WEEK 8 - May15, 2013 First Half #8 West Park - Joliet 24 Holes - Short Tees - Par 72
CONDITIONS Another Picture Perfect Night! The night started out with the temperature around 82 degrees and calm. The SUN was out most of the round. The temp dropped to around 70 by the end of the night. The course is dry but the grass is as long as I ever seen it.
NOTES • Please don’t be discouraged if you’re an AM and had a rough night. Shake it off and try again next week. The more you play and learn from the league’s more experienced players the better your game will evolve. We’ve all been through this stage.
• Paul Ulibarri the 8th ranked player in the world puts a good-old fashion ass whoopin’ on the Pro/Adv field. Paul ends up pulling the Cali card and shoots a fantastic round of 50 ( -22).
• Eric Fredricks & Kyle Greenfield win a close playoff battle to take the top honors. They end shooting a great round of 55 (-17).

Shawn & Jon both make significant jumps in the points standings.They are now both in striking distance of the top four. Thor Batchelor & Josh DeLucio settle for third and take home 25 bucks each.

I take it Paul missed #11. Which other hole did he miss Jesse?
The Grundy County Chamber of Commerce is hosting a golf outing at Nettle Creek Country Club in Morris on Friday, June 21st. The chamber reached out to me to incorporate disc golf into one of the holes at the outing.
The only thing I can come up with is to place a basket about 200 yards along the fairway, then once the golfer has passed the basket with the golf ball, have them stop by the basket and sink a 20-25' putt with a disc before they can proceed to finish the ball golf hole. Whaddya think??
Any other ideas?? Reply with any suggestions.
I did this at a cancer event Kevin. I put a basket between 2 holes at the tee that usually get backed up. I Put the basket about 50 feet and Charged them one dollar a shot. If they made it they won $5. Made about $200 for cancer research. Only two golfers made it. They had a blast and it introduces the game and helps a cause. Good luck and way to go Kevin!
Thanks for asking Jesse. I'm feeling no worse than flat. It seems that I have a hormone dysfunction. I'm still getting hot flashes & meet with an endocrinologist Thursday. That's a hormone Dr. I'm not sure what's up with the brain tumor. My guess is the side effects are minimal like slight headaches, so it's not of great concern at this time. Something is going on, I hope we can find it & treat it. Regardless of the bumps in the road, I'll be moving forward, Randy Moore is watching me
Jesse, Frank is one of the most positive Human Being I have ever met and I feed off his energy. He will beat this tumor because that's who he is. Frank is such an inspiration we can all learn from....I know I have.... Pray on!
I finally go the last of the donations. First I want to say this is about our club & our community, helping others. Every dollar counted, & thanks to all to put us currently in 2ND place with $9,332.00. When that article was written, I mentioned to Terri along with the board we'd be around $9,000.00. I guess she didn't believe me & said over $8,000.00. That's true. I'm not sure if y'all know the impact, but it's a big deal! The first year, $3,559.00, 2ND $5,700, 3rd $8,600.00, & this year $9,332.00. I'm not sure where will end up. It seems top five. Thanks for the post from the Herald Ray. Everyone in our club can brag!
PS Along with all this, I think J-Town won it's first club challenge, you go J-Town!!!
Pretty unreal.... You take that amount times 6 and you get over $55,000 in food for the less fortunate! What a amazing Ice Bowl. Great work Frankie and J-Town crew!
A bomb was dropped on me two weeks ago with brain cancer. Needless to say I've been extremely anxious. Not being contacted by the neurosurgeon, & curious I picked up my records. I have a tumor in my pituitary gland, 1.2 cm, just under 1/2". Reading about it, says it's most likely noncancerous. That's huge! A pituitary tumor is an abnormal growth in the pituitary gland, the part of the brain that regulates the body's balance of hormones. I'm curious if the 2 1/2 years of hormone therapy relates to this tumor? It's interesting how fixing one problem, creates another. Randy Moore knows what I'm talking about. You're support is huge!!! Most will have their family & friends. I'm blessed with the Disc Golf community, plus my family & friends!!!
Anything you need Frankie just ask. Prayers are pouring your way my Brother. Your strength and spirit has carried me through some tough times and you will beat this just like all the other evils you defeated. Friends and family are so important and you are always there Frankie. You are amazing!
Absolutely UNPLAYABLE. Where it's not frozen I was sinking in 2" and sliding around. NO CARTS. On the way out I stopped at the retention pond and cleaned off my boots and pants. Saturday will be a day of attrition.
Still have 4 days to dry up . Mother Nature be nice!
I realize this is early, but I'd like to jump on it for Ill. State. The erosion on the steps are like a handicap ramp. We need sharp flat shovels, & I can put an edge on it, if needed. I'd like Jesse to focus on the tournament, we can get the course ready.
I'll be your water boy again Frankie! Just let me know my friend.
