The 2013 Thanksgiv-Fling Results and Wind-up

videoRossland, BC - The event went off without a hitch.  The weather was perfect, the turnout was great and the frolf was to die for.  45 of Rossland's finest showed up on Saturday morning to take part in this year's RFA Fling disc golf tournament.  With a chill in the air the registration was smooth and the groupings were made.  Players of all ages and abilities set out to tackle the recently upgraded course and the course was theirs for the taking.  There were some great results after the first round, with a two way tie at -2 in the NOTSOPRO (or were they?) category and a -6 and -4 in the PRO category.  The Birds had 8 women compete and it was a very close first 18.  The Flying Steamshovel supplied the crowd with deep fried turkey and fixins and Blaine and Sleemans.ca supplied a few woobly pops to get the 2nd round off with a bang.  In the final round, the PRO category was a ding dong battle.  Peach stretched his 2 stroke lead to 4 after 2 holes and played well enough to put up a -5, finishing the 2 round tourney at 11 under par.  Fochuk and Fry (-4 and -2 respectively after round 1) battled throughout the entire 2nd 18 with Fry edging Foch by one stroke finishing -5 to Foch's -4.  Congrats to all the PRO's and Peach's 1st championship since the inaugural event after 4 second place results.  In the NOTSOPRO category, Jay and Silent Bob (Actually Johnny Linsday) were -2 after the first round and 2 strokes ahead of Bowman and one other.  Their play was exemplary as was their demeanor.  Jay held on to take the title from Johnny finishing Even for the tournament and booking him a place in the PRO category in 2014.  Well done and welcome my friend...  Michelle once again took the LADIES crown with 2 fantastic rounds.  The competition stayed with her for a while but in the end her distance off the tee and accurate mid ranges were too much for the rest of the field.  The 2 time champion was excited to take home some great prizes and  bragging rights to her beau (Mark, the 2011 NOTSOPRO champ)!  The RFA would like to thank everyone that made the event possible, The Flying Steamshovel and affiliated businesses, Blaine Benner and Sleemans Brewing, The Trio (Jock, Alan and Craig), The Black Jack Nordinc Centre, The Rossland Telegraph and everyone that came out to enjoy the end of season fiasco.  

We hope you all had a great time and see you next year at the 2014 RFA Fling Disc Golf Tournament!

Thanksgiv-Fling Update

Due to budgetary constraints the prices for the tourney will go as follows...

PRO - $45 ($15 into the PRO pot)
NOTSOPRO - $30
LADIES - $30

These costs will allow the RFA to cover all of their expenses and hopefully put a little money aside to keep the course in great shape for everyone to enjoy.  Everyone will receive 1 free Innova Mid-Range Disc, a turkey lunch including deep fried turkey and fixins, 2 rounds of frolf at the beautiful Thin Air Frolf Course, good times and chances at tons of great prizes...

Hope to see you all out there,
