Shoot The Breeze / Re: Gary Lewis Achievement Award
« on: June 07, 2012, 09:18:16 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.

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.

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.

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 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!

Look on the bright side Frank. In the old days they would just remove the cojones and we definitely wouldn't want a neutered Grimes walking around.

Hey Rob welcome to J-Town. Here's links to the schedules for both leagues in the area. You can't go wrong attending either one if you're looking to meet players in the area. Our Wednesday's league is at Mokena tonight and we should have a huge crowd. You and your son should check it out. I also put the links to our leagues photo galleries.

WEEK 9 - May 30, 2012
First Half #9
Highland Park - Joliet


TEES
18 Holes - Short Tees - Par 54 

CONDITIONS
The temperature to start the round was in the low  70s with some wind. The sun was out and it felt great. The temp dropped into the 50s by the end of the round.  A Very cool ending. The course was dry and in pretty good shape.  A perfect night for disc golf

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.   

Highland Park still proves to be the toughest course in the area. When you have an eight down cashing in Pro/Adv and a five down in Am/Nov you know you have something special. It tests everyone's skills to the fullest. What a great course!

The race  for  the top four spots in each division is heating up. With only four weeks left in the first half the gaps for the top spots are closing in and each week  more players are moving into the picture. It should be a great race to the July finish.
 
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.

Thanks Tracy for getting the payout ready for the night. This is a huge burden of our shoulders at the end of the night.

Next week is THE OAKS  with registration starting at 4:15 - 4:30 pm.

64 Players

TOP THREE
PRO/ADV

Jon Vargo & Dan Osysko take the top honors for the night shooting a fantastic round of 43 (-11) They end splitting 124 bucks. This is a  huge win for Dan O. as he jumps into a tie for fifth for the first half and only two points out of fourth. He’s playing some good golf right now. Tom Matesevac & Nick Austin shoot a very nice round of 44 (-10)  to take the second spot and split 75 bucks. This was a huge second place finish as Tom moves into a  tie for second and only one point out of first. Tom’s game is peaking right now and he will definitely make a serious run for the first half title. Tying for third and winning the ctp playoff on hole #10 were Darrin Johnson & Steve Forneris. They end up taking home $25 each. The teams ended up shooting nice rounds of 45 (-9). Fern & DJ add on a much needed extra point to their first half totals as the rest of the field tries to catch them. They stay on top of the first half points chart.

TOP THREE
AM/NOV

Winning out right with a great round of 47 (-7) were Kevin Yockman & Dan Janes. They end up taking home $32.50 each. This is Kevin’s second time he has won at Highland this year and by doing so he jumps into first place for the first half. He is now on top of the charts alone by two points. We had a tie for second with the teams shooting very nice rounds of 48 (-6). Kevin Macuiba and Adam Brkovic win the ctp playoff on hole #8 to take the second place victory. They end up splitting 36 bucks. This is a huge win for Kevin as he now jumps into a tie for fourth and in striking distance for the top spot. Jake Broughton & Michael Saenz take the third spot and split 25 bucks. Jake also moves into a tie for fourth for the first half and is breathing down the neck of the top three guys. Mikey is now only four points out of fourth with four weeks left. He has definitely moved himself into position to take one of the top four spots for the first half.

The first time brothers won their divisions in the same night. Jason Smith & Danny Tejero take the top honors in their divisions for the night.
Also the first time we had aces by partners in the same round. Thor Batchelor on hole 19 & Danny Tejero on hole 7.

It was a deuce or go home kind of night. Just put it this way a -18 didn’t cash in Open/Adv division and a -14 didn't cash in the Am/Nov division. What the Hell!

Shoot The Breeze / Operation J-Town Storm
« on: May 18, 2012, 07:12:58 AM »
Operation J-Town Storm

I’m going to start collecting goods at the J-Town Disc Golf Doubles League, The IL State Disc Golf Championships & Channahon Classic for the U.S. Army troops in Afghanistan. These care packages will be sent to my son Anthony’s Platoon/Company.  He’s Company was deployed to Afghanistan on April 30, 2012 for 9-months. Although many of our soldiers are being withdrawn from Afghanistan, the U.S. will still have troops there until 2014.
I had a chance to meet about 10 of his buddies or “Band of Brothers” and I have to say the U.S. is in great shape when it comes to whom they are sending overseas to represent our country. At first glance you see a bunch of 18-25 year old kids messing around and having fun. But when you actually get to know them and hear them talk you quickly realize that they are extremely focused and courageous men. They are mentally and physically some of the toughest people I have ever met. They’re highly trained infantrymen that are willing to sacrifice their own lives for each other and their country. When we here the words Army Strong we tend to chuckle a bit, but in reality the best words to describe what these guys are all about is “Army Strong.”
It’s truly spectacular to witness this bond they have for each other and it’s humbling to see them grow together as men in the U.S. Army. They are definitely my heroes!

Many of these men including my son will be leaving their wives and children for this 9-month period. So in this difficult time lets show some of our troops we care and appreciate their sacrifice for our country.

Lets show them what the Disc Golf community is all about.

My son Anthony has been playing disc golf almost all his life, so discs and accessories would be great. He’s been trying to get his fellow soldiers hooked on playing and it seems to be working. It would be cool to know some of our discs are flying in the deserts of Afghanistan.

Any amount you can contribute for this cause would be greatly appreciated. It can be as simple as a pack of peanuts. I’ll start collecting this week and I will continue throughout the year. I’ve a huge list of items that they can and can’t receive. Please take your time and look through it.
Thanks,
Jesse
The list is below and I also attached a word doc with the list.

CARDS & LETTERS
