Just a heads up on these events coming up.  2 great courses not too far up the road.   Lamoni, IA

I haven't been in about 5 years, so I am hoping to go up Saturday, maybe Sunday.

An interesting proposition. The wife will be in Colorado so maybe I should be in Iowa!

Neither event is listed on the PDGA.  The dubs can not be a C-tier.

But it's interesting that both events are going to play each course once.  I liked Graceland and Hemmi says J&B is a must play private course.  I'd be up for the Saturday singles event.
j n b isnt private just cost 5 to play it  very fun bomber course

j&b is definitely one everyone should play!! graceland not so much.
so jim kelly sold j&b? thought he created it so he'd be able to smoke cigs and golf on the same land.

The first and only time I played this two event tourny was on my birthday in 2004 (rated 904) and I still get that damn song sang to me at tournaments. Thanks Jack.  I'm glad I checked this thread bc I've been waiting to go back to J&B Rolling Hills again. I haven't heard anything else about it?

confirmed from 2 others that Bob hasn't sold out yet! ;D

Opinions on the JNB v. Graceland, but overall 2 wonderful courses in the middle of essentially nowhere dictate that if you haven't had a chance to play on these places, you are not doing yourself a service as a disc golfer.

They are both wonderful places to play, and though JNB can be a little "rougher" at times it is still maintained very well, and has a multitude of shot selections that will leave you wondering in the balance of what needs to be done next.

If you are on the fence, be sure that you didn't cross over the exit ramps, and then head on out there to play one the days.  Make your schedule work, unfortunately mine was already done for me, and I will miss playing this another time again......URGH!
