PDGA / Re: Worlds Smoking Ban
« on: April 29, 2011, 08:30:44 AM »
"What are you telling me Patrick? You're typically against me?"

Lol Frank! Only if we're playing in the same division.....

I think I put it that way because we are polar opposites politically. Or at least, I thought so until I saw this post. Little did I know you were a closet Liberal!

Just kidding Frank. Seriously, every American should be for personal freedom as long as it doesn't harm others. Smoking outside? I find it hard to make a strong argument for a ban on smoking. Cigarette butts are a huge nuisance......I hate them. But, I don't have a problem with smoking them, just leaving them everywhere. And we have a rule against that already.

Lest it get lost in the shuffle, there is a very good reason for the ban in San Diego. Forest fires are serious business, and banning smoking for that reason is something I fully support. But when you add the ban for the New York event, it becomes a completely different discussion.

Speaking of turning Liberal Frank, should I add your email to the MoveOn list? You'll get some great political emails that are sure to make you "chuckle."

As far as it bothering other players, I believe it is common courtesy at tournaments to ask your fellow players before lighting up. That, in itself, should be enough without making a rule against it.

I'm with Frank on this one. While I won't be affected by the ban, I am all for protecting personal freedoms. I see this as a slippery slope leading to a more uptight sport.............which basically takes away everything I like about playing.

Just one man's opinion, and I certainly won't slam anyone who believes otherwise.....

Wow, that's close enough to my day job to shoot down there and play a hole or two for lunch. How cool is that?

Gary is the MAN!

Got one basket, would like to get another. Any volunteers?

We currently have 20 players pre-reg'd, and three women's divisions with registered players. Let's see if we can fill a few of those divisions!

Pre-registration is available here:


Two 18 hole rounds at Shorewood for a total of 36+ holes in this tournament. This is an Amatuer only event. I had a lot of players asking me for a tournament at Shorewood last year, so here it is. And what better course to host an Ams Only event?

Shorewood is one of the most popular disc golf courses in the Joliet Area. It is a short course, but technical, and very well suited to an Ams only tournament. Big arms aren't necessary, but touch and control are definitely key here.

This tournament will fill up. Pre-registration is highly recommended. Note that the last tournament filled by Thursday, so please don't wait to pre-register.

Pre-registration is available both online, and in person at the store. Pre-registration closes at 7pm Friday, May 6th. Registration the day of the event is an additional $10, if there are spots available.

Registration/Check-in will be open from 8am-9am. Players meeting at approx. 9:15am, and tee off at approx. 9:30am.

Both rounds will be played from the short tees.

I would like to get two additional tournament quality baskets, so if anyone has one available, please contact me - I would really appreciate it!

Thank You's / Thanks for the bench Frank!

Hey Frank,

Just wanted to say thanks again.....this time for the new bench on 13.

It's in a great spot, out of the way of people driving, but with a great view of the hole.

Kudos from me too Frank. Great placement.

I was joking with Jon saying that I was glad you moved it, "cause my arm is getting too big for it where it was at." We both laughed....

Then I almost aced it with a brand new Ape that I pulled off the shelf just before heading out to Channy.

Love where you placed it. Though I think that tree is going to take some abuse...

And I think the pond is going to swallow more discs.....

Normal store hours on Sunday are 12-4pm.

I will get there an hour early to allow everyone time to get set up.

So, as a vendor, you can show up as early at 11am and stay till 4pm.

Aces and Chains will be hosting a swap meet on Sunday, May 1st. at the store (1706 W. Jefferson St, Joliet).

$10 per table for vendors (please bring your own table.)

Sell collector plastic, used discs, or any other disc golf item directly to other disc golfers.

Socialize with your fellow golfers

Find that coveted collector disc you've been searching for.

Get great deals on used plastic.

Sign up at the store for a vendor spot, or just come in the day of and check out all the cool plastic.

I'm sorry, we just filled the last spot in the tournament. Come out to Shot Down in Flames at Shorewood next month. I'll try to get another group of women players out for that as well.

I haven't seen it, but I was told it was in yesterday.

I don't know who has been working on #15 at Highland, but I just wanted to say a hearty Thank You for getting it in before my tournament this weekend.

Sometimes it seems like the disc golf gods come down and magically fix these things for us, but I know that's not true. Lol.

We now have two registered. We need one more to run an official division.

I have some nice swag coming from Flygirls for the women's division, so come out and have some fun....
