Last night we learned that there is not enough daylight for the full 25 hole layout yet. Next week we will still start at 5:30 promptly, but only play 18 to 21 holes. Two new League Members were welcomed to our group last night, TaylorM (#63) and BrianC (#64); great to have you guys ! CTPs won were: hole 8 (2nd shot clot) to JasonS and myself, hole 11 to JoeyM, and hole 12 to Cali guy DougieFresh.

People here do not appreciate how good we Florida players have it. I bet if we were in Minnesota in winter there would have been plenty of players with the conditions last night: 40 degrees, wet, and windy. Since only two participated (Bryan T was there but chickened out with some excuse), there was no ace fund eligibility, so Jason and I played works for tags. I was Dot-Leader (3.5 to 2.5), last to retain Membership, won 10 of 18 in CTPs and FIBs, AND got 10 of the16 Skins (the last 2 pushed). I retained tag #7 in this sweeping.

This year's Fairgrounds Fling will be a one-day C-tier on May 30, 2015, league members will have access to early signup, and as always will get a shot at the StrongArm CTP in the tournament.
Limited to 80 players this year (4 max per card) we will throw two rounds of 20 holes each.
New bagtags are being ordered today for the 2015-16 season, and there will be a tournament fundraiser / member renewal event soon to get them distributed.
More info will be provided as it becomes available, keep an eye here on DiscGolfScene and/or facebook. Thanks!

Sometimes things go your way, sometimes they don't. Tonight I won first place playing Cali, and got every one of the CTPs (holes 3. 5. and 6). Hit the pole one time, but no Ace; other than that I thought it turned out perfectly. Some people might have a different point of view.
Walt Guttinger February 27 at 10:34pm
We now have the primary ace fund and the reserve ace fund capped at 200 each, and we are starting to build on what could be called the "back-up reserve ace fund".
Walt Guttinger January 31 at 11:07am
Playoff that shoulda ended on hole 1 was extended to 4 holes by Jason's 60' putt. JML had no answer for my over the top, making the mando, spiking in 8 ft from the pin launch on #4. He had the last Laugh(lin) though, getting two CTPs (#6 and #14) & second place Cali for a total payout of $21 vs first place 20 each.. .Shannon got the other $8 CTP (#12). 6 throwers stayed for 2nd round of glow dubz (no bux just fun).
Walt Guttinger January 17 at 10:52am
It was a dark and dewy night.....The stars were on full display, and so was DanBus's turbo putt. He canned everything within 50' it seemed. Cash CTPs went to Walt (21), Cliff (23), and Shannon (25). Cliff got the bonus / merchandise CTP on 11.
Walt Guttinger December 13 at 12:18pm
Lovely conditions for glow round last night. The big lights were shining down on 6 regulars and two new-to-our-group throwers. DanBus got the CTP on 4, and DougLee-S got #7 & #24. One-hole playoff went to NickO & LukeS.
Walt Guttinger November 15 at 11:59pm
Welcomed three this week who've not joined our Friday game until now, and two are new members: Dustin & Ken. No moon for tonight's glow round, but that didn't stop NickO from bagging 2 of the CTPs and half of the first place cash. BenJ got the other CTP, while newcomer from NC NickH and myself played well enough for 2nd place.

Prime conditions for DG on this pre-Cracker Day edition of the SAFE_D Meeting. It was extra special for me to have my brother Greg (the other DoubleG) Guttinger throwing with us. Jason L was the bagger du jour, taking CTPs on holes 3 & 9 plus his half of the winners pay. James W got the CTP on 7, and provided those of us who stayed for a glow singles bag-tag round with a JohnE style comeback to force a playoff. The 'glow round' on this night was unlike many others because we used an 18-hole layout that played mostly under the lights.

Getting used to umbrella Fridays lately. Last night has to be the wettest SAFE_D Meeting I can remember. 7 of us were treated to monsoon-like conditions at times. Good practice for DGers who plan on playing tournaments! Luke proved he was a real mudder after all; winning w partner JasonL, and bagging 2 of the 3 CTPs. DaveG got the other CTP.
Walt Guttinger September 27 at 11:02am
Another damp Friday; this one ended in a three-hole playoff when James parked #3 with a tomahawk for the second time in one session. CTPs went to James(3), Nick (18) and Walt(20).
Walt Guttinger September 20 at 9:47am
Some other facts about the 9/19/14 SAFE-D Meeting that are worthy of note: A) Of the 21 holes played, none went un-birdied. B) Of the 21 holes played, 15 were star frames. C) Not a single bogie on the card. Talk about a tough room!

It was POW/MIA Recognition Day yesterday, and our troop of 6 marched around the squishy course at the fairgrounds. We played holes #1-21 to finish before dark (did the sun set or did one group shoot all the lights out?) JoeC & DaveG birdied all but #6 & #16 and took no prisoners. CTPs went to JoeC #1 & 13, while JamesW claimed #6. With all sincerity though, I have great appreciation for the men & women of our armed forces, especially those who endured being missing or captured.
Walt Guttinger September 6 at 10:32am
Rainy session of Wolf last night, and we had a blast. CTPs went to James (20), Walt (21) & Luke (23), which is reflected in the payout amounts. Score was not applicable since Wolf is a skins game, but I had to enter something in those fields. Next week we will probably have to play one of the 18 hole layouts to finish before dark if any of the doubles cards exceed four throwers.

Friday the 13th with a full moon won't happen again for 30 years or so, someone mentioned. All I know is, it was a great evening for disc golf. There were thunderstorms in most nearby towns, but the weather at the fairgrounds was dry and breezy. It was good to have throwers come from as far as Interlachen, Green Cove Springs & Port Orange yesterday. DanBus got the CTP on 7, we used two throws by Mason to get the CTP on 8, and I CTP'd 12. Mason saved his mulligan for a playoff, bu ... more

Mason saved his mulligan for a playoff, but there wasn't one. Billy & Cliff earned visors. Next week's Ace Fund will be $200* & we'll start the Reserve Ace Fund.

This Friday May 9 is the pre-tournament SAFE-D Meeting; I expect many throwers. Please come park near Tournament Central (aka the Exhibit Hall, which is the long warehouse-looking building). Please do not park by hole 1 as we often do.
Sign up ends at 5:00, then after several announcements we will Tee at 5:30 from the assigned pads, which may be far from Tournament Central . Late players will not be in on the action this week.

To those listening to the forecast last night, the weather sounded not unlike Jake from State Farm; hideous. It actually only rained a few brief times during our round. One of those sweet yet soggy nights where we had a small group and everyone hucked strong. James & Dan played great, each with several notable shots (James' rolling "leaners" on hole 1 for CTP & hole 4, Dan's valet parking on 5 / 6 / 7 come to mind). We were tied at the turn, but I had a V-splitting ... more

We were tied at the turn, but I had a V-splitting park job on 15 CTP and CliffW short-hopped an ace hole on 19 that paid a cool two hundred. It wound up making a great looking card; two "1"s on it helped put Walt/Cliff at 11 under on the back. Final score 59 to 63.
It was freekin' epic and you suckas missed it because you were scared of a little moisture... In my experience, throwers would do well to practice in and get used to the wet conditions if they plan on competing in tournaments in this climate!

Last week there were only two throwers present due to crappy weather (the FridayAceFund is not legit unless 4 players show). Last night though, we had throwers come from Marion, Volusia, Clay, Flagler and Duval counties, also several were first-timers. Playing all 25 holes we went right up into darkness.
I was the bagger evidently, partner DavidG and I won with 19 under & split the third shot CTP on 25. I also got the CTPs on 5 & 11. Every CTP was within inches, good thing I had that 25ft tape measure handy to validate.
