Plenty of gas stations are basically mini-grocery stores.

My weekly league has a GC for a ctp prize to Casey's (for those not from the Midwest, they also have a sub-sandwich bar & pizza in every shop) Most people like it.

A gift card to an online disc golf seller? Heck yeah! Infinite disc card? That's awesome.

A gift card to a local place when I live hours away? That's pretty crappy.

I do understand how things were hard to get this year so it could be an easy things for TD's offer. Hopefully the cards they get are relevant and useable.

Ask RU or Juke...both of them will tell you,
"What the hell is Bogey gonna do with a growler?"

I get it...it's hard to come up with good player pack ideas. It's neat when you're just starting, but it gets old pretty fast.

Personally (and I might be in the monority here), I'd rather have a lower registration fee on lieu of a players packy. Hard to make it any easier for the TD.

If you wanna give gift cards, make them Visa or MasterCard gift cards. Can be used for booze, disc merch, groceries, condoms...

You won't find an argument here. I loathe putting together player's packs. Trophy only events would be fantastic. The only people who like players packs are those just starting out.

Although, I have found that giving people the option to choose their disc for their PP to be pretty popular.

Ugh. I despise those Visa/MC "gift" cards. There's always a fee to buy it, then they give you a time limit to spend it. Most of the time you have to hit the exact penny amount. Among other caveats to spend your "gift." No thank you.
GC for a pub or bar? That would be handed over to someone else, I'd have absolutely no use for that.
GC for other retailers? I neither want nor need another card clogging up my space.
GC for nationally available restaurant chain? Maybe, as long as its not BK, Pizza Hut, KFC, McDs, or Popeyes. Ok. Nevermind.
A trophy will literally be tossed in the trash on the way out, regardless of finish. Can you sell used trophies?
I'm all for the reduced entry fee idea. I may actually play a tourney in that case, depending on the location, actual cost, and date.

Honestly, I would gladly take anything other than some more discs, minis, erasable scorecards, hats, towels, stickers and a pencil.
Very true.
