The Disc Golf Monkey Finale at SMORR - Nov 17th, 2010
Wow! What a Finale at the Souuthern Missouri Off Road Ranch. If you missed it, you truly missed a beautiful and challenging course. Along with the course, the SMORR hospitality was 2nd to none. Thanks again to Mike and Brandon Powell (owners of the ranch) and Jimmy Whitehead for making it happen!
The course proved to be a challenge as the best score carded was only 4 under (Adam Hunt, Open). Conditions were cold, damp and windy which didn't help attendance. 48 people did come to experience everything that was offered. With hills, trees, and length the course made for a tough two rounds. After the rounds, there was a play off for the Ace Pot, followed by a huge Ring of Fire (with close to $1,000 worth of merchandise), the fat EDGE Raffle, The Custom Innova Discatcher Pro target Raffle and then awards.
Congratulations to Adam Hunt for taking home the over all champion honor in the Pro division. He was able to hold off Team Monkey member Kyle McClure, who made a good push (with his 50 score) in the 2nd round. Great job to both of you. Other winners included:
Aaron Ulrich Adavanced
Shayn Woltz Intermediate
John Sheafer Recreational
Minna Dennis Women
Stan Balke Advanced Masters
To all of you great job!
For those of you who would like to know about the EDGE...We did meet our goal!!! With only 48 players we still averaged over $5/ player putting the total at...drum roll please...$2,579! Thank each and everyone of you who contributed. I plan on providing a final update of what has been done in the 4 state area, where the money was distributed. I will do this as soon as I receive the information from Jay and Des Reading.
Again, Thank you to all of you who supported the Tour in any way. I am hummbled to think that so many of you took the time, spent the money, and chose to play in my events! For this I am deeply thankful. See you this winter at the Ice Bowl and keep checking back for more Monkey events!
