The Lucky 13 is this Saturday...Don't miss the PDGA Season Opener of the Going Banana's Tour 2013! - Mar 14th, 2013
The Lucky 13 is this Saturday as many of you know. My apologies for not posting earlier, but I have been working on both this event and the new DGM mobile trailer that I am sure everyone will enjoy. Nearly 60 players have pre registered and I have heard that there are several others coming, but plan on paying the day of. I am hoping to reach 90 again this year, and will allow up to 100 players. Remember only the first 90 players are guaranteed a players pack so get registered. All players will receive a disc and have food provided by this years food sponsor Little Caesars (Thanks Zach Pirwitz for making this happen)!
What is new this year in the Going Bananas Tour?
As I mentioned above I have a new mobile store that measures 25' which is 8' longer, 4” taller, and 4” wider. This means a lot more merchandise can be stored. With over 450 discs coming in the last few weeks, and new Tour Apparel just in, I am ready to offer an even better selection during pay out time. I can't wait until Saturday to make the debut!
Also new this year are several large sponsorships that will benefit everyone. I would like to welcome back all my previous sponsors and welcome aboard Legacy Discs, Dynamic Discs, and the Journey Post. Vibram has chosen to do another CTP/ACE Competition this year and will again result in a Monkey Trap to be given away. I am super excited to officially announce that Millennium Discs, Legacy Discs, and Dynamic Discs are joining in this awesome exclusive DGM CTP/ACE Competition. That's right, each player will now have 4 chances to win awesome CTP packages and 4 chances to qualify in taking home 4 Monkey Traps at the end of the year. Remember there is no cost involved. Simply use the brand disc that the hole is being sponsored by and you are eligible!
The Going Bananas tour also has some PDGA Tier changes to some of the events. The big tier change is that of the 4 States Open which is registered as the first ever A Tier on tour. The Joplin Disc Golf Club, has worked very hard and has proven that they are capable of not only running a large event, but running one well! Congratulations to all involved in making this happen. The Pitt Open is also moving up to a B Tier and will offer 2 days and two courses. The Monkey Trap Open in Springdale, AR will also be a B Tier thanks to NNWA for there continued support of this event. There are two new stops on the Tour as well. Both Rolla, MO and Harrison, AR are welcomed additions to this years Tour.
Stay tuned for more updates, and I hope to see many of you in Republic this Saturday!
