We will be trying to start at 4:45 this week since daylight is short lived now. We will also be doing doubles for the rest of the year as you know.
Hopefully if we move quick we wont have any issues. See you there!
Mike Murphy September 16, 2009 at 11:49am
We will be starting at 5:00 sharp this week. Light is getting scarce and we need get going earlier.
There will be no exceptions. You must be in the lot at 5 if you wanna play. No stragglers.
Mike Murphy September 2, 2009 at 10:35am
We will be starting at 5:15 this week to beat the darkness.
If we keep to 3-somes we should have no issues. Weather looks gorgeous too! See you there!

No one hit an ace so we played "mini boccie" for the ace pot. There was a line set up and everyone had one chance to throw a mini closet to a pile of discs. KAZ took it down by being about 2 ft. away and won himself $20.
Hole 3-- Alex Langer's Flying Lures won by Chuck Ratcliff
Hole 10 2nd shot --- Long Trail shirt won by Jeff Chauvin
Hole 16 --- two disc golf hats won by Jeff Chauvin
Hole 1 --- an Epic won by Jeff Chauvin (then immediately donated to WTL)
Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves and we helped raise money for the course. We should be able to get a lot of new pads and tee signs with this money.
Thanks to to our helpers/sponsors:
Steve Dakai/Choice Pools
everyone that helped pick up trash, plays in league, bought a tag, and continues to help West Thompson grow and become a better and better course!!
I set another one of these tourneys up for the spring time, hopefully after we get our tees all finished.
Thanks again everyone!
Mike Murphy August 27, 2009 at 10:29am
Reminder to everyone that we're playing random doubles tonight.
Weather looks to be beautiful out there, so lets capitalize and get as many people as we can.
I'll be there a little early to try to do some work on the boxes.
Mike Murphy August 24, 2009 at 10:00am
Doubles and trash
This upcoming week we will be doing DOUBLES, random draw.
I'm gonna have some trash bags for each group to bring around as well. There is a fair amount of trash to be picked up and I'd like it done before the tag tourney.
I'm gonna try to get there early to walk the course with some clippers and a steel rake to fix up the course a bit as well. Any and all help is appreciated.

West Thompson Trooper Award
At the end of the season I'm giving away a few awards for this league. Most importantly, IMO, is the West Thompson Trooper Award, which will be given to the person who has contributed the most to WT and disc golf this year.
If you play in the league you can vote. PM me here or on Nefa and I'll tally it. The person you feel has done the most.
Here are a few names I think should be considered:
Voting will go til mid September.
Thanks to all in advance for helping re-ignite the awesome course that is West Thompson.
Mike Murphy August 7, 2009 at 10:13am
9 person league on one of the better days of the summer so far.
Jeff Emilyta takes it down again with a hot round and runs away with points.
AJ makes a triumphant return to WT and gets 2nd.
Cheef gets 3rd.
CTP Lightning disc from Choice Pools goes to Ray for coming out all shot up with cortisone.
Mike Murphy August 6, 2009 at 10:37am
I finally posted the round from two weeks ago, which has now launched Jeff E. into first on the leaderboard.
Last week was doubles and does not count toward point or handicaps.
Today will be handi singles again per the norm. I wanna see lots of tags show up!! We have a tourney at the end of the month, lets mix it up a bit before then!

Dogs and leashes
Effective immediately there is a mandatory leash law at this league.
I apologize to whoever this may inconvenience but we've had far to many incidents already this year with dog fights and complaints of dogs being big distractions.
I know you all understand.
Mike Murphy July 17, 2009 at 10:11am
16 players on a nice day making for our biggest league yet! Paul takes it down with a 51 before cap, which gives him the hot round and a personal best. Good job! Dewey lost the 7 hole playoff against Paul and takes 2nd. Jeff E takes down third, Donny with fourth, and Greg beats Cheef in a playoff for fifth.

We have 1 more spot that we will have another tryout for in a few more weeks. Stay tuned.
Mike Murphy July 15, 2009 at 10:39am
Tomorrow night at league Team West Thompson will be having a small meeting discussing who our 3 spots will go to.
If you are interested in playing on the team this year, please try to make an appearance and let me and Steve know.
We may or may not be holding tryouts right then and there, but at the least we need to know how many people are interested.
There is also 1 extra spot available for a lady. Girls, you know you want in on this debauchery!
Mike Murphy July 13, 2009 at 2:11pm
12 person league on a gorgeous day.
Long story short,
Timmy Walsh shatters the course and throws a 45 straight up!!! We do believe that is a new course record.
Big congrats to Timmy.
Nothing else matters.
He won if you didn't figure it out yet.

BTW, who's gonna stop me from holding the lead in points? I bet it won't be you.
Mike Murphy May 28, 2009 at 7:35am
Looks like it'll be a little damp and cool today. Bring your pants and long sleeves if you want.
I have a limited number of tags to sell. I know a bunch more people were looking for them.
Mike Murphy May 22, 2009 at 11:47am

Mike Murphy April 3, 2009 at 2:59pm
I just fixed the points to make it fair.
I realized the system I had was not fair after Bear took 2nd after one week.
Ten points to the winner, 9 to second, 8 to third, and so on. Only top ten get points.
5 bonus points for hot round.
Scores should now reflect that.

Mike Murphy March 25, 2009 at 5:39pm
We're starting at 4:45 this week. Play in 3'somes.
Lets make this a bigger showing and put up some good scores!!
I've also set up a points leaderboard for the league too. I'll make some sort of trophy or prize for the person with the most points at the end of the season.
