Just a question Brandon. The property owner is ok with you going into the ponds correct?


Brandon Redmond    November 8, 2012 at 2:55am

Heading out to the course tomorrow, Thursday, about 1-130. Will be diving for dics. Wouldn't mind 1 or 2 guyus coming to help out. If you are, let me know, and def bring extra towels, maybe some food and drink, or be prepared to go in the water as well. I don't mind doing the work, but a rotation could keep ppl warm and not lose time. Either way, let me know here or text me. # on profile.

To whoever made off with my CE TL. Id like to thank you AND you douchebag partner for finding a disc DURING a tourney and NOT turning it in but just keeping it. Thank you! May the disc golf karma gods shine down on both of you dickheads!

If anyone sees it, Its a 1999 swirl ty dyed green red yellow purple CE TL. Big reward.

I really should spellcheck before I post :)

Having been on the TD side of running out of food it sucks however it is really really hard to estimate food. With finite budgets and wanting to not have way too much food it is one of the more difficult things to try to juggle at a disc golf event.

@JB - you are so correct. Frost last year was an issue but it wasn't this year. The unexpected format change was strictly a daylight issue. During the 1st round our group was standing on the 10th tee when the 1st Saturday of the month 1:00 pm horn went off. That was 2 1/2 hours for 10 holes. I knew then if the rest of the day played out like the 1st 10 holes the 2nd round would have ended around 8 or 8:30, hence the format change. I know it wasn't cool but we all finished the half 2nd ... more

I had a great time as always at MCCG events, thanks to everyone who helps make it happen....suggestions, Next year maybe just plan the event for a round and a half instead of disappointing players that could have had a chance to come back if the second round was played out or stick with planning the event for 2 rounds but tee off at usual times, frost permitting, but If the weather doesnt allow it in the morning then make the announcement at the meeting before tee off that we will be playing a s ... more

I lost a disc has been in my bag since 1999. Its a tie tyed CE TL. It was prolly someone who played the back 9 in the 2nd round who found it, didnt turn it in and just kept it. If anyone sees it or has it, you can turn it into the pro shop a Sunnybrook or let me know who has it. Maybe they just forgot to turn it in. Big Big reward!

Thanks for posting and for running a smooth event to your TD, Chris Leo.
The staff of Ryan Bauer, Ken Mango, Mat Stivers, Aaron Nitz, Jeff Bauman, Brent Sickel, Doug Watson, and everyone else who helped make the day run smooth. So many people pitched in to help that it was very inspiring.
I know the maps were pretty good but the course still lacks direc ... more

So we raised $474 for the Detroit Capuchin Soup Kitchen. $88 from the entry $81 from the 50/50 CTP, and a huge shout-out to Josh Chef Schulte who attended even though he couldn't play to run the raffle which took in an additional $305.
Our 2012 total so far is (insert drum roll here) - $2995. Awesome!
Congratulations to Ryan Koeppen who won the Turkey for the Open CTP.
Congratulations to Ryan ChimChim Bauer who won the Jimmy Howard disc.
And oh yea, thanks to Ken Mango who pulled the winning ticket, I won the other Turkey!

Ok, so i've been approached by a few guys already about going fishing. I had no intention of going until next spring, maybe April. But it has come to my attention that we will be having upwards of 60 degree days this coming week, and maybe, just maybe, I'm feeling a little crazy. So, here's the deal. If I do decide to go fishing, it'll prolly be around wed or thurs, maybe fi. I will post on here that I am going, as well as on my profile. If you know your disc didn't have ... more

Huge thanks to everyone who was involved with installing the course and all the work that went into this course. It was an absolute RIOT out there yesterday. Props to Chris for running another smooth tourny!

Also I lost a White/Pinkish destroyer over the fence by the dealership. Has my name on the bottom if anyone comes across it I would like it back! Thanks!


Jeff Bauman    November 5, 2012 at 4:05am

Left a tie dyed t bird just sitting in the grass on the left side of #18 basket on the last shot of the 1st round. Threw it on a mulligan and forgot it. Reward!


brent moreno "WPD"    November 4, 2012 at 11:47pm

Might b a long shot but did anyone finds sum money out on the course yesterday?


Jason "raffle Bagger" Phillips    November 4, 2012 at 9:50pm

Thanks to all that made the turky open possible. The course was awsome but a little tuff to navigate.. the pin layouts where frickin awsome also. Great time and looking foreword to next year. Will I be able to see all the final scores on here? New to all this.


doug granby    November 4, 2012 at 9:03pm

such an awesome time yesterday. defiantly doing it again next year. the only thing that disappointed me or i guess let me down was the misunderstanding for the payouts. we place second among 4 teams. i understand that's not a lot of teams but in my opinion 96$ for first and nothing second is kinda shady. don't get me wrong the team who took first kicked ass and deserved to win. But i just find it a little unfair that everyone paid at least 60$ (we spent 82) and should have the same cha ... more

Dj is correct, 64/34
