Postby acesandchains » Sun Feb 09, 2014 1:36 pm

First Flight Players Party!

The First Flight Players Party will be held at Traditions Restaurant and Pub on Saturday, March 29th from 6pm-8pm. Your welcome to bring friends, family, or significant others. Every player attending will get one free raffle ticket toward prizes we will give away at the party. One of the nicer prizes we are giving away is an overnight getaway donated by the Hollywood Casino and Hotel. Good for a one night stay at the hotel, and a free dinner at one of their three restaurants. That's an approx. value of $180!

Traditions has great food. So, come on out, talk disc golf with your fellow players, and have a great time.

Just a reminder - Register by Feb. 14th to get the long sleeve dry fit t-shirt as part of your players pack. If you register after that, you'll still get a sweet players pack, but you won't get the t-shirt.

Please remember that you MUST be a current PDGA member by tournament time, or you will not be allowed to play. If the PDGA doesn't show you as current, please bring proof of your membership renewal. If you are renewing any later than today, I would recommend keeping the email, or whatever proof you have so there will be no questions.

We have 25 spots remaining between the Rec, Nov, Woman's, and Jr. Divisions.

We have 38 spots remaining between the Adv, and Int divisions.

I don't think I've mentioned yet that the DG Guy, Terry Miller will be at the tournament videotaping for his blog. Very excited to have him there and to meet him in person!

LSDiscs will be running a doubles tournament at Channahon on Friday, March 28th....more details when I get them.


Also, we have two more new hole sponsors!

Hotel is booked! If anyone from Iowa is coming over for this let me know.

Looking forward to playing Round Barn. What's up with the stacked baskets on hole 9?

Hole 9 is actually pretty cool. All the local players like to try to ace the hole, but the guardian trees make it very difficult. Placement around the basket is key to getting your birdie. Put your drive in the wrong spot, and the trees make it very difficult to get your two. It's not unusual during casual rounds to have a group all empty their bags trying to put one in.

Sooo if your playing to silver baskets and you put one in the red basket, do you mark it and drop in in the silver basket?

Chicagoland never seems to amaze me with their janky disc golf... :roll:

That is correct.

Yeah, it's different. To each his own I guess. I like it. It's a better way of raising a basket than putting it on an ugly pole imo.

LSDiscs will be running a doubles tournament at Channahon between 10am-2pm on Friday, March 28th. Great way to prep for the First Flight tournament that weekend. All payouts will be in Merch.

Only $20 a team to play! Advanced and Intermediate divisions available.

LSDiscs will also be at the flymart Friday night, and vending at the tournament at Channahon all weekend. I encourage you to support them!
