Hi folks. Your friendly (and absent) blogger here. Sorry to have missed the first ever Mt. Sunapee Open. Sure sounded like a great time. Huge thanks to the friendly folks at Mt. Shunapee for building a course, hosting a tournament and sending me pics to send out to the internets.
And Jordan Potvin for stepping up again to do a little write up – since you know, I wasn’t there. The scores have been uploaded, and you’ll just have to have some patience for an updated GMPS Leader Board (unless of course you want to volunteer to update it yourself).
One last friendly reminder that the kick off to the 2013 Ladies League is this weekend: Waterbury Center, 10am.
And have you registered for the Sap Bucket? I have – so yeah I’ll be there:)
Mt. Sunapee Open from Jordan Potvin
A fresh morning, full of promise. GMPS tournament #2 was about to begin and the throws started quickly. I could see the practice basket from the car and I methodically threw every disc in the bag. Putters, midranges, and drivers until the Grip EQ was just a shell and I couldn’t remember where they had all landed. Parked a few and only hit the building once! Andy Powell was there with some new pro valkyries and borrowed the sharpie before he threw one into the building too. Chris Young was working the GMDGC sign at the tent and Allen was finding long zip ties to get everything attached. There was excitement in the air and many eyes watched the lift, waiting for the chairs to begin their slow ascent to the top. continue reading »

One tournament down and now on to our first ever Mt. Sunapee Open. From what I hear it’s a pretty spiffy course.
A huge thank you to Nick Jennings for TD’ing. Seeing that I’ve never played at Sunapee don’t have much to add other than the details are below and don’t forget to be a doll and pre-register.
I unfortunately won’t be able to make it. Yes, that’s my pitch to have someone send me a write up and hopefully take some pics.

Hope everyone had a great time playing Pinnacle this past weekend. How’d the trees treat you? Since I was out in the mountains enjoying some family time discgolf wasn’t really in the cards. But luckily Jordan Potvin volunteered to do a little write up about the day. Thanks, Jordan!
Want the run down of scores and divisions? Yeah, I bet you do. Well, as soon as the TD does all the fun data entry (yeah the thankless work of a TD is never done) and gets it off to our Tour Manager (thanks, Frothy) we’ll get that out to the internets.
Until, then the write up below and a few pictures of the day will have to suffice. BTW if you have any pics feel free to send them my way.
I’ll be missing Sunappe too – but we may have another guest write up. See you at Sap Bucket!
As always make sure to send huge thanks our GMPS Title Sponsors: Three Penny Tap Room and The Mad Taco. And to our GMPS Supporting Sponsors: Base Camp Outfitters DG and Brewster Ridge DG. Yep you guys are great:)
– Your “friendly” blogger, GK
UPDATE: Spencer is on top of it and has posted scores from the day on the forum here: http://www.gmdgc.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=1464&start=160#p12408.
Pinnacle Spring Run Off-IV from Jordan Potvin
When I arrived after stopping at a local diner and getting a hot roast beef sandwich smothered in gravy, I was greeted by a overcast skies and gusty winds. I’m just thankful the rain had passed. The place seemed deserted at first, only a few gents at the registration table and a lonely practice basket. I threw a few discs at the hill, and when I entered the woods I was greeted by the pleasant knocking of plastic on trees. Then I noticed bodies moving through the forest, golfers in their natural habitat. Jeff Spring was laying out meteors to the middle of the fairway and I even convinced him to flick a couple shots on hole 5. continue reading »

Are you a lady DGer? Know any? Well, the ladies league is building upon the fun times from last year. We’ll be gathering once a month for a casual round – no money, no numbered tags, just the ladies having a fun time. And as always, we’ll rotate courses each month.
A huge thank you to Taylor Johnson for designing one kick-ass poster – that I’ll be working on distributing in the coming weeks. And to the “god father” of discgolf in Vermont, Paul, for letting the ladies meet at his amazing course at Calais.
We’ll also have some pretty snazzy bag tags this year. Yes you wish you threw like a girl, as we always have more fun:)
All ages and skill levels welcome and make sure to sign up for the email list to get the updates, reminder email, etc. — http://www.gmdgc.org/ladies-disc-golf/ Have a question? Email Gretchen at firstname.lastname@example.org. And don’t forget to spread the word to other ladies. continue reading »
