The First Annual Prestigious Fuzzy Pony Disc Golf Tournament was played in near mystical conditions on Sunday March 29, 2009. With the sun glistening through the ice cycles dangling from the old oaks, 29 stalwart soles braved calm winds, 50 deg + temperatures, warm sunshine, award winning beer, brauts, burgers, music and endless laughter to compete for the most coveted Disc Golf trophy in all of Baldwin City. Thanks to all who attended and congratulations to our champions; Open – Justin Atwater-Taylor, Grand Master – Hal “Baby” Kurz, Master – Mark Martin and Adv – Chad Rutledge.
