Congratulations Darrin! Now...... I often say things I may be right on with, with but regret later. Darrin is a hand in glove with Jesse & doubles, it really is huge! I like Darrin very much. Thor is also a big deal. He mentored me with donations for the Ice Bowl & is a big deal for Lockport. Both are my friends, but I don't think most know what Jason Poole has done for disc golf the past year. First the handicap, not only was he there every night but he did the spread sheet to make that process easier. He was involved with everything Joliet did the past year!!! He responded to everything asked of him! Lockport tournaments, Jesse's tournaments, club invitational, the woman's tournament, J-Town web site. Darrin is super & very likeable, & has been around forever. The criteria Jesse said was the past year. I'm thrilled for Darrin, but disappointed for Jason.
One Day at a Time!
Don't stop believin'

I need help keeping track of what people are accomplishing in the J-Town area starting from September 30, 2012 and ending September 30, 2013. I started keeping a list but I need help throughout the next 11 months. It would be nice 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. It's important the beginning months are not forgotten.
Post under here, email or call me.

Have to second Rob's opinion. Jason has been pretty instrumental in handicap the last two years from what I have seen. He also does some amazing work for the club and the website.

Those guys are great and probably should be up as candidates, but unfortunately the nomination process is over and the voting process has already began. 

I'll buy them a drink at the J-Town Fest!
