Temperatures and Number of Events Rising…

As June came to a close and July rolls in the temperature has been rising. Between the summer heat and humidity we have seen a heat wave with heat indexes reaching triple digits. No matter the heat, Dacey has been hopping with activity this summer! Here is a little recap and preview of what’s to come…

  • 6/29-6/30: Ball and Chain II. Greg Dowdell ran his second Ball and Chain event, featuring a round of 9 holes at Maplegate (where he is the course pro) for some doubles ball golf, then a round 18 doubles of Disc Golf at Dacey. Congratulations to Dan Snyder and John Giampapa for taking home the W!
  • 6/30: Zack Maron ran a private event of about 24 people on Saturday Afternoon. I stopped by to collect some stuff from the shed as they were setting up. They seem to have a pretty good traveling thing going on here! Thanks to Zack for reaching out to us about running a private event! Also thanks to the players who respected their space!
  • 7/1: Jeremiah Libby ran a BYOP (Bring Your Own Partner) Cash Doubles event in the hottest muggiest day of the year and pulled 14 teams for it! Congrats to Sam Henderson and Shane Wyatt for taking down pro with a two round score of 100 (!!!) and to Eric Wilson and Carlos Alvarado for taking down AM with a two round score of 113.
  • 7/3: League as usual!
  • 7/4: All Dacey Admin hands on deck to bring you the Hoot and Scoot II holiday Flex Start Sanctioned C-Tier. This event will be a one round sanctioned event that allows players to show up between 9am-2pm and play with either a random group or a group of their choice. Pros will play for cash, AMs will play for funny money to Infinite Discs. REGISTRATION IS DONE HERE FOR ALL AMATEUR PLAYERS
  • 7/7: Team(s) Dacey Try out 1: Alex Sakash, Chuck Edman and new captain of Dacey 2 Paul Sales are conducting try outs for all interested parties in participating in Team Challenge this fall and winter! Team Challenge is a winter league where course teams square off in a round of match play, then play doubles stroke play to crown a victor. Dacey 1 has limited spots available, but Dacey 2 is actively looking for players! Come one, come all at 10am! Show up to 1, 2 or all try outs and find out what its all about and if you have what it takes to be an Owl!
  • 7/14: Dacey Admin team brings back the Trilogy Challenge to Dacey! This event allows players to test new Trilogy Molds in a competitive, yet laid back environment. As it was last year, we will have a raffle table featuring goodies from Infinite Discs, Prodigy Disc, Grip6, Ridge Roller Customs, Birdhouse Disc Golfand Arsenal Discs. 
  • 7/16: Team(s) Dacey Try out 2: 530pm start!

Also to keep on your radar…

  • Raivis Markons-Craig is running a sanctioned PDGA league at Borderland Disc Golf on many upcoming weekends. We encourage you to check out his league, as well as Borderlands’ regular league on Thursday evenings hosted by Jon Cattel.
  • Unfortunately Stephen and Tara Scansaroli are going to be moving north soon to New Hampshire. No matter how far they are, the Scans’ clan bleeds Dacey Purple and will always be a big part of our community. As a farewell, Scansy is thinking about offering a fun event as a going away bash. Keep your antennas up for that!

Hopefully we will see you all out there soon! Remember your sunblock, and above all things STAY HYDRATED!!!!

Hoot Hoot!
