It was a GREAT day!

Well it was great last day for league, we finally had an ace. Scott McCormick was the lucky one who got $321. Good job Mr. McCormick. Alex Rodriguez won our last CTP, he got $16. Now next week we will have our awards and picnic lunch. This will either be at Old Farm or at the store, depends on the weather. If its raining we will be at the store, if not, Old Farm. I want to thank all players on the league, it was an amazing season. I hope to see all of you next week and next season. It looks like an April start for a singles league. I will see you all next week.
Thanks

One more week

Well it seems like the season is almost over, next week will be the last week. And to make sure we have an ace pool winner we will have our regular round and a second "ace" round. If there is an ace on the regular round then we will be done, if no ace the ace round will start and all aces will split the pot. Also BIG news this week our CTP winner was Rod Duck. This is his first ever CTP win. Next week we will be at JC and the following week we will have our awards and picnic, location to be determined. See you all next week.
Thanks

What....No points!!

As you can see everyone only got 1 point, told you that points would not be posted, gotta keep it a secret. As everyone was aware, I was not there, had to work, sorry all. Next week we will be at Old Farm, I will be there even if I have to work. Alex got CTP this week and Scott got long putt. I will get with you next week Scott. I will see you all next week.

Happy Labor Day Everyone!

Well it's Labor Day again, it's time for our 2nd annual unsanctioned, unofficial Labor Day tournament. The winners will be notified next week. This week was a good week, although no one got an ace. Chad Dekkinga got our CTP this week, $18 for him. Good Job sir. Next week we will be at Cascade and also starting next week the points will not be posted, it's getting close and if you didn't notice, there are only 2 points difference between 1st and 2nd place for both divisions. Good luck to you all.
Thanks

It was good to see you all!

It was good to see all of you again. It was another good week for golf and I for one had fun. Now we had 2 winners this week, Randy Shreve was our CTP winner. He won a Craig's Cruiser card with 3 activities on it, he will probably go clean up the mini golf coarse. Also we had Chuck White get the long putt, he got $14. Good job to you both. Next week we will be at JC, hope to see you all there, and if we are lucky, Mr. Duck might actually show up....who knows? See you all there!

Robert Duck   August 12, 2013 at 9:35am

as much as we could, If I find out who the dumb ass is who keeps vandilizing the pads I will prosacute but yeah we filled in the name and corrected the spelling.

Tyler Sherman   August 12, 2013 at 8:40pm

yeah that is bull**** someone is out there trying to destroy it already. Respect for all the hard work you guys have put in i know they will be much appreciated by the people who golf there.

Robert Duck   August 11, 2013 at 9:44pm

Super Pissed Off

OK, Time for me to Vent - Anyone who has information leading to the prosecution to the dumb-ass who vandalized Old Farm Park tee Pads on Aug 11th between 3:30pm and 8:15PM will get a reward. If I catch the subject or subjects Someone have bail money Im super pissed off. 5 Volunteers worked their butts off and Ducks Lawn Care donated over 24 hours labor that amounts to about $240.00 today. Very Upset

It seems that no one, including myself does not want to get an ace, what's up with that? But the league is not over yet, hopefully it will happen soon. Now next week we or I mean you all will be at Cascade, I will be at a family event. But I will be back the following week.

Well it was a good week out on the links, some of us were there, some we not. Our CTP winner this week was Mr. Corey Alberda, he won $14, congrats to you sir. Well I almost saw an ace today, Scott McCormick drove 18 and skipped his disc into the pole. A little higher and he would have got it, better luck next time to you all. Now a little serious item, it has been brought to my attention that a couple of you are concerned with what happens to the league money. I will break it down briefly f ... more

I will be at Old Farm 8:00am to 9:00 am arrival - we will be having a crew out there working on 4 tee pads at once. This will be extremly hard to do and keep watchful eye on on the cement so we have no more vandalizum. I am asking anyone from league or the Disc Golf Community to stop by Old Farm Sunday afternoon and help keep people off the cement until its dry.

Walt Smith   July 28, 2013 at 6:26pm

It rained a little....

Well we were all rained on a little today, but hey, at least we showed up. Not a lot to say this week, but I will mention both of our winners. First there was Frank White, he was our CTP winner, and then we had Chris Markel, he was our long putt winner. They both got $14. Congrats to both of you. Next week we will be at Old Farm, get to see how those new pads are. And another week without an ace, maybe soon though. See you all next week.

His name is Chad Dekkinga, and he has a PINK disc bag. (Sorry Chad) He is a welcome addition to the league, make sure you all say Hello to him next week. Our CTP winner this week was Mr. Randy Shideler, he got $17. Next week we will be at Cascade, I for one am looking forward to it. And again no ace this week, maybe next week. I'll see you all there.

Just want to see who reads these things, let me know next week or with a message if you like the title. Well this week we played JC and it was actually a good week, everyone was below par, and I think everyone had fun. This weeks CTP winner was Chuck White, we gotta stop letting him have all our money.

Its hard to name these things....

Well it was good to see you all this week, but its hard to name these things each week, might have a better title next week. Congrats to our CTP winner this week, Chuck White, he walked away with $17. Now has anyone seen the ace pool lately? It's getting crazy, we need a winner soon, I mean I'm trying, but hey we all need to try. And how about the AM3 team, they are just running away with it, oh and the AM1 and AM2 leaders are doing good as well. We will be at JC next week, hope to see you all.

It was good to see you all today, the cool kids were there, and some cool kids were absent. It will be nice if we can all get together again. Our CTP winner this week was Rex Loveless, and since he was there last week he also won that money, he walked away with $29 today. Now as you can see from the new stats, our Ace pool is starting to get up there, I would like to give that away soon, so come on someone get an ace. We will be at Old Farm next week, I hope to see you all there.

OK So here is what we decided. The park is a little wet, but it should'nt be a problem. We may have to adjust for some water, but we will play Lamar as planned. Remember we just want to mix it up a little, we hav'nt played this park and it's way too late to change parks now.I hope to see you all there on Sunday despite the mud that will be waiting for us.

Good Weather

Well it was a good weather day finally. We had a good group of people out there, and it just was a good day. Our CTP winner this week was Chris Markel, he got $17. In the next few weeks I will be breaking the teams into AM1 and AM2, also I will restart the points. Next week we will be at Old Farm and it looks like we may try Lamar Park the following week. I hope to see you all there.
