The Fantastic Caverns Open - Jul 14th, 2009
Disc Golf Monkey is gearing up for the 1st PDGA event in Springfield since 2005's Sunburn Open). The Fantastic Caverns Open to be held on the July 25th was a bit of a surprise location to everyone involved. Making a long story short, after the Tom Watkins course idea was turned down by the Springfield Greene County Park Board, Fantastic Caverns was asked if a tournament on their property could be held. The idea was received with open arms by Fantastic Caverns. The site is truly one of the most beautiful pieces of land used for a tournament in the Springfield area. The course will offer a great mix of rolling hills, short and long shots, and beautiful mature trees will serve as great challenges to all. Several new sponsors have been added for this event, including Amazing Chaney Autobody & Paint, Educating Disc Golf Experience (EDGE), Hooters, Coors, and Karma. A special thank you to all my supporters including, sponsors, players, and staff. You are the reason for it all!
This event will again follow the same tournament plan of incredible players packs, awesome pay-outs, and a whole lot of fun. There will be a raffle benefiting EDGE offering discs, shirts, a basket, and much more. All players will receive a discount on tickets to the Caverns (family members are included and rates are $15 for adults and $6 for kids so bring the family). Also, players will enjoy a disc, lunch, and an invite to a Hooters after party (where there will be free wings provided and sponsored by Hooters, Coors, and the Disc Golf Monkey)! The 1st 72 players will also enjoy a commemorative shirt as well, so sign up quickly! A word of caution must be addressed, there is NO ALCOHOL allowed on the property of Fantastic Caverns. Fantastic Caverns does enforce the no alcohol rule, and for this reason we have offered the after party with free wings and anything else you wish to purchase at Hooters. Thank you for your cooperation, and we ask to please abide by all PDGA rules so Fantastic Caverns will invite us back for many more tournaments. Thank You and I will see you at the Cave!
