Just an FYI that we are monitoring the flooding situation out a Channahon.  I know that at the moment the entire park is closed.  As soon as I get more information I will let everyone know.  Since we are still 2 weeks away from the event we should be ok, but I will be watching this closely and announcing any changes as soon as I possibly can!

This is the latest information that I have from the park district. We'll probably know by Monday what will happen. I'm currently investigating potential alternate locations where we might be able to move the tournament to should we be told that we can't go forward.

"A crew of people will be at the park Saturday morning to continue with the cleanup. Lots of standing water with large carp and catfish swimming around and the parks dept have seen numerous snakes!
Until the park officially opens back up, I won’t be able to tell you if the tournament can be played. The parks dept are hoping to get back to the course today or tomorrow."

It's interesting what I see, & what's being related to Scott, relative to Community Park & the Disc Golf course. My best guess is I'm being talked to in code. I think they want the disc golf community to come out & help clean the park, like we did for the Ice Bowl. I told them I could get help for the course, but not the park. There are soccer & baseball people that can help. Other than the water & the bridge, the course is in good shape. The park superintendent said he wasn't on the course, he's looking at other parts of the park. It would be very nice if some would come out Saturday. It would say something if you came out Scott. I'll call a couple of guys. The water keeps going down.
One Day at a Time!

I made a couple of calls, Shawn Harmon, Shawn McCarthy, Hose-Bee, & maybe Ish, are going to help me Saturday morning. Harmon's bringing his waders & fishing pole.

Sorry Frank - I didn't see the request for people to come out Saturday until just now.  It's a bummer because I probably could have made it as well.  The way Ellen worded it to me she sounded like it was park people only that would be allowed there, so I didn't follow up.  However, I will be there on Thursday to try to get things set up, check on the pavilion, etc.


I have received official word - the course is OPEN. We are ON for this weekend! Feel free to pre-register if you want to save some money on your entry fee!

When I get out there I will assess if I have to close off any holes (guessing 6 is what's still underwater?) or set up an alternate basket location.

Frank - is there any other work that would still be beneficial out there?

Actually that post was universal. I thought of you at the end of the post. My thought was it gave you a chance to meet some of the park people. Not a big deal.
There is water at the base on #6. My guess it will be gone by  tournament time. We'll see how it is for handicap tomorrow evening.

It looks like the google checkout is not working too well with Firefox. Use Safari or Internet Explorer to pre-register.

There's a good chance that this is fixed now.  I found out that Google Checkout has a newer version of their cart, and I know that upgrading this fixed what was wrong in IE9 if you weren't using compatibility mode.  I know it works fine in Chrome, and it looks happy in Firefox as well now.

Please PM me or email me if you continue to have problems!

COURSE NOTES: I was out there playing the course today. It's in great shape! One major change: Because the hill around 4 is roped off and the basket bagged, there is an alternate pin location. We will play LONG TEE BOTH ROUNDS for hole 4! Hole 6 is no longer under water, but the area around the basket is still a very soupy mud. We will probably use an alternate location for 6's basket and play from the long tees both rounds. I left a flag indicating the approximate location for the replacement basket.

I left flag markers out to mark the temp baskets, but I received a report that they got mowed over :-/ Maybe there is still something out there to help people identify where to find the tees and baskets at! Otherwise we'll get it fixed up Saturday morning.

Course Map.  Note marsh area to the right of 19 is OB, not a high chance anyone will get into that.  Hole 4 and 6 play from Long tee both rounds. Hole 1 water OB after the 2nd foot bridge.  Water on near side of it is casual.  Pond is OB on 2 as well as creek water (bridge is in bounds). There's a small pool of water behind 15 that is OB, and there is water to the left on 16 (tough to get to) that is also OB.  Hole 20 and 21, path and over to right is OB once past the tee.
