Hey all! Last year's competition met my goals for donations. I worked over the proceeding months to bring in many donations. I think we got it to a really high dollar value and I was happy with it. This year, I don't know if I can donate that kind of effort again. However, if the community comes together and we get a good field of contestants, then I will do everything I can to pull it off again.

Another idea would be to keep it small intentionally. Small prize table and small field of contestants.

Any thoughts or comments?

You could always loan out the ban hammer for donations again, seemed to work pretty well.

Count me in on the list. It's like playing in tourneys; I know I'm not gonna win, but love to compete none the less. I'm down to help with donations. Not sure if I would be able to help much with the tech stuff, but I'm sure y'all got that covered. I would be willing to compile donations and get prizes shipped. Just let me know

Long-time lurker, first-time poster

I'd be happy to contribute to the pot. Though this corner of the forum doesn't get as much love as it used to, I really like seeing the creative ways that people rise to the challenge.

I'm in CZ and struggling to get my hands on the right materials, but they should all be here soon so I can try my hand at this. Until then, I'm just absorbing knowledge and inspiration from all your fine folk. Thanks so much for that!

Like I said when I started this thread its just seems like disc dying is just not the same as it once was. There really doesn't seem to be the interest that there was a few years ago. Whats changed? Is it too much work? Is it too frustrating that you do a complex dye and the dye migrates and bleeds together and it makes your hard work looks like a 5 year old colored it with sharpie? I wonder if its just time? Too many things going on? I know in my neck of the woods there are more disc golf events than there have ever been it seems like there is a tournament every weekend.
