Courses / Re: Concrete Tees for Highland
« on: July 26, 2010, 08:50:23 PM »
My hat is off for Dean, I need to throw in Mike Vargo also.
Dean was the go to guy for the Highland tees. He took calls, made calls, getting help, working with Mike on the stone etc. Dean was huge!!! Mike took the gravel to all the tees with the park's equiptment along with getting the comcrete to those hard to get areas. Tremoundous labor saving. All that helped worked well together to get the job done. I thought it was very good team effort.

There are not a lot of big deal things going but I thought I'd pass some things on.
Shawn Harmon insisted about driving me up for a couple of treatments. He said I'm not working & he wanted to help me of which I'm very thankful & honored.Shawn has a good heart.
Needless to say is we talk on the way (he took me there for my 16th & 17th treatments) & we talked about the Disc Golf Community, along with my passing. I brought that up. What's real important is a strong, positive, mental attitude to beat these issues, & give thanks for the support  from my Disc Golf friends. That's huge my friends!!!
I'm going through the normal side affects, sleep, frequent urinating, being tired.
I ask questions every treatment & I always leave encouraged with the posotive answers.

Can we start earlier? Maybe 0730 or 0800. I realize it's Sunday morning & I would like to do it Saturday, but it is what it is. It's a little cooler earlier. People are going to come as they feel, I've been through this before. Can you get there sooner or let me know what I can do before you get there?

Equipment / Re: Keen Milo Disc Golf Shoes
« on: July 11, 2010, 09:49:04 PM »
Just played my 1st round with these Keen Milo Disc Golf Shoes and they are fantastic!

very lightweight, great tread, light and comfortable (and my feet weren't killin me either!)

A bit of advice tho, if you're considering purchasing these, order a half size bigger!  They do run a bit small


How much, how long have you had them & where's the sight I can research them?
I'm tough on shoes & I'm not happy with the last pair of merrell's I bought.

Courses / Channahon Upgrade
« on: July 10, 2010, 08:43:07 AM »
I was with the park superintendent, Pat Fox, Thursday & was asking about some things to upgrade relative to the course.
What I've wanted to do for some time is get #6  like #11, out of the water during wet times of the year. Being #4 & #11 are up it's creating more of a flooding problem. What I'd like to do is dig out a water hazard ( like on #2) in front of the basket. We need a machine to do that & he agreed.
I need to complete #11, hopefully we'll get dirt the week starting the week of 07/11/10. I'd like to start #6 after the Channahon Classic.

I have to pass this on!
It's 0822 Saturday morning & I've been up since 0600.
I hope this isn't the kiss of death as they say.
I feel GREAT today!!! I feel unbelievable good! Most everything I've been doing lately has been a duty or to be responsible. More like sucking it up & just doing it! I can't believe how good I feel!
Thanks for your prayers!
What a great day to be alive!!!

The pavilion permit was picked up yesterday.We have a liquor permit but it's for the pavilion only. I realize that it's common to be drinking on the course. Keep in mind it's a weekday & park employees are in the area.
Just a heads up.

I want to clear something up. I've been talking to some & there was some confusion about my cancer. It was mentioned I'm going through preventive care. Not true, I have prostate cancer. They took biopsy's & that showed cancer.The radiation treatments I'm having kill cancer cells along with good cells, & there may be side effects.
I'm doing my best not to get emotional, that helps me push myself. I want my mind, along with your prayers to overcome this cancer. I've asked this before, If you don't  believe in prayer, give me your good thoughts. I'm acting normal. We all good days & bad days.
I meet with my doctor once a week, & gives me a chance to ask questions. One question I had was why two years of hormone shots. The answer was I have high grade cancer with it being most likely that the cancer has spread outside the prostate. It's not definite but most likely. There will be more testing after a total of 40 treatments.
I was talking to a patient with a Gleason score of 7. He had his prostate removed, only to find his cancer spread outside the prostate. It appears I made the right choice based on his experience.
It helps me to talk about it & I don't mind questions.
Have a wonderful 4th of July weekend!

I reserved the Maple Pavilion in Channahon, lower one by the parking lot. I assume the standard stuff, 0900 or so players meeting 0930 start. I guess knowing where it is, is important, Channahon. Club members only & it's free.
I would have to go back to the club minutes for more details, trophies & such.
Maybe one of the other board members will jump in.

Leagues & Tourneys / Chain Reaction Channahon Tournament $25.00
« on: June 19, 2010, 10:13:09 PM »
I want to make note that the Chain Reaction in Channahon is $25.00 for current PDGA members. Most tournaments add $10.00 for non PDGA members.
The way this is presented is to subtract the $10.00. At first glance it appeared to be $35.00 registration for a C tier.

This has been corrected since I started this post. I'm going to leave it posted just to leave it as a heads up. The pro division is $25.00 more.

It's hard to say who reads the mesage board. It's not as active as some. If I lost it at Lockport maybe Thor would have found it. I was just putting it out there with the outside chance someone can put a name to the number. Not a big deal.
