About this project
Have you ever shotgunned a cold beverage on the golf course? If you're a golfer, the answer is yes. Have you ever beer bonged on the course? Chances are, you haven't. Beer bongs have long been considered a serious faux pas on the golf course...until now.
We have created the first ever beer bong in the shape of a full size golf driver. Simply pour a 12 ounce can into the opening at the foot of the club head, then grab the grip and let it rip. Virtually indistinguishable from your actual driver, The Big Beertha stores perfectly in your golf bag. It's a Gentleman's beer bong (as well as a proper Lady's, of course).
The Big Beertha club head is designed to easily hold 12 oz, while the shaft is clear acrylic, allowing onlookers to view the impressive flow of liquid, similar to a traditional beer bong. The shaft will be threaded, and will easily screw into or out of the club head for cleaning purposes.
To achieve our goal and bring The Big Beertha to life, we need to raise $15,000. This minimum goal will cover the cost of creating the necessary tools and setting up the manufacturing process, as well as the initial run, logistics, and assembly. Manufacturing a small number of these units would not be cost effective, but if we reach our goal, we will be able to manufacture enough units to bring the per unit cost down to a reasonable level.
We recently did some EXTENSIVE testing of our prototype on a party bus en route to the Luke Bryan concert. Our findings were pretty simple: The Big Beertha works awesomely, and you don't need to be on a golf course to use it. In fact, we're not sure if there is a better party favor out there. See the video below to review the data:
In addition to the party bus, we had a lot of fun testing our prototype this spring at Edgewood in Lake Tahoe. We want to share these great experiences with golfers and party goers around the world. Did you make a bad shot? A "Beertha" will get the ball flying straight. Didn't clear the red tees? Better take a "Beertha". Hosting a BBQ? Going out on the boat? A beer bong for the Lady? People who roll with The Big Beertha are bound to be the main event at any social gathering. Beerthas all around.
As both lovers of golf and avid outdoorsmen, we urge you to recycle, and enjoy your Big Beerthas responsibly. Please pledge, and thanks for the support! If you like what you see, please share our campaign with friends!
Risks and challenges
In regards to tackling a manufacturing project of this nature, there's always a chance for snags or obstacles. Our background has given us certain advantages to help us avoid these obstacles. Collectively, our team has a Masters in Industrial Technology (manufacturing, industrial processes and materials), as well as degrees in both Business and IT. We have professional experience coordinating and managing manufacturing processes for Fortune 500 companies, as well as Finance and Entrepreneurial experience. We are uniquely suited to successfully deliver this product on time, on budget, while exceeding expectations of quality.
That being said, if challenges do arise we will meet them head on, and do whatever is necessary to remedy the problem. We consider it a privilege to be able to work on this project on behalf of our backers, and will keep their consideration our first priority, every step of the way. Become a backer, and we will ship you a quality product, on time, with the goal of exceeding your expectations.
