Which event is serving Hopslam?  That's the one I'm in on.
That'd be the "Call to the Bell's" Mini event at my place...only Bells products will be allowed for the event, unless you have a note from the owner of the brewery that you choose to bring, so in other words, you can bring your own Brew....or have a good note to talk about, which is ok with fine crafted beer as well....

Sean is right though this is a great cause, I never seem to be able to make it out to it though, the May month is tough for me to get to places for some reason.....

Just signed up.  I have never played in it before and wanted in the past.  Just got paid and have no excuses.  I signed up for two players.  I am really looking forward to it and have wanted to play but never did.

  Your webpage is awesome Dave.  Keep fighting brother.    I am super impressed with you what you have done with you 501-3c.  You have raised some serious scrilla. 

Go check out his page folks, it is really inspiring and will make you want to sign up.

‎10 teams paid, 12 more in the process of paying.... we're about half way to last years total!

Also, we have some great donations on the way as well as the infamous salmon burgers and Tallgrass beer!

I have a number of updates to share this week and I hate to spend so much of this update on my cancer battle but I just want to make sure itís clear what could prevent me from spending much time at the event on the 12th.  Yes, the event will go on as always, itís just that my participation might be a bit limited.

First I spent four days in the hospital last week with severe kidney issues. The cancer has spread and was preventing my kidneys from properly draining. I ended up having a procedure that by passes my bladder and drains all urine into temporary collection bags. These will be replaced by semi-permanent internal tubes tomorrow. The procedure is out-patient and I will be home by tomorrow afternoon.  Next week I return to the Oncologist and we will decide on the next steps and/or procedures to specifically address the prostate cancer itself.  Yes, it all really kind of sucks but after seven years of this fight, I just keep on keepiní on.

OK, enough of that, now you know.

Registration is moving along as it usually does, details are below. If you are playing and havenít paid or have yet to tell me please let me know as soon as you can, please.

We have a number of good sponsors but could always use more if you know of businesses etc that might want to donate items for team prizes or ring-of-fire etc.

25 teams are paid and registered:

I know there are a lot of events this year, (pehaps more choices than ever?) and we really appreciate all the support we receive for this cause from the Disc Golf community. Prostate Cancer will strike 1 in 6 men but if caught early well over 95% of men are treated and live long, healthy lives. I hope to see you there on the 12th not only supporting the cause but also enjoying this wonderful sport on a fantastic disc golf course!
