Before I get into all the fun and exciting action of Wrightsville I want to extend a huge thanks to the crew maintaining the course. All those granite walkways were super handy and I’m sure are pretty labor intensive. One year since the first time I played the course and the work going in clear. Thanks!!
And while I’m thanking peeps let’s say thanks to our Title Sponsors – Three Penny Taproom and The Mad Taco – and our Supporting Sponsors – Base Camp Outfitters and Brewster Ridge DGC . Also thanks to James aka Rang Deuce for TDing. And a special thanks from the advanced women for not making us play golds:)
OK on to the actual tournament. Since this is only my second tourney of the season (yes I had to dust off my discs from lack of play) I’m not really up on who is leading where in all the rankings. But from what I gathered in Pro Jeff Spring was leading with Dave F. and Mike H. hot on his heels. Coming out of the first round three Pros shot a new course record — 49. Nice work to Dave F., Todd H. and Mike H. That is some serious hot shooting and pretty impressive. But after round two it was Mike H. to take the day with Todd Holmes and Dave F. coming in 2nd and third. What does that do to the standings? That is an excellent question. TD’s should have scores in the next few days and we’ll find out.
All and all it was a great day, and glad to see so many peeps out especially considering registration went up a few days beforehand. I know there were a bunch of prizes donated but atlas I went swimming instead of watch the awards so not sure who to thank there…
I’d also like to welcome Chuckles Chamberlain back to Vermont. I was hoping to win my bet on how many times he’d fall down. He had a couple of close calls but never quite hit the ground. With his first showing back in VT after a two year hiatus in D.C. he came in 2nd in AM2. Not too shabby. And to here’s to many more rounds of discgolf in his future.
Here’s the full run down of the divisions and full scores should be up in the next few days:
MPO – Mike H. placing first with a hot 99, Todd H. 2nd with 100 and Dave F. with a 101.
AM 1 – Kyle Junion took first with a 109 and Jim Baily at 110 and Jon M. in a close third with a 111 (wasn’t he playing Pro last year?)
FW1 – Dana takes first with a 119 with Jen hot on her heels at 123. Also, huge shout out to Keri Hess for making it! The ladies had a great time and Keri rocked some nice discgolf and one hella crazy putt:)
MM1 – Jim S. took first with a 120 and Gary 2nd with a 127.
PGM – Todd Stermback takes first with a 125 and Skip S and John S. tie for 2nd with a 126.
AM 2 – Ross Dunham with a 111, and three way tie for 2nd with 122 – Chuckles Chamberlain, Stephen B., and Tim Tadlock.
FW2 – Sara D. shot some consistent discgolf with a 62 both rounds. Nice work Sara.
Jrs – Stevie B. took first with a 146.
I’d like to say I’ll see you at the next one (Burke View) but I won’t be there. But you should. Some of the views are my favorite of any VT DG Course. I’m hoping to make it to Finals but that’ll be game day decision. The fact that I haven’t played BCO yet this year is just shameful so hopefully I’ll see you there.
Since I won’t be at Burke (and maybe Finals) if anyone wants to take pics or send a write up my way that would be great. If not, no worries but the internets will be silent.
Hope to see you out on the course.
