The 1st Floatin' Monkey Fling Update - May 10th, 2012
After the highly anticipated Ozarks Flying Disc Club's Inaugural Players Cup Weekend takes place this Friday and Saturday in Nixa and Ozark, the 1st Floatin' Monkey Fling is set for the following weekend on May 19th. The Floatin' Monkey Fling is going to be quite an awesome tournament with many supporters that include disc golfers, as well as, many who know/knew little to nothing about the sport until they met the organizer of this event, Raymond Kirk. Ray, who owns Noel Pharmacy in Noel, MO, has worked hard to round up support for this event. He has rallied sponsors from around Noel and along the Elk River that we will be floating down for the tourney. The list is impressive being that there is no course in the local area. Sponsors include: Noel Pharmacy, PBA Health, Landon Feed & Seed, Kathy's Kountry Kitchen, The Hog Shop, Arvest Bank, McDonald County, Main Sweets, Annie's Pizza, and Bluff Dwellers Cavern. Along with all the DGM 2012 Lucky Monkey Tour Sponsors this event is definitely highly anticipated and supported.
As mentioned on the flier, we will be doing registration at the Harp's Grocery Store in Noel, MO.
YOU MUST REGISTER (OR CHECK IN IF PRE REGISTERED) BETWEEN 7:00 and 11:00 AM!!.
You may also pre register for this event at my shop, at the Player's Cup, or through Pay Pal (directions below), but you will still need to check in before 11:00. Once registered, players will be shuttled to the canoe launch site in groups of 4-8. If you show up after 11:00 AM I doubt there will be anyone there...so please don't miss the boat/canoe! The reason for the dead line is because the float is several hours long and when combining the 18 holes, well, it will take a while.
For those who are going to camp, there are several sites that are supporting this event. Shady Beach at http://www.shadybeach.com , River Ranch http://www.riverranchresort.com , and Two Sons http://www.twosonsfloats.com . Please check rates and support these facilities as they are eagerly anticipating the presence of Disc Golf! I know there are both primitive camping and cabins available. I'm sure cabins are limited so reserve early.
The 1st Floatin' Fling has caught the attention of many around the area. I am very excited that one of my best and longest supporting sponsors will be at this one. My great friends and owners of Discs Unlimited, Dennis & Annetta Volshultz, have said they will be there. Dennis mentioned today (as several of you have) he was happy that disc golf and floating were combined because they were two of his favorite things to do. As I mentioned before, there should be a lot of fun memories made at this One-of-a-Kind tournament...The 1st Floatin' Monkey...Get set to get wet! See ya there.
