J-Town Disc Golf Club Meeting
07/08/13 5:00pm-- Meeting #24

Good weather we will meet in the pavilion at Channahon, if not then McDonald's on Jefferson (near 55, in Shorewood next to Ricks RV Center)  I will update the post day-of so you know where to go. 

1)  Financials
2)  J-Town Invitational (Recap)
3)  Handicap Singles League
    a)  Sign-in time
    b)  Courses
4)  Bag Tags
5)  Course Projects
6)  Tournament Pre-Reg
7)  Ice Bowl Prize
8 ) Open Q&A

I hate to speak for Jason (his post and all) but I am sure it has to do with not making the minimum qualifications:

"Rules for USDGC Qualifying:
1)      Must meet all USDGC Performance Flight requirements.
a.      Current PDGA member.
b.      Pass PDGA Official’s Exam.
c.      PDGA player ratings must be at least 875 and comprised by a minimum of 12 PDGA rated rounds between January 1st 2013 and Oct. 1st 2013."

Above listed are only the ones who would have made min qualifications, but all were welcome to play.  Next year we will do a better job explaining everything better..

Thanks again for coming out and taking on the ROPES!! hope to see you next year

Disc golf event aids MorningStar Mission
From staff rEports March 15, 2013 2:56PM

Updated: March 17, 2013 3:04AM

Ninety disc golfers came to play a PDGA-certified event Feb. 9 in Channahon to raise funds for MorningStar Mission Ministries.

The tournament, sponsored by J-Town Disc Golf Club, raised more than $8,000 that will provide more than 3,900 meals and care to those experiencing homelessness. Hall of Famer Gary Lewis joined the event with logo T-shirt and sweatshirts.

J-Town Disc Golf Club was started in the summer of 2009.

The day of the event was brisk with an occasional breeze that made it feel even colder. With the ice on the course it certainly was fitting for an event called the “Ice Bowl.”

PDGA World Champion Frank Grimes was instrumental in starting the partnership with MorningStar Mission for the Ice Bowl. This year the Ice Bowl drew disc golfers as far as Galveston, Texas.

Board members are Ray Hill, Frank Grimes, Jason Poole, Dean Bingham and Dave Kociuba.

WOW JTown thanks a million for all who have committed to play this event!!

We are going to do our best to accommodate everyone who shows up to play. PLEASE PUT A BASKET IN YOUR TRUNK IN CASE WE NEED TO ADD TEMP HOLES.. Spoke to Tom McManus a minute ago and he is planning the scorecards to handle 30 holes.  That's 150 guys possible.. Some clubs are lighter then others so there should be room.. The main idea behind the event is to introduce new players to the different area clubs and a tournament experience for those who attend.  Please keep in mind this may be the first time for a lot of players in attendance so bring loads of patience and great attitudes..this will be a mad house in the AM so please be organized and ready to check in early..

Jason Poole is going to work his magic and add some temps (nothing fancy just routing that makes sense)  for example: We are going to have Plan B 30 holes.. Plan C 32 holes Plan D 36 holes etc etc...
BUT WE NEED BASKETS PLEASE the logistics of pulling this off is rough so please help out if you can.. (running out baskets and tees, etc etc the little things)

This is totally 100% DISContinuum's show, this is their event.. but at the same time I feel like JTown is the home team here so I am requesting that we provide the extra baskets.. we have the least amount of travel involved is all..  ;D We have the club supplies for signs (Dave K can draw quickly :P) extra cards, flags for tees, etc etc... We will make this as seamless as possible to accommodate.. 

Thanks in advance for all the patience and looking forward to a great day of golf and friends!! THANKS AGAIN for the overwhelming replies and support!!
any questions please ask...

the board voted to include 2 CTPs for all at the challenge..

as far as an ace pool goes I always loved the way it's handled up at Sandy Point.. Honors system $1.. after the round announcements are made as to who aced and the players seek out the player to pay up.. simple, effective, and makes for good karma.. you get a chance to say congrats in person, shake a hand, and make a new friend in the process.. if someone is not inclined to pay up chances are they would not have opt'd into an ace pool anyways.. (well that point could be argued but who wants bad karma for any aces going forward, pay up!! :) )

I just spoke to Tom Mcmanus and we will be meeting and organizing over by the ball fields.  (over by the woodsy holes 19-21)  Just concerned with parking spaces for all.. So please park over by the original park district building/ past the sand volleyball/ concession stand/ football field not near the "new" rec building.. please tell a friend so we are all on the same page..
