Axiom will be allowing us access to a limited run of one of their watermelon discs to sell and raise funds for First Flight Presented by Axiom Discs. We will be pre-selling 100 of these discs. More info to follow.
May 23rd & 24th - First Flight Presented by Axiom Discs - Ams only A-Tier
We've added another course this year. Players will play one round each at The Canyons at Dellwood Park, Highland Park, and Channahon Community Park. Total maximum number of players is 216. This tournament filled early last year, and we had to turn people away, so don't wait too long to register.
Players Pack: To be determined. Last year's players pack was worth more than the tournament fee, and our goal is to offer the same great value at this year's tournament. Stay tuned for more info.
Pre-registration is mandatory. We will not be taking walk ups for this tournament. Also, since it's an A-tier, PDGA membership is a requirement. Registration will close on Wednesday, May 20th at 4pm. Of course, if we fill before then, it will close at that time.
Final 9: We will have a final 9 for every division with 12 or more players! The layout has yet to be determined. Check back here for more info at a later date.
Of course, you can also register in person at Aces and Chains, 1706 W. Jefferson St., Joliet, IL 815-207-8874. If you register in person, you save the $2 online registration fee. (You can also mail in your registration to the same address.)
Sorry for the late post. We started Friday Night Lights again two weeks ago and have gotten off to a strong start. 18 players showed up last week! Come on out on Fridays to "see" what all the fun is about...
We close registration at 7:45p and tee off at 8pm each Friday. This coming Friday we will be at Highland Park. Currently, we are switching between Highland and West Park every week. $5 to play, plus two optional $2 (50/50) CTPs, and an optional $1 Ace fund. Ace fund is up to $21 so far.
Come and check it out. More players = more fun!
Glo lights and glo discs are available for purchase...
I'm going to try to get out there tomorrow morning to put flags up for each of the safari tee pads. And Pre-reg will be open until 5pm tomorrow (Sat.) morning. hope to see you all out there on Sunday.
Also, just a reminder, I have 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place trophies for each of the four main Am divisions, and a 1st place trophy for the Pro division. I also have two extra trophies to be used for any age protected or women's division that gets 3 or more participants. If there are less than 3 players in a division, no trophy will be awarded for that division.
Ok, I'm making it official. The Wild West will be a safari round this year. The course will be setup as 18 holes. Some of them will be holes that are a current part of the course. Some of them will be modifications to current holes. And some of them will be completely new holes. The course will be tougher than the 24 hole layout, but fair.
I'm working on the trophies right now. They will, once again, be themed after the Wild West. When I have them done, I will post pics here. I will have first, second, and third place trophies for the 5 main divisions, and first place trophies for any other division that has at least 3 pre-registered players in it.
Registration is up and available at the link above. Please pre-register as it will make the tournament run smoother. If spots are still available, we will be taking walk ups between 8am-9am. There will be no "late fee" for walk ups!
Trust me, you're not going to want to miss this one! The course layout will be a lot of fun.
I was going to nominate Sean Callahan, but you beat me to it. ;?)
I would also like to nominate:
Aaron Studer: Started CSI league, which actively cleans up West Park, and has had several work days out at Dellwood park. Also TD'd at First Flight. Ran another Birdie Bash at West Park this year. Ran J-Town bag tags until early this year.
Kevin Schramm: Started CSI league, which actively cleans up West Park, and has had several work days out at Dellwood park. Also TD'd at First Flight.
Ryan Fancher and Dan Czempinski: Started CSI league, which actively cleans up West Park, and has had several work days out at Dellwood park.
The Wild West will be run as a one day only event this year due to the fact that I got a J O B that will be working me 50+ hours per week, including Saturdays. I have some ideas for this years event that I may share with you later, or I might just surprise everyone. No Three Mile Island this year! Everyone seemed to figure out how to play it last year, so I'm going to switch it up a bit.
Thank you once again to everyone who came out to play at this event. We sold all the players packs, and had a great time at West Park. We also raised $648 toward cement tee pads at West!
