First and foremost, the People's Championship weekend was one of the most amazing weekends that i’ve ever been involved with. There are so many people that helped make this weekend successful. Thank You Tim Slough for TDing the South Mt Course, Jeff Lagrassa for your scoring expertise as well as the Spotter/Fisherman on Hole 18 at Jordan Creek. Robin Billig for all your help getting Jordan Creek ready as well as your awesome canopy. And Jason Davis for doing all the coordinating with the Cities and Parks Commissions as well as your help with my locked-in predicament on Friday at the Mountain. Many thanks to all who helped courier the pizza, beverages, helped do check-in, setup, breakdown etc. Thank you all!
Special thanks to our sponsors, DiscGolfPlanet.tv, Dodo’s Disc Golf Shop, LVDC, Utopia Disc Golf, Innova Disc Golf, Bill and Christy Belanger, Craig Hoch, Paragon Disc Golf, and Bank of America’s Wendy Lewers.
Course Highlights: Miker Moser shot the Hot Round at Jordan with a 46 and Devin Frederick shot the Hot Round at South Mt with a 44! Great Job Gents!!
Miraculously, Mother Nature cooperated this weekend despite the weatherman’s forecast. I’m thinking Mother Nature is a MrDiscGolf fan The only serious rain we had was during the post round scoring before the awards ceremony.
Congrats to all the raffle winners.
