WEEK 1 - April 12, 2017
First Half #1
The Round Barn-Manhattan, IL

Women All Silver - Par 54
Pro/Adv All Reds except hole 5 - Par 54
Am/Nov All Reds except holes 4&5 - Par 54

The night started out at around 65 degrees with clear skies and fairly calm winds. As the round began the winds from the NE picked up with gusts into the 20 mph range, causing havoc on the water holes. The temperature dropped into the low 50s by the end of the night making it a chilly ending. The course is pretty much dried out and in great shape. It was a great night to start the season..

This year will have an all womens division. We will keep points the same way as the other divisions. We will have one first half winner, one second half winner and one overall winner. We had four women the first week and we hope more women will come out throughout the year. Please spread the word. 

• 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!

• Please don’t be discouraged if you’re an AM and had a rough first night. Shake it off and try again next week. The more you play and learn from the league’s more advanced players the better your game will evolve. We’ve all been through this stage. We’ll see you next week.

• Bree “Breezy” McDonald and Brooklyn “Kid Crush” Odrowski take first place in the all new women’s division, by shooting a fantastic round of 53 (-1). Great shooting ladies!

• Al “Lefty” Hermosillo and Steve “Briggs St.” Rachan shoot a ridiculous 40 (-14) to easily clam the first night of 2017’s Pro/Adv Division. Considering the winds their round was extremely impressive. They make the first big jump on the leader board!

• Kevin “The Kollector” Keating and Tyler “Ty-Won” Wollenberg put an old fashion whipping on the Am/Nov field. They won by 3-strokes shooting a fantastic round of 45 (-9) . They claim the first night of the 2017’s Am/Nov Division. Great shooting guys!

• Shout out to the Taco Lady for feeding us after the round. 

• Good luck to the locals are playing The Rumble this weekend in Moline.

• Don’t forget tomorrow is Fotoshop Friday!
The next four J-Town Black Market Trading Cards will be released.

56 Players
4 Women

Hermosillo and Rachan take the top honors. They end up splitting 110 bucks. They take the early lead on leader board. Ryan Barcas & Nick Austin take second place shooting a great round of 42 (-12). They end up splitting 73 bucks and grabbing 3 points. Rounding out the top three were Steve Forneris and Kory Seddon They shot a very nice round of 43 (-11) and end up splitting 37 bucks. 


Keating & Wollenberg take the top honors they end up splitting 65 bucks. We had a three way tie for second with teams shooting nice rounds of 48 (-6). Steve Vinyard & Marc Borowski take second place winning the ctp playoff on hole 1. They end up splitting $36 and grab 3-points. Matt Ogg & James Holt settle for third splitting 24 bucks. 

Steve Rachan - CTP Party Fund hole #1= $51
Kevin Keating - CTP Party Fund hole2 #7 = $48
Eric Fite Sr. - CTP Tourney Fund hole #10  = $47
Kory Seddon - CTP CFR Disc hole #17
No Aces $53 to start next week
Briggs St. Rachan takes first and also hits a money ctp. He takes home $106 on opening night.
Kevin Keating takes first and wins a money ctp and he takes home $80.50 on opening night.

When throwing an event at The Round Barn and you decide to play the reds on hole 3 & 4 and the wind gusts are close to 20 mph from the northeast, you better give Kevin Keating a personal invite.

See You Later,

Leagues & Tourneys / 2017 DISContinuum Club Challenge
« Last post by pooleje on January 16, 2017, 05:26:27 PM »
Where: Lemon Lake County Park, Crown Point, IN
When: 4/8/17
Check-in will be 8:00 AM to 9:00 AM.  Tee-off will be right around 9:45 AM (Subject to change)
Cost: Free (J-Town Disc Golf Club will cover any fees for J-Town players)
Who: Clubs will include Basket Cases, DISContinuum, Fox Valley, J-Town, and Union. (Subject to additions)

It's time to defend our title from last year! If you are interested in playing for team J Town, please post your PDGA # and rating on this post. I would like to have our team roster ready by the end of March at the latest. The highest rated players for each pool will be selected. However, there will be captain picks for each pool. The board members need to discuss this part. Please read all of the info below. You must be a current 2017 J Town club member. We will have memberships to sell that day, but please try to become a member before the day of the event. We ran out of tags last year. Also, please check your schedules to make sure you can play. Every year several players state that they are coming, and then back out a week or two before. A full team is needed to be successful at this challenge, and scrambling to fill spots is a headache I'd rather not deal with.....again.
Let's do it again, J Town!
Sweaty Hugs!

J-Town Disc Golf Club is looking for club members to commit to this event.  Format will be 2 rounds of singles.  Members will be divided into 4 division (A:950+, B:925-949, C:890-924, and D:<890).  Best 5 finishing positions for each division per round will count towards the club total.  Lowest club total wins.

Field limited to 10 members for each division from each club.  J-Town will decide our roster based on the following: 8 spots will go to the highest rated sign-ups, the other 2 spots in each division will be Captain's choice.  Dave Kociuba will be the Captain for J-Town Disc Golf Club this year.

Please reply to this post (PDGA #, Name, and Rating) if you want to represent the J-Town Disc Golf Club.  I will periodically update this post with our roster.  You will need to be a club member to play (we will have memberships available at the event).
