The Lexington Open XI is throwing in a CTP for each of the 5 divisions for the Kentucky State Singles Championships. Each CTP will be a Soft Magic and a DX Roc. In addition, the Men's Open field CTP winner will also get a Champion Groove.  Plus, the Rocs and Groove have this year's Lexington Open stamp on them, a little preview for next week.

Can't wait to lose to you all on Saturday.

Lee and I will be out at shelter number three (tournament headquarters) tomorrow evening if anyone wants to come through and do a early check in while playing practice rounds. We should be there between 5pm and 7pm. If the weather is crazy we'll see you on Saturday morning, but chances are we will be there Friday evening.

All Tee Signs are up...and looking great. All OB has been painted...any problems...BLAME BOB! Kevin mowed the fairways on the open holes himself and they look great. Players packs are wonderful for a C-Tier....I mean how many C-Tiers have you been to where you can choose between Champion Groove, Champion Boss, Star Destroyer, Star Valk, Star Road Runner, Star Tee Bird, KC Pro Roc, KC pro Aviar?...I mean that's just unheard of.

Remember to bring a few extra bucks. For lunch...we have a local resturant.. The Dugout...cooking up some burgers and such...good food...just ask Chad...he'll tell ya. With just an hour between rounds and limited choices within driving distance...support a local establishment and eat at the course so we can all munch and tell horror stories of that 15ft doinker that you had a brainfart on.

Also, we are having a drawing...selling some raffle tickets...it is for a good cause...I'll let Keith talk about the charity...but the prizes will be hats, tee shirts, discs...maybe even a Champion Glow Starfire...who knows? Kevin is pulling out all stops.

Liz, You shot excellent...I've confirmed your scores from the score cards and the scores listed are flip flopped for you and Nicole. I enjoyed shooting that first round with you. Kevin should have the scores corrected once his family releases him from Easter obligations later today.

I see you failed to mention that you gave those strokes right back on 6 both rounds laugh

Good shooting man...it was ugly with that crosswind and early cold.

My absolute sincerest apologies go out to Liz for screwing up the Pro Women scores last night.  I was falling asleep at the keyborad while I was entering the scores, but that is no excuse.

Ladies and gentlemen,

Your 2009 Kentucky State Disc Golf Champion in the Pro Women Divison is Kentucky's own Liz Shooner.

Don't call it a come back, she's been here for years and looks like she is ready to take names.

Mark, 16 long is now played as an Island Green. The left of the green has been marked off with landscaping and anything to the left of the green...all the way back to the short pin...is now OB. If you fly over the green...you go to the drop zone located in front of the green across the creek. Anything left of the short pin...temp marked about 2 feet up the hill...is OB.

It creates a situation where ...in theory...you make the big arms think about a placement shot instead of just unloading on it....however...you can just unload...fly the green...go to the drop zone and hit an easy 20 footer...or..if you don't fly the green..and have to drop at the back of the short pin where you were last inbounds...pretty easy layup...circle 4 at the most...people that carded more than a 4 here had either a bad tee shot and then OB...or just got way too aggressive and took needless OB strokes.

We would like to thank everyone that preregistered and filled the Kentucky State Disc Golf Singles Championships at Idlewild a week prior to the event. You players made this event a success and we enjoyed putting it on for you.

The weather wasn't the best and the course was pretty sloppy in spots, but there were still some good scores thrown out there. Congratulations to all division winners and to Scott Rief, who won the opportunity to represent Kentucky at the United States Disc Golf Championships.

The correct scores are now up. http://www.pdga.com/tournament-results?TournID=8572 Lee pointed out to me we were off on the par, but that was quickly fixed tonight. I have apologized to Liz for the screw up on her score and I apologize to all of you for that par mix up. I was just in a hurry to get those scores up for you folks, before having some family stuff to do Saturday night and today. I would have gone over with a fine tooth comb tomorrow, rested, and fixed then, if they weren't brought to my attention today.

I want to thank all of our sponsors:

Northern Kentucky Disc Golf Club Group of folks that work on courses in NKY that decided to call themselves something. www.IdlewildDiscGolf.com for updates on current projects or workdays the club is working on.

Keen wasn't able to help us out last year when I asked for Kentucky States, but kept their promise on helping us out this year!
"If you can encourage people to go to our site and fill out a HybridLife Communty profile that would be great. Be sure they select Disc Golf in the section “How I Create, Play, Care” The more support I can show from discgolfers in the world, the more KEEN can support Disc Golf."
That is part of a message from my contact at Keen to me and I believe him. Please go and let them know how much you enjoy disc golf and how you appreciate them sponsoring the sport.

Mr. Lee Stephens Lee donated a tall stack of plastic to the tournament, helped out on the course all week prior to the tournament, helped out getting stuff together the night before and helped tons on getting the final board completed on Saturday. He was a TD and deserves the credit.

Lyle McCoon
Lyle donated a tall stack of plastic with the Lexington Open stamps. Reminder that awesome tournament is just days away, this weekend.

Scoreport & board cards.

Thanks to all of our great sponsors!!! Anyone I failed to mention here, please know your support was greatly appreciated.

We did have a raffle. I will call it a great raffle. 100% of the proceeds from the raffle went to a friend that is raising money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society through his Team In Training http://pages.teamintraining.org/soh/philtri09/nthomas event.
You players and sponsors helped raise nearly $500 towards his goal to help those battling various cancers.
Every player in the tournament was given a raffle ticket for the drawing and was able to increase their odds by purchasing additional ones for $1 each or six for $5. Brad Anderson was very generous, as well as others, and his numbers were soon being called to win numerous prizes, that overflowed off of a pinic table.

Some of the fine things that were raffled off included:
Various first run discs, including Star Destroyer, all new never thrown.
Bunch of CFR or Cryztal discs with different tournament stamps, all new never thrown.
Innova t-shirts and hats.

All other kinds of disc golf stuff, as well as some quality gems:
Bottle of Absolut New Orleans, which is a special edition Mango/Black Pepper flavored Vodka. Makes a fine Bloody Mary, I'm just saying.
A giant remote controled model train set.
Free pair of Keen Shoes (your choice from their website).
$25 Mastercard.
Coozie full of change. There could have been .59 cents in there, there could have been $1.59, wasn't sure.
Gallon of windshield wiper fluid.
The Soul Train 25th Anniversary three compact disc set.
Set of hi-fi tower speakers that were purchased from dudes in a white van.
Idlewild Disc Golf Course reusable bottles.
Holiday collector Budweiser stein.
1998 Starting Lineups action figure collector set featuring Sammy Sosa & Mark McGwire in package, unopened. The juice is loose.
The complete Hank Williams 10 compact disc boxed set.
America: The board game.
Craftsman cordless drill.
Big Box of 60's Soul: Beg, Scream & Shout 6 compact disc boxed set.

Lots of other items as well as the things that got the loudest applause, from a crowd that seemed to be entertained by this fat man & a dude with a moustache some couldn't bear to look at, Girl Scout Cookies!!!

Thanks to everyone that participated, you really were giving back and making a difference.
I did forget to give out the survey we like to give out at the end of the day to get feedback, so I invite all to go to www.IdlewildDiscGolf.com and leave comments on the 2009 Kentucky States Feedback post, by clicking the comment link.

Kevin, Fred, and gang,

Thanks for a great time Saturday.  The tournament went very smoothly, I had a lot of fun (other than absolutely sucking in round 2).  Thanks for putting it on.  The course looked great.  It is obvious you all have done a ton of work there.  Lunch was good.  The raffle was fun, although, I must state for the record, that if I had given away a can koozie with change in it, it would have been Canadian change.  And a big thanks to Eric Simpson for putting us up at his house Friday night on very short notice.

Hope to see you all this weekend.

Lyle

Good shooting man...it was ugly with that crosswind and early cold.

Lets not talk about that :D haha... actually the crosswind on 5 is what helped get the 3, it really helped carry the disc up and over. Between rounds I actually used the wind to carry a disc to about 40 short of the pin up there for a putt thats what gave me the idea to go for it during the round. The winds were SUPER favorable for over-the-top. The only other guy on either of my cards that 4'd it also went over the top. Everyone else that I played with took a 5 I think.

Hole 6 was just a haul for me though. I could do no right on it. Though it was mostly the result of trying to bite off more than I should have by ripping a forehand, and not getting over on it enough. Boom, kick right into the shule and instant death. :) lol
