GHEDI 2012 Disc Golf Fall Classic

Did you ever have a fantastic day?  Many things can go into one but September 23, 2012 might be one of the best for Count Enrico Ferrari.

Griffin Hill Equinox Discgolf Invitational
Fall 2012
Items to consider:
Perfect fall weather, morning to night in the mid 70s and full sun all day.
Griffin Hill Equinox Disc Invitational was this day.
15 disc friends showed UP
The Count played 46 holes of disc golf.  Tied a course record.   Most improved.  And more!
Too much food and all of it wonderful.  Kudos for the crab bisque!
A nice personal attitude adjustment that worked all day long.
Two dog showers after everyone went home on VERY swamped UP dogs.
Awards ceremony with too much loot to distribute.   Extras will carry over to next tournament.  Everyone got a prize!
New awards showed UP and were very cool.  Need to document these awards with photos.
The estate was prepped and groomed and everyone commented on how nice the place looked, which was very rewarding.
Sold my extra dinghy.
Had 5 dogs prowling around the place having dog fun.
The Countess road two horses while discs flew.  No horses hit by any discs.  Good wrangling!
Sitting around in dappled sunlight at the end of the day!

Happiness discourse:
My mother (Bodil Marie Sorensen) said “Happiness is doing”. 
Whether one is ballroom dancing, sailing, skiing, disc golf ( my own activities) everyone is happy and having fun.  My mother seems to be on to something. 

The attendees, minus the late boy Bling.  Just prior to taking the field for the singles round on the 18 hole course.
The Awards ceremony with too much good stuff to award!

Bee Eh! with his winning follow through for CTP during the
playoffs.  He bestowed the "2nd Place Trophy" on his
partner, Stranger.
