Just a reminder - Register by Feb. 14th to get the long sleeve dry fit t-shirt as part of your players pack. If you register after that, you'll still get a sweet players pack, but you won't get the t-shirt.



"Very much agree! It seems you are really into it and going all out this year and it's pretty damn exciting! Thanks for all that you do!"

"Fantastic. For me, First Flight is the light at the end of this snow tunnel. Your really busting a$$ Patrick, keeping us motivated this winter."

Thanks guys! It's comments like these that keep me rolling. As you know, I normally run 5-6 tournaments a year. But, last year there were just too many tournaments, and I felt it watered down the attendance at each one. So I decided this year to run only two, but to make each one the best I can make it. So, First Flight became an A-Tier, and Wild West is a B-tier. My intention is to continue this way in the years to come, slowly building First Flight into a full A-tier (including the Pros.) Next year I hope to incorporate the new course at Dellwood Park, and to add the Pros as at least a B-tier. If new baskets go in at Highland, then I'll run the Pro's there.

I have added a Trilogy Challenge at West Park on July 5th to my plate, but it's going to be a fund raiser for cement tee pads at West, which we've needed for a long time. And it'll be super easy to run, and a more casual tournament for the players.

Thanks again for the kind words!

I can help with Channahon. Spot where needed & the 10 meter circles. I just need the paint & help. I'm going to the gym, trying to get back in shape, but some simple things are difficult, like breathing on the treadmill. Weights on a machine are not an issue, & riding a bike isn't a problem. So, some help will be appreciated.

Good for you Frankie! I find the gym a great place to find positive. Sometimes I go there 3 times a day but only exercise once. People are warm and I want to live longer.
It's great to be alive!
Positive mind helps.

Thanks Frank! I know I can always count on you to help at Channahon.

Anyone want to give Frank a hand with the circles the week before the tournament?

Please remember that you MUST be a current PDGA member by tournament time, or you will not be allowed to play. If the PDGA doesn't show you as current, please bring proof of your membership renewal. If you are renewing any later than today, I would recommend keeping the email, or whatever proof you have so there will be no questions.

We have 25 spots remaining between the Rec, Nov, Woman's, and Jr. Divisions.

We have 38 spots remaining between the Adv, and Int divisions.

We're Down to 19 spots remaining between the Rec, Nov, Woman's, and Jr. Divisions.

We have 36 spots remaining between the Adv, and Int divisions.

89 players registered so far. Don't wait too long! I will not be adding temp holes, or allowing 5 on a tee box to put more players in the tournament. 144 is the maximum. I will fill spots as they come in. It's possible someone might register after the tournament is full. If that happens, I will refund their money, and offer to put them on a waiting list, or in a different division.
