It’s long overdue, but Happy New Year, LoCos! Hopefully everyone is as excited about 2015 as I am! It’s a new year, a fresh start and a chance to set new goals (like better putting and taking Ian’s #1 tag).
One of the clubs goals is to start updating this site on a regular basis with any relevant news, reminders, and/or information on/about local events and activities. So, let’s get right to it:
4th Annual LoCo Ice Bowl and Chili Cook-off at Franklin Park
It’s just around the corner (Saturday, January 24th), it’s for a great cause (Loudoun Interfaith Relief) and it’s our first official LoCo Disc Golf event of 2015! As always, Brian Junkins has worked really hard to ensure this year’s Ice Bowl is going to be better than ever. Most importantly, this is a fundraiser, and Brian has challenged all us LoCos to help him reach (or exceed) the goal of raising $1,000 this year. My gut tells me we’re gonna make it happen! I’ve already heard a bunch of trash talk about the Chili Cook-off, so you better bring your “A” game. It’s also a great chance to start the year off right by upgrading your tags!! Avoid the rush and pre-register now. Hole sponsorship are also still available. All the information you need can be found HERE.
2015 Club Membership & Gear
Speaking of upgrading tags, the club is still accepting 2015 membership orders at this time. If you haven’t already joined and/or renewed, then you’ve missed the custom Paragon order and the chance to customize your shirt. Big thanks to Matt Shaffer for all his hard work and ordering the shwag in advance of the LoCo Ice Bowl. Matt did order 10-15 additional membership packages for those that would still like to join can (first come, first serve). You know you want one!!! Represent!!!
$20 returning members/$25 new members (shirt, tag, towel and sticker)
Thank you to everyone that has already supported the club for 2015!
2015 LoCo Indoor Putting League
It took a while, but we finally found a place crazy enough to house the 2015 LoCo Indoor LoCo Putting League! Old Ox Brewery in Ashburn, VA wants to see what we’ve got and they’ve agreed to start the putting league February 6th. The league will be held on Fridays from 7:00PM to 9:00PM. We just got word and still have to iron-out the details, but I just couldn’t resist! Putter in one hand and ice cold Alpha Ox in the other. If you haven’t had their beers…then you are in for a real treat. Get the Bourbon Barrel Black Ox before it’s all gone. More information to come…
Indoor Putting League at Revolution Bar in Centreville
Tommy Donelson is also running an indoor putting league at The Revolution “Rock & Billiards” Lounge in Centreville, VA on Thursdays from 7:00PM to 9:00PM. While it may not be LoCo, is a hell of a good time! Definitely check it out. More information can be found HERE.
There are a ton of awesome events right around the corner. I’ll start compiling a running list of local events as a reminder for all you procrastinators out there…in the next update (…no, I’m not procrastinating).
