Tournament Season Ends With Grand Prix Action!

First, I must thank our sponsors, without whom we would not have had those sweet player packs for everyone! To the innovators and pillars of our sport, Mark Roberts, Larry LaBond, and Joe Gill, we definitely could not have done this without you guys, your contributions are very much appreciated and I hope we can work together in the future. We were also generously sponsored by Innova Champion Discs, Millenium Golf Discs, and Gateway Disc Sports.

I would like to give special thanks to each and every one of the 11 players that came out in the driving rain, waited out the lightning, and fought with a tenacity only found in the most dedicated of disc golf players. Without you guys, Spinlab would be an afterthought. Well, after some stiff competition, we have a Grand Prix Champion in Wade Sullivan, with Steve Blink coming in at a hard fought second, and Rob Draves in a valiant fight taking up the third place spot. I hope all of our players from yesterday are in good health and have recovered well from the rain and cold, though I'm sure most of you guys are used to Michigan disc golf weather. Once I figure out the best way to post achievements for the match play format, they will go up, it shouldn't be more than a couple of days.

This event concludes the 2012 Spinlab tournament season, it would not have been such a successful year if it weren't for the tenacity of our players, the generosity of our sponsors, and the support of the local disc golf community. I will be making regular trips to Knollwood for the rest of the park season and have plenty of discs left for sale. Metal Flake Katanas and Mambas, Glow CFR Sidewinders and Archons, CFR Teedevils, Blizzard Wraiths, and Star Ontario Rocs are all 15 bucks, while R Pro Rocs are 12, KC Pro Glow Aviars and R Pro Aviars are 10. We also have a good selection of Gateway Putters including the new superglow Magic and Voodoo for $12 that can glow for up to 1 hours on a single charge, and several Wizards of different types for $10.
