Leagues & Tourneys / The Wild West - August 17th - Pro C/Am B-tier
« on: July 15, 2014, 05:47:36 PM »
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.

24+ holes per round. Maximum of 96 players (4 per box). $35 for Ams, $50 for Pros.

Also, don't forget to support JD's event - "Bring your own trilogy!" This will be held at Trinity Links after the Trilogy Tee Pad Challenge. You can bring your three favorite discs from any manufacturer for his event. Some proceeds from this event will also go towards tee pads at West Park.

More info here:  https://www.facebook.com/BringYourTrilogy

Support the sport you love! Let's blow the roof off!

There are only 14 spots left as of this morning. If you are planning to play, I would highly recommend pre-registering soon.

My thanks to everyone who has already registered for supporting this fund raising effort! As I have mentioned to many of you, Gary Lewis will probably be redesigning the course. Tee pads will not go in until after the redesign (for obvious reasons.) I have a special savings account for these funds so they will be available at that time.

We also have 7 paid tee pad sponsors so far:

1.) Sooper Lube - 1111 W. Jefferson St., Joliet, IL
2.) Basket Cases Disc Golf
3.) World Famous Bob, and Michael Walsh
4.) Aces and Chains Disc Golf, 1706 W. Jefferson St., Joliet, and 324 W State St., Suite 100,  Geneva (4 tee pads)

My thanks to each of these generous sponsors, and all those to come. Please support each of these businesses, and thank each individual or group when you see them! I will be soliciting businesses for sponsorship until I have enough funds for all tee pads.

Best of luck to everyone playing the Ropes today!

Thanks so much for your support! I'll hold a spot for which ever one of you shows up. Lol.

So far, 24 players have already signed up. I ordered a total of 72 players packs, which are due in tomorrow. However, you will not be able to get your players pack until the morning of the tournament (for obvious reasons.) The discs provided are the as yet unreleased Shield, Claymore, and Thief.

Hope to see everyone there!

I may have some time tomorrow morning to work on the course. Can I get an update on what still needs to be done?

For anyone who's tried to register in the last few days, there was an issue with the website which should be cleared up now. Please try again, and if you have any issues, post here or give me a call at the shop. 815-207-8874. Thanks!

Do you know what is the last day we can register?

There is no cutoff date to register. I will probably close pre-registration early the night before, but I am accepting walk ups. Sign ups will be limited based on the number of players packs I order. I won't know how many until we get much closer.

4/19 - 2 hours & 30 min.

First Flight, the first A-Tier that has ever been held in the Joliet area, was a success! We had a great time all weekend, culminating in a great show put on by the top 4 advanced players in the ďFinal 9Ē holes at Round Barn Farm. Thank you to everyone who came out to play, everyone who went to flymart, the players party, and who came out to watch the Final 9!

I have a lot of people to thank.

First and foremost, I canít say enough good things about my TDís. Aaron Studer, Kevin Schramm, Paul Kenny, and Mike Kursell all did an outstanding job, and went above and beyond the call to make this tournament a success. Without them, this tournament would never have been possible. Please shake their hand and share your positive thoughts with them when you see them. They worked hard all weekend!
Iíd also like to thank Frank Grimes and Shawn McCarthy for their course maintenance work at Channahon. My apologies to Frank for sending 144 players through the course at this early date. As I mentioned on Facebook, I will not be giving that early of a date to the PDGA as an option next year, even if itís the third option.
And hey, thanks to Terry Miller, the DG Guy for coming out to video tape the tournament! Terryís a great guy. I saw him helping vendors at the flymart, in addition to his videotaping duties. Check out his footage of the tournament on his You tube blog. First dayís highlights can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xIXx2gouBUQ&list=UU_VFGL2488ElJvThosFxaRQ
Below is the complete list of people who helped out at the tournament. My sincere thanks to each and every one of you. Itís great to be part of such a helpful community of disc golfers! Hopefully, I donít forget anyone!
