Wayne Forest, MR disc golf in Tulsa!
The glue that held the 2006 AM worlds together and made more back for the PDGA than any other AM worlds before of after.
Mr. I prepared for 120 to come for an ice bowl but was able to handle 180 that showed up.
Mr. doing the Oklahoma State Championship this year.
Oh yeah and a really good friend and suporter of Women and Jrs. getting into and staying into disc golf.

no offence to the other names on the list but if there is an event within about 150 miles or so of Tulsa that he cannot get to he still sends prize discs and merch for their rings of fire and even managed to get a Wal-Mart store to kick in on the last two Ice Bowls to the tune of $1000.00 each year.
keith aten, you are nominated
I nominate Dr Leonard Johnson as well, He has done everything to further the sport, From organizing new events to building new courses, He allways has time to offer suggestions, even to our 6 year old Max who loves the sport, He is allways there for answering questions, and was very helpful when Jodie and me sponsored our ace race. He is allways fun to play with as well, you dont feel intimidated when playing with him, He will even give you tips on technique during a skins game, Leonard motivates allot of players in the sport and does not mind helping someone who is brand new to the sport, There are people you cant stand to lose too in every sport, but Leonard is not one of them, so for this reason I go with Mike and Craig and vote for Doc, Go Leonard !!!!!!! by the way you can buy a few of his discs on obay by following this link. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=150326457251 , OK the auction is just a joke but feel free to look and bid and ask silly questions anyway, Vote LEONARD, HE RULES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hey Leonard, Dont worry, I will stop the auction and give you your discs back befor the Mount Pleasant Game, but how does a Pro lose so many discs during two rounds, lol Tom
Leonard Johnson!! A.K.A. Dr. Huge.
Getting city approval to put in a 18 hole course by hand with some volunteer help. He financed te course by himself we added concrete pads last summer all on his dime until more hole sponsors jump in. Leonard is planning on adding another 6 holes. He has put blood sweat and perverbial tears into this course in an area that never had one before and is next to a college campus drawing many new players to our sport. Last year he was asked to design and help with a new course in the Newaygo State Park, this course is completed and waiting on state bids for baskets to be purchased. Besides building courses, Leonard runs our weekly leagues, keeping all of our averages and rounding up CTP prizes. He also coordinates the Michigan Intercollegiate Disc Golf Challnge (MIDGC) that is currently in its third season. Leonard is always helping out players in any way he can. Oh, and he also teaches the Disc Sports class here at Ferris State University, here he teaches Ultimate and Disc Golf to both new and intermediate players, getting more players into our sport male and female. Our course has had a huge wave of female disc golfers crash onto it in the last year, most from taking his class and then bringing their friends out to play. Leonard has made a huge impact by placing this course where he did, reaching all age, race, gender groups located in this community and college town with his great love for the game. VOTE FOR LEONARD JOHNSON!!

I guess I am going to be the first to say it. I nominate Terry "The Pirate" Calhoun, and everyone here knows why. I personally thing that he should be the first to get this award, if he hasn't already.


Terry Calhoun is worthy of the award but even if he wins you all are fooling yourselves if you think you can get him to shut up.

Throw? sure. Shut up? no way.
