All of these are great questions.
1) Mixed Division. This is really same answer as all the other divisions. There are many opportunities to for mixed, masters, AM's during the summer. We started this tourney because we felt we would try something different. We do not do player packs and payout between 85 and 90 percent of what we take in, in cold hard cash. There is no sandbagging and no disputes about where your reg fee is going.
2) Are you going to guarantee last years payouts? Maybe someday when we have a corporate sugar daddy, we may. But as it stands Keene Disc Golf Club cannot front/guarantee 2500$ in prize money plus the cost of putting on the event. I frankly dont know many local organizations that could!
3) So what are we paying? Well considering it sounds like many people are sitting on the sidelines waiting to see who signs up...this is where we stand today 7/18. We have 11 teams signed up and if we played tomorrow we would pay out 400$ to first, 250$ to second and 100$ to third. (give or take a few bucks.) And like last year, pays out to almost 1/3 of the field. Not bad...
So that is where Summer of Dubz stands. We know we are competing with other tournaments and in New England disc golf nowadays it is almost impossible not too. At very least, next year we hopefully will not be on same weekend as Blueberry Jam given its proximity to Otter Brook!
So there you go! Grab a partner, bring your A game, win some ching!
