The 2014 Eat Sleep Disc Point Series came to a close yesterday. What a great time we had running it. Thank all of you flat ball throwers for making our tournaments competitive and fun. Between the 7 events we had 484 participants and averaged just over 69 players per event. At the series finale between the tournament pay out, player packs, bonus purse and trophies we paid out $4,023 worth, while entry fees only added up to $2,170. So we were able to payout 185% of FAIR market value prizes. This doesn't even include Chris Mullins $96 Ace Pot (#16 Long Left) or Danny Self winning the Discatcher Sport in the Basket Throw Off!
Congrats to Shawn Aaron, an old Huntsville native who now resides in Fort Campbell, KY for making the 500 mile round trip to each of our seven events and taking home the Advanced Series Trophy and Title. Shawn had a co-pilot for his long travels south to Alabama. All of the players in the Recreational field know him as Shinn Bone as Ben Shinn took home the Recreational Series Hardware and Prestige. Jeff Jordan who resides a couple miles south of Nashville in Thompsons Station, TN who made a few long trips down I-65 himself to bring home the Advanced Masters Series Crystal Ball. One of disc golf's up and coming lefties Tim Turnbull has seen his game continue to get better with age. He won Event #6 at his home course in Hartselle, AL and took home the Intermediate Series Blue Ribbon. Congrats to all the Ladies for winning their respective division series awards.
