Hey all. I have so many ideas, and I'm just beginning to pull them out of my brain and put them on paper. The basics of it is that I want to see many more women in disc golf. I am in the Twin Cities metro area (MN) and I know there are quite a few ladies that play with their boyfriends for rec rounds, but that's it. I want to get new women to start playing, and those that are currently playing to improve and possibly enter leagues and tourneys. I guess I will list some basic ideas.
-business cards with my basic info that can be handed out at any and all courses- even to guys that know ladies that might be interested.
-a possible website where they can go to find out when and where we play
-find a way to pay their first tourney entry fee to encourage them to try it out
-lessons? plenty of great pros (Timmy Gill, Cale, Jon Drummond, Katy Schreder) around and I could teach a little
- could just be casual or play league for cheap
-get the local women that already play tourneys to help out and attend (only 5 or 6 of them)
-sponsorship for a custom stamped disc or shirts or other???
So many ideas- this is just a start. If you have more, I'd love to hear them. I won't be starting this up until April or May as I am interning, working, AND taking 14 credit hours at school. However, I want to get the ball rolling and start getting the word out so that when I have the time to run it I won't have to waste time trying to get it going and find participants and such! Let me know your suggestions AND/ OR criticisms! I want this to work and I want to be able to be helpful in getting more women in the sport! Thanks!!!
