We're Down to 19 spots remaining between the Rec, Nov, Woman's, and Jr. Divisions.

We have 36 spots remaining between the Adv, and Int divisions.

89 players registered so far. Don't wait too long! I will not be adding temp holes, or allowing 5 on a tee box to put more players in the tournament. 144 is the maximum. I will fill spots as they come in. It's possible someone might register after the tournament is full. If that happens, I will refund their money, and offer to put them on a waiting list, or in a different division.

Wow, Paul McCallister and Brian Cummings both looking like youngsters there!

Please remember that you MUST be a current PDGA member by tournament time, or you will not be allowed to play. If the PDGA doesn't show you as current, please bring proof of your membership renewal. If you are renewing any later than today, I would recommend keeping the email, or whatever proof you have so there will be no questions.

We have 25 spots remaining between the Rec, Nov, Woman's, and Jr. Divisions.

We have 38 spots remaining between the Adv, and Int divisions.

1.) 30' Circles at Channahon (I will supply the paint and the sprayer) - Frank & ?
2.) 30' Circles at RBF

why  30  feet and not 10  meters  ?

or I am missing something  ?

Thanks for running this A tier.

Yes of course, they will be 10 meter circles.

I'm also working on the first place trophies for each division. They are going to be sweet! I'll post some pics when I'm done. Every division with three or more players by March 21st will have a first place trophy.

"I can help with Channahon. Spot where needed & the 10 meter circles. I just need the paint & help. I'm going to the gym, trying to get back in shape, but some simple things are difficult, like breathing on the treadmill. Weights on a machine are not an issue, & riding a bike isn't a problem. So, maybe my hero, Shawn McCarthy, or others will give me a hand with that task."

Thanks Frank! I know I can always count on you to help at Channahon.

Anyone want to give Frank a hand with the circles the week before the tournament?

TM could be Tom Matesevec. No phone number on the disc? Why do players not put their phone number on the disc? That would make it so much easier!

Thanks for letting me know you are having issues with the website. I always appreciate that!

I think I fixed the pre-registration issue. Please try it again and let me know if you have any issues.

The discs you will receive from the Trilogy manufacturers will be as yet unreleased at the time of the tournament. The only info I have on them is that they will be a Fuzion Dynamic Discs driver, a Latitude Opto or Gold midrange, and a Westside Bt putter. At least, that is what I am being told right now. More info about the Trilogy Challenge can be found here: http://trilogychallenge.com/

Great job Frank! You never cease to amaze me with the amount of work you do for the disc golf community.

And hey, who was that talented TD you had working the ice bowl with you?

Awesome job guys!

I also have sponsorship forms available at the shop if you don't have powerpoint.

Leagues & Tourneys / The Trilogy Tee Pad Challenge - July 5th
« on: February 16, 2014, 02:49:59 PM »
An unsanctioned disc golf tournament to raise funds for tee pads at West Park.

Trilogy Challenge: A unique format using only three discs provided by Dynamic Discs, Latitude 64, and Westside Discs. Players will play one round at West Park using only the three discs provided by Trilogy - One driver, one midrange, and one putter. The lowest score after one round will win a great prize package of three discs from Dynamic Discs, three discs from Latitude 64, three discs from Westside Discs, a bag, and several other goodies!

All levels of players are invited. This is a great "starter" event for players who would like to get into tournament play. Though we will be following the rules set forth by the PDGA, play will be more casual than a fully sanctioned PDGA tournament.

Cost is $30, with $9 of each player fee going toward improvements at West Park, including, but not limited to, new cement tee boxes for each hole.

In addition, we will be approaching businesses to sponsor additional tee pads at a cost of $160 each. Any business or individual who sponsors a tee pad will get their name/logo on the tee pad sign! I have attached a powerpoint presentation that can be used to solicit tee pad sponsorships. If you wish to help get sponsorships, it would be greatly appreciated! Please do not promise any particular tee pad to any sponsors you get. I've decided that the best way is to assign sponsors to holes randomly in a drawing after we get all the boxes sponsored. Gary may decide to redesign the course as part of this process, so each hole may be completely different than it is today anyway.

Walk ups will be welcome on the day of the tournament. There will be no additional "day of" fee for walk ups.

Player check-in will be open from 8:30-9:15am, with a short players meeting to follow. Tee off will be approx. 9:30am.

This tournament will be limited to 96 players (ie: 4 per hole.) Pre-registration is up and available at: http://acesandchains.com/node/1173

Just a reminder - Register by Feb. 14th to get the long sleeve dry fit t-shirt as part of your players pack. If you register after that, you'll still get a sweet players pack, but you won't get the t-shirt.

"Very much agree! It seems you are really into it and going all out this year and it's pretty damn exciting! Thanks for all that you do!"

"Fantastic. For me, First Flight is the light at the end of this snow tunnel. Your really busting a$$ Patrick, keeping us motivated this winter."

Thanks guys! It's comments like these that keep me rolling. As you know, I normally run 5-6 tournaments a year. But, last year there were just too many tournaments, and I felt it watered down the attendance at each one. So I decided this year to run only two, but to make each one the best I can make it. So, First Flight became an A-Tier, and Wild West is a B-tier. My intention is to continue this way in the years to come, slowly building First Flight into a full A-tier (including the Pros.) Next year I hope to incorporate the new course at Dellwood Park, and to add the Pros as at least a B-tier. If new baskets go in at Highland, then I'll run the Pro's there.

I have added a Trilogy Challenge at West Park on July 5th to my plate, but it's going to be a fund raiser for cement tee pads at West, which we've needed for a long time. And it'll be super easy to run, and a more casual tournament for the players.

Thanks again for the kind words!

First Flight Players Party!

The First Flight Players Party will be held at Traditions Restaurant and Pub on Saturday, March 29th from 6pm-8pm. Your welcome to bring friends, family, or significant others. Every player attending will get one free raffle ticket toward prizes we will give away at the party. One of the nicer prizes we are giving away is an overnight getaway donated by the Hollywood Casino and Hotel. Good for a one night stay at the hotel, and a free dinner at one of their three restaurants. That's an approx. value of $180!

Traditions has great food. So, come on out, talk disc golf with your fellow players, and have a great time.
