Wasn't this a BIG, can't-miss tournament in the 90's or am I confusing it with another Illinois tournament?

I know for a number of players this is a can't miss event, but I don't have enough history to be able to know what tournament you are referring to.

The Sinnissippi Open was the top Illinois tournament of the 80's and 90's. Terry Batten PDGA#1738 started the event in 1979 and ran it for 25 years at least. In 2003, the event's 25th year, awesome tournament discs were made- black Discraft Wasps and black Discraft Challengers with gold lettering saying "Sinnissippi Silver 2003". They also featured a gold basket with "25" on the he top. Rod Fritz also ran the event after Terry. Iowa players always did pretty well at the event in the 80's and 90's.

I lived in that town for three years back in the late 90's and only played about two or three times a year. I had no idea what a gem that course was until I went back a couple of times in recent years for the tournament. Nice course with a great overlook of the river. They do some pretty cool temp holes too.

I played the tournament in 2008, 2009 and 2011. I enjoyed the tournament all three years. They have made the temporary holes permanent. It is a 24 hole course. It is a well run tournament. I would recommend playing the tournament at least once in your life.
You can only be offended if you want to be.
