After giving it more thought, I decline nomination for vice president. I like what Dave K. is doing. One example is an unsanctioned Ice Bowl. I suggested that a couple of years ago. He has respect from our Disc Golf community & seems to be trying us together.

Lost & Found / Lost Pants at Channahon
« Last post by kentastik on March 14, 2015, 09:22:29 AM »
I left a pair of grey/charcoal muddy hiking pants in the parking lot at Channahon on Wednesday.  There is a sentimental mini in the pocket that I want back, I don't really care about the pants so much.

I heard they were found and hung by hole #1, but when I got there yesterday (Friday) morning they were no where to be found.  I checked with the park district and looked in all the garbages but with no luck.  If anyone has any info, please let me know.  I just want that mini back.
