Registrations are "pouring in" now. (Sorry, couldn't resist the pun after last nights rain storm.)

The normal temp holes will not be used because all the pavillions on the hill are in use. I'd rather not have an injured picnic goer from flying discs.

I'm going to look over the course in the next few days to see where I can put some decent temp holes. I have a few ideas, but would welcome any input from everyone. Anyone seen any good temp holes used at Channahon in the past other than the four going around the hilly area by 18?

Results have been posted.

Thanks again to everyone who came out to participate. It was a great turn out for my first tournament, and I hope everyone had a good time.

Sundays round had a rough start with a torrential downpour for about 20 minutes at the beginning. But, like the warriors that you are, everyone kept playing. We were rewarded by a beautiful day by about 10am.

Saturday was blistering hot and humid, but the rain held off.

A big thanks to Bill, Cory, Jon, Jason P, Ray, Jason R, John, and everyone who lent a hand with registration, scoring, and hauling items up and down the hill. I really appreciate all your help.

I'd also like to give a big thanks to Dan Pastore for playing, friendly advice, and for donating some sweet ABC discs for an extra CTP hole.

Thanks to my wife Diane (not that she'll read this) for helping out and for putting up with me.

Lastly, thanks to the sponsors - Innova, Discraft, Vibram Discs, ABC Discs, and Celestine Salon and Spa in Darien.

I would also like to give a big thanks to Frank Grimes for all his help. He took a lot of extra time to get the course ready during the week.

That's why we call it Frank's House.

As always, Channahon was a beauty and a challenge, and that's in large part to all of Frank's efforts to keep it that way.

I know that he did a lot of weed whacking, and spread a lot of mulch in the last few days leading up to the tournament. All this, and during trying times too. So, a big thanks goes out to Frank. When you see him out on the course, please take the time to stop and thank him for all his hard work.

And for those of you wondering why the 10 meter circles weren't up to Frank's standards, especially on hole 2, that's because I painted them. So don't blame Frank! Lol. It wasn't until hole 3 that I figured out the right way to hold onto the thing to get a nice circle.

I would also like to thank Ellen Macuiba and everyone at the Park District for working with me, and for the prep work that they did on the course as well.

Another thanks goes out to Scott Pitner for his advice, and for letting me hang around and help some at one of his tournaments so I could see how some of it's done first hand.

I'd also like to thank Ken Loeffler, Adam Gerencher, and Jason Riley for bringing out the temp baskets.

If I've forgotten anyone, I humbly apologize. It was a long weekend, and I'm still a bit frazzled. Getting out to play leagues tonight should help. See you there.
