Can someone please give me todays date? I don't have a calendar handy. Thanks!
Now that was just uncalled for!
Personally, I was pissed when I first read Jesse's post. WTF? I was going over what I was going to say to the Joliet Park District when I called them.....until I realized what day it was. Lol. Good thing I didn't have the time to call them right then, or they would have gotten a piece of my mind! (and man, would I be embarrassed!)
Now I come back to see who else got fooled, only to see someone had to let the cat out of the bag. Way to ruin all the fun.....
We already have one Int Women's player for First Flight, and I'm putting the call out to all the female players to come out and join her. Let's see if we can put together a good group of players in the women's divisions.
We will have a trophy for a women's division if we can get 3 or more players in one division.
So, consider this a little encouragement to get out there and have a great time with your fellow female players.
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.
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.
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?

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.
