Mick McGowan is having a picnic with a round of Golf, Saturday Dec. 6th. If you played winter league last year it's free. If not a $5.00 donation for beer & pizza he is asking for.11:00am sign up. 12:pm tee off, $10.00 per man. I think it's doubles.
Steve O whacked his motorcycle this evening. On rt. 59 a car didn't see him & they collided. He was released from ER around 10pm. His eye is a concern & fractured something in that area. He returns tomorrow for further conclusion. I'm not sure, but I think his only family is disc golf. I know!, he is a topic of conversation, but he is alone. I ask that one is kind & gives respect to his efforts. I think we are all he has.
The course is pretty muck OK, but needs some touch up, if anyone is interested in helping. The main thing I'd like to get done & need help with is the 10 meter circles. I'd like to do that the week of the tournament. Thanks
Shawn McCarthy is always there when I need him! We're doing an octagon tier on #18's basket. He sees what I'm doing, & not a word is said. then adjusts to the situation. It's like he's in my head. He is awesome!!!
At handicap today, it was raining, with no let to be seen. Eight brave souls wanted to play, & they did. (not me) It was a chilly 63 degrees, & after a 3 hr. round, they returned soaked!!! Hooray guys!!!
I'm working with Thor & Shawn McCarthy, with some sort of steps on #18's fairway. Right now it's the beginning of getting organized. What I have is the saw (love tools) & the will to help out. From what Thor said, it it would be similar to something at Lemon.? I'm not sure about the weather, but it may start some time next week. Shawn, in so many words, says git er dun! We're looking for help. I don't do Facebook, but they do.
I can't say enough about the help Shawn McCarthy gives me. This is NOT the time of year for course upgrades. We spread chips in some key areas for the tournament this week end. Although the water is down, it will take little to have a traffic pattern of mud. So sad for Channahon. Play well people!
The J-Town Ice Bowl is this Saturday, Feb. 8th. Snow is expected Tuesday afternoon into Wednesday morning. I'm not sure what the Park will do, other than the parking lot. The Pavilion & tees will need to be cleaned. If you can help, let me know, that would be Great!!! We have 26 hole sponsors. We also have funds from winter league $589.00 & tags, $600 or $700. Also, about 50 items to raffle. That's a little skewed with 20 coming from Jimmy K's. Haunted Trails gave a $92.00 package, Town & Country a $75.00 value & then two portable baskets. I forgot, Gary & Dana will be giving discs. That will push us to 60 to 65 things to win. Wal-Mart, Target, & locals have donated.
We're looking for feedback on the Tuesday's ace fund. The choices would be one ace fund for both sanctioned & unsanctioned players or separate funds for each. Let someone know what you think, we have until April. I'll ask around too.
