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

With the ace fund so low, I'm going to try get more participants by providing an incentive (while clearing out some tournament leftovers and new League goodies yet to be disclosed): Look for added prizes coming soon to a SAFE-D Meeting near you.

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.
Walt Guttinger April 24 at 10:35pm
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.
Walt Guttinger April 17 at 9:27pm
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

Too bad Joey, usually a CTP and half of first place is the goods, but JasonL stole the spotlight on this one. Perfect weather with this weekend's big dog show getting started around the arena & on the N side.

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.
