The 2012 FALL FLING, another one in the books...
Rossland, BC - In a last minute effort, the Rossland Frolf Association put on a great Fall Fling disc golf tourney to make it their 5th annual event. The weather was perfect, as was the course, vistas and play by all contestants. Approximately 30 Frolfers took to the course to battle the 18 holes, make new friends and try to find some hidden treasures. In the PRO category, the competition was tight after the first round with only 4 strokes seperating the top 5 players. The second round proved to divide the men from the boys with Buzzsaw shooting a tournament low of -7, running away with his second straight Fling Crown. Peach, who struggled in the first round bounced back from 4 strokes down (5th place) to shoot a -3 and for the 4th year in the last 5 ended up in second place. Courtney shot 2 steady rounds of par frolf and took 3rd place. Penner dominated the NOT SO PRO category finishing +4 and taking the win by 6 strokes over a field of 18 disc golfers. Chantal was just shy of spectacular taking her first LADIES Fling championship. She shot +1 in round one and bettered her effort in the second round with and even par. Michelle finished a close second and followed up her 2011 victory with a second place finish, just off of Chantal's torrid pace. A special thanks goes out to Chris Bowman for making the day possible with all of his hard work. Also, thank you to Blaine Benner for the prizes and wobbly pops, The Flying Steam Shovel for the super lunch time grub, The Rossland Frolf Association for supplying the effort, Reimer Drywalling for the marker discs and Black Jack Nordic Centre for the wonderful venue. ~WHAM'O
