The Dave Pitner Memorial - May 1st-2nd, 2010 B-TIER

This event was formerly the Irish You the Best of Luck tournament held in March.  3 years ago, while running the first "Irish" tournament (held in Elk Grove Village), I received a phone call to immediately go to the hospital because my dad (Dave Pitner) had suffered a heart attack.  I arrived at the hospital and found out that he was dead upon arrival.  The following year the event was moved to Channahon - a larger venue for a larger tournament.  Now the event has moved to the month of May for the warmer weather and his birthday was in May.  He was a Christian, a disc golfer, a former volunteer fireman, a computer systems programmer, and a great dad.

David Scott Pitner - May 11, 1959 - March 3, 2007, died at the age of 47.

Hot stamp design attached.  I'm having this put on some Gateway discs.  My dad was a volunteer fireman for 10 years in Barrington, IL - the inspiration for this hot stamp design.

Keep those pre-reg's coming in :)  Hope you're ready for the first IOS!

It's going to be a busy day Saturday, I'm guessing the 2nd round might be finishing at 5pm, so if you have to start work at 5, you're going to be late.  Maybe there's a better option for you on Sunday?

Pre-reg stands at 66 players Saturday, 48 players Sunday, so if anybody plans on walking up to register - get there early!  Registration opens at 7:30 AM, and pre-reg's have to check in by 8:45 AM.

thanks to everyone that came out!  175 players for the 2 days makes for a fantastic time.  Congrats to Michael Fierke for acing hole #20 and taking home $744!  My estimates are that it was about a 220 ft shot with a nice uphill shot to get it up to the basket.
