Random Draw Doubles • Saturday April 18th
This is a Fundraiser event to help with the costs of the sleeves, locks, concrete, etc. that are necessary to get new baskets in at Highland Park.
Along with raising funds, players will be given garbage bags to pick up trash laying around the park, which we all can agree is a MUST for Highland.
Format: Random Draw Doubles
Cost: $25 --- includes two 50/50 CTP’s and Ace Fund
$10 of every entry will go towards Highland
Player's Meeting 10:00am
There will be a CTP on every hole. $5 donation gives you the chance at every CTP, this $5 goes directly to Highland.

The 2015 SL Award or better known as
The 2015 Shitiest Luck Award!
The award will go to the player with the Shitiest luck from September 2014 – September 2015. We will announce the winner at the 2015 J-Town Fest and the recipient will receive the big ol’ shitty traveling trophy for the year.
Last year Richard Walsh won the award and he is currently traveling around with the shitty trophy.
Players with shitty luck will not be forgotten. Please help me keep track of all the players with shitty luck this year and we'll determine who had the shitiest.
Thanks and I'll see you soon!
I attached a photo of the award below.

Some things that need to be done:
If you have time please fee free to tackle any of these projects. July 5 or 6 and/or 12 & 13 will be the next big organized days but I’ll keep you posted on that.
If you (Complete) something post on the website or let me know through email so we continue to update the list.
Once the Taste of Joliet is over (June 27 – 29) the Park District should be able to cut most accessible fairways and the top of hill by 11’s blue tee pad to the parking lot. (ALMOST COMPLETE)
Some of the stuff completed on the list might have to be redone because of all of this damn rain this year. I’ll keep you posted.
If anyone has a lot of time during the day and wants a big project to start than go to hole 16’s hill. As always it’s going to take a lot of work to get that thing trimmed up. Everyone will be playing both tee pads like last year so most of the hill needs to be cut up. I’ll be starting it this week.

The World’s Biggest Disc Golf Weekend started in 1991, when over 350 players took part in a one-day event at Zilker Park in Austin, Texas. At the time, it was the biggest tournament in disc golf history. The next year, creator John Houck #1688 turned it into a global event dedicated to introducing the sport to tens of thousands of people around the world on the same weekend. At its peak, the event was hosted in almost 200 cities and 16 countries worldwide. Houck continued this tradition for 23 years, and this year marks the 24th and final event for WBDGW as it is known today.
