I want to thank those who have contributed to help me with funds for Channahon. Mike, Mick, and Carbo first recognized the financial need in beautifying Channahon and were first to help with league money, which they've done for the past three years. Most recently and although it's not summer league, Jesse and Darrin donated the fundraiser money to me at the Channahon tournament. Other years Randy Moore and Al Hermosillo have kicked in, as well as nameless others. Gary Lewis has contributed money in the past, and he, with the help of others, have devoted their time and labor in getting all of the area courses ready for tournaments. To all of these people, including those whom I have not named, I thank you for the effort you contribute to making J-Town Disc Golf a great club.

I need to do something like that. I'm not much on glo but I'll sign up just to help with the tees. The cost for a load of water is $250.00. I may do it with a sprinkling can. It's a shame to waste this warm weather.
Extremely kind words, Patrick. Thank you. I'm glad you chased me down. Knowing where you're coming & what you're doing has moved my respect for you up also. It's easy to discuss things when someone's heart in the right place. It seems when someone is involved with disc golf for personal gain the bar moves up, & it makes things more difficult.
What I've noticed different from past years is we've had cliques. It appears to me we're becoming of one body, the club may be a part of that. I believe that although it seems I do a lot on my own, I do get help. It's hard for me to remember everyone, but my focus lately has been #11, & Shawn Harmon comes to mind. He picked up & delivered scrap block for the bottom course on that hole. Many have helped me; I just get the credit.
Kudos to you, Patrick Johnson. Keep moving forward with a good heart.
Frank,Thanks, Patrick, for the respect you've shown to me. I sincerely appreciate your sentiment. My intent, however, is not to start a discussion board war with you or anyone else. With that said, you should know that I hold certain moral standards very high, particularly stealing, especially stealing from your friends -- by the way, there has been no effort to correct the wrong that was committed despite the fact that I gave him that opportunity -- and I feel that I, and others (see the post Jonie B. Good) have been wronged by Jon. I'm not here to slander Jon, and I'm glad you had a positive experience with Jon, but my experience with him was vastly different than yours. I feel that those who read these posts are intelligent enough to form their own opinions, both good opinions and bad ones. To only say good things about Jon when I've had (and others have had) such negative experiences based on his lack of moral integrity, I feel, would be a great disservice to the disc golf community.
Jon had my trust & let me down. It would be disappointing to our community, that the people he's teaching, learn about his charactor as me & others have. We have enough hurdles to jump.
I just wanted to officially thank Jon Boster for agreeing to help teach this clinic on short notice. I know he is unlikely to see this post, but others will. And I owe him thanks for being there to help me when I needed it.Hey Patrick, thanks for the official notice. Jon Boster is a thief, he steals, & he lies. Give me something official when he pays Mick the $50.00 he stole from him. I hope you're not giving any history lesson about Jon Boster, officially. He needs to make things fight in our Disc Golf Community, Officially!!! & Period!!!
Hole #11 at Channahon has turned out to be a big pain for one reason & another. Different reasons, wet weather, equipment breakdown, lack of cooperation from the Park (to be fair disc golf is low priority, no revenue) timing to be there.
That changed today. Shawn Harmon, & Roy Bazan along with Brian McCarthy from the Park, including myself removed the rock. That paved the way to get the pulverized dirt.
It seems when I get in a spot those two are there. Thanks Shawn & Roy we moved a lot of rocks.
Today is a day that I haven't felt better in a long time. The thought of dying of cancer has been a big deal to me. The Gleason score of 8 has been my concern.
I slept through the night last night, I think a little Jack helped. I realize having cancer is old news, but for me it's a daily reality. It has made my struggle much easier because of so many that care. Believe me, it's easy to say I quit. I can't quit with the love & suppot I'm getting.
I might add to keep you thoughts & prayres for Randy Moore Sr. He has been a 4 year struggle.
Did you people notice winter league is starting at 10:30am? We at one time, started at 10:00am, & then 10:30 & then 11:00 Mike has to get up with the new baby, so he'll be up at at it. Congratulations Mike & Amy! Glad to see it Mick,Mike, & Carbo. I'm pleased we're starting a little earlier so we can watch, Da Bears!!!
Thanks for that Randy, you were a good inspiration for me. I thought that was so cool when you & Fox Valley first did that. I hoped i could some day do something for our area. We, J-Town, have a club now, a year old. It was a good opportunity to do something. You were an inspiration to me & Thor made mention of & the rest is history. Thor also took me by the hand to show me his approach, as you did also. I think it's a super, great thing. I have to thank Pitner also for getting caught up in our enthusiasm & giving the Mission the winter jackets.
I had some of the same thoughts when I came home. A good tournament is a huge amount of work. Jesse, you & your staff did a tremendous job. The more I see what it takes to run a tournament, it blows my mind what Gary Lewis did years ago. The names that come to mind are of course you Jesse, Gary Lewis, Mike Kursell (unbelievable) Jason Poole. They're certainly others like Jake spotting on #9, Dean & Laureen also filled in spotting on long #6, Roy bringing his basket. I know there are others that don't come to mind immediately. Whoops, I think you can fit Darrin in there someplace. Whoops again, Dale & Wrong Way (Phil)
The synergy is awesome. Good work Jesse!
