Hey Jake, found your ID. Aren't you the Jake that helped me out. Although it is a picture ID, I think you're the one that made such a good impression.

A side note first, I'm looking at the posts & it seems I own this part of the message board. Well here's another one, a thank you.
Thanks to you how ever you were involved. Like I already said the goal is to raise money (fundraiser). To have a tournament you need players & that raises money. Not all that give, give money, therefore the raffle & that raises money.
Just so you know,I have had NO connection with the Mission before last year. It started with supporting with the Northern Illinois Food Bank. My comment to that is the locals may not be familiar with that name. I knew Morning Star is a brand name in Joliet & it may be easier, with that thought, to get donations. I think it was true, we'd have $300.00 maybe. I don't think anyone in Joliet knows about Northern Illinois Food Bank.
Thanks again J-Town.
I put this here for hopefully for more attention.
So far with the tournaments that have turned in their donations, we're 3rd, behind Tulsa, who raised $5,643.00 & had 215 players. It would be a disappointment not to get another $45.00 & get ahead of Tulsa. I realize I may be the only one disappointed. I'm going to the Mission Monday at 1:00 pm so if I can meet you, let me know.
Morning Star has a blog about us.I don't know who reads it but it gives exposure to J-Town. Probably more important, it'll reach people that we couldn't. This expands on what Gary said before the second round.
They are in numeric order. I was able to contact some & I'll get those items to them. I'm hoping we can meet at doubles. Send me a personal & we'll figure it out.

If you've been following the posts this week, you will also have noticed the people that helped. I want to add what a pleasure it was today. The work my fellow board members was outstanding!
I also want to make note of the respect Terri said she got from the disc golfers.
The Herald News was out today. The Sunday paper reaches 39,000. town was in there a few weeks ago. I think Dean was responsible for that. If it's put in it's more exposure & good PR. Just think about our club is helping an organization that has been in Joliet for over 100 years. They get a huge donations from the community & we're part of that. Our club will be noticed for doing such a good thing.
This was a rough week with 20" of snow & we rose to the occasion. The J-Town board put the frosting on the cake.
Thanks everyone, it's a good thing we did.
PS The scores were up before most left the parking lot.
As some of you know we're having a fundraiser, Ice Bowl 02/05/11. What I think most if not all would agree, is to have footing from the tees. At these warmer temperatures & play on the tees. the footprints turn to ice. The tees are going to be cleaned, as needed for our Ice Bowl on a regular basis. The short story is Shawn Harmon, Flash, John Marron, let me help on 1 tee.
There is snow in the forcast this week, & I may need help with the tees, let me know if you can help. It may or may not be needed. From experience, I can count on me.
The formula is thus
1 for $1.00
5 for $6.00
15 for $10.00
30 for $20.00.
70 for $40.00 This is not exclusive to disc golf players.
On the high end is $100.00 cash & Innova Travel Basket. So far there is around $1,425.00 in raffle items.
See Ice Bowl sponsors for details.
To date it seems I'm the lone ranger in getting donations for the Ice Bowl. Last year we had CTP's as a bonus n/c. This is a fundraiser for an organization that's helped people in our community for over 100 years. It's life blood depends on local donations.
Everything I've collected will be raffled, with a $100.00 Grand Prize. I discussed this with Thor & he agrees. We feel that winning something is a bonus. My effort for this event started Thanksgiving, my son reminded me. I've driven countless miles & spent as many hours, not only to promote our club, but for a worthy cause. It will give you a better chance to win something in the raffle. It's around 40 right now. For those of you that disagree, beat the bushes, your efforts can be ctps.
I want to give kudos to Dave K. & Scott Coyne. They overheard me asking for support, & came up to me & donated. Others like Matt Coyne & Shawn Harmon are always there, always. I'm disappointed in some & if the shoe fits, wear it. If you don't believe in the cause, believe in the club!!!
Well.............that's two hours of my life!
