I-94 'Rider' Cup - A Battle at the Border graphic

About this tournament

This is your Northern Illinois (team Bishop Ford) vs team Northern Indiana (team Borman) BATTLE AT THE BORDER!

This team challenge will be using the Ryder Cup (famous Bolf tournament US vs Europe) for its round styles and scoring. We will need two days in order to make this happen. Doing 1 round tee times since this is so late in the year, little daylight.

While I have the divisions limited - you will VERY LIKELY still be able to still play! Just need to make sure you have a partner/opponent! Wait list should only be temporary!

Want to make this a great experience for all! Players will receive:
-A tournament stamped disc (discmania P2 or MD3 - players choice while supplies last)
-Disc CTP (One per day unless sponsor/s add more) - probably something from my USDGC Partner stock.
-Lunch at the end of Sunday's round (lighting up the smoker! Veggie option will be available)
-Sparkling juice (maybe fermented, pending park regulations) to the winning team for celebrations!
-Losing team gets consolation Malört (pending park regulations)

-Shirt with logo seen at the top of this page!
-50/50 Cash CTP - 1 PER DAY: half of each goes to a donation. Day 1 goes to Wounded Warrior Project. Day 2 goes to Duneland Disc Golf Club's new clubhouse fund.
-Ace fund that runs both days! If no hits, CTP for half, and the other half will go to Wounded Warrior Project. Paid via PayPal after the tournament.
-'Big Dog' CTP on day 2 - chance to put some real money on the line for a bigger payout! Will be on a hole that we think most people would have a chance on. No buy-ins after the fact!

-50/50 CTPs change to all donation
-'Big Dog' Ace I will refund via here or PayPal, TBD if it happens.
-BBQ will still continue unless lightning somehow forms that day. Otherwise food will be purchased so that'll just be a wash (literally)
