Finale Update and the 1st Raffle Winner - Nov 2nd, 2011
Today was an eventful day for the Finale. I was asked to be on a local news program in Harrison (Hometown TV, K26 TV) to discuss the game of disc golf and the upcoming Finale tournament! This was a great experience, and will air soon. I believe you can find it on line at http://www.k26tv.com/ . I also had an interview with the Harrison Times which is the local news paper. This was an equally awesome experience, and the article should come out early next week. The city of Harrison has done an incredible job getting the word out and supporting this event! Along with the huge sponsorship from the Harrison Convention and Visitors Bureau, John Paul's Gathering Place, the Hotel Seville, and McDonalds have all pitched to make this a true Finale. The players packs are growing with the minimum being a Long Sleeve T-Shirt, a rare/or CFR disc (pics on FB), lunch (catered by John Paul's), and more is in the works. The raffle, to be held at the after party at John Paul's in the Hotel Seville, is going to be sweet too with a lot of fun, collectible, and useable items (Championship Approved?)! Well besides all this, the course is awesome. After the 4th time of looking at the land and designing the course, I think it is ready to show case. What's it like well...bring your full bag and be ready to play, because it's going to be sweeeeeeet!
So my daughter Angelia was sick last night and stayed home from school today. Before she went to bed early, her awesome mom (my wonderful wife Melissa), prepared the raffle. Instead of pulling out big Scorepointe cards out of an even bigger box (that would make shuffling near impossible), my wife suggested making numbered papers since I numbered each Scorepointe card (glad she thinks better than I do). So Angelia picked out #9. Drum Roll Please...The winner from Joplin, MO is... Zack Jones. If you would like to see a picture of her holding the #9 I will be posting it on Facebook shortly. Congratulation Zack. Zack just informed me that he is taking the room, so the free entry and the glass mini are still available.
Don't forget there will be another raffle at 50. If we don't get 50 Pre Registers, I will still do a drawing Wednesday the 9th. Check back soon for updates!
