Normally, at the November and December Monthies, we would provide an (optional) opportunity for the candidates to (re)introduce themselves and provide public comments or statements.  Due to COVID-19, health and safety concerns and the cancelation of the Monthies, that simply is/was not an option.  In lieu of social gathering, we have provided the opportunity for the candidates to provide statements, or letters, in which we are here to provide to you today.  We’d like to thank the candidates for taking the time to write the attached Candidate Statements and we truly hope that you take the time to read them.

Like last year, we will be using Election Runner ( as our online balloting system.  It’s straight forward, it’s easy and accessible and most importantly, it’s secure.

On the morning of Saturday, December 12th, you will receive an email from “LoCo Disc Golf Club <[email protected]>“.  This email will provide you with a customized (unique per member) link to access and initiate the online balloting system/process.  You will be provided the opportunity to select, or vote, for up to 5 individuals.  The election will run through Saturday, December 26th and results will be provided immediately thereafter.  A courtesy email reminder will automatically be sent to members that have not completed the online balloting process.

The final TD Reports and Event Fees have been submitted/completed for both BAM! and the LoCo Open.

Nearly a year before the event(s), we request a date and we start high-level planning. We have a few meetings about it. We discuss the logistics. We debate the details. We set goals. We negotiate on player’s pack items, food options, prizes, trophies and more. We fund-raise. We schedule meetings with park managers and land owners. We start working on event logos and designs. We work with vendors for shirts, for discs, for umbrellas. We spend endless hours making trophies. We stay up late making putter clipboards. We schedule looooooong work days for course prep. We create caddy books, we create score cards and we work with the printer. We create, manage, and update registration. We deal with finances. We print labels and we stuff players packs. We prep tee signs and we paint OB lines. We weedwacker for days. We pick up 1,000s of branches. We smoke BBQ. We make banana pudding…lots of banana pudding. We ask for help, we ask for favors and we volunteer…again, again and again.

…then we wake up the next day and we go to work (our “normal” jobs).

We…we…we… a single person just cannot do it alone. It takes a club…it takes a team. It’s really quite amazing how much work goes into running a simple 2 days worth of events. It’s hard, it’s fun, it’s rewarding and we’ll do it all over again next year.

It’s impossible to list every single person that has, does and will contribute to events like this…because there truly are so many, but there are a few that simply have to be mentioned.

(and please do not take offense if you’ve not been included on this list)

John W Iliff – You do it all. You are a machine. This doesn’t exist without you. The time, the effort, the love…I cannot thank you enough.

Brian Junkins, Matt Lamberski, Mike Tomlin and John W Iliff – Thank you for your patience, your help, your guidance, your drive and your time (that we’ll never get back). Volunteering for the board is the best dumb decision you/we every made

Steve Ganz – “Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain!” My sensei.

Jeffrey Kinman – I hope people know how much time, effort and plastic you put into this. You’re selflessness is inspiring, motivating and infectious.

Tim Lawson, Ryan Bailey, Bob Romich and Jeffrey Kinman – These courses don’t manicure themselves! I’ve heard nothing but complements and Freedom Center has never looked better. The amount of time spent on course prep for these events is intimidating…and you knocked it out of the park!

Rob Stark – The breath of fresh air. Thank you so much for being a part of this. Thank you for the support and thank you for fueling the fire and helping us remember why we do this.

Christopher Patterson – The baskets at Freedom Center never looked better! A lot of hard work went into those sponsorship decals and it’s more than you’ll ever know!

Steve Marinich (Parcel Plus) – Year after year after year…the time you spend for us and you can’t even make the events.

LoCo Disc Golf Club – Thank you for welcoming everyone into our “homes”. Thank you for all you do. Thank you for the support. That you for making this all so so worth it. We love you.

I’ll send the calendar invite out in a few weeks and we can start planning for 2019.

Registration now open for both the Brent Anderson Memorial (BAM!) and the 7th Annual LoCo Open

Can you believe it’s already here??? A weekend in LoCo!!! REGISTRATION for both the Brent Anderson Memorial (BAM!) is now open!!

First, on Saturday, September 22nd, we have the Brent Anderson Memorial (BAM!). This is going to be a very unique event and we’re really hoping to have a fun laid back experience…just the way Brent would want it! This PDGA C-Tier Pro/Am Flex Start event will be one round at Clark’s Run Disc Golf Course at Freedom Center. All proceeds (in excess of cost) will go directly to Freedom Center (the incredibly gracious land owner).

So, what does “Flex Start” really mean? It means you can come and play just about any time you want!!! Yep! Not a morning person?? No problem! We’ll see you after you wake up, lazy! Wanna beat the heat?? No problem!! We’ll be there early with coffee! Gotta work the day shift??? We’ve got slots open all the way up to 4:00PM!

Flex Start means that you play when you show up…BUT…it’s first come first play in the order in which you show up. UNLESS…you purchase (completely optional) a tee time for $5 per person! Yep! You can cut the line (all in the name of charity)!

Then, on Sunday, September 23rd, we have the 7th Annual LoCo Open! What more can we say…it’s a LoCo tradition! Once again, this PDGA B-Tier Pro/Am and O.D.D.S. event will be two rounds of the best the Frank has to offer! Enough said.

As always, with both events, we’ve got some SWEET Amateur Player’s Packs! Guaranteed to exceed to the cost of admission (and some)!

And for the Pros? You know the drill. Cold…Hard…CASH!

If you have any questions or issues…don’t hesitate to reach out to us! See you on the course!!!
