    The BTGO: A close friend of the classic BOGO (Buy One, Get One), this award solves all of your “What to get the sports fan that has everything” problems. For the price of three autographed copies of the printed book, you get a fourth. And all are shipped directly to the lucky recipients of your choice.

    The Triple-Threat Package: You get the autographed print copy, the ebook AND a full-color 18”x 24” limited edition “It’s Game Time Somewhere” poster. But this poster isn’t just a sheet of paper – it’s a game itself. Imbedded in the poster are stunning (OK, maybe just eyebrow-arching) glimpse photos taken from 48 different IGTS Tour locations, each of which portrays a different sport being played. Here’s the kicker: The alert reader has no doubt noted that there were 50 different sports covered during the Tour. Sooo…if, any time within 30 days (or so) of receiving your poster, you email me with the names of the two IGTS Tour sports that are not depicted, I’ll bump you up to the $150 package described directly below.

    The Coaching Staff Package: In addition to one each of all the goodies described in the lower-priced packages, this option comes with your name (or that of a friend or family member) listed in the book, on a separate acknowledgements page dedicated solely to these Kickstarter backers. This package is limited to 14 people, partly because I want to use a large typeface for this…but mostly because that’s my favorite number.

    The “Just Take Over The Whole Darn Story, Why Dontcha?” Package: In the book, I describe meeting a whole bunch of friendly, helpful people, many of whose names I never caught. With this package, you can turn one of these anonymous characters into someone…nonymous, maybe? I will collect some information from you and then write your character into the final manuscript of the book before it goes into production. Immortality will result. As will the heightened possibility of attracting groupies, which will intensify upon your receipt of a tidy package containing print book, ebook, poster, T-shirt and hoodie. This one's limited to 4, because…well, because.

    The Customized Walkabout: I had mine, and now you can have yours. If you choose this reward, I will create for you a Sports Mini-Walkabout of up to one week in duration. I’ll work with you to design a personalized multi-event entertainment smorgasbord of quasi-epic proportions…and then I’ll handle all the arrangements. I’ll even go with you if you’d like. It can be within your own regional backyard, or if you are willing to spring for your travel costs, it can be anywhere in the continental U.S. Since I have a head full of ideas and friends in Medium-To-Sort-Of-High Places, I’m pretty confident I can deliver an experience that falls within the “Unforgettable” category. And oh BTW – you also get one of each physical item discussed in the other Rewards descriptions.
