What a great day to be out. Sunny, light winds about 12mph from the NW, & about 5 degrees at tee time. Nobody was early. Hey! It's going to be warmer tomorrow, 8 or 9 & sunny! See you there! Oh how fun that will be!
0 $ in ace & 0 $ added Next week Channahon short tees.
I asked Scott Pitner to run this tournament & sell merchandise & he reluctantly said yes. He not much on cold weather. Things have changed, after talking to Gary Lewis this evening. He will sell the merchandise & either Thor or I Will be the TD but that position is open. We are going to need help tournament day.
I played a course at Lake Eureka in Eureka, IL. It's about an hour and a half from Joliet. 55 south to 74 west to Eureka. Very easy to find. The course is located in the Lower Lake Eureka Park all the way in the back near the ball diamonds. There were only two long holes, 400+ feet, one 300+, the rest under 300 feet. Three holes were in the open, all the rest were in the trees. The flow of the course was nice and there was plenty of signage indicating the next tee. It's a finesse course ... I lost count of the trees I hit.
If anyone is looking to play a different course, give it a try.
I'm curious, has anyone else played this course? What do you think?
sorry bout yesterday, as it turned out I couldn't get away...spent the afternoon @ immediate care w/ my son...bad sinus infection...anyhoo, Frank gave me a holler and I'll prob be getting together w/ youse guys soon!!
Kev, This isn't about playing, how can I get in touch with you about the chariety? Frank

I met with Morning Star Missions this afternoon & they offered help tournament day. Interestling they wanted to have an Ice Bowel but after looking into it was more than they could handle. I'm excited that we are doing something to help the needy in our area! I've thought this for sometime of what a good community of disc golfers we have in the Juliet area, that must include Jason Poole for getting the club started. Many know that this area is a strong for disc golf but it just hasn't moved up to the next step. I'm thrilled about moving forward in our community. I would like to promote synergy. We have a solid base that's been in hibernation, with many Good people. Much thanks to Thor for starting Ice Bowel!!!
