Wrap Up: Black Falls VI
The Green Mountain Point Series has been capitalizing on the good weather and just six days after the Sap Bucket X, we again enjoyed near perfect weather at two of the most beautiful courses New England has to offer. The last several years it has rained during this tournament, so this warm, breezy, mostly sunny, DRY day felt all the sweeter as 67 disc golfers meandered their way through the meadows and woods, of first Cherry Hill and then Blackfalls. If you missed this tournament you should know that Johnny’s gems are continuing to improve with age and, simply put, have never looked better. The amount of work that man has done in the last two years is really quite unfathomable. Cherry Hill continues to break in at a shockingly quick pace and is an undisputed gem of New England (the new alley on 17 is beautiful). Blackfalls got some serious love this year too with Hole 13 becoming the new 11 and Holes 11, 12, and 13 being replaced by new holes 12, 13, and 14. The new holes are unique and challenging and have made Blackfalls a bit more difficult.
A huge thanks is in order to co-TD Chris Mayone for doing a fantastic job on a bum knee! He was all over the courses to help with spotting and gave an entertaining Award Presentation as always. Also, thanks John S. for doing tags! Since no one aced there was a CTP from the 10th Hole Silver/Gold during the calculating of scores. Mike A. from Mass took it — put the 400 + ft. shot 10 ft. away! He was also part of a Mass invasion that was a theme for the day in the Pro Open division. BCO also represented with 3 members making the 3+ hour trip.To see all the division winners, check the list below and to see the full results, click the link!
The GMPS standings will be updated in the next few days so, as usual, check back soon to see how things were shaken up! After nearly a third of the series complete, standings and trends may be starting to take shape so check in on Circle Three’s next posting for all of the up-to-date news and analysis that’s fit to print.
Next up: Gnome’s Challenge V on June 23rd, a tourney that has only been made possible by huge efforts by a crew of members and locals that took the initiative to go clean it up after Irene spearheaded by Chris Young securing a NEFA grant and organizing a work day. All this being said, we’ve got a full 4 weeks in between now and Gnomes which will kick off another back to back tourney weekends when the series heads south to Base Camp for the Killington Classic. If you don’t like the way the season began for you, here’s your chance to get some more practice in before some fun mid season tourneys!
