14 slightly crazy people made it out this week to league to take on the course and the ankle to knee deep, disc-devouring snow.

Only 2 cash spots with 7 teams this time, coming in first place with a -10 Andy/Joel, following close behind in second at -8 Glover/Randy.

Andy Branham with the big ACE on Hole 14, taking home $254!! Nicely done Andy!

$40 remains in the Ace Pool.

17 people showed up for league on this 2021 Superbowl Sunday in the bitter cold and wind. Many people lost discs under the snow, leave comments on this post describing your lost discs and hopefully we can bring them home when the snow begins to melt.

Joel/Freeland shot a -10 and took home first place this week followed by Caseyx2 shooting a -7 and finishing second. Two teams tied for last cash and third place and Randy/Curtis won the throw off.

Park Passes

This week at league the DNR began riding around the parking lot and writing tickets for vehicles without passes. I encourage everyone to stop at the booth and look for self registration forms if no workers are present. If someone is in the booth they can sell a yearly pass for $17 as shown below:

"Vehicles: $17 when purchased at state parks, *DNR customer service centers (cash or checks only) or at the Secretary of State outside your license plate registration renewal cycle. (Recreatio ... more

22 players joined us this week for Sunday dubs at Portage, it was a bit brisk out there but the trees weren't raining slush bombs on us this time around so that's an improvement.

2 teams tied with the hot round of -9. Erika/Joel won the throw off against Randy/Bryce to take first place and second place, respectively. Bo/Elijah were right behind with -8 taking third place. Freeland/Glover took fourth place with a -7 and the last cash spot.
