Anyone familiar with weather patterns in NE Florida this time of year might have predicted what it looked like this evening. Hot and humid at signup, very windy from holes 1-6 (which was nice because it blew away many of the DPGs), and then it rained like crazy when our group played holes 7 and 8. Skies cleared up after that, and was almost even nice, if not for those pesky things coming back after the wind laid down. LukeS claimed randomly-drawn CTPs on holes 10 and 16, while JamesW grabbed th ... more

Hot today, like one coulda figured for mid-June in FL. JamesW got the CTP on 23, LukeSW had a $9 throw on 18, and hole 1 CTP went to me. JamesW & BobMcC bagged lowest score for $20 each, nice throwing fellas.

Randomly drawn CTPs tonight went to LukeS on 21, and BobMcC on 22 (Dan got the bonus CTP pie on hole 5). The CTP on 15 also went to BobMcC but has a more interesting story- I threw first off the tee, split the V, and my disc stopped 8' from the pin. After huge high fives around, my partner Bob says "I might not even throw", then he proceeds to park his 2' away and grab the cash on that one; even though we putted mine to score the fabled v1. Good times. Welcome StrongArm Leag ... more

New guy today- Aaron- swwops down from Jax and hits the ace on hole 7, which just so happened to be the bonus CTP pizza hole. Aaron also scored a cash CTP on hole 19, but did not pull the trigger on the StrongArm membership, so the Friday Ace Fund paid out only 50 for him tonight. Still, 58 bucks and a pie isn't too bad a payout for having fun. Other CTPs went to JamesW on 16 and me on 13. Next week the Fund is at 175 (for current members). Chris Gonzalez joined tonight to become the first Member with a three-digit number; will Aaron be StrongArm League Member #101?

CTP winners at yesterday's SAFE-D Meeting were me (hole #4), LukeS (hole #12), and EricB (hole #15). Good times!

Today we played without hole 13, and a shorter version of hole 26 due to traffic for this weekend's rodeo. CTPs went to JamesW (holes 22 and 24) and DanB (hole 20). BryanT and me won by a stroke after splitting monster putts on 17 and 26, fun round and warming up nicely.

James was less stoked than some, but just as wet.

It's just water. Over 2/3 of the earth is covered by it. Most of that seemed to fall on the fairgrounds tonight. Those fortunate enough to participate gained valuable experience for playing Florida DG tournaments.
Between a late start ("we'll just wait out the worst of it"), a sixsome card, six 10-minute monsoons, and some throwers who just do not play fast, we decided to call it after 24 holes.
TPs went to Jason (24) and Walt (20 and 21). JML & WG also won first place; everyone there was soaked and stoked head to toe.

There is a large event at the fairgrounds this weekend (April 15-17, 2016), and campers will likely be all over both sides of the course. SAFE-D Meeting will return to it's regularly scheduled time next week.

Almost forgot to welcome StrongArm League member #99, Andrea Mitchell. Looking forward to seeing Andrea & more ladies at the fairgrounds DG course. Thanks for your support.

4/8/16 seemed like it would be a great date to play doubles (or visit Ireland's largest city). Well it was for DMR, who did a bunch of Dublin- he doubled his buyin with first place winnings, then doubled up on the CTP action, parking #12 and besting Luke's drive on #15 (DanBus got #18). All this despite coming in late and joining the Bryan who played odd/cali/hans the first couple holes.

Welcomed a new member tonight, ChrisP from Tennessee. It was a cool but nice, and not as windy as everyone might have expected. DanB and ChrisP were each about 6 steps away from hole 7 and hole 14 on their drives; first time at a SAFE-D Meeting that I remember the same players splitting two randomly drawn CTPs. CliffW's roller on 13 took that CTP (and yes he made the putt thru the ticket booth window). ChrisP and partner JimmieB from New Smyrna Beach earned the victory with eleven under on 21 holes. Scores under "Week 152' on the Leaderboard tab.

The random draw CTPs went to Cliff&Luke (team payout third shot on 25), Doug (23), and Luke (15). Dougy Flesh kicked in 2 extra (Legacy & Prodiscus) disc CTPs that went to Dan (12) and Daniel (3). Thanks Doug!
Three-way full darkness playoff went two holes when NickO parked and nobody else could. Dan Bus was in the zone most of the night keeping his team alive, lots of Ss&Gs on our card. Played the rest of the front 12 glow for more Ss&Gs.

5 players first round, 4 players for glow yesterday. Both rounds were a test of wind skills as there seemed to be a tail-cross-head wind on each hole! DanMcK-R took 2 first round CTPs, and Luke got the other. First round scores are up on the Leaderboard. Glow round winners were DMR and JasonL after a two-hole playoff.

After the usual SAFE-D Meeting, we held extended hours for the foursome ready to throw glow. Seven showed for the first round, where EricB and DanielMcK-R ran away with it. The glow portion of the evening's festivities saw NickO and me vs DanBus and ShawnD. Total ace fund contribution was 13 (Big Thanks to Shawn Duke kicking in his change).

Christmas SAFE-D Meeting tees at 3pm today instead of the usual 4pm at this time of the year. Hardly anyone is working, so why not try to play every hole before dark? NickO will be running it unless I get a Christmas miracle hallpass. As Santa says: Throw Throw Throw.

Luke Stamps ran the show on Nov 13, both literally and figuratively. He did the sign-up, etc plus, he and Daniel McK-R bested the other team's scores. Excellent use of his mulligan off the tee on 9 resulted in an ace and CTP for that hole; the toss worth $110 total. Luke was even cool-handed enough to donate 20 of that back into the ace fund so it does not start at zero this week. NICE! Other CTPs were 2 and 7 (both went to NickO).

Weather yesterday was flawless and bugs were barely noticed. Randomly drawn CTPs went to DanielMR on 4, LukeS on 6, and WaltG on 12. Again this week no team scored a bogey, everyone's mulligan resulted in a saved stroke, and well-matched teams resulted in a tie at the end of regulation. The sudden death playoff went deeper than ever before at a SAFE-D Meeting, not being decided until well after dark on hole 5.

Ace Fund updated and today's scores are up under "Week 129"; Yes, the Friday Doubles scores have been posted weekly on this site for quite a while now... Only four throwers in the fairgrounds slog today. We decided to play only on the N side, making 18 holes by playing a few twice (see "layouts" under the Courses / Fairgrounds tabs on discgolfscene). Heavy rain for weeks now has every puddle on the course at its deepest, and there was little support for the notion that ... more

We played a shortened course last night due to the sixsome and earlier darkness. CTPs last night were randomly drawn, and oddly enough they corresponded to the date- 9 , 11, and 15. I put my drive on hole 9 within 3ft of the pin for that CTP, while Jason bagged the other two CTPs even though he was 50' or further away on each. There was a tie for first at the end of regulation, and we decided to have the playoff on the back part of the course because there were fewer bugs and more light. L ... more
