just one round, correct?
O.K. The CHUCKFest 2011 is now in the history books. 12 people braved the early rains and showed up for a really fun event. A great time was had by all, and I hope turnout increases for next year!We held off on the start for about 15 minutes to allow the rains to subside. The teepads were a little slimy during the first round, but didn't seem too bad. #17 was played as-is, there was some mud and a puddle or two, but very playable. Since the IOS was coming to Aurora the following weekend, the course needed some cleaning. To entice entrants to help out with this, I held a "trash raffle". Everyone that brought back a full bag of garbage after the first round would be entered into the raffle for a 177+ first run X Buzzz from the 2004 Am Nat's from my collection. Everyone did a great job of cleaning up the course. Many bags were emptied and re-filled. The Pro/Adv. card that was following the Am cards was having a hard time finding trash! Everyone was entered into the raffle and Ryan Stilson won the Buzzz.The first round was a little damp, but everything went off without a hitch.We all just sort of hung out for a while for lunch and then started up again for a drier second round.With 11 people entered into the CTP contest, two CTP's were in play, #4 (a short one) and #8 (the long one). Blaine S. took the first one on #4 (for $16) and none of the pro's could top it. Blaine also had the CTP on #8 until Randy Sr. stepped up to the tee and beat him by about 6" to take $17. Once the round was over the scores were totalled and here are the results:Pro/Advanced1. Tafe Hemler 43/42, -23 total with a 175 CE Aviar; $33 and a CHUCKFest 2011/FVMDGC dry-fit t-shirt2. Randy Moore Sr. 46/45, -17 total with a 176 Z Buzzz; $173. Kyle Chapman 48/46, -14 total with a 174 SuperSoft Wizard4. Bryan Jenkins 47/50, -11 total with a 175 CryZtal Z Buzzz5.

Dahlton Schepp 57/56, +5 total with a 171 Champ Wraith7. Wes Lindquist 58, withdrew after first round due to a family obligation.With $24 in the Ace fund, and none hit, we threw off afterwards. We threw from hole #1's short tee to hole #8's basket. Sr. was closest for $16 and Blaine next for $8. This made Randy Sr. the BIG money winner for the day.I hope I can shoot that well at IOS #4 next Sat.! I hope to see more of you next year!
