PLAYERS PACKS

This is not a $10 funny money event. The Flight Center works diligently to partner with sponsors and contributors to provide some of the most impressive players packs and payouts in the sport. 
The 2014 and 2015 HOMIE events provided cash, player's packs, trophies, food and prizes valuing more than $50,000 per event. The 2016 event value exceeded $30,000. Note that per the family's request we have drastically dropped the price of this year's HOMIE to offer more players the opportunity to play. We will still continue to provide a top quality event at any cost and we are actively working with our sponsors on the details of the player pack items (discs and quantities per manufacturer and their contributions to this tournament). More information will be posted in the upcoming weeks as we get closer to the event.

Timely registration allows us to offer more AM player pack items and it allows us to better prepare for the most number of players possible while keeping event costs in check. Note that not all vendors donate to every player pack and not all donated items are the same. For these reasons we create tiered players packs to meet or exceed PDGA requirements.

More details regarding specific player pack items will be posted here as they become available.

There is an estimated value of more than $2000.00 in CTP merchandise up for AM grabs at this year's HOMIE.  There is NO LIMIT to the number of prizes you can win on Saturday.  On Sunday, all players will play for the CTP 50/50 by division!

OUR EDUCATIONAL DISC GOLF EXPERIENCE PARtNERSHIP


As part of this year's HOMIE we have teamed up once again with Jay and Des Reading to host the 4TH Annual EDGE HOMIE Event Fundraiser! Our target goal is to help raise another $1000 for EDGE in memory of Matt Lovasko and to help grow the sport in our Indiana schools!!! At the 2014 HOMIE we raised $1128.00. In 2015 only $253.  In 2016 we raised another $1000!!  During HOMIE you will have an opportunity to help us raise these funds through raffles, beer tips and more!  So bring your dollars and and help us support this great cause in furthering the sport of disc golf!  ALL proceeds go for this worthy cause of promoting disc golf through the Educational Disc Golf Experience for schools in Indiana. Help us grow the sport and get in on the fun to win!
