(written by Wayne Kiddle on http://www.ngdgc.org) All Funds taken in during this event will go to help one of the newest disc golfers in our area get back on his feet; 9 month old Aiden Marley Hughes. Please come out and help us help the Hughes family. Jason and Melanie Hughes have played a big part in improving disc golf in this area, they helped to found the NGDGC and contributed a lot of blood sweet and tears to improving the course at 'Oregon Park' and have worked diligently in the creation of the new course at 'White Oak Park' in Paulding Co.

Due to a number of requests we are changing the format for the Aiden Marley Hughes Charity Tournament this Saturday. Lots of people don’t want to play the worst shot doubles the second round and some can’t play in the morning and some can’t play in the afternoon, so…. (Both rounds will be played best shot doubles) And…..
Advanced and Pro will still draw from the Red chips and everyone else from the white, so we will still pair up partners advanced with beginner teams, but you will change partners for each round.
Players will team up for the first round of regular best shot doubles, and the score your team gets will be “your” score for the first round, then you will draw again for a partner for the second round and the score your team gets will be “your” score for the second round. Whoever gets the lowest total score for both rounds combined Wins.
This way we can have anyone play first or second round only… however they will not be included in the final total score and the prizes. So that those who want to contribute and play a little golf can come and play one or the other round and not mess up the 2 round competition.

Hope to see you all there

Ok so this is the sort of thing that happens when you try to throw something together last minute…. Both of the pavilions have already been reserved at Oregon Park for Saturday, which means we will have to set up shop somewhere else in the park. It also means there will be a lot more foot traffic around the park, so play will be a little annoying but we are still going to do it. Just come prepared for a little inconvenience. But it will be nothing like the inconvenience that Jason and Melanie are having right now, so go ahead and come out and support them please… thanks see you all tomorrow.

Here is the plan we are all going to park on the other side of the road by T-pad #18 and we will have a tent set up there for sign in and all that. We will also have the grill set up over there so everyone park there and we will do lunch tailgate style, so bring your chairs ect. So the whole parking area by T-pad 18 will be disc golf central for tomorrow. This will also keep the Baseball parking off our T-pad
