First Flight, the first A-Tier that has ever been held in the Joliet area, was a success! We had a great time all weekend, culminating in a great show put on by the top 4 advanced players in the ďFinal 9Ē holes at Round Barn Farm. Thank you to everyone who came out to play, everyone who went to flymart, the players party, and who came out to watch the Final 9!

I have a lot of people to thank.

First and foremost, I canít say enough good things about my TDís. Aaron Studer, Kevin Schramm, Paul Kenny, and Mike Kursell all did an outstanding job, and went above and beyond the call to make this tournament a success. Without them, this tournament would never have been possible. Please shake their hand and share your positive thoughts with them when you see them. They worked hard all weekend!

Iíd also like to thank Frank Grimes and Shawn McCarthy for their course maintenance work at Channahon. My apologies to Frank for sending 144 players through the course at this early date. As I mentioned on Facebook, I will not be giving that early of a date to the PDGA as an option next year, even if itís the third option.

And hey, thanks to Terry Miller, the DG Guy for coming out to video tape the tournament! Terryís a great guy. I saw him helping vendors at the flymart, in addition to his videotaping duties. Check out his footage of the tournament on his You tube blog. First dayís highlights can be found here:

Patrick -

Thanks for asking me to help out!  I'm glad to have done it for you.  It was an outstanding experience start to finish!  I learned a few things along the way and I think some if not many of the players did as well.  I hope you consider asking me to help again!

Thank you!

Kevin Schramm
