course was looking great on sunday !!!!!

ill be there on SAT .
Well, one more work day. I need to focus on the 10 meter circles. You know what's funny, is Rob Gibson. I started the circle on #16 & stopped to whack weeds around the perimeter. He & Kev are playing are playing when they hear the whacker. They come up & Rob grabs the paint to finish the circle. Most give me a Hey! play the hole & go on.
Jesse did some weed whacking at Wed. doubles  on #1.
There's so many good people in the disc golf World that love you Frankie!
                                   Keep up the good work Brother
                                                    :)
                                     
It's great to be alive!
Positive mind helps.

Thanks Randy. I usually don't win the Classic. I checked the records & the past 6 years I won one other time, 2010. I'm typically exhausted. I don't know what happened this year. The scores were pitiful. Thanks again my brother! Take care & get ready for Oswego, I'll see you there.

Thanks to everyone who came out.

CONDITIONS:
Saturday: The temperature was a cool 48 degrees to start and it climbed to a high of around 58 degrees. It had rained pretty hard over night and earlier in the morning making it a little messy. The biggest factory was the wind. The winds were steady in the high teens all day and the gust were close to 30mph. It was an extremely tough day for disc golf.

Sunday: The temperature was a cool 48 degrees to start and it climbed to a high of around 60 degrees with clear skies all day. It was fairly calm until around 11:30 when the wind started to pick up to around 10mph with gusts in the teens. It was a much nicer day for disc golf.

WINNERS
SATURDAY:

MS1 - Frank Grimes - 125
MA2 - Evan Coberly - 107
MA3 - Nick Sustersic - 104
MA4 - Ender Oktayuren - 119
MJ1 - Zach Koetz - 130
MJ2 - John Salinas - 136
HIGHLIGHTS: We had a Sr.Grandmaster battle for the top honors with the Channahon Caretaker winning the war in a sudden death playoff. The top three Rec. players out duel the top three Int. players. Eleven year old Izak McDonald shoots a 956 rated first round in extreme conditions. Junior under 16 winner John Salinas claims the victory by 7-strokes. Anthony Noe aces a ctp 50/50 hole and walks away with over $100 in his pocket.


WINNERS

MPM - Darrin Johnson - 102
MA1 - Dean Bingham - 99
FW1 - Kayla Bradley - 137
MM1 - Tom McCauley - 113
MG1 - Brian Cummings - 110
HIGHLIGHTS: Dana Vicich shoots a tournament best 1029 rated (45) second round to take the Open division by two strokes. We had a three way tie in the Open Master division to force a sudden death playoff. Darrin Johnson prevails on the second hole and takes his second Channahon Classic win in a row. Advanced player Dean Bingham shoots a hot 1006 rated (47) second round to claim the victory. Advanced Womenís winner Kayla Bradley wins by 7-strokes.

It took another huge effort by a lot of people to keep the Classic going. Thank you all and because of your hard work and determination will were able to pull off this great tournament.

That's funny about the hoodie.
I forgot Amos Keister. He does the mowing & did it the week of the tournament.

Jesse needs a lot more credit for running so many tournaments, the doubles league, and still a heck of a family man - to hear his tale is pretty damn inspiring and I can't say enough how much you impact the disc golf community and me personally. Without your hard work and sacrifice to the sport, we would have a lot less fun and action around here.

It really is hard to say thank you to one individual when there really is so many people that do so much to make great tournaments and leagues around Joliet, but I think Jesse needs a special shout out for his work and his love for his family - disc and home.

Thanks for another awesome tournament everyone!

Iíve been in touch with Andrew Sweeton the PDGA Tour Manager and he said it should be fixed sometime this week. Sorry about the delay.
