Leagues & Tourneys / 2011 DISContinuum Club Challenge
« on: December 23, 2010, 02:36:55 PM »
Tom McManus posted something on Discontinuum's message board about the upcoming challenge..


"2011 is coming up quickly. Get ready for another team event in March 2011. New location same format.  This event has grown every year. We hope to be able to accommodate 150 players this year."

I know some of you were looking forward to this event again, so I wanted to pass on the heads up. 

Quick review of last years results: (taken from Brett's post)

Team results:

"After the first round, Jtown had the early lead with Discontinuum and the Streamwood team close on their heels. GRABM and Fox Valley Metro rounded out the competition being in fourth and fifth respectively. Fox Valley Metro had the largest team improvement from first to second round, but it was the marked improvement of the players in the lower pool for the Streamwood Disc Golfer's Union that allowed them to pull ahead and win the club challenge for the second year in a row. Congratulations guys.

Top 8 Lower positions + Top 5 Upper positions multiplied by 3 = Team Score

Round 1:
Team Lower Upper Total 
Jtown 118 33 217 
DGC 113 42 239 
SDGU 144 33 243 
GRABM 168 101 471 
FVM 294 139 711 

Round 2:
Team Lower Upper Total 
SDGU 70 50 220 
Jtown 148 42 274 
DGC 174 58 348 
GRABM 128 104 440 
FVM 310 82 556 

Team Final 
SDGU 463 
Jtown 491 
DGC 587 
GRABM 911 
FVM 1267  "

J-Town Disc Golf Club / J Town Member's Meeting?
« on: February 10, 2010, 12:48:48 AM »
So its February 10th, four to six inches of snow, and J Town Disc Golf has just about 120 members!  Minus a few here or there, Tags 1-120 have been handed out.  (Fear not.. more are on order and should be ready to go ASAP.) 

We as board members want to meet and hear from you the members.  We need an idea of how many of you would be interested in showing up to a meeting.   If you know someone who is electronically challenged, please call them up and ask if they would show.  We don't want to over guess, or worse under guess the number of attendees.  We really just want to pick the right room size so please reply to this post and give us your feedback...  (please don't read this the wrong way, it's a great problem to have :D

Another thing is, please offer some expectations from J Town.  This forum is for you to throw out ideas and suggestions as to how to grow, and what direction to sail this boat.   If you are shy then just shoot me or a board member a private message or email. 

jtowndiscgolf@gmail.com is the general club email in case you are bashful.  We can post your idea for you, nameless. 

Let us know...

Thanks for reading!!
