No changes to Pro, AGM, GM, or the Women's divisions.

A wide spread of points thru the top three of Jon Boster, Jason Riley, and Ben Carrescia. Looks like the 16th spot in Advanced could be highly contested. The difference in points between 6th and 18th is only 30 points. With 16th place at 45 points, anyone could still get in the finals.
Deuces Wild points are finally up on the PDGA. New points totals for each division listed below. There is only one tournament left to pad your totals: The Wild West 2011 at Westpark in Joliet IL on August 27th & 28th.
Please note that if you move up to a higher division, you can still use the points earned in the lower division to qualify for match play in the higher division. (You cannot use points earned in a higher division toward play in a lower one.) That way, there is no penalty for moving up.
As soon as Deuces Wild gets fixed on the PDGA site, I will update this list again.
Need to pad your totals? We only have one tournament left - The Wild West at West Park on August 27th & 28th.
I'm going to try something new to encourage pre-registration. I will be adding at least 3 free CTPs for everyone who pre-registers. If I get a lot of pre-registrations, I'll add more. I have some beautiful Supercolor Buzzz's and Roc +'s that I will donate for CTPs. Mike Kursell's "Zombie Bandit" artwork is on these, and they came out great. That's a $25 value for each FREE CTP. I may add a shirt or two if I do more than three CTPs.
So, pre-register and have even more fun!
Now, here's the official info:
West Park - August 27th & 28th - The Wild West 2011
Two rounds of 24+ holes thru mature oak trees and elevation changes. Come out and see why West Park is a local's favorite. First round shorts, and second round long tees. Players meeting at approx. 9:15am and tee off at approx. 9:30am both days
Pre-registration is available until 8pm the Friday before the tournament, both at the shop (1706 W. Jefferson St., Joliet, IL) and online at the link above. Registration the day of the tournament is available from 8am-9am with a $5 walk up fee.

Hope to see you all there. If you have any questions, post them here and I'll answer them.
Absolutely, Jesse's name should be on that list! He fits the description nicely. Not only does he make a good candidate this year, but he has a long history that fits this award description. Thanks for all the good times at doubles, and the quality ISDGC tournament every year!
I'd also like to plug for Dean Bingham: This guy does a lot behind the scenes that many disc golfers may be unaware of. I think most of us that frequent J-Town understand this, but it won't hurt to mention it here. I just seem to see his name mentioned on every project that gets done in the area. Glad to see you get nominated Dean!
Thor Batchelor has done a fantastic job over at Trinity Links this year. Amazing amount of changes that have made that course more interesting, and more challenging. Congrats on getting nominated Thor!
And then we have the dark horse.....Jason Poole. I say dark horse because Jason is so quiet. He's like Andre Johnson in the NFL.....indespensible to his team, but not the first name to come to mind because he's so quiet and unassuming. Great to see you get nominated Jason!
I've thought about this one a lot. The walk up fee is intended to encourage pre-registration. And I was tempted to stick to my original stance. It just makes the tournament run so much smoother when the majority of the players pre-register. So, before I announce any changes, let me just say this:
Please! If you can, please pre-register!
I've decided to compromise, and reduce the walk up fee to $5 for Deuces Wild. In addition, the first 5 players that offer to help with registration, or whatever else needs doing can get the fee waived.
I'm going to try this as a trial run. My intention is to make the walk up fee less painful, while improving the registration process. If this reduces the chaos in the morning, I may use this model going forward.
I'm also going to make a sign for the Pre-reg only line. Players who pre-reg will be able to walk up, sign their card, get their players pack and be done.
Hopefully, this will improve the process and the experience for everyone involved.
Pre-registration for Deuces Wild is open thru SATURDAY at 7pm. You may register online (see link above), or in person at the store (1706 W. Jefferson St., Joliet, IL.) My thanks to everyone who pre-registers!
I had planned to have Adv. and Pro play the blue tees at Highland, and the longs at Trinity. With that being the case, it's better to keep the other Ams separate from the Adv/Pro divisions for safety reasons.
I'll look at the field on Sunday though, and if I feel it doesn't make any sense to stay separate, then I may put the whole field together, but all on the shorts at Trinity, and White tees at Highland.
