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.....

We'll be running a special match play tournament (probably in September) from the shop this year. To qualify, you must be one of the top 16 in points earned at an Aces and Chains tournament this year in one of the main 5 divisions (Novice, Rec, Int, Adv, and Open). Points add up from each Aces and Chains tournament you play in. (other divisions - see below....I haven't left you out.)
If you qualify, you will be invited to play in the match play tournament in your division. This will be a single elimination (ie: sudden death) tournament. Entry fee will be $10. The winner in each division will get the cash, and their name engraved on a trophy/plaque that will be permanently hung in the shop. Each year, a new winner will be added to the same trophy/plaque.
Divisions other than the main 5 will still be able to participate. The number of entrants in each division will be based on the number of players who have earned points in that division. This will be determined after The Wild West 2011. Winners from divisions other than the main 5 will get the cash (entry fees for the AC Finals from their division), and a small trophy to take home.
This is meant to be a thank you to all the players who come out to play in an Aces and Chains tournament this year. It will be non-sanctioned, and all entry fees go straight back out as cash prizes. Hopefully, this will add an extra element of fun and competition to the tournaments this year.
Aces and Chains is proud to present, the second annual Chain Reaction tournament, this time at West Park.
Two rounds of 25+ holes at West Park, for a total of 50+ holes in this tournament. Barring any issues, round one will be from the short tees, and round two from the long tees. Registration/Check in will be by hole one both days.
Registration is open at http://www.acesandchains.com/node/440 and will be available till 8pm the Friday before the tournament. You can also register in person at Aces and Chains Disc Golf Pro Shop - 1706 W. Jefferson St, Joliet. Registration will be available at the shop during store hours thru Friday 6/24. Assuming we have spots left, registration will be open from 7:45am-8:45am on tournament day, but there is a $10 fee to register the day of. So please, make it easy on my team and pre-register......you'll save yourself $10 in the process!

I'd like to provide a replacement basket for Channahon. I'm thinking that 6 could use a new basket, but you're welcome to use it wherever you like. Another option would be to use it for 11 (so you can keep the temp basket in the ground while you work on it.) and then put the temp from 11 in place of 6.
I plan to get this basket by the end of the month. It'll be a Discraft Chainstar.
Thanks to Larry Pennuto for bringing out an extra temp basket. When I called him at 8:30am, it was obvious I woke him up. And yet, a short time later, he was walking up with the rest of the basket I needed. Thanks for the extra effort Larry!
I'd also like to thank Nugget, Joe, Brandon, and my team for helping me unload, setup, break down, and load the car. Jobs that are often taken for granted, but with my bad back, they are greatly appreciated!
To everyone else that offered a kind word or a lending hand, thank you!
Just another quick thank you to Frank and Ellen for saving the tournament!
The course looked great, and the weather held out for us. All in all it was a beautiful day! Frank stopped by for a bit and we had a nice conversation. Too bad you weren't there to hear the roar of applause for you and Ellen at the players meeting Frank. It was enthusiastic to say the least.
I'd also like to thank my team: Cory Clements, Jason Riley, Jon Boster, and Kaylee Barbosa. I know I can count on each and every one of them. Without them, I couldn't run the tournaments smoothly.
It was a great day, and I hope everyone had a good time out there!
