WOW, September 20th, 2014 will be here soon and there is much to do to get ready... This will take place at the Fairways of Fairhope disc golf course in Fairhope Alabama, a 20 hole course that is very well maintained...
..
This will be a team event that will raise money for the WOUNDED WARRIOR PROJECT... Our goal is to try to raise $6,000 for this great NON-PROFIT organization that helps soldiers coming home that have been wounded while defending OUR freedoms and serving OUR country... 
...
The Southern National Board of Directors has voted to allow each player that participates to receive 2 S/N points for playing...
...
How this works:
Teams (crewes) of up to 5 players will pay only $10 for each team "crewe" to enter the event, this is just to cover the Southern National sanctioning fees..
The event will be limited to a maxium of 60 "crewes"... The reason for this, only three players on each hole will increase the speed of play... We will play 5 rounds NON-STOP in order to get the 100 holes played by each "crewe" completed in a single day... Each "crewe" member will be responsibile for playing at least 1 complete round of 20 holes before the next "crewe" member can start the next round... This way no one gets exausted trying to carry the 100 holes by themselves...
....
Each "crewe" is asked to find sponsors for their "crewe" for so much per hole played by the "crewe"... For example a "crewe" finds 5 people that will sponsor them for 20 cents per hole played, that is $0.20 x 100 holes = $20.00 that each sponsor will pay.. 5 sponsors x $20.00 = $100.00 the "crewe" raised for WOUNDED WARRIOR PROJECT... If each "crewe" can raise that amount then
60 "crewes" x $100.00 = $6,000.00... It is just that easy, 10 sponsors at 10 cents per hole , or 4 sponsors at 25 cents per hole, any way the "crewe" can hit the minimum goal of sponsorship of $1 per hole... If a "crewe" can raise more than a dollar per hole that would be even better... The idea is not to just meet the goal of $6,000.00 but to try to exceed it...
...
Like I stated earlier this will be NON-STOP between rounds, as soon as the first "crewe" member finishes the round the next "crewe" member needs to be ready to tee off and start the second round, and on and on we go till 5 full founds are played... So take a moment to think....
60 "crewes" at up to 5 "crewe" members each will mean 300 players at the course... Because only 60 will be actually playing at any given time there will be lots of time to do other things... I am hoping that some will volunteer to be score keepers in their free time... This would also help to keep the rounds moving a little quicker...
....
The "crewes" are NOT DIVISIONAL, by that I mean all you need are up to 5 players that want to help raise money for the WOUNDED WARRIOR PROJECT... A family of 5 could make up a "crewe"... This means EVERYBODY is eligible if they want to play...
....
Meet my shipmates, they are the BEST ! ! !
I am lucky enough to have the support of some FANTASTIC people from all around the Southern Nationals to help "crewes" get set up and distribute information as it becomes available... They are :
Miss Teresa Key....... Pensacola & Ft. Walton, FL
Joshua Ehmke ......... Birmingham, AL
Brooks Newell .......... Baton Rouge, LA
Zack Hudson ........... Tupelo, MS
Doug Willams ........... Jackson, MS
Eric Day... ... ............Mississippi Gulf Coast
Steven Street............ Fairhope & Baldwin county, AL
A VERY SPECIAL THANK YOU to each of these people for accepting my request for help...
.....
As you can imagine this will be a lot different event than you are used to participating in... More like A festival day of Disc Golf and that is what i am shooting for.... Lots of fun, socializing, making new friends and spending quality time with old friends from all across the Southern Nationals... I have lots of things planned to keep the day fun and entertaining....
...
i am already in contact with a couple of the local hotels in Fairhope to arrange special rates for Friday & Saturday night accommodations for those who will be coming in from out of town... This will give you a chance to really enjoy all that Fairhope and the Eastern Shore has to offer... Come on down and make a weekend of helping the WOUNDED WARRIOR PROJECT...
...
There is a whole year between now and the "PIRATES for PATRIOTS" event and a lot to get done in the mean time... I would like for everyone to think about who we are doing this for... I'll be getting sponsor information out to my SHIPMATES shortly after the first of the new year... As time grows closer to spring you'll be hearing more and more about what we have planned and i would expect this to fill the 60 "crewes" without any problem so start recruiting crewe members now before some other Capt'n "press gangs" them into his "crewe"...
