5 players first round, 4 players for glow yesterday. Both rounds were a test of wind skills as there seemed to be a tail-cross-head wind on each hole! DanMcK-R took 2 first round CTPs, and Luke got the other. First round scores are up on the Leaderboard. Glow round winners were DMR and JasonL after a two-hole playoff.

After the usual SAFE-D Meeting, we held extended hours for the foursome ready to throw glow. Seven showed for the first round, where EricB and DanielMcK-R ran away with it. The glow portion of the evening's festivities saw NickO and me vs DanBus and ShawnD. Total ace fund contribution was 13 (Big Thanks to Shawn Duke kicking in his change).

Christmas SAFE-D Meeting tees at 3pm today instead of the usual 4pm at this time of the year. Hardly anyone is working, so why not try to play every hole before dark? NickO will be running it unless I get a Christmas miracle hallpass. As Santa says: Throw Throw Throw.

Luke Stamps ran the show on Nov 13, both literally and figuratively. He did the sign-up, etc plus, he and Daniel McK-R bested the other team's scores. Excellent use of his mulligan off the tee on 9 resulted in an ace and CTP for that hole; the toss worth $110 total. Luke was even cool-handed enough to donate 20 of that back into the ace fund so it does not start at zero this week. NICE! Other CTPs were 2 and 7 (both went to NickO).

Weather yesterday was flawless and bugs were barely noticed. Randomly drawn CTPs went to DanielMR on 4, LukeS on 6, and WaltG on 12. Again this week no team scored a bogey, everyone's mulligan resulted in a saved stroke, and well-matched teams resulted in a tie at the end of regulation. The sudden death playoff went deeper than ever before at a SAFE-D Meeting, not being decided until well after dark on hole 5.

Ace Fund updated and today's scores are up under "Week 129"; Yes, the Friday Doubles scores have been posted weekly on this site for quite a while now... Only four throwers in the fairgrounds slog today. We decided to play only on the N side, making 18 holes by playing a few twice (see "layouts" under the Courses / Fairgrounds tabs on discgolfscene). Heavy rain for weeks now has every puddle on the course at its deepest, and there was little support for the notion that ... more

We played a shortened course last night due to the sixsome and earlier darkness. CTPs last night were randomly drawn, and oddly enough they corresponded to the date- 9 , 11, and 15. I put my drive on hole 9 within 3ft of the pin for that CTP, while Jason bagged the other two CTPs even though he was 50' or further away on each. There was a tie for first at the end of regulation, and we decided to have the playoff on the back part of the course because there were fewer bugs and more light. L ... more

The yellow jackets in the palmettos off hole 12 took out one of our throwers last night; CliffW had to leave & I learned later that he counted 16 stings. Luckily he is not allergic, and none were above the shoulders. I also found a nest (off hole 6, deep over the fence) but only got a few stings on my left leg. I eventually found the disc I went in after, not sure if Cliff retrieved his or not but we wish he could have stuck around for doubles... Just a tiny bit of rain right before dark, b ... more

North side of the course was freshly mowed, but south side is getting shaggy enough now to grab and stop discs when they get low. The bugs were not as bad last night as they have been most of this summer. While it was still hot, the temps have dropped a little. Playing 26 holes with a sixsome this time of year we need to start no later than 5:30 to finish by darkness at 8pm. CTP on hole 6 went to DanBus, and I got the CTPs on holes 11 and 23.

Since Mason cleaned out the Ace Fund, we've missed a couple weeks and had low turnouts on the others, so the FAF is looking kinda sad with it's single digit. It isn't a big mystery why the turnout has been low- the temperature & humidity has been oppressive, and the DPGs are as bad as I can remember them ever being. You have to really love the game to play in these conditions. With the ace fund so low, I'm going to try get more participants by providing an incentive (w ... more

Pretty sweet hucking by MasonF; he split first place, bagged a CTP, and cleaned out the ace fund with a skip-shot left of the tree on 14. I followed with a skipper on the right side of that tree which hit basket but didn't stick. My other two "double dots" tonight each yielded a CTP at least! Shannon got the evening's "tournament roll" bragging rights with a hammer throw on 20 that hit the base of the nearest tree to the pin, and finally came to rest over behind the tree on 15's fairway. "Lucky" is a sweetheart of a good dog who we all hope to see again soon.

Great bunch of throwers at the SAFE-D Meeting! Very nice conditions yesterday- windy at first, then it laid down about a half hour before dark. CTPs went to EricB (8), NickO (13), and LeoA (21). Next week is the pre-tournament version of our Friday random draw doubles and we will tee at 3:30. Camping is available at the fairgrounds; roll out of your tent or RV and be on the course already!

The CTPs at the latest SAFE-D Meeting went to BenJ #7, JamieMc #14, PhilR #21. Nice weather, wish I could have played.

Big night for Eric Bates- Aced hole 9, got the CTP on hole 20, and split first prize with DanBus on their way to setting a new regular layout course record**. NickO and JasonL tied the old regular layout course record* and got second place. JoeyV got the CTP on hole 2, and PhilR's flag near the fence on 24 held on for that clot. We welcomed one new member, RickM, and LeoA renewed.

Absolutely flawless weather for this SAFE-D Meeting. It was a festive group of 8 that moved slowly and laughed a lot. We played this year's tournament layout from the short pads and it was a hoot! Ace runs all around but nobody got one to stick. JasonS got CTPs on 2 and 26, DanBus bagged the clot on 6. BryanT and me took first place with 18 down on 20 holes.

JamesW earned two of the CTPs (# 3 & 18), and CliffW got the other (#5). JamesW & DanielM-R got first place, CliffW and me got 2nd, and the JasonL KevinO team got last cash tonight. Flawless weather and some great shots including JW's near-ace on 21 amd MikeB's putts hitting long...

Twilight Eighteen XVIII layout includes regular holes 1-16, then 17 pad to 18 (lighthouse) pin, then 19 pad to 25 pin. Will probably use this layout tonight if we have a sixsome.

Randomly drawn CTPs in today's game went to me (7), and CliffW (12 & 13). Cliff and new-to-us player Paul C also took the 2nd place payout. PhilR and DanBus went 13 down on the 21 hole layout tonight to split the first place prize. Cliff renewed his StrongArm membership to claim the last tag in stock. RyanC joined and got his shirt, but will have to wait a few days for the #51 tag to get delivered. Jax Open Tomorrow!

Randomly drawn CTPs in today's game went to JasonL (3), JoeyM (14), and ShannonL (20). Jason showed no mercy, bagging the first ace fund in eleven months. It happened to come on a CTP hole, which was nice for him but made the rest of us feel like he wasn't very considerate... Naw seriously it was a pure clean sidearm with a star XCal for 200 cash on hole 3. Nice work Jason. Oh yeah, NickO and JoeyM took first place. Too bad Joey, usually a CTP and half of first place is the goods, but ... more

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.
