Wanted to give a quick update on the payouts for the divisions and the number of players signed up:-I had four more people sign up today, and the first 70 to get a free disc, mini, and towel are filling up. Only about 30 spots remain for the free stuff so if you haven't signed up yet.....do it soon so you can get the free stuff!-I also wanted to clarify something about the payouts as I had a few people ask: I will be adding money (in the form of merchandise money) to other divisions besides Pro. While I have a lot of money added for the tournament, I wanted to take care of other divisions as well. While the Pro Division is getting a nice chunk of change (as evidenced by the guaranteed $475 in cash to the winner and the free merch money to those that don't place), I am also adding money to Advanced and Intermediate and a small amount to the Masters Divisions. Recreation will still be a nice field with some awesome prizes as well. The logic behind this is simply that I knew I couldn't get 100 pros to play my tournament, and I wanted to cater to other divisions because of my higher than average entry fees. So while Pro is certainly getting some nice money added, other divisions will have some added money payable in merchandise.-I will post a list of the pre-registered players in the next few weeks. I have already posted a "Pro" pre-reg list.I also wanted to remind everyone that the top advanced player will get at least $125 in cash and $125 in merch money. So far, only five advanced have signed up as a handful of upper players are making the job to Pro for this tournament (12 Pros signed up so far). So there could be an opportunity for someone there! On the intermediate side, first prize is looking at least $100 in merchandise money plus a little goody.....As I have enticed the pros and advanced with extra merch money for those that don't place, I wanted to do something extra for the Intermediate players. Coop Records in East Peoria has added an extra $50 in gift cards to the tournament, so a big thanks to them! With that in mind, the top intermediate player will get an extra $30 in Coop Records gift certificates while the 2nd prize in intermediate will get an extra $20 in Coop Records gift certificates, on top of the actual prize money.So don't wait to sign up! I should be able to announce four more sponsors this week!
