I wanted to check with you on what courses to play while in Ann Arbor. I will be there in mid-April for a few days and I'll be bring my bag of discs ready to play! I noticed that you're from the area and could possibly help.

On behalf of Juliana Korver, I am honored to announce her inaugural ladies-only disc golf event: Juliana Korver Presents La Vie en Rose.
This unique event will take place February 14-15, 2009
at The Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park in Live Oak, FL.
In Juliana’s words:
"Are you curious why this disc golf adventure has the name that it does? Literally La Vie en Rose translates to “the life in rose”. The English equivalent to this is “life through rose-tinted glasses” or even “life is rosy”.
If someone looks at something through rose-tinted glasses, they see only the pleasant parts of it. It is a way of life. It is an attitude that I aspire to maintain.
La Vie en Rose is a disc golf event that intends to combine many of the pleasant tournament aspects that we have experienced over the years as well as present new ones that will create a wonderful, memorable and rosy weekend.
This event is about warm fuzzies, feeling good and friendship. I hope that you all can experience the weekend through rose-tinted glasses and perhaps even take the attitude home with you to help you appreciate all that is good in life.
This will truly be a unique weekend that I hope and expect you will love."
Juliana has made the initial event announcement in person at the U.S. Women’s Disc Golf Championships and on the PDGA discussion board. For lots more information visit the tournament website:
Shawn Harrigan and I are the Co-TD’s for this event. We’d love to have your input, assistance, and sponsorship. Please e-mail email@example.com if you are inclined to help Florida welcome the ladies of disc golf to a wonderful weekend of competition and comradery.
Yours In Flight,
Mark “Denny” Ritner

It's nice to hear it's your first tourney. Keep reminding yourself that it is your first tourney and don't create extra pressure on yourself. My first tourney was Beaver State Fling when it was on the National Tour and I was an intermediate ammateur, I finished 65th out of 68, ouch! But believe it or not I was hooked, A couple years later and I was finishing in the top five in Advanced AM. in local tourneys. Each tourney to me is a learning lesson and it is great to see how many different ways it can be played. I think the best thing about tourneys is meeting all the different people and seeing everyones passion for the game not to mention the parties, YEEEE HAAAAA! Good luck but most of all have fun and enjoy the disc golf community. |>]-/body>
