First Flight, the first A-Tier that has ever been held in the Joliet area, was a success! We had a great time all weekend, culminating in a great show put on by the top 4 advanced players in the ďFinal 9Ē holes at Round Barn Farm. Thank you to everyone who came out to play, everyone who went to flymart, the players party, and who came out to watch the Final 9!

I have a lot of people to thank.

First and foremost, I canít say enough good things about my TDís. Aaron Studer, Kevin Schramm, Paul Kenny, and Mike Kursell all did an outstanding job, and went above and beyond the call to make this tournament a success. Without them, this tournament would never have been possible. Please shake their hand and share your positive thoughts with them when you see them. They worked hard all weekend!
Iíd also like to thank Frank Grimes and Shawn McCarthy for their course maintenance work at Channahon. My apologies to Frank for sending 144 players through the course at this early date. As I mentioned on Facebook, I will not be giving that early of a date to the PDGA as an option next year, even if itís the third option.
And hey, thanks to Terry Miller, the DG Guy for coming out to video tape the tournament! Terryís a great guy. I saw him helping vendors at the flymart, in addition to his videotaping duties. Check out his footage of the tournament on his You tube blog. First dayís highlights can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xIXx2gouBUQ&list=UU_VFGL2488ElJvThosFxaRQ

By the way, I played Round Barn yesterday and it looked pretty good. No problems with standing water at all.

27
Yeah, there are plenty of options for a temp hole or two at Channahon if needed. Of course, I'm hoping it dries up nicely before then. But if not, I have 3 chainstar baskets that I can use for "emergency" purposes.

28
New hole sponsors:

Larry Pennuto
Aurelio's Pizza - Joliet
RQ! Barbeque - Shorewood

29
Thanks Timothy. I really appreciate it! I'll put you on the list.

If you do make it out, try to get some of the tee sponsor signs and sponsor banners in some of your photos. Thanks!

Registration will close on Wednesday, March 26th at 4pm. Of course, if we fill before then, it will close at that time.

Another reminder: You must be a current PDGA member by tournament time or you will not be allowed to play! No exceptions. If you don't show as current on the PDGA site, please bring proof that you've signed up.

I don't think I've mentioned yet that the DG Guy, Terry Miller will be at the tournament videotaping for his blog. Very excited to have him there and to meet him in person!
