With a personal best (PB) round of 80, Dylan bests Steve and Josh for his first win as a Chainracker. With the win, Dylan now has 17 points and has moved up into solo 5th in the points race. Josh, also with a PB of 80, was bettered in the CTP for second by Steve, who tied his PB of 91. With the 5 points for second place, Steve is in the hunt for 5th with a total of 15 points. Hal took 4th and also has 15 points. Austin rounds out the top 5 and has secured himself a 2nd place finish in the 2013 points race. Josh, with his 3rd place finish, will be our 2013 Points Champion!!! December will be a victory round for Josh!! Check out the 2013 Club page for full standings and if there are any mistakes let me know. (Thanks Ryan & sorry) Eventhough Dallas was not in the top 5 he also tied his PB. Yes Hal you also tied your PB, but its the 6th time you’ve thrown a 75!! It was nice to see Jack at the monthly. August of 2011 is the last score we have for you Jack!! Cory and Dean threw their 1st rounds in a Chainracker monthly and hopefully they’ll get their other 2 qualifying rounds in before Decembers monthly. Trivia question…..Which Chainracker do you believe has shaved the most strokes off their first tournament round?? Keep ‘em flying’—-JBK
February 2012 was the last time John took home a black mini. He took home October’s mini with a bogey free round of 71. John’s net score of 76 was 4 strokes better than second place Dallas. Third place went to Ryan. Fourth and fifth went to Pete and Rob. Josh remains our Championship Points leader with 36. Austin is still 7 points behind at 29. They will be the only ones battling for first place. Ben and Pete are tied at third with 21 points. Ranging in points from 13 down to 8 there are 8 players in a battle for 5th. One those 8 players is Marie. We have not seen her in a few months due to an uncooperative body. She is regaining her energy and strength and hopes to be out before the end of the year. Use this forum to send her your well wishes or your wishing well….ness. Keep ‘em flyin’–JBK
Jason & Aaron Stanford showed up and took home 10 of the Championship Points. Jason got his first Chainracker win by throwing 2 strokes better than Dylan and Josh. Aaron threw 1 stroke better than Dallas to take 4th. The points went to: Jason, Dylan, Josh, Aaron, Dallas. With only three monthlies left, Josh has a 7 point lead over Austin and 14 over Ben in the race for the 2013 Champion. Pete is down by 17. Everyone else is mathematically eliminated. Should be fun to watch. Josh will need to be on top of his game. Austin is defending Champion. Ben has only shown up 3 times this year and has won all 3!! Pete has a tough road to hoe. He would need to win all 3 remaining monthlies and have the 3 above him run into some serious OB!!! Top five in points: Josh=35, Austin=28, Ben=21, Pete=18, Hal=11. Check Club Championship for full points board. Until October Monthly..Keep ‘em flyin’–JBK
Ben took 1st Place (with a New Personal Best) for the Second Time this year — and he’s won 1st both times he’s attended so far this year!!! Austin also had a New Personal Best, coming in 2nd, while Josh followed closely for 3rd Place. Dylan got 4th and Steve rounded out the day for 5th Place. Dallas and Ryan completed their second rounds towards their handicaps.
For the 2013 Championship, Josh has a strong lead in First, while Austin, Pete and Ben are currently tied for Second. Handicaps changed for Ben (from -11 to -9), Austin (from +7 to +8) and Josh (from -5 to -4). See you on the course….. Marie
Though Clay played in the March 2013 monthly, I’m going to ignore that so the headline reads better. It was after the monthly of 2010 that Clay disappeared until this year. Family life has a way taking precedent over other pleasures. His raw score of 80 looks to be a personal best by 6 strokes!! Way to go Clay and congrats on your win. Austin (with a new PR), Josh, Hal, and Marie filled out the 2nd thru 5th spots in that order. Marie took 5th in a CTP by besting Nate, another Chainracker that has also not been seen since June of 2010. Sorry I missed seeing you Nate. The rest of the field was filled in with players that completed their first round towards a Chainracker handicap. Thanks for coming out Dallas, Dylan and Ryan. Not a bad showing either. One with an 85 and the other 2 posted 86′s. Hope the July monthly weather stays under the century mark!!!! Until I see you on the course…Keep ‘em flyin’
At the end of 27 holes Josh and Pete tied with scores of 79. Pete won the flip and elected to throw second on the CTP. Josh put his disc within 6 feet and Pete did not throw closer allowing Josh to win for the second time this year. Austin, Marie & John finished 3rd, 4th and 5th. Both Josh and Pete shaved a stroke off their handicaps. Pete tied his personal best of 102 and Josh shot in the 80′s for only his second time. Won’t be long before Pete breaks 100 and Josh goes under 80!! Josh takes a commanding lead in the points race with 23. Austin is second with 14 and Pete is third with 13. No other players are in double digits. No Championship points were awarded in April. Hal and Pete were the only ones to show and they only played 18 holes. Hopefully we will have at least 2 groups on the course at our June monthly.

It did not matter that Pete found the penalty hazard on #5 more than once, he still took first by 2 strokes over 2nd place Austin & 3rd place Josh. Hal placed 4th and Jason out CTP’d Geoff for 5th. A big welcome back from the Chainrackers to the Dagler family, Clay, Micaela, and Peter. Those in our group had the honor of seeing Micaela birdie #1 teepad from 130′!!! Her disc hyzered in from the right side perfectly!!! Another Chainracker welcome goes out to Rose for attending her first Chainracker monthly. Hope to see you at future monthlies Rose.
Since clocks have been reset, Tuesday night weeklies begin again starting this week at 6pm.
Ben took 1st Place! Josh came in 2nd via a playoff with Mike (who took 3rd). Steve grabbed 4th in another playoff against Hal, who rounded off the day for 5th Place. Congratulations, everyone!
There are a few changes to handicaps as a result of the February Monthly — John dropped to Add 5, Hal dropped to Add 3 and Mike dropped to Sub 6. It will be interesting to see how the rest of the year plays out….See you on the course,
The frost was thick and slippery on a cold morning in January, with discs sliding along the grass and slipping through the chains, when Josh scored a New Personal Best — 9 points better than his previous record! — taking First Place for the January 2013 monthly, as well as reducing his handicap. Way to go, Josh!!!
Geoff also scored a New Personal Best, taking Second Place, plus he reduced his handicap, too. Good Job, Geoff!
Austin brought in Third Place, and his handicap is now the same as John’s right-hand handicap. (Do we have a future World Champion in our midst?)
Jason took Fourth Place and improved his handicap by 3 points, while Rob drove down all the way from Citrus Heights to take Fifth Place for January.
Congratulations to one and all!
The forecast for February isn’t quite so frosty, but it’ll still be mighty chilly. Be sure to bring your handwarmers!
See you on the course…..Marie
Austin, Ben and Steve all made New Personal Bests during the December monthly, and everyone that played that day ended up with a change to their handicaps! Be sure to check the Handicaps page for current numbers.
Steve took 1st Place for December, followed by Austin, Ben, Josh and Hal.
The winner of the 2012 Championship is Austin, who took 1st Place with 40 points for the year. Adam came in 2nd with 32 points, followed by Hal with 23, and Ben and John each with 22 points. Hope you all enjoy the new clipboards for keeping score!
The forecast for January’s monthly is freezing but no snow. Bring a dry pair of socks and plenty of towels….. See you on the course….Marie
