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, but there wasn't ... more

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 park job on 15 CTP and Clif ... more

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.

Sorry I missed this one, sounds like a really fun round was had playing only on the South side of the course. Who says random-draw doubles never results in fair pairings? A three-way tie was decided in sudden death format as usual. Mason & Jonathan won it on the 4th hole of this playoff, congrats!

SAFE-D Primary Friday Ace Fund (PFAF) now capped at $200.

If there are multiple aces in the same round, each gets a split of the primary ace fund. When nobody gets an ace, the fund rolls over to the next Friday game.

By member vote, the Reserve Friday Ace Fund (RFAF) has been established and is at $86 as of this writing. RFAF will only be on the table in the week following a SAFE-D meeting Ace or Aces.

Current StrongArm League members get the full Ace Fund payout; players who are not current members get half of any FAF win up to $50 (maximum non-member Ace payout is $50).

Starting at 5:30 and playing one of the 18-hole layouts seems just right for finishing before dark this week because we had all foursomes. Both paid teams got birdies on 2, 5>6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 14, 19, 20, 21. DanBus & MaxJ won 1st place with these birdies plus #s 3,11, and 16; WaltG & JasonL took 2nd with additional birds on 15 and 18. Max got the CTPs on 13 and 16, Walt got CTP on 17 tonight. BillyM and newcomer WillS earned visors tonight with a total score of 55. Last week we had a group of ... more

Soggy play yesterday evening, and the sixsome went right up to darkness. Time change soon & it will be a welcome thing so we can begin at a time that more people can attend....Welcome to the newest member of the StrongArm League, Roger Spidle (#43). Roger lives in PC and is fairly new to disc golf, but his enthusiasm for the game is evident!

I think it is prudent that we have two weekly SAFE-D Meetings starting 11/15/2013. With the days getting shorter, the upcoming holiday season, and schools in session, we would be well-served to exhibit twice the awareness & general precaution. So, next week we start at 4pm, then do another round starting after dark, around 6:15 most likely. This way, the players who don't enjoy playing at night are included, as well as those who have to work later on Fridays and can't make it by 5pm. I think ... more

Nov 8 SAFE-D Meeting played on south side of course due to rodeo on north side. CTPs #10 and #12 went to Walt, while Mason got #11. Billy & Frank earned visors, but Frank left too early to claim his. Newcomer to this league Tony also left early, leaving Ben to clean up 3rd place by himself. Four of us stuck around to play another glow doubles round on the north side (skipping #13 and avoiding close calls with the parking ladies this year). Turns out hole 13 was the only one on the north side th ... more

Oct 18 SAFE-D Meeting CTPs went to Max (1), Jim L (3), and Billy M (6). Sudden death playoffs under a huge orange moon for first place and last cash; last night was the first time I remember having a playoff for each spot...

Next week we'll play the back 13 all the way through once, then 14 and "The Nest" (18-21) again to make 18 holes total. Each player will get two chances at CTPs on 14 & 18, but only one shot at 23.

Oct 11 SAFE-D Meeting CTPs went to Billy M (5), Walt G (13), and Ben J (21). Cliff W & Jim Lewis shot lights out to claim the largest chunk of cash. Their play on holes 15, 16, 17 turned out to be the deciding factor; they came out of "The Stretch" 2 under. All five groups were proficient on "The Nest" section, finding 4 birdies each on holes 18-21.

Next week we play the front 12 all the way through once, then either 1-6, 7-12, evens, or odds on the front again to make 18 holes total.

Last night was one of the few that I can remember when second place had a playoff. James had to play Cali on the playoff b/c his partner Ben had to leave. Sudden death play pushed the match well into darkness, going up to hole 4 where Chris & Glen sunk the putt when James could not... CTP on 7 went to Jeff R, Walt got the others (holes 2 & 22). Start AT 5-sharp next week!!!!!!

Next week we start AT 5pm, please notify if running late and accommodations can be made, but you must call or text WG if you're running late!!!! This week someone said they saw a mosquito near hole 8, but nobody believed it. Seriously tho, this week the CTPs paid eleven bux each: hole 5 went to JML(beat me by mere inches, dammit!), hole 16 went to Damon (who crushed everyone by a good margin with an absolute bomb), and hole 23 went to "Cali" Dan Bus (beat me by about a foot, dangit!). CTPs ar ... more

Sometimes a guy just gets in the zone. Adam R & Dan Bus started on hole 1 and had a lackluster 3 under on the front, but somebody threw the switch at the turn, and they shot 12 down on the back thirteen holes. Adam got 2 of the 3 CTPs last night & bagged an ace on hole 21! These guys also won the sudden death playoff which went all the way to hole 4 for only the second time. Welcome to the newest member of the StrongArm League, #37;shooting like he has been, I expect Adam will have a lower nu ... more

It was a soggy-foot Friday Dubs tonight. Rained off and on, but not too heavy and no ground lightning. Good spirited group of players on this night- all had a blast.

Tonight was the longest playoff to date; Places 1 & 2 went through three playoff holes tied (thanks to Chris A saving his Mulligan for the playoff), but an errant first shot for the Red Kings, and an over the top park job for the Red Eights on hole 4 proved to be the decider. Adam R parked 17 for the birdie, then hit chains on 18 on his next throw; watch this guy.....

Nobody has stepped forward to run doubles this Friday, and it will probably be rainy anyway, so I cancelled it for this week. Anyone who shows up can start a game amongst themselves, but there won't be an ace fund, etc. until next week. Cheers!
