Anybody else miss the madrid labor day tourney?
It's not the best course(full of OBS) limited payout, but ELDC had class.
Its a course where you could just as easy get a 1 or a circle 6.
Speaking of class, the list of disc-tinguished players is long, with the steiners,johnsons,valencias,hombergs,spragues,harpers, moses, krugers, coles, fitzgeralds, innis, steffens, sebrings and the ottumwa boys being part of a distinguished alumni.
please post if you also played in one or all of these classics
:roll: :)

It still seems odd that I'm not going to Madrid Labor Day weekend. I'll be in Ames Saturday, I may have to stop by just to pay tribute.

Out of all those years playing Madrid, I've never shot what I would consider a "perfect round" of -12. I think the tournament record stood at -10.

I have the 2009 "The End" disc hanging in my office.

I only missed one ELDC in over 20+ years (damn truck battery). Mr. Adams, as he was called by his present and former students hosted 2 state championships i believe.
Madrid had a great youth dg program :D

I won my first tournament at Madrid in 1999 (Intermediate Am). I attribute my success to learning how to putt at Madrid.

If you can putt at Madrid, you're set.

i wouldn't be surprised to see the course pulled in near future. Not much love for dg in Madrid since Jeff's gotten out of it. Someone wrote a letter to editor last week because her kid about got hit and thinks all the baskets close to kids activities should be moved, which would be about 8 of the 12.

Well, the ones that run through the ball fields and over the concession stand were never a good idea for permanent holes.
