Dynamic Discs presents the 3rd True Life Bowl is This Saturday! - Feb 26th, 2015

The III True Life Bowl is this Saturday. Below are a few pictures (including the front cover of the Autism Report Magazine) of the 1st presentation to the Special Needs Classroom at Truman Elementary. Because of your support and giving, we raised enough money to buy computer tablets for all the students in the class! Last year we raised $2,000 and the school was able to purchase a Sensory Board. The board is a tool used to help the students work and develop their fine motor skills. The teachers have mentioned that both accommodations have been greatly used and a big help in the student's development.

This year the goal is to raise $1,500. If this is raised, the plan is to purchase a large Sensory Ball for the classroom, that works in a similar way to the board. I Believe We Can Do It!!!!

So, if you are on the fence on whether or not to come to this event, I hope the above will have you lean toward making it. This is a fun course (we will be playing the full 18), always great accommodations, and a very worthy cause!

I've been asked if people who can't make the event can still contribute. The answer is most definitely YES! Simply contact Nick DeRosa or myself and we will make arrangements.
As always, thanks for the ongoing continued support for this event and the support of the areas Disc Golf growth as a whole!!

The 7th Annual Lebanon Ice Bowl Recap - Feb 24th, 2015

The 7th Annual Lebanon Ice Bowl was definitely a true Ice Bowl. The attendance suffered because of poor driving conditions and the threat of more wintery precipitation throughout the day. Despite these conditions 29 players showed up to play and support L. Life (this years charity).

A remarkable $901 was raised, plus food, and clothing. A $5 fee, mulligans, and a drawing filled with multiple prizes including a Monkey Trap were the way the money was raised. A special thanks to all of you for making this happen.

The temps were decent considering how the morning started. I'm guessing there was about 5” of snow on the ground when play started. By the second round the snow was melting quickly. Congratulations to our Winners:
Jake Hebenheimer Open
Stan Balke Adv Masters
Seth Black Intermediate
Chris Waterman Recreational
Brandy Monnahan Women

SEE YOU THIS COMING SATURDAY FOR THE TRUE LIFE BOWL!!

There were 5 divisions that included Open, Adv, Mst, Int, & Rec

Winners:
Brad Rush - Open
William Marshall - ADV
Kevin Elrod - MST
Noah Dixon - INT

The weather, despite another Doom & Gloom forecast by some of the world's worst predictors on the planet (Meteorologists), was excellent. No rain, very little to no wind, fairly warm...

Sara Vocca from the Park & Rec Dept. Provided a count of $423 raised and she will be getting the final word on the lbs of food shortly.

A special thanks to Gateway Disc Sports, Dynamic Discs, and the Pitt Parks & Rec Department for donating the players Packs. A big thank you to all who came, played, and contributed to this event despite a very short notice!

Hope to have this again next year with more than 2 Weeks Notice

Bear Hollow Ice Bowl Recap and Get Ready for the Pitt Ice Bowl at Four Oaks Golf Course in Pittsburg, Kansas on January 31st - Jan 21st, 2015

All in attendance at the 1st ever Bear Hollow Ice Bowl in Ava, Missouri last Saturday was fortunate to enjoy unseasonable weather. It was nearly 60 degrees as 60 players came to try their luck at the first tournament with the course permanently installed. Although the terrain was a bit sloppy, few complained because it wasn't ice. There was some wind the second round, but it was still a remarkable day for disc golf in January!

Nick Helm, TD and organizer had two goals listed on the flier: $400 and 150 lbs of food. Nearly 150 lbs of food was raised, and even more impressive and exciting is the fact the monetary goal was more than doubled with over $900 being raised for the Heart of the Hills Food Pantry and Thrift Store! On behalf of Nick Helm and the City of Ava, a huge thank you and several pats on the back for all who took part in this event!! Who knows this may even lead to an annual event or perhaps a stop on the Tour as a PDGA event. Whatever happens, this was a record for a first Ice Bowl both in attendance and money raised. We were blessed with a near perfect day for this event!

Winners included Sandy Leech -Women's, Ray Renner – Recreational, Seth Black & Ray Presnell tied and played a sudden death CTP in which Seth Black won, Chris Dangler - Advanced, and Andrew Presnell – Open. Congratulations to each of you! The other big winner taking home a Monkey Trap was Mike Sisco. I thought this was fitting since he has worked hard on installing a disc golf course on his property that is opened to the public. If you have yet to play the course in Westplains you should.

DON'T FORGET JANUARY 31st IS THE PITT ICE BOWL TO BE HELD AT THE FOUR OAKS BALL GOLF COURSE ON AN 18 HOLE TEMPORARY LAYOUT! HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE!!

Bring On 2015... The 1st Bear Hollow Ice Bowl is Saturday Jan. 17th - Jan 11th, 2015

Other raffle prizes include 2015 Ice Bowl mini's, stash mini's, a full color Buzzz, a Beanie, a performance Long Sleeve shirt, a zip up hoodie and much more from Auto Zone, the Monkey and Bear Hollow. To help raise even more money for charity, Mulligans will be sold for $1 a piece or 20, the max, for $15. For more info please visit and like our page on Facebook, fb.com/bearhollowdg or call Nick Helm at 417-693-1019 or stlhelm@gmail.com . I can't wait to see all of you Saturday as we help the people of Douglas County and celebrate the Grand Opening of it's first Disc Golf course!

Winter Blast Update With Last Year's Totals - Dec 10th, 2014

Alright Ladies & Gentleman.

Update on the winter Blast:

Last year's totals:
32 Players
Temps. Never above freezing
6-7" of snow
$410 raised
Food, clothes, cleaning supplies, and more were all given to the CCFCC

This year I am confident we can smash the attendance record and the donation amount.
Because this is a charity event, with entry fees low, there has never been a players pack. This year Elephant & Castle has donated some money (thanks Doug Bowen) that will allow the first 50 entries to receive a cool Santa Monkey mini provided by Gateway (thanks Dom).

Several have asked how they can help. If you make a mean batch of chile, bring it (contact me too so I know you are bringing it). Also, bring raffle items. I have some things, but the more the merrier they say! Last, if you can buy raffle tickets when you come.
I appreciate the support and this event is for a great cause! See you all Saturday!!

Happy Thanks Giving! - Nov 26th, 2014

There is so much to be Thankful for at this time and all the time. To all of yours from all of us at DGM, Have a Blessed and Wonderful Thanksgiving!!

Jeff City Open Recap by Stan Balke (JCDGC President) - Oct 24th, 2014

t's over. The 7th Annual Jefferson City Open is over. For those of you that did not make it, it's your loss. This was the first year we had a 2 day, 'B' tier event. Attendance was down from last year, but I'm told that usually happens the first couple of years. It will be discussed whether next year will be a 1 day or 2 day event, but I'm getting ahead of myself.

This was our first year, and inaugural PDGA event at our, not quite complete, Dam Course at Binder Lake. The club worked diliginantly to get 2 holes, through the woods, opened up, 3 anchors/sleeves placed, and work on 2 temporary placements to get 18 playable holes in the ground. I want to thank all the members who helped to get this accomplished. It was a feat to be proud of. Especially with all the rain we've had, a State Cross Country Track meet the week before (that goes through a big part of the course), and the dreadfull loss of a good friend, and fellow Disc Golfer, Shawn Crowe.

Thank you to all the sponsors who helped make this event possible, your added money and prizes help to bring the players in to make this an event more enjoyable. Thank you to the members who helped go out and solicit those sponsors, for without you, the sponsors wouldn't be there.

A big thank you to Jefferson City Parks, Recreation, & Forestry for the work they did to get trees cleared out and brush piles moved, use of EZ cart and other equipment, use of building, mowing, and especially the use of 2, very fine, disc golf courses.

Special recognition to these individuals who helped on and off the course to make this event possible:
Brian Lansford for your work on the trophies (very cool), mowing both courses, tree cutting, brush moving, and anything else we asked of you.
Rod Braman for the course work, sponsorship signs, last minute details, club historian, with all the great photos you took, and sounding board for listening to my worries and bitching (please keep those conversations to yourself) lol
Jay and Jake Hebenheimer (Kid Fedora) for your sponsorships, Tree cutting, brush hauling, mowing,use of ATV, and again, whatever was needed.
Steve Sisson for all that you did. I can't list it all here all the things you helped out with, but especially sacrificing not playing so you could help coordinate all that was going on between 2 courses. That's a lot to do for one person.
Derred Scheperle, the lumberjack, who almost single handedly cut all the trees on 15 (Dam) to make it playable, the great cedar fence on 9 long (JC Miller), and the cool memorial cross on 17 (Dam) for Shawn.
Thank you Scott Elam, for the dedication and the vision to make this a 'B' tier event. You being here to be TD for this event saved my mental health. Even though you have moved away, you kept at it to help us make it though another year. Thank you for all the work you have done for all the tournaments you have TD'd and all that you have done for Jefferson City Disc Golf Club and disc golf in general. We will miss your inspiration, experience, and motivation. I will miss you.
Thank you Russ Burns, the Disc Golf Monkey, Kevin Carder, and the rest of the team for coming up to Jefferson City to make this event what it is, and the great payouts to the players. We enjoy the partnership we have with the Monkey team. I look forward to many more Monkey stops to Jefferson City in the future. Love you man!

One last thank you to all the players who came out to play in the 7th Annual Jefferson City Open. I hope you enjoyed the course layouts.The Dam Course is still a work in progress and will be in much better shape when you come back next year. I hope you liked the challenge. Thank you for the kind words about the courses, and the critique. I'm hoping this will be a course players will want to have on their wishlist to play. You, the players, have made this event what it is, and what it will become. See you next year.

If I did not list you on this long winded thank you, please know that I appreciate all those that helped out and continue to help with the Jefferson City Open, and the Jefferson City Disc Golf Club.

Peace

Stan Balke
