PREREGISTRATION: You can "preregister" by just letting us know that you are coming and you can pay your entry fee the morning of the tournament when you check in. You need to be there by 9:00 a.m. to pay your entry fee if you "preregistered" to secure your spot for sure. We must limit the tournament to the first 90 players. You can either email myself or tim engstrom if you want us to save you a spot. Or you can send us a message on DiscGolfScene.com also. This helps us to know how many to expect, and get a jump start on the registration process.
Our record for players at an NIT Tournament is 48! (at our last 2 tournaments!)
I am guessing we will break that record!!!!!! I am expecting huge numbers!!!!!!!!
We are averaging 43.33 players at our NIT Tournaments so far in 2011!
In 2010 we averaged 32.43 players at each NIT Tournament!
Last year we had 30 NIT Members, and this year we are already at 48 NIT Members!!!!!!
Only the next 2 players to sign up for a 2011 NIT Membership will get a NIT Membership Package. (Shirt, Disc, Bag Tag, Mini, Sticker) Any players to sign up for a 2011 NIT Membership after that, will not get a Membership Package. So if you are still wanting to get signed up, you better get to Albert Lea early!!!! 2011 NIT Memberships are $20 for Men and $15 for Women!!!!!
Our "average" Open Men's Purse this year has been $310, with the Open Champ taking home about $110 cash!
We have our first NIT Ace Fund capped at $100, and a second NIT Ace Fund started with $50 already! We will easily get that second NIT Ace Fund capped at $100 with a third NIT Ace Fund started at this Tournament! So there will be plenty of chances to take home some of the Benjamins!!!!!!!!
There will be 9 different CTP Prizes also!!!!!!!!!!
SPREAD THE WORD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
See you on Sunday! Mark Skellenger Tour Coordinator 641-390-0226
