If you're planning on playing Sunday you might want to preregister today.
There are only 18 spots left as of this morning.

Sunday is full.

Are those course Par 4's, or event par 4's because of the length?
They are par 4s because of length/difficulty.  That's the score we expect the average player to get on that hole.  If you look at the last page of the course booklet, you will see a difficulty rating for each hole.  That's the difficulty of achieving that par based on the results of the last tournament we hosted using this layout (1 being the most difficult hole to get par on, 20 being the easiest).

will there be discs for sale at the T  ?
Gary Lewis will have a ton of merch out there for your shopping convenience.

Reserved for Questions.

Have you ever wanted to play the USDGC but couldn’t get an invite?  Have you ever wanted to play Winthrop Gold or at least a similarly set up course but don’t want to travel all the way to SC?  Here’s your chance.  We’ve re-designed Mokena’s 27 hole course into 18 holes, added 2 temporary holes and laid out over 6600 feet of rope.  The result, a 20 hole, 8427 foot, par 68 challenge.  In addition, we are going to determine who will represent IL in this year’s USDGC Performance Flight.

Hey, i registered online for intermediate women last Sunday and it still hasn't shown up, but my credit card has been charged.  Not sure what's going on.  My name is Lindsay Truesdale #45902 if that helps!

Please note that there is both a Global Event and a Local Event.  What you registered for online was the global portion (Participants List).  Unfortunately, the PDGA does not notify us of who signs up for the global portion of this event and has not put up the online pre-reg for the local portion of the event.  I have since gone through their list and added everyone to our list.

That being said, all players will still need to sign-up for the local event on Saturday ($20 for Pro, $15 for Am).  There is not a non-PDGA member fee for this event. 
I have updated the original post to be more clear about the fees.

How was West Park last night? Was it dry and did you have enough daylight with just 18 holes?

Other than the creek, the course was about as dry as it gets.  We finished with plenty of daylight left (skipping holes 6-11).
