A lot of thank yous for this one.....
Thanks to Mike Kursell for the great artwork for the tournament stamp, and for making scorecards for the tournament.....both of which received a very favorable response from the players. This guy is an amazing artist!
A big thanks to Cory Clements for helping with registration, scoring, and all the things he usually does on tournament day. He also stayed late on Friday getting all the leaderboard cards ready. As if that wasn't enough, he took the lead on Sunday, and let me go play in Rec. Had a blast getting my butt kicked by all the Rec players.......so thanks for that Cory! Lol.
Jason Riley was there to help with the leaderboard as always. What can I say.....consistency is priceless. Thanks Jay!
Thanks to Larry Pennuto for helping with the scoring, and running the video camera. Can't wait to see what the footage looks like...
A big thanks to Dan Pastore for coming out and bringing some CTPs for the players. He also let players try out his (soon to be released?) Screamer disc during lunch. Dan runs ABC discs, a local disc company from Sycamore, IL. If you haven't checked out his discs yet, try one out. We have the money putters in, and I'll be putting drivers on the shelf this week.
Thanks to Frank Grimes for stopping by to say hi. It was good to see you, and I appreciated the special trip you made to see how the tournament was going.
Thanks to Tim for bringing out the hot dog stand again. Tims a great guy. If you see his stand at a disc golf course near you, stop by to say hi and get a great burger or dog.
There were other volunteers who helped as well, like Jacob Burton, Jon Boster, Kaylee Barbosa, Ken Loeffler, and I'm sure I missed a few. My thanks to everyone who helped make the tournament run smoothly.
