The Battle of Stoney Hill

                    October 26-27, 2013   


4-MAN TEAM EVENT!

Big changes in the Battle this year!  We've moved to late October and gone to 2-days.  But most importantly, it'll be a Team Play event.  If you played one before, we just finished competing at the National Team Challenge at the IDGC, and it was a blast!

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.  See bottom of page.  But in the meantime:

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 6 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? 

 


 

MORE INFO

 

Team Captains will designate players as A, B, C, D.  This is not necessarily by order of ability.  The second page of the flyer shows which teammates will be paired in which rounds and formats, and teams can make strategic decisions based on this.  We'll need to know at check-in on Saturday morning.

 

Lunch has not been nailed down yet.  We hope to have lunch available but, until we can confirm it, you should plan to bring lunch with you.  There's not much available within driving range.

 

We think we've arranged for interesting formats and will develop a good point system.  But it's somewhat experimental, so please bear with us through our growing pains.

 

Camping is available for free, in several locations around the course.  Campers may use the shower in the house as available; bring your own towels, soap, etc.
