It has been awhile since I have written a real, honest to goodness blog post, not just some late night half-hearted beer-tinged snide comment such as "no, really, your mama said to hold that shit!".
Well my esteemed readers, this night is the night when I return to my literary roots, my latin roots, as it were, and, as I am sure my extremely intelligent and well educated audience will infer, the latin root of literary is debatable. Some think the root is "litter" as in " I littered bogeys all over my scorecard", or "Liter" as in " I drank 10 liters of beer before I tried to have a rap battle with Dallas". Either way, I am sure that most of you are skeptical by now if this post will have any point or will just be a wandering train of thought with no good substance. While, if I were a betting man, I would put money on the latter (not to be confused with litter), I will still attempt an informative and, perhaps, if the gods of the keyboard permit, entertaining discussion of what happened last weekend. (P.S. I will not mention at any point the fact that nobody wrote up my 7 stroke win 2 weekends ago, or wonder out loud if there was any regular Sunday tourney last weekend)
Sooooooo- well a bunch of us went to Willits last weekend. The weather kinda sucked ass. It was pretty much rainy, cloudy, windy, cold, muddy and wet the entire time. I think the sun might have come out Saturday afternoon, or it might have been the one round of lairs dice where I was playing well so it just felt nice. We played disc golf. It was kinda hard. I had a fun time.
It was really nice to see so many "new" club members come out at play in the tourney. When I showed up on Friday, our club had Hawk, Whip, Chris, Greg, Jeremy, Jake? (I think) and Craig playing doubles. By Saturday we also had Me, Derrick, Jim, David, Nathan, Ryan, Rusty, Jason, Erin and AJ join the mix. I think we can fairly say, the MCFC represented.
I have a bunch of thank you's, so here goes. Thanks D-roc and Double-D for getting the campsites (and G for hooking up the Depot!) Thanks to Franny, Dirka, Ryan and Kara for the delicious food. Thanks G and David for joining me in rap battling all the other crews friday night. Thanks AJ for playing Sunday. Thanks Jake, Nathan and Hawk for come out and watching my rounds and having such a good attitude. Thanks Craig, AJ, and D-roc for playing with me. I could keep going on...Thanks everybody!
Many people played well. I am going to cheat on this one, but I think the following people got paid: Erin shot -16 to place 9th in Open (oh btw you are supposed to say "yeah" after each name) In Am 1 D-roc shot -7 to finish 12th, I shot -4 to finish 17th. In Grandmaster Flash, G shot 10 up to finish 4th and in rec, Hawk finished at 12 over for second (including a -6 second round! holy shmolys!) and Nate "Bags-a-lot" took third at plus 18.
Did I miss anything? Ok so the recap was not a literary masterpiece. Then again, the tourney wasn't that pretty either. But kinda like the 2nd choice girl you took to prom, things worked out, you had a good time, and in the end, maybe you got a little more out of it than if you had the date you were hoping for. Lets us hope this isn't the last dance for the MCFC.
