TEES
24 Holes - Long Tees - Par 72 

CONDITIONS
The temperature to start the round was in around 69 with some wind from the NE The sun was out and it felt great.

COMMENTS
To our experienced Ams that pair up with a beginner. Your guidance towards these players is a major part of the future success of the league. Please be a mentor to  these new players and make sure when they leave they feel like they had the coolest time and want to come back. It’s great to win but if feels a whole lot better knowing you helped make difference in someones game. You just might be helping the next great player in our area.   

Kayla VanTricht becomes only the second women to cash in league history. She is the first women to have a good enough score to tie for first in league history. Kayla ends up in second place in the Am/Nov division. Nice shooting Kayla!


The race  for  the top four spots in each division is coming down to the wire.
In the Pro/Adv division Steve Forneris &  Darrin Johnson are  tied for first with only two weeks left in the first half.  Tom Matesevac is only two points off the pace and making a big push for the top spot. With Fern missing next week it leaves the door wide open for some movement.  The top four spots  are starting separate from the rest of the field and time is running out for that late push.

In the Am/Nov division it looks like Kevin Yockman is going to run away with the first place spot for the first half. He just won again giving himself a six point lead with only two weeks left. Thor Batchelor and Kester Jeffers have a comfortable three point lead for second and third but they will definitely need to play well to maintain that lead. They will also be battling against each other for that second place spot. The race for the fourth and final spot includes almost 20 players so it should be very interesting to see the pairing these next couple of weeks. It’s going to go down to the wire.

The Fourth of July falls on a Wednesday which would be the first week of the second half. League will be canceled that week and resume on July 11. Go and celebrate with your friends and families.

Shoot The Breeze / Re: Gary Lewis Achievement Award
« on: June 13, 2012, 08:08:49 AM »
I need help keeping track of what people are accomplishing in the J-Town area starting from September 2011 and ending September 2012. I started keeping a list but I need help throughout the next 9 months. Frank said he would help but it would be good to have one or two more individuals keeping track. It would be great to have the most deserving and extensive list possibly for the next GLA Award winner. Let me know if you can help. Post under here, email or call me.

It's time to start putting up names of nominees.
You have Thor & the gang that helps him. Enough can't be said about Jason Poole. Your partner Darrin. My bias is to those with non profit motives, like yourself. It tells me where their heart is when it's for free, & an atta boy for encouragement.

Yes, those guys will definitely be on the list.
Don't forget Shawn Harmon. I want to put a ring around #13's basket, Channahon, & he's begging to help me.He's around when needed to  help & promote Disc Golf.
A couple more & that would be Ray Hill, Dean Bingham, & Dave Kociuba.  They're on the J-Town board & contribute through out the year. Some highlights, they help with things like the tournaments the club has. The Ice Bowl, club invitational, the USDGC qualifer.
We have Mike & Mick with winter league.
I know...........you'll put them on the list. :)

They are all on the nomination list. They are all great guys and great J-Town disc golf promoters. Thanks for keeping track Paco.

« on: June 08, 2012, 07:56:03 AM »
Tom will definitely be missed especially at West Park. He loved that place! Tom was a great down to earth kind of guy.
He didn’t have much interest in playing in the league but I remember one time he just came up to us and handed us $20 and said to put it towards our league. He was well liked throughout the J-Town disc golf community.

« on: June 08, 2012, 07:12:50 AM »
I'm new, I don't know anyone yet, but I am more than willing to help as much as I can. When I do something - like start Disc Golf - I jump in all the way to my head and sink or swim! Don't know if that is relevent, but I guess what I am saying is that I am already in love with this sport and want to do what I can to make it better for myself and everyone else that loves it.



Here's a link if you want to help out.
http://jtowndiscgolf.com/SMF1/index.php?topic=616.0

Also I will need help with IL State. I need spotters on each day and guys who are willing to get there earlier to set up and stay late to brake things down. We will also be having a couple of all out garbage collecting, weed whacking, ball busting clean up days at Highland Park very soon. Check for dates at this link. I'll have the info soon.

WEEK 10 - June 6, 2012
First Half #10
The Oaks - Mokena, IL


TEES
27 Holes - White Tees - Par 81 

CONDITIONS
The temperature to start the round was around 75 with some NE gusts in the teens. The sun was out and it felt great. The temp fell into the mid 60s by the end of the round.  A picture perfect night. The course looked great and it was in  great shape.  Another perfect night for disc golf

COMMENTS
To our experienced Ams that pair up with a beginner. Your guidance towards these players is a major part of the future success of the league. Please be a mentor to  these new players and make sure when they leave they feel like they had the coolest time and want to come back. It's great to win but if feels a whole lot better knowing you helped make difference in someones game. You just might be helping the next great player in our area.   

After a 4-year hiatus the J-Town Disc Golf Doubles League was  back at The Oaks. Thanks to Mary Beth Windberg, Mokena’s Superintendant of Recreation for all of her support and for allowing this to happen. It was great to be back and we are looking forward to having The Oaks on the second half schedule a couple of more times.

The race  for  the top four spots in each division is coming down to the wire. With only three weeks left in the first half the gaps for the top spots are closing. We have a ton of players jockeying for position. It's going to be tough battle through June 27.

The Fourth of July falls on a Wednesday which would be the first week of the second half. League will be canceled that week and resume on July 11. Go and celebrate with your friends and families.

Cool Ace Stories:
On Andrew Smith’s first throw of the night Andrew hits his first ace of his life. Now that's pretty damn cool. He aced hole 16.
Paul Pazanin aced Hole 12 which was also the CTP for the CFR disc. The cool thing is Paul told me to keep the disc and donate it to Operation J-Town Storm. These packages from home mean the world to our soldiers! Please donate and check out the link for more info.

At least 10 new players

 
TOP THREE
PRO/ADV

Leo Borowski & Steve Forneris completely destroy the course by shooting an amazing round of 60 (-21). They take the top honors for the night. Now that's a hot round. They end up splitting 131 bucks and tacking on 4 huge points to their point totals for the first half. Fern now moves into first place alone with a two point cushion. Leo gives himself a chance to get back into top four with a late first half surge. Al Hermosillo & Dave Kocuiba shoot a fantastic round of 61 (-20) to take second place out right for the night. They end up taking home 43.50 each and they both make significant jumps in the points standings. Dave is now only one point out of fourth while Al sits at three points out. Taking third place out right for the night were Buddy Lee & Steve Slater. They also shot a fantastic round of 62 (-19) and split 60 bucks. They both keep their hopes a live for the first half and they need a late first half surge to get to at least that fourth spot.


TOP THREE
AM/NOV

Thor Batchelor and Brian Cantrell tore up The Oaks shooting an incredible round of 63 (-18). They take the top honors for the night and split $75. This was a huge win for Thor. He now moves into sole possession of third place for the first half by three points. Josh DeLucio & Andrew Smith take the second place honors by shooting a very hot round of 64 (-17). They end up taking home $23 each. Andrew keeps his hopes a live for the half and will need a late first half charge to catch the top four. Matt Hotuyec & Darren Terpstra also shoot a very nice round last night. They come in with a 65 (-16)  and take the third place honors out right. They end splitting 35 bucks. Nice shooting guys!
