Thanks for the compliments guys.
Its a great honor to win and have my name on the Gary Lewis Achievement Award. Ive known Gary Lewis for over 20 years and Ive seen first hand his life long commitment to disc golf. Ive seen some of the Hall of Fame list of accomplishments he has achieved in disc golf. He has always thought of his fellow disc golfer first before himself. The Joliet area is a very lucky disc golf community to say he is one of us.
The doubles league and the few tournaments I have run are directly modeled after the way Gary Lewis would run it. He has taught me a lot about all aspects of disc golf and life in general.
One of the best parts of winning this award is that the J-Town community thought highly enough of me to vote for me.
I love you guys!
Jesse Saenz Jr.

I need help keeping track of what people are accomplishing in the J-Town area starting from September 2011 and ending September 2012. I started keeping a list but I need help throughout the next 9 months. Frank said he would help but it would be good to have one or two more individuals keeping track. It would be great to have the most deserving and extensive list possibly for the next GLA Award winner. Let me know if you can help. Post under here, email or call me.

If this helps anyone, I'm making notes & putting it off to the side. As Jesse said it started Sept. We have the J-Town board members that get little notice. Jason Poole is quite active behind the scene with the web site & many other things. It may have at some time happened, but he was huge in having a club. Mike Kursell is another is another in the backround. Also, Jason is great help in our tournaments, that's more out in the open. Recently Thor & Dave K. are on my list. I think what I'm going to do is make a list of names & give a # of what I judge as worthy from 1 to 10. As an example the Frank & Beans handicap. Dean does that all summer, & that gets a #.  Jason Poole is the webmaster year round that would get a #. I don't want to make a decision based the last two or three months in the summer.

I also need to mention disc golf in our area is year round. As you know we have winter doubles. Mike Mick & Carbo run that. Something needs to be said for that. When it's super cold they're out there. We don't have to show up but they do. Even though summer league is longer, there is hardship in the winter.
Happy Thanksgiving!

I'm new, I don't know anyone yet, but I am more than willing to help as much as I can. When I do something - like start Disc Golf - I jump in all the way to my head and sink or swim! Don't know if that is relevent, but I guess what I am saying is that I am already in love with this sport and want to do what I can to make it better for myself and everyone else that loves it.

You have Thor & the gang that helps him. Enough can't be said about Jason Poole. Your partner Darrin. My bias is to those with non profit motives, like yourself. It tells me where their heart is when it's for free, & an atta boy for encouragement.

Here's a link if you want to help out.
http://jtowndiscgolf.com/SMF1/index.php?topic=616.0

Also I will need help with IL State. I need spotters on each day and guys who are willing to get there earlier to set up and stay late to brake things down. We will also be having a couple of all out garbage collecting, weed whacking, ball busting clean up days at Highland Park very soon. Check for dates at this link. I'll have the info soon.

 I am very proud to say that I served 9 years active duty and I know exactly how it feels to be deployed and how much care packages and letters from home really impact deployed troops, so I will bring some stuff next handicap or doubles league next week.

I have a weed whacker and can help with work day stuff at Highland. Let's get it done! I'll bring my kids and make 'em pick up trash for ice cream!  ;D

That's GREAT! I need a spirit lift. I know about being deployed also. I also know about being hated when the tour is over. The care packages are for Wed. Maybe we can hook up Tuesday. I'll be there Tuesday & my name is Frank, please introduce yourself.
