We're Down to 19 spots remaining between the Rec, Nov, Woman's, and Jr. Divisions.

We have 36 spots remaining between the Adv, and Int divisions.

89 players registered so far. Don't wait too long! I will not be adding temp holes, or allowing 5 on a tee box to put more players in the tournament. 144 is the maximum. I will fill spots as they come in. It's possible someone might register after the tournament is full. If that happens, I will refund their money, and offer to put them on a waiting list, or in a different division.

Just a quick note of thanks to the J-Town Disc Golf Club!  I was truly taken by surprise by being the recipient of the 2013 Member of the Year award!

I truly appreciate the way it makes you feel when your efforts are recognized.  Of course, that's not why I do it, it is just nice when it happens!

I do feel as though you are all my friends and that's why I enjoy disc golf...Here's to 2014 and growing the sport and making new friends and adding to my disc golf family!


I had a feeling when I met you and we got to talking, you would be an MVP in the disc golf community.  just didn't realize so quickly

Wow! Congratulations Kevin! Awesome Award! Perfect Recipient!

I think everyone would agree you should get the best-dressed award too.

Totally agree.  Sometimes its nice knowing from the parking lot that someone so helpful is there.

Please remember that you MUST be a current PDGA member by tournament time, or you will not be allowed to play. If the PDGA doesn't show you as current, please bring proof of your membership renewal. If you are renewing any later than today, I would recommend keeping the email, or whatever proof you have so there will be no questions.

We have 25 spots remaining between the Rec, Nov, Woman's, and Jr. Divisions.

We have 38 spots remaining between the Adv, and Int divisions.

Apparently lost or left my chair behind at the ice bowl. Not sure if it fell off the sled during the round or if I left it in the pavilion as I didn't realize it was gone for 2 weeks until I played the next tournament. If anyone has it, please holler.

"I can help with Channahon. Spot where needed & the 10 meter circles. I just need the paint & help. I'm going to the gym, trying to get back in shape, but some simple things are difficult, like breathing on the treadmill. Weights on a machine are not an issue, & riding a bike isn't a problem. So, maybe my hero, Shawn McCarthy, or others will give me a hand with that task."

Thanks Frank! I know I can always count on you to help at Channahon.

Anyone want to give Frank a hand with the circles the week before the tournament?

I would not miss out on a chance to hang with Frank   :D. I'm in!
That's GREAT Shawn!!! I'll be in touch.
