LoCo News & Updates

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

loco-ice-bowl-2014

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

LoCoTagSpeaking 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

logo_old ox breweryIt 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.

Up-and-Coming Events

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).

The 2014 LoCo Open Pro/Am

LocoOpen2014FinalRegistration is open and filling fast for the 2014 LoCo Open to be held at Franklin Park in Purcellville, VA on Saturday, September 20th, 2014.

This is the third year of the LoCo Open and it’s the LoCo Disc Golf Club’s premier event every year. This year, we’re making the leap to a PDGA B-Tier and adding at least $1,000.00 to the pro purse. Like last year, it is a “True Amateur” event with sweet player packs for all pre-registered amateurs and trophies for all divisions. This is an O.D.D.S. event too, so get your points while the getting is good!

We will once again provide BBQ by Chunk for lunch and will have a nice vegetarian spread for the herbivores.

If you’re in town on Friday, September 19th, you won’t want to miss a special edition of the LoCo Disc Golf Club’s Random Draw Doubles hosted by Matt Shaffer. Bring $5 and meet at the Rotary Pavilion at hole #10 at 5:30pm.

This event is always a lot of fun and sure to fill so don’t wait to sign up! Get all the details at locodiscgolf.com/open and register online today!

See you in September!
