Questions? / Tee Signs at Round Barn
« on: August 21, 2018, 10:48:07 AM »
To the members of J Town Disc Golf Club.
Over the years J Town Disc Golf Club has spent money to help with course improvements.  Highland Park seems to be the main course that gets the most love, which in my opinion is the right course to put money into.    I am looking to start improving Round Barn Farm in Manhattan and the course needs tee signs.   I do understand that the course is not the most popular course but it is a course that J Town uses in singles play, doubles play, tournaments, and casual rounds.   Below is what I have priced out for the cost of the materials.

18 tee signs.
18 signs x $40 = 720
18 -4x4x10 ft #2 pressure treated lumber x $10.17 $183.06
54 bags of concrete x $6.59 = 355.86

The grand total to put the signs in and I will volunteer the labor will be $1,258.92.  Now if you have any ideas on how to do this cheaper I am all ears and willing to work with who ever to get them done as cheap as possible and installed by the end of September.   If you have any questions please feel free to ask questions.

Leagues & Tourneys / Trinity Links TD Report
« on: January 14, 2013, 07:10:33 PM »
All TD reports are in from all of the Trinity Links Point Series.  I will take responsibility for not checking on these and not ensuring they were up.  I had some things going on and just lost track,   Thanks to Dana who got the scores up and did most of the TD report for me I failed to check with the PDGA on the status and after this, next year at all events I will have a computer on site and the scores will be uploaded with in an hour of the round ending.  that is my goal for 2013
Thanks for understanding and again I am sorry for dropping the ball

Leagues & Tourneys / Trinity Links Point Series Event #5 Sept 9th
« on: August 20, 2012, 09:24:33 PM »
Hey Everyone
September 9th, 2012 is going to be the Trinity Links Point Series Event #5.  On Line Registration should be up soon, Lets hope.  all am divisions is still $35 and Open is $55.  on the pdga site you will see $45 for ams and $65 for open but you will get a $10 discount if you are a pdga member.  Make sure you pre register for this event as we will be charging a $5 day off fee for registration that will go into the over all pay out for the point series.  Registration will open at 8:00 am and it will close at 9:00 am with the players meeting being at 9:10 am and tee of to follow shortly after.  this will be two rounds and open will be playing longs and shorts and the am field will play shorts and possibly some mixed holes in the second round, but that has not been decided yet.  Every event has had something new added to the course so I will see what I have in store for you this time. Please pre register for this event when it is up on the pdga site.
Some changes we are gonna make is keeping everyone out of the shed between rounds until all score cards are in and put up on the board.  After you register we are going to ask everyone to exit the shed so we can conserve space and use to to have more flow during registration.  Dave K and Tom M did an awesome job this past weekend with out me there so huge props to them.  You can also pre register with any of us at Leagues on Tue or Wed night. 
If anyone is interested in sponsoring a hole for the final event please let me know or if you would like to donate something for the over all fundraiser again please let me know.  I hope to see everyone out on Sept 9th.

I would also like to thank everyone for participating in this point series and hanging in there with us as we learn and grow on this.  I know it isn't the most smooth ran event's I have run but it is a process.  I also just got a huge order in from discraft and innova so we should have a great selection for you on sept 9th.
