The nomination process is over. Due to the overwhelming votes going towards one person we will not vote on the nominees. So the winner of the Gary Lewis Achievement Award this year goes to... I can’t tell you. The winner will be announced and presented a plaque at the J-Town Doubles League party on October 16. Sorry I guess you just have to be there to find out the winner.

Frank Grimes - Some of the reasons why he was awarded The Gary Lewis Achievement Award.



Raised over $3500 for Morning Star Mission at the J-Town Ice Bowl
http://www.morningstarmission.org/

Busted ass all year while battling cancer to continually make Community Park one of the most friendly and beautiful places to play disc golf. The amount of time and hard work that he puts into this course is breathtaking.

Community Park in Channahon was in immaculate condition for all  5 tournaments held there in 2010
The List:
J-Town Ice Bowl • Feb. 27, 2010
The Dave Pitner Memorial • May 1 & 2, 2010
Chain Reaction 2010 • June 26 & 27, 2010
2010 J-Town Disc Golf Club Invitational • July 9, 2010
23rd Channahon Classic • September 25 & 26, 2010

Vice President of the J-Town Disc Golf Club
http://jtowndiscgolf.com/SMF1/index.php?topic=8.0

One of the founders of the Frank & Bean’s Handicap League.

Worked extremely hard on getting Highland Park into shape for IL State. Concrete work, stump removal, garbage pick-up, and hours of weed whacking including a couple of hours in the morning before he played in the tournament.

He worked anywhere and everywhere when he was called upon.
 
Sorry Paco that this wasn’t mentioned at the ceremony.


Please feel free to elaborate on anything that was missed or something you feel should be mentioned about Frank.

Franks achievements were not only in the J-Town area. Frank managed to venture off to Eagle Ridge Park in Oswego and put in some high quality tee boxes and to be chased around by the Park District for removing stumps lol lol. So glad to see such positive results for you Frank.

                             Positive, positive, positive!

                                            :)
It's great to be alive!
Positive mind helps.
