Well Nick Richardson & John Vorpagel participated in the 2011 Discraft Ace Race at Raintree Park this afternoon. There was plenty of Ace's to account for but not for John & myself. John finished with 2 Metal hits & I finished with 3 Metal hits. Had a lot of Fun and also received 2 Nice Prototype Discs (Putt/Approach) similar to Challengers, a sticker, mini marker thats pretty freaking sweet and a Bag that holds 6 or 7 disc. One of my Metal hits went in and out. John has video of it and hope to see it soon! Tomorrow morning we will venture to Stoney Creek's "The Buckhorn" DGC for our usual 8 a.m. start! Hopefully we can have a nice group and loads of fun!!!
