C-tier · PDGA sanctioned singles tournament
About this tournament
$20 Flat fee for all divisions.The PDGA fees have been waived and will be donated to the charity. All percentages will be consistant with the previous events, and PDGA guidelines.
The point series is simple. Every time a player participates in an event they should enter the same division. In doing so, they will get a point for themself and a point for every player in their division that they beat. At the end, the top 30% of the field for each division will be payed out the money collected.
The final event will be at Sims Park in Euclid. It will be a PDGA Sanctioned Ice Bowl, worth double points for all participants.
***** PLEASE NOTE *****
The divisions will be restricted to the following for this event. To keep in line with the point series, the following divisions will be offered:
Pro - Men and Women
Am1 (Advanced) - Men and Women
MM1 (Adv. Masters) - Men and Women
Am2 (Intermediate) - Men and Women
There will be no Am3 (Recreational) division offered.
The only change to divisions really affects the Advanced group. There was some interest when the series started to have an Adv. Masters group. We decided against it for the entire series but felt it would be appropriate to add to the final event. However, since this is an on-going points event, the payout will alter just a tiny bit. Each division will be payed out individually, not cumulatively. IE, for the Euclid event, the Am1 monies will stay in that pool and the Adv. Masters money will stay in that pool. When it comes to paying out the points series, the final event scores will be shuffled together for both Adv. divisions and points awarded for Euclid in one large Advanced group.
For anyone choosing to change divisions for the final event, your points will not follow you. The points earned in a division, will remain in that division. There is no other way we can weight them and allow them to follow you. Thank you for understanding.
Each event will payout to those who participate. just as with the PDGA...
pros = cash... ams = merchandise
The charity will rotate annually. This year it is the Akron Food Bank.
Each event's proceeds will be set aside to be added together with the next... All money raised will be donated at one time at the end of the series. less

To the regular Euclid folks.. I lost my purple factory first run valkyrie in the drink on hole 19. I'm not sure whether it had my name on it or not, but it is buried in the mud pit that resides beneath the water that has pooled there..may it RIP, unless of course someone recovers it and I would gladly take it back :)

FYI - Firstly, thanks to the masses who showed up today, you are all rockstars! We made our goal, the NEO Alliance will be donating over $2000 to the Akron/Canton Regional Food Bank as a result of your dedication to the FFF point series! As for the course today, I have been playing on that course since its inception and that is the WETTEST it has EVER been. Thank you all for gutting it out, not complaining and making it such a wonderful day! I would like to personally thank Eric and Katie ... more

Thank you all for gutting it out, not complaining and making it such a wonderful day! I would like to personally thank Eric and Katie for their dedication to the number crunching and commitment to making each and every event run so smoothly. To Team Jenkins for supplying the much needed kick off event and the tarps necessary to keep us reasonably comfortable. To GYO for taking care of ALL of the tee pads! To the dedicated EUCLID! throwers for putting out such a wonderful spread for lunch and for all the rest of the NEO community who throughout the series dedicated their time and efforts to making each tournament run so smoothly.
These events do not work without you guys and your commitment to being there! See you on the fairways this season and look for the Series to run again next Winter!

Judy - Thanks for the reminder - TIME CHANGE!!!!! Set those clocks ahead!
Chris - Yes, vast understatement.
Ken - Done
e liss - As SpiGGy said, yes, we are paying the tournament out as itself. There also is a point series going on that you probably wouldn't score on but it is a PDGA event so points can still be acquired for yourself. Please come.

if someone hasn't played in any of the other events, would they still have a chance at prizes?

Tee pads are shoveled!! Gyo is a ROCKSTAR!! There is anywhere from 4-10 inches and it is melting as I type this. We are playing all cement tee pads except 7 tomorrow. We will be adding the practice basket making it two rounds of 19. It is simply too sloppy to play the two natural tees. Hope to see you out tomorrow!

If any discs were lost @ parma over the winter we found a bunch and pulled a few from the lake. Some of you have been contacted, please find either Jim H or I we may have yours! found about 20 discs.

FYI! T-Shirts will be available commemorating the Winter points series. They will be $10 and available from PK Deaner. Looks like Madre Nature has added something to my to-do list....shovel the damn tee pads. Drat.
See you on Sunday (well not Greg)

Well..... I'm not gonna be able to make it this weekend. This should make things interesting for the AM2 points series.

Large branch on hole 4 is clear of the fairwar. Go past and it is back in play.
Suggestion to possibly boost charity funds. Have a $2 ace pool instead of a $1 ace pool. If somebody(s) hits and ace (which is entirely likely at the "U") they get all the payout. If nobody hits an ace, CTP for 1/2 of the fund and the other half goes to charity. Due to Euclid's layout, more people are likely to buy into ace fund as opposed to, oh say, Parma.
