Absolutely, Jesse's name should be on that list! He fits the description nicely.
Not only does he make a good candidate this year, but he has a long history that fits this award description. Thanks for all the good times at doubles, and the quality ISDGC tournament every year!

I'd also like to plug for Dean Bingham: This guy does a lot behind the scenes that many disc golfers may be unaware of. I think most of us that frequent J-Town understand this, but it won't hurt to mention it here. I just seem to see his name mentioned on every project that gets done in the area. Glad to see you get nominated Dean!

Thor Batchelor has done a fantastic job over at Trinity Links this year. Amazing amount of changes that have made that course more interesting, and more challenging. Congrats on getting nominated Thor!

And then we have the dark horse.....Jason Poole. I say dark horse because Jason is so quiet. He's like Andre Johnson in the NFL.....indespensible to his team, but not the first name to come to mind because he's so quiet and unassuming. Great to see you get nominated Jason!
Aces and Chains - Get you some!

I want to add something about Jason Poole. He spent $1,200 to $1,300 for a sewing machine.  What he did is made an awesome score card holder with the club colors. It is sick! He's a computer geek not a seamstress.
