Record Attendance of 84 Helps the 5th Annual Jefferson City Open be the Best Ever! Recap - Oct 22nd, 2012
The 5th Annual Jefferson City Open was the best it has ever been. The 84 player record turn out was definitely the icing on the cake, but the great job done by the Jefferson City Disc Golf Club that included: promotion/awareness of the event, course maintenance, course improvements (new pin positions), and other tournament prep work really made this a special event. You can definitely see the way the JCDGC has pulled together and is now fully on board with making this event even better next year. If you missed this one you won't want to miss next year's JCO!
The weather was nearly perfect. It was a warm Fall day with little wind. The course was beautifully manicured with a large array of Fall changing leaves on a wide mix of trees that Binder Park offers. Most players were glad to find most of the creek beds dry leaving little OB if in the creek. At times it took an additional few minutes to find discs that slid under the downed leaves, but volunteers even took care of many of the leaves the day before event. I don't think better weather could have been ordered.
There were 9 divisions at this year's JCO. Most of the divisions had tight races to claim the champion title. In several divisions 1st and 2nd were only seperated by a stroke or two. I would like to give a big congratulations to all who cashed and a big shout out to all the champions crowned: De'Neal Hedrick (Wn Int), Rebekah Kersey (Wn Adv), Dan Ensor (Rec), Justin Baker (Int), Rob Nahlik (Adv), Mo Louis (Adv Mast), Eric Sappington (Adv Grand Mast), Tony Drennan (Pro Mast), and George Smith (Open). Great job winners!
I am already looking forward to next year working with all of the new and old members of the JCDGC. Great Job again!
