The Battle of Stoney Hill
November 1-2, 2014
4-MAN TEAM EVENT!
In 2013 we converted this to a team play event,
and it was a blast! So we're doing it again in 2014, hoping more of our
disc golf friends will join us for a weekend of teamwork and rivalry and camping
and enjoying Stoney Hill at its fall peak.
We'll be moving a week of our usual date, for
just this one year, and hoping that works out for most people.
One thing that hasn't changed is that we'll be
raising money for The Children's Heart Foundation. We hope to raise $1,000
or more, and your attendance will help us meet this goal.
More details to come, as we have them.
Why were we raising
money for the The Children's Heart Foundation? Ask our spokesman:
Hi, my name is Drake Sauls (PDGA
#34432). I'm almost 7 years old. I have 3 sisters, 2 dogs, and a mended heart. When I was born, I was in big trouble.
The doctors told my Mom and Dad that if my heart condition wasn't corrected, I
wouldn't see my first birthday. They said I had "Transposition of the
Great Arteries", but that it was fixable. "Fixable, like putting the
rubber tire back on my monster truck?" I asked. "Exactly," they
They said I was going to stay in
the P.C.I.C.U. clinic at MUSC for a while until I healed. It's an area
designated for babies born with heart conditions ("blue babies"). My
mind bounced around like a butterfly in a tornado. How in the world
are they going to operate on me? I only weigh six pounds! How do
they know what they're doing? Who paid for the research? Who's
paying for all this fancy equipment? Why do they want to save my life?
How could I know there were
organizations like The Children's Heart Foundation, raising money for research
to save children like me.
Apparently someone you know,
someone you met, or possibly even you yourself, made a donation to such an
organization at some point in time. The money helped
research, study, diagnose, correct, and educate America against its #1 killer,
heart disease. Without it, I wouldn't be here today, growing up on a
disc golf course. So I've decided that now it's my turn to help.
With my Dad and Uncle, I'm raising money for the The Children's Heart
that someday will be used to save a life. I'm having a 2-day Team Play disc golf
tournament on October 26-27, with the hope to raise over $1,000. Our idea
is that part of each entry will go to the charity, so if we get enough
players, we'll make it. So
please help us fill and reach our goal. If you can't make it, please consider a small donation to the CHF
in my honor, either through the tournament or by visiting their website at
Stoney Hill Disc Golf Course
After all that, how
could we refuse?
