Leagues & Tourneys / Re: First Flight - Ams only A-Tier - March 29th & 30th
« on: February 26, 2014, 08:55:40 PM »
"I can help with Channahon. Spot where needed & the 10 meter circles. I just need the paint & help. I'm going to the gym, trying to get back in shape, but some simple things are difficult, like breathing on the treadmill. Weights on a machine are not an issue, & riding a bike isn't a problem. So, maybe my hero, Shawn McCarthy, or others will give me a hand with that task."


Thanks Frank! I know I can always count on you to help at Channahon.

Anyone want to give Frank a hand with the circles the week before the tournament?

I would not miss out on a chance to hang with Frank   :D. I'm in!
That's GREAT Shawn!!! I'll be in touch.

Thanks for running this A tier.


Yes of course, they will be 10 meter circles.

I found this stat interesting & thought I'd pass it on. The Mission served 151,503 hot meals in 2013.That's 415 a day on average. That blew my socks off!

All signed up.  This is a cause I think every player in the area can get behind.  :D
Can you fill me in on the cause? Is it a fundraiser?

Lost & Found / Re: Found on 14
« on: February 10, 2014, 08:37:49 PM »
I found an orange Innova driver on hole 14 during the second round at the Ice Bowl. Not sure what driver it is, looks like it's marked "BB". Let me know if it is yours, describe the stamp to me. Only the initials TM on the rim.

-Tim
A disc was turned in at the Ice Bowl that wasn't claimed. I think baash was written on it. I looked briefly tonight but didn't see it. The good news is, it's near the top. Anyone that has looked in my car knows what I mean.

Aaron Studer, runs bag tags, has been collecting ctp's for a year, Mick & Mike, winter doubles have also been collecting. A huge thanks you guys!!! It's Awesome that we give back to our community.
I can't say enough about the support to our fundraiser, it's huge!!! If you think about it, 14" of snow on the ground & snowing, 15 degree high temp. $905.00 in raffle revenue with players & a team filled with spirit. What we have so far is over $7,000 & I still have promises still not in. A big part of the funds was tags, & Aaron Studer, $650.00! That's a big deal donation!!! Way to go Aaron & the bag tag faithful's. It was nice to see the group of guys that played tags. I think it was about Aaron. He did a nice job! It's not a record, but $7,000.00 plus, to help our community, is beneficial. This time of year, with Thanksgiving & Christmas over, it makes for a lean time for them.

What up J Town!?

I just signed up for this weekend.  I also just signed up for the PDGA, and I made a $50 donation to the Ice Bowl.  Just make sure Frank knows!

Do we need the tees and paths to be cleaned?

I may possibly be able to get out there tomorrow after work.

Lemme know!

Every thing is coming along nicely. Kevin Macuiba helped with the pavilion. Steve Slater made a path to the baskets with his snow blower, quite a lot of work. The tees are clean. I'm meeting Ryan Fancher tomorrow, he made the sponsor signs. Chrissy Brown, from Morning Star Mission, is on track. She'll be there at 8:00am with coffee & hot chocolate. I wonder if she should be there a little earlier? Gary is all set. Thanks for the offer to help along with you donation Dave K.

Leagues & Tourneys / Re: Highland A Tier?
« on: February 04, 2014, 08:40:50 AM »
My bad. For some reason I get these mixed up with Discatchers. The baskets I have are actually Chainstars, so they will match what Gary has. Been trying to reach him for over a week now. I also have the sign from hole 4 at West. A customer brought it in saying that he caught some kids vandalizing it and took I away from them. He left it with me to get it back to Gary, or the park district. I'll keep trying to reach him.
Gary will be at the Ice Bowl this Saturday. You can talk to him then.

When the time comes, I'd be more than happy to donate a few baskets to get Highland up to snuff. I currently have three Discatchers that I would donate. And I'm sure I could buy a few more to help out.

It would be great to get this done in the next year or two. I do plan to expand First Flight, the A-tier I'm running, to include the Pros, and I would prefer to run one or two of their rounds at Highland.

So count me in! Please let me know if/when this is happening and I will participate in whatever way is needed.
You need to talk to Gary, he has chainstar baskets. I'm a helper, & will give input as needed.

Thanks for getting back to the post Frankie. That's great to hear that Gary is working on it. Only bad thing is that I just got ankle surgery and will not be able to play the Ice Bowl. So sad, but my bros should be there Frankie.

Anthony
That is sad. The positive is it's winter. Unless you have to shovel snow from your driveway. That get's a little testy. Hopefully you can heal up for the summer. I don't except it, but if you want to give something to the Mission, that would be appreciated.
