Jason, please sticky so we can make it a bit easier for people to find a place that has disc golf equipment. If anyone knows of more than this, feel free to add it and Jason can edit and compile. MC Sports has nothing but starter packs now, so I didn't add them to the list.

Was talking to John McGowan at iOS 59 (Round Barn) on Saturday and he was telling me about how they are doing a tournament this weekend in order to raise funds for the remaining tee pads. If you can, get up there and support these disc golfers and Indian Oaks Disc Golf Course. More information: https://www.facebook.com/events/671237016237828/?hc_location=stream
Start date: APRIL 2nd, 2013 and will be the same schedule and course as the doubles league, just the night before doubles. (See Doubles Schedule on front page).
Entry fee ($5); optional Ace ($1); optional PDGA sanction ($1); CTPs (2 or 3 CTPs @ $2 each). CTPs will be designated as Prize Fund & Club Enhancements.
The payout will be the top 30% with a minimum of $5 for last cash. $0.50 from each entry fee will pay the hot round of the day.
Players will still have the option of playing leagues as a PDGA Sanctioned event. They will receive official ratings and points.
Handling of non-rated players: If you do not have a PDGA rating, your first 3 rounds at the handicap leagues will be free to establish your handicap. You will only be allowed to participate in the Ace Fund, CTPs, and Bag Tags (Bag Tags will be determined on the scratch score).
Another option to acquire your handicap: if a club officer is willing to play those three rounds outside of league night, they will "sign off" that your scores are valid to use to develop your 3 round minimum for getting your "handicap". After you accumulate more rounds, your rating will be taken from your last 5 rounds.
Frank Grimes, Rob Gibson, and Dean Bingham will be running Handicap League. Jason Poole will be handling the PDGA sanctioning and results.
I don't know Thor's brother, but my heart felt prayers and thoughts are with his family at this terrible, terrible, time. Jimmy Mac let me know at Trinity today that Thor's brother past away recently and the Wake was today. My condolences, Thor.
Didn't know where else to introduce myself, so this thread looked the most likely. My name is Rob, I'm 33 and live in Crest Hill. I play mostly with my 11 year old son, Mason, but like to play with anyone and we both are eager to learn, so would welcome a chance to play with any of you guys (includes any woman too of course!!). I would like to get signed up and actually be a part of the club, but first I think I would like to get to know you all first.
Anyway, I'll look around some and see what is coming up where I can meet some of you guys at a course or something. Hit me up if you would like to play!
