Someone else picking out merch for me b4 I show up and then charging me full retail sounds like the worst idea ever. If that was a business it would fail. But since this is the pdga and people dont understand the system it continues to grow instead. Now at least I know what to look for. And this also seems like a system that will keep your not new to the game and not new to tournaments away unless they are a cashing pro. But maybe I am the only one who wants to win peoples entry money and I pay the pdga to hopefully lessen the amount of sandbaggers and provide a levelish field for me to compete against people of the same skill.
First off I"d like to say your brother wasn't cool, he was rude. As rude as anybody has ever been to me at a event I have ran. Second we profited nothing off the players pack as retail would have been roughly $60. The cost we took out was 10 for the shirt, 12 for the hat and 7 for the discs. You also received 2 vinyl decals as part as your players pack. The trophies cost a total of $300. You also have $3 from each entry for the PDGA and $2 for the EDGE program. You also have the sanctioning fees, PDGA Ins cost, and the special events permit from the Army core. Coming on ere and saying we did something dishonest and out of line is bullshit. I use to respect you, I dont anymore. You are throwing mud on an event a worked really hard on. You didnt even play in it , so shut the phuck up. As far as Matt goes, hasn't he taking enough from rec players this year, and I think he is missing the whole point of rec if he is bitching about his pay out, and so are you. If you are showing up playing Am disc golf, hoping to turn a profit, your missing the point of being an am. Also I'm really mad at myself for giving you a deal on those bags. You sir are moron and would prefer in the near future to keep your distance from me.
