This one should go on everyone’s Bucket List…even if you aren’t a disc golfer.
Another great story in the local “Towns” section of the Press Democrat. This makes about three stories they have done on us. This one started when I posted the Crane Creek Ace Race on their events calendar. I then received an email from Nick Walden, the Cotati/Rohnert Park correspondent asking who he could talk to for more info. I forwarded that to Kevin Parkhurst and low and behold they sent out a photographer and everything. Continue reading
We have no more spots left for the 2013 Crane Creek Spooktacular Ace Race!
A couple of morons started a fire just off of hole 11 at Crane Creek today. Fortunately, a couple of our guys were there and took a photo of the jerks as they fled the scene. Thanks to Steve Schroeder and Noah Parker we have good descriptions of both the truck and the guys.
According to our guys, the two made a run for the parking lot as soon as they saw what they had done and made their getaway. If anyone knows the guys, or have any info on the truck, please contact the police or the rangers.
White Toyota Pick up. No shell/camper. Raggae/Rasta sticker in back window.

Passenger: Smaller, stocky. about 5’7″ to 5’9″. Younger but not by much. Darker hair from what we could see. Yellow t-shirt. Both had disc bags.
Any information on these guys will be appreciated! Help save our
Yes, I have finally emerged from the post tournament coma. Final scores have been uploaded to PDGA so check your scores and let me know if anything looks wrong. I had to have Josh Sommers read final scores to me on Sunday because I just couldn’t read the %^^ screen. There’s no telling what kinds of numbers I plugged in so give it a look before it become official.
Thanks to all the UFOS, the greatest disc golf club in the world. Special thanks to:
- Kevin Parkhurst who wrangled the club’s basket to populate the Taylor Mountain Course.
- Greg Goben who did much fetching, hauling and storing, as always.
- Josh Sommers for his disc and shirt design, all his great help and suggestions and for being my eyes at the end.
- Roger Cansler for being the shirt slepper.
- John Child for being the disc director
- Lewis Bitney’s Grandmother, who, as usual, provided the treats that kept the natives from getting too restless while they awaited the results..
- All the guys who turned out for the Crane Creek work crew that got all of the tee boxes ready to be washed out by Saturday’s downpour.
And all the guys who volunteered and transported their baskets so we could have Sunday’s course at Taylor Mountain!
Saturday’s monsoon at Crane Creek was more than offset by the great day we had at Taylor Mountain. Everybody agreed that Taylor Mountain is going to be a great course! Now all we have to do is get it in! We could have been a bit better organized with the tournament but we had a great time anyway. Hopefully, next year we can have a raffle and a better awards ceremony. In speaking of plans for next year, e, there is a brief poll at the bottom of the page that we would appreciate a response to. Until next year!

Congratulations to everyone who turned out for the weekly Singles Handicap League. We had 27 players this week, which is a new high for us and pretty darned good for a weekday league! Our Hot Round winner was a visiting player, Adam Toll who took home $27 for his 45 round. First place for handicapped players went to Tony Gardin, who declined the first place purse, saying that his handicap is so out of line right now (his is just settling down now) that he would take the third place purse this week. So Tony tood home $11 for his final score of 48.
So the first place purse of $38 went to Devon Kregenhagen f49, second place of $27 went to Warren McCormick for his 50 and fourth place of $5 went to Brad Cameron with his 51. Complete listing available at Disc Golf Scene. Congrats all….
Congratulations to the winners i the July 9th Match.
The Hot Round Purse (Raw Score)of $17 was taken by Roger Cansler who also took home Bag Tag 4.
First Place (handicapped) purse of $26 went to Tony Gardin.
Second Place (handicapped) purse of $17 went to Ken Pascoe
Third Play (handicapped) purse of $8 was a three way tie between Steve Degard, Ryan Gardin and Matt Throop. Ryan took it on the throw-off.
The CTP on Hole 7 went to Roger Cansler with his 7.5 foot throw.
