man it was sooooo f'in coo to see all those future pro disc golfers out there today. shelia did a awesome job with the girls. and i'm proud to say my girls are new owners of a val jenkins sign'd ice bowl stamped S.O.L.F(??????) and a dion sign'd GLO stalker. thank you guys so much for you donations. also big thanks to chris.kyle,mike,shelia, and all the parents that were out there in the rain.
Quinn's review of the juniors clinic... "That was really fun!"... repeated several times on the drive home.
Considering the downpours we drove through on the way to and from Riverside I'd say the weather was pretty darn cooperative today. Quinn had a great time and came home with a pile of new discs, stickers and shirts, he's psyched to say the least. Looks like a whole new group of Frisbeetarians have been added to the flock. Thanks a heap Chris and all the rest that helped make this such a terrific event.
I want to thank all the kids and their parents for making the trip, it was a blast! We got the riverside love as far as the rain is concerned for sure.
Things went pretty well when the main concern is how to give away all the discs, minis, shirts, stickers, towels, and stuff I think we did all right. Each kid got atleast 3 discs (1 with a signature from someone better than most), a shirt, minis, stickers, and even a pencil. Parents standing around got some plastic and other stuff, even some random dude walking around got a free disc. I still have a few things left over. The sponsor support was amazing 90+ discs, 40 shirts, 70+ minis, 100+ stickers, towels, patches, pencils, three legged dogs, and 1 unicorn all divided between 15 kids and anyone else that was around when I needed to get rid of something.
The sponsor support was nutty.

I had a bunch of fun and I am positive we got a few kids hooked, mission complete. I plan to run this event every year for as long as possible. Catering is already set up for next year. Thanks again. PICS HERE. and a couple videos of the ring of fire.
I heard a couple of really good reviews on Saturday night about the clinic. The ring of fire pro wants to play her first tournament asap. Thanks to everybody for putting the clinic together and to all of the people who donated their time and prizes.
The only negative thing I heard was dissapointment from the kids about not being able to get out there again on Sunday. Definite success.
man i have to honest. sitting here watching my youngest golf pro kickin some ass at the ring of fire. i started to cry i was so proud. then i saw my oldest pro breaking out the with her turbo putting( with a DISCRAFT tourqe) man tell u what i was on a cloud way high then 9. man dan the battle our girls had in that r.o.f was epic. she still talks about it and she was hella happy to go to school and talk about it. the hooks are difently set in my girls. i think val has some thing to worry about from these young pro in training we got around here........lol
