2 More Sponsors:

Bakers Square: A very generous donation of 20 $5 gift cards. Can you say Mmmmmmm.....Pie?

Aces and Chains: I've sweetened the pot a little with two 20th Anniversary Buzzz's.

Can't wait to get a look at those 20th Buzzz's.  I really enjoy seeing into the future!   ;D

Haha, my finger slipped! I swear to God!

Ok, ok, you got me. They're actually 10th anniversary Buzzz's.

That would be ironic though.....looking into the future to see something commemorating the past....

Two new sponsors:

Mr. Sub: Very generous donation of 3 $25 gift cards to Mr. Sub. Plus, they have the best subs in the area. Try the Philly Steak - Clayton's favorite! They are usually busy, but always get the order right.

Latititude 64: Svante hooked me up with 5 new Latitude 64 discs! I'll give you more info when I get the order in. I don't need to tell most of you that they make great discs with lots of glide. If you haven't tried them out yet, you should give em a throw.

One new sponsor to add:

Discraft: Always there to help with any tournament, Discraft came thru again with a nice CTP package including a bag, towel, Rapid dry perf shirt, Supercolor "CTP winner" Buzzz and Supercolor mini.

I've almost reached my goal of 20 CTPs for the second round. Come out and join in the fun. this should be a good one, and it's for a good cause. As mentioned, none of your tournament fees will be used for the fund raiser...I'm running it just like normal with the same great payouts. The second round of CTPs will be how I raise funds. Please bring some extra $$$ for the second round. As you can see, we have some great prizes available...you won't be disappointed.

Another sponsor today:

Aurelio's Pizza: Another generous sponsor - gave two $10 gift certificates toward some of the best pizza in the Joliet area. The owner Luke not only supports the sport - this is the second time he's sponsored one of my tournaments - but he also employs a few disc golfers as well.

Three new sponsors to add:

Jel Sert (& Randy Moore Sr.): They are very proud that everything they sell is made in the good ol' US of A. Not just the product, but all the packaging too. Sr. dropped off two very nice Jel Sert boxes chock full of good stuff. You'll have to see it to believe it. He also dropped off a Pro Wraith to sweeten it a little. I've seen Jel Sert donate many times to good causes. Great company, great guy. Definitely deserving of our support!

McDonalds: Donated 10 Extra Value Meals to help us raise money. I spoke with the owner, and he is very friendly. Located just down the street from the shop, stop in for a meal on the way to WestPark.

Discount Tire: Donated 17 coupons good toward a $50 prepaid Visa with the purchase of 4 new tires, or 4 new wheels. Right accross the street from the shop. I can personally vouch for Discount Tire as I've used them many times. They stand behind their service. Check em out if you need new tires, or even just a tire repair.

Here's one of the trophies for Chain Reaction for Rio. Still some details to finish on it, but you get the idea. It's made so you can put your favorite disc behind the chains and it will hold it for you. Or, you can display it without a disc in it.

Pro is gold, Advanced silver, Intermediate is blue, Recreational is white, and Novice is red.

I have trademarked this trophy, so don't get any wise ideas!   ;)

First off, let me just say how proud I was of the disc golf community yesterday. We had a lot of players come out and generously support a worthy cause. My sincere thanks to everyone who participated!

Special mention: Anthony Noe aced hole 3 during the tournament for $84! When I handed him the money during the awards ceremony, he handed it right back to me to add to the funds we were raising for the American Brain Tumor Association. THAT was a very classy move!

We raised a total of $831!

Cash donations were also given by Frank Grimes, Kayla Van Tricht, and Sean Callahan.

A lot of people were instrumental in making this happen, in addition to our generous sponsors listed above. I would like to thank Michael Kursell, Aaron Studer, Kevin Schramm, Jesus Padilla, Kayla Van Tricht, Cory Clements, Marianne Devo-Green, Connor Chwaszczewski, and Larry Pennuto.

If I missed anyone, please accept my sincere apologies. It was a very long day, and by the end I was completely exhausted.

The scores are up as of this morning at 8am. Official TD report has already been submitted, so the ratings for this tournament should show up on the next update.

Mother Nature showed a little emotion during the first round, with some very light rain falling. But the skies smiled down on us for the whole second round. The temperature rose to 80 degrees out and it was very humid.

Total course length with the three extra holes was 7166 feet!

I hope everyone had a great time, and thanks again for helping us raise funds for such a worthy cause. See you at the next tournament...
