666 Devil Went Down to Georgia Tourney - Aug 21

It's a going-away tournament for John!

Here's the info from Luke:

Donnie Phillips and Luke Adolph are co-TDing a tourney with a joint purpose. We would like to send Devens LEGEND John Borelli down to Georgia in style while raising some money for Dave James & his family.

Many of you know the Borelli story but here it is regardless! Marcy took a new job at PDGA headquarters in Appling, GA back in April and John has stayed behind in Massachusetts to tie up all the loose ends here. Well, the day is coming soon that John will rejoin his distant love in Georgia and leave us all behind.

John hinted a few times that we should throw him a going away tourney but I think we would have done it anyway even without his persistence! In all honesty, John has been an integral part of the Devens course and to the local disc golf scene and he will be missed by all of us.

We also thought that while we are all getting together to see John off to Georgia why not try and help a local disc golfer family at the same time! A couple of years ago John ran a tournament to raise money for Meg James, the daughter of Dave and Kari James. Meg had been diagnosed with Leukemia and we raised a decent amount of money which assisted the family with the obviously staggering bills and expenses.

Meg finished her treatment in May only to relapse in June. She is back in treatment now receiving chemo. Soon she will receive radiation and then a bone marrow transplant. The family is being as hopeful as possible but they could really use our support and positive thoughts.

Along with half of the money from the low entry fees going directly to the family we will also have a donation jar at the registration table. Please bring what you can to support them and consider donating any winnings.

Please join us on August 21st!
