WEEK 3 - April 15, 2015
First Half #3
Trinity Links, Lockport, IL

TEES
18 Holes - Par 54-Short Tees
Skipped hole #15 because of flooding.  Instead we played a temp hole to the practice basket called 4b. We’re still not sure where 4a went. Better Call Tom M. A 270 ft hole to the practice basket from the east side of the east building. If you didn’t make it over the fence it was OB and you had to retee.
 

CONDITIONS
The temperature started out around 65 degrees with clear skies. The wind was very strong at around the 15-17 mph range, with gusts easily around 25 mph. All water area levels were up. The course was pretty dry for this time of year.

NOTES
• Once again The Swamps of Trinity ate many discs, but at least no one fell in this time.

• Thanks guys for letting us use the Trinity Links club house for registration. Although it was a pretty nice night it’s great to not have to worry about the weather elements. This makes a huge difference when getting things ready. Every course needs one.

• It was great to see everyone again. We had many new faces that we hope will continue to show up each week. We also hope that the familiar faces that weren’t there will make their way back and be part of this year’s league.
We miss you!

• Kevin “Kid K” Macuiba & Izak ‘IMAC” McDonald win the playoff against some of the best to take the top honors. They shoot fantastic round of 42 (-12) to capture the victory.

• It’s easy to say “Team Youngsters” or Team Future” or something along those lines won big last night. But the reality is that the new generation of top disc golfers in the Joliet area is here and their here to stay. It’s so damn cool to see so many guys in their teens and early twenties with so much ability.
This generation could be the best we’ve seen in a long time or maybe ever! Older guys just suck it up and face the reality!

• Kory “El Nino” Seddon & Joe “Kool” Kolar easily take down the Am/Nov Division. They shot a great round of 46 (-8).   

• DJ draws Cali and ends up with the worst possible partner. Just kidding Darrin! They (he) end up shooting a unbelievable  round of 54. Nice game!

• Hey Tom M. I think guys are still trying to find hole 4a. What’s with that?

• Shout out to Tracy for getting the payouts ready for us. It’s so nice to have everything ready to roll once you come back in after the round.

• Shout out to the Taco Lady!

• Shout out to Twan on his perspective of how the night unfolded.

• Dana Vicich is running the Swinging Bridge Open 2015 this Sunday, April 19 in Pontiac. More info go here:

• Steve Rachan is having a doubles tourney fundraiser this Saturday April 18 at Highland Park. Check it out here:

WEEK 2 - April 8, 2015
First Half #2
Round Barn, Manhattan, IL


TEES
All Red Baskets except hole #4 & #5
18 Holes - Par 54
OB- Only the water and on the asphalt path were out.
 

CONDITIONS
Gale Force Winds all night! Well that’s what it seemed liked. The winds were in the 17 mph range and gusts were easily in the 20-25 mph range. Discs were flying in places they weren’t suppose to be, all night. The temps were in the low 50s and dropped into the 40s by the end of the night, It felt like a winter night! The course is pretty much dried out but a real tough night for disc golf.

NOTES
• It was great to see everyone again. Again we had many new faces that we hope will continue to show up each week. We also hope that the familiar faces that weren’t there will make their way back and be part of this year’s league.
We miss you!

• Please don’t be discouraged if you’re an AM and had a rough first night. Shake it off and try again next week. The more you play and learn from the league’s more advanced players the better your game will evolve. We’ve all been through this stage. We’ll see you next week.

• Al “Lefty” Hermosillo & Anthony “Twan” Rodriguez  take the victory in the Pro/Adv Division. Team Vatos Locos played very well together considering the wind conditions they shot a unreal round of 44 (-10). 

• Aaron “Lets Cook” White & Mike “This Is My Year” Eichorst take care of business in the Am/Nov Division. They shot a great round of 48 (-6) and jump up quickly in the point standings. 

• The Red Barn Lagoon was eating discs all night. The Monster 250 foot hole #3 proved to be beast for many players.
 
• Nice Black Ace on hole #12 Shawn Story! Now you have to double the ace pot. A new rule we made up last night.

J-TOWN DOUBLES WEEK 1 RESULTS 2015

WEEK 1 - April 1, 2015
First Half #1
Shorewood Park-Shorewood


TEES
Short Tees 18 Holes - Par 54
 

CONDITIONS
The night started out at around 74 degrees with clear skies. Winds were strong at around the 10-15 mph with gust into the 20 mph range. With a dry March most of the ground was dry or a little tacky. Temps dropped into the high 60s by the end of the night with the winds still holding steady. It was a perfect night for disc golf.

NOTES
• It was great to see everyone again. We had many new faces that we hope will continue to show up each week. We also hope that the familiar faces that weren’t there will make their way back and be part of this year’s league.
We miss you!

• Please don’t be discouraged if you’re an AM and had a rough first night. Shake it off and try again next week. The more you play and learn from the league’s more advanced players the better your game will evolve. We’ve all been through this stage. We’ll see you next week.
 
 
• Steve “Friday Nights’ Rachan and Cody “The Brook” Schmook take the easy playoff victory on hole #1 to claim the first night of 2015 in the Pro/Adv Division. Considering the wind conditions their round of 38 (-16) was extremely impressive. They make the first big jumps on the leader board!

• Aris “The Greek” Pashos and Mike “Got Game” Cembala completely crush the Am/Nov Division by four strokes. They shot a very impressive 41(-13). They make the first big jumps on the leader board for the 2015 season.

• Not On My Watch! Po-Po says No-No on the parking last night. The police were issuing tickets to anyone parked on the grass on the West side of the parking lot. We were able to get most cars out but a couple weren’t so lucky. If the parking lot is full just keep parking along the street. One of the Park Board members told me we can park on that cul-de-sac where the houses are but don’t block any driveways and don't drive on the road through the park to get there. You have to drive around.

• Shout out to Patrick Johnson of Aces and Chains with the CTP donation of a Air Force Champion Thunderbird.
http://www.acesandchains.com

• Shout out to Tom Matesevac for donating his sausage for a CTP.

• Shout out to Anthony Rodriguez for moving several cars out of the grass while we still played the round

• Shout out to Jose Herrera for holding on to our CTP markers that were left out at last year’s picnic by Darrin!

• Ryan “Dr. Pepper” Barcas hits an ace on a CTP hole!

Thanks, I’m honored to receive the nomination, but at this time I’m unable to accept. Although I’m still looking forward to helping out when I can. Good luck to all the other nominees.
