I lost a stained wooden mini with a Dancing Bear engraved in it. It was lost on hole #2 about 40 feet out at the 4 or 5 oclock position facing basket. That mini is special to me and I will reward the finder with a choice of disc or a nice steak dinner! Please post if found.
Franks achievements were not only in the J-Town area. Frank managed to venture off to Eagle Ridge Park in Oswego and put in some high quality tee boxes and to be chased around by the Park District for removing stumps lol lol. So glad to see such positive results for you Frank.
Your in my prayers Frank. As strong as you are I think your results will be good. You understand what your up against the rest of your life and your positive hard working attitude will prevail. As you told me, it is what it is.
Going to go play this course and called up Jon to get some info on the course. Found out they are working on getting another course in so they can be in contention for 2013 Worlds. They would play the 4 courses at Lemon Lake and the two at Rogers Lakewood. Looking forward to playing this course!
Hole 9 is mine Grimes, now take your Italian Sausage fingers off of it. All i want from you is about a couple thousand rocks to line both sides of the fairway. Then clear out about another 75 feet behind and slightly to the right of current basket, and build around a 20 ft mound to put the basket on top of. After you do all that put my name on it, oh and by the way thanks in advance. One last request i forgot about frank. The large tree just left and in front of the tee that blocks big anhyzer shots, i need that removed. Twenty years ago that thing was the size of a 5 ft bush and was quite easy to throw over. I hope your passion can accomodate my needs brother, otherwise i'll have to find someone else to do all the work so i can take ownership of my hole. Let me know how long this will all take, i was thinking you could have all this done by thanksgiving.
You crack me up Flash. What I'll do is put thay on the to do list. Short term I'll make a sign & stick it in the ground with your name on it. I'll stick it on the right of the short tee pad. We have to think of a name, it used to be Harmon's Hill.
Congrats J-Town! Look on page 45 of the Discgolfer Magazine. You came in 14th place in money donations for the 2010 Ice Bowls. Pretty good considering there were 222 Ice Bowls last year. Year 2010 raised the most money since the Ice Bowls began in 1987. Good job Frank and the rest of the well oiled J-Town machine!
I know Frank is part of the great J-Town Crew but I must give Frank a special Thank You for the heart and soul he continues to put into Community Park. Not to mention the 10s of thousands of dollars he spends of his own money so disc golfers can enjoy themselves on a mother nature of a course. Frank is also a very caring person and he has helped me personally at the same time he is battling cancer. Can't say enough about how lucky I am to have Frank as my friend! Keep up the good work buddy.
Our Park District would pull the baskets if we went against a safety issue more than once. We have been warned. Disc Golf doesn't bring in revenue for the Park District so it's real easy for them to pull the plug on disc golf. That would actually save them money by doing that. Discers must be real careful. We are almost always in a losing situation. Revenue would change their minds but can't see that happening soon.
Joe is a bomber! Just overthrew #16s basket at Eagle Ridge Wednesday. He also shot two rounds at -6 with no bogies in both those rounds! He tore me up on my home turf. Good shooting Joe! We missed Franks presence as he is a busy busy man. See you next time Frank!
