Help a discgolfer who lost everything in Joplin, MO

Postby Solty » Mon May 23, 2011 7:11 pm

I received a telephone call today from a great friend, Russ Burns of Disc Golf Monkey, reaching for help for a disc golfer in Joplin, Missouri. Russ, who is like a brother, was quite distraught to tell me that disc golfer, Pat Wooley(PDGA #24059) lost everything. Mother Nature’s fury unleashed hell on Joplin and Pat survived, while others were not so fortunate.

Pat, a former avid trader on here on DGR(readysetstab) and newcomer to the Pro scene in the Midwest needs our help. I am asking you for some help. If you or your club can spare an extra 2x shirt or some plastic….Pat would be muchly appreciated. Pat throws heavy wizards, heavy teebirds and leopards, and the most overstable of plastics like spirits, extremes, firebirds, max and xcalibers.

If you can help, please let me know at talkdiscgolf@gmail.com and I’ll pass along an address where you can send items to.

I personally thank anyone and everyone who can help out.

Mike & the TALKdg staff.

I tried to buy some 2x shirts fro him over at DGCR, but got no reply, so I guess I won't be able to send DG related shirts, but I can send some shirts and squeeze a couple discs in the box.

That's really rough, but I'll do what I can to help out a fellow Missourian, let alone a fellow DG'er! I have a couple of wizards I got at the STL Open I can send his way.

What else does this guy need? Does he throw Zones, cause that is really the only overstable stuff I have. Other than that though what else does he need. I am sure we could as the generous DGR community that we are, send him a whole spectrum of stuff to help him rebuild his household. PM his info Solty and let us know if there is other stuff we can send.

I am sending out a box with 3 discs, a dri-fit Polo, and a Nalagene bottle.
Between the 2 sites this guy should be hooked up and ready to hit the course to take his mind off the chaos in Joplin for an hour.

I have a couple Wizards, a new Max, and maybe a well-beaten Xcalibur lying around. Russ lives up on the north side of my town, so I'll give him a call.

Also, I didn't realize how many Midwesterners frequented this board.

Apparently you missed the whole tornado that wiped the town off the face of the map.
