Please join us in welcoming aboard Patrick Graziani. Patrick will be our new Festival Coordinator. A little bit about Patrick:
Festival of the Flying Discs
The Festival is a critical piece of the Pro Tour. It is a great place to buy special discs and merch from the Festival Flymart. It helps bring friends and families, who may not be disc golf nuts like us, to come and enjoy a day watching AND playing. Patrick will be responsible for creating a fun, music-filled, inviting atmosphere where everyone can play games, win prizes and walk away happier. Here’s some of the new stuff for 2018:
Patrick was the TD of the Pittsburgh Flying Disc Open National Tour event in 2017. The event received high praise from players, fans, and the PDGA. One aspect of the Pro Tour that needed improvement was the course setup and review. In addition to helping to review the course OB, rules and caddy book, Patrick will ensure that the Pro Tour course assets (the truss, the OB walls, the elevated baskets) are setup nice and early so that the players can have plenty of time to practice the course with them in place the days before the tournament begins.
He will also be working closely with the Tournament Directors regarding placement of assets, confirming staff, and helping in anyway he can to make the events run smoother. His experience as an NT TD as well as his detail oriented mindset make Patrick the perfect person to make all of this happen.
Pro Tour League Challenge
Last, but certainly not least, Patrick is going to be bringing the Pro Tour to communities all across the nation. He will be holding events promoting upcoming tournaments as well as regional events at spots between tour stops. He has crafted a plan where not only will events be fun and value driven, they will also benefit the local club, course, and/or store, that helps to make the events happen.
Events will be one round and will include a brief introduction from Patrick who will share some of his experiences from his time on the road with the Pro Tour.
