..I'm glad to see that you moved up after that last blistering round at Tyler.

...hopefully I can compete well a HR and then try to hang on at FEW.

...it will be a great weekend of disc golf regardless.

...SOLTY always gets it done right!

Man, I wish I was moved over to West Virginia already, I would come and play! Hopefully it will be on next year and I can come throw my discs at some trees! Mike, are there any PA tourneys near Pittsburgh later in the summer? I am moving to Morgantown in mid July.

Ya let me know man, if you are going I will try and get up there. I ran the idea by my wife and she did not seem to keen on it. We will only have been in WV for like three weeks. But I may be able to talk her into it!

93 total players right now
there are 6 players with PDGA numbers under 7200
32 of the 72 pro spots are gone
61 of the 90 am spots are gone
13 different state are being represented (PA, NJ, NY, DE, NC, KS, MI, VA, MD, TN, FL, MO & Ottawa)

I'm sure you are happy with this, but this will be my last GPO post!
Courses are trimmed up and looking great!
We are hoping to have triple digits in # of players, and are almost there! Come join us for what is supposed to be a beautiful weekend in the Poconos! 85 and sunny both days this weekend!
As you can see, I'm excited, the Bearclaws are excited and you too should be excited to be playing the Great Pocono Open!

See you there!
