GHEDI Fall 2016

The Griffin Hill Equinox Disc Invitational The GHEDI
took place September, 25, 2016 (A Sunday)

This is a semi-annual event held in celebration of life and marking the
legitimate holiday of equal day and night (Equinox).

A record turnout to take in the sun on a perfect fall day.  Registration was at 9:30 and play started on time at 10 AM.  There were 34 bodies recorded on the score sheet including 4 rookies who had only thrown disc a couple of times.  There were others playing on this course for the first time that tried for rookie status but since they have 400' throws! They were put in the Open Category.

The scorecard!

Warning:  We may need to limit participation as this population was stretching the course ability for safety.


A new Course Record was set by Cajun at -16, eclipsing AJ's record of -15 set a couple of years ago.

Jerry Garcia hit the only real Ace and collected the Ace Pot!  There were at least 2 *Aces too by other players.  The Ace King (self named) did not get any of these!  One has to question the ego that takes this lofty title....

Turbo took home the $$ that was close to triple digits in playing Skins after the tournament.  He also picked up a CTP worth $30.  Bling and Hawkeye each took a CTP too.  The other is unknown at this writing.

Good Food:

The potluck was a great success with too much food.  Most of it was consumed with at least 6 hot dishes of posole, fagoili, rice, meatballs, sliders and crab bisque as the notable dishes.  Also notable was the two boxes of beautiful donuts that were not touched as much as one would suspect.  Maybe a dozen were consumed.  Maybe this crowd is staying away from the sugar and eating healthy.  There were sliced apples and magic toffee as well as some consumable lozenges that came with the Bloody Mary Truck.

Lost items:

A trifold disc stool that says "BA" on it was found on the #1 tee.  A black folding chair was left in the clubhouse too.  Apparently two discs were left behind, according to reports, one in the pumpkin patch and one over the fence by target #5.

BAD behavior:

Someone needs a lesson in manners...  A Camel cigarette butt was left by Tee 16 and 3 other filters with cream spots were found about the course.  Maybe they fell out of the disposal bag but that is unacceptable.  Possible punishment?  Make them eat the discards?

Course Grooming:

There were two volunteers who came by early in the week to assist with course grooming, Jerry Garcia and the Scorekeeper.  Kudos to them!  The course looked better than ever and all who came had good things to say about it.
