Greetings. Finding this site brought back a lot of memories. I was born in Peoria, but grew up in and around Chicago, mostly in Bolingbrook. I got my 1st Frisbee around 1970, and was hooked. Around 1975 I got Dr Stancil Johnsons Frisbee book, and soon after joined the IFA and started playing object golf. I also met two cool dudes from the other IFA (Illinois Frisbee Assn) and they informed me of the course going in at West Park. I started playing there soon after the course opened, and then Shorewood and New Lenox. Also played a couple courses on the North side, Wilmette and Libertyville I think. I reside in Florida now, but was just up there recently, and got to play the Dellwood course for the 1st time, and eat at Portillo's again, of course.
Thanks to all the good people in J-town who helped get disc golf going, and keep it going there. I've been playing DG for 40 years now, and will always consider West Park to be my home course. Dellwood was fantastic by the way, I only wish that we had it earlier!
