They aren't really Trophies they are either glass pints, pilsner or mugs with Tournament logo and place of finished engraved on them and they are sweet and what players really want. I payout atleast top 1/3 of AM divisons with "trophy". This is the Third year of event and we have had over 84players per year and usually have had a choice between 4 different premium disc with no real Backup (with just me and one other person doing reg, I don't allow day of reg so that helps). I don't allow players to finger each disc, keep it moving. wE raised over $1350 for SO last yr through the $10 out of entry, $5 lunch and raffle. So I just want this year to give the Ams a choice but still raise over the $1350 for charity which I think is possible. thanks for all the feedback

Have some of the kids from the Special Olympics make the trophies and then give all the money to the Special Olympics.

Id much rather have two DX rhynos! But thats because I throw them. However if the disc is not a mold that I already bag I keep it for a wall-hanger in any plastic. That being said I dont think the PP is huge deal to many players.

Agreed scarp, OP stated he went 1/3 deep with the trophies. And the only exception I would make the trophy choice for is a nice pint glass. Sorry did not see the OP post below, and any nice beer glass is a treasure to me.

I prefer premium to baseline plastic in a PP. Etched mug would be cool for placing near the top.

One of our local clubs offers various options of discs & gear, so if they were running the tourney:

Amateur registration is $25, plus your choice of the following options:

1. dx roc (+ $2)
2. dx aviar (+ $2)
3. premium disc + mini (+ $10)
4. dx roc + premium disc + mini (+ $15)
5. dx aviar + premium disc + mini (+ $15)

Please note that $10 of your registration fee will be donated to support the Special Olympics.

Additional tournament discs will be available for sale at the event. DX for $10, Premium for $15. Five dollars ($5) of the purchase price or each disc will be donated to the special Olympics.

Something like that.
