New Course: Basket Sponsorships

Devens Players,
Work on our new course is progressing well with 8 holes roughed in during our work weekend in September.  If we can sustain this current participation, I anticipate that we will have all 18 holes roughed in by our November work weekend and be ready to place baskets in the ground during our December work days at the latest.
So it’s time to talk fundraising for baskets.  Thanks to the great participation we have at league, including bag tag purchases and the donations of players to the donation tube at the entrance to the course we will be able to pay next year’s fees and insurance as well as tees and signs for the new 18 holes from those funds.  Therefore we will focus fundraising to complete the course on basket purchase.  We will do this through a basket sponsorship program.  Here are the details:
Basket Sponsorship:
            Cost: $400 per basket
            What is included:  1 basket, extra sleeve, sign recognition of sponsor(s).
Do I get anything for Sponsorship?: Sponsors name(s) will be included on signage for that hole, either a separate sign or inclusion on the Hole info sign.
What baskets are being considered: Always a controversial decision, but as of now we plan to install the new 28 chain Innova DISCatcher Pro.
How many people can co-sponsor:  Up to four (4) people can pool funds for each basket.
Who do I pay?:  Payment of the entire amount can be made by cash or check (made out to Kenneth Gary).
Can I choose a hole?:  After all 18 holes are complete, sponsors may choose what hole they would like to sponsor of a first come (payment received), first choice basis. 

When do you need payment?: We will start accepting payments at league, October 9th.  Remember, first to pay will receive first choice of hole.
