Deuces Wild 2010 - July 10th (Sunday only) - Trinity Links and Highland Park

Date change: The majority of my team will be playing Indiana State on Saturday. So, I've turned this into a one-day tournament on Sunday, July 10th. The players are to meet at Trinity by hole 1. Both courses are within a few miles of each other. Pros/Advanced will play Blue tees at Highland first, then the long tees at Trinity. The rest of the Ams will play Shorts at Trinity first, then the white tees at Highland for the second round.

AM/Pro C-tier tournament. One 18+ hole round at Highland, and one 18+ hole round at Trinity for a total of 36+ holes in this tournament. Special player pack prize awarded to the player with the most deuces over both courses in each division. Minimum 3 players in each division.

Please select which division you intend to play in. Note that ranked PDGA members cannot play in a division lower than where they are ranked.

Pre-registration is available online until 7pm the Saturday before the tournament, and in person at the store (1706 W. Jefferson St, Joliet, IL) until close of business that same Saturday. We are strongly encouraging pre-registration this year. We will also have registration available the day of the tournament between 7am-9am at Trinity Links, but it will be $10 extra. Please help us smooth the process out by pre-registering. Our thanks in advance to everyone who pre-registers!

Tentative Schedule:


Pro Open/Advanced: Highland Blues first round, Trinity Longs second round

All other Ams: Trinity Shorts first round, Highland Whites second round.

Players meeting at approx. 9:15am at Trinity, and tee off at approx. 9:30am (Trinity) & 10:00am (Highland).

Pre-registration is available here: http://www.acesandchains.com/node/441

A lot of thank yous for this one.....

Thanks to Mike Kursell for the great artwork for the tournament stamp, and for making scorecards for the tournament.....both of which received a very favorable response from the players. This guy is an amazing artist!

A big thanks to Cory Clements for helping with registration, scoring, and all the things he usually does on tournament day. He also stayed late on Friday getting all the leaderboard cards ready. As if that wasn't enough, he took the lead on Sunday, and let me go play in Rec. Had a blast getting my butt kicked by all the Rec players.......so thanks for that Cory! Lol.

Jason Riley was there to help with the leaderboard as always. What can I say.....consistency is priceless. Thanks Jay!

Thanks to Larry Pennuto for helping with the scoring, and running the video camera. Can't wait to see what the footage looks like...

A big thanks to Dan Pastore for coming out and bringing some CTPs for the players. He also let players try out his (soon to be released?) Screamer disc during lunch. Dan runs ABC discs, a local disc company from Sycamore, IL. If you haven't checked out his discs yet, try one out. We have the money putters in, and I'll be putting drivers on the shelf this week.

Thanks to Frank Grimes for stopping by to say hi. It was good to see you, and I appreciated the special trip you made to see how the tournament was going.

Thanks to Tim for bringing out the hot dog stand again. Tims a great guy. If you see his stand at a disc golf course near you, stop by to say hi and get a great burger or dog.

There were other volunteers who helped as well, like Jacob Burton, Jon Boster, Kaylee Barbosa, Ken Loeffler, and I'm sure I missed a few. My thanks to everyone who helped make the tournament run smoothly.

Fixed. Thanks for the heads up!

Yes, you are correct. Players are to meet by hole 1 at Westpark.

How about Channahon - who designed Community Park?

One tournament a month, while doing all that prep, marketing, etc. while holding down a full time job is amazing. Totally crazy. How can you not respect a guy like that?

Then again, you amaze me as well. My back hurts just thinking about all the lifting, stooping, carrying, and what-not you must do each day you work out there at Channahon. I couldn't do it. I'd be laid up for months.

Keep up the good work Frank, and thanks for the story. Someday I'd like to sit down with you and just listen to you tell story after story about the old days.

Ordered 7 trophies yesterday. 5 will be used for the main five divisions. First two divisions with 2 or more pre-reg'd players will also get a trophy. If we get more than 7 divisions pre-reg'd in time, I'll order more trophies.

So get those registrations in:

Paul Mac stopped in the shop about a month ago. Said he was driving by, saw the sign, and had to stop. He signed a 44 mold for us too! That was pretty cool.

Until he stopped in, I didn't know there was anyone besides Gary. Care to tell us a story about the old days Frank? I'd love to hear more about Paul and Gary...

I thought there were 6 temp holes last year....so, 24 holes in all.

However, I think the Pro/Adv day had different temp holes than the "Ams" day did.

Highland is a tough course Steve, but Jesse and the J-town boys run a quality tournament. Probably the best in the area. See you there.

That new green on #11 at Channahon is starting to look mighty nice!

And was that a new tree behind tee box #3, or was that there all along? You've done so much work this year Frank, that I'm beginning to think I'm seeing old things as new.........

Wish that worked for you and I.  Lol.

Hope the tourney is going well Thor!

They posted Saturday OT yesterday at lunch, so (once again) I am unable to make it out. So, let's see.....that's The Pitner Memorial, Oswego Open, and Trinity Links Open I've planned on attending, but had to miss this year. I'm beginning to think I'm not meant to play any more tourneys this year.....

Wish I could be there!
