The 3rd Annual Lucky 13 Recap - Mar 20th, 2011
The 3rd Annual Lucky 13 proved to be another fun event. The weather was much better than last year with warmer temperatures and very little rain. Despite the rain, the natural tee pads held up with minimal slipping. 57 players battled and several new champions were crowned.
Frank Hebert had the shot of the day with a Tomahawk Ace on hole 15. This $155 toss was heard all over the course. Great job Frank! Winners this year were: Jessica Sisco (Rec Women), Norine Gaskill (Int Women), Austin Mcbride (Rec Men), Gage Gillum (Intermediate Men), Bruce Heidebrecht (Adv Grand Masters), Zack Jones (Advanced Men), Kevin Hart (Pro Masters), and Russ Burns (Open Men). For the full results, visit www.pdga.com or go to the tournament tab above and scroll down to past events and click on results. Congratulations to all winners!
The biggest win of the day was not done on the course. Instead it was won as part of the EDGE Raffle! Because all of the EDGE loot was not in, Disc Golf Monkey tried to get players to buy into this year's Lucky 13 Raffle by offering a custom colored Lucky 13 Monkey Trap (check it out on my Gallery). This $400 custom colored and wrapped basket was 1st offered as a $5 ace on the 213' hole number 13. When it failed to be hit, the basket was then put into the EDGE raffle as designed. With very few tickets being purchased initially, the chance at winning the Trap made many players open their wallets. $225 was raised for EDGE! This is an incredible start to the season. Thank you to all, and congratulations to TEAM MONKEY'S, Kyle McClure, for winning it with his $5 ticket purchase (SICK)!
The players packs were again beefy as all players received a custom disc, shirt, and lunch free of charge. A special thanks to our sponsors: McAlister's Deli (what a lunch), Complete Accounting, Queen City Cycles, and Northside Dental! Remember if you find sponsors for my events, it will benefit you greatly this year!
The Evolution Tour has had two stops, and has given away 2 Traps. The next will be in Ozark for the 2nd Relay for Life tournament, and yes, there will be another Trap to be given away there too! Looking forward to seeing you all there!
