Chris Eads takes the Open Division, but Hunter Wright (an Advanced Am Player) smokes all scores with a 169 in the 3rd Annual Lake Bella Vista Open! - May 31st, 2010
The 3rd Annual Lake Bella Vista Open was a smaller field than expected this year, with a field of 54. Despite a smaller field, the players were treated to two days of discgolf on the nicest and most challenging course in Northern Arkansas (and possibly the state)! "The course was as nice as I have ever seen it" was mentioned many times because of the grounds keeping work put in by Randal Reisner, Kyle McClure, Chris Sheafer, and the City of Bentonville. Thanks to you all, the course looked amazing! Along with the well manicured course the weather was near perfect with a very light breeze and nothing else but a lot of sunshine.
After 2 tough rounds of golf all players were invited to Gusonos Pizza for the EDGE Raffle dinner party. The party was one of the best with incredible Chicago style pizza being served! Almost $200 was raised there for EDGE, with a little more than $50 being added from the Ace Pool that was not hit. Adding to the $435 from the first two events, this puts the EDGE total at $685! At this pace, we will have no problem reaching the $2,000 goal set for the year. If you are not familiar with EDGE please visit their site at edgediscgolf.org . This is the best disc golf program for the future of our sport going today. Please support whenever you have the opportunity!
Congratulations to Chris Eads (Open Champion 172 Rd Ttl), Brian Guthrie (Open Masters Champion 178 Rd Ttl), Hunter Wright (Adv Champion 169 Rd Ttl), Bruce Heidebrecht (Adv Grand Masters 209 Rd Ttl), Chris Sheafer (Adv Master Champion 189 Rd Ttl), Kevin Jones (Int Champion 179 Rd Ttl), and Greg Westmoreland (Rec Champion 197 Rd Ttl). Notes to point out: Hunter Wright's 169 was the best of all divisions, 3 over top pro winner Chris Eads! 13 year old Kevin Jones not only won the Int division, but was only one stroke out of cashing in the Open Division (Great Job kid, keep up the incredible play)!
Again thanks to all, and I look forward to seeing you at the next stop on the Disc Golf Monkey Tour in Miami, OK June 26th.
