****Save the Date ~ Saturday, May 4th, the 6th Annual FLHW Doubles Shootout at the beautiful Thornfield disc golf course in Stilwell, KS.****

Putting this out here so you all are aware. This year is very special. Please see a personal note from Mary, Davids wife.

FLHW will be hosting the event in honor of David Emerson, Founder of the Faith Love Hope Win foundation. David's personal battle with advanced prostate cancer ended October 5, 2012. This event had a special place in his heart. I welcome you all to join us to enjoy the day, remember David, and help us to continue the fight against prostate cancer. Please go to our website at www.flhw.org. Event details are on the Events tab and registration will be available soon. Updates will also be made on the Faith Love Hope Win Facebook page. I hope to see you all out there on the 4th! ~Mary

I definitely want to be a part of this. As one that lost my father to cancer in '05 I always look for ways to raise money and awareness.

Thanks for the early support! I really appriciate it! I have big shoes to fill as David did so much to help me throw this event each year.

Here is one question, if I wanted to post flyers (which is hard from Tucson) who could help me? I'm sure I could have Rich Lodes or Pete Print them, but who do I need to talk to about posting them at the courses as well??


Spread the word and register early!!

Email me or call if you have any ideas (txt or pm too):

Also call if u want to register or have questions about playing.

Thanks so much for all of your hard work, Gary!

You guys always put on such a great tournament, and it's awesome to get to participate and contribute to such a great cause.  This will be my third year playing this tourney, and I look forward to it every year.  Looks like weather might play a role again out there, but nothing we can't handle!  See you Saturday!

I am sorry I can't make it out for this year's event. I feel that it would be nice to say goodbye to David properly. This event won't be the same without him.
