Episode three is ready for your ears. We talk about our experience planning a casual disc golf event, not a tournament. Introduction We are competitive, but not all of our friends appreciate the fine arts of tournament play and playing to win. Some of our friends just want to hang out and have some fun. Life application: know your audience Communicate on terms that the audience understands What if you don't know your audience? What is Natalfest/Disception Started as a birthday gathering Intention is to get some friends together and have some casual fun 18 holes on your own 18 holes with your doubles partner, chosen by singles placement Overall winner is best total score and gets to sign/care for the trophy What have we learned? Advertise earlier Expect people to drop - schedules change Cost Figure $5 per person for food Leaves $15 for discs and prizes (spoiler alert, this isn't enough and you should either charge more or reduce to 1 disc per person) Discraft misprint boxes are fun Reduced disc rounds are fun Trilogy Challenge Dynamic Discs Two Disc Challenge Learning the discs is easier when you only have two for a given round Strategy for choosing your discs Consider course layout Mid and driver, no putter? Drivers only? Will your desired disc be available at your "draft" position?
