Meeks Madness PDGA C-Tier 8 Mar 2008

Postby tdg » Tue Jan 15, 2008 3:10 pm

The first ever PDGA event at Meeks Park in Blairsville, GA. This is a 1 day "C" tier. Matthew Mashburn and I will be running the tourney. Matthew should have a flyer ready no later than next week. I know that the Pros and Advanced will be playing the long tees both rounds. The Advanced age protected on down will probably be playing 1 round from each tee. This course has been getting great reviews. Come and see what the fuss is all about. Give us a week and you should know all the details. Just wanted to let those of you know so you can keep the date open. I will have flyers at the Toccoa Ice Bowl and at the Crucible in February. See you all soon - John

Thanks for the info John. Check is in the mail. I played Meeks a couple of weeks ago and it is worth the trip. Lets fill this thing up and overwhelm D-Wiz.

D-Wiz is psyched about the tourney. Next year it will be his baby to care for. I agree with you about the course, it sure plays tougher than you'd think. I played it this past weekend and shot a -8 on the short. My best on the long course is still +1. It will be interesting to see what kind of scores the better Pros will put up. See you soon - John

I didn't play the shorts. The longs are harder than they look for sure. The shorter pads looked shredable though. Can't wait to play this one. You guys did a great job on the course.

If you missed Earlewood or The Crucible come to Meeks and play for the Meeks Madness Final Four Trophy. After the scores come in, the top 4 scores of those who participated on the long courses for both rounds, basically any Pro or Open advanced will get a shot at the final four trophy.
It will be best score on a safari course. 4 holes only. If a tie occurs there will be a tie breaker. We should get a players list up later in the week.
Get in on this one before it fills up. See you all soon - John

You are Welcome Mr. Wiz and I thank you, and Mr. Nisewonder, for your work on this event.

BTW - I had pie during the Eclipse. Man I love Eclipses and I love pie. Hmmm pie.

I am also going to love my super cool Meeks Madness Star Ontario Roc which I will probably show off while I wear my super cool Meeks Madness one of a kind T-Shirt that I will have because I sent my cash in by the 2/29/08 deadline. How is that for a reminder :?: :)

Vern has his game face on! Watch out... Thanks for the friendly reminder. Snail mail can get you, so be sure to get those entries in today!

Please come out and show Union County how many d-golfers play in this State. The commissioner put the course in because he saw a course at another park. D-golf hasn't caught on up here, but Union County is still extremely supportive of it and provides course improvements all the time. Don't be sorry you missed this one...I mean, it's a John Nisewonder tourney!

Let's get a good showing. We want to continue and grow this tournament!

Meeks Park received some play this weekend with two noteable events. John Nisewonder tied the known course record at -1. Matthew Mashburn aka D-Wiz had his first ever ace on #16 back tee pad. Come to the mountians and play Meeks Madness!

Good mix of holes. Some long and open, some short and technical. It's worth the trip for sure. The course plays harder than it looks.

It is a lot of fun, kind of reminds me of Redan with elevation changes. I sent Griff and my registrations in Friday. This course is well worth the trip. Lots of quality holes with a lot of variety.

Course

Postby D-Wiz » Mon Feb 25, 2008 5:15 pm

Meeks measures 6,030 from the back tees and 4,187 from the short. The shortest hole from the back tees is 180 and the longest is 733. There are some open holes on the front but every hole, even the open holes, have a tree or two. Be thankful the leaves are not out....

Clunk, the leaf status depends on either the PDGA or the weather...whichever happens first.

Brim, camping has several meanings but Vogel State Park is one of the notables which is about 15 minutes away.

Redan Randy, glad you're heading North for your 1st ATLANTA OPEN. Keep driving and we will see you in March.

Use this address:

434 Meeks Ave, Blairsville, GA 30512


Take immediate LEFT after turning into NGT down past Senior Center to upper parking lot.

Check the weather later in the week and ignore Mike D for now. We are usually at least 10 degrees cooler than Atlanta which is nice in July.

No predictions from the rookie assistant as to if we will reach 90....

I was hoping that nickname would never come up again. I spent a lot of money and hours in therapy because of the curse my father gave me (and the bad last name).

I'll play in weather under 60, but I'll be complaining.

Hopefully the weather will clear out early Saturday morning, but it's still gonna be cold. There are 9 other PDGA events going on this weekend in states north of us.So, bundle up, it could be worse. Matthew has done a great job in getting some added cash for the event. We are talking about moving next year to June or July.See you all tomorrow - John

Nope - I guess Moseley Ice Bowl was good training. You gotta get your mind right for Winter Mountain Snow Golf.

When I was a kid I had a Mink Coat...I looked like a Junior Pimp. I guess my mom decided I had to look good when I went to the lord's house.

Tournament is still on for tomorrow! I have a desk calendar from my favorite TV show, "The Office".

Today's quote is from Angela talking about Dwight...."I know that patience and loyalty are good and virtuous traits. But sometimes I just think you need to grow a pair."

See you in the morning unless your pansy asses drive to Alabama for warmer weather with Dollar!

Big Thanks to everyone that ran and helped run Meeks Madness! I had a great time (except for the snow and ice first round) and it is a great course. I am still trying to thaw out!

Extra Thanks to those that paid me for my first tournament ace!! It was hole 12 with my new Pro Ryno.

Go C.P.!!
MEOW!!

Good thing Clunck wasn't there.:roll:
(Now Matthew won't forever be judged by how fast he gets the scores up.)

Meeks is truly the newest gem we are so privileged to have in North Georgia; no less, in the southeast. With all kinds of challenges on a beautiful piece of property, this could become a favorite for many. There's champion level potential there. :D

I had a great time too - really well run and organized. 54 in those conditions is unbelievable Jay - great shooting... This course is deceptively difficult and a lot of fun.

Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. Thanks Matt & John and all that helped out. I would suggest going to Blairsville to play this course. It would make a good day, or overnight trip.

Nice Ace Kat!! 8)

Fun tournament. Thanks for all of the hard work John and D-Wiz. Also thanks to all the guys that put this course in, it's awesome. Congrats on the ace Kat. The snow was great too. Who was the fool out there in shorts all day. He must be all man.

Yeah, nice ace! I was waiting to tee off on 13 and saw the whole thing. Awesome.

Great job on the tourney John and Matt, and Barry for superb addition skills. Look for article and photos soon in North Georgia News.

The "fool in shorts all day" was Mike Buchanan from Ohio, a US Forest Svc. ranger. Came down to visit family in NC and heard about the Madness. Nice dude, hasn't been playing long but is hooked now.
I used to be disgusted, but now I try to be amused.

D-Wiz, scores? We aren't going to allow you or the six other dwarfs to run another tournament if you can't get the scores up in a timely fashion. I can't wait to see my 700 rated 68 and 1000+ rated 54.

I want to say a big THANK YOU to Barry and Brett for helping out with all the numbers between and at the end of the rounds. It sure took a load off of my mind. Sorry that the awards ceremony wasn't what it should have been, but we had a lot of cold people wanting to go home. Thanks for showing up. I believe we had 65 players. We are looking into making this a June event. Until Matthew gets the scores posted here's a little recap.
Phil Arthur won the Open Pro, while Jake Nye took home the final 4 trophy. Brett Porter took the Advanced. Fred Williams won the Adv. Masters. Clay Martin- Int. Randy Beavers a local boy took the Rec division. While another local ,Chuck Somer won the Novice. Woody Blackwell took the Pro Masters in a playoff. Jay Phillips set the tourney record with a second round 54, that is a -1. Take care and we'll see you all soon - John

First, I would like to say "thanks" to all 66 players (10 extra signed up the day of) that played in some rough conditions in support of our first tournament. The Union County Rec. Dept. couldn't believe how many people showed up to play in those conditions, so THANKS for playing!!!

Winners and notables...

Pro Open
Phil Arthur 1st 59, 60 119
Josh Henley T2nd 65,57 122
Jake Nye T2nd 59,63 122 Jake also donated 30 used discs to help us spread the sport to youth in this area.
Justin Romito T2nd 62,60 122 Justin donated some Oregonian CTPs


Pro Master
Woodrow Blackwell 63,64 127

Advanced
Mr. Brett Porter 61,59 120 Brett helped all day with scoring and posting. Couldn't have done it without him.

Jay Phillips 68,54 122 Jay still has the course record tied at -1 and the tournament record of -1

Hugh Torbit 60,63 123 Hugh helped in many ways, especially driving the cart for CTP help and is officially one of the 6 dwarfs.

The rest of the groups played one round long, one short.

Advanced Master
Fred Williams 1st 60,52 112 Big help unloading and loading and course design help!

Intermediate
Clay Martin 1st 65,53 118

Recreational
Randy Beavers 1st (and first tournament) 61,58 119 Randy is also a dwarf.

Novice
Chuck Sommer 1st 64,61 125

That will have to do for now....

A lot of people helped in many ways. First off, thanks to John for helping design the course, directing the tournament, and for teaching me many things. He has set us up for future tournaments and I couldn't have asked for a better person to learn from. THANKS to JOHN!

Also, we had about 7 first time tourney players and 6 states represented. (TN, SC, Oregon, NC, SC, and GA) Thanks to Vern Williams for helping get the word out to the TN players and for donating CTPs. Thanks for a good Athens showing.

Thanks to Jim Simpson for playing, covering the tournament, and for writing the newspaper article for the local paper.

Thanks to all people that helped with scoring, especially Brett Porter and Mr. Barry Arnson.
Thanks to all people that donated CTPs along with Vern...Fred Williams, Lee Minehart, Justin Romito, Innova (donated 18 DX second round) and the others I didn't know about...

OK, I could keep going, so I'll stop. Basically, I was running around like a chicken with my head cut off and a lot of people stepped up and helped! I'm carefully looking at everything from this weekend and slowly learning many new things so that the next Meeks Tournament will be even better. So hold tight...you probably won't see scores until Wednesday.... Unless you were first place, get out and practice, stop analyzing your ratings, and get off this message board...the weather is nice and you have more daylight.

Thanks for letting me help! If any of you have any concerns, please let me know by PM.
