zanfel's the best relief, shirt of cortisone shots.
