I did for 18 weeks. Even received two compliments about how organized it was ran, one thru the PDGA feedback link. Unfortunately, half of the younger locals did not prefer the organization and how I ran it, so the attendance numbers dwindled. No one else is willing to step up and run it.

Local club made money. The crowd that was left attending was better quality people. So I call it a win!

Forgot to mention I am in former Southern Nationals territory. Some of you will understand.

Who runs your weekly local mini - tournament ?

Does your local disc golf club run the weekly Mini??

Or does a local disc golf shop run, control and hold the cash for your home course's weekly mini?
If the shop has been doing it for a while and they're not taking a cut of the entry fees for running the mini and there haven't been any shenanigns, I don't see why this is a concern. (And even if they ARE taking a cut of the entry fees, as long as that's disclosed up front so players can make an informed decision whether or not to participate, I don't consider it a problem.)

It's the offseason so the club is only running four random draw doubles events, two handicap singles events and putting league per week. Add another random draw doubles, handicap singles and women only event to our roster of events during the spring/summer each week.

A healthy reminder of the diversity of situations in disc golf. One size---or one answer---doesn't fit all. I'm not sure any of us have an answer that applies to the O.P.'s situation.

Which I'm guessing, reading between the lines without my guesses, is all about a local store running local minis.

I used to run one, someone else runs one and then someone else also runs one.
