So the winner for our first ever, beta test Polar Bear Classic is Jerry Lapinski with a total score of 55!
So with the lowest score from the tournamet being 55, the highest score we recorded was a respectable 107. Now that we recieved a few more score cards from your emails we got to figuring out the pars for each hole:
Hole One: 5, Hole Two: 4, Hole Three: 3, Hole Four: 4
Hole Five: 3, Hole Six: 3, Hole Seven: 4, Hole Eight: 5
Hole Nine: 4, Hole Ten: 3, Hole Eleven: 4, Hole Twelve: 4
Hole Thirteen: 5, Hole Fourteen: 2, Hole Fifteen: 4
Hole Sixteen: 3, Hole Seventeen: 4
Bad news, we were contacted by Putt-Putt franchise and we've been informed that we are currently infringing on their trademark. Because of this we're going to have to rebrand ourselves but this won't get in the way of anything else.
Urban Put Put wants to thank everyone who's supported us on kickstarter and came out to the Beta Test - Polar Bear Classic we had back on December 1st. The event was awesome for us and from the feed back we got from you guys Urban Put-Put was a success. We had a ton of players come by and play our courses and gave us some great feed back on what we did right and we need to fix.
Some of the feed back we got from the tournament attendees was pretty great.
"Simplicity Belies the Challenge!" - Hole 3
"shelves for beverages at tee boxes would be nice, also some seating"
"Love the bikes and the grass/cement combo" - Hole 12
"One of my favorites, very simple and love the couch!" - Hole 2
"Hole numbers on score sheet"
"Hole needs to be more level, ball always comes back" - Hole 9
"Good hole, need to know your angles" - Hole 7
"Nice Graffiti" - Hole 13
"Needs bumpers on the end" Hole 4
"Love the concept, love the execution, keep up the good work!" - Hole 5
"Was really fun! Thank you!"
Seeing 100 backers this morning has been something I've been waiting for since we put up our Kickstarter 11 days ago.
Knowing that there are 100 people that care about this project enough to back it themselves is really amazing and also reminds us at UPP that it is much more imperative that we don't fudge it up in the days to come. With roughly two weeks until the opening day Polar Bear Tournament we're clocking in extra hours to make sure everything is perfect... Well as perfect as a recycled, urban miniature golf course can be.
As with many of the projects on this site, the drive to donate to a project once it's already reached the stated goal tends to wither away for awhile, but don't let that discourage anyone unsure about donating to this crazy project of ours, the students have been putting an insurmountable amount of time and money into this project from paying for concrete, turf, and crazy stuff like buying junked cars.
We're hoping that by the KS deadline we'll have around $6,000 in donation to reimburse the sculpture class for their costs on this project for the enjoyment of Detroit.
