I'll give you a call, I don't have concrete on hand. We can take a look at it.

As some already know there is buzz about concrete tees for Highland. Some of the obvious hurdles are money & labor.
I'm helping Darrin & Jessie put a game plan together. Some of the tees will be difficult to get to. With enough people we may do the difficult, not much is impossible, & certaintly not the hard to get tees at Highland,with enough help.
Get a hold of Darrin & give your level of experience in concrete. Depending on the game plan we may need strong backs. We could get a concrete pump truck but that's not cheap.
Lets see if we can get something going.
Total includes sponsors, raffles, 50/50, players.
300 lbs. of food.
I know thanks is ordinary, but Thanks! J-Town is a new club & it took many to mesh together to have this tournament. A grateful Thanks to all involved.

So since so many things have changed about the layout, format and whatnot, here are a few more things to be aware of for this weekend:I wish I could make it but I'm still getting over the last three of months working on the J-Town charity.
It's too bad more from FVM couldn't make it to J-Town's Fund Raiser.
Please accept my apologies.
Ray, Jason, Dean, & Sara plus your helpers. Y'all did a good job, especially being the first tournament. I know there was time effort put forth before the tournament that wasn't seen. You people were in the spotlight & get applause from me.
I had so much fun! I am glad that by having fun we could also help out others less fortunate. Thanks Frank, for letting me beat you...just kidding. I really enjoyed our rounds, and look forward to the next one. Congrats to the back-to-back ace-er!Although I can throw better, you're going to be tough to beat even when I'm throwing well.
Thanks for coming out, along with John, Pat & Sam. I know it's a bit of a trip for you all.
With all the work that goes into a tournament it's worthless without players so thanks to you that came out.
Not to mention the people who were in the spotlight in today's tournament there are behind the scenes help I want to make mention of. I left my notes at home & I'm not sure if they were mentioned. Mike Kursell (back brace Mike) custom made each sponsor sign. He verified address & made custom signs for sponsor & did that from the posts that were on line . Only with a few did we have to get together on.
Shawn Harmon is always ready to rock & roll. He helped with the tees, also with splitting the firewood & brought his fire pit, and too with generous donations from him & his family.
Doctor Pepper ( Ryan Barcas) also helped with sponsors & labor. He also helped with splitting the firewood, & frequently asked if I need something. He also brought his firepit.
Dave K. made the player flyer's, & he & Tom M. had also kept the tees clean.
Gary Lewis putting up capital for Ice Bowl merchandise.
Dom got $375.00 in sponsors, Thor pointed him in the right direction.
As was announced, the idea for a local Ice Bowl, came from Thor. He along with Randy Moore tutored me to get sponsors, & I might add it was relatively easy for the cause we had.
Morning Star is a staple in the Joliet area and that made it easier to get sponsors.
Randy is having trouble with his left hand, that's why he hasn't been playing. Give him positive thoughts & prayers.
Thanks you all that played!!!
Can also use a phone to do some of that as well for those that haven't pre-reg'd or if there is someone that isn't playing the tourney, I'd be happy to lend my phone for the first round to double check everyone's status that wasn't verified.Thanks for your response, but it's under control. We can use that as backup.
Frank we really need to get you spell check.... One more day everyone.. bring two cans of food... if your not current with the PDGA be prepared to get taxed.... you must have proof you are current or the tourney gets fined... weather is looking good.. can't wait to see you all out thereI've been told that before, I'm working on it.
Although I haven't checked wiyh Jason, maybe he'll bring his lap top. Maybe Scott Pitner can help us. He has checked on current members in the past.
I'm informed that there will be a lap top to check current PDGA members & I assume the scores will be posted quickly.
One more day for the Cubs & nothing yet. Hey Cubbies, I sent letters to both the Sox & Cubs, the same day. We do have one more day, maybe the Cubs know I'm a Sox fan. Perhaps one of you Cub fans can help me next time.FrankI didn't see that & I was looking. It didn't take long to write the notes.
Kudos to the J-TOWN crew for all their hard work on Morning Stars Ice Bowl. Very very huge and generous sponsors list. It's going to be a bomb!Thanks for that Randy, you are a part of getting this going, not to mention Thor. I'm thrilled with others that jumped on the wagon, J-Town boys & so many that have contributed.
The bottom line is who shows up Saturday.
One more day.............Don't forget the food!We had a meeting last night about the tournament & one of the things discussed was failure to bring non perishable food items. If you forget to bring something, there will be a $5.00 charge & that will go to the Mission.Keep in mind to bring two items for the pantry. I don't want anyone to be suprised at registration.
We're going to have coffeein the morning
