PDGA Announces Major Event Bid Guidelines
The Professional Disc Golf Association is pleased to announce the release of the Bid Guidelines for PDGA Major Events for events in the years 2013, 2014, and 2015. The PDGA has created these bid guideline packages to assist prospective communities in presenting their case for hosting one of disc golf’s showcase events and lays out the guidelines on how to prepare a bid to host a PDGA Major.
PDGA Major Events are the premier national and international competitions for the sport of disc golf each year, featuring the world’s best men and women disc golfers competing for world and national championship titles in multiple age and gender based divisions. These marquee tournaments offer any city or town the chance to host an international sporting event in their community, drawing interest and attention to the location, and generating economic impact for local businesses.
The deadline for the submission of bids for 2013 Major events is May 31, 2012. It is the intention of the PDGA to award the hosting of these events as soon as possible. The deadline for the submission of bids for 2014 & 2015 Major events is August 31, 2012. These bids will be reviewed and awarded by the PDGA Board of Directors at the Fall Summit in September 2012.
