Lost & Found / I'm looking for Dan from Deerfield Const.
« on: January 20, 2011, 09:21:08 PM »
I doubt that anyone how to get in touch with Dan. My hope is he reads our message board.
His company made a generous donation for our fundraiser. The check was made out to J-Town disc golf & not to Morning Star Mission.
He's lost to me & I hope he can be found. If I'm in the wrong spot Jason Poole will make it right.
Let me know how I can meet up with you Dan.

J-Town Ice Bowl / Donations for J-Town Ice Bowl
« on: January 05, 2011, 05:50:49 AM »
Some years ago, I think 5, I was made aware about the Ice Bowls to help needy people. I thought how cool is that. What a statement that gives to the local community that disc golf is more than people out there playing with their pants half way down their butts.
I was glad that the J-Town board agreed to have this fund raiser. It not only helps others, but says something about our club in a positive way & disc golf.
Morning Star Mission has been in Joliet over a hundred years. Only 12% goes to administrative costs. That leaves 88% for programs. They don't get government aid & rely on donations.
I'm asking for donations, even if it's $10.00. $2.05 cares for one person. They run a tight ship & cherish every $1.00 given. Playing in the tournament will also be helpful, a portion of the registration goes to the Mission.
Another thing I discovered as of 01/14/11 they qualify to support displaced veterans along with skilled training. The first in the United States. Your support helps people that need help. Bums & freeloaders are not admitted. Tours are welcome to see what you're donating to. Like I've said, over 100 years & an icon for the Joliet area.

Has it been reported there's a basket missing. If not I'll contact the park or Gary, or both.

Thank You's / Jason Poole/ Spread Sheet
« on: December 28, 2010, 09:51:17 PM »
 I don't Jason would want the credit but here's the story.
I'm listing the Ice Bowl sponsors & gifts as I get them. Rather than make a new list every time I get sponsors, I'm modifying the current list.When I go in there it's a cluster f*#k. Notice below. The time it takes to make that readable is huge, if not forever. Jason made a spread sheet & instructed me how to use it. It's an extreme time saver. Thanks Jason!

Shoot The Breeze / Ice/Snow Tees at Channahon
« on: December 19, 2010, 05:29:51 AM »
I was working on the tees yesterday. What we have is light snow on top, crunchy snow in the middle & ice on the bottom. I was thinking about working on them after league today. I realize snow is in the foecast this week & I'll deal with that as needed.

Leagues & Tourneys / Donations from Patrick & Tafe
« on: December 14, 2010, 09:42:37 PM »
I need you're addresses, I have receipts for each donation. I do this routinely so I don't get bogged down at the end. This is all passed on to the Mission so they can express their gratitude. Cash is the prime gift. For those who want to give a donation of $10.00 is helpful. A hundred people is $1,000.00.

J-Town Ice Bowl / Ice Bowl 2011 Note
« on: December 09, 2010, 05:33:49 PM »
If you're interested in the Ice Bowl you need to check every so often. What i did last year is made a new post& I think it may have been a little confusing & not neat. There will be one post & I'll edit it as the sponsors come in. I'll be cleaning up what's there now, the Sox, Cubs note & until I get the check from Blaine I'll erase that. I'm sure Blaine is good for it. It's extremely time consuming to edit it with the rows etc. Jason Poole might know what I'm talking about. Any way one post & it will be edited as the sponsors come.

J-Town Ice Bowl / J-Town 2011 Ice Bowl / Morning Star Mission
« on: December 03, 2010, 09:28:44 PM »
At our last meeting we agreed to have our 2nd Ice Bowl, Feb. 5th 2011. Morning Star Mission is an impressive organization that supports the homeless & needy in the Joliet area. Many of us may not know what it's like to have no place to turn & the Mission picks them up. A tour of their work can be set up if your interested.
Saturday, Feb 5th, 2011, is the tournamrnt date. Help support the down & out in our community. I think we were 12th or 14th last year in our donation.

Lockport is looking sweet. There are hole changes, chip spread around, general maintenance. It looks real nice. It's going to be interesting with how the water is going to affect #15. Good work guys!!!

« on: November 11, 2010, 06:08:00 AM »
I know most of us watch television. Foundation for a better lire makes commercials about love, respect, sharing, caring for others, hope, honesty, friendship. If you get a couple of minutes do a search, foundation for a better life, you can look u-tube videos. the videos are heart warming. They can also be see in commercials on TV.

Shoot The Breeze / Fund Raising for Channahon
« on: November 06, 2010, 09:51:52 PM »
Thor's glow golf fund raiser for concrete tees make me think what I can do for funds at Channahon. Watching him tonight made me put myself in his position. I'm sure i could do it, but it's way out of my comfort zone.
To give an example that may appear insignificant, as far as end result, I have $142.00 with material, painting J-Town on #4. The club would refund my total cost but I'm only asking for $75.00 for the two gallons of stain. Thirty dollars was my mistake for picking the wrong colors. That's just one example.
I'm lookig for input. One thought I had is raffle tickets. They would accumulate over a certain dollar amount, & then be raffled. Another thought is having  a fund raiser tournament. I'm looking for suggestion.

Thank You's / Timbers Channahon #2
« on: November 04, 2010, 07:50:02 PM »
It's been over two years that the timbers were displaced. Today the wall is back. Shawn Harmon was huge help. It was a pleasant suprise, it made for the disappointment the day before. Thanks Shawn!
Shawn is also going to help me tomorrow. You'll need to come out to winter league & check that out. I think it will be obvious, we'll see.
I got a call from Bangham but we had it under control. Thanks for the offer Dean.

Without starting a new post this is an update. Shawn suggested putting rocks in front of the timbers so we did. It looks nice but I'm not sure how it will function after the water runs.
