The Summer Wrap Up
It’s been a while since we’ve had a write up of the events happening at Dacey- mostly because the summer is traditionally a slower time of the year for us. This was no different this ye…
..ok, fine. It was a busy summer for everyone. Myself included. I 100% slacked on writing things. Whooooooops. Let’s tie up the summer and look forward to fall.
Ruler of the Roost
In mid-July we held the Ruler of the Roost PDGA C Tier, and new to Dacey, NEFA sanctioned event. Featuring steamy temps and slick trophies made by Zack Pepin, the event was a hit! Congrats to winners Shane Wyatt, Kat Duquette, Mike Dussault (Playoff), Nick Olsen, Eric Hanson, Emily Hanson, Zack Mazzone, Kelly Meisner, and Nicki Broderick on their wins! You can see full results here
The Trilogy Challenge returned to Dacey in flex start format this year, with Chuck Edman putting in a full days work manning the table! This year the discs were the Vandal, Gatekeeper, and Keystone that were approved for play. Congrats to Dave Beadenkopf for taking A Pool, Christian Hayman for taking B pool, James Moulson for taking C pool, and Emily Hanson for taking the Female pool.
The Oakley’s Come to Town
Ahead of this years MVP Open, we continued our tradition of bringing in some touring pros for a clinic. This year, we had not one, not two, but THREE touring pros join us! Team Dynamic Discs pros Eric Oakley, Tina Oakley, and Peter McBride stopped by to share their knowledge with us. They spent plenty of time with us, answering questions and making sure everything we hoped to get out of it, we got. They also hung around after to run a few field games, give some stuff away, and even shared some ice cream with us after! We hope to be bringing an additional event with them involved next year!
NEDDG Championship Held at Dacey
This year we were honored to host the New England Deaf Disc Golf Championship run by Michael DuRoss. This event was open to the deaf and hard of hearing community from the surrounding states. Congrats to Drew Dallamora for winning MPO, Tony Pert in MPM, Max Nemirovsky in MA1, Jack McKenzie in MAMaster, Allen Brokaw in MA3 and Lisa Kinsman in FA1!
We were happy to host this event, and appreciate the efforts of Michael and Lee on getting the course prepped for the event. Thanks guys!
We closed the weekly league for the year with a flex-start run through the white layout – with the aim of emptying out the $600+ ace pots. Many came out with the intention of taking home a nice payday, but only two were fortunate enough to leave with some fatter pockets. Congrats to Greg Peterson and Joe Houlihan for acing 16 and 17 respectively, about a minute apart! Nice work guys!
League will pick up again next spring- huge thanks to Chuck for running things week in and week out!
Now that the season has changed to Fall, we are pleased to bring Feathers of the Fall 2 on November 3rd! This will be a pdga C-tier event and will serve as our final “large” event of 2019. This year we are offering tournament player packs courtesy of Dynamic Discs featuring the art of Scott Groome! Registration will be live on 9/30 here
We also have some smaller Holiday Hoot and Scoot Flex Start events on the horizon- with Dan Snyder in the TD chair for Columbus Day, and we are aiming to offer events on Veterans Day, Thanksgiving Weekend, and weather permitting- around Christmas.
As tournament season winds down, that means that Team Challenge is upon us! Check in next month as both the Owls and Ents will be in action starting in October! Good luck to both teams!
