WEEK 25 - September 16, 2015
Second Half #11
The Round Barn, Manhattan, IL

18 Holes - Par 54
All red baskets except holes 4 & 5 
The night started out at around 83 degrees with souths winds around 10mph and gusts into the high teens. The skies were clear but it was extremely windy in the open field. The night ended with temps around  a pleasant 74 degrees. A very nice night for disc golf! The course is not in the greatest shape. There is a lot of overgrowth throughout the course. A lot of the areas that were groomed in the beginning are not be maintained at all now.

• Please vote for the Gary Lewis Achievement Award

• SL Award gets shitty!

• Only 2 weeks left!

• It’s good to be Cali!

• Al “The Lefty Spaniard” Hermosillo quietly slaughters the pro/adv division by an amazing five strokes. The Spaniard draws Cali and shoots an incredible score of 37 (-17) to claim the victory. This is done with only one extra throw on each hole. Al is now only one point out of first for the second half and he extends his lead to 1.5 points overall. Nice shooting!

• Shooting by himself (Cali) Aaron “Lets Cook” White destroys the am/nov field by two strokes. He shoots an amazing round of 44 (-10) in tough windy conditions. Mr. White has now jumped into second place for the second half and he is only one point out of first. Nice shooting!

• J-Town Fest 2015 Information:

• A new Ace Fund rule only at The Round Barn. If you black ace you double the ace pot!

• Fighting daylight sucks! Good thing the pavilion had lights that we could turn on and off.

• Click link for Lo-res version of this year's Channahon Classic poster.

• 28th Channahon Classic! Preregistration if up!

• Trindo Cash Days

• Discraft Ace Race at Trinity

30  Players
17 PRO/ADV     13 AM/NOV

Hermosillo takes an impressive first place and takes home $95. We had a tie for second with the teams shooting nice rounds of 42 (-12). Kris Hutter & Steve Rachan win the ctp playoff to capture second place. They end up splitting 55 bucks and picking up three big points. Kris holds onto a one point lead for the second half and sits firmly in second  place overall by five points and 1.5 points out of first. He is definitely in striking range to claim first place. Brian Kevish & Matt Coyne take third and split 20 bucks.


White takes the top honors alone and he takes home 45 bucks. Ryan Barcas & Dylan Frederick take second place by shooting a great round of 46 (-8). They split 20 bucks and tack an extra three points to their totals. Dylan keeps himself alive for the second half by moving into a three way tie for fifth place. He needs to play his ass off these next couple weeks to try and jump into one of the top four trophy spots. Mike Eichorst & Edgar Jones end up in third and split shit, but Mike gets a very important extra point. Mike holds onto a one point lead for the second half with a charging field licking their chops to overtake him. Mike says bring it on this is his year! He has also pretty much wrapped up first place overall. All Mike needs to do is show up for one of the last two weeks and he would gaurantee the overall victory. If Mike wins the second half he would be one of the few players to claim the Triple Crown.

Mick McGowan- CTP Party Fund hole #1= $29
Chris Brenholtz- CTP Party Fund hole2 #3 = $29
Steve Rachan- CTP Tournament Fund hole #16 = $28
Al Hermosillo - CTP CFR Disc hole #17
No Aces  $28 to start next week

Mr. Hermosillo takes first and takes home $95. He also takes home a sweet custom CFR disc
Mr. White takes first and takes home $45.

Don’t black ace a hole at The Round Barn or you’ll have to double the pot.

Next Week - Community Park, Channahon, IL
This is the last 5:15 Start

See You Later,

Due to the huge turnout at our single day Marengo tournament and the race to finish before dark, we received approval to split our final IOS tournament in Waukegan. Sorry for this late notice if you have already requested off from work for one of the days!

Division splits (MAX OF 4-SOMES PER CARD EACH DAY):
MPO / MA2 / MA4 / FA2 / FA4 will play SATURDAY, October 10th.
All Other Divisions play SUNDAY, October 11th.

This is our normal division split with one exception - we will have the Intermediate Women and Novice Women play Saturday instead of all women playing Sunday. This also gives women a chance to play both days in a women protected division if desired!

We will be reaching out to everyone that has to make a change in which day they are playing. Anyone that is pre-registered with us and now can no longer make it (or chooses not to play a division that is offered on Saturday), will be offered a full refund of your entry fee.

The pre-registration information will be updated soon (as well as the PDGA website).

Overall we hope that this will be a very positive thing for all players involved. Thanks for making the IOS a smashing success!

Right now we have plans for 2 rounds of 22 holes. There is contemplation for a 23rd hole, but we may leave it as is. That means we max at 88 (or 92) players each day.

Bang those chains!

I have had a bit of shitty luck this year to say the least. The year started off OK after not playing serious for several years because of knee and shoulder problems. I started playing in the J-Town doubles league the first half and started to really improve my game..then the luck started:
..At the Birdie Bash directed by Steve Rachan, there was a downpour leaving West park a mud pit. Between holes 13 and 14 I slipped on the hill and fell breaking my ribs and getting a concussion and of course covered in mud. I pushed on and ended up winning on my card the second round.
...Week 8 for doubles league was at west park on may 20th, which happened to be my 20th anniversary of my first game of disc golf which was also at West Park. I had a great partner and we had a great game finishing -10, but it was 4 strokes shy of the lead and 1 short of money. I skipped off the top the target for hole #2 missing my first ace. Also hit the pole on #10. that's right, 20 years and STILL searching for that first ace with many nears misses like that.
...At the IOS in Oswego, I played a great round and won my card. I was in third place and on the lead card for Nov. I had all the confidence that i was going to win, then I lost my favorite driver and the wind and rain came in and I fell to an 8th place finish.
...J-Town doubles week 10, I have played every week to this point and I am the only one who has played every week and not won any money. But this week is different, by luck of the draw I get Mike Eichorst for a partner. I am gonna win for sure now or at least get some money, right, RIGHT? Nope again West Park is destroyed by a downpour and the event was cancelled. I believe we were -17 after 18 holes with 6 to go but it was cancelled and meant nothing, still no money for me :(
..Just before week 11 at The oaks I got a combination of an eye infection and sunburned corneas leaving me unable to see for a couple weeks and of course unable to play disc golf. I had to quit playing in the league just as i was getting that extra confidence.
...After my eyes finally healed I started training like crazy for the 33rd Illinois State Championship playing nothing but The Canyons and Highland everyday. I was never more ready for a tournament in my life. The morning of the tournament I had to take my 9 year old daughter to the Emergency Room, and I was not able to get to the tournament in time to play. I did still get my players pack with the great stamp design.
..I have been playing a lot casually and no tourneys or league recently but the luck doesn't stop from near miss aces almost every round now to my car being broke into and my wallet stolen to loosing stuff on the course like discs and even cash. I sometimes wonder why i still do it..i love the sport so much, even with all this shitty luck, I will still be out there playing. At the very least I plan to play the final round of doubles at West Park, hopefully my luck will change.
