The Winter Blast Update - Dec 10th, 2012
Today actually feels like “Old Man Winter” has arrived. With all the beautiful days we have had in November and December, one almost wonders if there is really only two weeks to prepare for Christmas. Having a wonderful five year old daughter, I can assure you that Christmas is almost here! 2012 proved to be a year of amazing growth for disc golf all over. Locally, I'm sure all of us have seen the many new faces at the surrounding parks in casual rounds, leagues, and tournaments. With these new players and the veterans of the sport, the tournament participation boomed. Talking with other promoters in the US has been equally exciting because the growth seems to be everywhere. I don't see next year slowing down, and I have heard of several more tournaments being added including a few on the Monkey Tour (the Monkey Tour 2013 season dates will be released soon). So get prepared for 2013.
The Winter Blast is this Saturday December 15th. This tournament will bring a close to an amazing 2012 season and bring in the 2013 season. As mentioned before, the Winter Blast is a Fund Raiser for the Christian County Family Crisis Center (CCFCC), of Ozark, MO. This is a tournament in which we all can give back in this time of giving. HyVee, Price Cutter, Wal Mart, and Q102 have all provided help for this event already. Along with the Turkey Trot give-a-way game, the CCFCC will be holding a raffle type drawing. There are several awesome prizes for the drawing: an Innova Disc Catcher Sport, a Free Keen Shoe Card, a Vibram Disc Golf Dri Fit T-Shirt, a Disc Golf Bag, and you never know what Shadow at Q102 will come up with. This event should be a lot of fun and played on the beautiful Grubaugh Park in Ozark. I hope to see you there.
As a Pre-Christmas gift I want to give all who attend $2 off all discs purchased on the 15th (excludes payout). So if you have some last minute shopping to do this is a chance to get that disc golf junky something, or treat yourself...I should have the New Champion Rocs in too!!! Simply say, “Merry Christmas Monkey” when you check out!!
