GHIDN 2012 (Griffin Hill Invitational Disc Nocturnament)

My favorite photo for the night!  Who is that old dude?

Griffin Hill Invitational Disc Nocturnament (GHIDN)

November 3, 2012, at night!
This is a great alternative to Halloween or a reason to have Halloween..

The Theme/s this event were
Superhero (make one UP)
DD (what is this?)

2012 has been a good year for the pursuit of Leisure!  Disc golf (see for what this is) has been one of the mainstays for time well spent.  Monday night random doubles tournaments at Lake Stevens saw The Count take in maybe a bit more money in prizes than he spent on entrance fees.

GHEDI's were both a success at the Equinoxes of the year.   The GHIDN was an excuse to play disc golf at night and in costume.

The short story is 12 bodies showed UP and a bit of rain but a good time was had by all.

Photos tell the story for initial posting.

Black Light has an effect on a fancy doo!

The loot we were all playing for.  We had three returning, old
time trophies, The Nutcracker, the 2nd Place Trophy (the big
one) and a nice bottle with a silver cup.

Lea braids again.
She also brought some amazing cookies!

Random notes and comments from Count Enrico:

The after math was easy to clean UP after with one 'Torpedo' beer bottle on a fence post and one bent can left at Tee 10.

There is still a lost disc that Bling threw, forgetting to turn on the lights.  So far, no horse, dog, or human has seen it in the vicinity where it was thrown.

Hawkeye claimed the blue disc towel left in the world's largest tee after a lost and found was posted.

Bee Eh? won the PCMI award, hands down!  (Pussy (who) Couldn't Make It).  He claimed he had to cook dinner for his wife and maybe some other guests....  It is appropriate as this award was one he made UP for the last tournament.  Very fitting.

The food was great!  Bling brought some great ham and bean soup, while the Count put together some posole and did some brauts on the BBQ.  DD brought in lots of chicken that was evil and really good.  The dogs were drooling as they watched the humans devour that stuff!   Good chips and snacks.  The real disappointment were Uncia Uncia's cookies... There were only enough for one each!  YUMMMMMMM!  We all wanted more of these!

An umbrella was a good idea for the nocturnament as the rain put out about 1/2 of the luminaries.  We should have closed the top of the bag and risked a small bag burn.  It was plenty wet.  

A good idea was for all players to wear a glow ring so we could see each other on the course.  The dogs all had one on for collars.  4 dogs all having too much fun.  The home dogs took two days to get unstiff from all that running.  Amazingly that is what it took for the Count to get going too...
