Your Help is Needed to Get Disc Golf Recognized.

On June 5, 2002 the online sports community of eTeamz had 915,182 teams registered. Imagine how many individual people that is. PAR-TWO Disc Golf Society's website is located on the eTeamz's servers. eTeamz conducts a contest by which points are awarded for activities on the website. PAR-TWO is usually ranked in the top 500 sites and one month we were even in the top 50 sites.

It took me months to get eTeamz to add disc golf as a sport category on their servers, but I finally got it. My next goal is to prove to eTeamz and it's millions of users that disc golf is a respectable sport. This is where I need your help, I want to be ranked in the top 10 sites EVERY month. A lot of people will see us there and that will promote disc golf.

To achieve this every member of this newsletter would need to visit the site daily, you could set your start page to http://www.eteamz.com/par-two/. Just visiting the site gives us 11 points. Visit the "Tips and Drills" section and that's 50 more points (only once a day). For every different page you visit we earn another point, up to 30 pages per day.

eTeamz also award three prizes each month. If we happen to be one of the winners I plan on putting the winnings back into the growth of disc golf, I could hand out discs at the course, sponsor an event, buy a basket or two for a park to get a taste of disc golf or giveaway discs to
the users that got us there.
