Chain Shot

$5.00 from every Chain Shot registration will be designated to the IBH Reach Project,an after-care program of the
IBH Addiction Recovery Center located on S. Main St. in the Portage Lakes. This is to help fight the opioid addiction epidemic in our area. Too many people are overdosing on heroin and fentanyl. You also have the option during your online registration process to donate a little extra to this cause. This is not mandatory. Thank You!

Nice work Steve!

Matt Dungan   July 20, 2015 at 5:54pm

Anyone who's played hole 9 at portage can appreciate this. The second shot is what gets me, there's usually nothing from there (the put was pretty good too!) I was in the group ahead putting out and we were kinda pissed because we thought they were throwing on us. All is forgiven after seeing this

Jeff Gayhart   July 20, 2015 at 7:05pm

That is just amazing especially in the alternate pin. Your lucky to see a 4 here and there in the other postion. That second shot and putt were unreal. Deff cant be pissed after seeing that plus that position is very hard to see anything.

Downtown Akron DG tourney

I just received an email from the "Director Off-Campus Student Services" at the University of Akron. Akron is closing off 2.8 miles of Main street on May 17 from 10:00-4:00 for an event called Open Streets. They want to know if a disc golf group could set up some portable baskets for an urban disc golf course for the day. If we could run a small tournament along with that, it would be fun. Be great to video it for Youtube. Definitely unique. I am sure they would want us to help others ... more

They created this Student Department because of me, it's kind of funny. Since this is my old stomping grounds, I'd love to help - just let me know what I can do to help.

$100 Total - $50 for PDGA fees and $50 for insurance. I think you'll need to change the format a little bit, with PDGA approved divisions and possibly pushing it to two rounds. You would also need to payout amateurs with merchandise instead of cash. It's a lot more work, but just seeing ho ... more

Steve Godar   March 9, 2015 at 7:28am

how much would it cost for people to enter the tournament?

Jon DeCapua   March 9, 2015 at 8:49am

I think it's up to the Tourney Director. Typically, the cost is based on if there is a "player pack" for AM's, what tier (C,B,A) and the amount of added cash.
