The JCO Recap and the Finale Registration Opens Tomorrow! - Oct 22nd, 2013
The Jeff City Open was another maxed out event with 100 players. Binder never looked better, and it has never played tougher. Under the direction of Scott Elam (Tournament Director), you could tell that a lot of thought, time, and effort was put into the planning and preparation for the JCO this year. Awesome players packs for all players, incredible Caddy Books, course in the best shape ever, good after party food, and a fun EDGE Skills Shot Competition on Sunday made this one to remember. To the Jefferson City Disc Golf Club, sponsors, volunteers, and players who made this a record turn out, a big pat on the back and thank you for a job very well done!
The added OB flags, string, and island shots had many people talking. For the sake of time, the long island hole had to be adjusted during the 2nd round making it a touch easier. Despite how incredibly tough the course played the Open Division leaders devoured the course and the field! George Smith of Columbia shot -11 taking 3rd (7 shots better than the 4th spot), 2nd Place's -12 was shot by Das Loomis (writer for Discgolfer magazine), and the Jeff City Open Champion Arturo Villarreal of Kansas City shot a -13 winning by a stick. These 3 players played nothing short of spectacular! Congratulations to all 3 of you and to all the others who placed in their divisions!
The Disc Golf Monkey's Going Banana's Finale will be held November 9th at Bethel Assembly of God in Springfield, MO. The Flier is up and Registration will be open tomorrow. If you would like to attend this event please don't wait. This is not a course that has room to add holes nor will time permit us to do so this late in the year. You may sign up on Disc Golf Scene or with me at the shop if you are local. Pastor Nick DeRosa and the church are very excited about this course and are eager to host the Finale. Looking forward to seeing many of you there. For more information look at the flier and feel free to call, text, IM, or e mail with questions.
