Preliminary KOH hole assignments

Here are the preliminary hole assignments for Saturday. Be sure to double-check your hole when you sign in. Hmm, that sounds a bit weird.
  • Please make your TDs happy and arrive early to check in (8-9AM). Each player must sign our waiver before chucking a disc. We are on the site of an old military base, after all.
  • Those golfers who want their scores automatically added to their discgolfscene profile, please email me your email address and/or PDGA #.
After a lot of hard work, the Hill is looking great and has been getting a lot of play. It's been fun preparing for this event and we hope everyone has a great time. Best of all, it looks like Mother Nature is going to give us a nice warm and sunny day!

I feel like a kid the day before Christmas.
See you tomorrow!

Oh, no, it wasn't the airplanes. It was Beauty killed the Beast.

There have been three major releases of the movie King Kong. The original made its debut in 1933, followed by another in 1973, and finally the most recent 2005 version.

The 1933 version starred Fay Wray and had several working titles including The Ape, The Beast, and The Eighth Wonder. It grossed $90,000 its opening weekend, the biggest opening ever at the time.

The 1976 version featured Jeff Bridges, Charles Grodin, and Jessica Lange and received an Academy Award for Best Special Effects, an award it shared with Logan's Run.



The 2005 version featured Jack Black and Naomii Watts. It took in $9.7 million on its opening day and won three Academy Awards.

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter, Hillbillys!

The course will be closed next Saturday, April 18, for our King of the Hill tournament. This thing has been sold out for weeks, so if you didn't get in and would like to volunteer, let us know.

Mighty fine

A lot of hours have been put in at the Hill the past two weeks and she's looking mighty fine.

Thanks to all who have helped with the cleanup and improvements, especially Jim Bobka, John Rodenhizer, Rob Walker, Dave James, and Ken Gary. And thank you to Sean Franchi of Fly by Night discs for the bench donation.

If anyone heads over there this weekend and wants to earn some tree love, please pick up sticks on holes 3 and 4 and put in the piles at the bottom of the hill. Thanks.

The Hill should be looking nice for the King of the Hill next Saturday! Now let's just hope this rain doesn't stick around.

WW3 results

We had a record 21 golfers last night and several more new faces. A couple pros dropped by to show us how it's done, too. Tim Walsh shot a nice 51, but looked like he knew he could have done better. Oh, to be Tim and be disappointed with a 51! :-)

No aces this week, although I did clang one off the basket on 17. Mark my words, I am going to ace that mofo this year.

If your name was Pete, you won a CTP this week. Pete T earned $11 from the Pro/AM1 CTP and Pete N took home $10 for the AM2/Rec CTP.

Steve Walker won some of Marcy's homemade cupcakes and shared them with the rest of us. Awww...

Gotcha!

I had a feeling I'd get a few of you April Fools this year, and I did. I hope I gave you a chuckle today. And for those of you who still don't get it, there is no raffle and there is no car. There is no way I am trading in my truck for a sedan!

I evidently fooled some raffle website and was featured on their site today. Here's the email they sent me:
The raffle you posted on the Web was recently featured on the national Raffle Index at (website).

If there are any inaccuracies in the description of your raffle, please let us know by replying to this email.

Thank you, and good luck with your raffle.

The raffle website

Support your course! Buy a raffle ticket for a free car.

Tonight through next Wednesday, I will be selling raffle tickets for a free Hyundai Accent. Yes, you read that right. $20 a ticket. All proceeds go straight to the course insurance fund.

Since I lost my job a few months ago, I've been looking at ways to save money. Unfortunately, getting rid of my gas-sucking truck kept popping up on top of the list. So last weekend I bit the bullet, said a tearful goodbye to Big Blue, and bought a pretty nice gas-sipping Hyundai Elantra with the nice going away present my previous employer gave me. (Thank you severance package!)

New England Hyundai dealers are having this crazy promotion where if you buy a new '09 model, they throw in a free Accent. Yep, unbelievable, but with the way the economy is these days, they are trying anything to get people in the showroom. They are also letting you return any new car you purchase from them if you lose your job in the next year. Wow!

Since I have no need for two cars, I thought it would be fun to raffle it off and then donate the money to the course.

So, if you want a chance at a free car, be there tonight with $20 and you could go home with a brand new car next week!
