I'm definitely going to try to make this one. Had a blast last time.
Loved the story for the trophy last time. "45 dollars!" Still makes me laugh and cry at the same time.

Here's the current tee plan:
Pro/Adv: Blue tees (Longs) first round and White tees the second (normal).
All other AMs: White tees both rounds.
I don't plan on using the Red tees at this tournament. Both the Blue, and the White tees have concrete pads. The Reds are still natural.
The White tees are hard enough at Highland. Making anyone below Adv play the Blue tees could be against the Geneva Convention.....
Aces and Chains is proud to present our first tournament of 2011:
April 9th - First Flight 2011 at Highland Park
Two 18+ hole rounds at Highland Park for a total of 36+ holes in this tournament.
Highland Park is ranked as one of the best disc golf courses in the state of Illinois by the PDGA State Coordinator. This is an extremely tough course. It has great variety, with a lot of elevation, and a high risk/reward factor. Come out and enjoy a true challenge at Highland Park.
This tournament will fill up. Pre-registration is highly recommended.
Pre-registration is available both online, and in person at the store (Please bring cash only if registering at the store.) Pre-registration closes at 7pm Friday, April 8th. Registration the day of the event is an additional $10. Please try to pre-register. We'd like to eliminate registration for the morning of the event if possible.
Register online at http://www.acesandchains.com/node/438
Registration/Check-in will be open from 8am-9am. Players meeting at approx. 9:15am, and tee off at approx. 9:30am.

By the way, Shae won the putting contest. Prize was three Vibram putters, and any disc off the wall. Congrats Shae! (I think it's Shae, not Shay right?)
45 Dana Vicich 26228 985 62 960 51 1016 59 991 54 994 -4 226 $44
62 Nick Austin 34882 962 61 969 52 1006 62 966 58 956 +3 233
By the end, Dana moved up to 45th. I saw Nick on the list, so I added him too. Not sure if I missed any locals. I went thru the list pretty fast.
It's not listed on PDGA yet. I just spoke to them today. They've had my check for a while, and they promised to get it up on the site today.
You have to give J-town kudos for having it on the calendar before the PDGA does. (Thanks Jason!)
A few new items:
Deuces Wild will be moved to Oswego and Jericho Lake. I am working on this now.
I've added one more tournament since the calendar looked so empty. It's at West Park on Aug. 27th and 28th. I'll update the first post...
I've had a few questions about the putting contest.....
We're going to have 3 windows for the putting contest on Sunday- noon, 2pm, and 4pm. That allows players who show up at different times the opportunity to still participate. Whoever gets the best score from all the participants will be the winner. So, obviously, the winner won't be announced until after the 4pm window is closed.
More details to follow....
I think we all know that Innova's discs have a tendency to change slightly over time due to differences in the plastic used, which mold, what time of year, was it humid or not, hot or cold out, etc. etc.,
So, even though it might just be two different guys marking the discs, there might still be a corollation (sp?) between the different markings and a difference in the discs. What if, say, one of them works the day shift, and the other works the night shift? Could that cause enough difference between discs of the same model that you would notice a difference in the flight pattern or wear characteristics?
Or it could just be your weird plastic "fetish"
Aces and Chains disc golf pro shop has it's official grand opening this coming weekend;
Saturday March 5th from 11am-6pm

-We'll have free food and bottled water while supplies last

-Portable basket raffle (free ticket with any purchase.)
Stop by and check us out!
Spring hours start Monday, March 7th (ie: after the grand opening.):
According to Innova, there is no difference between a Destroyer marked D, or DS, other than who marked it. Apparently, one guy there likes to mark them D, and the other marks them DS. This is according to my sales rep at Innova.
Not saying I know it's true.....just relaying what Innova told me.
Now open on the weekends as well.....
A picture of the shop is up on the website: www.acesandchains.com
Inventory is starting to go up online as well. I hope to have all of it up by the grand opening. Free shipping for all online disc orders in the continental U.S.! Still the same great prices as in the store.
Frank, Thanks for stopping by to see the store. Sorry I missed you.
