In an hour I'll be heading over to Wazeecha for doubles leagues. One of the regulars has stationed his ice fishing shanty right off of hole 7, so we'll have a heated place to take a break. (not that we need it today - it's going to be a balmy 18!)
Then it's off to the Central Waters brewery, then a Willy Porter show. Hard to complain about that!

I just submitted a request to the Disc Golf Foundation under the College Matching Baskets program.
The program will match the purchase of up to nine baskets, if the course is on University property and available for the public to play.
I am very optimistic that something good is going to happen...

I finally got over to Sparta, WI to play the courses at Justin Trails. There are two courses at this pay-for-play facility (just $5 a day!) and they are worth the trip. It is a fully functioning farm, with cows, llamas, corn and hay, plus they run a bed and breakfast.
The classic course is a very nice advanced course. There are tons of elevation changes and some breathtaking backdrops. The holes are challenging and varied, and there is a nice flow to the course. A couple holes could… Continue

On Wednesday nights in Wisconsin Rapids, Nacho runs a random draw doubles league at Wazeecha (Willow Run). $1 goes to the course, and the rest is paid out to the winners. Most weeks there are 30 or so players.
I don't know what it is, but these are the funnest leagues I have played in, week in and week out.
This past week a local bar sponsored us, giving us some free pizzas and beer tokens. About 15 of us hit the place up for four hours of revelry. Here's hoping that can… Continue

We got a solid crew together and went back to Treehaven over the weekend. Randy the Platty Daddy was again leading the way, bringing all his experience and insight. Along on this trip were three solid golfers and all love to play and readily donate time to our disc golf community. Steve Suhaysik, a current VP in the Ace Holes; Dan Hergie, a transplanted Madison disc junkie (like myself), and Mike Krause, a solid Ace Hole and Bud Hill veteran.
Our efforts were focused on laying out… Continue

The various member schools of the Upper Midwest Collegiate Disc Golf Association will be participating in the third annual Strange Brew Huck up at Highbridge Hills the weekend of April 26-27.
Last year we had 65 people head up for two nights of frivolity and all the disc one can handle. Six half barrels from South Shore Brewery kept us lubed.
This year should be as big or bigger. Friday night will be the return of the Strange Brew Stew, where you bring a canned good and we… Continue

9 current and former Ace Holes will depart the frozen wasteland of Stevens Point on Friday, bound for the dirty dirty south. Our first stop will be Bud Hill near Memphis, where we will hang with all the friends we met on last year's trek.
Around Tuesday we'll head toward Little Rock, and play some select courses. After a night or two on the road, we'll arrive at Ted's Dread in Kansas City. We'll spend 3 or so days hitting the finest courses in that area.
Last year we took… Continue
