Well another season is in the books, and Dacey was a hoppin’ in December!
TC Teams Fail to Defend Home Turf
Both the Owls and Ents had home matches in December, and unfortunately both took losses. The Owls had a strong showing vs. Team Rhode Island in singles, but RI flipped a 5 stroke disadvantage into a win after a super strong doubles round clipping the Owls wings 22.5-18.5
The undefeated Ents hosted the also undefeated and resurgent Team Nantucket, and started off in the hole after singles. Unfortunately the Ents were not able to rally in doubles, falling in the battle for first in their division. Even though the Ents lost, they still very much control their own destiny in PiP South.
Bummer. Both teams are again home in January to get chances at redemption and right the ships.
Sell outs GALORE
However the biggest news out of Dacey this month was having back to back sell out events to close the month! Jeremiah Libby ran a bring your own partner dubs event that had a sold out field the week before christmas, drawing teams from all over the state. The next weekend was the 2018 New Years Heave Tag Launch. For the second year in a row we sold out our tag launch event- but unlike last year we had weather nearly 50 degrees warmer- making it a MUCH more enjoyable experience for all! As you all know- tag sales go directly to course funds to help us make improvements, buy players pack items, etc etc. Your support goes a long way and does not go unnoticed. We cannot say enough about the Dacey community that comes out to all of our events- this place is special because of all of you! Thank you, from the bottom of our collective birdies.
We have plenty more coming down the pike in 2019! Be on the look out for our annual player survey dropping soon, and our first PDGA Event of the year coming in the form of a Flex Start C Tier on MLK day. We are planning a number of flex events, another couple of funsie events such as Trilogy Challenge, regular PDGA events and bringing NEFA events to Dacey. We are hoping that spring also brings the completion of the course, as the town DOES have White Tees ready to be built…provided we can have a dry enough spell to get them in there.
We again have two TC matches at home this month, with the Owls hosting Team Pelham, and the Ents hosting team Send It out of Connecticut.
