Can't image we would much worse than the live broadcast crew over at the DGPT.
If you mean the beginning of last year's camera men, then I agree.

Beer, loads of beer. Looking for a sponsor, targeting those guys that make Imperial Voodoo Ranger. Nice label, plus a 1/2 dozen of those will wreck you. Also If I dress them up to match the beer label they will be easy to spot. They will be the guys laying on the ground passed out with an iPhone pointed at the sky hoping a disc flies over so they don't have to move much.

Might need to strap a GoPro to their head this way I won't have replace a bunch of lost iPhones. Plus that way they have free hands to carry more beer.

So let's do some quick math,

225K for a badass bus with a wrap.
18 GoPrs at 99.00 each bought on Black Friday, one for each hole.
18 cases of Imperial VooDoo Ranger per event times 30 events, say a grand or so just in case some one has a hollow leg...30K
20k for munchies
10K for tournament trinkets we buy along the way.
100K for bail money and bribes

So 377K and 34 cents ought to do me.

So if I do a KickStart campaign I ought to be able to get this rolling by the first event....

This thread is embarrassing. Whoever posted this has way too much time on their hands. What a complete waste of time. Just to confirm...the PDGA BOD absolutely did not pass this.

Thread should have been sent to the landfill on day one. 16 days later it is still here, why?

I think you guys are missing the satire element... perhaps on purpose.

There's a difference between writing satire and spreading false rumors.

This definitely isn't satire. Satire is supposed to be funny. When several people commented on the thread that they actually we're believing this, that means the satire wasn't well received. For anyone who knows me you know that there aren't many people who are more sarcastic than me, but this just wasn't funny. DGCR used to be a great place to have passionate and mostly factual disc golf discussions. As a PDGA BOD member I would love to see it get back to that. Too many times when I come on here and read a thread I pretty much see 80 percent of the comments as sarcasm/satire. Just sayin'!
