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.

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.

Leagues & Tourneys / Re: Trinity Lake Open

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!
