Wednesday Weekly Results - Week 5

No aces and the scores were over all pretty high aside from the top few. Ned shot a season low 49 followed by Mark Steglemann with a 50. It was a bit windy I guess but I didn't think it was bad enough to effect scores the way it seemed to.

Hill Yeah Spring Classic 2!



Thank you all so much for making “The Hill Yeah Spring Classic 2” tournament such a success!  We had such a fun day and I hope that you all did as well!  The weather was great and it makes all the work worthwhile to see everyone with a smile on their face.


Bill Corr drained the $128 ace pot on hole 17. It was Bills first career ace and it he did it very early in the first round. Nice shot, Bill!




Make sure you go spend your funny money at the Hawks Nest store. Josh and/or Marc are looking forward to seeing you.





I will be submitting the results to NEFA within a few days. I am just waiting to get the new member #’s to ensure everyone gets their proper points. If you signed up for NEFA on the morning of the tournament and didn’t get your points for this tournament please let me know. It may take a while for the points to show up.

The Devens Hawks Hosts Team Webster Tomorrow

Team Webster is back at Devens tomorrow (Saturday 3/29) looking for a little redemption. Last month Team Devens beat those Fish & Game guys pretty handily so I know they are hungry.   Now its the Hawks turn to lay the smack down!

Good luck to the good guys. Take down the win and end the season on a high note!

Here is a preview of Marc Duci finishing Aaron Kaczowka off..   The look on Aarons face is priceless. 

For those casual players. The Hill will be crowded but playable.


(Yes, I know that is an Osprey but it's still funny)

Super windy out there last night, holy cow! The scores were about 3 strokes higher on average (though some, like mine, were much worse than usual). Joe DeCarolis slammed hole 15 with a nice skip ace and earned the $99 ace pot. Nice shot, Joe!

Hill Yeah Spring Classic 2 is Coming Up Fast!

Wow, our first big tournament of 2014 is just two weeks away!

All of the pieces are falling into place and I hope we get some great weather and some low scores.

We will have CTP's on EVERY hole including some pretty valuable and unique stuff. A Dynamic Discs Commander bag is up for grabs for all Hole Sponsors, a 2014 membership to Maple Hill and a Midnight Buzzz (only 1,000 made!) are both up for grabs for all players. We also have a ton of other discs, some hats and some
t-shirts available to specific divisions.

For those of you on the wait list, unfortunately for you there has been no movement whatsoever since online reg sold out. Of course, there is usually some action shortly before the event and if there is any movement I will certainly let you know if you are able to get in.

Here are all of the tournament details.

Come on out for some practice at our Wednesday league.

I can't wait to see you all there!

Wednesday Weekly League #2

NEXT WEEK START TIME IS 4:30pm

What a crazy night at league. Despite the cool weather, periods of sleet and an extremely early start time we nearly SOLD OUT! We had 68 players join us and we were just 4 people shy of a full house.  Absolutely incredible. We had some issues with daylight so we will stay with a 4:30 start next week. I really hadn't planned on having every hole occupied with 4somes on all but 4 holes and that slowed it down a little.

Couple new things going forward:

League has to be a first come first served. This includes only you showing up in person and signing in. If there is a potential sell out I don't think I can work with text/phone check ins. If you wanna play than you best just get there before 71 other people do. Once we sell 72 spots you are able to play The General for fun. Please also get to your starting hole by the specified time. Thank you all for your cooperation!

We have already sold 70 tags and have had 78 unique players so far. Average scores are WAY high but that's due to all of the newer players and some less than perfect playing conditions. We will whittle that average down soon.

Week One of League is in the Books!

NEXT WEEK START TIME IS 4:30pm


What a way to start the 2014 season off. Crap weather but some really great spirit out there and a grand total of 50 warriors played. 46 of which bought tags along with another 3 who bought tags but could not play.

Here's a little history lesson, Last year we started the league with a beautiful afternoon and had 40 people come out,  the year before we had 27 people on the first day. I'd say we are growing at a good pace and I wouldn't be surprised to have a few sellouts this year. Hope to see you out there next week and hope I will have some of the rust scrapped off by then =)

Wednesday Weekly League Returns March 12th!



The Wednesday Weekly returns on March 12th. Come get your 2014 bag tag and be ready to tee off by 4:15PM. This was once again the most popular singles league in Massachusetts last year (nearly 1,500 golfers came out) and I am aiming to make it bigger and better this year so come join the fun.

We use league as our primary fundraiser to help pay our yearly insurance bill. We make it fun for all, so don't worry that you have to be an all-star to have a good time. We group players into four groups based on skill/gender, so you'll always be competing with someone about as good as you.

Basics
• Four player pools (A pool for players who average 58 and under, B pool for players who average between 59-68, C pool for players who average 69+ and a women’s pool).
• A weekly cash payout, a cash CTP for each pool, an ace pot and a season long points event. Lots of raffle prizes at end of the year including some big ticket items.
• Buying a tag saves you $2/week. Visiting non-taggers can still play and get in on the cash payout but can't compete for a tag.
• You must be a tag holder to collect the ace pot
• Wednesdays, starting March 12th
• Be ready to go at 4:15pm. Time will move up to 5:30pm according to sunset.
• Initial cost: $20 for 2014 tag
• We will do a skills challenge at the end of the night as soon as daylight allows
• CASUAL PLAY IS LIMITED TO “THE GENERAL” ON LEAGUE NIGHTS.

Weekly cost
• Tagholder: $5 -
$2 payout, $1 course funds, $.50 CTP, $.50 ace pot, $1 season points event & payout.

• Non-Tagholder: $7 -
$2 payout, $3 course funds, $.50 CTP, $.50 ace pot, $1 season points event & payout

Details
• No handicaps.
• One round of singles
• If you leave before tags are redistributed, get someone to grab it for you or risk us losing it.
• Tags are in play for casual rounds and tournaments. Higher tag can challenge a lower tag and under most circumstances, lower tag must accept.
• Ace pot rolls over each week. If there are no aces for 2014, half goes to the course maintenance/insurance fund and half goes to the 2015 WW ace pot.
• Two CTPs, one for A pool and one for B/C/W pools.
• There will be an improved year-end Bag Tag Bonanza to end the season.
• Lots of raffle prizes at the Bag Tag Bonanza. Earn raffle tickets by attending league, hitting an ace, winning the nightly CTP or winning the nightly skills challenge. The more you play the better your chances of winning are!


Points Series Rules
• I will track points for each player & post the up to date standings on this discussion thread
• A, B, C & W Pools will have separate standings
• 1st place in each pool gets 4 points
• 2nd place in each pool gets 3 points
• 3rd place in each pool gets 2 points
• Everyone else gets 1 point for playing
• If you move up a division at any point in the division 95%-60% of your accumulated points will travel with you to the new pool. Percentage is lowed as we go through the season. If you move down, full points are moved.
• Top 3 (or more) in points will win a cash prize at the end of the season.
• Other ways to gain a point - hit an ace/win the nightly CTP/win the skills challenge

PDGA Round Ratings
Beginning in May we will do 10 weeks of PDGA rated league rounds. Your league round will count towards your PDGA rating (if you are a current PDGA member). If you are a new member make sure you get me your member #

PDGA Women's Global Event - May 10th @ Maple Hill

On May 10th, women from all around the world will play two rounds of disc golf at their local participating Women's Global Event. Scores from the first two rounds of each participating tournament will be submitted by the individual tournament directors and rated by the PDGA. These round ratings will be totaled and averaged to determine the player's "Global Score." For the rounds to qualify, the event must include two rounds and have at least three ratings propagators playing on the same course layout each round for ratings to be calculated as accurately as possible. The Global Scores will be updated throughout the day to determine our Women’s Global Event Champions and the winner in each division will receive a memorable trophy. 

Our Devens community now has a bunch of great women and hopefully they can join this event and kick some butt.

Our local event is being held at Maple Hill in Leicester, MA

Good luck ladies!!

Team Devens vs.Team Devens 2 THIS Saturday!!

We knew it would happen eventually and now the day is almost here. This Saturday our two home teams face off against each other at Amesbury Pines DGC. This will be a pool play event and Team Devens is also going up against a solid Newton Hill team, TD2 will also face the Borderland Bombers on their quest for greatness!

One thing is for sure, this will be a fun day with lots of good friends.  I'm sure a victory by either of us will feel a little bittersweet. Tee off is around 9 so bring your food to the hall and get checked in to your capt. when you arrive.

Thank You for a Fantastic Year @ Devens DGC!


Wow, what a year it has been for Devens DGC!  There were so many highlights in 2013 but none compare to the installation of our new 18 hole course.  Together we built something special and as a small thank you to those who helped build the course we made a tag that we hope you will proudly display on your disc golf bag.

I should have these tags in hand shortly and I will start distributing right away on an "as I see you" basis. 

Thank you again and I look forward to an excellent 2014!






Donnie Phillips Nails First Ace on "The General"!


Well, it didn't take long for someone to ace on the new course.  Donnie Phillips hit hole 2 last weekend for the first ace!
