An update for the Tornado Disaster in Joplin:

Unfortunately there are names to addd to the list who have been effected by the storm. Uriah Johnson is currrently in a Springfield hospital with internal bleeding and swelling on the brain. Please pray for his recovery and for the entire family. More details will come as we know them. Michael and Isaac Davison's home was hit by the tornado as well. The extent of the damage is not yet known, but but please remember all in your thoughts and prayers.

If you are interested in helping, there are several ways to do so. First, we will be having a raffle at the LBV Open this Saturday. We are asking players to bring things to make this raffle as big as possible Our hopes is to raise as much money as we can and give it to directly to the families listed above. Second, please buy raffle tickets if you are able to come and can afford it. There will be a slew of prizes. This is a time that you know exactly where the money is going and who the money is going for. Third, you can donate money by sending it via Pay Pal to discgolfer8@yahoo.com or to officers@joplindgc.com . Checks can also be filled out directly to the names of the players above.
