J-Town Ice Bowl / Re: Ice Bowl Cash Results
« on: September 30, 2010, 09:26:49 PM »
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.

That looks awesome Jason, #4. I think we need to get a better coat of stain so the color shows up better. Maybe the different light as you took the pictures make the stain look different. It looks very nice Jason!

Leagues & Tourneys / Re: 23rd CHANNAHON CLASSIC
« on: September 26, 2010, 08:40:16 PM »
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!

Courses / Re: Respect...these are public parks
« on: September 23, 2010, 06:09:45 AM »
I couldn't agree with you more Dean!
Ben! You are not special! That sign is posted because there was an incident. The park does not need the liability. Something happened Ben for them to put the sign up & I wish you would respect the privilege you have to play there. It's different than drinking, someone could get hurt or there could be property damage. The solution is real simple, if you don't like the rules & conditions, don't play there!!! What's going to happen is the basket will be removed. Why do a few have to ruin it for many.
You need to join the military, you'll learn what no means or pay the consequences.
Keep it up & get caught & the basket will be gone. I'm going to tell you what I really think the next time I see you. You don't seem to be a reasonable person & just care about yourself.

An interesting thing happen to me yesterday. I bumped into the park superintendent  yesterday.We ended talking about the meeting we had a week ago. The two supervisors talked a couple of days before & the executive director said it doesn't look good for Frank. I felt like a used whore & my age was showing. Any way both of us where ready to tell the other to take a hike. I've had years of negative build up & was prepared to throw it down the tubes. I just wanted to get one more thing done. Like I said, I thought about it for some time & they probably felt the same way. It was music to my ears when I was told we like what you do & want you to continue. It brings me back to,do you believe in God?

Ha, ha, ha, ha! You see I get confused easy sometimes too, that made me chuckle. Some morning it's great to get up & have something put a smile on my face. I have a picture of Jesse going oops & Dean (bangam) going, what's up with that.

Leagues & Tourneys / Re: Tuesday 09/21 Handicap
« on: September 21, 2010, 08:37:51 PM »
It really worked out pretty well tonight relative to cross country. They start around 4:15 & are wrapping up by 5:15. the bangam had everybody start past #3 so by the time we got to #16 everything was clear. The relative new xc route was brought before the Channahon Park district board some years & they went along with the new route. It worked out nicely for tonight. Of course when they have a big meet nothing works for disc golf. Tuesday & Thursday are usually much smaller.
Not relative to xc was the rain! It just dumped,with lightning!!! Some didn't finish.

Leagues & Tourneys / Tuesday 09/21 Handicap
« on: September 20, 2010, 06:03:25 AM »
We may have a problem with our handicap league Tuesday 09/21 at Channahon. It's cross country season & Tuesdays, Thursdays, & Saturday morning are cross country days. Sometimes on week days there are only a few runners & sometimes many. I know this & should have said something sooner. I have no conclusion, we'll just have to see.

How true Mr. Joe Flash. I'd be there with hand clippres & a flashlight getting the job done. Of course I'd have my camouflage on.

Flash can throw. We played at Highland & on #9, I through twice & was still short of his drive, about a foot. Now everyone knows I don't have any D, but I threw 3 times! I didn't hit anything either! I remember him before he got hurt & after 4 years & big time struggle he's coming around.
 He throws so smooth & effortless. Flash gets my vote!!!

The meeting went as scheduled & nothing remarkable happened. I was asked what I didn't like & said so. No solutions were offered. Chuck Szoke is the head chief & said he would like me to continue working there. He also said he was going to double my wages. He likes what I do & on the bigger changes, would like notice. We talked for about 45 minutes & I thought there would be some confrontation, nothing close. I didn't feel the same about the next guy down the line, Pat Fox. He said nothing. Daryl Cole, the man before Pat took care of the course, so I was a Gods send to him. Pat has not had the same responsible, so it appears he doesn't care much. I've got a lot to do next week. Classic is coming up.
I may ask the sod men to help me pick up rocks.

I wanted to say something before this but as Jesse pointed out the behind the scenes guy. This web sight is all Jason, the spread sheets he makes for handicap league, what he does with the computer for local tournaments, he is also huge in starting the J-Town disc golf club. Notice the score card board he made. The thing the score cards are put in for tournaments.  I think he took on line sewing lessons. Just a few things that I think are taken for granted. I'm glad he's with us. He's really quite a guy!

I always think of something after I post. He gave me a heads up about grass seed. I'm still unsure what' going to happen, I'll know in less than 12 hours, a meeting is scheduled at 0730.

Lost & Found / Way to Go Hutter!

I lost my CE Valkyrie, hole #7 Lockport. Hutters drive was in the area of my upshot, which hyzered in the schoul,  Ryan Garvick found it. It was a disc I really didn't want to lose. Great find Ryan!!! Thanks!!!

Courses / Let the Talks Begin!
« on: September 11, 2010, 10:04:21 PM »
The park called Friday afternoon & wants to meet at my convenience. I'm going to see if Thursday morning works. There are issues on both sides & we'll have to see how er can compromise. The reality for me was to throw in the towel. I know how to sneak out there & do a minimum to get ready for the tournament. I have so much more going on in my life to argue with unthankful people. They want to talk so maybe they do appreciate what's been done. It's encouraging.
We'll see.
