Discin In The Dark is over until 2013

It may be over for this season but look forward to a bigger and better season in 2013. Remember this is the first league I have ever run completely. I want to thank Scott Slauson for his help over the season and his offering of letting us use the solar powered lights for the finale', Greg Weber for his $5 donation for extra lighting for the finale' which will also help pay for some of those solar lights from Scott Slauson to be used for future glow leagues and events. I also want to th ... more

Discin' In The Dark Finale

Well the time has come to wrap up the first league I have ever run on my own. I want to thank everyone who attended and especially those loyal attendees this fall, I really appreciate it, because if turnout was low week after week I would have wondered what I was doing wrong. I expect low turnout from time to time because of location, weather, etc, but I sure hope that none of my rules, payout, or any other factor has kept anyone from coming back to my league. I want as many people to come as po ... more

Miniwaukan Recap and a Preview to the finale at Valley View.

This week we saw only our second Ace in Discin' In The Dark by Dustin Skorupinski hitting #13 for $59 cash . . . Dustin is WINNING!

In the Open Division we saw Scott Slauson win again this week with a hot (-14). He also holds a 2.5 point lead (after the 4 weeks are dropped) going into the final week over Joel Kamoske (-9 for 2nd this week). . . assuming both Joel and Scott come to Valley View. This division could be determined by how many people play in Open next week. Want to play the s ... more

Let's Give Thanks For Disc Golf!

In the Open Division last week we saw Scott Slauson extend his lead over Joel Kamoske, but we also saw Marshall Black play some of his best Discin In The Dark Disc golf this week to take the weekly win. If we get a decent pro turnout on the last two weeks I expect just about any of those three gentlemen could win the division.

In the Intermediate Division Dustin Skorupinski and I remained tied overall because of the dropped rounds taking effect but Bob Bawden showed us what kind of Discin In ... more

Here is your chance to own the Lace before it is released . . . and the best part . . . it is free! This contest will be held immediately following the round, so be sure to come to league this week. Each person will get one throw with the disc. I will give you a description of it's flight beforehand but there will be no practice throws. ONE AND DONE!

This Week Dretzka Original 18 6:30 shotgun start

This week we look to challenge the original 18 holes at Dretzka . . . I will be there early to setup the glow sticks and hopefully we will have nice weather and I can setup all my discs and merchandise in the back of my truck for people to peruse what I have available. I would like everyone to check in before 6:20 so that we can get right out on the course by 6:30.

Last week we had a light turnout with 10 players, but we had one dedicated first time player Patrick who took an hour long bus r ... more

Start Time now set at 6:30 PM. Dretzka Alt. 9 this week

I have moved up the start time to 6:30 PM for the rest of the league, because of daylight savings time ending and the fact that almost everyone should be able to make it by 6:30. If you have a conflict please let me know in advance and we might be able to work something out. We have two weeks at Dretzka, then Miniwaukan in Mukwonago, and finally we will wrap up at Valley View on November 27th.

This week we have the Alternate 9 at Dretzka and I will be playing a round beforehand to layout some ... more

Estabrook Week 8 Tee off between 6:30-7:00

First I will wrap up last week and then get to notes about this week. I was disappointed we didn't have a better turnout this past week because it was Brown Deer and because it was just an eerie night. I wish I could have seen a lot more scores just for comparison. The new pin positions definitely add some challenge to an already tough course. I thought the conditions were almost as hard as the night we played at Miniwaukan, just in a different way. It was moderately cold, foggy, we could ... more

Acetime Baby Woot . . .

If Matt or JP do not show up to Valley View tomorrow night for Discin In The Dark . . .they are crazy because anytime an ace pool hits approximately $90 at Valley View . . . someone is just about guaranteed to go home with some CASH!!!!! $72 plus whoever signs up tomorrow night . . . I would expect the ace pool to be at least $90 cash tomorrow. Invite your friends and split the ace pool between your group . . . I don't care what you do . . . someone has to take home some cash tomorrow . . . it might as well be you!

Miniwaukan Blues

We had a small turnout despite the wonderful conditions last Tuesday. It was about 45-50 degree, the wind was blowing about 20-30 MPH and the rain took like 3 hours to get from Madison to Mukwonago . . . and it began to rain just as we had our player meeting. We had 11 brave souls show up . . . and everyone ended up playing . . . perhaps the peer pressure of seeing everyone else who came still play. I know for me, I will play in just about anything . . . because I just love throwing the discs ar ... more

Dretzka Original 18

While we didn't set a new record for league attendees, we still had a respctabl 20 people. Unfootunately, some of te guys from Dretzka leagues ended up playing Random Draw Doubles, and a few others I expected to be at league were not able to make it.

Again, there was no ace hit so the total is up to $65 now. If you have paid into the ace pool you have a vested interest in continuing to come to league so don't let the drive to Mukwonago next week keep you from coming to get yourself ... more

Dretzka Original 18

I scouted the course today and I know all of the pin positions. Even though the pin is short on #10, we will be throwing from the concrete tee on #11. I do not want someone hurting themselves on the rocky and gravelly tee up on the hill so we will be throwing from the concrete tee for consistency.

I am excited to see how many people we draw this week with Dretzka regular leagues being over. I expect record attendance for the 4th week in a row. I am excited with the attendance we have had, be ... more

Dretzka Alternate 9 with 9 holes of alternate tees

I figured I would change things up since this would be the only 9 holes course we play for Discin In The Dark. I found some spots that I thought made really good holes. Every hole was shortened at least 10' and some up to about 50' shorter. I promise you I did not set the course up necessarily to my throwing strengths. What I did was pick a spot, put the flags in the ground, and then throw a practice shot or two to test out the lines . . . I didn't once adjust the tee area after t ... more

Estabrook Week 2

We had a wonderful turnout for Week 2 of Discin In The Dark. I'd love to see those numbers keep improving and with Dretzka only having one more week, I imagine we might see really good numbers on October 2nd at Dretzka Park for the original 18 holes.

First let me thank Greg Klein, Bob Bawden, and any of the other regular helpers at Estabrook Park for the additional pin positions and all of the woodchips that got spread this summer. I really like the basket location on #4, it is unique an ... more

Estabrook Week 2

In just about 12 hours we will be hitting Estabrook Park with our LED lights and glow sticks. Let's all get out there and have some fun! I am looking forward to another awesome glow round and hopefully a pleasant evening of weather.

Brown Deer in the Dark!

Brown Deer is a beast during the day . . . but it is a whole other species at night. I literally hit stuff 3' in front of my a couple of times because I could not see it. Live and learn I guess. A flashlight would have been helpful in that instance. I tried using my light up pen on occassion but it didn't always allow me to see everything.

In Open, Scott Slauson won the first ever Open Discin' In The Dark league round with a 58 (+4). . . something that will forever be a feather ... more
