Default Who runs your local weekly 'mini' ?

I just found out something I thought was a local situation
may not be unique to our local disc golf courses at all.

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?

Some of us have more than one home course, and may have more than one entity running minis at any particular course.

Our local club, NHDGC, runs the local mini/monthly.

Various Disc Golf clubs run all the weekly leagues around here along with all the tournaments. Usually the stores sponsor some events from time to time but none of them run any events. We have a lot of clubs and courses here in Michigan to choose from.

This. Multiple weekly events, run by someone in conjunction with the club, or a club-member independently from the club, or an individual who just invites people. Or all of the above, depending on which event & course.

But nothing run by the local store (which is me).

Multiple events by club and multiple events by private courses per week.

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.

I'm a member of two different clubs, the main one that I hang out with has minis on Saturday mornings, and Wednesday mornings year round monday nights in the summer. There are three or four guys that rotate running them.

Our group is so small, one of the guys does it. If he can't make it, someone else steps up. I can't say we even have a club.

^^^Same here. Me and one other guy run our weekly, and in the past, the monthly. It's just a par 3 golf course, with 9 permanent baskets though, so it's nothing big. Sometimes we get 12, sometimes 40. If we can't make it, someone steps up. The shop holds the ace pool for us and when it reaches the cap, we dip into the excess for lights, cones, tee markers, etc.
