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 responded.

 

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 Foundation 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 www.childrensheartfoundation.org.

 

Thanks,

 

Drake Sauls

After all that, how could we refuse?
