    Willamette Valley Winter Series!!

    Hello All,

    We are proud to announce the Willamette Valley Winter Series starting on Nov 13th at Alton Baker Park. There will be 9 events this winter to keep your discs in shape.

    Here is a general idea of the dates we are looking at. These are off-set by the Southern Oregon Winter Series to allow a full schedule. We are going to have some inevitable conflicts with other winter series in the state. It seems there simply aren't enough weekends in the year for all the Disc Golf we want to play in Oregon.......

    ALL OF THESE DATES ARE SET. LOCATIONS ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE AS WE GATHER ALL THE PERMITS:

    Nov 13th ……….@ Alton Baker Park

    Nov 27th……….@ Richardson County Park

    Dec 11th………..@Baker Bay County Park

    Jan 1st………….@ Orchard Point County Park

    Jan 15th………. @ Cottage Grove DGC

    Feb 5th ……….@ Perkins Peninsula County Park

    Feb 19th ………@ Westmoreland 18 Hole Course (Ice Bowl Food Drive?)

    Mar 5th……….@ Dexter State Park DGC

    Mar 19th.........@ Mystery Location

    Please get in touch with me if you would like to volunteer with the series. We always need baskets and help with course prep.

    The intention of this series is to support the Eugene Disc Golf Club and our efforts of turning the 2011 Eugene Celebration into the NW's next premier A-Tier.

    Sponsorship packages are available for the ENTIRE SERIES!!!

    $50 Cash or $100/Merchandise will get you a permanent tee sign for all 9 events. Please contact me for more information. Cheers,

    Thanks everyone, it's been an awesome year so far. I definitely learned a lot about what it takes to run smooth events. There are simple things you can do to prepare yourself for "crunch time". Those few minutes can be brutal when people are waiting to get their payout and all the scores are still being tallied. It's just about relaxing, being prepared, and not feeling rushed.

    Thanks for all your support and help this year. Stay tuned for more Pure Disc Golf .Com events in the near future. Our next tournament is planned for the first weekend in May at Alton Baker Park. The Emerald Valley Open will be a great opportunity to show the other park users how Disc Golf could incorporate into Alton Baker.

    Also, I had a great discussion with Cliff the Park Host from Perkins Peninsula County Park after the Series Finale. He expressed his regret for the park not looking as clean as it could because his back has been hurt. I quickly offered up the help of the Disc Golf Community. Cliff could be a great ally for us and with enough help we could make quick work out there. Please keep an eye out for information on upcoming work parties at Perkins Peninsula. I'd like to show our support and keep the ball rolling on a permanent course there soon. We also may put together the first event in the Willamette Valley Spring Series soon (April?) to keep Disc Golf fresh on their minds.

    Thanks again for everyone's support this Winter. It's been refreshing to see the new competitors in each division. I hope these events have boosted our confidence going into the larger events this summer. Cheers,

    Add me to the list... All of the events I played had tricky fun layouts and were run very smoothly. Great job Andrew, it was really nice to have a hometown series again!

    Updated Top 5 Events Points Leaders

    Here is an updated version of the Points Leaders. I found an error on the last one we posted for Dan Guill in the Advanced Division. He is in 4th place not 3rd, behind James Morse. Thanks

    See everyone tomorrow at Perkins Peninsula!! I put up the new map on the Eugene Disc Golf Club Facebook Page. http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=112079788820639

    Be ready for that sudden death playoff on Saturday Mr. Chilton.
    We'll see about that sucker! Let's just hope we both play better than last Sunday. What a poop shoot!

    Yah, I love Perkins Peninsula. I was 14 years old when I won my first Pro event ever at an OLE there. We have an outside chance of getting a seasonal layout there next fall. They are closed from Oct 1st through May 1st which would give us 7 solid months

    BTW Bryan,
    You and Ben Chilton are in quite the battle for Advanced. If you can pull out a win at Perkins this weekend it will put you into a sudden death playoff for the entire Series. Check out the Top 5 events points standings I posted earlier. You could replace your 98 with a 100 and gain the 2 points you need to catch him

    Sweetness! The Perkins tourney was one of my faves, excited to take on the "revamped" version. Once again, thanks for your hard work Andrew.

    Finale @ Perkins Peninsula

    Hello everyone,
    We are holding the finale at Perkins Peninsula County Park on Fern Ridge Reservoir. This park was the logical choice after Richardson was unavailable due to mud. I am going out tomorrow afternoon to make some twists and turns on the old course. This is sure to be the most grueling layout in the Series. Please let me know if you'd like more information. There are definitely many factors that weighed into our choice of this park. We could potentially have a seasonal course here during the winter months they are closed.

    Willamette Valley Winter Series Finale
    Perkins Peninsula County Park
    March 19th
    AM-$20
    Pro-$25
    8-9 Signups
