Courses / The Oaks, Mokena
« on: September 20, 2011, 09:32:25 AM »
I’ve talked with Mary Beth Windberg the new Superintendent of Recreation at the Mokena Park District. She gave us the okay for our doubles league to return to The Oaks next year. She’s an extremely nice lady who wants to rebuild relationships with the disc community especially with the people who want to run tournaments and leagues.

PDGA / PDGA Logo Contest
« on: August 30, 2011, 07:26:36 AM »

 Greetings all disc golfing graphic artists! It’s time to start thinking about the year ahead. The PDGA is now soliciting designs for the 2012 Ace Club and Birdie Club logos. Compensation in kind for the winning design will be a 2012 Ace or Birdie Club membership plus the 2011 Pro Worlds DVD. (A larger package will be provided if the same person submits more than one winning logo design).

Designs should include the following:

    * PDGA logo colors (green = PMS 334, blue = PMS 653)
    * The words "2012 PDGA Ace (or Birdie) Club"
    * Ace or Birdie theme, for example Ace could be a disc tracking from far away and slamming chains, and Birdie could be a disc under a basket with a cardinal or other bird sitting on top of the basket singing.

Please submit all logos in vector format (.eps). If submitted in raster format (.tif, .jpg), logos must be at least 300 dpi in density and 1200x1200 dpi. All logos should also be presented in both color and black/white versions, and must work well for hotstamping on discs in both 4 color process and black and white.

In Memory Of... / “Steady” Ed Headrick #001

 “Steady” Ed Headrick Obituary
June 28, 1924 — August 12, 2002.
Steady Ed the Founder of Disc Golf

The inventor of the modern-day Frisbee may be gone, but his spirit and his ashes will continue to fly high into the great blue yonder. 

“Steady” Ed Headrick, died in his sleep early Monday, August 12, 2002, at his home in La Selva Beach. He was 78.

No services were planned, but there was an open house and a party to celebrate his life.

Headrick, who had high blood pressure, had suffered two strokes while attending the Professional Disc Golf Association 2002 Amateur World Championships in Miami.

The strokes left him paralyzed on his left side and weak on the right. Still, he had remained in high spirits even signing autographs on Frisbees from his bed at a Miami hospital. He returned home to California Aug. 6 after doctors determined that physical therapy would not aid his recovery and that his condition would continue to deteriorate.

Headrick’s ashes are molded into a limited number of memorial flying discs. A memorial fund has been be created by the family that was used to establish and found “The Ed Headrick Memorial Museum”.

“The Ed Headrick Memorial Museum”, is home to the Disc Golf Hall of Fame, and showcases many historical items from the early days of our sport.

Courses / Highland Park Clean Up Party! Saturday July 2
« on: June 28, 2011, 07:46:07 AM »
Highland Park Clean Up Party!

We need volunteers to come out this Saturday July 2 to help get Highland Park into shape for the 29th Illinois State Disc Golf Championships July 23-24. We’ll be weed whacking, cutting the tree lying over snake hill on hole 15, moving limestone, picking up garbage and much more. If you can make it out for a couple of hours that will be great. Bring any tools you have that might help especially weed whackers and wheel barrels. I’ll be out there by 8:00a.m. but come out whenever you can.


Contact me if you have any more questions.

PDGA / Worlds Smoking Ban
« on: April 22, 2011, 09:19:17 AM »

Smoking has been banned during competition at both the 2011 PDGA Professional and Amateur Disc Golf World Championships. Players will not be permitted to smoke from the start of play until the player’s scorecard has been submitted. Smoking of any kind during competition could result in immediate disqualification and further disciplinary action as stated in the PDGA Competition Manual, Section 3.3 Player Misconduct.

After many months of contemplation, In January 2011 the PDGA Board made the decision to restrict smoking during both the 2011 PDGA Pro World Championships in Santa Cruz CA and the 2011 PDGA Amateur & Junior World Championships in Rochester NY. The Board was well aware of the potential ramifications of this decision and how others have addressed this issue, and this board (as has past boards) debated this issue for some time before making this decision for 2011.The board has not made any decisions on a long term smoking policy for our major events. With the 2011 PDGA Pro Worlds in Santa Cruz requiring a smoking ban due to the drought conditions in California, the Board felt this was the opportune time to test the waters on the impact of a smoking ban at our two (2) most visible and public events – the PDGA World Championships.

We will evaluate the effects of this policy for the future at our 2011 Fall Summit, and we welcome your comments and suggestions.

Highland Park is permanently being removed in the next couple of weeks. It sounds like they are wiping out most of the up top area for soccer fields and two huge playgrounds.
