On the chance this creature excites himself by exploring DiscGolfScene for signs of his clever deeds, he should note that there is only sadness that he searches for significance by hoarding little pieces of plastic foresaken by others who have a life.

PayPal is setup for the following tournaments: Sunnybrook, Gale Vaughn Memorial, Firefighters Classic, and The Motor City Open.



What if I already did the cashless pre-reg? That's fine, it will save your spot TWO WEEKS before the day of the tournament. If you would like to pay the day of the tournament it will be $5 more. With the tournaments that are taking PayPal we will not take ANYMORE cash less pre-reg's. Paying ahead of time will help limit the long lines we can have at registration, and will in turn help tournaments get started a lot sooner.

Found at Firefighters...

FOUND: A set of keys was returned to me today by Ed. The key faub has 4 buttons and I am assuming it is a GM because the car key is a Chevy. It is on a key chain that has a green tube about 2" long and reads: NORTH AMERICAN INDIAN AS Detroit, MI 48239-1327 The numbers are a little worn so they may not be that accurate. The key chain also has another key (maybe a house key) with a red spider on one side and a blue Spider Man on the other. Finally, and probably the most important de ... more

Folks, we're 1 week away from the Ice Bowl. Our goals for cash and food are $1750/1750 lbs.

Stony sign...

We'll be at Stony in the morning removing the sign and can use some help. We'll be there around 10 am so if you have time we'd love to see you there.



It should not take too long because I do not think we cemented it in. We have some shovels, a pick-ax, a hoist, a trailer to place it on, and some suds for anyone who helps out...
