Sound the raid sirens, we're headed to Church!

Seems those that follow us on Facebook think we need a little church service before we start our trail of shenanigans this winter. As the majority votes, so shall we throw!



Ypsi Dubs @ Rolling Hills, hope you're ready for the Cha!

Willow this week

Alright, votes have been cast, including mine which is for Willow, and the winner has been decided. Stipulations and if statements aside, Willow is the winner this week.

So gather your bug spray and quarters, we'll be in the woods this week! If anyone wants to stay in Ypsi though, I'm sure Gabe and Rob would love some help at WW as they will be doing some final touches leading up to Saturdays big event.

CHA!!!!

Dan Whitlock   July 28 at 2:31pm

Where to this week?

So the Ace Race is Saturday and Rob and Gabe will be at WW doing some course work to prepare for it. The rest of us however, need to find a place to play! As I personally can't really think of many courses for us that haven't been played recently I'll offer up a couple choices. If you can think of one you'd rather play, offer it up and we'll see what comes out victorious!



My choices are



Parmalee (not sure if we've ever played here?)

Willow

Vienna

Bo Fought   July 28 at 3:30pm

Vienna is tempting if we can Glow too. I know I played the DayGlo Open their or whatever name of the Day/Night tournament. Only time I played there and would love to go back for another shot at Vienna.

Anthony Voss   July 29 at 7:21pm

I'll contact the people who know all that and let you know about glow

Scottie Reslock   July 30 at 12:35pm

Voss, I saw on FB that you voted willow? with Parmalee & Vienna up there that is surprising!

The 24 Chains   July 21 at 2:52pm

Happy Hour!

Final Friday Happy Hour! Ca$h round at Pirate's Bay! Time to get a dose of WaterWorks before the ace race comes around. Meet at 5:30 Tee at 6!

What's a cash round mean? How much?

Dan Whitlock   July 21 at 3:07pm

5 bucks for cash payout at the end... or a disc I believe.

Brian Crouch   July 21 at 3:17pm

word i think i'll head up there. Haven't played water works since the winter so i probably should get a round or 2 in there before the ace race

The 24 Chains   July 16 at 3:47pm

Friday the 18th

The pirates have spoken! Seems an overwhelming desire to attack the Black Locust has determined our next destination.

Bring plenty of bug spray, as many quarters as you can carry and all the CHA you have for an awesome round at one of the best forehander courses around.

July 4th VICTORY!

The voting was close, as it often is with the pirates. Do we celebrate independence at Independence, or cheer our victory at Victory? That was the question that quickly rose in the voting. With a little seesawing and attempted bribery, the victory goes to Victory.



Tis a long sail to get there for most, but Victory Park is well worth the effort, and a fitting place to celebrate this holiday! So bring all your patriotic cheers and jeers and sail with the pirates as we bring in the next year of freedom!

What time for tee off?

Dan Whitlock   July 4 at 2:37pm

Tee off will depend on time people get there. It's a long haul, so if everyone is there in time, 6pm. If everyone is early, we will tee off earlier.

Friday Cass Benton, Meet 5:30 tee 6:00 SHARP

Bring you A game for this one. We are heading out to play this little known course out in Northville. Rolling hills and a majestic splendor that can only be rivaled by Toboggan. The upkeep from the city is as top notch as the casuals that play here. I am smitten with all the splendor and delight ahead of us as we embark on this game of games on the course of courses. Please, present your self near the parking lot of 13 for reg and get ready to rumble. Tarzan, Dirt McGirt, Mace and of course free range pitbulls.
