Great day guys!!! Thanks to everyone for all the good vibes all day!!!

Smooth event yesterday. Closed course makes all the difference. Thank you John, Dan, Chris, The Stiversisis, Marty, Mango and MCCG!

Awesome time yesterday thank you. You guys did a great job. And I really appreciated that the restraint you had about not pushing up the player cap even with all the persuasion you were getting the flow was not at all bad for the 120 person field. Maybe now those people will realize the extra 2$ is worth it. specially since half that is for this website. MCCG have the best tournaments keep it up


Ken Mango    May 20, 2013 at 10:33am

I would like to thank Chris and John for all that they do for us. This was the first time that i sat out a tournament and helped you guys all day. It was a long day!(6am til 10pm). Being there all day to help out really made me realize how much you guys do for us on a regular basis.

Thank you so much for all of your hard work not only on the day of the touneys but the days and weeks leading up to them as well.

Thank You
Thank You
Thank You!!!

Wow!!! There were 34 spots available for day of registration and that sold out in 15 minutes, leaving just as many on the wait list. Hopefully this tournament will make you pay ahead of time and not have to be turned away. The last two events the Gale Vaughn and Motor City Open are absolute must play tournaments that you don't want to miss, with the GVM being played at River Bends again this year. Thanks again to Ken Mango, Rob and Matt Stivers, and Andrew Hughes for helping setup the ba ... more

thank you again Chris.

Paul DISC-OR-DIE Holstein   May 21, 2013 at 8:57am

Thanks Chris. My PDGA # is 40923, it doesn't look like my scores are tied to my number. Also, my scores are showing up correct at -8 on the tournament page, but differently on my profile page.

Chris Leo   May 21, 2013 at 9:24am

I believe everything to be correct now with the MAM and MPO divisions. Again I apologize about the error, I also added a couple others so it will link with their profile. If anyone else notices something wrong please let me know.

Dustin Hart    May 19, 2013 at 9:44pm

David Aron    May 17, 2013 at 2:03pm

John Minicuci   May 17, 2013 at 9:53pm

We will probably have less than 40 spots available come Sunday knowing I will be meeting a couple of people tomorrow. If you wait until the morning of, I would advise getting there early, very early...

Robert Shaffer   May 18, 2013 at 7:59am

Ted Stoebling    May 17, 2013 at 1:31pm

There wasn't an option for int women so Lydia signed up for rec, not sure how Abbie did it but place her in with the int women, no need to make another division

Chris Leo   May 17, 2013 at 2:31pm

Fixed, thanks Ted.

Ted Stoebling   May 17, 2013 at 6:30pm

Alex Sunderlik    May 17, 2013 at 3:02am

brent moreno "WPD"   May 17, 2013 at 3:32am

Alex Sunderlik   May 17, 2013 at 6:26am

Cool.Thanx. that's all I was wondering.

John Minicuci   May 17, 2013 at 9:54pm

2 rounds for sure.

John Minicuci    May 16, 2013 at 1:17am

The Course is looking great for this Sunday's tournament. Marty Borucki has been doing a great job. Doug Watson will be at FF on Thursday during the day to begin moving Mulch around the course. We could definitely use assistance. Rakes, shovels, brooms, a pick-up, a tarp are tools of choice. If anyone goes out there to assist, please look for Doug around the bridge near fairway 18 (by the volleyball courts). Thank you...

Douglas Fresh   May 16, 2013 at 6:23am

I work until 4PM weekdays so I won't be up there until after that. It will probably be after 5ish that I will be up there. If anybody has a pickup that is willing to help please shoot me a message or get at my cell (248)342-9917. Otherwise I will be putting seats down and tarping the back of my Cherokee to load up with chips.

Abbie Stoecker   May 16, 2013 at 12:14pm

The course looks amazing, many thanks!!!

Chris Leo    May 15, 2013 at 8:47pm

when being a Dick about spelling, it is important to have your spelling correct. It is spelled 'aqueduct'.

Is that a yes or a no on the metal flake Gators? If yes, my friend Alexander Hamilton would love to have one set aside...

John Minicuci   May 15, 2013 at 10:58pm

We received the 4 discs mentioned above so that is a no on the MF Gators...
