The 1st Ice Bowl at Branson Cedars Raised $1000 and Food for Christian Action Ministries (CAM)! - Jan 31st, 2016

I can't think of an Ice Bowl that I've been a part of that had better weather. I looked up the high for today in Springfield and it was 67! Absolutely unheard of for this area in January. The perfect temperatures brought out nearly 60 players to the Branson Cedars N"Ice Bowl"!

This Ice Bowl was to benefit the Christian Action Ministries (CAM). I am very excited to announce that along with 100+ cans of food we raised $984! I will be turning in a check for $1,000 to CAM. On behalf of Michael Michael Hyams and Branson Cedars, we say thank you so much for your generosity! Special thanks to Seth for his big contributions to the raffle and a congratulations for winning 3/4 of the prizes including the Innova Discatcher Sport!

There were seven divisions which included: Open, Advanced, Advanced Masters, Advanced Grand Masters, Intermediate, Recreational, and Women's. It was awesome to see regulars, as well as, blasts from the past ( Carl Jackson Doug, Rob, & Ted), and players that traveled quite a ways to play like Billy Lund & Chris Hutchinson (Tulsa) and the ultimate Road Warrior Justin Mount from Dixon, Illinois. Justin said he drove 8 hours to get to Cedars to play. Great turn out!

Congratulations to Sandy Renner Leech who took home the 1st place trophy in the Women's division. She informed me after the event that one of her kids from her school came and finished 3rd in the Rec division! Great first tourney Jackson, and keep on bringing those kids Sandy!

In the Rec division Nathaniel J Million bested Brandon Shields by only one in a great battle.

The Intermediate was won by Joshua Lane by 3 strokes Matt Williams and one off him was Seth Black. Another pretty close field.

Jon Parsons and Brad D. Hilton battled it out in the Grand Masters division with Jon taking home the win by 2 strokes.

Hutch had a convincing win in the Advanced Masters division shooting a 54 that was 5 better than Daniel Scott Williams 2nd place performance.

Jon McCain from Joplin dominated the Advanced field shooting a 55 that held off Kyle Cooper 57.

In the Open Division, Billy Lund's 49, won over my 51 3rd place, and Shayn's 50.

Congratulations to all who cashed and to the over all winners!

Again, thanks to all of you for coming out and supporting CAM. I hope to see you next week at True Life for the TLB and in two weeks back at True Life for The Year of the Monkey's first PDGA event of 2016 the Presidential Cup. Registration is Open!

The Year of the Monkey Tour 2016 - Jan 22nd, 2016

Today at 11:53 PM
Many of you have been asking about my tour schedule and now it is time to bring in the Year of the Monkey Tour 2016 Calendar As you can see at the bottom there are still a few tourneys pending dates. There will more than likely be a tournament in October. I will repost as soon as the date(s) are confirmed.

As Disc Golf continues to Boom, it was more difficult than ever to organize and schedule a tour. Thanks to all cities, clubs, churches, and Co- TD's for your cooperation and letting DGM be a part of your tournaments. Also, a big shout out to Michael Glen Porter for helping me try to avoid bigger/local events. We did our best and we are ready to fly!

There are many Tour Sponsors again this year and negotiations are still being made. If you'd like to be a part in helping with the sponsorship of the Year of the Monkey Tour give me a shout out!

Make note that the first PDGA event is the True Life Presidential Cup. Notice that it will also be in Febrrrrrrrrruary. I was asked why I didn't have PDGA events in the winter, and I didn't have a good answer so Pastor Nick DeRosa and I brainstormed and scheduled one. It should be a fun kick off event. Registration is now open at Disc Golf Scene

I look forward to seeing you all this season. Thank you for another opportunity to provide events that offer players quality players packs, great payouts, and lots of fun!

I can't wait to let the discs Fly! See ya soon!

The Bear Hollow Ice Bowl in Ava kicks off the New Season - Jan 18th, 2016

The 2nd Annual Ava Ice Bowl to benefit the Heart of the Hills Food Pantry was definitely a true "Ice Bowl" as the temperatures were well below freezing for the first round of play. I'm sure many were hoping for the 60+ degrees that we played in last year, but that was not the case. We had more players than degrees with 37 players and a high of 36. It was fortunate that there was little to know wind which made play tolerable.

Nick Helm and I plan on meeting tomorrow and going over all the totals of food and money raised. Thank you to all for your support! This was another fun and successful fundraiser.

There were 7 divisions this weekend. Open, Adv, Adv Master, Adv Grand Master, Int, Rec, and Women.

There was some very good battles in a few of the divisions. Staci Healry was the only lady that came out. Thanks for coming and enjoy that trophy girl!

There were seven in the Rec Division. Blaise Horseman pulled a "Nick DeRosa" and sand bagged his way to a dominate win shooting a 94. The 94 score was not only was 8 strokes better than Josh Lane's 2nd place, it also would have won in all other divisions except for the Open division. On a serious note, Great playing Blaise!

Like the Rec Division, the Intermediate division consisted of a field of seven as well. This division was far from a run-a-way however! Nick Helm (the Ice Bowl TD) and Don Fite fell one stroke short of making it a 3 way tie for first with their pairs of 104's. Dustin Boyd's 103 was just enough to take home the 1st place Trophy. Great job guys!

There were 4 players in the Advanced Grand Master division. This was another close battle. It was so close that it had to be settled in a play off between Ray Presnell and Lebanon's Brad Hilton. Their 95's were 3 better than the road warrior Jon Parsons from Marshall. Ray ended up winning the tie break in the first hole of the play off. Exciting finish fellas. I'm confident you guys will be battling all year!

Three players battled in the Advanced Masters Division. Despite George Eudy shooting the hot round (51) of the group in the first round, Nick DeRosa came back from a 3 stroke deficit to win by 2. JD Williams, was still in the hunt but he couldn't quite come back from his first round par round. Nice battle guys!

The Advanced field had 5 players in it. Chris Cleland came from behind to win by 2 over Jon Cook and 4 over TJ Hahn. Chris shot an exceptional 45 the second round that lead him to victory. Keep up the competition guys.

The largest division with nine players was the Open division. As expected the best scores were shot by players in the Open field. Mark Anderson's 88 was good enough for last cash. Shayn Woltz and Mike Porter tied for 2nd with 87's. The real deal though was Jeff Renner who was the overall champion as he massacred the course and the field shooting 38 & 40 rounds. His 78 was crazy awesome. Congratulations Jeff keep it up!

Other winners included the 3 players who shared the ace pot: Chris Cleland, Don Fite, and Dustin Boyd shared Approximately $150. Keep those Aces coming!

Jeff Tenner won a Ranger bag in the raffle, and Josh Lane won the Innova Discatcher Sport.

Congratulations again to all the winners. The next event will be at Branson Cedars on January 30th. Hope to see all of you there!!

The Winter Blast Should Have Been Called the Spring Fling with Temps Reaching 70 Degrees! - Dec 16th, 2015

70 degrees on the day of the Winter Blast was just nuts, but no complaints from this Arizona boy!
The Christian County Family Crisis Center will be given a check for $910 plus a lot of food and cleaning supplies. The CCFCC said that cleaning wipes were one of the the most needed items. With he huge donation from Chad and several other players, the need was definitely filled for a few months!

The break down for the above $910 raised:
24 players paid the $5 extra = $120
45 bought 1st round $5 mulligans = $225
43 bought 2nd round $5 mulligans = $215
Raffle/straight donation made $350

Along with the very successful fund raising for the CCFCC, the tournament was fun as well. We were blessed with an absolutely gorgeous day as 49 Players competed in the Winter Blast. We had 8 divisions that included: Pro, Pro Women, Advanced, Advanced Master, Intermediate, Intermediate Women, Recreational, and Juniors.

The over all champion shooting a perfect 18 down on the 1st round and a 12 down in the second (-30 for the day, was Josiah Durham. I was fortunate to watch as Josiah throw a perfect front 9 (no mulligans used) combining 8 perfect parked drives and one incredible down hill putt from 50+. His big lead allowed him to keep 3 strokes ahead of Jeff Renner who made a run in the second round.

Other winners included Brandy Monnahan (102) by one stroke over Jamie Helton (Women's Open), Jonathan Stokes turned in an 87 in the Advanced division that was 2 better than Josh Drecker and 3 better than Chris Cleland, Chris Wheat took down the Adv Master Division with a 98 which was two better than George Eudy and Tad Odum who were both hot on his tail, Don Fite prevailed in the Int division carding a 93which was 2 better than Tadge Kavanaugh and 3 better than Craig Goldsberry (who shot a remarkable 43 first round), Staci was the only Int woman and shot 123, Todd Anderson had a comfortable 4 stroke win over Chris Ryan and Blaise Horesman with a score of 98, and the only Junior Blake Pendegrass finished at 134. Congratulations to all for finishing on top.

There were a few other high lights today as well. 10 Turkeys and 4 hams were given away in the CTP Turkey Trot. The biggest winner of the day was Chris Cleland who slammed an Ace on hole 5 to capture the money in both the tourney Ace Pot and the rolling Monkey Tag Ace pot which cleared him a cool $400 Christmas shopping bonus! If you missed this event, you missed a fun one. See you next time!

On behalf of the CCFCC: to all of you who made this happen thank you for your continued support. My prayer is for all of you may be blessed for your contributions!!

What to Expect at The 5th Annual Winter Blast - Dec 9th, 2015

Only a few days away from The 5th Annual Winter Blast benefiting the CCFCC. Each year this event has helped the Women's Shelter in Christian County with food and money. Taking time and giving to this charity has been rewarding and a lot of fun.

There are so many new players in the tournament scene that I would like to explain what to expect at this tournament. As the flyer states the entry is $25 and $5 extra or 5 cans of food (which ever option you choose the extra will go to the CCFCC). Also, we will be selling mulligans. The money for this will also go to the CCFCC. There will again be a Turkey Trott which is a chance for players to win a ham or turkey (This year we have about 7 each. If you can bring one to donate please do. The more the merrier!). Players who save their mulligan tickets, win tickets for their 3 birdies in a row (turkeys) in the round, or purchase chances will compete in a CTP for the pigs and birds. We will also have a raffle. Come prepared to have a great time!

We will again be having chile for lunch. If you make a mean batch of chile please bring it with you. If you are able to bring crackers, bowls, napkins, spoons, shredded cheese, onions, or whatever you think may go well with chile please bring it with you.

I was asked about pay out. As always from the beginning of this event, there will be a payout. Like all DGM events, Ams will be paid out with vouchers, and Pros will be paid out in cash. So despite it being a charity event, it is still a great chance to put on your competitive best and come try to take home some loot!

See you all there!!



If you couldn't find what you needed for Christmas on Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, or Cyber Monday maybe we can help.

The Winter Blast December 12th... The Monkey's Last Tourney of the year! Benefiting the Christian County Family Crisis Center in Ozark - Nov 25th, 2015

With the 7th consecutive DGM Tour behind us, we will say good bye to 2015 and bring in 2016 very soon. This year will mark 5 year's that we have helped the Christian County Family Crisis Center at the Winter Blast. Each year the CCFCC is overjoyed and thankful for our local disc golfer's gracious support. Mary and others, who have been with the Center, have mentioned time and again that we truly make a difference each year at a perfect time of need.

This year we plan on selling a few mulligans, having a raffle, and doing the popular Turkey Trot as we do each year. If at all possible, PLEASE BRING RAFFLE ITEMS for the Raffle. I don't normally ask players to do this much, but I want this raffle to be larger than normal so we can help the CCFCC as much as possible. If you have something to donate please contact me and let me know.

As for the big needs for the CCFCC, as always food is the big one. Asylum Discs last year went over and above and donated a truck load of food which was incredible. Thanks again! This year, as you will find on the flyer, a special request for Baby Wipes and Clorox Cleaning wipes has been mentioned. There is a special raffle for those who bring either or both of those in hopes of getting those needed items (1st Run Whale, Leopard 3, and a bonus disc will be in this bonus raffle).

I hope to see you at the Ozark Flying Disc Golf Club Bag Tag event on the 5th and a week later at the Winter Blast! Have a Happy Thanks Giving and Aces to You!!
