J - Town Invitational (Mokena)
« on: May 29, 2012, 10:39:08 PM »
I can't say enough about Jason Poole & this tournament! First he had to make a plan. I have a layout  if your interested. He ten made loops every 20' or 25' on 6,600' of line, that was for the flags. Guess how long that took? He then went out, along with Frankie &  Steve Rasberger & laid out the line. Part of that process was putting in whiskers that were used as reference points & then walk back & run the line. Then of course all that had to be removed. Thanks to the guys that picked up the pins for us. Ray Hill was huge in stepping in to help. I'm thankful he came back from North Woods to help! His spirit was 2nd to none. Now Tom McManus with the extra baskets & pads, not one gripe, maybe one, I was playing with the horn, & in his special way told me to knock it off! Those of you that know Tom, know he has a special way with words  :)  Then took the stuff to Fox Valley. What a guy! Back to Jason. He did all the registration, contacts with the PDGA, & the Mokena Park District. All the behind scenes work. The Park made a sign closed for tournament. That was awesome! I was the puppet TD. You may hear that term in the future.
Great job people!!! It was free to J-Town members!
FYI, this will happen again for the USDGC qualifer in August.

Thanks to Frank and Jason. What a great time. A huge amount of work went into setting up that course. Thanks to the park district for closing the course just for this event.

A very special day.

The temp holes were great!
