Due to it being just too much fun Hilltop will host a monthly Dirty Dollar Ace Race. The next one will be July 25th which is a Friday. This seemed like a good date due to no tournaments that weekend within 200 miles and being Airshow weekend I figured we would have a good crowd in town that weekend . If you missed it last time , the game is a ace race with a dollar paid in every hole , if noone hits it it rolls to the next hole where everyone buys in again .

Lou dog hit a 269.00 dollar ace and Joe hit a 66.00 dollar ace . If noone hits a ace on the 18th hole the remaining bank gets split with Hilltop and the ADGA. Come out have a blast and help support your association and hilltop. See you all there

Hey guys, I'm considering upping the pro buy for my tournament to $55-$60 to increase payout. In addition- as I mentioned yesterday- any additional sponsor money I bring in after my costs are covered will be added to the pot. Hope to see you there.

If you havent played the new 9 , its short , technical and a blast to play . We can either play it as dubs or single play . I lean towards dubs due to the low scores and speed of play .

You are betting aces against the house (hilltop) if there is still money after 18 holes the house wins the remaining money to be split 3/4 hilltop 1/4 adga . If interested in playing please help out by bringing 18 one dollar bills to help playing the game easier . We will try to have singles available but bringing your own will help . Thanks and see you Friday

Well as long as we're opening up this can of worms, I lost a star wraith on hole #3 pro tees during states. Kinda just a lame shot that hyzered out left (maybe over the trail?) and deserved to get lost. Anyway, it's a first run, white, max weight star wraith with a snowflake stamp that was the 2006 Innova dealer/promo disc. It's pretty noticeable and I haven't seen another one in AK yet. Has my name and number on the inside rim. Would really like to get ol' Lloyd Chistmas back, he's been good to me. Thanks for your eyes at Kincaid!

Lost my Captain America Boss on hole 6 pro tee. Kept going towards the soccer field. Has my name and number. Reverse dyed Star Boss. Reward if found. Not to many people have the captain America stamp or dye be on the look out. Thanks

At States, I lost a red and black flame dyed Avenger SS on hole 4 at Kincaid (I threw a huge ani from the pro tee that never came back.) My name and number were in it, but probably quite faded. This disc as more sentimental value than anything else (first disc I ever dyed and one of the first discs I bought in AK.) It would be much appreciated if found, it finds it way back to me.
I hope this is an appropriate place to post this. If not, please feel free to remove this post and please direct me to a better forum for lost discs. Thank you, ADGA, for all you do!!

Hello, I was asked to post the following for Josh Jones, his computer is being worked on and couldn't post. See below, vote for Josh Jones = )
Good morning all,
After seeing the state coordinator ballots go out, I realized I completely forgot about discussing sanctioned tournament scheduling and sending out the document I wrote explaining how I will handle scheduling if re-elected. Unfortunately, my personal computer kicked the bucket a few weeks ago, and I am waiting for the hard drive to be recovered if possible. I haven't had a chance to retype it up, so here is the general idea:
In the past, I've tried to work with the ADGA when it was the previous leadership to work together on the schedule. This did not happen as fairly as it could/should have, since their schedule was already set by themselves. So I went on a first come first serve basis, which is not ideal. To make the scheduling more democratic, I would have each region give a tentative schedule to the State Coordinator by the end of October each year. The SC would then come up with a statewide schedule based on the regional proposed schedules by the end of November. At this point, the leaders of each club/region can discuss changes to the schedule that need to be made with the SC and other clubs/TDs. The final schedule will be completed by mid-January
The clubs/regions are as follows:
Anchorage (including hilltop, PC, girdwood)
I'm not sure how to deal with PC and Girdwood, any suggestions are welcome. Of course, if any TD wants to run a event at any course, they will need to work with the local club for initial scheduling. Financing events will be on the TD/club organizing the event, although other clubs are encouraged to help as well.
A couple of things that the SC should keep in mind, from my perspective, are:
1. Recognition that Anchorage has the highest number of competitive golfers and is essentially centrally located. Therefore Anchorage should have the most sanctioned tournaments, assuming there are TDs willing to run events there.
2. Events on holiday weekends should be distributed among the regions, not all in one area every holiday weekend.
3. Either the Alaska Championships move yearly, and prospective TDs bid for it when the regional schedule is submitted -or- the USDGC bid changes events/regions yearly. I think every one wants a chance to win the Biggest title on their home course, but this topic can be discussed among all the clubs' leaders.
I am proposing this system for a couple of reasons. It seems the past the schedule was decided on by only a few people, and made to benefit only a few groups or people while all the other TDs had to work around their schedule. This system is more democratic, because of the proposal of schedules and following discussions and compromises to the final schedule. This is the process for scheduling sanctioned events in Alaska that I would employ if re-elected. Please forward this to anyone who is interested who I may have missed, or who asks about it; Thanks. I look forward to hanging out and golfing with everyone this summer more. Keep on hucking.
