My best guess is the Joliet Park District did most of the clean up, perhaps a one Day deal & then back to their routine. They did a wonderful job! Thanks Vargo, or maybe Gary. I'll be out there Thursday to help, maybe a spotter to help cut the leaner on #1 would be helpful. Your doing a super good job Jesse & & I'm thrilled to be a part of your efforts.

I can help you Thursday Frankie!  I'm a little stir crazy right now.  :( And I'm still doing a walk through clean-up the day before tourney.

Thanks Paco for busting your butt all day on Saturday! Gary did get in contact with the park district and they were out and done within a day. Considering the holes in the back were also done, it makes me think Mikey Vargo was part of that crew. They did a hell of a job!
I’ll also be there on Thursday working on the Belmont area. Call me when you get there and I’ll come down to help on hole 1.
Thanks Randy Sr. for taking the time to help out.

I went to the park to chop some trees last night and as I pulled in I noticed some of the trees had been cut and removed. As I drove and walked farther through the course I realized almost all the down trees from the storms had been cut and cleared. Wow I’m in awe! I think the Joliet Park District must of came in and did this massive job quickly. I’m still not positive but if individuals did this please let me know.
Paco is putting the finishing touches on some dangerous hanging trees. You should have seen the grin on his face when he came up with his new chainsaw. He’s like a kid in a candy store, trees don’t stand a chance with his new beast.
We are now back on track with just trimming and garbage collecting.

Thanks Paco & Chango for helping trim & cutting last night.

The big thing now is trash collecting. The course is pretty messy. People still think they can dump their personal garbage throughout the course. If anyone has time and still wants to help out then please pick-up trash.

Thanks again to everyone who has been helping.

We have major tree issues now at the course. The two storms from last weekend have just decided to leave major tree and tree limbs lying in the middle of almost every fairway. We need as many volunteers as possible with chainsaws to help cut down this mess. We are getting in touch with the Park District to see what kind of help they can lend. If you have any kind of time and a chainsaw and would like to help here’s a list of what we’re facing. 

Hole 1 – Tree down over tee pad, it’s supported by another tree but looks dangerous – Chainsaw
Hole 2 – Small trees near basket – Hand cutter
Hole 3 – Big tree down right by basket – Chainsaw
Hole 4 – Big tree down and big limb in fairway – Chainsaw
Hole 6 – Big tree down by tee pad stairs – Chainsaw, smaller trees on basket side hand cutter
Hole 7 – Big tree down fairway/right of fairway – Chainsaw
Hole 9 – Tree limb by tee pad – Hand saw
Hole 10 – Big tree limb down by in front of red tee pad – Chainsaw
Hole 13 – Big tree down in fairway – Chainsaw
Hole 16 - Big tree down in fairway – Chainsaw
Hole 17 -  Big tree and limbs down in fairway – Chainsaw
Hole 18 -  Big tree down in fairway - Chainsaw

WEEK 13 - June 27, 2012
First Half #13
Highland Park - Joliet, IL


TEES
18 Holes - Long Tees Pro/Adv, Short Tees Am/Nov- Par 57 Everybody played the alternate Blue Tee on Hole 16. A 350 plus shot teeing from behind hole eleven's blue tee pad. It’s about 300 to the top of the hill with about a 50 foot straight down putt. A very cool shot and everyone seemed to enjoy the challenge.

CONDITIONS
The temperature to start the round was a around 90 with winds from the south at around 12mph. Gusts were near 25 mph.  It was a tough hot, windy day for disc golf. The temp fell into the low 80s and the winds died down by the end of the round.  The course is looking pretty good but it still needs some trimming and garbage collecting before IL State.

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 someone’s game. You just might be helping the next great player in our area.   

Gateway Giveaway!
Thanks to Dave McCormack at Gateway Discs Sports for sponsoring our league with Gateway discs. Through their kind gesture we were able to have a very cool &  unique league ctp.  On hole #10 we had a ctp for each individual group as they played it. We ended up with 15 ctp winners. The winners were pretty excited to get something new in their hands. We will be having another Gateway Giveaway at The Oaks in Mokena on July 11, the first week of the second half. The winners were Tom Matesevac, Randy McMurray, Jose Herrera, Chris Simoe, thor Batchelor, Jake Broughton, Jason Smith, Greg Guther Ethan Fabianski, Mike Noe, Steven Guther, Scott Salton, Rico Lopez, Anthony Rodriguez and Darrin Johnson.

• Pete Dell’Aquila’s makes a huge impression on his first ever league night. His dominating play gives him first place in the Am/Nov division. Pete also crushes an incredible tomahawk ace on hole #6. By the way it sounds like he is going to become a regular at league. He quickly could become one of our next top Ams.


• The race  for  the top four spots in each division is coming down to the wire with one week left!

Pro/Adv division:
With Steve Forneris on vacation Darrin Johnson takes a one point lead in the division  Tom Matesevac is still only two points off of first place and one point off of second. Dave Kociuba sits at fourth with a couple points lead. Paul Pazanin gets a huge win and now is only two points out of fourth. Al Hermosillo is the only other player who can possible make the top four with three points off of fourth.
It’s now time to play spoiler for the rest of us! Don’t forget ever point counts for the overall trophies.

Am/Nov division:
Kevin Yockman takes first place with a dominating performance in the first half of the season. Thor Batchelor now takes sole possession of second place. Kester Jeffers is in third and only one point out of second. Kevin Macuiba has a big second place finish and sits in fourth with only two points out of second and one out of third. Jeff Reardon &  Jake Broughton are the only other players who can possible make a run at placing in the top four. With a win they both could go as high as third place for the first half.
It’s now time to play spoiler for the rest of us! Don’t forget ever point counts for the overall trophies.
