Leagues & Tourneys / Re: Random Draw Doubles Fundraiser • Saturday April 18
« Last post by srachan on April 18, 2015, 06:37:26 PM »
Thanks to all who came out to support Highland today at our fundraiser event. We had 20 players out there (and 1 at West Park) and have raised a whopping $400 towards getting new baskets at Highland Park ($240 from entry, $100 from ctp donation, $40 from Aris Pashos, $20 from Thor). Today's breakdown:
-$25 entry
--$10 to payouts
--$10 to Highland
--$5 to (2) 50/50 ctps and Ace fund

Extra $5 donation, which went straight to Highland, for the chance to shoot at every ctp. We had 19 different ctp's. One on each hole with a bonus "second shot" ctp on hole 17. Of those ctp's, there consisted 27 items that included discs, shirts, towels, cups, beer, and cash. We could not have done that without the help of our players. 12 of those 27 items were donated by players who could not even play today, how awesome is that? I'd like to give a huge  thank you for everyone who donated towards this cause.
(Biggest sponsors, both could not play)
-Thor - 4 discs, 2 shirts, and $20 towards Highland
-Ryan Fancher/Unstable disc golf gear - 2 shirts, 2 towels, water bottle
-Kevin Schramm, Adam Brkovic and Mike Stahulak (Zephyrs of America), and Jeff Kinsela all donated.
-Aris Pashos and Steve Rachan donated the other 10 ctps.

I need to give a huge shout out to Aris Pashos for making this event happen. Aris was the man behind the scenes and with the plan to make this event run great. Him and his fiance made some sweet trophies for the top 3 teams. On top of all the time, work, and ctps he donated he also threw in an extra $40 towards our fund. Aris, you're awesome man!

On top of raising these funds, we also brought garbage bags for our players to bring around as they went through the course. A ton of garbage was picked up today, I cannot wait to see how beautiful this course can get over the summer!

I will keep everyone updated with the financial report of where this $400 is going down to the penny, we will be as transparent as possible. To give everyone a rough idea of what the costs will be, check out this link to Discraft's pricing guide - http://www.discraft.com/pricing.html#chainstar. Sleeves: $17 ea, Locking Collar $9 ea, Baskets $353 ea (will be accoutned for). There will be at least 18 sleeves and collars bought (most likely 28 will be needed, details on this later). All of this does not account for cement, rebarb, welding, added protection/security. 

Keep an eye out for future work days! There is going to be a lot of improvements going on at Highland this year. Thanks again to everyone who came out and helped today!

Greetings everyone,

        This summer, there is a ground clearing project starting at Highland park. The main goal is to clear all the downed trees and limbs that can potentially be hazardous and damaging to the course. Mike Flynn has stepped up and laid out a plan. His plan will successfully clean up the course and recycle the cleared debris back into the course. This plan has 3 main phases:

1-Rounding up and piling up all the trees and limbs.
     This will be done over the next couple of months. You will see wood piles starting to form in some key locations. Feel free to add to them if you have some free time.

2-Renting a wood-chipper.
     The budget for renting a large chipper has already been approved. We will need at least 2 trucks and a bunch of strong backs. We will move the chipper to the staged piles and begin chipping them down and spreading them on the course.

3-Finishing touches
    Although the chipping will only be 1 or 2 days, the piles of wood-chips left may take longer to move around. Also the bigger logs will need to be moved to more useful places.

If you have any thoughts or ideas, or would like to volunteer to help with this project please let me know. With such a vast undertaking, any and all help is appreciated. DISC GOLF!
That's Awesome you guys!!! Keep up the good work!!!

WEEK 3 - April 15, 2015
First Half #3
Trinity Links, Lockport, IL

TEES
18 Holes - Par 54-Short Tees
Skipped hole #15 because of flooding.  Instead we played a temp hole to the practice basket called 4b. We’re still not sure where 4a went. Better Call Tom M. A 270 ft hole to the practice basket from the east side of the east building. If you didn’t make it over the fence it was OB and you had to retee.
 

CONDITIONS
The temperature started out around 65 degrees with clear skies. The wind was very strong at around the 15-17 mph range, with gusts easily around 25 mph. All water area levels were up. The course was pretty dry for this time of year.

NOTES
• Once again The Swamps of Trinity ate many discs, but at least no one fell in this time.

• Thanks guys for letting us use the Trinity Links club house for registration. Although it was a pretty nice night it’s great to not have to worry about the weather elements. This makes a huge difference when getting things ready. Every course needs one.

• It was great to see everyone again. We had many new faces that we hope will continue to show up each week. We also hope that the familiar faces that weren’t there will make their way back and be part of this year’s league.
We miss you!

• Kevin “Kid K” Macuiba & Izak ‘IMAC” McDonald win the playoff against some of the best to take the top honors. They shoot fantastic round of 42 (-12) to capture the victory.

• It’s easy to say “Team Youngsters” or Team Future” or something along those lines won big last night. But the reality is that the new generation of top disc golfers in the Joliet area is here and their here to stay. It’s so damn cool to see so many guys in their teens and early twenties with so much ability.
This generation could be the best we’ve seen in a long time or maybe ever! Older guys just suck it up and face the reality!

• Kory “El Nino” Seddon & Joe “Kool” Kolar easily take down the Am/Nov Division. They shot a great round of 46 (-8).   

• DJ draws Cali and ends up with the worst possible partner. Just kidding Darrin! They (he) end up shooting a unbelievable  round of 54. Nice game!

• Hey Tom M. I think guys are still trying to find hole 4a. What’s with that?

• Shout out to Tracy for getting the payouts ready for us. It’s so nice to have everything ready to roll once you come back in after the round.

• Shout out to the Taco Lady!

• Shout out to Twan on his perspective of how the night unfolded.

• Dana Vicich is running the Swinging Bridge Open 2015 this Sunday, April 19 in Pontiac. More info go here:

• Steve Rachan is having a doubles tourney fundraiser this Saturday April 18 at Highland Park. Check it out here:
